(Strip Number 785, Original Publication Date, 16 January 1985)
Panel 1: Having arrived at the Animal Shelter, Elly is vaguely disturbed to be told that the reason Farley got picked up is that he meets the criteria for a stray dog: running around at large without a license.
Panel 2: Tim at Animal Control tells her that she's just lucky that he talked the guy who narked on Farley out of adding in willful damage to private property.
Panel 3: Dim Elly asks what family-hating, dog-informing-on monster neighbor would do that to poor he....Farley.
Panel 4: Tim exits the strip by telling her to talk to the man with the snow sculpture.
Summary: Heh. Elly should consider herself lucky she didn't have more people showing up trying to make her deal with a canine paternity suit.
