A Bone Graveyard

First, I'd like to say I'm sorry for not being around the blogosphere much. I've been very busy with music performances and rehearsals, and haven't had time to post or visit everyone. It's not a bad problem to have, but I do miss reading everyone's posts on a regular basis.

Here's today's story:

Our German Shepherd, Schultz, has a special talent for decorating. When he was a puppy, he used to take the vent register covers off and put his dog food bowls in them. It was quite artistic. I thought he had lost his talent, because he hadn't done anything like that in a while.

I was wrong.

The other day, I looked out my window and saw a very strange sight. White things were sticking up all over my back yard.

Curious, I went to investigate. Do you know what they were? Dog bones! Schultz had arranged all his bones so that they stuck up vertically in the grass. It looked like a bone cemetery.

I have no idea how long it took him to do that, but he seemed pretty pleased with his work. He stood there, wagging his tail.

Apparently, he has a lot of time on his paws. Maybe I should put him to work cleaning my house!

Before I go, I'd like to wish a Happy Valentine's Day to all who celebrate it!

  4. Hi, dear Sherry!

    I have a feeling Bubba might have given Schultz a helping hand with the decorating. It seems like the kind of stunt your son would pull. :) If Schultz did it all by himself, then I'd try to catch him in the act. If you could get a video of him it arranging his bones it would surely go viral on You/Tube!

    Happy Valentine's Day, dear friend!

  8. A bone cemetery? Clever canine!
    But when it comes to creativity, Schultz will never outdo Bubba. Imagine a creative collaboration between those two?

  17. It's too bad you didn't have a camera set up to catch him doing that. That would have been something to see.

    1. I know. I really should have taken a picture of it, but I didn't think of it.

  19. Clever dog!
    Our German Shepherd's talents are in acting. Her specialty is acting like a poor, abandoned, abused dog who has been locked out of the house for months. (Real time, 5 minutes)

    1. My dog used to destroy things. He got into too much trouble doing that, so he's learned that building is much better.

    1. I'm sure the Golden Retriever in the other neighborhood would have been most impressed!

  23. Sounds like you have a very artistic dog. I wonder what he's trying to tell you. ;-)

    1. Probably that I should get him some sculpting materials and paint so he can keep himself busy making artistic masterpieces.

  24. My goodness, everyone in your household is so wonderfully creative. Schultz obviously doesn't read too many murder mysteries though as he obviously doesn't know the first thing about burying theevidence.

    1. I should give him some books to read. Or not. He'd probably eat them.
