WHY DO WE NEVER TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT VETINARI AND MARGOLOTTA HAVE MATCHING UGLY LAPDOGS??
I mean come on nothing says “evil political soulmates” more than fugly twin pets (though Margolotta’s “ratlike dog/doglike rat” turned into something like an Eevee crossed with a chiwawa, and much cuter than intended? Whoops. And…I’m pretty sure Mr Fusspot was a pug, or had pug in him somewhere? Eh I can’t draw dogs to save my life anyway). I bet they take them for walkies together whenever Margo’s in the city and play fetch whilst they discuss assassinations and clever political stuff.
Yes, Margolotta’s expression is basically “Oh how adorable get it out of my face before I kill it.”
