Watching Corgis argue reminds me of kids playing with those Rock ’Em Sock ’Em Robots or Hungry Hungry Hippos for some reason. It really has to be seen be appreciated. Golden F. tried her best to capture that in the background with that first panel. Do you enjoy background gags? Those little things going on that we notice but the main characters overlook. Do you have a favourite example?

That video is amazing and my year is already better for having seen it XD

Always enjoy a good background gag. Favourite example of one? One I always snicker at is what Eezo does to Shepard while Jack is talking at the apartment during the Citadel DLC of Mass Effect 3.

Also, I will never NOT laugh at what happens to Claptrap in the background on the main menu screens for Borderlands 2.

Awww, that last panel is so sweet. I think its the first time we've seen Junior calm.

I love background gags, personally. It adds a fun flair. My Hero Academia has come cute ones but I think my favorite is from How I Met Your Mother. In the background of the group talking at the bar, a couple meet, gets married, has a baby, and than a funeral. Their whole lives just randomly playing out and I really enjoyed that.

So is therapy dog legally distinct from therapist in this world?

Probably not. It's just a silly dog pun.
