It was a close encounter with Cruella Deville at 7th and Montana yesterday as a local version of the fur-ocious 101 Dalmatians scoundrel made the scene. And like her cartoon counterpart, she was obsessed with a local purebred: Reggie, the Polish Lowland Sheepdog. “That dog,” she shrieked, “He’s irresistible. May I pet him …?” Without waiting for an answer, she began stroking Reggie’s fur. “So soft,” she cooed, “So luxurious … so lustrous. It’s everything one would want in a dog’s coat and more!” I whipped out my Spycam and kept a close eye on her. “You know,” she told Richard, “His fur would make an excellent sweater!” “There's an idea,” I muttered, "But wouldn't he make a better throw rug?" Meanwhile, as for Reggie, he couldn't take his eyes off Cruella. No doubt he was thinking what a perfect chew toy he could make out of her hair ...!
