A sequel, The Starlight Barking , continues from the end of the first novel. At a dinner party attended by the Dearly couple, Cruella de Vil expresses her dislike for animals; subsequently, the couple's new Dalmatian puppies disappear. The Dearly dogs are now among 97 puppies who were kidnapped or legally purchased from various owners, with the intention of skinning them for their fur. Through the co-operation of animals and the " Twilight barking ", the dogs are found in Suffolk , England, and a rescue ensues. Pongo and Missis are a pair of Dalmatians who live with the newly married Mr. Dearly and their two nannies, Nanny Cook and Nanny Butler. Dearly is a "financial wizard" who has been granted lifelong tax exemption and lent a house on the Outer Circle in Regent's Park in return for wiping out the government debt.
