A Wonderful Day With Kids And Dogs In Tennessee! February 27th, 2010

My thanks to George Wallace, who took these photos and was the event photographer. I had a great time drawing pictures of DOGGS, Nancy, Bugs Bunny and so many other cartoons I hadn't even THOUGHT about drawing until a child asks me to....handing out gorgeous photos of Rin-Tin-Tin to some of his legion of fans....meeting so many nice people, making a nice piece of change to support the great work of New Leash On Life...and hanging out with Jessie. That dog that had me wrapped around his paw today.

Time Out From Doggs for A Frog, A Pig, and A Bear.....

Found this old PR Shot for our MUPPETS Comic Strip Brochure taken in 1981 at the Brownstone on East 69th where Jim had his office. That's me...oh my gosh is it really??? at the "board" and my brother Brad standing. You know the frog, the diva, and the bear. They tossed strips everywhere across a drafting table in the basement workshop to make it look like I was working. Heck. My studio in the garage was messier than that. Those files in the background, I think I remember, were parts like buttons and yarn and things like that to build the puppets.Those Oldies But Goodies...reminds me of-f-f-f-f-f-......Youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.......

TODAY'S DOGG By Guy Gilchrist February 23, 2010

A little racing action for you today. As you can see, our Dogg doesn't play favorites.
NASCAR has started....the Sundays are exciting! I'm looking forward to getting over to Bristol this year!
I've been enjoying doing the theme weeks, and I hope you've been digging em , too. I'm going to run a week of non-theme shots...because I have so many!!!
 I'm starting to get orders to run Today's Dogg in some newspapers! I'll let you know which ones as soon as the ink is dry on the Alpo Bag. That's how we write up our contracts here. Copule of pieces of jerky...shake hands..and to get realllll official.... sign an Alpo bag. Lawyers. Humph.
 Starting from the first dollar we make, selling the comic any way we websites, newspapers, anywhere..a percentage will go to helping our Dogs. That's how this operation  works. Don't get me wrong......I love money. Love it. So does my agent...and so do all the companies and individuals that we will work with. Hecck, if YOU didn't love'd be paypaling me a hundred bucks a chuckle just because the comic is so funny! BTW..That works for me. Just throwin' that out there. I also accept cash. But...I also LOVE animals. Dogs, Cats. All creatures great and small. I do. And that is what this is all about.
I've made alot of product for the biggest names in Show Biz, and I love doing it. But...this one is different. I want this HUGE! And with a HUGE Charitable Heart. So far...I have heard from many folks who need money....and only a couple offering to help us MAKE some. I know. That's how this goes. I'll help all I can...and i can use your help, too.
 So..if you have a product line, or anything you want to ask me about with Today's Dogg...I'm listening. If you have a little community paper, and ask them to run You can contact me right through this email at the blog. Look...I 've been with the biggest character licensing in the world. I know how it works...and I want to do something special here. Man! I love drawing DOGGS!
 And thank you, (speaking of biggest licensing characters in the world....and most loved.).. thank you to Rin-Tin-Tin for your endorsement!!! Rinny: I'm 10 with a bowl of cereal in front of our old black and white Admiral...on a braided rug....with a comic book, and a Tony The Tiger spoon...and I'm eating those big Shredded Wheat...and mom warmed the milk and put sugar on the, and Bullet...and Roy, The Lone Ranger and Sky King and Lassie....I loved you. I still do. BTW...The current Official Rin-Tin-Tin, trained and bred by Miss Daphne,(The Bloodline is strong and so, so furry, friendly, and everything you ever dreamed Rinny was...) and I will be doing a joint appearance in Danville, Ill! April 10th! How cool is that? I am so blessed. More on that later...
 The weirdness of  life is a beautiful, strange and delicate thing. Who knew? Dog Cartoons...?

Teaming Up With Local Animal Group...This Saturday!

I'll be out  drawing Pictures, and signing Cartoons and  hanging with everybody this Saturday at the Spay Station Celebration in Lebanon, TN. This is a real cool operation. A Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic that travels all over Tennessee. You get to decide what if any donation you'll make to the cause, and I'll draw Doggs and stuff. Sound like a good deal?The place is Wilson Hyundai...I hope I just spelled that right...and the link to the information is to the left where our links and gadgets are. There are tons of fun stuff for the's a whole holiday doggie hullaballoo. I'll get there just after Noon. The whole thing kicks off at 11 am. OH! Just in!! Gimme a "DateLineHollywood... Tic tic Tic"... Rin-Tin-Tin, famous Movie and TV Star that he is... is sending Official Hollywood Photos of his famous self, and we'll be handing those out for a donation you decide, too!

TODAY'S DOGG By Guy Gilchrist (The Games Continue!) Feb 22, 2010

Just a note to those in Nashville....thank you so much for coming out to my concert tonight, and applauding "Today's Dogg"! I am amazed at the friendship and support the feature has. It was a blast drawing cartoon doggs for y'all! Oh...and the singing and playing was fun, too!
God bless you....and our DOGGS.

We Have Been Endorsed By Rin-Tin-Tin. For Real.

You know...sometimes it's okay, I have learned over my smile and just accept something....a award...a compliment....and feel good about it. I KNOW!!! That goes against all our upbringing...guilt...why me...don't pick me...etc. But ..this is cool. and I'm going to not only enjoy it. myself...I'm going to aw shucks a little...and I am going to share it with all of you who love dogs. And love TODAY'S DOGG.  Because you are the ones who keep telling me to keep writing and drawing these.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.I'm a child of the 50s and 60s and grew up loving Rin-Tin-Tin and all he embodied.....Courage. True Blue Loyalty. Faithfulness. You have made my day...I am usually the one in charge of  helping folks smile...with my cartoons and all....but...Miss Daphne, the Owner and Breeder...and gave me the smile this time.

visit Rin Tin Tin's Home

Some DOGG Paintings from the DOGG Archives!!

