Meanwhile, Down The Road A Bit...

A man is driving along the back roads around our village and sees a sign in front of a run-down farm labourer's cottage:

Talking Dog
For Sale

He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the back garden.

The man goes round the house into the back garden and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.

"So, you can talk?" the man asks.

"Yep," the Lab replies.

After the man recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he asks, "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 joined MI6. 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 loads of puppies, and now I'm just retired."

The man is amazed. He goes back to the owner and asks what he wants for the dog.

"Ten quid."

"Ten quid? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?"

"Because he's a bloody liar. He never did any of those things."
