As part of our ongoing 25th anniversary celebration, we’re digging deep into our archives to reminisce on some of the sweetest, funniest, and most significant moments from the past two and a half decades of MUTTS.

The following strips are from the Christmas season of 1994, the first year MUTTS was published. Enjoy!

I can’t begin to express the joy I get from this sweet little comic strip everyday.

Love, love, love Mutts. They begin my day. A day without Mutts is a like a day without sunshine. I have been a follower since the beginning. The phenomenal work done for animals keeps me shopping ‘Mutts’ every year.


I notice that the panels have more words/sentences etc. I guess 25 years later, it gets harder to come up with many more interesting thoughts and ideas in keeping the comic strip fresh.




We have a 5 year old rescue dog and she is wonderful.

I am 80 years old. I MUST read “my” Mutts everyday. The warmth and candor of the characters and the thought-provoking messages are something I’ve treasured for years. I have past panels from the beginning in files and on external devices because I find it difficult to erase them. And I have hard copies on my desk as I write.
