... when your dog can easily eat the treats, but instead decides to bring you the open container just so they can hear you praise as well.

... when they ignore you, but follow random people around intently, offering behavior after behavior - and just when you wonder why they've never looked at *you* with such devotion, you realize the other person has a hand in their pocket.

...when a friend comes over with their new baby, who goes into a fit of sneezing....and your dog proceeds to not only bring Kleenex after Kleenex, but bring the whole box.
...when you take your dog to Petsmart and she overhears the trainer giving a dog a command...and she follows it.
