Hey you forgot the arc number in the title. Also I wonder if this is actually going to be a King arc again or an Arc about the Zoo at Christmas with this as a set up strip.

King is buying a cell phone. I wonder who he is going to call?

He is going to call Skylord. *giggles*

This should be promising. I literally laughed out loud at the alt text.

Sweet. I been anxious to see the Zoo animals again, honestly, but on Christmas was totally unexpected.

Now i'm just curious if it's just going to be King and the Wolf Pack? Not expecting any of the major cast, but i got the feeling for some reason someone will show up like Tiger/Marvin/Zach, Maxwell/Bino or Fiddler/Keys

Wow, another one. :) Although it COULD easily be a flashback arc.

This also makes me think that after this, we won't be seeing King for a long while. Having said that, I REALLY hope there is some major resolution in this arc of some kind, seeing as this is right around the completion of his second year as a dog. :?

People seem to keep wondering why Miles and his family going to the zoo would be a bad thing, yet have apparently forgotten there are already wolves at the zoo who have to be there whether they want to be or not.

King's face in the fourth panel is the epitome of Fridge Horror.

For a moment, I was wondering why King was reacting the way he did.

Then I realized it was animals going to the zoo to spectate animals.

Then I started laughing, 'cause irony.

Ohhhh yeeeeeaaah. I'd totally forgotten that the zoo in the comic has a wolf exhibit. Lol.

The strip just got about 20% funnier.

Post Re: Arc 49: A Holiday at the Zoo
I know the zoo animals are more like performers (and can go on strike!) than trapped animals, but has it ever been said how they get the animals in the first place? Do they find ferals who are tired of being wild and want a safe home or do they actually go out and capture them?

My mind first went straight to "Miles' pack ate everyone at the zoo" but it could also be "he started a wolf revolution" "the other patrons freaked out seeing wolves out of the enclosure" (most likely scenario) or "they got captured and locked in the enclosure for awhile"

We don't even really know how big Miles' pack is... he was told to hide his relatives and he has at least one other sibling than Daryl (yes I know it was a joke but to set it up it would have had to have been at least one other brother "This is my brother Daryl and my other brother Daryl" and there could have been any number of other wolves mentioned, though I doubt his pack is very large to live comfortably in one house).

I always just assumed animals went there 'cause they weren't liking the wild, or they were rescued from near-death and given a "job."

I wonder how the wolves at the zoo treated the Milton wolves.
Heh, I can't WAIT to see how this plays out.
(P.S. you guys think the dolphins might become involved somehow in this arc?)

They'd probably mess something up and end up frozen.

I predict a lot of screaming coming up also Security Guards. Also Miles family is huge, are they all living at that house together or did some come from the woods just for this trip or what?

I didn't expand too much on this in the comic but I might at some point in the future: Miles and his immediate family live in the house all the time, and Daryl does most of the time; the rest of the family sorta goes in and out for visitations. It's just going to be hard to draw ALL of them at once.

Ah ok then thanks.

Edit: Also quick question I've always wondered: do you have a story bible for Housepets?

Weird. I always thought Mile's family were: himself, Lucretia, Daryl and 4 cubs. Did he went to the woods to pick the others?

Wolf packs can consist of any number of members (20 - 30 member packs have been reported in the wild in reality) and 15 would not be strange, though I would have expected more cubs. Though, this being a universe where animals are sentient, they probably have some form of birth control or choose to limit themselves to avoid the issues real wolves have of feast or famine.

Post Re: Arc 49: A Holiday at the Zoo
I do kind of wonder just how the feral life works, seeing as how Miles' is so polite and charming. I wonder if that's just because he's studied human culture or whether ferals have societal rules as well. Are they naturally afraid of humans? Do humans ever get attacked by wolves or other large predators in the wild? They seemed quite scared of Miles when he went to town. But the animals at the zoo were quite friendly, and showed no instinct to run away or attack each other (when they were all let out of their cages for the Scrabble tournament). The ferals were quite nice to Zach when he ran away, but he only saw the "low level predators" and not any of the bigger ones. The raccoons are the only ones who have ever been shown to be remotely aggressive or fearful of humans and pets. I would have expected Miles to be far more nervous around humans at first, maybe just a little growly even, but I'd rather have him for a neighbor than some of the ones we have now!

To what, animals aren't allowed to be there at all without owners and leashes? :|

Rick, I see you've been getting practice with humans lately, well done. :)

Something's amiss. I've never known a Christmas arc to not include Christmas itself in comic time. Looks like this won't be ENTIRELY flashback if so.
