Strip by: Muchacho1994

SFX: crunch crunch crunch
{Odie chews on a cockroach he found as he reads today's Ask a Dog submission:}
Letter: Dear Ask a Dog, have you ever eaten a bug? —Anon-e-moose
{Odie puts down the letter and appears to have the realization that he is being watched— er, read. Oh, no! He's eating a bug right now! His reputation is ruined!}
SFX: crun—
Odie: !
{Wait! Don't panic! Maybe no one saw yet. It's not too late. He quickly swallows the insect...}
Odie: GULP
{...and firmly shakes his head, confident that the reader thinks he is far too sophisticated to eat bugs}

The author writes:

The idea for this submission originated when I first saw today's (as of writing) strip and realized that it could work just as well without Garfield. I hastily redrew it this morning, using 1993-06-06 as a reference for one of the panels.

Someday, I would like to see an arc where Garfield goes to a cat spa or something for a month just so we can see how all the secondary characters interact with each other.

Original strip: 2020-04-01.
