Sometimes with a kid you have to be very specific.
At first, i was going to draw Blake in human clothes as a disguise as well. And then I realized that would be not make any sense. As much sense as a bear and vulture in clothes. It’s all perspective.
Ted’s outfit still makes me smile.
This was one of the first strips where I showed the deep blur in their lives between being animals with animal behaviors, and being cartoon characters who live very human lives as well.
Blake’s innocent “flaw” in logic still endears me and makes me laugh in this strip.
I also like dogs. Blake does comment that human ways are strange here, but he probably obeyed. I think dogs are confused by things that don’t make sense to them, but it doesn’t actually occur to them to question the will of the alpha.
Pop dog theory for you there this morning, folks!
I remember, when younger, almost the only food I had in the house was a pyramid stack of SpaghettiO’s. For lunch I’d take a can and a can-opener.
Healthier than cake, perhaps, but not much.
