How to train your kids. Oops, I mean your puppy.

From Gracie’s backpack:

In case you can’t read it, it says: How to train your puppy.

First, Let your puppy get to know you. Let him smell your hand. [Picture of Giraffe/dog hybrid saying “sniff sniff…” Aw, a love of ellipses!]

Then, do not yell at him when you say no you might sacre [sic] him or her say “no” firmly deep. [Uh…do not psychoanalyze this panel. It’s just that’s she’s brillaint. Ahem. Instead look at the pictures! The yelling picture has exclamation points – excellent use of punctuation again! That picture also has a pointy finger on the girl(?). I also love her use of “him or her” – well, the second time at least.]

Finally after your puppy these steps give him or her a reward as a treat. [Possibly my favorite panel: Notice the dog’s mouth wiiiiide open as it eats the spectacularly drawn biscuit. Priceless. True story: both Gracie and Bee’s mouths unhinge like that for chocolate after they’ve done something right. Er….not for rewards per se…we call them “snacks.” Or something.]

    A+! I live the shoe laces =0] Do you know what she was learning that required this assignment? Steps and directions or was it the punctuation?
