Perhaps I find this so funny because we own a little terrier like this and the strip is so true :-)

Also, this gives me an opportunity to give a little shout out to Patrick McDonnell in general as I consider him to be a genius at color. When I started doing the color for John I looked around the comics at how color comics generally look. I checked out "The Art of Patrick McDonnell" at the library (our paper does not carry Mutts, more's the pity) and I was thoroughly blown away, both  by his art work and his use of color. If I can contribute color to Edison that is even one tenth the quality of Mutts I can die happy :-)
