“Through the tougher passages of this crazy ride called life on Earth, MUTTS is my daily reminder that a simple shift of perspective makes all the difference, in my experience. Whether it’s the comfort of little pink socks, the gift of friendship, or a good chuckle from a ‘bonk’ on the head courtesy of an acorn of wisdom, I am always brought back to the attitude of gratitude. Thank you for my daily uplift.” — Sage
“MUTTS just reminds me of the sweetness of animals and how there’s still stuff in this world worth caring about. More often than not, it makes me say, ‘Aww.'” — Libby B.
“I had your strip featuring the animals walking along and one only being rained on by a cloud. The caption, ‘It’s just not my day!’ made me remember to go out and make it my day no matter what! So much inspiration in one simple comic strip!” — Katt
“MUTTS reminds me to keep things simple and to smile from the heart. I have loved this comic from the first day I read it.” — Olivia
“I start everyday with MUTTS. The comic and quote make me laugh and reflect each day. I post MUTTS at my desk to remind people to love animals with all the respect and adoration they deserve.” — Lisa
“MUTTS is my daily reminder of how all creatures are so unique and yet all have the capacity to love greatly. Humans are so lucky to be the recipients of some of that love. It’s a reminder to not take that love for granted, and to love and respect them too.” — Joella C.
“The love and loyalty between an animal and a human — soul mates! Reading MUTTS encourages me to keep on loving my BFF through thick and thin, and it touches my heart knowing how so many others — thousands — feel the same. MUTTS brings a positive smile to my face every time I read it. Thank you!” – Monica F.
