A blind man is walking down the street with his seeing-eye dog. They
come to a busy intersection and the dog, ignoring the high volume of
traffic zooming by on the street, leads the blind man right out into
thethick of the traffic. This is followed by the screech of tires and
horns blaring as panicked drivers try desperately not to run the pair
The blind man and the dog finally reach the safety of the sidewalk on
other side of the street and the blind man pulls a cookie out of his coat
pocket which he offers to the dog.
A passerby, having observed the near fatal incident, can't control his
amazement and says to the blind man, "Why on earth are you
rewarding your dog with a cookie? He nearly got you killed!"
The blind man turns partially in his direction and replies, "To find out
where his head is, so I can kick his ass."
