A lady tries to board an El Al plane bound for Israel, she is holding a little crate. When asked what was in the crate she tells them it is her beloved dog and he is to ride with her on his own seat.
"Impossible" says the clerk "the dog must ride in baggage" "NEVER!" screams the woman "this is the most wonder, precious doggie in the world, I would never let him ride in baggage"
She pleads her case, higher and higher up the chain of command, pleading, she would pay any price and finally she speaks to the president of the airline.
He understands her problem but still the law is the law and the dog must ride in baggage, but he assures her that the dog will be put in a special area, and will get the best of care. The president of company tells her he will meet the plane as it lands and will see to the safe delivery of the dog to her. The woman, with heavy heart agrees.
When the plane lands in Israel, lo and behold they find the dog dead. Oh, my what to do, they decide they will go and buy a dog that looks the same and present it to her. One look at the dog and the woman screams. "THAT'S NOT MY DOG"
After a bit of trying to convince her that it is indeed her dog, they ask her how she can be so sure it is not her dog after such a brief look.
