The mysterious vanishing wonder-dog redux

As I mentioned before, the new-runs have one commonality with the original strip: in both versions of history, you could be forgiven for assuming that the Pattersons don’t have a dog. Farley was pretty much a big, shaggy no-show while he was alive, after all: his fame, as we all know, was due to his unnecessarily heroic death. The buckets of crocodile tears the inept twits who had neither patience or respect for him when he was alive convinced a generation of unobservant suckers that he was some sort of wonder-dog that was the center of attention in the Pattermanse. Now that whoever’s left reading the new-runs are beginning to see how little he really mattered, it might occur to them that Lynn played them. Then again, they might be stampeded into blaming the mean, cruel people who insist that Lynn’s creation make sense and adhere to the moral precepts that we all must live with.
