I love the idea of moon dogs marking their territory. (And yes, I do realize that he can’t pee outside his suit).
Also, I felt it was important that Dee’s anger, both at being lost and being so far from her parents, which comes out as punching.
I wanted to do a strip about Laika, especially since I was on the space them, although I knew nothing about her. So i read a bit and was so sad that it was the goal for her to survive in space… but was never the goal for her to survive return. So…. add a little pathos with your humor, right?
It was also super fun drawing Laika for panel 2.
The opportunities for euphemisms were so numerous… but kids are reading it too. :)
Hey, I posted a recipe blog about making Lemon Raspberry Chocolate Tarts over at Cookrookery. Check it out.
Happy 4th! I should be on a plane taking off around 9:00, window seat, so I’m VERY curious if I’ll see fireworks from above. Cross your fingers for clear weather!
In case you didn’t know, Acepromazine is one of the sedatives they give to dogs on the 4th of July because the fireworks are so loud for them. I truly feel sad for them, it must be very frightening.
It’s true, what’s the fun of a disaster if you don’t get to scream a little?
Oh, and it was fun creating that lightning.
