Dog Humor

It is vow renewal day and I'm attempting to put together a dinner that will be ready for serving after I leave the chapel after I've renewed vows.  There will be time for reflection later, I'm sure.  But in the meantime, here is something for the lowest common denominator.  Dog humor, courtesy of RZ:





        A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. Asshe laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope andlistened to the bird's chest.         After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said,"I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away."  The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?"  "Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the vet..  "How can you be so sure?" she protested. "I mean you haven'tdone any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma orsomething."         The vet turned around and left the room. He returned a fewminutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's ownerlooked on in amazement,         the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on theexamination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He thenlooked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.         The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room.A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the tableand also delicately sniffed the duck from head to foot. The cat sat backon its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of theroom.         The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as Isaid, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."         The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys andproduced a bill,         which he handed to the woman..         The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$1500!"         she cried, "$1500 just to tell me my duck is dead!"         The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word forit, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the CatScan, it's now $1500."
