    everyone/anyone

    Which is correct:
    1-My dog wants to play with everybody.
    2-My dog wants to play with anybody.

    Meaning:
    My dog wants to play with everybody he meets.
    He does not want to play with everybody at the same time, obviously. That would be impossible.


    Gratefully,
    Navi.
