Today, Farley is stupid because he doesn't immediately respond to Lizzie yelling sit at him.

(Strip Number 4599, Original Publication Date, 15 April 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Lizzie trying to train Farley to sit only to have the poor dog be baffled by the sounds she's making.

Panel 2: I find myself being fairly impressed by his calmness because in his place, I'd react aggressively to having some frustrated kid try to shove MY rump into the ground and babble SIT at me.

Panel 3: We have an awkward pause as Lizzie reconsiders the situation.

Panel 4: She then tells him "Farley...stand."

Summary: This, of course, heralds in another sequence in which Farley is declared to be a great big hairy goof with no brains because the alternative means that the Pattersons are terrible pet owners who don't know what they're doing. I can sort of buy a five year old not getting that a dog doesn't understand English but the rest of them? Not so much!
