Journal Entry 1 by wingkiwiinenglandwing from Wellington City, Wellington Province New Zealand on Thursday, February 6, 2020
New Zealand’s classic cartoon strip, collated into the first of many books, tells the story of a sheep dog, his master, lambs, love and life on a kiwi farm.

I attended the world premier of the film based on these characters, with music from NZ legends like Dave Dobbin and Herbs.

Received for being the lucky winner of the 2020 Celebrating Aotearoa New Zealand Sweepstake. Thank you kiwiinengland.

The original book of an original and very well loved series. A couple of decades ago I went through a good half dozen of these (they are also reasonably well known in Australia), but can't specifically remember if I've read this particular one or not. Doesn't matter anyway as I'm always very happy to spend more time out with Wal, the dog and the rest of the gang.

Thanks again.

Excellent! Living on a small semi rural property I could easily identify with many of the predicaments in which Wal and the dog found themselves. A fun read.

Of course this came from New Zealand. We have enjoyed these cartoons for years.
Great comic strip! Footrot Flats' conceit is not broad in scope. Sure, there's Wal's friend Cooch, Wal's big pig dog Major, and there's the turkey, the goat, the goose. But the comic really boils down to Dog and Wal and their interactions on the farm.
