Don’t Mess With The Top Dog

A lawyer’s dog, running unleashed, runs into a butcher shop and steals a roast. The butcher goes into lawyer’s office and asks, “if a dog running unleashed steals a piece of meat from my store, do I have a right to demand payment for the meat from the dog’s owner?” The lawyer answers, “Absolutely.” “Then you owe me $8.50 because your dog stole a roast from me today,” continues the butcher. The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a check for $8.50 and the butcher leaves. A few days later, the butcher receives a letter from the lawyer: $20 due for a consultation.
