Intelligently written and as quickly as a Greyhound chasing Rusty, the electronic speed-rabbit at the Kennel Club Puppy Track, author Anne Gilbert requires her readers by the collar and pulls them speedily into story retribution, revenge, and reprisal in her novelette, Mayor of the Dog Park. A whole vacant lot reclaimed by a city in Palm Seaside County, Florida, the canine park named “Faux Paws” became a day-to-day regimen for designer canines, pedigrees, hounds, mutts, and their owners of various “human-breeds” as well. Animally bonded, the K-9s and their respective 401K owners seem to be appropriately matched in temperament, personality, and intelligence. With names like Moe & Fortunate, Gimp & Muffle, Ramon & Lolita, and of the program the mayor Eddie, and his canine won from a church prize, Bingo; these duos split every afternoon to go to their separate respective areas inside of Faux Paws some go to the huge puppy area, other individuals to the little canine part, even though the owners pack into a party gazebo to speak. I have to admit, as a disclaimer, I am a dog lover extraordinaire, so reading this book was like rolling on my back getting my tummy scratched. As significantly as I have come to enjoy and understand the wonders of “Man’s greatest friend,” I too turn into emotionally outraged when hearing about animal cruelty, especially when intentionally done. Therefore I could relate to the feelings and motivations of the human characters in the mayor of the Dog Park; the occasions seem as logical as a border collie retrieving a tennis ball.
Nevertheless, for the sake of maintaining the effect of this story, I shall not inform any a lot more about the conditions that reveal themselves in Chapter 3.There is a clever foreshadowing concerning Eddie’s home, becoming a lavishly made residence built by a single of South Florida’s prominent architects. “The 3 story wonderful space was dominated by a huge Gothic design fireplace and walnut paneling. Almost certainly its most exciting aspect was the ceiling with a myriad of stars painted on the ceiling,” author Anne Gilbert wrote. Eddie’s recollection of the space was specified when on a trip to London, he saw a drawing of the real “Star Chamber” utilized in 15th Century England. The Mayor of the Puppy Park is a mature reading through escape, enabling for fast character development of the “Snow-bird” community of transplants from Chicago and other Northern cities of the US, as they conspire to do what every single puppy lover thinks of doing regarding animal abuse. Anne Gilbert is naturally a puppy owner. Judging by her writing quickness, agility, discombobulated machinations at times, and sense of humor, I’d bet she owns a type of terrier, like maybe a Jack Russell. But, no matter what breed she owns, her puppy has located a human that can be qualified, that’s for confident, qualified to create.
