Comic: Buckles 4/5
Oh, and by the way, I also forgot to mention the recurring gag involving Paul\'s lawn mower, which he calls a female.

Like I said, this comic is special to me.
Comic: Buckles 4/5
I forgot to mention Irene, Buckles\' \"girlfriend\" who appears to be a fire hydrant, the dog leash gag, and the dog haiku/idioms strips. Then again, this strip is familiar to me.
Comic: Buckles 4/5
This is the strip that was special to me. David Gilbert is the most special newspaper cartoonist I\'ve ever heard of. The strip is about the main character named Buckles, an anthropomorphic dog, and his relationship with his owners named Paul and Jill. Paul and Jill love him very much, but all that bad dog could ever do is ruin their property (eating garbage, lying on the couch, chewing valuable pieces of clothing, TV remotes, DVDs, and others and burying them in the backyard, digging holes in the yard, rolling in the ground, stealing their food, etc.) which Paul/Jill found very disrespectful, so they either chain him up or punish him in the garage. This gag is similar to \"Marley and Me,\" but it\'s too simple for a comic strip.

Additional characters in this strip include Arden, Buckles\' bird friend who he almost got along with; Flea, an unseen character who can be heard in Buckles\' right ear and gives him advice; Lester, Buckles\' crippled dog friend who likes to chase cars; Christina, Jill\'s five-year-old niece who likes to dress Buckles up and serve him tea parties; Rusty, Buckles\' dog friend whom he always go out to eat garbage; Scrappy, a rude squirrel who always gives Buckles and Arden a hard time; and Paperboy, a young newspaper deliverer and one of Buckles\' human rivals. The comic has minor characters too, like Charlie, one of the naughty geese out there; Scrappy\'s enemy who was a black squirrel; Sophie and Iris, two female dog characters in the comic; and Paul\'s parents, who only appear in the stories about Buckles and his owners\' summer vacations.

A few recurring gags are involved in the comic, like Buckles\' attempts at attacking Paul\'s vacuum cleaners, the Dog Owners\' Monthly magazine, dog commands, Buckles\' imaginative alter egos like The Carnivore and Captain Canine, etc.

I used to be a fan of this comic, but now I thought it\'s okay, although it\'s still special. I first read Buckles online as a third grader, and I was reminded of the two Disney films \"One Hundred and One Dalmatians\" and \"The Sword in the Stone.\" The art style is fluid for a modern-day newspaper comic strip, the characters are interesting, the storylines are a little stunning, and the dialogue is a bit simple but good. This is the most sketchy comic I\'ve ever seen.

I\'ve been using David Gilbert\'s art style when I put an effort into improving my drawing style and making it look better ever since his comic wasn\'t that popular but was to me. The character designs are special though sometimes they\'re simplistic. My drawing style is based on Gilbert\'s. I love and respect him for inspiring me to draw better.

Buckles is an okay but special strip in my life, and it still is.
