Thank you so much Tor for taking the time to play-test with me and provide useful feedback.

Big thanks to the very real, very friendly, very adorable and super fluffy Otso and Anya who provided inspiration for the ‘toy theives’ (they wouldn’t do that in real life).

And finally, a massive thank you to my muse, Peanut the Chihuahua. Who has taught me so much about how impulsive, comical, brave, annoying, intelligent, adorable, fragile, persistent, aggressive, ridiculous and lovable Chihuahuas are as a breed.
