**A couple are out for a walk when they notice a large sign outside a house which reads, “Talking dog for sale.”  They are both intrigued by the idea of a talking dog, so they knock on the door and ask if they can take a look at this dog.  “Sure! Says the owner, “Come on in.”  The owner escorts them into the lounge where the dog is lying on the sofa watching television.  “Hello,” they say to the dog.  “Hello,” the dog responds.  “What have you done with your life so far then?” the couple ask the dog.  “Well, actually I’ve led a very full life,” says the dog. “Really?” says the couple.  “Yes, really,” says the dog. “I’ve lived in the Alps rescuing avalanche victims.  Then I served my country in Iraq  and now I work part-time reading to the residents in a retirement home.  The couple are amazed by this.  They can’t believe any dog could have done quite so much.  One of them then asks the dog’s owner, “Why on earth would you want to get rid of this amazing dog?”  “Oh, we’re getting rid of him because he’s a liar.  He’s not done any of those things,” says the owner.
