In today's strip, Mike tells Lawrence that he doesn't understand why a harmless creature like Farley would get sick. Too bad that the punchline is predicated on Lynn's belief that dogs are filthy.

(Strip Number 468, Original Publication Date, 16 September 1983)

Panel 1: Lawrence asks Mike how Farley is. Mike doesn't know but does know that they had to leave him at the vet's office.

Panel 2: Lawrence asks if Farley got into a fight or something.

Panel 3: A shocked Mike tells Lawrence that Farley never fights; why, he wouldn't hurt a flea.

Panel 4: He does, however, collect them.

Summary: Gee, this is nice. Let's remind people that the author thinks that dogs are simply filthy and lazy and ridiculous. (As if the Lynnsight won't make that obvious.)
