Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for June 24, 1999
Nate: Mr. Eustis, we're doing a survey! Do you think dogs are smarter than cats? Yes or no? Mr. Eustis: Hmm, that's tough to say... But myself, I'm definitely a dog man! I've always owned dogs! Mr. Eustis: Have you ever met Spitsy? Spitsy! Here, boy! Francis: Behold the canine Einstein. Mr. Eustis: If he doesn't wear that collar, he'll chew his own paws off!
