When I first got my blue merle sheltie as a very small puppy, we ran into a little boy (2 or 3?) and his father. The father asked if they could pet the puppy, and I said yes.
The little boy looked terrified of him and said "Woof! Woof!", (It took me a few seconds to realize he meant "wolf")
And his dad goes, "No, it's okay, buddy, it's just a baby puppy." And the little boy reaches out and gently starts petting him, saying "Cob!" (cub). It was one of the cutest things I have ever seen.
