Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 13 April 2015

We begin the Pattersons' latest attempt to train Farley only to throw their hands in the air and give up on the "stupid" dog at the first setback with Lizzie inconveniencing Elly because she wants the dog to feel included.

(Strip Number 1036, Original Publication Date, 14 April 1986)

Panel 1: We start things off watching Lizzie pour herself a bowl of the Nootra-Bran that Elly loves because it's not full of sugar.

Panel 2: For some reason, she's decided to eat on the floor beside Farley.

Panel 3: When Elly walks in, both child and dog look up at her.

Panel 4: Elly rolls her eyes in irritation when Lizzie explains that she thought Farley might be tired of eating alone.

Summary: While this could plausibly happen, it usually doesn't because the dog decides that he's going to want what's in the kid's bowl. About the only good thing is that Ursula's disagreement with animals in the house on purpose means that we're spared having to endure an episode of the Little Lindy Show.
