#308 – must be nice

I think we’ve turned into a full-scale dog comic. With that in mind, I’m pleased to tell you about the new T-shirt that’s fresh off the printers:

oh my god

Inspired by this comic right here, where Eve champions the concept of puppy chasing.

No pre-orders for this one — it’s shipping NOW! So order one today at the Topatoco store and you will be looking sharp in no time.

    oh no!!!!!

  2. Tomfox says:

    I knew it was only a matter of time before some unfortunate event befell that dog. It's not that I think Hanna to be incapable of caring for the animal, but come on! That dog was doomed from the start!

  3. George Rohac says:

    Snowy can't be dead unless Mer forgot to draw the leash being drawn tight from him hanging himself by jumping down the hole. Which I don't think is something Mer would do.

  4. Steve says:

    Ugh, I knew something way going to happen to the dog, but I can't abide no dog tragedies! Hurt a person if you must, just not a dog! :(

  5. Musical_Chair says:

    That is the greatest variation in length I've ever seen from a leash unless snowy's collar just came off.

  6. MerchManDan says:

    Yup, it's a dogs life for me too. Minus the eating of feline droppings.

  7. Ben Rankel says:

    Unless it's a magical leash? No? Ok, never mind then.

  8. D says:

    She's fishing for sewer-crocs.

  9. Gerard says:

    She thinks she's a teenage mutant ninja turtle.

  10. mike r baker says:

    Dog is stuck, Hanna calls the fire department, and then the whole thing gets televised!

  11. CJ says:

    Meredith Gran, are you going to make me depressed? Are you? I think you are.

  12. Ron says:

    Am I the only one who found this funny?

  13. ai369 says:

    Uhm… my little guy shares snowy's disgusting habits. My bet is he's down the sewer…

  14. Lily says:

    Snowy no!!!

  15. SP says:

    Will you have any of those shirts at Comic Con…? I may have to get myself one…

  16. Nestor says:

    Snowy's dead baby, Snowy's dead.

  17. Nyarlathotep says:

    I can't wait for Hanna 'N' Snowy's Sewer Adventures™!!!!

  18. Silarial says:

    Please don't kill off the dog, it will break my heart. x_x

  19. danineteen says:

    Oh no… OH NO!!

  20. fish8915 says:

    nawww god love her, Hanna's so cut =(

    and Snowy is ummm… not dead I hope

  21. ladymercury says:

    Death does not occur in the world of OctoPie. Snowy is fine, just misplaced. And Hanna will soon adopt him as her Zen teacher, just like Marek and the duck.

  22. David Waltergart says:


    (Sorry, see Interpol's "Turn on the bright lights" album, the song "Stella was a diver").

    Don't let this turn into a tour of NY sewers… oh who am I kidding, do it!

  23. Abel Boddy says:

    The timing on Panels 7-9 are fantastic

  24. John K says:

    that would totally suck if snowy is dead.

  25. Well done, Hannah was so into self-pity to notice anything going on and the worst thing ever happened.

    I can hardly wait to see the consequences.

    This is a family webcomic, Snowy will be alright, dogs are always alright.

  27. D says:

    Guys guys guys.

    The dog likes to eat poop. What better place to find poop than a sewer, huh? /HUH/?

  28. Almost Literally says:

    I think the collar came off.

    I hope.

    Panel Eight <3 See you guys? Hanna DOES care about others! I could see her as a dog person. Maybe. Probably just a duck person.

  29. Almost Literally says:

    Also, that shirt, so amazing. Definitely buying.

  30. nalem says:

    Oh fuck.


  31. brashieel says:

    Believe I'll add my voice to the chorus…


    I've had too many real dogs die this year. At least let the fictional ones be alright.

  32. Amoureuse says:

    Oh my god ! I need such a tshirt !

  33. Topical information I just found out the other day: You know which animal DOES worry about the future, besides humans? OCTOPUSES. They've been seen carrying coconut shells with them in case they need a hiding place. No octopus pie for me please. 😡
