Lynn's Comments: When I worked with advertising agencies, one of the things I liked to do was to come up with slogans and catchy commentary. I never took the products as seriously as I took the marketing of them. I doubt that I could do a good job of this today--I'm far too cynical!
Lynn's Comments: This one strip brought so many comments that I had to have help to answer the mail. It seems that most of us see our pets as part of the family.
Lynn's Comments: Apropos of making a pet’s meals as attractive as ours: There’s a commercial on now which shows the contents of a can of cat food neatly positioned on a plate with savoury flecks of something-or-other glinting deliciously from the sides. It looks like a gourmet treat. I had a pampered cat once and I made the mistake of heating up her dinner. Bad idea. It doesn’t matter how good a can of pet food looks, the smell is still…emetic.
Lynn's Comments: When my son was teething, I got tired of the mushy residue left after the available teething biscuits had been gummed. I had a dog (Farley) at the time, and in desperation, I gave Aaron a dog biscuit. He liked it. Dog biscuits became our teething chew of choice. Maybe there’s an invention here for an enterprising mom!
Lynn's Comments: This strip was a lot of fun to do. Sometimes I had no punch line in mind at all…I just wanted to draw the dog!
