This one is actually a forwarded mail from a friend. My friend had used Steganography to put this message in a image and had send it to me. So I had to type the entire thing.(Hard work!!!!). When I was at it, I edited it a bit to make sure we were dealing with a normal dog and not a dog having crocodile like mouth. The story begins.
A shopkeeper watching over his shop is really surprised when he sees a dog coming inside the shop. He shoos it away but later, the dog is back inside again.
So he goes over to the dog and notices that it has a note in its mouth, He takes the note which reads: “Can I have 12 bars of soaps and a bottle of shampoo, please? The money is with the dog,”
The Shopkeeper looks at the dog closely and to his surprise there is two Rs. 100 note in it’s neck belt. So the shop keeper takes the money and puts the soap, shampoo and change in a bag, and then places it in the dog’s mouth.
The shopkeeper is very impressed, and since it is closing time, he decides to follow the dog.
The dog walks down the street and, when it comes to the zebra crossing, it waits for the signal to turn green. It then walks across the road to the bus stop. While it is waiting at the stop it looks up the timetable for the bus. The shopkeeper is flabbergasted as the dog gets into the bus and sits on a vacant seat.
The shopkeeper continues to follow the dog. The dog waits for the conductor to come to it’s seat and gives change to the conductor and shows him the neck belt to keep the ticket. The shopkeeper and all the other people on the bus are astonished. The conductor almost faints but recovers well in-time to give the ticket.
The dog then moves to the back door(since the dog was male) and waits for the bus stop to arrive. As soon as the stop is in sight, the dog without even wait for the bus to stop jumps off and runs to the house nearby.
It opens a big iron gate and rushes towards the door. As it approaches the door, it changes it’s mind and walks towards the garden. The dogs walks up to the window and beats it’s head several times on the window. It then walks back to the door and waits. The fascinated shopkeeper walks up to the door and watches a big guy open the door.
The guy starts beating, kicking and abusing the dog. The shopkeeper runs to stop the guy and says, “What in heaven are you doing? That dog is a genius and could be famous worldwide”.
The guy responds, “You call this clever? This is the third time this week that the dog has forgotten the door keys.”
