We are hardly back from the disaster of Portland, when we are off to another adventure, this one featuring Cherry and her pop, Doc Davis. Well, we (that is to say, I) have been wondering when Rivera would get around to giving Doc more story time, and this might be that time. In vintage Mark Trail I believe Doc was retired, which suggests that this strip might represent a timeframe earlier than its previous incarnation. That would bolster the idea that Mark, himself, is still a less-than-internationally known nature journalist. I’m not sure what a whacky day is at a vet’s office, but let’s hope there is more to it than just craziness.
