THE DOG VIRUS

This virus is no joke. It is progressive and dangerous.

It will begin with one cute puppy.......usually for companionship. You will not realize that you have been infected even when you begin trying to convince your family that foraging for food is more rewarding than buying groceries. You may not recognize the symptoms even when 90% of your snail mail consists of pet catalogs & show entries, and "sick days" have all been used to visit every dog show within 600 miles.

By the time the virus has taken firm hold, you will have reduced your yard to a safe area that can be enjoyed by your dogs. You will be trying to sell the kids swing set to pay for the latest dog toy.

Your computer will threaten to crash because of the huge amounts of dog web sites, Nutrition sites, programs, breed lists, rescue lists, advice lists, dog images, and canine health html bookmarks that have filled all available space.

You will "borrow" from your child's college fund to add more memory. This virus will take over every room of your house in the form of flyers, catalogs, premium lists, dog toys, dog beds, crates, dog food, and dog treats. You will begin to avoid anyone who doesn't have a dog and try to convert anyone who doesn't know your breed.

Your family will not recognize you unless you're covered with dog hair. You will seriously consider a second mortgage to take advantage of dog toy sales or, even worse, dog show entries. Depression will set in immediately after the last dog show of the season. Your own dog will worry about you.

There is no cure. Thankfully, there are groups where you can talk to others that have been infected and who will understand you. With luck they'll also know of a really good sale on dog food & supplements........Author Unknown


Making Puppies

A man and his son were walking down the street one day. They saw two dogs having sex in a yard.

The son asked his father, "Daddy, what are they doing?"

Thinking fast, the father said, "Well, son, they are making puppies."

Every thing was okay for a couple of days. Then, one afternoon, the father was making love to his wife when the son walked in.

The son asked, "Daddy, what are you doing?"

Thinking fast, the father said, "We're making you a baby brother."

The son thought for a moment, then said, "Well, roll her over, daddy, I'd rather have a puppy!"


A Vet & A Doctor

A Veterinarian was feeling ill and went to see her doctor.

The doctor asked her all the usual questions, about symptoms, how long had they been occurring, etc., when she interrupted him: "Hey look, I'm a Vet - *I* don't need to ask my patients these kind of questions: I can tell what's wrong just by looking." She smugly added, "Why can't you?"

The doctor nodded, stood back, looked her up and down, quickly wrote out a prescription, handed it to her and said, "There you are. .....Of course, if ~that~ doesn't work, we'll have to have you put down."


How did you know that?

When I was your age, we didn't have fake doggie-do. We only had real doggie-do, and we liked it that way and no one thought it was one bit funny.

A three-year-old boy went with his dad to see a new litter of German Shepherd puppies. On returning home, he breathlessly informed his mother, "There were two boy German Shepherd puppies and two girl German Shepherd puppies."

"How did you know that?" his mother asked. "Daddy picked them up and looked underneath," he replied. "I think it's printed on their bottoms.


HOW MANY DOGS DOES IT TAKE TO CHANGE A LIGHTBULB?

ROTTWEILER: Just one. You want to make something of it? 
DOBERMAN: Immediately decides to change the brand of lightbulb and find a more 
efficient form of lighting--perhaps a fluorescent bulb. 
SHEPHERD: One, but just "try" to convince them that the burned-out bulb is useless and should be thrown away. 
JACK RUSSELL TERRIER: Two, but the job never gets done--they keep arguing about who is supposed to do it and how it's supposed to be done! 
BULLDOG: Just one. But it takes them three years to do it. 
POMERANIANS don't change light bulbs, although sometimes their agent will get a German Shepherd in to do the job for them while they're out. 
PUG: Er, two. Or maybe one. No-- on second thought, make that two. Is that OK with you? 
GOLDEN RETRIEVER: The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned-out light bulb? 
AFGHAN: Lightbulb? What lightbulb? 
CAT: I don't waste my time with these childish jokes. 
SHIBA-INU: Zero! Shiba's aren't afraid of the dark! 
SCHIPPERKE: It's your lightbulb--change it yourself. Unless.....is there food involved?? 
POODLE: Sorry, Just had my nails done. 
BEAGLE: How many cookies do I get? 
WEIMARANER: Light bulb? You want ME to change a LIGHTBULB??

AMERICAN BULLDOG: One. JUMP,remove bulb , land. JUMP, replace bulb, land. 
Two: What lightbulb? So? We can play in the dark. 
GOLDEN RETRIEVER: "I'll be glad to change the light bulb for you, but first can't we play catch with the tennis ball, or frisbee - and then I want to lick your face and rest my head in your lap and look up at you with my sad eyes. What, you're changing the light bulb yourself - you didn't have to do that - but I looooove you so much for being my friend and doing that." 
DALMATIAN: Just one, but it will really hate the new bulb. 
ROTTWEILER: I'll change the light bulb if I can eat the old one. 
CORGI: I cant reach the stupid lamp! 
SPRINGER: Lightbulb? Lightbulb? That thing I just ate was a lightbulb?

