this really happened.
woman 1 (from half a block away): "oh my! chihuahua! look at her.ooooh, oooooh, look!"
pensive girl (thinking): it's a boy. my dog is a BOY.
kolby: starts pulling on his leash to get to loud, adoring woman faster. wags his tail. begins to bounce up the sidewalk.
woman 2: looks slightly annoyed. tries to hurry woman 1 along.
director's notes: the women, now a foot away from pensive girl and pup, stop walking. woman 1 leans down to pet panting kolby.
woman 1:"look at you little doggy. chihuahua. how are you doing. what's going on doggy? i hope you have a good doggy day!"
pensive girl: yanks on kolby's leash to get him to keep walking toward the tulips. away from the women. thinks somewhat audibly, though most definitely out of earshot, "amazing that she had an entire conversation with my dog and didn't say one word to me."
