    And what Dr Mick (2) said. Bless you, Primo Cane Sulla Luna.

    Heh, Dog said freckle. Rude.

    I may be a bit teary tomorrow, so I’ll just say now that discovering Firsty on here and marvelling at his consistent daily brilliance, and then becoming a member of the Dogonaut Lounge (the nicest thread on the whole internet) has been the highlight of a lifetime of consuming media.

    Thanks for everything FDOTM. You are the best, and I will miss you.
    But I will also miss the wonderfully intelligent, funny, and thought-provoking comments written by the loyal Dogonaut Lounge people. I salute all of you!

    Argh! My favourite bit of the day is the FDOTM cartoon. That is why I subscribed in the first place (absolutely true)! Anyway, guess I will keep reading Crikey – there are other good bits, but Dog you will be sorely missed.

    the sooner these shooters are treated like smokers (do this inside your own home only, preferably with mirror) the better and safer for all ducks and everyone else.

    Didn’t know you wre going dog#1 – big crikey loss – big Grauniad gain. See you there – and thanks for all the tail-wags to date

    The Guardian – congratulations!

    yes indeedy emc – this has been the only lounge I have frequented too. Hopefully the seats are as comfy for cats over there.

    I’m slow on the uptake having only just read the news about you leaving, Firsty. Doggone! Are you still harbouring a grudge about that time the Crikey Editor turned off the cricket?

    Your excellent ‘tooning has often been the highlight of the day…not to mention the banter with fellow Dogonauts. Here’s hoping the new mob give you a comfy kennel in a north facing spot.

    Hmmm…some ducks fly the coop.

    Bloody Hell FD! Wot Crispy, drm & emc said x10^n. I hope that the Grauniad is tempting you from the Dogonaut Lounge with large amounts of filthy lucre plus unlimited tea and single malts, ’cause otherwise we shall all go and lie down on Crikey’s virtual steps in imitation of Sven the disguised freckled duck. No pasarán!
