Strip by: Sir Bacon

{Odie and Garfield are sitting on a tree branch, Jon is standing beneath them}
Jon: Odie! Dogs can't climb trees!
Jon: Except for Catahoula leopard dogs.
Jon: But you're just an average mutt.

The author writes:

When I learned of Catahoula leopard dogs and their tree-climbing abilities (via a Cracked.com article titled "6 Dog Breeds With Secret Superpowers"), I was reminded of this old "dogs can't climb trees" strip.

I briefly entertained the notion that Odie might be a Catahoula leopard dog himself, but ultimately decided against that.
