Tomorrow is Tu B'Shvat. The Jewish New Year of the Trees. I'm posting this Golden Oldie full page cartoon from a Tu B'Shvat way back in 1981. Back then I was doing a weekly full-page "Weekend Dry Bones" cartoon in the Jerusalem Post. In this Golden Oldie we see Doobie the Dog eager to find out what this week's page will be about, and about what "role" he'll be playing in it..

Mr. Shuldig often represents my sweetest, most Zionist, most Shmaltz-ladden feelings. Doobie the dog is there to represent my more cynical (down to earth?) side.
