Here is what Dave had to say about this page:
The "Spike's a good dog" line I still like a lot.
Just a page later, I had lost that quality that separates a good picture of Groucho Marx from a picture of a guy with painted-on eyebrows and moustache. Panel 2 really needed to be the same as panel 3 on the previous page [with the eyebrows pitched a little higher and the eyes a little wider: feigning empathy) instead the look is too languid and Groucho never held a cigar like that in his life. Panel 4 is pretty good though.
