I originally posted this story in text form several years ago, but thought it would be more fun as a cartoon. Hope you enjoy it!
This particular event actually happened several years ago. I didn’t get around to cartooning it before Lord Dormir and Emerson passed away, but I’ve decided that their stories should still be shared even though they’re more distant memories. I hope you enjoy it!
It has been a very, very, very long time since I finished a cartoon and shared it here for you. Thanks to a recent incident, I was inspired to make this little story for you. Please enjoy:
ME: Um, hey, Sir Oliver. What are you doing here? You’re not supposed to be outside without my daughter.
SIR OLIVER: I’m just as surprised as you are. I was just minding my own business, walking around the kitchen, when suddenly I found myself outside. I certainly didn’t go outside alone on purpose, because I know that is not allowed and I would never, ever break the rules.
ME: Except for all the times you’ve snuck out in the past. And all the times you have jumped on the counter. And all the times you…
SIR OLIVER: You have no proof that I ever did any of that.
ME: Shall I show you pictures?
SIR OLIVER: Just shut up and open the door, Columbo.
WORDSWORTH: Welcome home, Mama!
ME: Thank you Wordsworth! What have you been up to while I was away?
WORDSWORTH: Oh nothing much. Just hanging out in my kennel. You know how much I love my kennel.
ME: Oh really? You didn’t by any chance take a nap on my bed?
WORDSWORTH: Why on earth would you think that?
ME: I don’t know, just a hunch. Also, my pillow is covered in short, yellow hairs.
WORDSWORTH: Those could be anyone’s.
ME: Riiiiiiight. Except you’re the only one in the house who has short yellow fur.
WORDSWORTH: Circumstantial evidence. I want a lawyer.
