Ten random things: March 4

Ten comics dogs:

  1. Otto (Beetle Bailey)
  2. Farley (For Better or For Worse)
  3. Daisy (Blondie)
  4. Odie (Garfield)
  5. Marmaduke (Marmaduke)
  6. Snoopy (Peanuts)
  7. Dawg (Hi and Lois)
  8. Snert (Hagar the Horrible)
  9. Rover (Red and Rover)
  10. Poncho (Pooch Cafe)

I was doing a crossword earlier today, and come across the following clue: [Comics dog]. Five letters. The answer didn't spring to mind immediately, so I flipped the paper over and just started listing all the comics dogs I could think of, until finally hitting upon SNERT, which was the right length and had an R in the right place, and which turned out to be the right answer. At that point I had eight dogs listed... hey, it's 80% of a list! And they say doing crosswords isn't a productive way to spend time.
