Given the title of the strip, does that mean Kevin knew Marion when he was human? I’m expecting a squirrel chase coming up, though that seems unbecoming of an officer on duty and Kevin is in uniform here. I can’t tell if Kevin is smiling or that’s just how his muzzle was drawn.

Oh, he's smiling...

Well, it is true what they say,
when in trouble, find a cop,
but, in any list of those to help,
Kevin wouldn’t be at the top.
Be very careful here, Marion,
hope and fear are both powerful.
One has you running up a tree
and the other thinks it’s all wonderful.
Things are about to get much worse
unless Kevin brings in Fox or Fido.
Fox knows the powers of Tarot
and Fido’s lady is a Feline Shadow.

Nice. :lol:

Points for Marion for trying to get his Mom to listen. Points to whoever called the K-9's being the first animals Marion meets. World collide in 3, 2, 1...

Well, two things could happen next. Either we go the "dog chase squirrel" route that so the Kevin (in his moment of glory) chases Marion into the woods only to be rescued by a feral and led to Steward or maybe a secret colony of squirrels called Squirreltopia. OR "dog help squirrel" route where it's a fake out and Kevin Beauregard helps Marion therefore leading him to Fox who takes him to King who takes him to Kitsune.

Welp, that at least cuts out the middle man when it comes to filling that missing persons' report.

Oh no, not a squirrel chase. At this point even if Marion does turn back he will never forget this day in his life. The latest pages felt like they were made solely to make this poor squirrel suffer.

You were right on the money.

Real relieved that there's a spot of hope for him here. Definitely excited to see how this interaction between Marion and Kevin does down.

How many strips are left until the end of the arc? Year 11 ends on a Sunday; is Rick going to wait until June 3rd to end the arc, or close it out this coming week on the 31st?

Usually when an arc runs past the end of the year there is a part 2. That is what is most likely is going to happen this time around. After that no telling. It could run for another month or well through the summer.

Just had a thought, unrelated to gender, though potentially a big reason why that isn't a priority worry right now. Being a squirrel could actually be legit dangerous for Marion, for two reasons that he'll be hard-pressed to avoid.

*Squirrels and dogs don't tend to mix.
*Most of our existing character caste are dogs.

If Marion were to run into any of the more traditional neighborhood dogs (or, Kitsune-forbid, Bino), his life could be in rather serious danger.


Called it. :lol: Make for the nearest tree, Marion!

Fido would make sense since he’s Kevin’s partner (I mean they’ll always together anyway) and hopefully he can keep Kevin on a short leash. So Fido takes him to Sabrina who takes him to Tarot who takes him to King who takes him to Kitsune.

I hope Marion’s luck turns around soon, the poor squirrel hasn’t had too much good luck. The guy is at least, trying to stay calm and think things through, for which I give him credit, though I don’t know if finding someone he knew would be much help. I wonder if he still has the same scent he had as when he was a human and maybe Kevin smells someone familiar. It could be that Kevin and Marion’s family are related in some way.

Marion's line "I just need to start canvassing the neighborhood for someone who can recognize what I am!", keyword being "what", makes me think that scent could possibly be a factor. Kevin might catch him, smell him and go "Wait, you smell like... human?" and then Marion explains what happened, then Fox --> King --> Kitsune happens.

Either that, or he gets chased and they bump into Sabrina and/or Tarot, who could also recognize what he is, and gets brought over to King and then Kitsune.

I'm guessing Kevin is going to start a squirrel chase through the neighborhood, more and more dogs are going to be attracted to the commotion and join in, before long there'll probably be a whole mob after poor Marion, and the Benny Hill theme song will be in full swing before finally someone steps in to pull Marion out to safety.

No, Marion's lastname is "Ward" while Kevin's is Beauregard
Maybe Kevin is the dog of their neighbours or something, that would actually be cool.
Now the question is will Kevin chase the poor teenage squirrel or not.
Maybe Kevin will be the one helping Marion during the rest of this arc?
Or will Kevin try to chase Marion and someone else from the K9 will help?
What I could imagine is, they bring Marion to the forest, because they think he is one of the forest critters.

I may have been right for the wrong reasons. Unless Marion has been pounding on the windows long enough for mom to call animal control or the cops, I thought they'd seek him out as a witness to his own disappearance. But this works, too. :D

You know, I had a different thought. Kevin may be a bit flighty but he's a good egg. He sees Marion as a female squirrel, but Marion is wearing a collar of sorts and probably looks lost. He might just be able to hold his instincts enough to actually try and help rather than give chase.

If this was going to be a chase, then any old dog would do. Wouldn't even have to be one we know. Why involve the K-9's at all if it's just to chase Marion into the woods?

That was my thinking as well. All the dogs in the cast Kevin does seem the most likely to give into his more basic instincts. This is the same dog whose catch phrase is “tackle first, ask questions later” but on the other hand why would he be wearing his K-9 uniform if he wasn’t on duty which means that maybe he is in a more serious state of mind and on duty. Kevin has shown himself to be more mature in recent years. Like you said Marion is wearing the bracelet which is a clear sign that he is not a normal feral. If Marion can convince Kevin or anyone that he is at least someone’s pet then that could be his saving grace. Even if there is an initial chase, once Kevin sees the bracelet something might click in his brain for him to switch to “officer Kevin” mode compared to “wild dog” mode.

But this all depends on Marion’s reaction as well. If he panics then it might not matter what Kevin does or doesn’t do. If he goes to “worse case scenario I’m about to die” mode he may be too panicked to listen even if Kevin tries to help.

On the bright side, at least we have almost complete confirmation that we are in fact in Babylon Gardens.

Now we know another bit of information about Kevin. In addition to actually being aware of how awful Sasha's owner has been treating her and being a kind and considerate boyfriend, he also enjoys painfully pouncing on squirrels! :D

I wonder if his reaction might just to faint. He has now lost everything, and the prospect of being chased by a dog (possibly one that he even knows) might be too much to take.

Also, why is Kevin there in the first place? Routine patrol? Lives next door? Investigating a suspicious badger with glasses?

And if this isn't Babylon Gardens, then it's at least in the same town.

Awww, it's useless, little Marion, your mother doesn't see you as her son... :| Yeah, I said that maybe out home you could get an helpful chance, but not like that. :P Eheh, Kevin the dog well recognized you, as a squirrel. :D I hope that being a police dog, Kevin won't get attracted by the irresistible temptation to chase you, but in any case... Runaway! :?
