On non-heroic dogs and disappointing sales figures.

As we all know, Lynn spent an ungodly amount of time five and a half years ago engaged in promoting the return of Farley to the strip. This is because one thing that she was aware of is that most of her fanbase remember one thing about him: his "heroic" exit from the strip. While it's true that we got a lot of mileage out of commentary about how everybody cried when he died saving April from her refusal to realize that she's not supposed to remember being lied to, it's also true that the people who expected him to be a sort of beloved fixture as well as a Canadian Content version of Lassie ended up being disappointed. After all, they had no way of knowing that Lynn used him as a means of expressing her belief that dogs are shaggy, stupid, smelly, dirty lummoxes who refuse to understand English no matter how sincere we poor, long-suffering pet owners are and are willed on us to keep us from the public sphere by cheating cheater husbands who cheat in the first place. I should think that this need to say "Dogs are stupid, right?" to a cohort of people who thought that Farley wasn't put on this Earth to be the butt of jokes about how having pets equates solely to Elly suffering because her family hates her soooooooooo much, they leash her to a stupid creature to keep her from expressing herself is pretty much most of the reason why Lynn's garage is filled with stuff she can't sell. They want to be part of the heroic legacy, not to aid and abet Lynn's need to avenge herself on something she had killed merely to avenge herself on her ex.
