What's up with Fido? I can't tell if he has tears or sweat on his face. So, is he crying (in public) over Sabrina (which makes sense given the title of the strip and the link to the thread), or was he working out or something (which makes sense because he had a towel and who the heck cries in public)?

Well, given that his eyes aren't watering and the common knowledge that dogs don't have sweat glands (not sure if that applies to this comic, but until someone shows me otherwise I'll just assume that it does), I'd have to say that neither is the case. My guess would be that he just got out of a pool or something.

I think King picked Sabrina first because she's shown a little more sympathy for him than Tarot has. Sabrina helped him get his watch back and even threatened Fido into helping him (though I don't think King knows that). Tarot's just been standoffish and unhelpful.

It's a good think Joel isn't wearing a white-hooded sweater, because that would be suspicious. It's one thing to use your wife's handkerchief, but another to wear your wife's clothing. :P

Tarot is the Dragon's avatar, and Pete wanted Joel/King as his avatar. So naturally Tarot would be standoffish to Joel/King. That's my opinion anyway.

I'm thinking its a transportation device.

Joel: We need to find out where the duel is taking place, and a way to get there.
Fox: Great. I can't get you across town, how do we get half way across the world?!?
( Peanut fumbles with the device, activating it. The three of them and a napping Grape suddenly appear infront of a sign DUEL TODAY! 7000 years in the making! Pete bobble heads for the first 1,000 arriving!)
Joel: Well, that was easier than expected.
Device: Thank you for using Dragon Astral Travel Service.

Well, now I feel silly. That's what I get for not having a wife. I guess being outside in public in your wife's clothes would be more of what I should have leaned towards, or maybe I'm just a fail human.

If Sabrina went to help Tarot fight, then maybe Keene disappeared as well to back up Bailey

Well, this strip isn't nearly as dramatic as what we've had, and a lot of the discussion and speculation comes from that.


Anyways, I wonder if Tarot told Peanut that Joel is King. Peanut has seen plenty of cosmic stuff in this comic, and he seems to not have a problem with some disguised human walking up to his house with Fox as he's offering him snacks. Then again, Peanut is a friendly character in general and Tarot probably just told Peanut to accommodate Fox and "the human".

Ok, I tried to contain myself after I looked at the strip again, but with Joel disguised like that from head to toe, he looks like some bug-eyed alien.

Heh, that would be cool, except I know Rick does the comics weeks in advance, and he is reportedly not reading the forums during this arc. Still it would be an honor if he did :)

There's one strip that shows King and Fox panting frantically to cool down, so I think that's a trait of Housepets! canines as well.

I believe Fido is crying, or was, as it looks similar to when Bailey had cried.

Fido was obviously crying for Sabrina's leaving, as he says. What can be this important thing she has to do?

Yeah, I'd now noticed this looking at the strips. Sabrina cared to help King informing him with the bad news (his frustrated reply wasn't nice at all against her). Didn't go well for Tarot/Dragon in the only time she did it. :P Well, Tarot hasn't all the fault, he's (now was) her opponent in the game...

Joel's disguise is ok, after all, doesn't matter how he may look. ;) He's surely being wanted for escaping, just after he was put in jail.

I know, but the glasses just make it look like that. Completely black, unlike Fido's glasses which have a separate outlining.

The reason there weren't any talking what-so-ever between Joel and Fox about what's happened and stuff, might just be because then Rick would have to tell us about their plan, which we still don't know what is. So probably (and hopefully) we'll see more explanations and such later on? :D

Post Re: 2014/05/23 - Separation Anxiety
I gotta say i still feel bad for Joel right now. I mean hes become so accepting of his new dog life, not to mention made some good friends as a dog and even found a soulmate. Now all that has been predominately taken away from him and he now has to hide himself from his own friends because he looks like a wanted dognapper who jumped trial. Plus theres the worry about whats happened to Bailey tearing him up inside not to mention the guilt he must be feeling for getting Bailey involved not knowing getting her was possibly Petes plan all along.

This is one of the reasons why i made that comment on the last thread about why i didnt agree with the idea of Joel staying human and Bailey becoming human to be with him. The way hes feeling right is only going to ferment within him as long as hes human. Plus dont forget his human life was never really that great what with being kidnapped by his own pets then being mistreated by them resulting in his attitude towards animals as an adult and resulted in him getting thrown in jail. Believe me i dont believe he has any intentions of being human again even if Fido could clear things up and get him off the hook. Plus these feelings would only get worse if Bailey had to become human because that would just add to his guilt even more as he would feel at fault for her having to give up her dog life.

Believe me if i were in his shoes having experienced what happiness he had as an anthropomorphic dog, i would want to trade flesh for fur anyday. I guess that makes Joel a furry's furry!

Wonder if Joel would still have a human's lifespan as a dog. It would be just like Pete to turn Joel back into King and say ..."By the way...You're 28 now....given that dogs (in this reality) have a 30 year life span.... I wouldn't make too many long range plans if I were you.....

It would be really jerky of Pete if he made Joel/King keep his human lifespan so that he'd outlive Bailey.

One thing I like about shades is how the light on them sometimes reflects the owner's expression. That is a common thing going on these days on comics i read and i personally find them amusing.

Here's my random take of the next strip (assuming Joel told Fox everything, including what happened to Bailey).

---

Joel, Fox, and Peanut are sitting on the couch.
Fox: "Peanut, you sure you're ok with Tarot being possibly gone for a long time?"
Peanut: "Long time? She said she'd be gone only for a couple of days fighting for some demigods."
Joel: "Just days? Well, I guess it won't be so bad after all."
Peanut: "I know. I can't wait till she stuffs her opponent into the grave."
Joel & Fox both become motionless and wide-eyed: "Into....the...grave?"
Joel runs around in a panic, Fox stays motionless, and Peanut holds the bowel over to Fox. "Popcorn?"

---

Into the grave, figuratively speaking.
