Happy 5th birthday to my baby girl, Marvel.
It is stupid to say a dog is my rock, but here we are.
She helps me get through things that have been really hard for me, like sobriety and the death of my mom; she sits on my lap when I’m drawing characters and writing stories, only occasionally giving me notes but overall being very supportive; she’s the clear inspiration behind Theia; and she’s just a clear inspiration all-around.
On those days when I feel like I’m an awful, no-good, terrible person, of which there are many, she is the only convincing argument that I am not.
Also, at this point, my dog has lasted longer than the Confederacy, so if we want to build statues dedicated to something worthwhile and full of goodness, may I recommend this adorable creature.
Happy birthday baby girl, little puppy, sushi dog. May you live forever (and may I go John Wick against whatever stands in the way of that noble goal).
