The one where Liz is confused by Farley's attempts to keep cool.

(Original Publication Date, 14 July 1991)

Panel 1: We start things off with a very hot Farley digging a hole where Elly puts her bedding plants.

Panel 2: When he lies down and sighs in relief like a human being, it would seem that he did so to somehow beat the heat.

Panel 3: The strip proper begins with Farley being awoken by Liz setting up the kiddie pool.

Panel 4: As Liz goes back to the house, she doesn't notice that Farley is staring at the pool.

Panel 5: It would seem that some idiot forgot to fill his water dish because he drinks the pool water.

Panel 6: As he does so, he starts to walk into the pool.

Panel 7: Now, he's completely in the pool as he drinks up.

Panel 8: A few minutes later, we find Liz holding April looking gobsmacked because she doesn't understand why Farley is laying down in the pool.

Summary: There are an awful lot of things wrong with this one and most of them are about animal neglect.
