New parents love nothing more than uploading pics of their baby onto social media, and who can blame them? I get weird feelings of pride from a particularly well-formed booger or the contents of a pimple, so if I’d somehow managed to create a whole new human being I’d want to show it off too.
But anyone can take a simple photo can’t they? When Nate Anderson’s first child Rowan came along, he decided to take it a step further and chronicle his childhood in a webcomic which he called simply ‘Boy & Dog.’
We already featured Rowan and his Golden Retriever Buddy Murphy’s adventures on Bored Panda before, but we loved them so much that we have decided to check out the latest in the series. Scroll down below to check out what they’ve been up to!
You’re Only In Trouble If You Get Caught
Anderson told Bored Panda the idea for the comic strip came after the birth of his son last year. “My life was changed by this wiggly, squishy boy that filled my home with laughter and poop. The animals didn’t know what to think of him at first, but my Golden Retriever, Murphy, decided that he was pretty cool,” he said, “Rowan loves the dog and would squeal with delight whenever Murphy was around him. I started to draw the comics to show what I imagined in my head was transpiring between them.”
Bum. Bumbum Bumbumbumbumbum
When Rowan Goes To Sleep, Murphy Thinks It’s Crazy Play Time
His Boy & Dog comics are based the conversations, situations and even some crude jokes between dog and baby. “Everything is new for the boy, and I imagined that it was the dog’s duty to teach him all about the world from a dog’s point of view,” Anderson explained.
