(Dog)spired, Shelley F.
A butcher was watching over his shop when he was surprised by a dog walking inside. He shooed him away, but the dog came back.
The butcher went over to the dog and noticed he had a note in his mouth. He took out the slobbery note. It read: “Can I please have 12 sausages and a leg of lamb?”
The dog also had money in his mouth. The butcher looked inside, and lo and behold, there was a ten dollar bill. He took out the money, put the sausages and lamb in a bag, and placed it in the dog’s mouth. The butcher was impressed. And, because it was almost closing time, he decided to lock up the shop and follow the dog. So, off they both went.
As the dog walked down the street, he came to a light signal. He put down his bag, jumped up, and pressed the button. Then he waited patiently, bag in his mouth, for the light to turn green. When it did, he walked across the road, with the butcher following him.
The dog came to a bus stop, and he looked at the timetable. At this point, the butcher was in awe.
The dog continued to check out the bus times, and then he sat down on one of the nearby benches. Along came a bus. The dog walked around to the front of the bus, looked at the number, and then went back to the bench and wait.
Another bus came by. Again, the dog got up to look at the number. When he noticed it was the right one, he climbed in. The butcher was now open-mouthed, and he followed the dog onto the bus.
The bus traveled through the town and out into the suburbs. The dog looked at the scenery as it passed by. Eventually, he got up, and moved to the front of the bus. He stood on his back two legs, and pushed the button for the bus to stop. Then he got off, the groceries still in his mouth.
The dog walked down the road, with the butcher still following him. At last, the dog turned toward a house. He walked up the path, and dropped the groceries on the front step.
The dog turned, walked back down the path, turned again, and then started to run. He threw himself against the door. Then he went back down the path again, turned, and with a running start, threw himself against the door.
When there was no answer at the house, the dog went back down the path, jumped up on a narrow wall, and walked along the perimeter of the garden. He got to a window, beat his head against it several times, jumped off, and waited at the door.
Finally, the butcher watched as a big guy opened the door and started yelling at the dog, calling him worthless. But just as the big guy raised his hand in anger, the butcher ran up and stopped him.
“What in heaven’s name are you doing? The dog is a genius. He could be on TV!”
The guy responded, “You call this clever? It’s the second time this week that this stupid dog has forgotten his key!”
