A comic about Curs and Epicures.
My wife was away on business over the last week, so it was up to me to amuse and feed our little furry tyrant of a mutt.
On reflection after creating this comic, I’ve come to the conclusion that we pet owners are all slightly touched in the head.
We all mollycoddle our pet’s every whim and need with special food, toys, and clothing.
For example, our Chihuahua/Jack Russell dog, Zeke, will only eat expensive quality food. We’ve tried to get him to eat cheap kibble but he refuses it like Julia Childs avoided veganism.
Much like other spoiled dogs, Zeke has a small wardrobe of fashions. It consists of a light summer rain coat, a Fall rain coat, and a stylish but cute coat for Winter.
He also has a toy box brimming over with Chew Toys, Tug-of-War Toys, and Treat Puzzle Toys…although he only plays with three of them, two of which are toys made to hold treats, of course.
In terms of creature comforts, he’s got a dog bed in every room of the house, yet he insists on sleeping in our bed.
We let him do so because we’re suckers for his devious doggy charms, thanks to our being slightly touched in the head.
I’m sure that you, the reader, if you happen to also be a pet owner you know what I’m talking about.
Our love for our dog, cat, rat, rabbit, ferret, fish, lizard, snake, or tarantula makes us go to great ridiculous lengths to appease these beasts.
This point brings me back to what happened while Deb was away.
After being stuck with Zeke for a week, and his endlessly staring me down from one end of the couch, I made the strangest purchase just so I could break up the monotony of our daily routine.
At least now, when I’m not playing “Maurice, the French waiter” with Zeke, I can spice things up in the bedroom with Deb when “Guido, the Italian plumber” stops by for a little “pipe fitting.”
Have a great week, folks.
