The Italian Funeral Dog
An Italian man was leaving a convenience store with his
espresso when he noticed a most unusual Italian funeral
procession approaching the nearby cemetery. A black hearse was
followed by a second black hearse about 50 Feet behind the
first one. Behind the second hearse was a solitary Italian man
walking a dog on a leash. Behind him, a short distance back,
were about 200 men walking single file.
The man couldn’t stand the curiosity. He respectfully
approached the Italian man walking the dog and said:
“I am so sorry for your loss, and this may be a bad time to
disturb you, but I’ve never seen an Italian funeral like this.
Whose funeral is it?”
”What happened to her?”
“She yelled at me and my dog attacked and killed her.”
He inquired further, “But who is in the second hearse?”
The Italian man answered, “My mother-in-law. She was trying to
help my wife when the dog turned on her.”
A very poignant and touching moment of Italian brotherhood and
silence passed between the two men.
“Can I borrow the dog?”
The man replied, “Get in line.”
