Conversations with my dad

I love talking to my dad; I never know what he's going to say.

“Did you ever have a dog that died of old age?”
“No, back in the day in Mexico all my dogs contracted rabies, so we had to shoot them.”
 “What?  There was no other way.  We couldn’t risk being bitten by a rabid dog.”

“On the McGarraugh ranch, did any of your cows ever die?”
“Of course they died.”
“Did you ever become emotionally attached to them?  Were you sad?”
“Yes, I was sad because every time a cow died, I lost $1,000.”
