Answer: SIRIUS ABOUT IT

(A brilliant stinky pun!  A shining example of David L. Hoyt and Jeff Knurek’s puzzling skills.  And, a great way to cap off the work week.  I’ve been noticing Mars in the southeast evening sky lately, not too far off from the moon.  I always take the time to gaze upon the cosmos, as I walk my Wally-boy at night.  I can’t really identify all that much of it, but I do have a great appreciation for all its majesty.

All of today’s clue words are old favorites again.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, with “soybs” having definitely been used before.  “Bossy” is one of those words that spells out in alphabetical order.  The 13-letter answer letter layout was a fairly cryptic jumble.  It didn’t seriously give anything away.

The clue/question’s leading nature, the cartoon’s dialog, and the quotation marks were all big clues for me.  Fortunately, I do know that SIRIUS is the “Dog Star”.  But, I did pull down ABOUT IT first.  And, that’s when I got “SIRIUS”.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
