I'm sitting in the back of the horse truck watching the showjumping at a local show. Two young children walk past with their dachshund puppy.

"Look dogs!" I say to our two very excited dogs, "a puppy!"

The children take this as an invitation and march up the tailboard into the truck.

"I know what kind of dog that one is!" declares the boy, pointing to Sprite who is a miniature fox terrier. "That's a Jack Terrier! Isn't it?"

"Um ... yes" I agree. I point to the puppy and ask, "and what's that?"

As he is thinking, the little girl gives me a look and says, "it's a DOG"
