A very large dog was taken to the Vet by its owner, concerned that the dog was unwell. The dog was not its usual bouncy, energetic self and the owner was very concerned.
The vet carefully examines the dog, its eyes, ears and teeth. He then picked the dog up to try and test the dog's reactions when the weight is taken off his paws.
"Oh noo" says the vet in an extremely worried tone of voice. "This is no good, no good at all. I will have to put the dog down, right away." The owner became extremely upset, he was very attached to the dog and had him since a puppy. "What on earth is the matter with the dog".
The vet then says, "Oh noo, your dog is very heavy, I really do not want to drop him, so I will put him back down on the table".
