A man had a handsome, highly intelligent Labrador
dog named Henry. Every morning, the man put
a £5 note in Henry's mouth and said,
'Go and get my paper, Henry.' The dog then
went out of the flat, down the stairs, out
into the street and around the corner to the
newsstand. A few minutes later, he returned
with the newspaper in his mouth and sat down
next to the man like a faithful companion.
day, Henry was ready as usual to go on his
mission. The man searched in his pocket,
but couldn't find a £5 note. So he
gave him a £20 note instead, saying,
'Be careful, Henry, and come straight back.'

flat, and went out into the street. Watching
him go from the window the man said to himself,
'What a wonderful friend he is to me.'
ten minutes, Henry still hadn't returned,

streets are busy today,' he said to himself.

at the end of the street.'

and went in. 'Did a Labrador come by here
today?' he asked. 'Yes,' replied the storekeeper.

quite a bit of money, and left. He went
that way,' he said, pointing right.
