These cartoons help me laugh at myself

Illustrator Debra Sifen is a famous cartoonist and captures small joys of life on tiny comic strips. Her recent work in Hair of the Dog is a delight to read. Excerpt from an interview...

You do only dog cartoons or others too?
While Hair of the Dog is all about life from a dog’s perspective, Seaweed’s Oasis is a bit of a soap opera with characters who work at a bar and grill by the sea. Of course, Seaweed, the dog, is the main character, but not the only source of humour. I also have a life-long ongoing collection of cartoon greeting cards for various occasions.

Why this affinity for dog cartoons?
Dogs are man’s best friend, and part of being a best friend is absorbing and reflecting our ups and downs. These humble beings teach us many life lessons. Reflecting the humour through our faithful friends makes it easier to laugh at one self. And when you can laugh at yourself, it makes everything more bearable.

Perhaps one reason we are fascinated by cats is because such a small animal can contain so much independence, dignity, and freedom of spirit. Unlike the dog, the cat's personality is never bet on a human's. He demands acceptance on his own terms.
—Lloyd Alexander

In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.
—Terry Pratchett

Cats are connoisseurs of comfort.
—James Herriot

Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are God. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are God.
—Christopher Hitchens;

Reduce Stress. Dr. Becker notes, “The key is to reduce anxiety triggers.” If you have a vet visit, “don’t get the carrier out the night before,” give them a few days to get prepared. If they’re nervous alone or travelling, play soothing music, or draw the shades. The less stimulus pets receive from the outside world, the less anxiety they’ll have about events outside their control.
