I pulled into the crowded parking lot at the local shopping center, parked the car and rolled down the windows to make sure my Labrador Retriever Pup had fresh air.
She was laid there fully stretched out on the back seat and I wanted to impress upon her that she must remain there.
So, as I walked to the curb backward, I point my finger at the car and saying emphatically: “Now you stay. Do you hear me? Stay! Stay!”
The driver of a nearby car, a pretty blonde young lady who had seen me parking, gave me a strange look and said: “Why don’t you just put it in Park?”
