Do not adjust your eyes, this strip really is a little on the gray side. If memory serves I had just bought a new scanner, wasn’t familiar with the software and up against a deadline. It’s been four years now, I should get around to cleaning it up some day. Maybe tomorrow. Anyway, this one is based on real events and the adventures of our over-eating pug.
For as smart as we think we are, it’s a rare day indeed when parents can sneak something into a kid’s diet. They can ignorantly walk by an overflowing basket of laundry to be folded, or a crying dog standing at the door, but put an onion or anything green on to a pizza and alarms are going off all over town. Yes, I was a kid once, and admittedly I was probably THE pickiest eater on the entire planet, but that doesn’t make it any easier to understand now.
Every morning my dogs watch me scoop their dry food out of the same container and put it down for them to eat. Wallace, the pug, wastes no time and inhales his like a vacuum cleaner. Mindy, the Shepherd can eat right away. She’s very concerned about what Wallace has. Why? Who, outside of Cesar Millan and StanleyCoren can explain why they do what they do.
Anyway, this was my play on the “grass is always greener” cliche, if dogs had cliches.
