PESSIMIST AND A DOG
« on: June 13, 2013, 10:37:16 PM »

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, the eternal pessimist who refused to be impressed with anything. This, surely, would impress him. He 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. This continued all day long; each time a duck fell, the dog walked across the surface of the water to retrieve it.

The pessimist watched carefully, 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 the pessimist. "He can't swim."

Another one is learning to rest in God and truly trust Him.

I'm still a work in progress.

Ha ha. That's OK, as long as he can walk on water that's the main thing

Haha,

This joke reminded me of something I heard someone say recently. Was it on this forum?.....

The pessimest looks at the glass half empty.  The optimest looks at the glass half full. The realist looks at the glass and says "It's always full of something, even if it looks completely empty"

this joke reminded me of a true story rhys.  many years ago my brother-in-law took his german shorthair pointer bird hunting with him.  after spending many hours in the heat waiting for the quail to come around, the dog took off by himself.  a short while later the dog returned with a chicken in his mouth.  i guess the dog got hot and tired of waiting so he found his own bird.

thanks for the laugh.
