A butcher watching over his shop is really
surprised when he sees a dog coming inside the shop.
He shoos him away. But later, the dog is back again.
So, he goes over to the dog and notices it has a note
in its mouth.
He takes the note and it reads "Can I have 12 sausages
and a leg of lamb, please?
The dog has money in its mouth, as well."
The butcher looks inside and, lo and behold,
there is a ten dollar note there. So he takes the
money and puts the sausages and lamb in a bag, placing
it in the
dog's mouth. The butcher is so impressed, and since
it's about closing time, he decides to shut the shop
and follow the dog.
So off he goes. The dog is walking down the
street, when it comes to a level crossing; the dog
puts down the bag, jumps up and presses the button.
Then it waits patiently, bag in mouth, for the lights
They do, and it walks across the road, with the butcher
following him all the way.
The dog then comes to a bus stop, and starts
looking at the timetable.
The butcher is in awe as the dog
stops a bus by pulling its left leg up and gets in it.
The butcher follows the dog into the bus.
The dog then shows a
ticket which is tied to its belt
to the bus conductor. The
butcher is nearly fainting at this sight,
so are the other
passengers in the bus. The dog then sits near the
driver's seat looking outside.
As soon as the stop is in
sight, the dog stands and wags its tail to inform the
conductor. Then, without waiting for the bus to stop
completely, it jumps out of the bus and runs to a
house very close to the stop.
It opens the big Iron Gate and rushes inside
towards the door. As it approaches the wooden door, the dog
suddenly changes its mind and heads towards the garden.
It goes to the window,
and beats its head against it several
times, walks back, jumps off, and waits at the door.
The butcher watches as a big guy opens the door,
abusing the dog, kicking him and punching him,
at him. The butcher surprised with this, runs up,
and stops the guy.
"What in heaven's name are you doing?
The dog is a genius. He could be on TV, for the life of me!
"To which the guy responds: "You call this clever?
This is the second time this week that this stupid
dog's forgotten his key."
Moral of the story.....
You may continue to exceed onlookers
expectations but shall always fall short of the
It's a dog's life after all.....
