Someone posted this cartoon on their Facebook page and it made my day. A dog complaining to a human therapist about her owner pretending to throw the ball just to make the dog look like an idiot was hysterical. I found it funny enough to go to the website printed on the cartoon and I discovered Mark Anderson’s Andertoons. He has dozens of topics, but I especially like his dog and cat cartoons.
I have always loved cartoons and comics featuring animals. I adore Brian Basset’s Red and Rover about a 10 year old boy and his dog. Hilary Price puts some very human attributes on animals in some of her Rhymes with Orange panels. Years ago, I had cut out one and kept it at my desk at work (of course I can’t find it now to scan and share it with everyone or find a link to it online) but it had two dogs nose to nose on their belly and one dog was saying, “last night I dreamed we were rolling around in dog poop in your backyard, but it wasn’t really your backyard.” I laughed at that for years; it always seems whenever someone talks about places in their dreams, they are different from those same places in real life and it is so funny to see dogs acting the same way.
When I was a kid, I loved Underdog and Scooby Doo, but my favorite was Precious Pupp who lived with his Granny Sweet. Precious had a great wheezy laugh. I also watched every single incarnation ever made of Lassie. Sometimes when Dudley was excited about something or trying to coax me into going for a walk, I’d ask him if Timmy was in the well. What are your favorite animal comics or cartoons? Anyone who comments on this blog will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card to Target or Amazon, winner’s choice. I’ll let this contest go for about 4 weeks and have the drawing on March 24th. I might even count comments on all blogs for additional chances to win the gift card.
