Definition of Kvetch

A Jewish man has a talking dog.  He asks the dog to “Go fetch!”  Instead of fetching, the dog berates the man with a barrage of complaints about how it doesn’t get enough walks, Mild Bones, petting, or sniffing and running time with other dogs in the park.  “What’s this? the owner asks his talking dog.  “I simply asked you to go fetch.”  The talking Jewish dog says, “Oh, I’m sorry.  I thought you said ‘kvetch.’”
