A well-drawn, lively strip with a clever premise, William F. Marriner's Wags, the Dog That Adopted a Man has a lot going for it! It tells the story of an unassuming fellow who's shadowed relentlessly by a little dog with a can tied to its tail. This causes the fellow endless trouble, as the dog manages to disrupt every social setting to which he's introduced. The strips alternate between a "What? That's not my dog who's wrecking the place" schtick and the gentleman's (ofttimes cruel!) attempts to divest himself of this unwanted pet.
