Dog Lovers
A man is holding a very small dog (cat-sized), and he arrives at a women’s house. He knocks on the door, and she opens it.
M: Good evening. We’re very sorry for what happened today…
W: (screams) Get out of here with that terrible animal! Your dog is a beast!
M: Please, don’t panic. I’m holding him. Nothing will happen this time.
W: How dare you come to my place after your dog bit me? Get out of here!
M: Hold on a minute. You need to listen to me…
W: No, I will sue you! It’s easy. My husband’s a lawyer, and he knows that you have to pay me a lot. The beast bit me!
M: Hey, it’s not necessary to sue me. I said that I was ready to settle everything without going to court.
W: You’re ready to settle everything? Ha! OK. Then pay the money now. Did you bring the money?
M: No… but today I went to a Notary Public and they’ve settled everything.
W: What can they settle about this criminal incident? How is it even possible?! I was bitten by your dog! That’s a fact.
M: But it’s not!
W: Uh…..??
M: Well, please, here you are: a Notarized Deed of Gift. (Gives the paperwork). I gave you this dog as a gift! So it’s NOT my dog that you were bitten by.
W: But whose is it then?
M: You were bitten by your own dog. So it’s yours now. (Gives the dog and walks away). And guard your doggie on a leash! Otherwise it’s dangerous for other people walking! (to self) Oh, these dog lovers…
