Pimm’s Marmalade Bangers and Mash Klein is a very English Springer Spaniel. The model for Plato’s Noble Hound/ Philosopher-King in The Republic, he is fiercely brave in the face of squirrels, birds, and all things that squeak, with the gentle soul and general demeanor of a Sesame Street Muppet.

When not helping Professor Klein with her grading, he enjoys mystery novels, space-trivia, and belly rubs.
