Mary Worth 76

Okay, so I was wrong about the sofa color, but Chester is on the couch, and he does talk: "Woof." Mary is actually reading out loud to her dog. I love that Mary has managed to meddle while deferring her authority to the experts, whose pictures I presume are on the back cover of her book. Spot and Boots (of animal hospital bequest fame) are the leading dog psychology experts. They wrote the book, so to speak. Woof.

no, you were right, she does have a fuschia couch somewhere in that vortex of an apartment. or she used to. maybe moy and giella don't care because in the paper it's all b&w except for sunday...

Maybe she has some kind of a disco ball thing that makes her sofa appear in different colors. Mary is full of surprises.

Since Dr. Jeff Corey seems to be struggling with his own anxiety in competing with the dog for Mary's affection, maybe she should take him out on a leash as well. But it might be a good idea to find a book on "Boyfriend Psychology" first to be sure.

I don't usually comment on color in the daily strips for that very reason: they're usually printed in b&w. Regardless, the coloring is done by some kid using Microsoft Paint, rather than by the Master Himself, Joe Giella.
