Fur Babies: Schultz’s Wild Food Rampage

Fur Babies: Schultz’s Wild Food Rampage

Hi folks, Indy here!


Here’s a photo of Schultz-y—my new friend and fur baby.

Schultz's Dinner


He is kind of huge to be called a baby, and for someone who went on a wild food rampage, his innocent chocolate-brown eyes sure don’t give him away.

His mommy, Sherry Ellis, sent me this cool story.

Schultz’s Dinner

Written by Sherry Ellis

Schultz, our enormous German Shepherd, has been on a rampage lately. I don’t know what his malfunction is, but he’s having some serious issues with staying out of trouble.

A couple of days ago, he went to the pet store and knocked over a whole shelf of goldfish food with his big, bushy tail.

Yesterday, I caught him digging up one of the plants in my garden. And did I mention how filthy he’s been getting? Maybe he thinks he can do whatever he wants now that Santa’s already been here with a delivery of treats for his stocking.

Anyway, today’s episode involved food—human food. I was attempting to make spaghetti. As I pulled the noodles out of the box, a bunch fell onto the floor. Guess who was there to clean up?  Yep, Schultz. Apparently, he likes munching on uncooked spaghetti noodles.

“Schultz, yuck!” I said.

He cocked his head and kept crunching. He ate about a third of a box of those things.

Later, my son put his vanilla milkshake on the kitchen chair. I don’t know why he did this, but I didn’t catch it. Schultz did. When I walked into the room, there was Schultz, with his big schnoz in the cup, licking up the milkshake.

“Schultz!” I hollered. “What do you think you’re doing?”

He pulled his snout out of the cup and looked at me. His black face was covered with splotches of vanilla ice cream. He put his nose back in and licked some more.

“Oh, no you don’t,” I said. “Crate!”

I confiscated the milkshake and locked him up in jail. That’s where he’s going to stay for a very long time!

The End 🙂

And I thought I got into mischief. Hee hee! Way to go, Schultz-y. 🙂

Please support Schultz’s good behavior by popping over to my Fur Babies page. I’ve got more dirt on him, not to mention a very handsome photo on display.

  2. Perhaps Schultz is “going for broke.” Maybe he’s decided it’s worth a try, even if there are consequences. Thanks for sharing his story. By the way, is he named after the guard on Hogan’s Heroes?

    • Schultz acts like a child, doesn’t he? I hope Sherry chimes in to let us know if Schultz was named after the guard on Hogan’s Hereos. I loved that show. Thanks for bringing that memory to the surface, Linda! 🙂

      • Linda, thanks so much for asking that question. I hadn’t even thought that Schultz might be named after Srgt. Schultz. :-)Thanks, Sherry for enlightening Linda and I.

  3. Yes our fur babies can be rather creative,however, perhaps not all as well spoken as Indy. Happy Birthday to Kathryn too!!!

  4. To all my faithful readers, I hope you’ll take time to check out my Fur Babies! page. Remember, I worked hard to add more juicy dirt on Schultz-y, and you should see the Valentine photo he sent me. Thanks, folks! – Indy
