Elly might feel sorry for Farley but not so sorry that she wants dog hair all over her furniture.

(Strip Number 6040, Original Publication Date, 29 November 1986)

Panel 1: We find Elly on the phone to Marian telling her about Farley's health problems and how they'll have to watch him.

Panel 2: As she frets about how he might be in pain, something untoward catches her attention.

Panel 3: Said violation of all that's good and holy is resolved when she yells at him for sleeping on the couch.

Panel 4: As Farley staggers from her verbal assault, Elly reminds herself that sympathy only goes so far.

Summary: This is par for the course, folks. Elly wants things just so and, as we'll see Monday, this whole business is going to be chalked up to Farley being a shambling, untrainable imbecile.
