A surreal phone call

Recorded voice:This is [political-sounding research group].  Do you own a small dog?
Me:No...?
Recorded voice:This survey was sponsored by [political-sounding research group].  Thank you.  *click*

Was it digging in their flower beds, or something?

Ha! I'd imagine this is how they figure out what percentage of people in the country own small dogs!

But wouldn't they go further, and ask about large dogs, or cats, or ferrets, or other animals or configurations of dog? Why just ask about small dogs and end the call?

My feelings exactly! I wouldn't find it quite so odd, except that the calling organization referred to itself as "Decision 2010" or something like that, which sounds very political.
