    I think Farley obeyed you, John, because he got scared of your anger.

    That, plus it’s a canine instinct to obey the alpha dog, which is how all dogs see their owners.

    @Gweedo MurrayDo you get the humor in life? John is like many guys, good days and bad days.

    I never did see how either Elly or John could make it after a year or so.

    Seems like not much has changed…and yes, it would be nice to be listened to sometimes!

    Lynn’s Notes:

    Here is another strip that got me into hot water. Readers thought John had actually KICKED the dog in panel two! What I had tried to show was John putting his foot under Farley’s rump and moving him. I would never have shown someone kicking a dog! This taught me to never draw an action unless I could draw it well!

    John is in babysitting mode, Elly is still at the gym and the kids are pushing to see how far they can get!

    A guess a lot of these commenters have never experienced the “joy” of kids who will not stay in bed. They could make Mr. Rogers lose his temper.

    I’m glad he didn’t kick him. I can understand the frustration. Sometimes I tell my cats to get out of my way.

    And we NEVER see Elly yelling at the kids. Ever! At least not in the past 24 hours.

    Hello, NSPCA? After screaming at the kids, (got the recieving end of that.) and scotting the dog along, who would want to love John. He reminds me of my so-called father…I hated his guts!

    When parents just want to get rid of the kids and then force them to bed at an early hour, the kids are going to get back up and raise Cain.Parents that do that sort of thing are not parenting.

    No he isn’t kicking the dog. See Lynn’s notes posted by a couple other users above.

    I guess some people forget that it takes 2 to make a marriage work. And 2 to break a marriage! No one is perfect!

    Is he kicking Farley? Oh, wait, I see from the notes that he isn’t, but it sure looks like it.

    just because he pays the bills does not mean he is not an idiot.

    @loves, yeah it’s going way too far. It’s not Farleys fault that the kids aren’t going to bed.
