Lilian and her three dogs walked by the store front, watching all the exciting products behind the windows, when they noticed something they just had to have, a big yellow rocking chair.
Lilian pressed her face against the glass, seeing as many different people sat on the chair and tested its rocking potentials. Her three dogs, a black lab, a Sheppard and lasa apso all agreed to go inside and take a closer look at the colorful piece of furniture.
As they went in, they noticed the store was full of other artifacts that seemed to be very expensive, and some items looked completely out of place to them. Lilian stared wide eyed at all the store had to offer, when suddenly an old man approached her and said, "How may I help you today young lady, looking for a special antique?"
Her three dogs sat shyly behind her, panting with their tongues out without yet being noticed by the store owner. Lilian thought about what she was going to say for a second, "I'd like to see that yellow rocking chair over there please," she said, vaguely pointing a finger in the chair's general direction.
The old man looked concerned, "Oh, I'm sorry but someone just bought it half an hour ago and is picking it up later today."

Lilian then noticed a sign on it with 'sold' printed with bold letters. "Oh," she replied, "that's too bad, me and my friends were very interested in it when we saw it on the window."
"Yes," the store owner added, "they don't make them like these anymore."
Although Lilian and her dogs felt disappointed by the sale of the chair as they exited the store, they still wanted to find out who had bought it. That someone must have a similar taste in chairs as she and her dogs. "I'd really love to meet the person who beat us to buying it," the girl told her dogs. The smallest of them, a Lasa Apso with brown curly hair stared at her eyes in agreement. The Sheppard however thought it would be best to forget all about the chair, "why don't we go and find some Italian food? I'm in a mood for meat balls," he barked.
Lilian and her dogs walked along the sidewalk until they reached an ice cream shop, there she bought one vanilla cone and shared it with them.
The street was a little busy today since it was a holiday, and after they finished their cold treat, Lilian saw somebody carry out the yellow rocking chair out of the antique store
