My favorite animal to draw in this sequence is the husky, Nonnie. More than a year ago I was chatting with a fan about my parents rescues and she commented that she didn't remember seeing a Happy Tail for Nonnie. I told her there wasn't one, I was saving the best story to actually put in the comic. It's still a good 20 strips out yet, but I'm enjoying getting to draw her in all her neurotic, slightly psychotic glory. It was my husband's idea to give her the uneven pupils.
