A lawyer's dog, running about unleashed, beelines for a butcher shop and steals a piece of meat.

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, "Absolutely."
"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.

Several days later the butcher got a mail, opens the mail and finds enclosed an envelope from the lawyer: $20 due for the consultation.
