Countess Phyllis della Faille de Leverghem, photographed in 1950 by Jack Bims, is shown in the bedroom of her villa in Morocco, reclining amidst her numerous chihuahuas, an afghan dog, and her parrots.

Phyllis was the American-born wife of a diplomat's son. This was a mere sampling of their pets. Running or flitting about the villa were 35 dogs, 37 cats, and 129 birds.
