Only two more stops? Too bad, this series is great.

The painting of the water, the rapids and the dog disappearing into them are very good. You tell us it's an old dog, so it's a bit sad, like the dog is disappearing into death. A little of the pooch even leaks into the water. That widening blue strip is lovely, and the dog images have a really good sense of intention and improvisation mixed up.

I may be projecting my own work onto this, but I would want to see the letters all scrambled up in the image, mostly in the last panel. The whole thing, dog, letters, us, all diving into the rapids.

Thanks, Wwc. I'll save that text idea for another time. And just so you know, this series goes out with a bang.

This is one of the cleverest ones. I like the painted letters very much more than other fonts that've been used in the series. I'm not sure I support wwc's suggestion to scramble the words into the rapids; but neither am I sure the text is the right size or the frames perfectly spaced.

I really enjoyed looking at this installment.

There's a sense in which that sounds like you're damning it with faint praise, and yet I feel that "enjoying looking at" is, in fact, the highest praise there is. I'm with you: I enjoyed looking at this installment.

My webmaster is updating my webpage and pointed me to a website that demonstrates horizontal scrolling modes. I feel silly suggesting this to someone with your programming chops, but you may be able to make use of floating directional arrows to simplify users' scrolling through TMFOM.

"There's a sense in which that sounds like you're damning it with faint praise..."

Sorry you are wrong. I am not the passive agressive type.
