What is it about Buckles, the family dog, that makes him a reader favorite? Maybe it's his innocent, guileless personality, more human than dog, that consistently wins readers over. Or perhaps it's his endearing relationship with his humans Paul and Jill, who love him as family rather than owners.
Whatever it is that draws people to Buckles, this dog has his day with readers everywhere. Created by twenty-something David Gilbert, the comic strip Buckles has been described by fans as "adorable," "clever," "refreshing" and "a winner."
Buckles has consistently been given the thumbs up by readers in newspaper comic surveys. With its lively artwork, humorous storylines, and charming cast of neighborhood characters, Buckles continues to win fans across the country and internationally.
