Added DiffLines:

* BridgeLogic: In one strip, the Dog attempts to avoid one of the Murphy's crocopigs by pushing over a tree to allow him to cross the river. However, the dead sapling he pushes over is both far too short to reach the over bank and far too spindly to support his weight.

--->''[[KnowWhenToFoldEm Wal's no fool]].''

Added DiffLines:

* UncattyResemblance: Most noticeable when the Dog goes to a dog show and sees heaps of dogs who resemble their owners. Although the Dog doesn't resemble Wal at all, there ''is'' a degree of resemblance between Wal and Major the pig dog (possibly coincidental) and also between the 3 Murphys and their dogs Tiger, Wolf and Cream Puff.

* TheNotCatch: The Dog notices Wal slipping off the hayshed roof and desperately runs underneath him to catch him. Then at the last second he realizes that [[OhCrap he's just a little dog and Wal is a beefy adult man weighing at least 90kg]] and leaps out of the way just in time to avoid being crushed with the sheepish excuse "Missed...".
