I get this feeling that Duchess and Lester are related. or at least have the same owner.

two things: A) Is Sasha usually outshined by the other she-dogs i wonder? B) Do Cats go to that salon? :O

Which part? She said a few things.


What she said in the second and fourth panels.

Specifically "You just contradicted yourself, dear" and "I'd explain but apparently I set unrealistic standards for intelligence".

She is right about "feminism being for humans", though, as with canines there is practically no difference at all. They even have separate male and female hierarchies in a wolf pack.

well, Sasha said that using cutesy terms is demeaning and endearing, two qualities that can't quite work together.
the unrealistic standards for intelligence is referring to the fact that Sasha doesn't know how Duchess can tell the difference between male and female dogs, a way which is quite obvious, but can't quite be mentioned in a PG comic.

I forgot about the Miltons. but Bill's eyes are always covered, so it doesn't count.

anyway, I wasn't being serious, just responding to Ricks statement.

The funny thing is, while that would normally be obvious, it is not obvious to us with most of the character designs in the comic. For example, think about Grape! XD

yeah, but the implication that, in their world, it's somewhat obvious (what Duchess said and Grape wondering how Peanut didn't know she was a girl when they're naked all the time) is still there. so it while gender isn't that obvious to us, we still know that it should be obvious to them.

Don't male and female dogs and cats tend to smell different?

Also, obligatory "they are naked all the time!"

Yes, but...Grape's a CAT. Rick has a thing for gender ambiguity of cats in his comic: Grape, Fiddler and Keys, the Mr. Bigglesworths....

I haven't seen that with dogs. When in doubt, check for eyelashes.

This may just be my mind wandering, but Duchess makes me think of KING, what with her color pattern, the expression on her face, and even her name.

I doubt this will happen but what if King and Duchess met at some point, maybe took an interest in each other, maybe that somehow influenced King's decision? I don't know, I doubt it, but my mind wanders....

She's clearly related to King. And she's Great Kitsune's avatar, because Great Kitsune and Pete were brothers, but not literally; they served together back in 'Nam.

'Nam of course being the name of one of the multiple universes.

No, no it didn't. If DC could have just been okay with a multiverse everything would have been fine.

Or, if they had a finale and started over, as in actually started over instead of have an out where they sorta loosely tie everything back in. I mean, that's what they do with their cartoon series, which as far as I'm concerned, are almost all put together much better than the comics universe.

Hmm. Almost makes me want to pick up a comic book to see what this is all about. I assume something about the new Spiderman or something? I am not up on the whole comic thing, so this just went over my head. Oh well....


I am sure it was funny.

Oh please Superman alone needed that reboot he was completely ridiculous at the time, there was no way to really fix him power wise except maybe kill him and bring him back but that would have been unlikely as he was basically a god who could do anything he wanted.

This is what they should do and yes, yes they are.

I believe DC is doing a multiverse-wide reboot. I think it's DC? I'm not sure. I'm not big on comics either.

DC is doing some sort of semi-reboot thing where all the big named characters (and all of the smaller named ones too I think) origins will be rebooted and retold and some of there previous canon will be gotten rid of (but not all of it which is what this comic is talking about) and they will continue from there telling stories. Of course none of this will work right and every thing will end up being a complete mess, due to writers not talking to each other about whats canon and what not; plus editors messing with stuff as well, and in a year to a year and a half they will need to do yet another reboot style thing to fix it.

So basically same old stuff they've been doing since 1986
