I would bet dogs are conscious. I would bet that they have even 
reflexive consciousness, like most sufficiently big mammals.
"inner narrative" is asking too much imo.
No need of arithmetic done by dogs for dogs being (even reflexively) 
conscious. I guess the mirror test can be used (Cat and dogs go through 
it, isn't it?).
