The Quotable Dog

While flipping idly through my eight available digital TV channels, I paused on a cooking & travel show that featured a farmer harvesting truffles in Provence. The farmer leashed up his truffle-hunting dog, and the program host said, "I thought truffle farmers traditionally used pigs to find the truffles." The farmer replied, "Dogs love their masters; pigs love truffles."
