On The Whole, the Bark is Better
You see a bunch of harem girls (technically known as a 'lounge') sitting in a circle around something, cooing excitedly. You sneak around until you can see what they're looking at.
There's a harem girl in the middle of the circle, holding an oversized handbag. As you watch, some sort of hideous creature pokes its head out of the bag and barks. It has a domed forehead, bulging eyes, a lolling tongue, and is twitching non-stop.
You draw a nearby veil over your head for disguise and say "my goodness, what is that thing?"
"It's a new breed of dog from Distant Lands," the dog's owner replies. "Isn't he adorable? He's a certified purebred, so his tongue is a little too big for his mouth and he's a little high-strung. But isn't he fabulous? You want to hold him? His name's Annihilator."
You pick up the twitchy, inbred thing and pretend it doesn't repulse you to the core of your being. You chat moxiously with the harem girls until the damn thing bites you. You put it down and make your getaway.

(duration: 10 Adventures)
- The adventure name is a reference to the idiom saying that a dog's bark is worse than its bite. It's apparently incorrect in this case.
- "Harem" and "lounge" may be an in-joke about two exclusive in-game chat channels of the same name.
- The description of the dog is clearly making fun of the bizarre and inexplicable trendiness of chihuahuas.
