The Choking Doberman
This story dates at least from the 16th century. One
peculiar modern version concludes with the vet telling
the dog owner that the dog will have to be destroyed
because once it has tasted human blood it will be a
killer for the rest of its life.
A woman came home very late one evening to find her
Doberman pinscher lying on the living room floor, blood
coming from its mouth, and choking. She called her vet
who told her to bring the dog to the animal hospital at
In the examination room the vet gave her an initial
"Whatever your dog tried to swallow is still lodged in
its throat," the vet said. "And from the blood I'd say
that whatever is down there has ruptured a blood vessel.

call you in a couple of hours after surgery."
When the woman entered her house, she was surprised to

"Yes," she said, "but I don't know anything about it.
You'll have to talk to my veterinarian."

choking to death tonight. When I examined the animal's
throat I found these." From her coat pocket the vet drew
out a clear plastic bag. Inside were three human
"It seems to me that the intruder could still be inside
the house," the vet said.
"We get the picture," one of the cops said. "Both of you
wait here while we search the house."
A few minutes later the police officers emerged from the
house. They had a man with them, who was moaning and
clutching his left hand which was covered with blood and
missing three fingers.
