Impressive Hunting Dog

An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him.

He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, a pessimist by nature, and invited him to hunt with him and his new dog.

As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by. They fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water.

The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than his paws wet. The friend saw everything but did not say a single word.

On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog? “I sure did, responded his friend. “He can’t swim.”

《神奇的獵狗》

有個熱愛打獵野鴨的男人想在市場買一條新的獵狗,結果找到一隻可以在水面上行走去撿拾野鴨的獵狗。他感到非常震驚,深信他的朋友絕對不會相信他買到什麼。

這個男子決定邀請他的一位朋友跟他及新獵狗一起去狩獵,藉機把這件事告訴他,不過這位朋友天生就很悲觀。

他們在岸邊等待時看到一群野鴨飛過,便舉槍射擊,擊落一隻鴨子。獵狗ㄧ看,隨即跳入水中。

結果這條狗並未沉入水中,反倒在水上行走,過了水面後把野鴨銜了回來,它只有腳掌被水沾溼而已。那位朋友看在眼裡,卻一語不發。

這個男子在回程途中詢問朋友:「你不覺得我那條新獵狗有點不尋常嗎?」

他的朋友答道:「我當然知道,它根本不會游泳。」
