“Because the thing is, as Milo and my friends taught me, ghosts do exist. They don’t have to be the creepy monsters that cause nightmares or do harm. They can take the form of memories, of feelings, or of a hard-to-define presence. Or of something else that’s impossible to explain, but that’s totally okay—just because something can’t be explained doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.”
Leslie Margolis, Secrets at the Chocolate Mansion

“Chocolate is toxic for dogs. There’s a chemical in it called theobromine that humans can digest, but dogs can’t. In fact, too much could kill him.”
Leslie Margolis, Boys Are Dogs

“Don’t know.” Milo crumpled the schedule and tossed it in the trash. Then he bent down to pet a passing poodle that promptly bared his pointy white teeth and growled. “Sorry,” said the owner—a hipster in skinny jeans with a tattoo of a dragon on his neck and a bowler hat on his head. “He’s kind of a jerk sometimes. Don’t take it personally.” “I won’t,” Milo replied, standing up straight again. The jerky poodle reminded me of something, but I couldn’t remember what. Oh, wait—that’s it. Dog walking! “I’ve got to walk Nofarm this afternoon!” I said. “But it’s Saturday,” said Milo. “Don’t you take weekends off?” “Usually, but Nofarm’s family just moved, so they asked me for this special favor.”
