Margie: Edna, today is Dog Walking Day so a lot of folks will be out walking their pets. I bet we could find some nice gentlemen to talk to at the park.
Wait! We don't have a dog. Let me call Gracie's Market and see if she has a leash that will fit you.
Edna: Margie, Cujo has a sweeter disposition than you do. Folks, let me tell you why we don't have a dog: it's because animals are good judges of character and no pet wants to live in the same house as Margie. Lucky animals.
When we go out for our evening constitutional later, I think I'll bring along some doggie biscuits for all the dogs out being walked.
Margie: Edna, you're right, only dogs would be likely to eat your biscuits.
