A gamer’s kryptonite

2014-9-8Coffee-dog just wants some lovin’.

So, switching phones has had some unforeseen consequences.

1)  I no longer know how to draw my phone in the comic… iphones are easy to draw identifiably, android phones are not.
2)  my screen is actually big enough for me to want to use it for games.  …where has all my free time gone?
3)  I’m repairing my damaged reputation of “Rob never responds to anything”, because my phone is loud enough for me to hear the ringer!

Everyone, have a great week!  Try and pay attention to your dog, if you have one.  If you don’t, you probably have really high scores on all your favourite videogames!  good job.





if anything, it’s good to have a dog licking my face first thing in the morning because it makes me shower.  There are mornings where i am lazy, or running late, and I think to myself, “well, time for some shower in a bottle”(deodorant), it is nice to have a little added incentive to keep me hygienic… ironic, i suppose.

time to hit the showers.



Time for bed!

2014-6-20Coffee-dog is such an obedient little puppy!  When it works in her favour.  Luckily, she’s still easily manipulatable with treats.

Have a good friday everyone!  And a GREAT week-end!  see you next week.



every dog has it’s day

2014-5-30Don’t get me wrong, i’ve personally stood in-between a charging rottweiler and my little rat-dog!  Wise? probably not, but i just love my little rat-dog so!  …i fully understand that sometimes, the big dog just wants to devour the little guy…  But those experiences are few-and-far-between.  For the most part, my dog gets along well with other dogs.


Colonel Kennel: the future-dog.

…don’t really know why I spelt “Colonel” wrong in the first frame, but, meh.  Too tired/lazy to change it!
As previously mentioned, I am posting this in the past, and it is showing up in the present!  Or, the future, as I type this.  I am away at a retreat with 15 students this weekend!  It’s gonna be crazy!  Hopefully no one will get injured!

Alright!  so, regular charlie and the ghost returns tomorrow!

every… morning…


I have a 4 month old daughter!  you would think that she would be what wakes us up, but no, it is my 1.5 year old dog that wakes me up early.  Coffee-dog, it’s a good thing you’re cute.  I’ve posted about this before… Just wanted to give you an update i guess!  no progress whatsoever.

Fun facts about Bunnies!  They can get pregnant 24 hours after giving birth.  They can have up to 8 offspring a litter.. and they can birth a litter a month.  That means, in one year, an especially fertile bunny could have 96 offspring… although, i think that would be a pretty extreme case.

For a long time, people believed that bunnies were hermaphrodites, and didn’t need to have sex to reproduce!  But they do.  One theory i was reading says that this is how bunnies came to be associated with Easter… you know, because Jesus’ mom was a virgin, and bunnies didn’t need to lose their virginity to have offspring?  …a weird connection.

I think it’s probably more likely that bunnies and eggs were connected to spring fertility feasts/festivals that Easter assimilated… But I also read somewhere that they were symbols of passover, or that the German Christians somehow have their own way of associating bunnies with Easter…?  The internet’s FULL of ideas!

In any case, my puppy is WAY cuter than any of the creepy Easter bunnies currently circulating the internet, and I move that we start selling chocolate dogs instead of chocolate bunnies.  That is all.

Anyway, today is Good Friday.  If you aren’t a Christian, or maybe even if you are, you may think that it is strange that today is called “Good Friday” due to the fact that this is the day Christian’s remember Jesus’ brutal execution.  How can execution be good?  A quick google search shows that there are almost as many theories available as to why today is called “Good” as there are theories about why bunnies have anything to do with Easter.

Today, I remember that Jesus was killed.  I ponder why Jesus was killed.  It isn’t easy, or fun, or enjoyable… But it’s important.  and it’s good to do.  Shortest sermon ever.
