* It was evening and the hunters were sitting around the fire bragging about their dogs while the local guide just listened. One man bragged, “Take my setter when I send him to the store for eggs he will not bring them home unless that are fresh..” The next man topped that with. “My Springer goes out for cigars and gets my brand and he will not take one until I offer it to him.” “Say, old timer, have you ever heard of dogs as smart as ours?” “Just one, my brother’s dog,” came the reply. “Oh!, How is he smarter,” they asked. “Well, his dog runs the store where your two dogs trade.”
# A fellow I know was going to hang gliding school. I asked him how many successful flights did he have to take, jumping off the cliff in order to graduate. He answered, “All of them.”
* A workshop on dog temperament, then instructor told us of a test for canines disposition. The owner was to fall down and act hurt. A dog with a bad temperament would try to bite the person, whereas a dog with a good temperament would like his owner’s face and show concern. Once while eating pizza in the living room, I decided to try this out on my two dogs. I stood up, clutched my heart let out a scream and collapsed on the floor. The dogs looked at me, glanced at each other and raced to the coffee table for my pizza.
