Many of the humans enjoy auctions, but I think some of them get a little too excited over them. There is one person my humans knew years ago who went to an auction and he bought a chair. He was so pleased with his purchase, and he was bragging about how he only paid $10. for the chair. He said, "I would have paid $20, but my wife said, shut up and quit bidding because no one else is bidding". This is why is it important for some of the humans to have a dog. We dogs would not have been dumb enough to bid against ourselves.
