Clue/Question:  The new bakery specialized in these.


(Great all-around Jumble.  Well-scrambled clue words.  Great answer letter layout.  A great cartoon, with two clues.  And, a punny answer!  None of the clue words seemed new, but the scramblings did.  The backwards name in the window is:  “Kay Niene’s Bakery”, and the baker’s patter sounds like it’s straight out of a dog food commercial.  In my estimation, the CANINE on the leash appears to be a Westie, AKA – or is it AKC – a West Highland White Terrier.  Cute little buggers.  They look like toys, to me.  I can tolerate small dogs, as long as they’re not too yappy.  My preference is for retrievers, setters, and mid to large sized mutts.  What I don’t get, is that it seems the smaller the dog, the bigger it’s price tag.  Dog breeding has largely become, unfortunately, kind of a shady business these days, anyways.  In the long run, I think you’re better off adopting/rescuing a handsome mutt from the pound.  They’re usually smarter, with less health problems.  Over breeding tends to make purebreds dopier and weaker.  Mutts are also usually more appreciative and loyal.  Also, they’re not as picky eaters.  With a good mutt you can save on the dog, and save on having to install an alarm system!  Be well and do good, friends.  Don’t forget to spay or neuter your pets.)   —   YUR

    You nailed it with the Westie. That would be my first dog, “Muffin”. I love Westie’s. Now I have a Chaweenie, Gizmo. And boy is he cute. I think he’s getting a sister this week. He’s bored to death during the day now that the kids are in school. I’ve got Jumbles to draw and can’t be playing fetch all day.

    Cannine Bakery! Westie! I just loved the hints but did not get them until YUR pointed them out! I did this puzzle quickly and ran off to play golf, but I usually love staring at the drawing for more info! As for Westies, oh, so cute! Our friend has one, and he is just so friendly and fun! I’m afraid of most big dogs, YUR, but I do love yellow labs!

    You couldn’t possibly be afraid of my Ginger. She’s a big Golden Retriever, but she thinks she’s a lap dog. She’s always got a big smile on her face, and loves to be pet and played with. Funniest, big baby I’ve ever seen.
