Duck Hunter

Duck Hunter (Photo credit: m3cfa)

An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog.  His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck.  Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him. 

He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, the eternal pessimist who refused to be impressed with anything.  This, surely, would impress him.  He invited him to hunt with him and his new dog. 

As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by.  They fired, and a duck fell.  The dog jumped into the water. He did not sink but instead, walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than his paws wet. This continued all day long: each time a duck fell, the dog walked across the surface of the water to retrieve it. 

The pessimist watched carefully, saw everything, but did not say a single word.  

On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, “Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?” 

“I sure did,” responded the pessimist. “He can’t swim.”

    Typical attitude that my mom has about everything in life, always looking for the negatives. It takes and effort to be with a person like that.

    This is serious funny *smile – wouldn’t mind going to the same training as that dog .. could do with some walking on water at times.

    By the way .. love the choice of picture.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
