Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 14 February 2012

In today's strip, we get to the point of the arc when Elly, who thought-bubbled what a comfort Farley's presence was, chastises him for leaping up on her out of fright.

(Strip Number 4299, Original Publication Date 15 February 1983)

Panel 1: Elly motions for Farley to come over and lie next to the bed like a good dog.

Panel 2: She smiles as she thought-bubbles about how dogs are a great comfort when one is nervous; there's nothing like a brave, faithful, protective....

Panel 3: Suddenly, both of them are startled by a thudding noise.

Panel 4: Since Farley is on top of her and clearly terrified, Elly yells for the dumb lump to get off of her.

Summary: Elly is pretty pissed that Farley isn't the brave defender he's "supposed" to be. Then again, Elly never really understood that she needed to train him to be fearless or that he can hear noises she can't.
