A lady pulled into a crowded parking lot and rolled down the car windows to make sure her Labrador Retriever had fresh air.

The dog was stretched out on the back seat, and the owner wanted to impress upon her canine friend that she must remain there.

She walked to the curb backward, pointing her finger at the car and saying emphatically:
"Now you stay!. Do you hear me? Stay!"

The driver of a nearby car gave her a startled look.
"I don't know about you lady," he said incredulously, "But I usually just put my car in park."