BORDER COLLIE: Just one. And he'll rewire the house while he's at it. 
WOLFDOG: Let me see that light bulb, anyway. What's it made of, what's inside of it, what will happen if I drop it. I might change it, but let me think about it. You're not trying to tell me what to do, are you? Hey, I just had a great idea. I think I'll change that light bulb!
GERMAN SHEPHERD: "I'm kinda busy right now! I have to chase the cat, protect the kids, herd the horses, beg for food and take a nap. I'll add the lightbulb to my "To Do" list...."

"Never moon a werewolf."

"Did you ever notice when you blow in a dog's face he gets mad at you? But when you take him in a car he sticks his head out the window."

On a Front Door: "Everyone on the premises is a vegetarian except the dog." On a fence: "Salesmen welcome. Dog food is expensive."

In a Veterinarian's waiting room: "Be back in 5 minutes. Sit! Stay!"

The Americans and Russians at the height of the arms race realized that if they continued in the usual manner they were going to blow up the whole world. One day they sat down and decided to settle the whole dispute with one dog fight. They'd have five years to breed the best fighting dog in the world and which ever side's dog won would be entitled to dominate the world. The losing side would have to lay down its arms. The Russians found the biggest meanest Doberman and Rottweiler dogs in the world and bred them with the biggest meanest Siberian wolves. They selected only the biggest and strongest puppy from each litter, killed his siblings, and gave him all the milk. They used steroids and trainers and after five years came up with the biggest meanest dog the world had ever seen. Its cage needed steel bars that were five inches thick and nobody could get near it. When the day came for the dog fight, the Americans showed up with a strange animal. It was a nine foot long Dachshund.

Everyone felt sorry for the Americans because they knew there was no way that this dog could possibly last ten seconds with the Russian dog.

When the cages were opened up, the Dachshund came out of it's cage and slowly waddled over towards the Russian dog. The Russian dog snarled and leaped out of it's cage and charged the American dachshund. But, when it got close enough to bite the Dachshund's neck, the Dachshund opened it's mouth and consumed the Russian dog in one bite. There was nothing left at all of the Russian dog.

The Russians came up to the Americans shaking their heads in disbelief. 'We don't understand how this could have happened. We had our best people working for five years with the meanest Doberman and Rottweiler in the world and the biggest meanest Siberian wolves." That's nothing", an American replied."We had our best plastic surgeons working for five years to make an alligator look like a Dachshund."


Things We Can Learn From A Dog...

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride. 
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy. 
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them. 
When it's in your best interest, practice obedience. 
Let others know when they've invaded your territory. 
Take naps and stretch before rising. 
Run, romp and play daily. 
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. 
Be loyal. 
Never pretend to be something you're not. 
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it. 
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently. 
Thrive on attention and let people touch you. 
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do. 
On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree. 
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body. 
No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout...run right back and make friends. 
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

A Puppy

On the last day of kindergarten, all the children brought presents for their teacher.

The florist's son handed the teacher a gift. She shook it, held it up and said, "I bet I know what it is - it's some flowers!"

"That's right!" shouted the little boy. Then the candy store owner's daughter handed the teacher a gift. She held it up, shook it and said. "I bet I know what it is - it's a box of candy!"

"That's right!" shouted the little girl. The next gift was from the liquor store owner's son. The teacher held it up and saw that it was leaking. She touched a drop with her finger and tasted it. "Is it wine?" she asked.

"No," the boy answered. The teacher touched another drop to her tongue. "Is it champagne?" she asked.

"No," the boy answered. Finally, the teacher said, "I give up. What is it?"

The boy replied, "A puppy....P!"

Hymnology

An old man lived with his hound-dog, Mace, in a run-down shack on the outskirts of town.

He had no family and only a few meager possessions; a table and chair, a bed, a bag of hand tools, and his dog. He used the tools to do odd jobs in town, for which he usually would be paid enough to get food for the next day.

Mace and his master lived from one day to the next on what little these jobs would bring in.

The dog was just a normal hound, with one exception: while most dogs like to chew on grass occasionally, Mace loved it. When the old man was in town, Mace would spend the day in the yard in front of the house, chewing away on the lawn.

On bright, sunny day the old man said goodbye to his dog and headed into town to work. He had a plumbing repair job in one of the homes there that would take him most of the day and would probably pay enough for food for the remainder of the week, if he managed the money carefully.

He headed for town with a spring in his step and a whistle on his lips. Inside the house and ready to start, the old man reached in the bag for his wrench.

