I was sent a funny email the other day and I wanted to pass it on. It's so typical of this area.
It seems this guy was over visitin' his elderly mother the other day and she was all worked up about somethin' she had seen when she was drivin' down one of the streets in Springfield. She passed a guy goin' the other way and his dog was hangin' over the tailgate of his pickup. She said the dog was just hangin' there! She was so upset when she got home that she called the police department and told them about the dog hangin' over the tailgate. The officer told her without the license plate number or the make of the truck there wasn't much they could do. She said she didn't get the license number and she hadn't noticed what kind of pickup truck it was because she wasn't lookin' at that, she was too busy lookin' at that poor animal hangin' over that bumper!
This guy did his best to reassure his mom that the dog was probably okay, that someone had finally gotten his attention and the dog was saved. When he really thought the poor dog was probably dead. Not an easy ordeal for an animal to go through.
The guy forgot about the episode but about two weeks later he was pullin' into the Bass Pro shop and this is what he saw.
The truck belonged to a taxidermist!
