a most unusual funeral
A man was leaving a convenience store with his
morning coffee when he noticed a most unusual funeral
procession approaching the nearby cemetery.
A long black hearse was followed by a second long
black hearse about 50 feet behind the first one.
Behind the second hearse was a solitary man walking a
dog on a leash.
Behind him, a short distance back, were about
200 men walking single file.
The man couldn't stand the curiosity .. He
respectfully approached the man walking the dog and
said, 'I am so sorry for your loss, and I know now is
a bad time to disturb you, but I've e never seen a
funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?'
What happened to her?'
The man replied, 'My dog attacked and killed her.'
He inquired further, 'But, who is in the second hearse?'
The man answered, 'My mother-in-law. She was
trying to help my wife when the dog turned on her.'
A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence
passed between the two men.
'Can I borrow the dog?'
'Get in line.'
