Before I tell my story, I have to take care of some unfinished business. A couple of you asked to see a picture of Evelyn, our new pet tree. Here she is:
Isn't she pretty?
Now for the story. This morning, I took our big German Shepherd, Schultz, for a walk. He likes to sniff around and munch on whatever he may find. This usually does not amount to much. Today, however, was a different story. His big old snoot landed on a pile of white stuff. Apparently he thought it smelled pretty good because he started munching.
"Schultz, drop it," I said.
He didn't listen. He kept munching.
I listened to the crunching sounds as he chewed whatever he had found. I couldn't imagine what on earth it was.
Finally, I pulled Schultz away from the pile and inspected it. Do you know what it was? Dried string cheese. Disgusting!
I don't know how he managed to eat that stuff without vomitting, but let me just say, I'm kind of nervous about what's going to come out the other end!
