Clue/Question:  This dog prefers a good nap instead of adventure.  He was – – –

All 9 Chickweed Lane Rip Haywire Comics - GoComics

Answer:  BORN TO BE MILD

(Looks a little like my Wally boy!  Snores like him too.  Yeah, Wally is chubby and he likes to sleep a lot.  But he’s a good boy.  Very loyal, to me.  Downright dependent.  Sometimes he won’t even eat if I’m not in the room.  And, believe me, Wally loves to eat!  I think he thinks that we’re all dogs, and I’m the leader of the pack.  He loves my wife and daughter, but he won’t go to them unless I say:  Go to your mommy!  or Go to your sister!  And, you should hear the histrionics when we come home after leaving him for a couple of hours.  Silly dog.

All of today’s clue words have been previously entered on the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  However, it looks like every one of the jumbles is new.  I got them all very quickly.  The answer letter layout was a tremendous twelve letter jumble.  I thought it was beautifully cryptic.  But I saw the final answer immediately regardless.

Fun cartoon from today’s guest Jumbler, Dan Thompson.  I’m not familiar with RIP HAYWIRE, but it looks sorta like a send up to Buzz Sawyer, Steve Canyon, or Terry and the Pirates.  Or, maybe even The Phantom, or . . . Clutch Cargo!  I always enjoyed those silly adventure strips.  The ultimate though – and I know it’s semi historical – is Prince Valiant.  My Mom got me into that strip when I was a kid.  Her birthday was just the other day.  She would have turned 88.  Great Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
