''[[http://www.dandyandcompany.com Dandy and Company]]'' is a comedy, adventure, [[NotableFurryWebcomics furry webcomic]] started in 2001 by cartoonist Derrick Fish, and a twist on the standard [[ABoyAndHisX Boy And His Dog]] story. The titular character is a sarcastic and fiercely independent [[FunnyAnimal talking dog]] who lives with his owners, the Brooks family, in the suburban area of Loudonville, Ohio.

Dandy's pranks, jabs, and outrageous antics affect the the family and basically anyone else who crosses his path, particularly their 13-year-old son Bernard, who spends most of his time at home with his dog. Dandy can be SO biting that when Fish produced a tribute strip to announce the winner of Best Comic in the annual WebComic Awards, Dandy actually cursed and slapped his butt toward the "camera" in response to his own strip not even being nominated (though, this is an extreme case). Rounding out the cast are Bernard's clueless, jaded parents Mae and George, Dandy's sometimes-girlfriend Maryweather (also a talking dog), and Dandy's younger brother, Mistake. The strip originally started as a SliceOfLife comedy with Dandy's actions being the focus, and with the start of the Beanie-Quest saga, quickly introduced a bigger universe of characters, and the more epic, action-adventure side that is inspired by {{Superhero}} and science-fiction comic books.

''Dandy and Company'' is written and drawn in the standard NewspaperComics format, and has been printed into five volumes twice, with the current print done under Lulu Press. Many elements are inspired by ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', with the art style reminiscent of the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes. Humor is comprised mostly of character quirks, BreakingTheFourthWall and frequent references to geek culture.

Announced on April 21st, 2010, that the strip will return for the last time on August 2nd... to share the final story arc of the entire webcomic.

On January 2011, however, the entire site was taken down by its host, because Derrick simply could not continue to pay the subscription from his financial issues. The URL now redirects to a makeshift ''Dandy And Company'' Blogspot page that utilizes about the same design, and he is still selling his books there. The strip is still continuing on the blog, but on an unplanned schedule. Here's hoping for the best...

!!Tropes:
* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal - Most of the furry cast, except for Maryweather, who's a HalfDressedCartoonAnimal.
* AuthorGuestSpot - Derrick makes so many appearances, while still remaining outside the storylines, that he's become somewhat of a supporting character.
* BoldInflation (though less so nowadays)
* BreakoutCharacter - Snuffles first appeared in one arc as a nameless extra in a scene where Dandy tries to escape from a pound. He has since gotten bigger and bigger parts until he became probably the most compelling character in the strip!
* BumblingDad - George
* CharacterDevelopment - Many characters undergo changes in this strip.
* CutAndPasteComic - Any time a character's pose doesn't change from panel to panel, Derrick uses this to cut down on drawing time. Fortunately, the strip is never intentionally set up with this in mind.
* DeadpanSnarker - Everyone.
* DoAnythingRobot - Mr. Fuzzy, and Mr. Fuzzy 2.0
* [[spoiler: DyingMomentOfAwesome - Snuffles]]
* FillerStrip - the annual Total Chaos Week, and Sunday's commission samples.
* FloweryElizabethanEnglish: The demon Skeezicks talks in bad pseudo-Elizabethan English. The cartoonist specifically made reference to TheMightyThor in describing his speech patterns.
* FourFingeredHands - The entire cast.
* GeniusDitz - Mistake.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Snuffles]]
* HomemadeInventions - Mistake has made, among other things, a supercollider in his basement.
* IAmYourFather - [[spoiler: Snuffles is eventually revealed to be Dandy's brother.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold - Dandy in later strips
* LoveableRogue - Dandy.
* {{Meganekko}} - Maryweather.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent - For starters, they have no human form at all.
* PutOnABus - The Muņez family.
* {{Retcon}} - The entire story of [[spoiler: Beanie-Quest I, II and III. One story even included a device that was named after the word.]]
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter - Mistake. Dandy can't stand him for this reason, so it only makes sense that Mistake's name was his doing.
* ScheduleSlip - Derrick Fish has moved, divorced, switched jobs, and found a new girlfriend through the course of the strip, which led to numerous schedule changes, hiatus's, reruns, and side material.
* SkunkStripe - Mistake gets a white streak through his hair and down his face from one of his inventions going awry.
* [[spoiler:StableTimeLoop: In the end of the second [=BeanieQuest=] story, Bernard carves a picture of the beanie myth onto a rock on the moon so aliens would find them and makes sure the beginning of the first [=BeanieQuest=] story would still happen.]]
* StripBuffer
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics - Maryweather is the only dog in the strip in the CURRENT timeline that [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal wears a shirt]], and who has human-looking hair on her head, and eyelashes. Subverted with Pumpkin, who intentionally walks around nude to protest human empowerment over animals (but also wears glasses).
* TimeyWimeyBall - ... maybe. This troper mostly just got too confused trying to figure out which form of time travel the strip uses.
* TrashTheSet - How Derrick struck the Muņez family from the strip.
* WebFirst - As said, the online strips were compiled into 5 paperback volumes twice.
* WebcomicTime - The comic has been going since 2001, but the time spent in the universe of the strip figures around 3 years, due to the 1-year TimeSkip in the middle. Gets even more confusing when you figure in the time-traveling retcons, references to 7 years of feature films that Bernard wants to see, and Fish's numerous hiatuses.
