This should be interesting. A new pairing! King and Duchess!

EDIT: I can't believe I missed that! She thinks King is mouth-frothing adorable!!!

Cool Right into the King Arc. This should be rater interesting. Nice to see Duchess again and Boris seems to live with her or is "employed" by her in some way.

so, how many people demanded this pair based on their royal names alone? quite a few, If I recall correctly.

quite interesting indeed.

on another note: Boris works for Duchess. guess Bino was just borrowing him in that other arc.

Or Boris and Yeltsin sells there services. Or Duchess happened to be there at the meeting and they live with her so they came with and Bino was able to use them as he is the leader.

Oh, so help me Rick if King's story gets hijacked into some shipping contest...

Something tells me Duchess is going to get scorned at the end of this, and King will have a powerful enemy.

Duchess just seems to be using him to win the contest I doubt there will be an attraction on either side. Though I could see King thinking of it that way and then explaining to her that he is taken. So he could end up with a powerful ally in the end.

In the Soviet Union and other communist countries (and many other dictatorships!), everyone had to carry identification documents. The authorities (including secret police) could demand these at any time and you would not want to be somewhere without authorization (or your papers).

King must love making Snow dogs... that's mostly all of what he does in Winter. :roll:

That would be a nice little thing to do. If it snows where you live, make a snow dog and snap a pic! Add a Housepets Scarf to earn the praise of your fellow forumites! :lol:

Does King HAVE papers? let alone purebred ones?
being that he wasn't born a dog, an has no canine linage to trace.?

You know, it took a sec for me to get the "papers" joke since he's named after the first (and only) democratically-elected leader of Russia.

I also think this will most likely be the outcome.
By the way, I loved this strip.

Grape is going to win the contest this year. So calling it. Unless they get to vote both a Dog and Cat couple, then King/Bailey followed by Grape/Max.

I'm pumped for this arc. Poor Duchess already feels leftout </3

If Bailey were pay a surprise visit to fox and see this happening! That would make things interesting for sure!

I love how King has stopped being angry at the world and just decided to make a snowman!

"Sometimes...
The world is black
and tears roll from you eyes.

And maybe
We'll all get really sick
And maybe we'll all die...

Soooooooooo!
Let's build a snowman!
We can make him our best friend!
We can name him Bob or we can name him Beowulf!
We can make him tall or we can him no-so tall!
Snowman!
He'll have a happy face, a happy smile, a happy point of view!
If you build me a snowman then I'll build one for you!
Snowman! Snowman! SNOOOOOOOOWMAAAAAN!"

I got a nosebleed from Boris in the last panel, but in other news seeing King and his hobby of making snow dogs really makes me wish one of King's snow dogs will come alive, Hobbies and Calvin style.

Dare I ask why a panel in a comic is giving you a nosebleed?

Foxstar if you are who I think you are, you should know the answer to that question. Enough I will say no more.

At the beggining there was the ship "King of Hearts", then there was the ship "Don't go native", now it's time for the ship "Royal family"!

Post subject:  Re: Arc 51: Show Business

Snow cat huh? Funnily enough, making one of those has never crossed my mind. Made a snow bunny, last year...and it was 'evil'. Tried and failed to make a snow dog...the snow here(When we get any at all) just doesn't hold together right to be able to make the correct ear shape.

That said, it's great to see King again, and rather amusing to see Duchess pop back out of the woodwork. Now all we need is for Bailey to show up and Sasha to arbitrarily decide she wants to date King for a little bit so we can see a three way war for the poor corgi.

Mind you I'm kidding about the Sasha part, but I'd be endlessly amused if Bailey did in fact show up.

Too late. King's now been shipped with the entire cast, including Bino (for the same reason people like shipping Harry and Draco).

Oh, don't you dare!!! :P

Besides, seeing his story advance to where he can finally be out of the mental and existential torture he's been in is one of the TOP priorities of things I want to see happen in this comic!

But seriously, I rather believe that Rick can ill afford to do that. Or perhaps even wants to. He's already being very generous in three updates a week (Something I wish I could appreciate and be grateful for more often :oops: :oops: ).

Although i wish we got more Res I'm looking forward to seeing how this unfolds. I bet you in one of the strips King and Duchess will duke it out in a battle of complaints, an epic war of which gender is lower in the pecking order, and in the end King will walk away unwilling to keep going then duchess will be like "Huh...suddenly i feel compelled to express undignified girlish glee...."
