Sunday, July 12, 2009 Marmaduke Analyzed

Dottie and the kids have devised a plan to rid themselves of Phil for a few hours. The plan begins by waking Phil up from his hangover with a sense of urgency. Marmaduke, always happy to disturb his master's rest, readily joins in.

Having roused Phil from his drunken stupor, the family convinces him that he's late for work. Dottie even hurries him out the door when he stops to kiss the kids. Phil, dressed like a scarecrow, is so confused that he even believes he hears his ride coming. All is going according to plan until Marmaduke suddenly realizes that it's Sunday and stops Phil in his tracks.

The comic ends with Phil believing that Marmaduke wants hugs and kisses. This clearly shows the extent of Phil's drunkenness. Unfortunately we are left hanging as to the outcome. Will Phil kiss the dog and continue on his way? Will Phil realize it's Sunday and stay home, ruining Dottie's plans? Will Dottie kill the meddling dog? These questions - and many others - will be answered in the next episode of Marmaduke.
