A Dead Duck’s Diagnosis
A woman brought a very limp duck into a Veterinary surgeon.
As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope
and listened to the bird's chest. After a moment or two, the vet
shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles,
has passed away."
The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?" "Yes, I am sure.
Your duck is dead," replied the vet.. "How can you be so sure?"
she protested. "I mean you haven't done any testing on Him or
anything. He might just be in a coma or something."
The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned
a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's' owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front

to the woman.
The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!" she cried, "$150
just to tell me my duck is dead!"
The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill
would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's now $150." Personal safety in a small package Where you are much more than a customer and we are much more than a web store
