Odie 1978 & beyond

Odie first appeared in the comic strips on August 8, 1978, which is considered his birthday. There has been only one comic strip that celebrates Odie's birthday, in 1995[1]. He was originally a pet to Jon Arbuckle's roommate Lyman, but Lyman disappeared from the series after about five years (with the exception of a one-panel cameo appearance in the strip for Garfield's 10th birthday). Odie eventually becomes a pet to Jon. There were some strips stating he was a pet to Jon originally.
In the motion picture, Odie was adopted by Jon at a veterinarian center.
One year from today is 8/8/8, and Odie will be exactly Age 30!
