Harvey stared at the dog. The dog stared back. They had been like that for a few minutes now, only broken when Charlie whined softly and placed his head on Harvey's knee. Harvey continued to stare before reaching over and petting the dog, only to have it settle next to him contently.

He never had a dog, even as a kid. His father hadn't liked them - his father hadn't liked many things when it came down to it, and Harvey was smart enough to filter his stubbornness to other causes. Charlie rolled his head and Harvey scratched behind his ear. It was a shame he never tried, he thought vaguely as he regarded the animal.

Joker, meanwhile, was too busy actually ordering Buffo the dumb lackey to go get some fucking dog chow over the phone to pay attention to the fact that Harvey was reliving his childhood (or lack thereof) through Tommy's dog.

He hung up and wandered into the room, crossing his arms and staring at Harvey. "I am going to take such good care of this dog that people will want me to open a fucking kennel."

Bitter that people don't believe him when it comes to dogs, even though he lies all the time and has no reason to be trusted? Of course not.

"They think you'll feed it an explosive and send it into a kindergarten classroom." Harvey responded as he rubbed behind Charlie's ears. There was a time he would have been concerned that the Joker would have taken his idea and done it for kicks. Now he knew better than to think he could ever come up with something more horrifying than what the man would end up doing himself.

...The idea had merit. He contemplated it for a minute before shaking his head to clear out the thought of exploding dogs and babies. "No, I like dogs. They'll get over it. And if Tommy didn't want, uh, wanted me to stay away from his stupid pooch, he would've given you some kibble."

He stared at the dog, mulling it over. "I remember him being less lazy when I went to see Tommy." Or had he been just as lazy? He'd been a little too distracted by Tommy's rack to bother watching the damned dog.

"You know, Harvey, we haven't had a real heart-to-heart lately. What have you been up to, other than your new found empire?"

"He's tired." Harvey isn't sure when the dog stopped being an 'it' and started being a 'he' but there was the shift. "The annoying yelping must have worn him out."

Harvey glanced over at the second heart, contemplating the other man for a moment before turning back to the dog. "Don't pretend you don't know every detail of what I've been up to. Ignorance doesn't suit you." He answered, letting the silence stretch. "I promised I'd clean the streets didn't I?" And that he was doing, slowly and brutally.

"Maybe if you had done this an hour or so ago, he'd be a little more energetic."

The Joker held out his hands and came forward, looking smug. "A parent always knows what their kids have been up to, but they still ask how their day was. How's it, uh, how is everything working for you?"

"Didn't know you had a thing for the redundant. You learn new things every day." Harvey answered dryly as the dog looked suspiciously between them. "I took care of the Russians. The Chinese are starting up again, underground street gangs." He snorted derisively. "Punks, nothing more."

The Joker just laughed and sauntered over, collapsing on the other side of Harvey. He wasn't in the mood for dogs, really, he was just proving Tommy wrong out of spite.

"Maybe that's what you can use Charlie here for." A giggle, "Bait."
