Snarky Candiru2

Tuesday, 25 November 2014

In today's part of the "John needs sleep" arc, Farley greets a sleeping John more enthusiastically than he'd like.

(Strip Number 4537, Original Publication Date, 26 November 1985)

Panel 1: For some reason, John's snoozing on the couch has attracted Farley's attention.

Panel 2: Farley continues to sit and stare at him because that's just what dogs do.

Panel 3: A bleary-eyed and confused John wakes up to see Farley's big nose in his face.

Panel 4: Farley responds to being noticed by giving a struggling John a big hug and licking his face.

Summary: I would have said this was a cute, slice-of-life strip were it not pretty much a certainty that Panel 5 would involve 'funny' animal abuse inflicted by a short-tempered git who hates being inconvenienced.
