Two hunters from Minnesota--(true story).  This is from a radio program, a
true report of an incident in Michigan:

A guy buys a brand new Lincoln Navigator for $42,500 and has $560 monthly
payments. He and a friend go duck hunting in winter, and of course all the
lakes are frozen.  These two guys go out on the lake with the guns, the
dog, and of course the new vehicle. They drive out onto the lake ice and
get ready.

Now, they want to make some kind of a natural landing area for the ducks,
something for the decoys to float on. In order to make a hole large enough
to look like something a wandering duck would fly down and land on, it is
going to take a little more effort than an ice hole drill.  So, out of the
back of the new Navigator comes a stick of dynamite with a short, 40-
second fuse. Now these two Rocket Scientists do take into consideration
that they want to place the stick of dynamite on the ice at a location far
from where they are standing (and the new Navigator), because they don't
want to take the risk of slipping on the ice when they run from the burning
fuse and possibly go up in smoke with the resulting blast.

They light the 40-second fuse and throw the dynamite.  Now remember the
dog. A highly trained Black lab used for RETRIEVING ...  especially things
thrown by the owner.  You guessed it, the dog takes off at a high rate of
doggy speed on the ice and captures the stick of dynamite with the burning
40-second fuse about the time it hits the ice.  The two men yell, scream,
wave their arms and wonder what to do now.  The dog, cheered on, keeps
coming towards them with the dynamite.

One of the guys grabs the shotgun and shoots the dog. The shotgun is loaded
with # 8 buckshot, hardly big enough to stop a Black Lab.  The dog stops
for a moment, slightly confused, but continues on. Another shot and this
time the dog, still standing, becomes really confused and of course
terrified, thinking these two geniuses have gone insane.

The dog takes off to find cover, under the brand new Navigator.


Dog and Navigator are blown to bits and sink to the bottom of the lake in a
very large hole, leaving the two idiots standing there with this "I can't
believe this happened" look on their faces.

The insurance company says that sinking a vehicle in a lake by illegal use
of explosives is not covered.He still had yet to make the first of those
$560 a month payments!

And you thought your day was not going well?
