Answer:  DOGGONEIT

(Wow!  This one was tough.  Not the answer, maybe, but the clue words were beautifully cryptic.  The only one I got right away was “again”.  It took a few whacks for me to get “omega”.  And, I couldn’t get either “disown” or “entomb”.  I have to admit I was a little lazy.  I didn’t even attempt to write out letter combinations.  I looked to the cartoon, figured out the answer, then came back and backed into the two six-letter words.  All four of the clue words were new jumbles, for me.  And, “entomb” is a brand new clue word.  Our good friend, ralis95, can add it to his clue word database.  There was nothing obvious in the answer letter layout.  It was a great jumble in its own right.  The cartoon is a hoot!  I love goldens!  They have got to be the friendliest dogs on the planet!  At least with people.  With other dogs it can be hit or miss.  I’ve got one like the one on the right.  The burnt orange ones are generally larger than the blondies.  But, they’re both beautiful dogs.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Rest in peace, Ruby Dee!  You were a splendid actress and a real champion of civil rights!  I had no idea you were over 91 years old.  I might have guessed early 80s.  You will be both missed and fondly remembered.   —   YUR

When the sun is shining I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome.”   —   Wilma Rudolph

 

(A great, great athlete, who knew a little something about overcoming difficulties!  I wonder if Winston Groom was inspired by Wilma Rudolph when he came up with the character of Forrest Gump?  I wouldn’t be surprised.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
