What Does the Dog Say?

A guy decides he wants to learn how to hunt with terriers.

Needing a good hunting dog, he visits a fellow advertising working terriers. The fellow shows him several dogs, but the guy doesn't like them. Then he spots one terrier that the breeder hasn't shown him. The guys asks, "What about that one?" "Oh, no," the farmer replies. "That one's my special dog." "What's so special about him?" "Let me show you."

The terrierman leads the dog out to a field, lifts up one of the dog's ears, and orders, "Go find a fox!" The dog charges to a nearby hedgerow, sticks his head down one hole and barks once. "That means there's one fox in that hole," says the farmer. "No way!" exclaims the guy. The farmer takes a long thin stick and pokes it deep inside the hole and out jumps a big fox.

To further convince the guy, the farmer again lifts the dog's ear and repeats, "Go find the fox!" This time the dog streaks off to another part of a nearby corn field. Sticks his head down a sette, and barks twice. "That means there's two fox in there," says the farmer, taking a long thin stick and poking it even further down this hole. Two big fox bolt from the sette and rush off down the field.

"I've gotta have that dog!" says the man. "Well, okay," replies the terrierman. "But it's gonna cost you a bundle." The guy forks over the money and takes the dog home.

A month later, the terrierman is visiting a friend two counties over, and decides to visit the guy who bought his prize terrier. When he asked the guy about the dog, the man replies, "A couple of buddies and I went hunting, and when we got to a big corn field the damnedest thing happened. I went up to the dog, lifted one of his ears, and said 'Go find the fox.' The dog took off like a bat outta hell and ran into the field, and then he came back barking and running around like crazy. Then he jumped on my leg and started humping it like I was a bitch in heat. After that, he grabbed a stick and started shaking it violently at me! I thought he'd caught rabies, so now he's down in quarantine with the County" 

"You blithering idiot!" yelled the terrierman. "He was telling you there's more fuckin' fox out in that corn field than you can shake a stick at!"

They say that becoming civilized members of a society has done that to us. Our distant ancestors sitting around the fire at the mouth of a cave would have implicitly understood. Over the ages the communication gap with animals has grown wide.

That was the best laugh I have had for a long time :-D . -- TEC
