Man In The Dog Suit, The
Oliver is being groomed by his in-laws for a position in the family business: banking. Shy and ineffectual under ordinary circumstances, Oliver discovers that he can be bold and independent when wearing the dog costume he had acquired for a masquerade ball. Donning it on the proper occasions, he can even outface his in-laws. They, in turn, are appalled at the thought of Oliver's wearing the dog suit in public. When he wears it to work at the bank he's told he must choose between the dog suit and his job. To his delight, he discovers that his wife is as bored with their stuffy life as he is, and they suddenly decide to head for the great woods of Oregon, where Oliver can pursue his dream of being a tree surgeon. The in-laws are shocked, except for one: as Oliver leaves, his brother-in-law takes over the dog suit, and another hilarious rebellion is apparently on its way
written with William H. Wright (from A novel by Edwin Corle)
