Am I supposed to know if yaks Moo?

So, Keira and I had our first fight.
You see... she has this alphabet book. Each page has a letter and images that start with that letter. A has an apple, etc. "Y" had a picture of a Yak.
Keira pointed to the Yak and said, "Cow. Moo!"
I lovingly pointed out, "No sweetie. That is a yak. See? It has looong fur and horns. I have no idea if it moos. It might. Anyways, it's a yak."
She looked at me like I was a raving idiot, pointed back at the book and said, "No, no! Moo! Cow!" and turned the page to Z.
I sat in silence for a moment.
Was that our first argument?
Really?
That was it?

And she thinks I'm an idiot.
Awesome.
I still have no idea if it moos.

You dork. Keira's right AND wrong. A yak is a member of the bovine family, but apart from grunting when agitated, hungry or calling their young, they make no sound at all. PAY ATTENTION MAURA!!!!

Yaks don't moo. They only make grunts.
