Dayo, Carol's dog

Dayo was a small black curly-haired mutt who used to sometimes come to work with Carol at the nature magazine. The nature magazine's offices were in a museum, and while Dayo was small, she wasn't small enough to fit in a handbag. But she could stay very still, at it was always dark in the museum when we got to work, so Carol would carry Dayo under her arm. One day when Carol was walking through the hall that led up to our offices, one of the guards saw Carol, but didn't really notice Dayo until she moved her head. He gasped, startled, and then laughed. "I thought she was a toy!" he said.
