My family and some of our friends enjoy kayaking. Not white-water, just lake or lazy river. When I first got Curtis E., my dog, I tried taking him kayaking and he was too large to fit in a single kayak. I even tried putting him on my daughter's sit-on-top kayak. It was a failure too. Oh well, I tried.
The cartoon depicts why I won't buy a double kayak. It just isn't a good idea. I hate group projects too.
This is for my daughter's friend, Jenna. Enjoy!
My dog, Curtis E. LeMay, and I have an evening tradition of making and eating peanut butter sammiches. I cut off the crust for him, since I don't like it, and I eat the center. He gets irritable if he misses his evening treat.
My wife was concerned about referencing terrorism in the strip, but I felt it is a part of our culture now. It has been for a long time. I am not making fun of it by any means. It, like so many other things, have been added to our culture and my mentioning it, I hope, is not upsetting to anyone in this context.
My real dog, Curtis E. LeMay, actually does this to my wife. She is not a dog person and I think Curtis E. knows it. Although I did not teach him to do this, it is awfully funny. Enjoy!
This is not a slam on women drivers. Unfortunately, I used to ride with a female friend who sped up to stop. I could not look out the front window of the car when I was in the passenger seat.
I survived, but not totally unscathed. Oh well. Enjoy!
November 11th, 2014
Yes, it has been a long time since I posted a new strip. Sorry. I have just finished the move into our new home, left a bad job, and submitted this strip to Creators Syndicate, Inc. Please keep me in your prayers. Now I will be posting twice again regularly.
This strip echoes an experience I had as a child. I can still see "IT" in my mind. Oh well. Enjoy!
I Wish I Would Not Have Said That!
Yes, it has been some time since I posted a new strip. My apologies. I have recently taken a new job and we are getting ready to close on the house we are having built. All exciting, but taking me away from my Dog House.
As for this strip, haven't we all been there? Saying something that we wish we wouldn't have.
Some how this idea struck me as funny one day. Being an avid Calvin and Hobbes reader I couldn't help but think about Calvin and his bath nonsense. This is my version os having fun in the tub is like.
This is also in honor of my step-son, Ross. He was a submariner, now he is on a surface ship. As he put it, "A Target."
The Price We Pay
If you're a parent, or perhaps have been a babysitter, you know the humiliating situations you have had to endure. In my case it was playing "Pretty, Pretty Princess" with my daughter, Kelsey. Don't get me wrong, I loved spending time with her, but it seemed like I always won thus having to put on all the garb of a princess.
I can only imagine it is going to happen again when I am a grandpa. Oh well. Life is good. Enjoy!
I've always thought it was funny that people had lit candles in their bathrooms. So I thought it would be funny to have Arther show it wasn't always a good idea to keep them lit.
Driving Like Granny
My kids always tease me about driving like an old person. It was only fitting that I create this cartoon. Enjoy!
