The duck

I could not resist posting this silly story.
My thanks to the originator;

A woman brought a limp duck to the vet.
She laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's
The vet shook his head and said,
 "I'm sorry,
 your duck is dead."

The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?"
"Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," 
replied the vet..

"How can you be so sure?" she protested. 
"You haven't done any testing on him or anything.
He might just be in a coma or something."

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the
room. He returned a few minutes later with a black
Labrador Retriever. 
As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. 
He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.

The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out
of the room and returned with a cat. 
The cat jumped on the table and sniffed the bird from head to foot. 
The cat shook its head, meowed softly and
strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the woman and said,
"I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely,
a dead duck."

The vet turned to his computer terminal, 
hit a few keys and produced a bill.
The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill.  "$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"

The vet shrugged,
"I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, 
the bill would have been $20, but with the
Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's now $150."

Once again my thanks
