Write the character sketch of Mrs Pumphery.

Mrs Pumphrey was a rich woman who doted on her dog Tricki. She pampered him silly and overfeeds him. He gets no exercise, is overfed and overweight. Mrs Pumphrey is representative of women who, for lack of anything better to do, end up doing more harm than good by being over-indulgent. She is not vile or means any harm, but also does not utilise her money in constructive avenues. She sends eggs, whiskey and brandy as food for Tricki when he is being treated by the vet. She does show generosity, but it is used only to pump the dog with treats.
