    So it IS a dog!

    I don’t think Lucky the cat will take this news well.

    First Sluggo gets a new dog, and now Slim. That’s a pretty fancy name for a hound.

    “A Doberman Pinscher (Kleine) and a Great Dane (Sieg) comically shared Slim and Clovia’s already too-small apartment.”

    Giacomo is a great name for an active dog.

    So the dog has just been sitting on the other side of the door? Very well trained dog.

    I was about to mention that it’s been a long time since the Skinners had a large dog living with them in that tiny apartment!

    Danny Kaye! I loved his humor.

    I stopped reading the strip when it became rather, in my opinion, silly with the plant doctor.

    I take it Gretchen is Slm and Clovia’s actual daughter, and Rover is the adopted sun – did his no good mother ever appear in the strip again – who did she marry?

    Rover was born about 1978. His birth parents are Beulah and Gus Bump. They had raised him as a dog. He was Clovia’s and Slim’s foster child from Apr. 20, 1981, to Dec. 1, 1983, when they adopted him. http://www.roverdramawerks.com/06_PastShows/gal_FamousR/gal_img/roverbump.gif Gretchen was born to Clovia and Slim on Apr. 13, 1978. Here is a family vignette from Christmas 1981: http://www.comicartfans.com/gallerypiece.asp?piece=264231

    “And an unemployed jester
    Is nobody’s fool.”

    Rather ironic about Basil Rathbone, Danny’s foil in that movie (no pun intended). He was quite possibly the greatest fencer in Hollywood history, but always lost his on-screen matches because he was almost always the villain. The one hero I ever saw him play was described in the original literary source as an excellent fencer, but never had the opportunity in Rathbone’s films. That fell to Nicol Williamson in “The Seven Per-Cent Solution”.
