I hope that eagle sneezes and drops squirrel.I see the skunk and the raccoon and the porcupine still out there and that new dog with the funny shaped head and of course the buzzard and the crow.Long May They Live!And Eagle: Drop that squirrel Right NOW.And goodbye to the rat, the mouse, the rabbits and the crane, and whoever that little gray critter is, maybe the rat.Long May They Live!
Thank you, Steve.It has been a wonderful adventure.The comics will not be complete without your incredibly beautiful strip.
Look… Another lost dog is waiting to cross the road!
That’s awesome to see the entire journey including in one image.There’s another lovable pup on gocomics that needs support, please consider subscribing to him:Girth
Another lovely ironic twist! All this time, LD and Tortie have been traveling about in a wildlife preserve. Gorgeous scenery, lots of different kinds of animals and habitats. Another edition for my refrigerator!
Hey, gang, don’t we have one more week to see how this continues to unfold?
I know I’m repeating myself but I want ‘new’ Little Dog to be okay too.
Steve Boreman still hasn’t revealed LDL name, I do hope we aren’t all kept pondering about that.
How many of you actually know the name of the crow that hangs around with that wicked vulture with his grim sense of humour.?
When our beloved LDL finally ends this month I sincerely hope that Steve Boreman has the complete series published in print or at least ebook format. I know for sure I ’ll be first in line for a copy of LDL adventures.
Fantastic, original, form-challenging, intellect-engaging, ponderously and wonderful strip. Congratulations to all who had a hand in publishing it over the years. On more than one occasion I paused over some image or notion presented in LDL. It often gave me something to think about. Isn’t life wonderful that way!
It’s been a great strip. Is the name Saint Eligius a reference to St. Elsewhere and the rather unusual ending of that series?
Please don’t let this end
The 31st is a Sunday, so maybe one more? Right, Steve?? One more Sunday??? RIGHT?
I do hope we have another week of LDL.
I was going to say that life was returning to normal.It looks like it’s been normal all along.
Hmmm…. Perhaps LDL’s name is “Tommy”.
Oh, you stole my thunder, scottie4851! Yes, Eligius is the patron saint of vets AND yes, rsketch, it IS a wink to the finale of St. Elsewhere. You guys are all so sharp!
I wish I had one more week to share with you, but I think it’s fitting to leave it here and let the Dog and Tortoise decide where they want to be tomorrow. A decision I’ll let you all make with them.
Your comments are so appreciated and inspiring. I guess I should get to work on a Little Dog compilation! I don’t know what plans GoComics has for reruns, but I do hope to see you all again at some point in the future. (Like maybe a quick post to Facebook at Halloween?)
Please stay in touch
HEY STEVE, SERIOUSLY, IF YOU EVER THINK OF PUTTING SOME STRIPS TOGETHER IN BOOK FORM, YOU WILL HAVE A BUNCH OF US READY TO BUY THEM!
And may you and your Family be happy, healthy and safe! Thank you again for sharing your talent with us!
You know, re-reading this last strip again and again, it fits! It is actually *the perfect ending"! LOL! “What goes around, comes around” and “history repeats itself”. I think I get it!
Whoa—this is the last strip, or close to it?! Hope we have at least another week left, as others have said.
Thank you for sharing, Steve.
What a charming finish! I, too, am sad to see the strip ending, but I feel happy and warm that Little Dog is home, tail a’wagging (as always).
LDL has been one of my daily pleasures for years I always saw him as a basset hound, but I usually see references to beagles in the comments. The long ears and big paws and nose and high forehead. No matter, I loved him.
Steve – Thank you for bringing your delightful creation to us for all these years. I look forward to seeing what you do in the future.
@sboremanI thought it was a great ending! Thank you for the great strip and the years of enjoyment you gave us!
Here I am, 73 years old, and blubbering like a baby once I realized Little Dog finally found his home again. Thanks for including Vernon in his newly found home life. Maybe somewhere down the road LD and Vernon will be like Willie Nelson’s song “On the Road Again!” Good luck to all the characters I have enjoyed so much over the years.
I will miss you LD and friends.
Well, it is Monday morning and something is missing from my morning routine before I head off to work. My daily road trip with LD, Tortie and “friends”. I miss, and will continue to miss, this wonderful strip. It was part comic, part parable. Like life, it was frequently heartwarming, sometimes disturbing, a little scary and, ultimately, very satisfying. I learned a lot reading LDL.
During LD’s journey, I sometimes commented that I wished LD would find his home. Today, I am feeling the sting of the old expression, “Be careful what you wish for, it may come true”. Now, I hope to re-read the entire odessey, continue to get my LD fix, and let my own imagination fill-in the gaps. For example, now is probably an appropriate time to announce to the world that LD is sitting here with me on the couch in my den and Tortie is grumbling about — oh, something.
Thank you, Steve! Godspeed to you and your family. I hope there will be a compilation published, book tour, book signing, etc.,. By the way, I’ve named my dog, LD, ". . . . . .
Many, many thanks to Steve Boreman for such a heartwarming delightful comic strip, I’m was so looking forward to another final week of LDL but it’s quite well done an unique final revelation to see our LDL wasn’t lost after all, just enjoying a very long adventure to satisfy his wanderlust and curiosity, and even though we still don’t his name, I and many others here will always think of him in our hearts as Little Dog Loved.
