Otto from Beetle Bailey
Sarge’s canine sidekick first appeared in 1956 but didn’t get a regulation Army uniform until 1969.
Daisy from Blondie
Lovable, gentle Daisy is often pictured snuggling on the couch or lazing at the feet of her owners, Blondie and Dagwood Bumstead.
Bleeker the Rechargeable Dog
Bleeker is a different breed of dog altogether. He can play fetch and do tricks like any other dog … but only after an eight-hour charge.
Buckles, displays all the charm, innocence, naivete and cunning of a small child discovering how to find his way through life.
Ruff from Dennis the Menace
Ruff is Dennis's ungainly but amiable canine of uncertain ancestry whose characteristics include large paws, stringy ears and lots of long hair.
Barfy from Family Circus
Barfy (named by the kids, of course) follows the family around and keeps fellow household animals Sam and Kittycat company.
Sam from Family Circus
Sam, a rescued stray, also follows the kids around and keeps up with fellow household animals Barfy and Kittycat company.
Snert from Hägar the Horrible
Hägar's dog is as rumpled and harassed as his Viking owner.
Smiley from Hazel
Smiley is the kids' spoiled-rotten St. Bernard.
Dusty from Henry
Henry’s loveable and quiet animal companion.
Dawg from Hi and Lois
This fun-loving family pet does his best to add to the general chaos of the Flagston family life.
Andy from Mark Trail
Mark's favorite wilderness companion is Rusty's best friend, too. In true St. Bernard tradition, Andy has rescued Mark from danger on many occasions!
Bitsy from Marvin
The family mutt “tolerates” Marvin and considers him to be his intellectual inferior.
Junior from Marvin
Grandma and Grandpa’s plant-chewing, trash-dumping, mail-carrier-chasing, angry little Schnauzer.
Bowser from Moose and Molly
Bowser is supposed to be the family watchdog, but the only thing he watches for is breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Grimmy from Mother Goose & Grimm
Grimmy believes that garbage cans are a personal invitation to a nine-course banquet, the primary function of a car is to be chased, and toilets are large, convenient water bowls.
Earl from Mutts
Earl is a small mutt with a big heart, who cheerfully tugs at the leash on the walk of life. He is Mooch’s innocent friend, as well as a witness to and reluctant participant in his antics.
Stripe from Tiger
Named by Punkinhead because he has "round stripes" (more commonly known as spots). Every kid needs a faithful dog by his side.
Yip Yip Hooray!
