Meet Yana "I don't want a dog!" Korelenko.
(To my American readers going "Hey! What's a Black and Tan Coonhound doing in Ukraine!" good eye, but that's a Ukrainian Mountain Hound. :P)
He's traveled 378 miles through the cold, rugged wilderness in search of a friend, and he's finally found you. Now give him that potato.
But a dog makes everything better, and then people can't sneak up on your ass.
I can't offhand think of any creature /except/ a dog that'll work as a devoted bodygaurd/space heater for the price of a little affection + a potato. Sounds like a good deal to me, but I'm not desperately short on calories. :P
Yeah, just be sure not to feed the dog onions. Onions are toxic for dogs.
That's actually why she has a potato and not an onion in this scene. :p
Good for you for knowing that.
Excellent sequence here! And that dog! Drawn so well and the last panel there :(
I had to draw some of this around a friend's dog who wanted to sit on me. So I had a reference right there. :P
