Larry got off the elevator on the 40th floor and nervously knocked on his blind date’s door. She opened it and to his amazement and joy, was as lovely and sweet as his friend Dave had promised.
“I’ll be ready in a few minutes,” she said. “Why don’t you play with Snuggles while you’re waiting? She does wonderful tricks. She’ll roll over, shake hands, sit up and if you make a hoop with your arms, like this, she’ll jump through.”
The dog followed Larry out onto the balcony and started rolling over. Larry made a hoop with his arms and sure enough, Snuggles jumped right through - and then over the balcony railing just before Larry’s date walked out!
“Isn’t little Snuggles the cutest, happiest dog you’ve ever seen?”
“To tell the truth,” he replied, “she seemed a little depressed to me.”
