Since "C-Kennel" began appearing on 2/13/07 as a comic strip in development on Creators Syndicate web site, we've been receiving mail from readers.
A big shout out to Creators for this incredible opportunity, "Thanks, gang!"
Here are a few excerpts from the many letters:
A few months ago I discovered your comic completely by accident on creators.com and have been hooked on it ever since. Dogs of C-Kennel is one of the best I have read since Bloom County and Peanuts! Kenny reminds me of my German Shepherd, Zoe, she's just as mindless as he is.
Thank you for your creation and long live the Dogs of C-Kennel.

Super comic! It makes me laugh out loud. That is rare. Most comics produce a smile, sometimes a giggle. With yours, I really laugh.
Keep up the good work!
[We] have enjoyed receiving the "Dogs of C-Kennel" each day by email. Seeing how the characters appearances have changed slowly over time is amazing.
It's wonderfully funny and oh, so clever.
Thanks very much for the 'Dogs'. I'll be sharing them with my vet.

Have been following the development of your C-Kennel. Very enjoyable, keep at it. You may have the next Dog Eat Doug there!

A simple word of encouragement to you - keep up the good work with your "Dogs of C-Kennel" comic. You're doing a great job developing it and I enjoy the humor. My family and I have owned Siberian Huskies for 8 years and you have some of the traits down well :) All you need now is a French poodle with an attitude or another fun breed to play with.
Keep up the great work!
Dear Mick Mastroianni - So far I like this Dogs of C-Kennel. Thanks for picking up B.C. I enjoy it as much as ever especially with humor that's current to "now". My condolences on the loss of your Granddad.
'Write' on brother. Sincerely,
Thanks, Gweedo, Actually, my brother, Mason, is the B.C. head-writer and cartoonist. I write for the strip.
We collaborate on C-Kennel. I write it, he draws it. Glad you like what we're doing!
Thanks for the condolences, we sure miss our "Pops"...
Just wanted to say I enjoy your strip very much. You really capture the spirit of dogs and show the individual breed characteristics. Best of luck to you and I hope your strip is a huge success. As a proud father of an American Eskimo Dog (Shasta) I love seeing doggie antics played out!

I've been following the 'Dogs' since the beginning and I have to say that I love the direction they have taken. Kenny is terrific. All of the dogs are developing real personalities.
Keep up the great stuff!

Sometimes a reader answers a question for one of our characters!
"Twerp: A timid, insignificant, colorless person."
Hmm... Thanks, Tom!
Now, can anyone tell me... is there any such thing as a "Terp"???
"Terp" is prehistoric. "Terp: A large artificial mound in the Netherlands (as in Friesland) providing a site or refuge for a prehistoric settlement in a seasonally flooded area", but what do Webster and I know?
This is great! "Prehistoric", no less...
Thanks again, Tom!
