A woman brought a litter of
golden-retriever puppies to the veterinary clinic for inoculations and
She loved the puppies so much that she couldn't keep from remarking about
their cute habits.
As the look-alike pups
squirmed over and under one another in their box, the vet realized it would be
difficult to tell the treated ones from the rest. He turned on the water
faucet, wet his fingers, and moistened each dog's head when he had finished.
After the fourth puppy, he noticed his talkative client had grown silent.
As he sprinkled the last
pup's head, the woman leaned forward and whispered, "I never realized they had
to be baptized."
Why Your Vet Bill Is So High
A man brought a very limp dog into the veterinary
clinic. As he lay the dog on the table, the doctor pulled out his
stethoscope placing the receptor on the dog's chest. After a moment or
two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, "I'm sorry, but your dog has
"What?" screamed the man. "How can you tell? You
haven't done any testing on him or anything. I want another opinion!"
With that, the vet turned and left the room. In a few
moments, he returned with a Labrador Retriever. The Retriever went right
to work, sniffing the poor dog on the table and checking him out
thoroughly. After a considerable amount of sniffing, the Retriever sadly
shook his head and said "WOOF"
The veterinarian then took the Labrador out and
returned in a few moments with a cat, who walked around the poor dog
several times and then sadly shook his head and said, "MEOW," then
jumped off the table and ran out of the room.
The veterinarian said, "There's nothing more I can
do" and handed the man a bill for $600.
The dog's owner went postal. "$600! Just to tell me
my dog is dead? This is outrageous!"
The vet shook his head sadly and explained, "If you had taken my word
for it, it would have been $50, but with the Lab work and the cat
SINGLE BLACK FEMALE... Seeks male companionship, ethnicity unimportant.
I'm a svelte good looking girl who LOVES to play. I love long walks in the
woods, riding in your pickup truck, hunting, camping, and fishing trips, cozy
winter nights lying by the fire. Candlelight dinners will have me eating out
of your hand. Rub me the right way and watch me respond. I'll be at the front
door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me. Kiss me
and I'm yours. Call xxx-xxxx and ask for Daisy."
Callers found themselves talking to the local Humane Society about an
eight-week-old black Labrador!
Top Ten Ways to Know You
Probably Have Enough Dogs
1. Your furnace repairman asks when
the last time your air filter was vaccinated for rabies.

mistaken for Lhaso Apsos.
3. The Lawn Green salesmen skip your house when promoting their service in
4. Your closet reveals a year around wardrobe rich in tweeds and herringbones.

5. A fence to fence cement patio is being considered as a viable alternative
to grass seed in the back yard.

Petsmart, Chow Hound or Pet Supplies Plus stores, but the carry out kids
disappear when they see you coming.

children, number two behind the pediatrician if you do, and your mother-in-law
was bumped in favor of the pet sitter months ago.
8. Your snow shovel and bamboo rake are both in year around use as a pooper
9. You've contemplated the contents of the lint filter on your dryer and
wondered why you waste your time grooming dogs.
10.Viewing these contents, you just know there's a market for Colliester
sweaters, Chowchilla coats and OES yarns and wonder why Martha Stewart doesn't
have a show on Animal Planet yet.
