Dog's Best Friend
"I laughed so hard at Citizen Dog one day that I actually got the hiccups." —Kevin Fagan, creator of Drabble
Man is dog's best friend. At least, that is the case in Dog's Best Friend, the hilarious collection of Citizen Dog comic strips from creator Mark O'Hare.
The humor of quick-witted canine Fergus and his hapless owner Mel are reminiscent of classic comedy teams such as Laurel and Hardy or the Honeymooners' Ed Norton and Ralph Cramden. Everything Fergus and Mel do, they do together—whether it's going to the movies, shopping, taking a walk, or sleeping.
By foregoing the traditional master/dog relationship, Mel and Fergus are in a perpetual—and hysterical—power struggle that's reminiscent of an old married couple. Which one gets to be "roller guy" and who has to paint all the edges when the two decide to repaint the living room? How many times does Fergus get to eat—six or seven? The two may never figure out solutions to these everyday problems, but Citizen Dog readers found out long ago that the results are always hysterical.
Anyone who enjoys slapstick humor, the company of a fun pet, or just plain funny circumstances won't want to miss Dog's Best Friend. Whether you're a child, a parent, or a senior citizen, it's a treasure of strips that will leave you howling.
