Something a little different — for this month we created a video for the newsletter.

I had just received the preliminary, unbound version of my MUTTS anniversary book The Art of Nothing — scheduled for release on October 15 — and the MUTTS team thought is would be fun to give you a sneak peek.

I’m looking forward to sharing the book with you this fall. I hope you enjoy it as much as I’ve enjoyed working on it.

Thanks for watching.

And, speaking of books, I can highly recommend Greta Thunberg’s No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference. She is an inspiration and has a message we all need to hear.

If only every wish came true so promptly. ; -)


The avatar for my comment should be Mooch… the cat.

One can’t have too many Mutts pictures and books. I love Earl and Mooch and so admire the wonderful art work and l sentiments that go with the strips.

Have followed MUTTS for years. I have a five years stack of daily comics I review when I’m feeling blue. There is a shelf in my bookcase dedicated to MUTTS STUFF. I’m almost 90 years old and a loyal fan. The MUTTS GANG provides happiness for all ages.


Congratulations! It looks amazing!
