"Where's he go?"
"Well, the fish probably ate him after he died. Do you want to touch it?"
Hesitantly, she took the shell in her hand and studied it.
"You can keep it if you like; you can put it on the shelf with the shells you found at the lake."
"No. Should I put it in the toilet?"
"No, you can just throw it away if you like."
Just a little sign of her becoming a grown-up: she realizes that pets are treated differently than non-pets. The snail's shell wasn't to be played with like the ones found in the sand - as with the fish that have died in the past, the snail's remains were to be disposed of.
