    I saw where this was going from the second panel. I guess Stephan feels a need to do something “nice” once in a while.

    That worked out well.

    But I’m sure veteran readers caught it by the second panel.

    I got my little guy (a mutt – the best kind!) a little over two years ago, most fulfilling relationship I’ve had ever! If he were any sweeter I would need insulin, lol!

    Puppy Love. A love that won’t end up leaving you deserted in a woven basket on Rat & Pig’s front door stoop.

    What he describes is how everyone should be… but very few people are. If everyone on Earth had these qualities, we would solve not only war, crime and violence… but also hunger and poverty.

    I wonder if the dog could be a new recurring character and would they be anthropomorphic or silent.

    Two days ago I saw someone’s dog in the front yard, behind a four-foot fence. This dog didn’t want to bark me away but desperately wanted attention. I petted and scratched for a minute, but he still objected when I walked away. I was afraid the owner would look at me out the window, but that never happened. The dog also doesn’t have a collar. Hope he doesn’t run away, but I hope something improves.
