Amen to that – I adopted the same attitude when I retired.
As an ex-Gunner, can I second that?
Yep – when I first put in a doggie door, my male Border Collie was fine with it, but my female Lab was very suspicious and just sniffed at it. When she did deign to try it, she tried to follow the Border Collie through, but mis-timed it and the flap swung back and bopped her on the nose. That did it! She wanted nothing to do with the infernal contraption. I ended up having to strap the flap up so she could come and go sans swinging flap and then gradually re-introduce it. It took a couple of weeks for her to work out the timing and realise the flap wasn’t out to get her (or her nose).Memories… both dogs now sadly deceased, but the doggie door is still there… maybe one day…
Ain’t that the truth!
I’d vote for “road lice”.
Uhuh… Lemme guess… No-one survived?
Whoisit? Doesn’t matter – the whole point of the exercise is to get someone – anyone – in there in order to encourage (discourage?) the others.
Well yes… but wouldn’t the penicillin in the mo(u)ld then cure itself? … My head hurts…
Yep – been there, done that. In my case it was a full box (2,000 cards) and they weren’t sequenced. (COBOL compile.) Memories…
Nope and nope. Check the original publication date in the first panel – 12-25-61 – this is a Christmas day strip.
