Heard on climb-out shortly after taking off behind a Bonanza A36:

Bonanza:
"Departure, this is Bonanza 12A. Ahh, we just got started here but need to come back."

Departure Control:
"Bonanza 12A, understand you want to return to the field."

Bonanza:
"Affirmative. 12A."

Departure Control:
"Bonanza 12A, do you need any assistance?"

Bonanza:
"No. We just left the dog in the car."

Departure Control:
"Roger. Bonanza A12, turn right to 350 for sequencing. Expect runway 8L."
