Cartoon Version of my Dog Mario Peso and his 1st comics strip
Peso Comics is in tagalog (Filipino)
Why I want him in a comics
Because Peso is a very special dog, A Philippine Local Dog that has a bratty character. He is so clever that living my life with him everyday is like an adventure in a movie, full of action and laughter. It was a dream to have him in a comic strip, as a way to promote love for this breed of dog that is often the victim of human abuse.
Peso was six years old when I asked my Artist friend to at least come up with a very short comics story where Peso will be the lead star. I just sent him Peso's photo in almost all angles, and since I can't think of story at that time, my friend initiated to do everything, and he just showed me the finished product.
Mga Kwento ni Peso means
It is called Mga Kwento ni Peso or Peso's Stories. The series will be highlighting the everyday life of a Philippine Local Dog or ASPIN or Asong Pinoy (Philippine dog), who is so pampered by his human that he acted so bratty and naughty but looks so funny when scared. This is our first series and I am still thinking if a follow up is possible.
For the meantime I would to share the first series, and I hope fellow dog lovers will like this.
One Sunny Day
One Sunny afternoon while waiting for Big Sis Cel, Mario Peso decided to stroll even though he was told that it is forbidden to go out without Human companion. Naughty Peso walked happily when suddenly he smelled something interesting and quite yummy?
He wanted to know where that smell came from
When he was sure where the scent came from, adventurous Peso ran thinking that other dogs might find it before him, so he walks, ran, he walks until he came to the place where the scent came from
And he found it
and he found a big bone partly stuck up on land. He thought "ohh Jackpot....Big sis always said bones are bad for me, now finally"..
He got it but
Without reservation or second thoughts, Naughty Mario Peso grabbed the bone right away, but he realized it was deeply stuck in the soil, and he can't get it in one strong pull using his mouth..
He digs and digs and digs
He digged the soil to get the bone freely, Peso is a very impatient dog that he digged exagerrately.......
Shock of his life
Digging to much made him realized what he just digged accidentally.....
in Comics Everything is possible
so Mario Peso accidentally digged a still intact Dinasour skeleton...
What is the artist's explanation why Peso was dressed up like a little boy in his comics strip?My friend told me he based it on me, on my fondness about my dog. whenever I tell stories about his cleverness. His imagination is telling him that Peso is like a younger brother to me..
This is enough for now, hope to see you on his 2nd series of his comics strips.
By the way this was never published in newspaper or magazines, Peso's comics series is for my own personal entertainment...
