Barking mad

Lawyers can be an eccentric bunch and one particular partner at Clifford Chance in Paris is no exception: said partner keeps a pretty Parisian poodle in the office.

While working late one night, one fresh-faced associate was surprised to hear the pitter-patter of little feet and when turning a corner saw the pooch scamper into the partner's office. The associate shrugged, giggled and went off to complete his work. It was only upon entering la toilette later that night that the associate was truly shocked to see the partner bathing the poodle in a wash basin.
