A Dog Named Chief
In the Blue Ridge Mountains, there was a retired sailor who was reputed
to have the best hunting dog ever, by the name of "Chief".
Three Admirals went-up into the mountains and wanted to rent him. The
old sailor said good hunting dog... gonna cost ya $50.00 a day." They
agreed and three days later came back with the limit.
The next year they came back. "Chief" got better, gonna cost you $75.00
a day," again they agreed, and 2 days later they came back with the limit.
The third year they came back and told the old sailor they had to have
"Chief" even if it cost $100.00 a day. The old sailor replied,
"You can have the worthless mutt for $5.00 a day, and I'm overcharging
The bewildered Admirals asked, "But we don't understand, what happened to him?"
"Well, a crew from the Navy base in Norfolk came up and rented him.
One of the idiots called him Master Chief, and he's just been sitting
on his butt barkin' like heck ever since..."
