I dont actually see the Latern. Maybe he turned it off to allow them to find him
It's like in Larry Niven's story "What Good is a Glass Dagger?" - a thief gets a charm to hide him from a wizard's magic, so the wizard forsees the blank region the charm causes, and scans back to look for the footprints the thief's going to leave. All Pete and Dragon need to do is look for a place where they can't see, or just follow the tire tracks from the last place they could see them.

Am I the only one who suspects the mortals are the ones a step ahead now?
I mean, the lantern did help them vanish from Pete and Dragon, and they did have both Tarot and apparently an iPad to contact Keene with. So I think there might be a twist coming up!
Sure the looked scared but heck; we all would still be a bit worried about if our plans backfire.

really? Any inside information about that?
Because you should count the wolves out of the 'main cast', whatever this implies.
'Snuggles' is also an euphemism used for more intimate activities, and it would take a lot of denial to think that Fido and Sabrina, King and Bailey, are living a platonic relationship. Or that they are not of the age to conceive.
Tarot a teenager? Doubtfully.
And so Ralph, Kevin and the other K9U, as the police forces wouldn't use the equivalent of teenagers for a responsibility job.
Would you consider Bruce and Roosevelt as teenagers as well? Oh, not enough 'main' for you, I imagine

Okay, sorry. Just that "Oh, not enough 'main' for you, I imagine" sounds rather like you where offended...

Anyway. What I mean is the main cast generally points too Peanut, Grape, Bino, Max and the like. Peanut has been stated to be mentally 14ish. And just the character interactions between the likes of Peanut to King would seem different. Before they seemed about on the same plane, but if King would to have kids, that would make them seem to be on 2 different generations, which would change the atmosphere of their interactions.

My guesses:

Teenagers or possibly younger: Peanut, Grape, Max, Sasha, Pit, Bino, Joey, Fox.
Probably adults: Fido, Ralph, etc.; King, Tarot, Keene, Rock, Bailey.
Older animals: Sabrina, Delusional Steve.

Itsuki is a young adult or an older teen.

Others I'm not sure about.

I'm going to be amused if two things happen:

A) That milkshakes will be a recurring joke in the future of the comic.

B) Pete and Dragon have suddenly stopped playing the game all of a sudden and are dating.

Also: Shouldn't it be where the losers areat?

Well, also remember that the difference between 14 and 18 is not very large, and if you're aging at 3.5 years maturity-wise per actual year (as we have decided the pets are), it wouldn't be long before even Peanut was at adult age. So even if Bailey and King are 2-3 years older, they're totally in the pup-bearing age group.

Oh I hope that P&D don't cause more complications for K&B because I want them to come out ahead of the Gods for once.

Also, I'd like to hold off on the pregnancy for a couple of arcs. I want to see King and Bailey be a couple for a little more before coming parents. We barely saw King and Bailey date before they got married after all.

Totally agree! And if Bailey does become in a family way, I'd love to see Fox turn to King and make the comment, "You dog, you." :mrgreen:

What a nice moment of pause, it was surely needed after all that explaining. ;) You followed the other Daryl's "idea" which came from his stomach, but I guess that also yours suggested that. :P Speaking about him, now he's enjoying a chain of 5 milkshakes, and he's asking for more! :lol: Looks like is very hard to impress Tarot, it's all a waste, Karishad. :P King seems to have a presentiment... Yes, the waiter looks like Joel at first, but the glasses are there to make the difference.
Uh-oh, the two spoilsport are coming, and they're always like cat and dog... :? Why are they going there? Yeah, you're both being the curse of this nice couple... Now we should see the human form of Dragon? Priceless expressions for Bailey and King. :D

Now I'm curious. Pete has his Gaspar getup. What does Dragon have?

As for the speculations regarding the pitter patter of little paws, I guess we'll have to wait a couple of months to find-out (assuming a normal delivery time from the stork for dogs).

Well, remember how King reacted to hearing about the milkshake? He got that exact same thought, too. And ran out of the room before Bailey could finish explaining. Which reminds me, we never heard the rest of that story, just that it was her mother's recipe.
Amazee Dayzee wrote:Are Fox and Bailey biological cousins or adopted cousins?
I remember asking about that. We've seen Fox's mother, and she had the same fur pattern as Bailey. And Fox mentioned being born in a barn, so it's very likely that their families were together in Kansas, and quite possibly biological.

Seems to make sense, but remember that Joel looked about in his twenties, so I'm sure that age would translate to the corgi body.

Meh, I think you're overthinking the whole thing. To my knowledge, age was never something that really matters in this comic. In fact I'm kinda sure Rick has said something about that in the past somewhere.

They act according to the personalities that Rick gave them and not according to their age. Just look at this example:
Sabrina is fairly older than Fido, however Fido seems to be more mature than her. In addition, Tarot obviously is much older than Sabrina (remember, Tarot is the master and Sabrina is her apprentice, and the whole thing was supposed to be generational) but still she's more childish than her.

I think Rick does not put much attention to their age because it would only complicate things and some may get too creepy.

Ralph is older than Fido. He was already adult when Fido was still a pup.
And it never seemed to me that there was much (if any) age difference between the ferrets.

For what I've seen in the comic, I'd say the age ranking is:

-Miles' cubs (1/2 years old)
-Grape, Joey, Zach, ferrets (4 years old)
-Peanut, Bino, Max, Sasha, Marvin, Tiger (5 years old)
-Fido, Fox, Kevin, Bailey ( 6/7 years old)
-King (this is just a guess, but I think he's around 8/10 years old if we consider he's 25/28 as Joel)
-Sabrina, Ralph, Duchess, Itsuki, Delusional Steve (12/15 years old)
-Tarot, Rufus (+20)

Biological cousins and pet siblings. Rick personally confirmed it.
