Yesterday, I had a lot of teenaged girls over. They wanted to paint. So I got them some canvases, acrylic paints, paintbrushes and a drop cloth. They kept themselves busy for a couple of hours, creating great masterpieces.
When they were done, they cleaned up, and placed their artwork on the table, to allow it to dry. Then they went off to do whatever they do.
Meanwhile, our giant German Shepherd, Schultz, had to inspect what was on the table. With his nose. Nobody witnessed this activity, but it was pretty obvious what he had done. And it wasn't just his nose. His pointy ears were white, too.
"Schultz!" my daughter said when she saw him. "What did you do?"
He cocked his head and looked at her.
Apparently he wanted to create a masterpiece, too!
(We managed to clean his nose, but Schultz is still sporting white-tipped ears!)
