As 2016 approaches, we leave behind a year that had words like intolerance and discrimination reign the national news. But lets all resolve to make a fresh start, and no one better than a dog to tell you that. Ichabod, a fantastic animal cartoon creation by artist Ayla Astra, is a Corgi that is super optimistic about life. As Astra puts it, 'He is here to spread smiles across the internet.'
So we present you with some of the best strips of Ichabod the Optimistic Canine to go into the new year with renewed hope, love and compassion towards fellow beings.
