Example: [Brunvand, 1986]
So when her husband was sick one evening, the wife took the dog out instead. And to her surprise the dog pulled vigorously at the leash and led her around the block to a house around the corner and began to scratch at the door. A female voice called out, "I won't be a minute, darling."
Soon the door was opened by an attractive young woman in a negligee, and the dog dashed in straight to a dish of meat that was waiting for him — as usual.
A typical "adulterer caught" legend, this one features the irony of human infidelity being revealed by "man's best friend."
