Our hundred pound German Shepherd, Schultz, has a new trick. It's called the Flying Carpet Ride.
I couldn't believe the first time I saw it. I was sitting at my computer, typing another chapter of my work in progress, when the furry beast ran into the front hall at a breakneck speed. He jumped, landed on the area rug that's in front of our door, and skidded across the hard wood floor.
"What the heck, Schultz?" I said.
He got off the rug and looked at me with his big pink tongue hanging out and a huge smile plastered on his silly face.
I shook my head and continued typing.
Fifteen minutes later, the nutcase ran into the hall and did it again.
Obviously the beast has had some experience doing this. I don't know how he discovered that the carpet slides when he runs and jumps on it, but it seems to be his new favorite game.
What will the dog think of next?
(I'm sorry, I don't have a video of this. If I ever catch him in the act, and am able to film it, I'll post it. It's hilarious!)
