A few months ago, I was at the local park with Colby (canaan dog/jack russell terrier) and May (chocolate labrador retriever). A little girl had stopped me so she could pet the dogs, her mother was watching the soccer game that was going on at the park. A while later, a woman and her son (my Mom knows them, actually) came over and started to pet the dogs, too. Colby, being totally food motivated, and see the woman had in apple in her hand, sat there staring upward with her "I'm starving" look on when suddenly the woman's son goes, "Mom, can we get a dog?" then, "I want that one!" and points at Colby.
