A woman and her dog

Yesterday as I was driving to work I saw a woman walking a dog. It wasn't any particular breed of dog and she wasn't any particular type of woman. Just a woman and a dog, walking down the hill. The dog (which was on a leash) made the mistake of crossing in front of the woman to sniff something. The woman stopped dead. The dog became very still. The expression on the woman's face said "OMG I can't BELIEVE you just did that!" The dog looked like it was thinking "Doh. Busted!" The woman shook the leash. The dog inched back a bit. The woman shook the leash again. The dog slunk back to her side. When I looked again they had continued walking.
This interaction amused me. The dog certainly couldn't see the expression on the woman's face and I don't think the woman could see the expression on the dog's face. The woman wasn't saying anything but both of them knew the dog had screwed up.
