(Strip Number 5126, Original Publication Date, 10 May 1989)
Panel 1: Since Elly actually isn't the best mother a dog could have, Mike has to tell her that Farley's chewed through the bandage she put on him and is limping rather severely. He wonders if they should do what they should have done from the start and take him to the vet.
Panel 2: Since he'd have to be physically dead to be taken to the vet (I know....SPOILERS!!), she is unsure about this expensive course of action because, while it's baffling that it's not healing, the wound doesn't look infected.
Panel 3: Doctor Elly asks Farley if he thinks they should wait until tomorrow.
Panel 4: As he licks her face, she gets all glum and wishes that he wasn't so trusting
Summary: I wish that she weren't so stupid and negligent; otherwise, he wouldn't be in pain....and wouldn't have drowned to make up for her recto-cranial loopback!
