This was the very first Dogma sub-strip to appear, and it was indeed inspired by this very thing. Our Shepherd could not walk past a stain on the asphalt road without stopping to smell what it was. If we noticed before she did, unlikely as that may be, we would try to keep her away; god only knows what it was. Anyway, it wound being a whole new creative outlet. I actually hate the artwork in this particular strip. It didn’t turn out anything like I saw it in my head.