To his surprise, he didn't feel it. He dug around again, but there didn't seem to be any wrench. He looked in the bag, then dumped its contents on the floor, but still no wrench.

Reality set in. Without a wrench he couldn't finish the job, and without pay he couldn't even buy food for that night's supper, let alone tomorrow.

When he finally came to grips with reality, he told the lady who hired him what the situation was. While she sympathized with his situation, the job needed to be done. If the old man couldn't do it, she would have to hire someone else.

The old man packed up his tools and headed home, head bowed and shoulders stooped.

The whistle was gone and no longer was there a spring in his step. A walk that normally took 15 minutes seemed to last forever.

But finally the old shack came into view, and there was Mace in the distance, munching away as usual on the lawn. When the dog saw his master, he came running, tail wagging, telling the old man how glad he was to see him.

Kneeling beside the hound, the man began to pet him, and through tear-filled eyes told the dog that there would be no supper tonight and no food tomorrow. What's more, without money to buy a new wrench,he had no idea what the future held. It was the loneliest,most helpless feeling he ever had!

Then he caught a glimpse of something shining in the grass. As the old man went overto see what this shining material was, his despair turned in an instant to joy! It was the wrench! The old man had dropped it on his way out that morning, and it would have been lost forever had Mace not been eating farther away from the house than he usually did!

The old man grabbed the dog, gave him a hug that almost suffocated him, and ran into the house. Reaching for a stub of pencil and the only piece of paper he had, he wrote a moving tribute to his canine companion.

Few people have ever heard these words....until now, that is.

One man who did happen toread them changed them a bit and has his named recorded in music history. The old man never did get the credit he deserved. But now you are privileged to read the beginning line of his original poem, which went: "A grazing Mace, how sweet the hound that saved a wrench for me."

Where do German Shepherds and other pets come from?

It is reported that the following edition of the Book of Genesis was discovered in the Dead Seal Scrolls. If authentic, it would shed light on the question, "Where do German Shepherds and other pets come from?"

And Adam said, "Lord, when I was in the garden, you walked with me everyday. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesome here and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me."

And God said, "No problem! I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will know I love you, even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish and childish and unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourself."

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam. And it was a good animal.

And God was pleased.

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and he wagged his tail. And Adam said, "But Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and all the good names are taken and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."

And God said, "No problem! Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him a German Shepherd "DOG."

And the German Shepherd Dog lived with Adam and was a companion to him and loved him. And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And the German Shepherd Dog was content and wagged his tail. After a while, it came to pass that Adam's guardian angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam has become filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock and he believes he is worthy of adoration. The German Shepherd Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but no one has taught him humility." And the Lord said, "No problem! I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever and who will see him as he is. The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not worthy of adoration."

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam. And Cat would not obey Adam.

And when Adam gazed into Cat's eyes, he was reminded that he was not the supreme being.

And Adam learned humility.

And God was pleased.

And Adam was greatly improved.

And Cat did not care one way or the other.


Eat Dogs???

Two Scottish nuns have just arrived in USA by boat and one says to the other, "I hear that the people of this country actually eat dogs." "Odd," her companion replies, "but if we shall live in America, we might as well do as the Americans do."

Nodding emphatically, the mother superior points to a hot dog vendor and they both walk towards the cart. "Two dogs, please," says one.

The vendor is only too pleased to oblige, wraps both hot dogs in foil and hands them over the counter. Excited, the nuns hurry to a bench and begin to unwrap their 'dogs.' The mother superior is first to open hers. She begins to blush and, then, staring at it for a moment, leans to the other nun and whispers cautiously, "What part did you get?"


Walk'n N A Doggie Wonderland (Sing to "Walking in a Winter Wonderland")

Dogs tags ring, are you listening'? 
In the lane, snow is glistening'. 
It's yellow, NOT white 
I've been there tonight, 
Marking up my winter wonderland. 
Smell that tree? That's my fragrance. 
It's a sign for wand'ring vagrants; 
"Avoid where I pee, it's MY property! 
Marked up as my winter wonderland." 
In the meadow dad will build a snowman, 
following the classical design. 
Then I'll lift my leg and let it go Man, 
So all the world will know it's mine mine mine! 
Straight from me to the fencepost, 
flows my naturaly incense boast; 
"Stay off of my TURF, this small piece of earth, 
I mark it as my winter wonderland."

HELP & ASSISTANT

A Blind person walking down Yonge Street in Toronto, commanded his dog to turn right to what he thought was the subway entrance. He had miscalculated, and found himself completely disoriented in a dead-end alley.

A passer-by saw his dilemma, and asked if he could help.

"Yes, thank you" said the blind man, "I was trying to get to the subway."

The man leaned over to the dog, and said slowly and distinctly into the dog's ear, "TAKE - HIM - TO - THE - SUBWAY!"
