If she could talk, I’m pretty sure much of the conversation would have been something like this…

“What’s THAT?!” (pulling on leash)

“What’s wha-”

“It’s a squirrel! It’s a SQUIRREL, Mom, I know it is!”

“Harlow, that’s not a squirrel”

“Yes, it is! I’m sure of it!”

“No, it’s a stick, sweet g-”

SQUIRREL!…let’s go see!” (pulls harder on leash)

“OK, we’re headed that way anyway.”

“See I told you! It’s a…”

“…A stick…It’s a stick, little girl”

“Oh, you’re right” (dog sighs) “It is a stick”

“Told you…”

“What’s THAT!? It’s a BIRD! C’mon!” (gets yanked in other new direction)
