Hello Everybody! Autumn the Puppy here!
And I've dug up some interesting information about dogs in the comics!
Did you know that the Tribune Media Services is ending the (Little Orphan) Annie comic strip on June 13 with a cliffhanger? Apparently she is only in about 20 newspapers right now, hence the cancellation, although the Tribune stresses that they are NOT killing off Annie, and hope to bring her back somewhere soon.
Okay. That's good for the little red haired girl, but what about SANDY?
That faithful canine has been with her for the entire 85 year run of the series, and not one report about the cancellation I've read ever mentioned him!
Whenever Annie returns, Sandy has to come back also!
Meanwhile, that 'great' dane Marmaduke is getting his own movie, due in theatres June 5th. At least us dogs are making some progress. That dang cat Garfield has been all over the place in the past couple of decades, and for better or worse the Underdog movie bombed at the box office, so it's about time us canines got a break. We've been getting the short end of the stick ever since Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang decided to take a well earned break.
Of course there's still (Red and) Rover, Buckles, Sarge's Otto from Beetle Bailey, Dennis the Menace's Ruff, and a few others. Yet Snoopy was definitely top dog.
But now, to prove I've totally haven't lost my sense of humor, here are a few canine based jokes.
How come, if dogs have to have a license, we can't drive?
What do you call a beagle in an igloo? A chilly dog!
I find it insulting when a human says they're 'as sick as a dog'. How would you like it if I took you to the doctor and they stuck a thermometer where it's not supposed to go!
Well, that's all the space I have for this weekend.
Don't go barking up the wrong tree. Think twice before you decide to chase a car or go after the mail carrier, and be back next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!
