An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Its a Dog's Life!

Just got this story in an email… its funny!


A butcher watching over his shop is really surprised when he sees a
dogcoming 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
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. They do, and it walks
across the road, with he butcher following him all the way. The dog
then comes to a bus stop, and starts looking at the timetable. The
butcher is in awe as the dog stops a bus by pulling its left leg up

The butcher follows the dog into the bus. Then the dog shows a ticket

stop completely, it jumps out of the bus and runs to a house very close
to the stop. It opens the big Iron Gate and rushes inside towards the

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 surprised with this, runs up, and stops 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!” to which the guy responds: “You call this clever?
This is the second time this week that this stupid dog’s forgotten his

Moral of the story:
You may continue to exceed onlooker’s expectations but shall always
