"You think?" said Max.

"You didn't think it was worth making a fuss?"

"And why should you?" said Max, "You don't eat dog treats?"
"Well no but that's not the reason I .."
"Perhaps" cut in Max "there are other dog owners,, no, no, perhaps there are dog lovers indeed. that did choose to raise the question, at the bar at least, if not with the brewery"
"Now that not fair Max, we have been to other pubs that do..."
"Never mind" said Max, "I am a dog and therefore you are forgiven."
"Max I just want to say.."
Do pass me a treat" interjected Max, "one of the brown ones."
