The menagerie in Book 4 continues to grow. Joining the German shepherd, Capuchin monkey, Grey parrot & 3 cats are 2 fussy, mouthy toy poodles named Dior and Chanel.
They belong to the Mayor’s spoiled egocentric wife, Helen-Ophelia, who is all about luxury & hedonism.
So this of course means I have to work this annoying little pair into a few scenes, extending previously-written chapters & preventing me from carrying the story on with any new chapters for awhile.
But this addition will only enrich the story. I’m already envisioning poor zoophobic Kaiser being pursued by the 2 poodles and the Capuchin monkey straddling his back!
