by

Many years ago, the always-brilliant Calamity Jon covered Krypto the Super-Dog on his awesome blog, Gone And Forgotten, leading the phrase “made of stinky poop” into my vocabulary (always a big hit with the Widget, even in her new pre-teen phase.)  Recently, Jon re-presented that classic bit of comic ephemera with some updates and such, reminding me of the wonderful days where it didn’t seem like that big a deal for Jor-El to have fired his kid’s Airedale into space.  Still, Superboy isn’t the only one with a goofy big dumb animal hanging about during their adventures: The Superfriends had Wonder Dog and Gleek; The Inhumans had Lockjaw; Mal Reynolds had Jayne Cobb.  Even Batman got in on the action with the legendary Ace, The Bat-Hound, leading us to today’s barely house-broken query…
