Get Fuzzy first appeared in newspapers in 1999. Darby Conley lives in Boston, with four cats and three boxes of Band-Aids.
The Birth of Canis: A Get Fuzzy Collectionby Darby Conley
Welcome to the crazy, dysfunctional world of Get Fuzzy. In this microcosm of nerdy vegan Rob Wilco's apartment life abide his sociopathic cat Bucky and his guileless but often perceptive dog Satchel (and, yes, they are named after famed Negro Leagues baseball players). Their interactions and domestic repartee not only appeals to pet lovers but also to any cartoon fan who gets a kick out of the idiosyncrasies of life between any co-dwellers.
Bucky, Satchel, and Rob are back for more madness and mayhem. And the world couldn't be happier! Darby Conley's previous titles include two New York Times best-sellers. Bucky Katt is a rather obstinate Siamese who constantly battles his "owner" Rob for control of their home. Satchel Pooch, the Labrador-Shar-pei mix who's sweet and lovable, makes a nice lackey for Bucky. Bucky knows he's smarter than everyone else; it's just a matter of convincing the rest of the world. Satchel always tries to do the right thing but very often ends up the brunt of Bucky's antics. Rob Wilco is a bachelor trying to regain household domesticity. Together, this seemingly typical threesome gets into some less-than-typical but hilarious situations. There's never a dull moment at the Wilco residence.
Get Fuzzy, featured in over 650 newspapers worldwide, is one of the most highly lauded cartoons in the country. The National Cartoonists Society named it Best Comic Strip of 2002. Its sidesplitting humor and hilariously illustrated facial nuances appeal to animal lovers everywhere. Bucky and Satchel's words and expressions are what we all picture our beloved pets saying and doing.

Love Get Fuzzy but the book is not formatted for Nook. Half the cartoon strips are cut off. That is why I gave three stars...the author really deserves all five.
This book is a complete rip off of the really funey comic strips garfeild and pearles before swine. I had never heard of this series and thought that i would give this book a shot. Little did i know thst this was one of the worst drawn andworst humor in all of the comic strips i hve ever read. I could write 20 pages explaning all of the differences of this strip and other ones that are actually funny and have a following. And barnes and noble refuses to refund my miney and they will not put out any calvin and hobes books on my nook no matter how many letters that i send. If you have any GOOD comic strip books on the nok or hsve ny questions or comments please put a coment below.
