This short story is notable for many things: Besides being Gallacci's first work in almost a decade, it's also notable for being one of Gallacci's few works that feature human beings as the main characters, not to mention being more erotically charged than previous works. Also, this is one of his few works with no militaristic undertones, as none of the characters are soldiers or members of any kind law-enforcing agency.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: Probably not intentional, but the scene when Maria [[spoiler:deactivates Alphie's RestrainingBolt from his wrists so he could deal with Kyle using physical force by his own will]] is very similar to a scene in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' when [[spoiler:Integra does the same with Alucard, so he could use his OneWingedAngel form of Dracula during the final battle in both the manga and the anime [=OVAs=]]].
* YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious: Kyle got even more angrier with Alphie when [[spoiler:after being free from the influence of his [[RestrainingBolt restraining bolts]], Alphie address Kyle by his ''name'' rather than being called "sir" as a way to show Alphie is not under the control of any human being anymore]]:
--->'''Kyle:''' Wait, [[spoiler:"Kyle"? Since when did'ja get so uppity?]]


* GoldDigger: Kyle again. It's explained the only reason he's living with Maria is because he need both his mother and Maria's money to get booze [[spoiler:and drugs]].

to:

* DomesticAbuse: The premise of the story deals with a girl who is verbally and psychologically abused by her husband, and she tries to find pleasure with her sentient, antropomorphic dog.
* GoldDigger: Kyle again. It's explained the only reason he's living with Maria is because he need both [[MommasBoy his mother mother]] and Maria's money to get booze [[spoiler:and drugs]].


Added DiffLines:

* LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy: The premise of the story is about a setting when domestic pets are humanized, but are still treated like mindless beasts by people like Kyle.
