A Strange Kind of Snow

Schultz seems to be feeling much better. His chemo treatments are done and he is back to his old self creating chaos and mayhem wherever he goes.

Here's the latest story:

When I walked into the mansion (the term I use for my former place of residence), I noticed white stuff all over the ground: Blobs of cotton-like material strewn in the hall, in the family room, and in the kitchen.

I picked one of these blobs up between my fingers and looked at it. "What the heck?"

Then I saw the remains of "Beavie," one of Schultz's favorite toys. The stuffed beaver wasn't so stuffed anymore. His head was sliced open and his cotton stuffing was strewn about. I found the perpetrator looking as innocent as could be.


A short while later, that lovely green bunny you see him pictured with met the same fate. Apparently, the dog has too much time on his paws. Or maybe he misses the snow we had in Ohio and wants to get into the Christmas spirit! 


On another topic, I'd like to let you know that I'm a guest over at Regan Macaulay's blog telling her why my friend, Dennis Higgins' book, Christmas in Pottersville, is my favorite Christmas book. Please visit if you'd like to know why. 

And finally, I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  Enjoy the holidays!

  4. Seems Schulz is reminding you he's no "Schultzy," but a fierce protector to be taken seriously. So Bye-bye Beavie and Bunny and hello to the real deal. He's back!
    Hello to a new year soon, also.

    1. I don't know what to say about that beast, except that I think he saw Bootsy, our cat rip apart a lot of small creatures. He learned from the master.

  8. Oh, sweet Schultz. Faulkner used to tear up toys sometimes, too. His very first toy was a stuffed snowman. He used to sleep with the snowman in his arms or use the snowman as a pillow. Then one day the snowman turned into tufts of snow.

    Love,
    Janie, Franklin, and Penelope

    1. Awww. That sounds so much like Schultz. He used to sleep with Beavie. It was so cute.

  9. Hi, Sherry!

    I visited Regan's site, dear friend. I am always interested in that which interests you.

    It warms my heart to see Schultz looking so well and to know that his prognosis is good. Bless his heart! I don't think you should rush to judgement and assume that he is the culprit that chewed those toys to a pulp. Measure the bite marks and remember:

    "If the teeth don't fit... you must acquit!" :)

    I wish you and your whole family, including your gentle giant, the wonderful, lovable Schultz, a merry Christmas and all the best in 2020, dear friend Sherry!
