There were these two buddies out walking their dogs, one with a Doberman pinscher and the other with a Chihuahua, when they smelled something delicious coming from a nearby restaurant.

The guy with the Doberman says to his friend, “Let’s go over to that restaurant and get something to eat.” The guy with the Chihuahua says, “ We can’t go in there. We’ve got dogs with us.” The buddy with the Doberman says, “Just follow my lead.” He puts on a pair of dark glasses and walks into the restaurant, when the restaurant owner comes up and says, “Sorry, pal, no pets allowed.” The man with the Doberman replies, “You don’t understand. This is my Seeing Eye dog.”

The owner, skeptical, says, “A Doberman pinscher?” The Doberman’s master says, “Yes, they’re using them now—they’re very good and they protect me from robbers, too.” The owner says, “ Come on in.”

When the man with the Chihuahua sees this, he puts on a pair of dark glasses and starts to walk in. Once again the restaurant owner says, “Sorry, pal, no pets allowed.” The guy with the Chihuahua says, “You don’t understand. This is my Seeing Eye dog.”

“A Chihuahua?” says the owner.

The man with the dog replies, “ A Chihuahua? They gave me a Chihuahua?!”
