Sighhhh… Remember spending summers as a kid coming up with ridiculous games like the one Alice and the gang are playing in Sunday's Cul de Sac? I sure miss those days. Well, minus the barfing.

Bill Amend, creator of FoxTrot, is a master at blending pop culture into his comics while maintaining each character's integrity. The result: you can't help but smile when some of his characters are acting "out of character" because of the cool thing of the moment. This Sunday's comic is no exception when Jason and Marcus head to see "The Dark Knight Rises."

This past Sunday’s Pooch Café likely made a lot of dog owners laugh out loud! Only Poncho and Boomer would come up with such a self-serving idea as having pigs sign a “bone donor card.” It’s not surprising, however, they are dogs after all, and have one thing on their minds – FOOD.
Being a dog owner has introduced me to the simple and one-track mind of a dog. This particular comic tickles me when I think about my own black lab, Rosey, and what lengths she would go to get herself a nice rawhide.
I hope all of you dog lovers enjoy this comic as much as I do!

If you have at least one dog in your household, then you can probably relate to this past Sunday's The Buckets by Greg Cravens. Let's face it: Our four-legged friends love to accompany us on walks. They're great company, indeed; however, before you can even make it through that one-syllable word, they're dancing erratic circles around you, making it nearly impossible to leash the wild beast! Greg Cravens has illustrated this perfectly! How many of you can relate?

Just about every new parent I've talked to tells me they had a similar reaction as this couple upon bringing their baby home for the first time. Several months of putting together a nursery helped my wife and me avoid too much disorientation in that category. But I would have loved to have had one of those balloons. Little touches like that make F Minus especially great.
