We love British cartoonist Rupert Fawcett’s Off the Leash comics, which lovingly lampoon our relationships with our canine family members. To celebrate the U.S. publication of the first Off the Leash collection, Fawcett has created a special series for the Petfinder Foundation, illustrating his support for their advocacy on animal rescue and responsible pet ownership. Best of all, he’s offering Petfinder Foundation fans the chance to win a unique signed print of one of them. Enter the sweepstakes here; no purchase is necessary.
Fawcett became a professional cartoonist almost by accident when in 1989, while doodling, he drew a bald man in suspenders and carpet slippers and called him Fred. The Fred cartoons went on to be syndicated in the Mail on Sunday and published in several books. Off the Leash is his latest creation.
Originally launched on Facebook, the charming and heartfelt Off the Leash cartoons have developed a huge worldwide following. The new book brings together the very best of those cartoons, which feature the secret thoughts and conversations of the dogs who share our homes and lives. The book hits stores on Oct. 14.
