To Celebrate National Pet Day, Here Are My 17 Comics About Our Beloved Companions


When I was a kid, one of my dream jobs was becoming a newspaper cartoonist. I was a big fan of Garfield and Peanuts, then later Calvin & Hobbes and The Far Side. I went to college to become an illustrator. I was supposed to be drawing things for advertisements in magazines and stuff like that. All along though I would draw some funny comics to entertain my friends. I would make photocopied books and pass them out to whoever would take them. By the time I finished college newspapers were dying and my dream job was dying along with them.

Cats and dogs are companions and members of our family. This is why it is important to note their importance for National Pet Day. Here's my small collection of comics involving pets. Enjoy!
