These are MY dogs! No, really. Ralph lives a couple blocks away and he occasionally donates to charity the opportunity for your pet to be included in his strip and I won it during the live auction. They are named after the famous Thin Man series. However, the only crime they could solve is “missing food”. Nora is an English Springer Spaniel and Nick is a Brittany! If we get another dog, we will name him Asta! This was the best thing ever! Plus, I got to meet Ralph and he is so great. And I never get too old to read the strips!
