OK, I can beat you all...
We have a staffordshire terrier mix, weighs about 45 lbs. Laila is deaf, so doesn't always pick up on "traditional" dog signals or communication. But she has picked up on the fact that Bandit loves ice.
So one of two things happens on a regular basis (pretty much daily).
1) Laila wants to play, but Bandit doesn't. So Laila will go to the ice maker, push the button with her nose (because she can reach easily), get an ice cube, carry it to Bandit, lay it down in front of him, and "bribe" him to play with her.
2) Bandit wants ice but Laila is ignoring him (can't hear him). So he will take a running leap, pounce on her, initiate a huge game of wrestle/chase/tug, then when they are done, go put his paws on the fridge. At which point Laila will nose the ice maker, get him an ice cube, and "thank" him for playing with her.
