Dogs in the Wild West
One hot and dry day in the Wild West, this dog walks into a saloon and says, "Gimme a beer".
Evidently this type of thing wasn't too rare 'round those parts because the bartender said, "I'm sorry, but
we don't serve dogs here." The dog then took out a silver dollar, dropped it on the bar, and said, "Look, I
got money, and I want a beer." This scene had the potential to get ugly. The bartender, getting a little
irate, said one more time, "We do not serve dogs here. Please leave." The dog growled, so the bartender
pulled out a gun and shot the dog in the foot! The dog yelped, and ran out the door.
The next day, the swinging bar doors were tossed open and in walks the dog that had been in the
saloon the day before. He was dressed all in black. A black cowboy hat, a black vest, three black cowboy
boots and one black bandage. The dog looks around, waits for the talking to quiet down, and says, "I'm
lookin' fer the man who shot my paw."

the job badly so he took it.
The first day on the job he comes to the bus stop and there is a little girl standing there who is
