Pirate Mike’s Problem Puppy

Patch the Pirate Puppy is a character I desperately want to work more into the strip. Those who remember my previous strip “4 Punky Puppies” will probably recognize Patch’s design as basically Spanky with a patch of gray over his right eye. He’s not Spank, who is far more id than Patch, where as Patch is definitely I think just a little bit confused by the human world and it’s inability to grasp the contributions he thinks he can make to their quality of life. As we progress, we’ll see where Patch goes, but I love dogs (I have two of my own) and, let’s be frank, every great strip has to have a dog.
