A: Did you see that video on Sina Weibo of a dog licking plates in a restaurant?

你看到微博上一条小狗在餐厅舔餐盘的视频了吗?

(nǐ kàndào wēibó shànɡ yītiáo xiǎoɡǒu zài cāntīnɡ tiǎn cānpánde shìpín le ma?)

B: Yes, I saw it. A girl brought a dog into a restaurant while eating and let it get on the table and lick the plates.

我看见了。是一女子带狗到餐厅吃饭时,允许狗上桌舔餐盘。

(wǒ kànjiàn le.shì yī nǚzǐ dàiɡǒu dào cāntīnɡ chīfàn shí, yǔnxǔ ɡǒu shànɡzhuō tiǎn cānpán.)

A: And it was the people who were eating her that uploaded to video to show off.

而且还是一起吃饭的人把视频发到了网上炫耀。

(érqiě háishì yīqǐ chīfàn de rén bǎ shìpín fādào le wǎnɡshànɡ xuànyào.)

B: This incident made a lot of netizens unhappy. 

这件事引起了许多网友的不满。

(zhèjiànshì yǐnqǐle xǔduō wǎnɡyǒude bùmǎn.)

A: Official regulations clearly stipulate that you are prohibited from bringing dogs into any indoor public space. Adhering to this shows respect for others and yourself.

管理条例都有明确规定禁止带狗进入一切室内公共场所。这样做既是尊重别人,也是尊重自己。

(ɡuǎnlǐ tiáolì dōuyǒu mínɡquè ɡuīdìnɡ jìnzhǐ dài ɡǒu jìnrù yīqiē shìnèi ɡōnɡɡònɡ chǎnɡsuǒ.zhèyànɡzuò jìshì zūnzhònɡ biérén, yěshì zūnzhònɡ zìjǐ.)

B: The owner didn't see the "No pets allowed" sign. She took all the plates the dog licked. 

宠物主人忽视了宠物禁止入内的标语。被狗舔过的餐盘最后被她带走了。

(chǒnɡwù zhǔrén hūshì le chǒnɡwù jìnzhǐ rùnèi de biāoyǔ.bèiɡǒu tiǎnɡuòde cānpán zuìhòu bèi tā dàizǒu le.)
