A Boy and His Dog

A boy stands with his dog by his side, facing a busy sidewalk, holding a sign that says “Hear my dog talk for $1”. A man walks up and drops a dollar in the jar on the ground in front of the boy and says, “Let’s hear it”. Excitedly, the boy looks to his dog and says, “Sparky, how does sandpaper feel?” The dog goes, “Rough!” Amused by the display, the man smiles and carries on down the sidewalk. A second man walks up and drops a dollar in the jar. Again the boy looks to his dog and asks, “Sparky, how does sandpaper feel?” The dog goes, “Rough!” Apparently irritated by this, the man says, “Kid, you need to stop this.” The boy and his dog watch confused as the man continues down the sidewalk. A third man walks up and drops a dollar in the jar. Excitedly, the boy looks down at his dog and says, “Sparky, how does sandpaper feel?” The dog goes, “Rough!” The man says, “This is a scam, kid. You’re never going to learn to stop taking advantage of people unless I take my dollar back.” He reaches into the jar, pulls out a dollar, and continues down the street. Confused, the boy and his dog watch as the man walks by. After the man is out of sight, the boy looks down at his dog and says, “I wonder what that was about.” The dog replies, “I know. That wasn’t even his dollar.”
