Not my dog


A butcher watching over his shop is really surprised when he saw a dog
coming inside the shop. He shoos him away. But later, the dog is back

So, he goes over to the dog and notices he has a note in his mouth. He takes the
note and it reads "Can I have 12 sausages and a leg of lamb, please". The
dog has money in a envelope tied to his collar.

The butchers looks inside and, low and behold, there is a ten-dollar
bill. 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 up shop and follow the dog. So off he goes.


The dog is walking down the street when he comes to a crosswalk.

The dog puts down the bag, jumps up
and presses the button. Then he waits patiently, bag in mouth, for the light
to change. They do, and he walks across the road, with the butcher
following him all the way.

The dog then comes to a bus stop, and looks at the Bus Schedule. The
butcher is in awe at this stage. The dog checks out the times, and then sits on
one of the seats provided. Along comes a bus. The dog walks around to the
front, looks at the number, and goes back to his seat.


Another bus comes. Again the dog goes and looks at the number, and climbs on.

The butcher, by now, open-mouthed, follows him onto the bus. The bus
travels through the town and out into the suburbs, the dog looking at the scenery.


Eventually he gets up, and moves to the front of the bus. He stands on
his back legs and pushes the button to stop the bus. Then he gets off, his
groceries still in his mouth.

Well, dog and butcher are walking along the road, and then the dog turns
In to a house. He walks up the path, and drops the groceries on the step.


Then he walks back down the path, takes a big run, and throws himself against the
door. He goes back down the path, runs up to the door and again, it
throws himself against it. There's no answer at the house, so the dog goes back down the
path, jumps up on a narrow wall, and walks along the perimeter of the
garden. He gets to the window, and beats his head against it several times, walks
back, jumps off, and waits at the door.

he butcher watches as a big guy opens the door, and starts abusing the
dog, kicking and hitting, and swearing at him. The butcher 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 bosses' expectations.
