This strip was my husband's idea. My new editor, Rachel Dworkin, pointed out that if you're not Jewish, you may not realize Nonnie is running off with a lamb shank bone in strip 666. My husband came up with the fix and then suggested this strip, because, well, with Nonnie, you kind of could see her making a shank. Ah, she was a crazy dog! I have neighbors who just got a red female husky and her wild antics make me think of what Nonnie would have been like if she'd been raised by humans.
