Our Absurd Life: 03/25/21 – Family Pet Feud

Howls to the Night Owls

Well here’s the final day of Dogs & Cats Week — and according to this Essential Cartoon it looks like we have a tie.

Makes sense, since they are both awesome and extremely important in their own unique way.

Sallie cracked me up a few days ago.  She had sent me an email which inadvertently contained the germ of my original idea for this cartoon, something I had thought up a couple weeks ago.  She must be a mind reader.

Well, this was a blast and a great learning experience.  My cats & dogs may not have all looked extremely original from night to night, but I got enough of the basics down to feel more comfortable in drawing them.  What I’ve learned during this experience is that it doesn’t have to look perfect — it just has to get done.  And I got better with practice.

Personally, since I grew up with them, I’ve always been a cat person.  But, over the years, I’ve come to appreciate dogs and their big hearts and all they bring to the world.  I believe that having a cat or a dog is like having a little home . . .

. . . waiting for you at home.

I wish everyone a restful rest of your night.

Until mañana . . .
