Hello Everybody. Autumn the Puppy here.
In all honesty, I've been scratching my head (and a few fleas) trying to figure out what I could post for this week's Sunday Funnies.
In the end, I decided to dig up this old chestnut.
It might not be as famous as say, Bud Abbot and Lou Costello's classic "Who's on First?" routine, but it does have some infamy in its own right.

A man takes his dog into a talent scout's office and proudly announces "I have here the world's first and only talking dog."
The talent agent has this skeptical look on his face and says "Prove it."
The owner looks at his dog and says, "Rover, what's on top of a house?"
The dog replies, "Woof."
The owner asks Rover, "See? He said roof. Rover does talk."
The talent agent is in doubt and says, "It sounded like regular dog talk to me. Try another."
The owner turns to the dog and asks, "What does sandpaper feel like?"
Rover answers, "Ruff."
Then the man asks, "Who's the greatest baseball player of all time?"
Rover just sits on his hind legs and stares at his owner.
The man repeats the question. "Rover, who's the greatest baseball player of all time?"
The man and the talent agent both look intently at Rover, who looks deep in thought. Then the dog looks at both of them and says, "What position?"

Always leave your audience guessing. That's what I say to anyone who might have heard the classic version of this routine before and wonder why mine is different.
Anyway, for those who asked, I am a pure blood golden retriever.
Don't believe me?
Bring me some gold and I'll retrieve it for you!

In any event, it's time for me to make like a tree and leave.
But remember, whenever you encounter a dogwood tree, it's bark is worse than its bite.

Take care. Have a great week, and we'll be back here next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!-AtP.
