Answer:  GNAWING AT HIM

(Who doesn’t love dogs behaving as humans???  A very cute jumble.  All of today’s clue words were old favorites, but all of their jumbles came up as new.  My eyes weren’t focusing well this morning and YINRA kept looking like VINRA for a few seconds.  So, it took me a few looks to get “rainy”.  The answer letter layout was very good, but, due to the clue/question, I figured the last two words were AT HIM.  And GNAWING made the pun!  The cartoon was MGM and Warner Bros caliber.  Lots of fun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
