There was a drippy nose in my household, and it wasn't mine. It wasn't my husband's, or my daughter's, or even Bubba's. It was Schultz's! He's our hundred-pound German Shepherd.
The hairy beast had apparently contracted a canine cold. He kept trying to wipe his nose with his paw. It wasn't working so well. My daughter saw this, and decided to help him out. She grabbed some tissues and wiped his big, black sniffer.
He thought this was some kind of game. He rolled on his back and tried to eat the tissue.
"Schultz!" my daughter yelled. "Cut it out!"
He didn't. Soon the tissue was in shreds.
My daughter got up and huffed, "Fine. Have a drippy nose. See if I care!"
What did Schultz do? He got up, walked over to our sofa, and used it as his personal hanky.
"Schultz!" I bellowed. I gave the beast my meanest Mommy look and banished him to his crate.
Ugh! Yet another job for the steam cleaner.
Ick. You need a doggy "scratching post". But for noses.ReplyDelete
Haha. I wonder if Bootsy would let him use his scratching post for such purposes.Delete
Dog snot happens!ReplyDelete
Yes, it does.Delete
Why use a tissue when you can use furniture? :PReplyDelete
Right.More surface area for wiping.Delete
so what you are saying is that you have dog boogers on your sofa???????ReplyDelete
Did. Not any more.Delete
Poor Shultz! What's a dog to do--LOL! :)ReplyDelete
A dogs got to do what a dogs gotta do.Delete
Poor Schultz! He meant well. Didn't you know that a coating of dog mucus (or slobber, drivel or drool) seals in your sofa's freshness so that it lasts longer? You should be thanking him! :)
Happy Thursday, dear friend Sherry!
I had no idea. I should give him a treat for prolonging the life of our sofa. ;-)Delete
Faulkner's nose dripped all the time. I thought it had something to do with his breed. Anyway, I'm used to having dog snot and slobber on everything. Schultz is sorry. He told me to tell you.ReplyDelete
I'll forgive him. But I really don't want it to happen again!Delete
Well he had to get rid of it somehowReplyDelete
He should've used a tissue!Delete
Oh my, I am sorry to hear Schultz has a drippy nose... and you are right... eww... I hope he gets better soon xoxReplyDelete
It's kind of weird to see a dog with a cold.Delete
I'm still reeling from the fact that your large German Shepard is named Schultz! My 16 year old makes us watch Hogan's Hero's every night.ReplyDelete

Hogan's Heroes gave us the idea for the name.Delete
That's so cute! Honestly, I've never seen any of my dogs catching a cold. Didn't know they can get it too. Hahaha! TGIF, babe! xoxoReplyDelete
This is the first dripping nose incident he's had. Usually he just looks a little mopey when he doesn't feel good.Delete
ohh! Steam cleaner now!ReplyDelete
Yes. It came out immediately!Delete
Poor Schultz! He was just trying to make the best of a bad situation. Hope he's better. :)ReplyDelete
He does seem to be better.Delete
Hehehehe, doggy boogers! My dogs will shred any tissue they can find. Thankfully, they haven't wiped their noses on the furniture yet.ReplyDelete
I've heard other German Shepherd owners say that their dogs use sofas as hankies. Probably because they're so big.Delete
Hope he's better.ReplyDelete
I forgot that he was a German Shepherd. I pictured him as a Great Dane.
He's a big boy. Much more muscular than a Great Dane. He does seem to be feeling better.Delete
Dogs will turn anything into a game! Sorry to hear yours is sick and even sorrier about the couch (and other places he is wiping his nose). :)ReplyDelete
Everything has been cleaned up. Never thought I'd be steam cleaning dog snot off my sofa.Delete
LOL. At least he didn't try to eat the sofa, like he did the tissue! XDReplyDelete
He would have been in big trouble for that!Delete
Aaaww I hope the sniffles get better soon. We had a German Shepherd when we were kids. It lived 16 years so was a huge part of our lives. I loved that dog so much and she loved me back. Many fond memories. Great post!ReplyDelete
German Shepherds are very loyal dogs.Delete
Was that you, you said?? No it's SNOT - he said lol. Sorry but I had to.ReplyDelete
I know, it's hard to resist. ;-)Delete
Big bad Shcultz!ReplyDelete
Yes, he is a big, bad Schultz!Delete
My dog leaves drool puddles on the couch from sleeping. I can't imagine snot on top of that. I hope Schultz feels better soon!ReplyDelete
Disgusting! The drippy nose has stopped. Very grateful for that!Delete
