Dog days

Dear New Yorker merchandising department:

Please bring back your Dog Cartoons calendars.

I have bought these wall calendars for years. Last year, I couldn’t find that version, but I started shopping in January…so I blamed it on a lack of inventory.

Now I realize they weren’t made in 2012. And early shopping reveals they aren’t around for 2013 either.

This is not a good way to start the year, New Yorker.  I need my monthly dose of doggie humor.  Now, be a good boy and bring them back…okay?

I’ll give you a treat.

Dog days

Is Snoopy happy here?

That strategically placed leaf gives the appearance of a smile. But what is the greatest spokesdog of all time really thinking?

I’ve decided he’s happy.

Possibly not at being blown around by the wind at that particular moment…but I was none too pleased at getting caught in a surprise shower yesterday before my trip to Boston, and I’m still awfully glad to see the arrival of fall.

In fact, I’ve been celebrating all the firsts. First socks. First pair of boots. First sweatshirt, first fleece jacket, first quilted vest.

When I can put on my flannel jammies — well, that will be a real party.

Welcome autumn! I’m so glad you’re here.
