American Sign Language: "pet"

The sign for "pet" looks like you are petting an animal.  If you do this sign using two quick, small, motions it means "a pet."  If you use a larger double motion it means "to pet" or "petting."  If you use a sarcastic facial expression and exaggerate the contact between your hands it can be used to mean "spoiled" -- as in "he is the teacher's pet." 

Sample sentence: "Do you have a pet?"
