    You should never scold a dog for something it did (or didn’t do) unless you catch it in the act. It won’t understand.

    Compared to yesterday their house must be nicely warm enough for them to walk around in bare feet, yet the mother is having such a tantrum and her blood is rushing to her head, that her feet have turned white cold as ice!

    Blame the dog, yeah. Farley has probably done it before, anyway. Lol…

    A good strip could be where Elizabeth considers a career in law enforcement and starts acting like a cop…

    John sees a ruined cake

    John: “Oh no!” points finger at Farley Bad dog, bad….

    Elizabeth: “Sir, before you accuse the dog, you need to take a look at these surveillance photos.”

    Elizabeth hands pictures to John. The first has Elly looking at the cake. The second has Elly grabbing a piece of cake. The third has Elly on the counter, wolfing the cake into her mouth like a wild animal.

    Mad Magazine had a strip decades ago where mom tells the oldest boy to feed the dog. He passes the buck to his sister, threatening to tell mom about whatever if she doesn’t feed the dog. Sis does the same to the youngest child, about 6-7. Kid looks at dog (a handsome but apologetic German Shephard) and says, because of you, I’m always getting in trouble. Just for that, you don’t get any dinner.

    With ‘toons’ like this one, I just want to reach thru the paper and throttle the mother/father and ask them, “What idiot leaves a trash bag where animals and small children can get into it?”.

    I can this happening: mother was gathering the garbage to take out to the bin, and then rushed to answer the phone, leaving that big bag— that might have had a tiny tear—by the door, and here we are.

    It reminded me of the days when there used to be people dropping by “just to say hello”, and my kids were that young.

    For the people, who might be posting, who are very young, and aren’t at all familiar with wall phones; or that in the days gone by, people did drop in univited, especially if one lived in a small town where those customs were kept.

    Another day of eat, sleep, scream. Even her name “Elly”, is an anagram of the word “yell”.

    There is little difference between the canine and the kiddo when it comes to exploring the dustbin.

    As is a frequent, and daily occurrence in the comics, people, as is their right, tend to overthink a comic, of any particular type. This is nothing more than a variation of the old “blame it on the dog.” April could have “cut one (as we used to say, way back when),” and Elly would walk into the room just after April left, and, seeing just the dog sitting there, would have blamed him.
