Do you ever notice that there are a lot of animal stories on the news? Bears that dance, dogs that dress up, or ride motorcycles, very fat and fluffy cats, and lots of squirrels. Squirrels seem to make the news a lot. Water skiing squirrels, squirrels who wear hats... etc. If you think I'm kidding, I'm not.

On skis?

In a hat?

Today, cartoonist Nick McMullin is expanding on that theme in his NEWS TO ME cartoon. In it, Doug seems to be touched by a nice little story of a squirrel who does his own taxes. It's possible, right?

Have a great weekend!
