(Strip Number 466, Original Publication Date, 14 September 1983)
Panel 1: As John loads Farley into the station wagon, Mike asks Elly where they're taking him. Elly says that they're going to the vet.
Panel 2: Mike notices that Farley looks awful sick and asks if he's gonna die.
Panel 3: Elly tells him that that's not a nice thing to say.
Panel 4: Mike says that he had to say it because he was thinking it.
Summary: Well, I should think that more people would write letters about pets that scared them by being awful sick. That's because not even Inman could get behind being told "Ha-ha!! I fooled you!! He's going to be okay!!"
