Pampering My Cute Pet

Description

Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

There’s nothing that Yu Wan has in common with her new neighbor– whether it’s charisma, personality, or cooking skills– other than that they both own dogs. Their two cute pets get along well (a bit far too well) and start what seems like a rocky friendship between the two; however, Yu Wan has more important things to worry about. Her wildly popular novel is about to take off into a drama adaptation, but the handsome, mysterious, and callous neighbor- is the director?!

[Reporter: I’ve heard that you really like raising pets, Director Shen. You have two of them, right?

Shen Qingzhou (as he thinks of someone): I’d say three. ]

Hi! I'm Serra, the translator for this series.

This is a wonderful little novel. I'll list some pros and cons below:

PROS:

  • Short novel = more straightforward and no-nonsense plot. In my previous projects, there were multiple instances where the author liked to stray off-- possibly because they wanted to meet some word count quota. In PCP, however, there's none of that. There's too many detailed story events and not enough chapters for the author to blabber about something completely unrelated to the novel. Keep in mind that this does not mean there are no "cute" or "fluffy" moments in the novel (there's more of that than I could ever count) . It's just that there aren't times where the author goes off in rants about wages in China or something.
  • No timeskips. No flashbacks without warning.
  • EXTREMELY CUTE. If you love little doggos and stuff, you would love this story. The dogs are only really really important in the first third or so of the novel, but they definitely still keep a strong presence in the rest.
  • Since there are only 59 chapters, it won't take me a terribly long time to finish this.
CONS:

  • I believe this will only be regarded as a con for some people (definitely not all), but there is no antagonist in this series. The author uses mishaps such as events, misunderstandings, and (plausible) coincidences to stir worry in the reader. There's only one character who comes close to the antag role, but the reason for that is mostly just because she has feelings for the ML too. She never actually tries to mess anything up. If you're one of those people who prefer having specific characters to focus and hate on, maybe this novel isn't for you.
  • Some people are really nitpicky about the "plausibility" of stories. They don't like the idea of "coincidence". The biggest "improbability" in this story is its premise, where the ML not only moves in directly across of the FL, their dogs are also the same breed and the ML is the director of the drama adaptation of the FL's novel. To the people who think that these three events are ridiculous to happen at the same time, I say this: The point of fiction is that it's not real, and that's why it's fun. People read to have fun, not stress about how "this will never happen."

Finished the whole novel at one go. The story is really fluffy and cute. There's no drama other than the paparazzi tailing them and netizens exposing their lovey-dovey private lives constantly (in a way that ultimately benefit the characters), everything is smooth-sailing with zero conflicts. I really enjoyed the main leads' banter and interaction + they are totally devoted to each other from the beginning. Some things I felt was a pity (spoilers) :

... more>>
Spoiler

1. The lack of in-depth backstory of the characters before they met (eg. How did they come into their current career) The male lead is cold and unbothered which really makes me curious why did he enter and how did he survive in the film/ent industry.
2. The rushed ending (pregnancy, proposal, before wedding ceremony). I was hoping the writer would narrate the wedding ceremony scene and the feelings of the characters.

3. How did the supporting lead (protagonist's brother) suddenly fall in love/discover that his feelings for the childhood friend was actually romantic in nature after decades of not realising it. If he is so obtuse, how did he survive in the entertainment industry? The development felt too forced and superficial (he felt possessive seeing his friend woo her and then did the same).
4. The novel briefly mentioned that the famed actress following the male lead was in fact his deceased brother's ex-girlfriend. She dated his brother to get a connection with the male lead. Why not elaborate more on how the brother's death affected the male lead? It seemed like it was mentioned just to excuse the actress away from the story.

[collapse]

Great for readers who like fluff rom-com/a quick, fun read. Look elsewhere if you are looking for realistic romance stories. One thing I couldn't get over was how the male lead who is reputed to have strict work ethics would dump his work aside or announce filming breaks whenever the female lead/relatives come to visit. And how he NG-ed the male actor who invited the female lead out for drinks as a friendly gesture endlessly- while the author meant it to be a cute way to express jealousy, I see it as utterly unprofessional which slaps the "strong work ethics" out of the way. <<less

Finished reading this in less than a day. Really cute. The male lead is so tsundere cute. A very easy to read novel. There's not too much drama.

The story starts off with MC and ML's dogs falling for each other. Then MC integrates herself into ML's life by being his "hired" cook. ML is really indifferent and cold in the beginning but eventually he warms up to her and falls for MC. MC is pretty cute. The best thing about MC is that she doesn't cling to ML and become... more>> the embodiment of that annoying female lead who'll just throw herself at the male lead. She let their relationship develop naturally which is really nice.

Really recommend reading if you're into the cute, no angst, no drama novels. <<less

The translation quality is very good and the story is amusing and cute. However, I suspect the translator released the first five chapters to get readers interested and won't be releasing more unless he/she gets donations. Freeloaders like me will be disappointed.

Plot summary without actual spoilers:

Yu Wan has a secret identity as a (web novel?) author. She keeps a dog. Her neighbor is the male lead, Shen Qingzhou, and he keeps a dog of the same type but opposite gender. Due to various events the dogs end up pulling the... more>> two of them together. It is setting up for Yu Wan and Shen Qingzhou meeting due to work reasons as well as her novel is being adapted to a movie. I suspect Shen Qingzhou will be directing this movie. <<less
