A Talking Dog
FOR SALE

I am driving down the street when I see a sign in front of a house, it reads "Talking Dog For Sale."

My curiosity aroused I stop to inquire.

I ring the doorbell and the owner tells me the dog is in the backyard.

I go into the backyard and see a black dog just sitting there.

"You talk?" I ask.

"Yep," the mutt replies.

"So, what's your story?"

The dog looks up and says,

"Well, I discovered this gift while I was just a pup, and wanted to help the government. So I told the CIA about my gift, and in no time they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping. I was one of their most valuable spies eight years running.

The jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger and I wanted to settle down. So I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security work, mostly wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings there and was awarded a batch of medals. Had a wife, a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired."

I'm absolutely amazed.

I go back in and ask the owner what he wants for the dog.

The owner says, "Ten dollars."

I say, "This dog is amazing. Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?"

The owner replies, "He's such a liar. He didn't really do any of that stuff."
