A young cowboy from Southern Colorado( possibly Blackowz) goes off to college at
CSU, but half way through the semester, he has foolishly
squandered all his money

He calls home. 'Dad,' he says, 'You won't believe what
modern education is developing! They actually have a program
here in Fort Collins that will teach our dog, Ol' Blue how to

'That's amazing,' his Dad says. 'How do I get Ol' Blue in
that program?'

'Just send him down here with $1,000' the young cowboy
says. 'I'll get him in the course.'

So, his father sends the dog and $1,000.

About two-thirds through the semester, the money again runs
out. The boy calls home. 'So how's Ol' Blue doing son,' his
father asks.

'Awesome, Dad, he's talking up a storm,' he says, 'but you
just won't believe this - they've had such good results they
have started to teach the animals how to read!'

'Read!' says his father, 'No kidding! How do we get Blue in
that program?'

Just send $2,500, I'll get him in the class.'

The money promptly arrives.

But our hero has a problem. At the end of the year, his
father will find out the dog can neither talk, nor read.

So he shoots the dog!

When he arrives home at the end of the year, his father is
all excited. 'Where's Ol' Blue? I just can't wait to see him
read something and talk!'

'Dad,' the boy says, 'I have some grim news. Yesterday
morning, just before we left to drive home, Ol' Blue was in
the living room, kicked back in the recliner, reading the
Wall Street Journal, like he usually does.

Then he turned to me and asked, 'So, is your daddy still
messing' around with that little redhead who lives in town?'

The father exclaimed, 'I hope you shot that SOB before he
talks to your Mother!'

'I sure did, Dad!'

'That's my boy!'

The kid went on to be a successful lawyer ....... And then
he went on to become a politician.
