As we approach the end of the month, today begins a full six-day Mutts story arc from this week one year ago, spotlighting the primary bird character Philippe alongside the two main characters Earl (the mutt) and Mooch (the cat):
Stupid the Bird encounters a new kind of "kite" in this Diamond Lil Sunday strip from this date last year.
Another Cheezburger captioned photo. This one just makes me laugh out loud.
Speed Bump from two years ago features a Medicare-eligible bird and a youngster.
Bizarro from three years ago today, featuring my favorite species of companion bird. Fans of a certain BBC comedy from the 1980s will get this inside joke: The question was purely rhetorical, Bernard.
We go back to 2011 for this cute Mutts strip featuring Philippe in an unexpected role:
Peanuts from this date in 1966 features the barely-able-to-fly bird that eventually evolved into the more familiar yellow Woodstock.
A play on the usual "I'd hit that" about an attractive person, changed to a companion bird and its mirror.
