Dog walking..

A little goes up to her mother and asks, "Mom, may I take the dog for a walk?"

To finish.. Happy birthday to my brother in law Pete Mordaunt.. Have a good one Pete.

Her mother says, "No, honey, the dog is in heat."

The little girl asks, "What does that mean?"

The mother tells her to go ask her father.

So then the little girl goes up to her dad and says, "Mom says I can't take the dog for a walk because she's in heat."

The dad wipes the dog's backside with a rag that has gasoline on it and says, "Just take her around the block."

The little girl leaves with the dog, but comes back empty handed.

Her father asks, "What happened to the dog?!"

"She ran out of gas so another dog is pushing her the rest of the way home."
