  1. As a struggling cartoonist I always enjoy cartoons from the past. Great years for those cartoonist.

    Hope some day I can sell more and more insdead of far and few as of now.

    Your cartoons gives me more drive to continue cartooning.

  2. i dont understand why number 2 doesnt have a caption, who this man al is in bobs comments. why would he mention a microchip of all things for a dog.i dont get it.

  3. Some mid-century dogs having their day here, and their parents! #2 is my favorite of this group. No caption needed. I know it’s not by Al Hirschfeld (one of my favorites) but definitely has ‘the look’.

    Otherwise numbers 3 and 6 are next in line. One thing we should be doing differently now than back then is using a harness instead of a collar (at least for walks) so the dog’s neck isn’t pulled. The collar’s still good for i.d., and so is a microchip.
