Column: Harlow the dog — Chicago icon, Instagram influencer, good boy — has died after delivering joy and laughs during lockdown

“Harlow Hillis passed peacefully in his parents’ arms on Saturday, June 5. Born in Gridley, Kansas, he soon relocated to Chicago to pursue a career in acting and stopping by Target. You may remember him from a Volvo commercial (shown online only one time back in 2013) or perhaps from dramatically lying outside of the Target on Division street, refusing to move until his mom took him inside. Har loved his walks and never forgot a water bowl or treat jar, even when they were no longer there. Some of his hobbies included begging for hot dogs at Vinny D’s (he once tried to jump through their window) growling at plastic bags blowing in the wind, and casually pretending to stop and tie his shoe (he didn’t wear shoes) when passing the dirty dish bucket outside of Smoke Daddy. Har retired in the mountains of Colorado where he spent his last year hiking, going on road trips and welcoming a baby sister, whom he tolerated. He will be greatly missed by his family, mostly his parents, Chris and Taylor, who loved him so very much. He was everything they could have asked for and more in a best friend. They will miss his snoring, his singing, and his ability to press, ‘accessible ability shortcuts’ on the remote control at any given time. But most of all they will miss him. He was the best boy ever. In lieu of flowers Harlow made one last request: That you donate your Instant Pots … straight to the trash. Those things are evil.”
