A Not So Shaggy Dog Story
« on: January 27, 2018, 04:16:27 PM »

Talking dog

    A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: 'Talking Dog For Sale.'

    He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.

    The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador Retriever sitting there.

    "You talk?" he asks.

    "Yep" the Lab replies.

    After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says, "So, what's your story?"

    The Lab looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA. In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping, I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running... but the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals. I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired."

    The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.

    "Ten dollars" the guy says.

    "Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on Earth are you selling him so cheap?"

    "Because he's a liar. He's never been out of the yard."

Good one  !!  which reminds me.....
     A guy with a dog goes into a talent scout's office, says "this dog can talk !!"  "No way !" says the agent. "Oh yeah ?  Listen !  Fido ! what grows on a tree's trunk ? " 

"Bark ! Bark !" says the dog.     "Out !" shouts the agent.    "Well, how bout this !  Fido ! What  does sandpaper feel like ?"

 "Rough !  Rough !"     "I said  OUT !!"    "Wait !  One more.  Fido, who was the greatest Yankee ball player ever ?"

 "RUTH  !!  RUTH !!"      Down the steps go the man and dog propelled by the agent's angry  foot.  The man and dog sit on the sidewalk in a daze, then turn their heads and look at each other. The dog says "Well, who, then ?  DiMaggio ?"

Well I lost the link to this sight and went back through my emails to find where you sent it to me.  I made that quick little post to get your attention and it worked.  Hope to post more often now.

Sorry for the hi-jack of your post. ;)

I'd say it was good use, not a hijack.
