I do appreciate all the readers who wrote in to offer us sympathies on the loss of our little white ferret Alaska. One reader suggested that the symptoms were in line with pancreatic tumors, which sounds as plausible to me as anything. The other ferret Ginger was checked out on Saturday, and to no one’s surprise, she was diagnosed as old. She was put on antibiotics for an irritated throat and the doctor confirmed that she is in fact mostly blind. Still active as ever though. In other news, this weekend was the Comicard Convention at the Seattle Center. The traffic wasn’t overwhelming but it wasn’t a waste to go either, as we not only sold some books but also sold one of Scott’s largest original pieces. With so much time on my hands I got some strips written and met some new creators.
