Under the Influence

As I was walking home, I saw a man walking a Jack Russell dog. The dog was very friendly and jumped on me.

"She likes girls!" the man said.

After stroking the dog's head she ran off ahead.

"She's a cute dog!" I said.

"She's my neighbour's dog," he said. "She doesn't like people who drink alcohol, she really goes for them."

Later, I noticed an item on the news about a group of MPs (Members of Parliaments) recommending people to abstain from alcohol two days a week.

I reckon my Jackie Russell friend influenced those MPs to make that recommendation.
