The Bird Dog
An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Amazed by his discovery, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him.
He decided to try and break the news to a friend of his, an eternal pessimist who steadfastly refused to be impressed by anything. In the hope that even he would be impressed by a dog that walked on water, he was invited to join the hunter and his dog on a trip into the country. However, the hunter refrained from mentioning the dog's special talent - he wanted his pessimistic friend to see for himself.
The two men and the dog made their way to a good hunting lake and as they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew overhead. The men fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water, but, instead of sinking, it walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than its paws wet. This continued throughout the day. Each time a duck fell, the dog walked across the surface of the water to retrieve it.
The pessimist watched carefully, observing everything, but did not say a single word. Then on the drive home, the hunter finally asked his friend: "Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?"
"Sure did," responded the pessimist. "He can't swim."
