Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 16 June 2009

We're obviously in for more of Elly's being in despair because this world of small ones who demand attention fills her with despair; the Saturday strip will feature John's smug refusal to see that his wife can't handle any sort of pressure.

Perhaps tomorrow: right now, Mike has to fail to treat Farley properly.

Panel 1: We start off with Mike pushing down on Farley's rump and saying "Sit, Farley, sit, Farley, sit, Farley, SIT!!"

Panel 2: As he continues to do so, we see that Farley doesn't like this at all.

Panel 3: He thus gives Mike a bit of a shock by barking at him.

Panel 4: As Farley saunters off to where people aren't yelling at him and pushing down on his rump, Mike sits and stares.

Summary: This might well be the start of their failed attempt to train Farley. What I took away from that arc in the original version was that the dog was a willing student whose training was subverted by the idiots that owned him.