Now there is only one thing left to do and that is for everyone here to start typing out emails to gocomics.com and request, no insist that they immediately rerun LDL from the very first strip.
And yes, Steve, having finally accepted the good/bad news that LD is home, please accept my thank also for the enormous heart you have shared with us all in your lovely, beautifully-illustrated stories. Best to you, and we ALL certainly hope to hear from you again.
God bless you and your family, Steve.(And keep an eye on those kids of yours…wouldn’t want them to get lost.)
Like my little Libby, you found your way back home. So happy for you, LD. So sad for us!!!
((Sniff)) ((Clears throat)) ((Rubs eyes)) Crying? I’m not crying… I’m just a little tired…… is all. Goodbye, my animal friends. If I could climb in there with you, I would.
My poor eyes enlarged this as I re-read it. Steve included some recurring characters he used over the years. If you all take a CLOSE look, you will see them!
Thank you again and again, Steve, for this DELIGHTFUL strip!
AND I STILL SAY HIS NAME WAS and IS LITTLE DOG! :-)
Maybe we can get a Little Dog Lost collection published?
Thanks for the journey, Steve!
I know something was missing in my day yesterday. Had to search for LDL this morning to verify it’s over. LDL will be missed. Thank you Mr. Boreman.
There’s always tomorrow.
Thank you Steve for everything and best of luck to you. This was a wonderful and well done strip.
Seems stuck on the 24th and today is the 26th. What happened?? Its not the end of the month. Is this the END?
The other commenters have said it all.Add me to the list of those who have enjoyed it over time.I have often remarked that artists of such strips have a wonderful gift of being able to make folks smile and feel the emotion in our hearts.I am in awe of you all.God bless.
I thought we would find out his name. I wish I knew, but this way he is everyone’s dog.I’m going to miss this strip so much
Love this strip! I am hoping for reruns also. I’ve only been reading for about 2 years and would love to make the complete journey with LDL. Thanks for a wonderful time! And thanks for a happy ending! Those are not easy to find these days!
Please don’t end this strip, Steve. You introduced another little lost dog, so let his adventure continue the strip.
I love all the strips, but I’ll really miss those beautifully drawn Sunday strips.
I sent an email to gocomics asking that they start Little Dog at the beginning. They replied, but with no commitment to whether or not they will re-run it. Sounded like a “maybe”.
Hopefully Gocomics will be nice enough to re-run from the start. Even nicer would be a whole new strip about the adventures of the other little dog wanting to cross the road!(With a sometime “guest star”appearance of LDL,Vernon,etc.) Hmmmmm Steve??
That’s it? You’re just quitting?
at LOIS CARY
He doesn’t owe us anything, he is putting his FAMILY FIRST! Good for him! I will miss this strip as well, but here is what he posted on July 11
sboreman said, 17 days agoThe Dog is having those same feelings of deja vu you’re describing, Dry and Dusty. And as many of you have suspected, yes he IS getting closer to home. After 10 years on the road, it would only seem fair to let the Dog finally arrive.
Like him, I’ve had a few big changes of my own over the last 3,395 strips – including the birth of three wonderful kids (a new one just last month, in fact! Hence my recent hiatus). I have decided it’s time to retire Little Dog Lost, at the end of this month.
I can’t adequately express my thanks to you all for following the adventures of Dog and Turtle (Tortoise!), Vulture and Crow. Your readership and your comments brought a smile to my face every single day as I hope I’ve been able to bring to yours.
I hope you’ll stop by the Little Dog Facebook page from time to time, as I have an inkling he may get loose every now and then. Your friendship has made this little dog feel at home, even from way across the other side of the highway.
Thank you! Please stay in touch
Little dog lost facebook page showing Vox.Well, that explains the funny looking dog by the edge of the road and vulture telling him when its safe to cross!!! Good one Steve!!!
“Oh well… There’s always tomorrow.”
I miss my comic! :-(
Thanks for the good ending. I will really miss this strip.
I, too, miss the adventures of LDL and Torti!!! I keep coming back here to see if we have started a new adventure or a new dogs adventures.
Thanks for all your wonderful comments. I’m hoping to be able to share reruns with you soon. Stay tuned!
Re-runs would be GREAT. I’m doing my own re-running but it’s time consuming getting back to the beginning. Here’s hoping….!!!!
One of the best comics ever!! I miss it so much.
I love this strip!! One of my all-time favorites.
Miss you, little Dog!
i sure do miss this one………………………..
Please bring this back and start all over from the beginning.My absolute favorite strip.
Oh pleasecould we have a rerun : this was one of my favoriteat the same time deep and cuteand when i showed it, there were plenty of persons who could relate to it and find pleasure in the cartoonsbien amicalementand in any casthank for your workanne
Hello Steve, hope you still check these. The real life passing of Brian Anderson’s dog Sophie made me think of LDL and brought me back here today. I saw where you posted a few months back re-runs may be coming. I know a lot of us would still like to see that! Hope you are well and had a good Christmas and New Year.
Alrighty! THANKS TCAR FOR THE HEADS UP!
And THANK YOU, STEVE! Providing of course, I can navigate the new “better improved ????website!
