"Did you have a good run this morning? I suppose you got dirty and rolled in the seaweed! "
"Excuse me – would you stop talking and give me a biscuit?"
"They won’t stop talking! They’re taking no notice of me. Will you give me a biscuit?"
"What do you mean You don't have one? It's a human's job to carry dog biscuits around with them!
"Hey, you’re my owner. Can’t you at least give me a biscuit? You must have one somewhere!"
"OK, so she gave me a biscuit. But that seems a long time ago now!"
"Any chance of a rub behind the ears?"
"I hope someone gives you a rub behind the ears - or the human equiavlent - today. And have a happy Labor Day tomorrow."
