    Of course the world was black and white back in the day. We have photographic proof of it!

    Our Queensland Heeler (aka Blue Heeler or Australian Cattle Dog) Sadie was the best dog I ever had. Extremely intelligent, and also pretty sneaky. She could be a bit too aggressive sometimes, but mellowed with age. We bred her with a very nice but rather hyper working cattle dog, and the puppies turned out to be hyper and aggressive (but I was told they made good cowdogs – this was in Nevada). Anymore I see quite a few Heelers around and about, as pets. One can always tell if a dog is even part Heeler, since they all seem to have the “Bentley spot” on their forehead. One other thing about them that I really like is that (for those with tails) the end part of the tail is often ringed, like on a raccoon.

    My grandfather told me that when he was a kid (like 110+ years ago) the kids all sang it as “Bringing in the sheep”.

    The original question was valid. It’s certainly something that I wonder about.

    What bothers me is that the GOP could do so much better! Mitt Romney, John McCain, George W. Bush, Bob Dole, George H.W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan were all good men, regardless of what I thought of their policies, and I even voted for some of them.

    My Queensland Heeler would be very focused on the ball and would never fall for the “fake throw”, instead keeping her eyes on that tennis ball. However if I did do a fake throw, one ear would turn back in the direction the ball would have gone, and I always figured that she did this “just in case”.

    You’re right on that, of course. The real issue is that cartoon moons are never really drawn like they look in reality (but then, in the comics, not many things are). No big deal with the moon I guess, just a long-standing minor peeve I’ve had. As for how Kate’s house sits on the block, all I can tell from this is that her bedroom window generally faces east or southeast.

    I’m intrigued by the Royal residence of Frogmore Cottage (though it is hardly what most people would consider a “cottage”). I understand that there are LOTS of frogs around there (seriously), and it is where Queen Victoria and Prince Albert are interred.

    However the time in panel 2 is shown as 3:00 AM, so this cartoon moon is at least somewhat in the correct orientation.

    Cartoon moons are always in the crescent phase and always backwards (showing it as it would be in the pre-dawn hours rather than during the evening – as seen in the Northern Hemisphere, of course).

    Ah yes, puppies with their needle-sharp teeth hanging on our Dachshund’s ears. I remember it well, and I’m sure the Dachshund remembered it for a long time too. That goes for our Aussie puppy hanging on our Bull Terrier’s lip as well.
