We should probably expect another reprint that has Elly failing to train Farley properly today. What's more, Lynn plans to imply that Elly's doing it by herself so as to increase her martyrdom quotient.

Well, it's not a reprint but Elly does nail herself to her cross.

Panel 1: Elly whines to Connie that she's not complaining BUT she just finds it hard to toilet train two teething babies at the same time.

Panel 2: Connie reminds her that she said that having a puppy would be a lot of work and that she said that she wanted to get out of the house.

Panel 3: Elly replies that she does get out of the house.

Panel 4: Several times, in fact; this is because she's been retconned into actually walking Farley instead of standing on the porch while he goes.

Summary: Yesterday's strip is now a rare exception to a rule. Let's see how many other commonplace things from the real 1980's are now described as being anomalies.
