It's October! We're enjoying watching the leaves change in our area; we really do have beautiful Autumns in this part of Canada and our beloved maple trees really contribute to the beauty of the season. This month's featured photo is a shot of Corbeil from the air!

Colour Strips and colour commentary! We've started running the daily strips on our site in colour, thanks to the nice folks at Universal Press Syndicate who are now piping in the content direct from the desks of their talented colorists. Lynn has also started contributing daily info tidbits that we're posting underneath each strip - check in each day to read Lynn's remarks and reminiscences! Find the daily strip here!

Something Old, Something New is coming very soon! Everyone at the studio has been scrambling to get the finishing touches ready, and the book's on the presses right now destined for delivery this fall. Check out our News Bites page to learn more about the book. Something Old, Something New features storylines from the strip's first three cartoon collections- I've Got the One-More-Washload Blues..., Is This "One of Those Days," Daddy?, and "It Must Be Nice to Be Little"--with entirely new cartoons and full-color Sundays. We'll be offering them signed from Lynn's shop!

October is Farley Month: The Farley Foundation is a charitable organization that subsidizes non-elective medical care for pets of seniors receiving the Federal Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) and persons with disabilities receiving the Ontario Disability Support Payment (ODSP) or the Federal CPP Disability Benefit. Every October is Fundraise for Farley month, and every October Lynn donates $3 from every copy of Remembering Farley purchased through our store. You can get your autographed copy of Remembering Farley here! Learn more about the Foundation here.

Farley Foundation Fun: Want to WIN a plush Farley and a copy of the Remembering Farley book? Write us a poem! A limerick, to be exact, on the subject of dogs. We'll post the entries and the winning limerick on our site, and the lucky winner will receive his or her own cuddly Farley toy. Send your entries to us by the end of October!

2011 Wall Calendars are here! We managed to obtain a very limited number of calendars for 2011, so please order yours early to avoid being disappointed. You can get yours here.

Lynn recently drew the last of the new For Better or For Worse Sunday strips. It ran on July 11th. To document this milestone, a friend filmed her as she drew the strip and then Lynn's son Aaron edited the video - check it out here on our new YouTube channel, where we'll be posting more video soon!

2011 Wall Calendars are now available.

Plush Farley! Everyone who's emailed us about Farley has loved him! Get yours today.

Treasury editions of Lynn's strips are in the works. We'll share updates as we get more information.
