“It does not matter the reason I turned my computer on, business or fun (Yesh!), the first thing that I do every day is go to my email to see what Mooch, Earl, and the rest of the MUTTS family are up to. They fill my heart with love, laughter, and caring. After all, ‘We are all just walking each other home.'” — Kathryn C.
“With all the craziness and turmoil going on, it’s just special to see MUTTS daily and get a smile and warm feeling that picks me up!” — Ed W.
“I have been reading MUTTS since its induction! There is nothing better than a wonderfully drawn comic strip that has the words to match. Since the beginning, MUTTS has been a ray of sunshine — so much love, positivity, and kindness. And now, with so much hate and fear and angst about the future, it is so good to know that people like Patrick exist …someone who spreads warmth and goodness and generosity through his daily strips. If more people thought like him and used their talents for good, we would be in a much better place.” — Michelle K.
“I had become disillusioned and disappointed in the comics since so many were snarky and featured mean-spirited humor. Then I found the gentle and uplifting humor of MUTTS and it’s brightened every day since. It matches my own peaceable kingdom of cat and dog friends. Mooch and Earl frequently give voice to what’s in my own days and heart. They and their friends make me laugh, smile, and cry. Thank you for bringing such goodness to life.” — Karin N.
“MUTTS helps me remember there are humane people in what sometimes feels like a heartless world.” — Wendy D.
“I’ve been reading the comic strips since learned to read. I loved comic strips with animals, like Calvin and Hobbes and Garfield. However, my favorite ever, ever, ever is MUTTS! I never miss a day. MUTTS truly shows a love and caring for animals that is unique to MUTTS!!! It reflects that we save our pets, and they save us. Thank you a million times over!!!” — Vivian A.
“Not only does MUTTS make me smile, it’s about everything that I’m passionate about regarding kindness to animals everywhere.” — Karen D.
