Okay, it's a dog. And he's not wanting his person to leave. But the fun part is what you think is going to happen after this panel, like the guy attempting to walk out the door while shuffling his foot with a dog sitting on it. Kind of like the scene in "The Jerk" where Steve Martin drags his dog down the street.
So, I kind of think of myself as a maker of one-frame movies. They've got a plot, they've got characters, they've even got dialogue. They're just really, really short. Like my thought processes.
