Every Mutts strip is inspirational – but these are some of the best

All are your comics


I love MUTTS. I read it early every morning. Among beautiful gifts each day (starting with the gift of the day) MUTTS cartoon, and the daily quote, start me off with a smile, a lesson, hope, and a kindness. Thank you wonderful Patrick McDonnell and all who bring MUTTS to the world.

I’m an animal lover who happens to also be young breast cancer patient. Everyday I get my daily dose of Mutts and it makes me realize just how lucky I am to be surrounded by such beautiful loving creatures. This grouping of comics, especially “without this”, is such a simple message that we often (if not always) overlook. From us bi-peds, to pawed, scaled, feathered, and furred, thank you for reminding us how special each and everyday is…You rock! (we roll!).

I love each one of these. My favourite is the series from ’02 (I think) when Earl gets a new sweater, and then “loses” it: by giving it to Guard Dog on his chain. Even thinking of the beauty of that series makes me cry. I hope to collect the series & frame them on my wall as soon as I have a home of my own again. Your art & your work are marvellous, Patrick, never stop drawing for us!

My favorite is when Sthinky was saying he is going to see his angels and His friends follow him. He is going to the animal shelter.There was a poster of this at the shelter I went to to adopt my dog Emma .
I loved this comic before I adopted her.
