Mexican Stray Dog

A woman from San Diego, California went to Tijuana, Mexico to shop. Almost everyone familiar with this town on the border knows the shopping area is reknown for having lots of stray dogs. The woman took pity on one stray and fed it. In return, the stray followed her around all afternoon.

After doing all her shopping, the woman had become very attached to her new "friend" and didn't want to leave it behind. Since it's illegal to bring dogs across the international border, she hid the stray with her packages and managed to smuggle it across. When she got home, she gave her new dog a bath, brushed its hair and went to bed with the pet curled up on her bed.

The next morning she noticed oozing liquid around the dog's eyes and foam coming out of its mouth. The dog was obviously sick so she rushed it to the nearest vet and waited for his call. The call soon came. "I have one question for you," said the vet. "Where did you get this dog?" The woman didn't want to get in trouble so she said it was a stray she found near her house. However, the vet didn't believe her.

"This dog is not from near your home. Where did you get it?" Finally, she gave in and admitted it was from across the border. Curious, she asked what was wrong with her dog. The vet was blunt and to the point. "First, it's not a dog. It's a Mexican sewer rat. Second, it's dying."
