Woof woof!

Strip by: Andrew Coker

T-Rex: How much is that...
T-Rex: DOGGY IN THE WINDOW?
Dromiceiomimus: The one with the waggily tail?
Utahraptor: It's $340.
T-Rex: Oh.
T-Rex: I'm not THAT hungry.

The author writes:

The tune for this song is on old folk song called Carnival of Venice, which seems to have existed since at least around 1700. The "doggy" lyrics were written in 1952, and Patti Page released a recording of it in 1953, which became a number 1 hit in the USA and Australia. Not bad for a 250-year old tune.
