My wife and nine year old daughter came across this little girl at the local pet store. She is an Akita-Lab mix. Fortunately, having two dogs already serves to immunize one against the Puppy Dog close (unless, of course, you are a nine year old girl).
The daughter is a great salesperson because she has the primary attribute needed to succeed in sales: a relentless, single-minded persistence. But she lost this sale.
One Tip: Sending a picture isn't nearly as effective as sending the Puppy Dog itself.
