Spanish term or phrase: furria
Now the main characters are at a bar, propping up the bar, greeting people as they come and go from the dancefloor.

Vigilando el lugar de avituallamiento, la placenta de la Gran Zorra. Ahora llega un acalorado Jozemi —Jozemi «perro loco», la jodida HONESTIDAD en persona— y un, aún más acalorado, Dick Jordan —«¿Qué pasa furria?»— y un extasiado Charles Smallball.

agree  Marcelo González: Since they mention that D. Jordan is "acalorado," the question about "fury" makes sense, i.e., what's up fury?

Está exagerando la "r" a propósito para darle un toque cómico. Algo así como ¡Que pashhha!

Notes to answerer
Asker: That´s certainly a possibility, I agree, though I think that I would have to add another "r", as "furry" would then be "peludo"!!

Asker: I´m so thick sometimes! You have thought of that already! Apologies. :D
