(Strip Number 4242, Original Publication Date, 11 October 1982)
Panel 1: We start the week off watching Mike listen to the radio; as he stares at it, a newscaster talks about how a robbery was prevented on McVeigh Avenue that morning when the owner's dog barked a warning.
Panel 2: Mike then asks Elly if she thinks that a robber would be scared of Farley.
Panel 3: We then watch Farley raise a cloud of dust and Patterdander as he scratches himself.
Panel 4: Having watched him do so and remembering how stunned the dog acts most of the time, Elly says that the only reason a burglar would be frightened of Farley is if he had allergies.
Summary: The strange, sad thing is that Lynn passed up a chance to inform her American readers about our Thanksgiving so that she could dedicate a week to showing us that selfish John declared psychological warfare on Elly by forcing her to care for a shaggy nitwit of a dog.
