Another True Story

true story

What I like about this one is the way it plays with the structure of the gag-strip format. The first panel takes the part of the punchline here, followed by the setup. Once you reach the end you have to double back (mentally) for completion of the central theme (why is the dog acting this way?). If you remove the first panel the rest makes no sense.

And it's true... Tico does hate the snow.

Sergio thought this one was particularly funny. I think the last panel just captures Tico so exactly as he's always in that position, though usually it's to get his tummy rubbed.
