    No pony, but there are dogs big enough for her to ride on.

    Yes, get her a Great Pyrenese like Chiyo-Chan’s Mr. Tadakichi.

    Riding dogs isn’t the same though. Their backs are built differently from a horse or pony’s. Weta Workshop had to deal with that when they first animated orcs riding on wargs.

    I think your mom has a point.

    I’ve been thinking about it and I’ve changed my mind about getting Maria a Great Pyerese. Aside from needing a lot of room to run around, and needing a cold climate, it takes a lot of work raising a large dog and I don’t think Maria has the patients or attention span to take care of him. Maybe she should get a cat. They are low maintenance. Just feed and water them and they’ll take care of themselves (mostly).

    Maria had a goldfish, named Oro, who passed away early in the run of the strip.

    The dogs would have to be a different type. As large as horses and built for riders.

    Nice comic today. Some wishes shouldn’t be fulfilled.

    The guy who lands reindeer knows the pony will walk out on the road at the first opportunity, if the gate’s ajar. That’s what happens around here anyway.

    horses are not the greatest pet. maintenance is high. food cost is high. and, it takes a lot of training to bond with a horse.
