Here’s a very special comic strip for me. One day, I received a request from someone who wanted a picture of Candace and Fido to hang on the wall. I was thrilled, and got busy. Here is what I came up with, minus the haiku. But I decided it’d be fun to combine two projects into one, and I added to my own version of the picture to create this rather simple, yet loving (I hope) cartoon. I’m terrible at writing poems, but I really enjoyed taking on a haiku, as there need not be any rhyming. I think my favorite source of haikus is the comic strip Buckles, by David Gilbert.
