“Flowers Seized from the Small Dog”  Pekingese was fulfilling her dreams one by one. After she was released from prison, and her podcast had gone viral, she was now receiving speaking engagement invitations regularly. She should have been happy, but she had a recurring nightmare. She often dreamed that just as her speech had ended, as the audience was applauding and she was being presented with a bouquet, the flowers were seized from her hands, and the cheers turned to boos as Pekingese slunk off the stage. Moral: Seize the day because the night might seize you.

Character Notes

“The Microphone and the Small Dog at the Prison”  Pekingese was lost. Not physically, as it is impossible to get lost in prison, where your every movement is controlled. But, lost in purpose. How could life be meaningful when her dreams of fame and fortune had crumbled as her fraud was exposed? Now she was stuck in prison, fearful the other dogs would eat her alive. One day, the warden made an announcement. Local university students would be running a new program, giving prisoners a chance to learn podcasting. Instantly, Pekingese knew this was her destiny. Prison or no, the microphone would drive her forward. Moral: Even prisons provide freedom.
