A couple years ago, I was (jokingly) begging my parents for a dog as a Christmas present, but little did I know, they were actually serious about getting me one! I remember them telling me to get in the car without telling me what for, and about half an hour later, we arrived at our destination. We waited for several minutes, then this woman showed up with a little furry thing in her hands. When she placed him on the grass, it was evident that she was selling us a pure-bred Labrador Retriever, and my life has changed for the better ever since!
