A butcher in his shop,
and he's real busy, and he
notices a dog in the shop. He
shoos him away. But later, he
notices the dog is back again.
So he goes over to the dog,
and notices he has a note in
his mouth. He takes the note,
and it reads, "Can I have 12
sausages and a leg of lamb,
please. The dog has money in
his mouth, as well." The
butcher looks inside and, lo
and behold, there is a ten
dollar bill 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 well
impressed, and since it's
close to closing time, he
decides to shut up shop and
follow the dog. So off he
goes. The dog is walking down
the street, when he comes to a
level crossing. The dog puts
down the bag, jumps up and
presses the button. Then he
waits patiently, bag in mouth,
for the lights to turn. They
do, and he walks across the
road, with the 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 at this stage. The
dog checks out the times, and
then sits on one of the seats
provided. Along comes a bus.
The dog walks around to the
front, looks at the number,
and goes back to his seat.
Another bus comes. Again the
dog goes and looks at the
number, notices it's the right
bus, and climbs on. The
butcher, by now open-mouthed,
follows him onto the bus. The
bus travels through the town
and out into the suburbs, the
dog looking at the scenery.
Eventually he gets up, and
moves to the front of the bus.
He stands on 2 back paws and
pushes the button to stop the

Then he gets off, his
groceries still in his mouth.
Well, dog and butcher are
walking along the road, and
then the dog turns into a
house. He walks up the path,
and drops the groceries on the
step. Then he walks back down
the path, takes a big run, and
throws himself -Whap!- against
the door. He goes back down
the path, runs up to the door
and -Whap!- throws himself
against it again. There's no
answer at the house, so the
dog goes back down the path,
jumps up on a narrow wall, and
walks along the perimeter of
the garden.

He gets to the window,
and beats his 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 laying into the dog.
Kicking him, punching him, and
swearing at him. The butcher
runs up, and stops the guy.
"What the hell are you doing?
The dog is a genius. He could
be on TV, for Roc's sake!", to
which the guy responds
"Clever, my eye. This is the
second time this week that
he's forgotten his key."
