This story is about the sharp-wit of two friends who use their quick thinking to get their dogs admitted into a restaurant.
Two friends happen to be walking their dogs one day. One of them has a Dalmatian while the other has a Chihuahua.
Suddenly, they smell something delicious coming from a nearby restaurant that they happened to just pass by. One of the friends is so intrigued by the smell that he starts to feel hungry.
The man with the Dalmatian turns to the other friend and says, “Let’s get something to eat in there. It smells really good.”
His friend with the Chihuahua thinks about it for a while and then replies, “Yes, it does smell good. But we can’t go in there. We have our dogs with us.”
The first guy thinks about that for a moment before telling him, “Just follow my lead.” He then puts on a pair of sunglasses and walks into the restaurant.
As expected, he is stopped by the owner who is standing watchfully in the doorway. “Sorry, no pets allowed,” he tells the first friend.
To this, the man coolly replies, “But this is my seeing-eye dog.”
The owner looks at his dog in a surprised manner. “A Dalmatian?”
“Yes,” the man replied, not looking at him directly in the eye. “They are using them now.”
For the lack of better knowledge, the owner allowed him to pass.” Well, then. Come on in,” the owner says.
The man with Chihuahua is now beaming with confidence. He follows his friend and puts on the sunglasses before walking through the doorway.
Again the owner stops him and reminds him that the pets are not allowed inside. The man then mimics his other friend’s answer and says, “But this is my seeing-eye dog!”
The confused owner asks, “A Chihuahua?”
“A Chihuahua?” the man seems shocked. “They gave me a Chihuahua?”
