RJ Survives Surgery: World Breathing Again

Over the Hedge

See.  This is how they’re going to pay for the operation.  And here you thought I’d just sailed over that plot sink hole.

Oh ye of little of faith.   I’m a professional.  I know what I’m doing.  This isn’t my first rodeo.

Trust, people.  It’s all about trust.

And beer.

And chips and salsa.

And more beer.

The One Where RJ is Knocked Out by Aunt S.Thetic

Over the Hedge

It should have been Aunt S. Thetic.  My bad.

The S stands for sadistic.   Or surly.

Or maybe Sue.

Who Shot RJ?

Again, apologies for the delay in posting these.  Here’s the Verne Shot RJ story line from 1999.   Interesting changes in character design since then.  Also, interesting fact…  T submitted this series for a Pulitzer in Editorial Cartooning.

Enjoy.

Cartoonist Fail

Over the Hedge

Apologies.  Forgot about today’s strip and the wrong link.  And the fact that the Who Shot RJ storyline is not up yet.   I’ll get it uploaded soon.  Found the cartoons.  Have to download some scanner software… blah…blah…blah…

Up soon.  Promise.

Sorry.

Assorted Gigs That Whirl

Over the Hedge

Had a long night last night.  Our pittie Jack got bit by a rattlesnake.  At this point, it looks like he’ll be fine, but it will still take a couple more days to be sure.   He got bit on the foreleg about midnight last night.  We took him to the vet emergency clinic where he spent the night on pain meds and an IV drip to keep him hydrated and his kidneys functioning.   Rattlesnake venom mostly attacks blood clotting.   Jack’s blood tests have showed decent, though hampered, clotting.  Fortunately, his condition so far hasn’t warranted anti-venom (at $800/dose).    His leg and chest are grossly swollen.  He’ll probably have a good bit of tissue necrosis around the bite area.

Jack’s taking it all like a trooper.  Tail still wagging.   Eyes bright.   I think he’ll pull through.  But, just in case, a kind thought to the diety of your choice wouldn’t hurt.
