Dog Wash Diane J DJ Lost A young boy, about eight years old, was at the corner 'Mom & Pop' grocery
picking out a pretty good size box of laundry detergent. The grocer walked
over, and, trying to be friendly, asked the boy if he had a lot of laundry
to do.

"Oh, no laundry," the boy said, "I'm going to wash my dog." "But you
shouldn't use this to wash your dog. It's very powerful and if you wash
your dog in this, he'll get sick. In fact, it might even kill him."

But the boy was not to be stopped and carried the detergent to the counter
and paid for it, even as the grocer still tried to talk him out of washing
his dog.

About a week later the boy was back in the store to buy some candy. The
grocer asked the boy how his dog was doing. "Oh, he died," the boy said.

The grocer, trying not to be an "I-told-you-so", said he was sorry the dog
died but added, "I tried to tell you not to use that detergent on your dog."

"Well, the boy replied, "I don't think it was the detergent that killed
him." "Oh? What was it then?"

"I think it was the spin cycle!"
