Le Sommelier

Albert  has invited a co-worker to his home intending to impress her by preparing a gourmet meal. When his guest arrives he glances over at his german shepherd Marcel. “Go down to the cellar and bring me back a bottle of red.” he tells the dog.

The woman looks amazed a few minutes later when the dog returns with a bottle of wine in his mouth which he lays at his master’s feet. “What an incredibly smart dog!” she says completely awestruck.

“He’s not as smart as you think” replies her host “darn dog can’t tell the difference between a shiraz and a merlot.”

    Dear Pat

    I wonder if the dog can tell the difference between Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio. No matter, I’ll take either. Funny.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    Dear Patricia,

    Why do I feel like you’re channeling Henny Youngman? Good story.

    Aloha,

      It does sound like more of a joke than a story.. darn muse..I am too young to know who Henny Youngman was ( I may be lying. 🙂 )

    I don’t think it is the dog’s fault, after all he asked for a bottle of red.
