A Duck story

Post  Nick on Thu Jul 01, 2010 4:55 pm


A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she
Laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened
to the bird's chest.

After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, "I'm
sorry, but your duck, Cuddles, has passed away."

The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?"

"Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the vet..

"How can you be so sure?" she protested. "I mean you haven't done any
testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something."

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned
a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's
owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his
front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to
bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.

The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room. A few
minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and
also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on
its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the
room.

The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this
is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."

The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a
bill, which he handed to the woman.

The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "150!" she cried,
"150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"

The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the
bill would have been 20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's
now 150."

Nick, I work in the veterinary profession (well, associated with it as General Dogsbody, anyway), and I can assure you that a chestnut is quite different from a duck. Honest, love!!! xxx
