Marmaduke (1/10/11)

I don’t know why, but seeing the inside of Marmaduke’s dog house creeps me out. Maybe it’s the dark shading on the walls and ceiling. Maybe it’s the curly-haired doll with the bugged-out, vertiginous eyes. Who knows, it might just be the simple fact that a Great Dane is hoarding (and no doubt defiling) a family’s Christmas presents. But I suspect the reason I’m weirded out has more to do with my expectations of comic strip dog houses. Take Snoopy’s dog house, for example; it functioned as everything from an airplane to a bachelor pad and the fact that we never saw inside just made it that much more interesting. Marmaduke’s dog house, on the other hand, turns out to be nothing more than a few dingy planks of wood.
