After all of the excitement and activity recently over band plans and
such, a little comic relief seems in order. This was sent to me by
The Talking Dog!
During a recent trip my wife and I were on we drove around the back woods of
East Texas . On one back road I saw a sign in front of a broken down shanty
style house: "Talking Dog for Sale ." Well I needed a break so I stopped to
see what the deal was. I went into the backyard and see a nice looking
Labrador retriever sitting there.
"You talk?" I ask.
"Yep," the Lab replies.
Well after I got over the shock of hearing a dog talk, I asked "So, what's

hang around the communications centers and with my keen hearing I could copy
the transmissions. Because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping, I
was one of their most valuable spies for eight years." Copying high speed CW
all day really tired me out and I knew I wasn't getting any younger.
So, I decided to settle down. I retired from the CIA (8 dog years is 56 CIA
years) and joined a ham radio club. In fact I won first place in the
Oklahoma QSO Party two years in a row. Then I sired a mess of puppies and
got away from Ham Radio for a while. I sure miss my radio. Why don't you buy
me and I'll be your CW operator in the Texas QSO Party?
I said "let me see what I can do." I went back in and ask the owner what he
wants for the dog.
"Ten dollars," the guy says.
"Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so
"Because he's a liar. He never did any of that stuff. He's just a No-Code
