A woman was leaving a convenience store with her morning coffee when she
noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery.
A long, black hearse was followed by a second long, black hearse about 50
feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was a solitary woman
walking a pit bull on a leash. Behind her, a short distance back, were
about 200 women walking single-file.
The woman couldn't restrain her curiosity. She respectfully approached the
woman walking the dog and said, "I am so sorry for your loss. I know now is
a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a funeral like this.
Whose funeral is it?"
"What happened to him?"
The woman replied, "My dog attacked and killed him."
She inquired further, "Well, who is in the second hearse?"
The woman answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my husband
when the dog turned on her." A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passed between the two women.
"Can I borrow the dog?"
"Get in line."
