(Strip Number 4905, Original Publication Date, 19 December 1987)
Panel 1: We find Mike on the back porch asking Farley if he wants to come in out of the the snow.
Panel 2: Just as Farley starts to shake himself dry, Mike tells him not to.
Panel 3: He guides Farley somewhere in such a manner that the dog is prevented from shaking.
Panel 4: Mike walks off with a smile on his face because Farley is shaking himself off right next to Lizzie.
Summary: This, of course, will lead to him BLAMING Lizzie for getting him in trouble by crying about it to Mom when she launches into an hour of self-pitying whining about how she has to be chained to the house instead of taking care of important things like making sure that John doesn't cheat with the lottagirls who wanna replace her.
