THE SAILOR'S HUNTING DOG
In the Blue Ridge Mountains, there was a retired sailor who was reputed to have the best hunting dog ever, by the name of "Chief"
Three Admirals went-up into the mountains and wanted to rent him. The old sailor said good hunting dog,...gonna cost ya $50.00 a day." They agreed and three days later came back with the limit.
The next year they came back. "Chief" got better, gonna cost you $75.00 a day," again they agreed, and 2 days later they came back with the limit.
The third year they came back and told the old sailor they had to have "Chief" even if it cost $100.00 a day. The old sailor replied, "You can have the worthless mutt for $5.00 a day, and I'm overcharging you $4.00!!"
The bewildered Admirals asked, "But we don't understand, what happened to him?"
"Well, a crew from the Navy base in Norfolk came up and rented him. One of the idiots called him Master Chief , and he's just been sitting on his ass barkin' ever since..."
