Perhaps it was the line “snorting, wheezing, sneezing muffinheads"!?
Sadly, the book took a turn for the worst about half-way in, when for some inexplicable reason the author decides that babying her dogs wasn't enough, and now she wanted a “real child.” Poor Clara and her poor sister Sophie (who also sounded pretty cute even though she was totally nuts) were barely mentioned during this overly-detailed and frustrating portion of the book. Truly, I could not imagine someone voluntarily putting themselves through such a huge hassle of international adoption. (And the incompetence and disrespect that the adoption agency showed her was maddening).
At the end of the writing, the author should have considered changing the title of the book from “Clara: The story of the pug who ruled my life” to “Clara: The story of the pug who was relegated to the backseat of my life as I went through a tedious adoption process.”
Although, truthfully, she never really seemed enchanted with the pugs in the first place: pugs are not pets, they are your baby.
Just read one chapter and you are hooked. Neva S
