The Story of the Genius Dog

A butcher watching over his shop is really surprised when he sees a dog coming inside the shop. He shoos him away. But later, the dog is back again. So, he goes over to the dog and notices it has a note in its mouth.

He takes the note and it reads "Can I have 12 sausages and a leg of lamb, please? The dog has money in its mouth, as well."

The butcher looks inside and, lo and behold, there is a ten dollar note there. 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 the shop and follow the dog.

So off he goes. The dog is walking down the street, when it comes to a level crossing the dog puts down the bag, jumps up and presses the button. Then it waits patiently, bag in mouth, for the lights to turn green. When the light turns green, the dog walk across the road, with the butcher following him behind.

The dog then comes to a bus stop. The butcher is in awe as the dog stops a bus by pulling its left leg up and gets in it. The butcher follows the dog into the bus. The dog then shows a ticket which is tied to its belt to the bus conductor. The butcher nearly fainted at this sight. The dog then sits near the driver looking outside. As soon as the stop is in sight, the dog stands and wags its tail to inform the conductor. Then, without waiting for the bus to stop completely, it jumps out of the bus and runs to a house nearby.

The dog opens the big iron gate and rushes inside towards the door. As it approaches the wooden door, the dog suddenly changes its mind and heads towards the garden. It goes to the window, and beats its head against it several times, walks back, jumps off, and waits at the door. The butcher watches as a big guy opens the door, and starts abusing the dog, kicking him and punching him, and swearing at him. The butcher became angry and walks up to 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!

The guy responded: "You call this clever? This is the second time this week that this stupid dog has forgotten to bring along the house key."


Moral of the story:

You may continue to exceed onlookers expectations but shall always fall short of the boss' expectations.

It's a dog's life after all.....

GOOD Story! This reminds me of SHAHRIR SAMAD, the dumb and daft Minister in Charge of Goods Prices & Petrol etc.

Sadly, SHAHRIR SAMAD is not a Dog!

Sad story but true in real life.

We should learn to appreciate the people around us before the 'DOG' pissed off and leave us...........

The dog should have bought a pistol at the gun shop and then shoot down big guy.

i don't see problem with the owner - the dog's behaviour is norm to the owner, and being perfectionist, the owner wanted the dog to be perfect and not absent-minded. he's capable to train another dog like this if this dog leave him, so it's no big deal after all....

it might be "best" for you, but not the "best" in the eyes of the owner. just like you think malaysian can make proton is good, but not in the eyes of germans and japanese.....