The first is called "Scary Movie".....
 These others: A CloseUp Detail from "Christmas Pug".....and "Sandy and The Kitchen Garbage Pail".
So much fun! Dogs bring such a smile to my face when I draw them. Doing TODAY'S DOGG is just one of the happiest things I've ever worked on....and I'm hoping I'll be able to draw these for the rest my life.

TODAY'S DOGG By Guy(Country Bumpkin)Gilchrist February 19, 2010

Just did a surprise last minute songwriters round with good friend, Jimmy Payne(Woman, Woman by Gary Puckett) and Don Wayne(Saginaw, Mi., Country Bumpkin, Belles of Southern Bell) and what a treat! An "only in Nashville" night! Anyway...adding to the coolness of the night was that all the folks around the bar are readers of Today's Dogg online! That was so cool. I'm used to readers of NANCY...and other things I've done and do...but The DOGG is still so new. Anyway. It's because we all love dogs. That's why this works.
OH...I'll be over singing again at The Commodore on Sunday Night if you're in the Nashville area...and I have a cool Dogg Cartoon Signing coming up on the 27th! More on that later.'ll be a benefit for dogs in Lebanon TN. You can keep up with dates for me and what goes on by reading my schedule on my FB Profile Page. Or in case someone wants to know!
Here's to our DOGGS!!!! And you...who love them!

More of The DOGG Winter Games!

Style points?

I'm enjoying the games! I pretty much keep them on most of the day as I am inking my comics. I watch whatever events are on...and pull for the USA. I also pull for Canada quite a bit ( if the USA is out of it) because my girlfriend's family are Canadians, eh. I, of course, spend my mornings in the quiet....the quieter, the that is when I get my writing for Today's Dogg, Nancy, and song ideas going.....hopefully! You never know. Ideas come ,go,and fade away so quickly....I have to catch them when I can. I am so grateful that you are enjoying the DOGG !

About ten years ago, i signed autographs and drew cartoons next to Jon Provost (Timmy) at a Boston Con. Great guy. And, yes...Lassie WAS all that and a bag of chips.

TODAY'S DOG By Guy Gilchrist February 15, 2010

I don't know if YOU know any N.A.I.D.s, but I have one in my life. They are some of the wackiest dogs you'll ever know. My model here is of our dogs.
Just got back from Tampa, where it was a lot colder than I hoped it would be. I know...Florida while the whole country is snowbound. Yeah. poor me. We did an outdoor concert , and it  benefitted the Angelus Home in Hudson, Fla. Beautiful, beautiful kids...severely challenged. I've been with the cause now for 16 years. All the performers were terrific, and we have never been treated better. I'll be posting some photos, etc on my personal art and music FB page, as well as in a couple days.

I got to see my friend, Aaron Kelly on American Idol....he's in Hollywood now. Aaron is an awesome talent. Just 16. I think I've known him since he was....6 or 7.....9?  a while! Gosh...getting old. I remember 3rd grade and not two weeks ago....sang with him last December. Great kid! Awesome story..great, great voice, and a big heart..... Pullin' for you, Aaron! Good things should happen to good people like Aaron.
Enjoying the Oympics? I am... Always do....but two things....what's up with our American Skiers and their uniforms? They look like they're doing freestyle in their jammies.
And "Blades Of Glory" with Will Ferrell , I believe, has ruined Pairs Skating for me forever.

March 4th at 8:30 est I will be interviewed by the guys at
about Today's DOG as  well as all things comic and musical ........they take questions from listeners and I understand it is very interactive, so I hope you'll get in on that show!
Hope you're enjoying THE DOGS......please tell everyone you know! We're so glad to be a part of your lives. Here's to those DOGS! Love and Laughter on four paws....

TODAY'S DOG By Guy(Abbott and Costello))Gilchrist February 12,2010

Oh.........don't get on me for being we say here in Doggieland. I hope you realize, in case you  are offended by this gag, you will understand that in due time,I'm sure I will offend pretty much everybody. The joke wasn't about was HOW could I get a doggie drivin' and the guy in the sidecar!?? I thought about sidecars...and Lou and Bud...and Stan and Ollie.....all those SIDE CAR gags, miss those guys.
Now..that stuff was funny. I don't care who you are.....and today's song for the road.........
"I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin' about half past dead;
I just need some place where I can lay my head.
"Hey, mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
He just grinned and shook my hand, and "No!", was all he said.

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free;
Take a load off Fanny, And (and) (and) you can put the load right on me.

I picked up my bag, I went lookin' for a place to hide;
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side.
I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on, let's go downtown."
She said, "I gotta go, but m'friend can stick around."


Go down, Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
It's just ol' Luke, and Luke's waitin' on the Judgement Day.
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favor, son, woncha stay an' keep Anna Lee company?"


Crazy Chester followed me, and he caught me in the fog.
He said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack, my dog."
I said, "Wait a minute, Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man."
He said, "That's okay, boy, won't you feed him when you can."
......................wanna finish it???? God bless you. I'm going to be posting two on Friday for the weekend. I've got a singing gig in Tampa. God bless you, all you do, our dogs, and all we do for them because of all they are to us. Oh...did you say HI to Buddy?
