A Man's Best Friend ..

I was sent this by email from a friend I thought it was a good tale,:)

A  man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery,  when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead. He remembered  dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years.
He wondered where the road was leading them.

After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall. It looked like  fine marble..it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight. When he was standing before it, he saw a  magnificent gate and the  street that led to the gate looked like pure gold.

He and the dog walked toward the gate and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk. 



When he was close  enough, he called out, 'Excuse me, where are we?'
'This is Heaven,  sir,' the man answered.
'Wow! Would you happen to have some water?'  the man asked.
'Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up.'

The man gestured, and the gate began to  open.'Can my friend,' gesturing toward his dog, 'come in, too?' the traveller asked.

'I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept  pets.'

The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the  road and continued the way he had been going with his dog.

After  another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt  road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed.  As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning  against a tree and reading a book.




'Excuse me!' he called  to the man. 'Do you have any water?'
'Yeah, sure, there's a pump over  there, come on in.'
'How about my friend here?' the traveller gestured  to the dog.
'There should be a bowl by the pump,'  said the man.

They went  through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with  a bowl beside it. The traveller filled the water bowl and took a long drink  himself, then he gave some to the dog. When they were full, he and the dog  walked back toward the man.

'What do you  call this place?' the traveller asked.
'This is Heaven,' he  answered.
'Well, that's confusing,' the traveller said.
'The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.'
'Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates?  Nope. That's hell.'
'Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?'
'No we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind.

A trip to the vet, 'what a pain in the ass'...

I have been having problems today with going to the toilet , nothing was coming out !. So Nikki checked the back end this afternoon and saw something sticking out that she reckoned wasn't suppose too be there. So off to Animal Sur we went. 

Nikki explained to the Vet that I had problems doing my number two's. The vet then looked into my mouth and eyes . Nikki then said " no, no it's the back end of the dog that is the problem" . I think the Vet was trying to put off the inevitable off looking at my rear end, and really I can't blame him.

Anyhow , indeed their was something stuck, quite a few things actually , bit of twig, string,wool etc. The vet managed to clear the blockage, what a nice man..!

So the moral of the story doggies, don't eat stuff you are not suppose too otherwise it will involve a rather embarrassing and uncomfortable visit to the vet .
