I'm trying to find the cartoon of a poodle making expresso in the
morning with the caption, "What nervous poodles do when their owners
are asleep" or something like that. It is drawn by Gary Larsen "The
Far Side". If you could tell me which book it is in or send me a link
if that particular cartoon is posted on a website, I would be very grateful!

Rated:5 out of 5 stars

The caption is actually "While their owners sleep, nervous little dogs
prepare for their day."

You can see it midway down this page:

It has apparently also been printed on a coffee mug:

It's also on page 11 of The Far Side Gallery 5.  You can view it here
with's "Search Inside" Feature:

The mug is also on eBay:

search strategy:
"far side" espresso dogs
"far side" "nervous little dogs"
