It's always important to learn from your elders.

I expected this. Not so soon. But I had this feeling (hope) that King would show up with his humany wisdom and it went pretty much like I expected right down to “you know I was human right?”

did anyone read the Facebook post? OMG that was pretty good. Roses cover the stage when he shows up. :lol:

I’m starting to think Rick is doing this in purpose now. “I drifted around for years when I turned eighteen. I have a troubled past with computers. My mother is apparently dead but my father is alive yet despite nine years as a dog I never once spoke to him. I went to jail twice. I was in college for an unspecified amount of time. I’m most likely in my thirties but who knows for sure. I’m not telling.”

A couple things:

First, I friggin' love this comic. That was so funny to me. XD

Second, does King look different to anyone else? There must have been a style change since we last saw him. He looks good in this style.

Third:

I think I heard somewhere that animals get to be in their 40's, but I don't know how accurate that information is. Still, he's a lot older than he looks.

Fourth, I know that this whole "King was a human" thing is old news to a lot of people, but how many people know about it, and how open is he about it? He seems pretty open about it here.

Also, no, there’s no surgery for that - the weirder humans just put on costumes and go to conventions. :lol:

The Alpha consults the King
on the matters of Wolf pack pride
and Daryl told the secret
that he learned Aussie side.
Growing pains haunt the young
even if they don’t know yet
the pride that knowledge brings;
family is the surest bet.
Wolves and Kings, Pups and Cubs,
more alike than they’ll admit.
Some things are common to all species
if you walk in their fur for a bit.

Love it! King, completely comfortable in his new identity, confidently adopting the role of advisor; Miles, accepting the corgi's past with nonchalence. The maturity of both characters really shines through here.

And the film reference: perfect. Man, took me back a few years though...

Can you imagine that conversation with Daryl.

Daryl eating something with the other wolves then says “Did you know King used to be human?”
The other wolves do spit takes.

Well.... this was unexpected.

I do admit I find it rather hilarious Daryl knew all along and we are only finding out right now.

Also, I love this strip's title.

I think I heard somewhere that animals get to be in their 40's, but I don't know how accurate that information is. Still, he's a lot older than he looks.
In A Life Well-Lived Breel estimates his lifespan to be between 40-50 years, so that is the current standard, but In Sabrina's Infinitesimally Brief History of The World (part 3) Sabrina says "...dogs and cats also live up to forty years, though in the wild that number is often closer to fifteen. On average, anyway." so since he was old for a wolf when they were feral, Uncle Deadeye would be around 15 so definitely younger than King.

Fun fact he hasn’t actually admitted he was human in years. Not since http://www.housepetscomic.com/comic/201 ... after-all/ has said those words. The closest thing we’ve gotten to an admission in recent years was http://www.housepetscomic.com/comic/201 ... are-gross/

Another fun fact King has not been called Joel or even had his human name mentioned since his mother called him Joel http://www.housepetscomic.com/comic/201 ... in-heaven/

I wrote that to prove a point or express my frustration about how much I love King but know very little about him. King was the literal reason I started reading the comics.

I kind of suspected that the pack knew for a while. Daryl was there, it makes sense that it would come up. (Honestly, right now it's almost easier to list the characters that DON'T have a legitimate means of already knowing about that)

ChekeBello Wrote:

That's a good point, King being a domestic would probably make it easier in some ways (no one would be afraid of him) , and harder in others(Most humans wouldn't take him seriously).

Too bad he can't claim his College credentials.

Other Daryl was in Austrailia for that whole wrap-up.

And King alluded to having attended college here.

Yessssss!!! After what feels like years we finally get (mostly) everyone's favourite corgi back :D I really hope he'll be a main throughout this arc. I really like it whenever King talks openly about his human past, and especially if it makes him blush or feel embarrassed (because for some reason we all love it when characters get flustered idk why). :lol:

I also wonder how big his pups have grown since last time we saw them. Won't be long now until they start talking and being defiant and all that normal teenage stuff X3

Somehow King was drawn %10 more cute in the first panel. Like Saturday Morning cartoon cute. x3

They never did tell King he was human,did they? Makes King's reveal to Keene more amusing since you'd figure he'd update the wolves about that. =P

It would be funny but I don't think he will. As a Pembroke Welsh Corgi now he's really well suited to two possible positions, livestock herding and interplanetary bounty hunting.

There’s always therapy dog. Though, I think it’d be funny to see him failing at that due to his constant worrying. X3

King is the one who needs a therapy dog or just a therapist.
Therapist: “Okay Mr. Milton why are you here today?
King “It all started when I was born.”
Two Hours later
King “Then this giant blue Gryphon turned me into a dog.”
Therapist “I’m sorry, what was that? You’re saying that you weren’t always a corgi.” *Writes down on clipboard “Put down payment on beach house.”

King aside I’m starting to see where this chapter is going.
Miles is going to have a pack meeting where everyone is going to decide whether or not to return to the wild. They go back to living in the woods and it is so bad that they learn a valuable lesson about being grateful for what they have. Then They suck it up and go to school and work like everyone else. Please let the crazy limerick man come in this one. We haven’t seen him in a long time.

King is looking very cute today. Even more so than usual.

Once again I ask you. How OLD is he?! seriously. not to mention he did go to college so backstory please.

Joel was 29 when he was turned into King. I don’t think his physical age as a dog has ever been known. I’ve always assumed his age was somewhere between Fox and Fido, which would make him slightly older than Peanut and Grape.
