Hey guys – just a quick note that we have changed up our Patreon tiers. In order to streamline the process we’ve reduced the tiers to three – Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Basically we’re playing around with a number of formats – including the possibility of moving to a pay-for-page option. We haven’t come to a decision on that yet – but between Tapastic’s recent shenanigans involving possible IP grabs (said clause has been removed from the TOS but it still makes us uneasy) and the fact that we *really* want to make more comics, the only way we can justify that is if our income increases. We’re still looking at print copies, but that involves a *lot* of extra time as we need to rescan/redraw a number of the pages so it’s slow going, especially as we are continuing to create new content at the same time.
That being said the new Patreon tiers are as follows:
Bronze: $1/month – gets you access to page process videos and our everlasting thanks. (And if we go to a pay for page, this will keep you covered – you’d get the pages on time on Patreon instead of having to wait until we posted them here at whatever time frame we decide…)
Silver: $5/month – access to the page process videos, wallpapers, simple B&W doodles 2x a week like the one of Gideon in this post – Aimo will be opening the doodles to include any character from any fandom.
Gold: $10/month – everything in the silver/bronze tiers, plus access to raw page sketches and inks, the ability to make character requests for the doodles, process videos of the doodles and a (hopefully) weekly color picture.
Basically, we really want to continue making this comic, but after 5 years and 500 pages we need some additional support. So, we’re simply asking for a little help – if you enjoy this comic and you’d like to see it continue, please consider heading over to Patreon and signing up.

We recently reached a Patreon goal, and the upcoming livestream is your reward!
Be thinking of what you’d like to see Aimo draw (preferably Fox & Willow specific) – we are open to suggestions!
Please note, this livestream is only available to our patrons – additional information regarding time and location will be posted on our Patreon page at a later date.
(Go here if you’re interested in contributing – access to the livestream only costs $1!)
Thanks again for your support.

First things first – Happy Lunar New Year – here’s hoping for some good fortune for all in the Year of the Monkey!
Now, there isn’t going to be a page update today – Aimo is on travel for the holidays, but we did want to offer all of our readers and supporters a link to our Patreon where you can download free wallpapers of various sizes based on the lovely image above. Yes, I suppose it is possible to outmonkey a fox. Gideon seems rather intrigued, anyway. I love this image – it feels like a tarot card, doesn’t it? Seven of Monkeys?
At any rate, just a quick thanks again to everyone for reading our story over the last few years – we really appreciate it, and thanks for continuing to support us in any way you can – word of mouth, social media shout-outs, donations on Patreon, clicking on ads over at Tapastic – all are great ways to help us out – we couldn’t do it without you!

Hey guys! Just a heads up to let you all know that Sad Sausage Dogs now has a Patreon account!
What does that mean?
Well, it means you have the power to help support this comic!
The long and short of it is that creating traditional comics can be pretty expensive – we’ve been doing this for nearly 2 years without any sort of monetary recompense or ads on the site. Unfortunately, our operating costs are getting a little high, and so we’re looking to our fans and readers for some help.
By becoming a patron, you will help us continue to tell this story the way we need to tell it. Simply choose a reward tier and commit to paying that monthly amount for however long you wish.
(And we’re looking for reward suggestions too! If there’s something you’d like to see, please drop us a line and let us know.)
Thanks for your support. 🙂
