Time to get out a plastic baggy, Lyman, as well as sanitation spray for the floor.
I don’t believe anybody would dare showing. a character beating and choking is dog in a comic strip nowadays. PETA will chew them on the spot!!
OK, that’s it….. Lyman you’re banned.
When my dog ever goes in the house, we toss him outside.Also, Jim Davis was going to name Odie Spot, but didn’t after learning there was a Spot in a different strip.
2 words: Nature’s Miracle.
I guess Odie’s learned his lesson.
A bit of meta humor in that last panel, since Spot was going to be Odie’s name.
1978, times have changed.
If you beat him he’ll just learn to distrust you. I’d tell him bad dog but that’s about it. I don’t understand people beating an animal and rubbing their nose in it.
Best punishment I’ve found is the tone of my voice. If you put as much disgust/anger into your voice as possible, the dogs will pick up on that at once, and since they want your approval (you are, presumably, pack leader to them) it gets the point across very nicely. On the other hand, if you use a happy, cheerful voice you can call them the most horrific things and have them love it!
Best method (I’ve found)…… if the dog messes inside say “bad dog”, then scoop up the (solid) mess and take it and the dog outside and place the mess in the appropriate place, let the dog sniff, then praise him or her. For liquid mess, it’s just a case of punishment and praise (not physical punishment).
Really people? You’re going to get offended by what happens to a fictional character in a comic strip. This is why humor is dying.
Hitting a dog with a rolled-up newspaper does not hurt him. It’s mostly the sound they don’t like.
No wonder he disappeared Political correct jail.
under “NO” circumstances do you EVER beat or choke an animal!
