Pitch

There is a dog sitting at the corner. It is there all day and the next. He tells his wife. She says, “We don’t need another dog.” Like another table, or another car. He opens the door and the dog settles in. They call him Max, a Bernese Mountain-husky mix. Years later, the man hammering shingles on their roof says he owned their dog. Thinks about getting a new one.
