    i think that everyone is missing the point. tethering dogs is cruel and illegal in many areas of the country. dog are pack animals, they need to be around human beings. go to dogs deserve better website and get educated.

    I’m not sure which folks you think don’t get the point. It seems to me Gil has done a fantastic job of gently illustrating the danger and cruelty of tethering a dog.

    I for one am eagerly anticipating Gil penning another all- American salute to the 4th tomorrow. If you miseed it, go back and check out his early celebration in the June 30th Sunday strip.


    Then again, I’m hoping he’ll pick up his guitar and post his rendition of the National Anthem or another patriotic number on nancyandsluggo.com.

    You must not have read any of the comments during this whole arc… you couldn’t have… we’ve been discussing that, as well as the dangers of approaching animals to rescue them, and as “Pogo” says, Guy has illustrated the point about the cruelty of leaving animals tied up like this well….
    ==
    But also, what about the fact that the owner may not have meant to be cruel in the first place, that maybe something unexpected happened… which goes into "Pogo"s point about how Guy gently and effectively illustrates this in a way that we do get the point…. to think about the consequences of this action, whether intended or not….

    And as proof I offer the comments of July 1, Monday….

    As I thought. Straight to Nancy. Don’t worry. Puppy dog won’t bite. The only question. What will he or she be named?

    “As I thought. Straight to Nancy”

    Could be true! Many possiblilities: puppy may just like Nancy… or could be indicative of the owner (perhaps male, whether nice or not so nice)…..or maybe if the owner was cruel, it has made the dog not like males… maybe… (I’d hope that wasn’t the case at all… for Sluggo’s sake) … some females or males do react this way towards the one gender or the other as part of their personality….some eventually do become more tolerant after a while….
    ==
    But don’t be too sure that the dog won’t bite… it’s the same way when you meet someone for the first time, like on a date, when you’re anxious, not sure how they feel… it takes time for both to feel comfortable…except we can reason on it, and dogs go with whatever emotion may dominate… unfortunately, that’s why some dogs get a bad rep, because even a lovable dog may take an action that it may not have, otherwise, all because of whatever emotion or instinctual stimulation was prevailing at the time… Hence Nancy still in the tree, and the dog being kept distracted by the sandwich in her hand….perhaps as a signal to the dog that “she’s not a threat or danger”….
