Snarky Candiru2

Wednesday, 19 November 2008

So far this week, we've seen two examples of Lizzie being messy and repelling people. I'm sensing a general theme here so I should think that today's strip is going to rotate around how Elly has an easier time handling Farley the Wonder Dog than Lizardbreath.

Ah. She's introducing the obedience school arc.

Panel 1: We see Elly reading from a manual titled "Dog Training" as Lizzie plays with the puppy. So far she's reading the chapter titles: "distancing your puppy from unwanted behavior, paper training, introducing the leash, reading the guidebook before you do all that..."

Panel 2: As she notes that grooming and obedience training for the young dog are also covered, Mike shows up looking to play with the dog (thereby setting up the punchline).

Panel 3: As Mike and Lizzie fight over who gets to play with the puppy they're stupidly pulling apart, a freaked-out Elly says to herself that the poor animal has to survive basic care and feeding first.

Summary: Mike thinks Farley is a living playtoy he can maul at will, LOL. Also, Elly is a criminally inept mother and pet owner, ROFLMAO.

ETA: There's a new banner up called Family Firsts. I'm hoping for a "first" wherein Elly pays attention to what's important.
