So far, a pattern has emerged for the week: Elly sucking at training Farley because she's so dumb, she can't (as jospehusrex said) tell piss from apple juice. I'd like to think that Lynn would get to "Mike is far too affectionate with Farley for the puppy's good" this week but a point needs to be hammered into the ground.

It's the reprint that has Elly standing outside in a housecoat shivering and yelling GO!!!!! at Farley because he's taking his time urinating.

Panel 1: We see Elly in her housecoat standing on the porch on a cold morning shivering as Farley sniffs the ground looking for a place to go pee.

Panel 2: As the poor little fellow tries to find somewhere to pee, we are shown a closeup of Elly: she's grown frustrated with waiting because she's too stupid to understand canine behavior.

Panel 3: So frustrated, in fact, that she yells "GO!!!!!!" at him. This causes the poor little guy to jump in the air and possibly void his bladder out of sheer panic.

Again, this is not how to housetrain a puppy. This is how to be a stupid pet owner because all you do is unnecessarily frighten him. Sadly, we know that Elly's impatience ends up turning what could have been a really great dog into a shaggy, lumbering annoyance so any humor is lost.
