‘Marmaduke’ to feature real stories from readers

Brad Anderson’s Marmaduke will be featuring the story of real life dog Maggie that was sent in by nine-year-old Lydia Joyner. Brad features real life dogs as part of his side feature “Dogs Gone Funny.” Lydia’s story will run this Sunday.

“It’s just weird. I just thought he would read it. I didn’t know it would happen,” Lydia said.

Kathryn Joyner said having her daughter and their dog featured in the comic strip is exciting.

She remembers when Lydia wrote the letter.

“She goes off and does writing stuff all the time, and then she asked me what the Palladium-Item’s address was,” Kathryn Joyner said. “I didn’t figure it’d go very far. It’s just such an affirming thing for Lydia.”

Hey, no wonder that coytoe in Prickly City got all bent out of shape when his newspaper dropped Marmaduke.
