Elly makes me want to post that Cracked article today about how people are accidentally screwing up their dog; that's because she yells at Farley for making her worried.

(Strip Number 4194, Original Publication Date, 30 June 1982)

Panel 1: Mere seconds after everyone else goes to bed, Elly gets my hackles up by grabbing Farley by the scruff of the neck and telling him he's a bad dog for running away.

Panel 2: She then confuses the poor, uncomprehending animal by exhorting him to look at himself because he's filthy; since she's an idiot who will not be told how dogs behave, she confuses his deference posture with an admission of error.

Panel 3: She then marches him to the garage she's telling him he's going to sleep in until the morning when he'll be bathed.

Panel 4: She really gets me cheesed off by telling him that if he were anyone else, she'd demand the apology she's pretty much demanding now.

Summary: Since Elly is an idiot, she doesn't know that it's far too late to correct Farley's behavior now; the window of opportunity slammed shut on her fingers about the time she was snarling "Men"; also, it ain't his fault she's a negligent idiot any more than it was any part of a conspiracy to destroy her happiness when her family does dumb things by accident because they're dumb people who are as heedless as she is.
