Smart boy!

A young man goes off to a private boarding college. Half way through his studies, he has foolishly finished all his money. So, he calls home. “Dad,” he says, “You won’t believe this that there is a fantastic program here that will teach a dog, how to talk!”
“Wow! That’s amazing. I'll our dog to that program? How much is the cost?”
“Just $1,500” the young man says.
“Ok." So, his father sends their dog and $1,500. However, sooner than that he runs out of money again. So, he calls home again.
“So how’s our dog doing, my son?” his father asks.
“ Fantastic! Dad, he can talk now!” he says, “but you just won’t believe this, dad. Now, they’ve an advanced class now. They have started to teach the dogs how to read!”
“Read? How do we get our dog in that class?” asks his father.
“Just send $3,500, and I’ll send him to this advanced class.” The money promptly arrives. But there is a real problem. At the end of the year, his father will find out that the dog can neither talk, nor read. So he shoots the dog.When he arrives home at the end of the year, his father is all excited.
“Where’s our dog? I just can’t wait to see him read something and talk!”
“Dad,” the boy says, “I have some bad news. Yesterday morning, just before we left to drive home, our dog was reading the Gossip section of the National Newspaper and then he turned to me and asked, “So, is your daddy still messing’ around with that blonde lady who lives in town?”
The father exclaimed, “I hope you shot that bloody dog! Before he tells your mother!”
“I certainly did, Dad!”
“That’s my boy!”
(Note:The kid went on to be a successful lawyer.)
