A Lawyer Needed To Pay The Damage That His Dog Did

A lawyer’s dog runs around town unleashed, heads for a butcher shop and steals a roast.  The butcher goes to the 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, “Definitely.”

“Then you owe me $8.50. Your dog was loose and stole a roast from me today.”

The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a check for $8.50. The butcher, having a feeling of satisfaction, leaves.

Three days later, the butcher finds a bill from the lawyer:

$100 is due for a consultation.
