Talking dog for sale

A guy is driving around the Blue Mountains and he sees a sign in front of a broken-down, shanty-style house: ‘Talking Dog For Sale’. He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.

The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking labrador sitting there.

“You talk?” he asks.

“Yep,” the lab replies.

After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says, “So, what’s your story?”

The lab looks up and says, “Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the Government, so … I told ASIO.

“In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.

“I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running.

“But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn’t getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in.

“I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.

“I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I’m just retired.”

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner how much he wants for the dog.

“Ten bucks”,” the guy says.

“Ten bucks?! This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?”

“Because he’s full of crap. He’s never been out of the yard.”
