Summary
Here is love in all its many guises. The Dog - aka the Scarlett Manuka, the Iron Paw, The Grey Ghost - shows his soft side and presents the many love stories of Footrot Flats. There is Wal Footrot's ongoing romance with Cheeky Hobson (of which The Dog most definitely does not approve); there is Cooch Windgrass's undying love for his cousin Kathy, Rangi Jones' many crushes, and then there are the movre 'biologically' driven romances of Dolores the pig, Cecil the ram, Pew the Magpie, and the Goat. The Dog and Jess fall somewhere in between; the Scarlett Manuka can never accept that he is ruled by mere biological urges and holds that he is somewhat of a Don Juan, a great romancer, although one who is frequently confounded by the bitch's box. 'Luv from Dog' presents a selection of Murray Ball's cartoon strips and standalone images from the 'Footrot Flats' books which were produced between 1978 and 1990. These, in turn, were collections of some 6000 strips which appeared weekly in newspapers around the world from 1975 onwards. Romances come and go. But when man suffers the scorn of a scented seductress, the pain of parting, the ache of a lonely heart, when he's bursting with shame, humiliation and jealousy, where can he turn? To his best friend, of course: his dog
