Bino and King are the ones that have been getting character development so far.
Sasha has been doing Sasha stuff. Once she "does something meaningful", the comments and theories will start poring in.
I am looking forward to what that may be =).

I completely agree with Esquire Fox. Sasha has to do something new before we can really talk about her at length like we are about King and Bino. Because so far Sasha has just been being cute and funny we already know Sasha is cute and funny there is nothing new to really talk about there.

Actually, if i may for a moment. I maybe calling it too early, but here's my thought on Sasha.

I find this 'is' Sasha's character development for this arc. It may not look like it, but Sasha's development is understanding the way she thinks at times. The way i see it with Sasha is she's the type of character that has a habit of letting people's words, reputation and emotions get the best of her. That's pretty much evident with her dad, Fido and Bino.

That's not saying she's bad though. there's people out there that tend to have a bad habit of not looking to hurt anyone, and Sasha at best is the kind of character that lets people make the decisions for her since she seems like the character that doesn't want to hurt anyone, even Bino. But it's that natured way that also probably got lots of people to also wish her the best in life. Probably why she also gets alot of valentine's =P

You know guys the "does something meaningful" I put on the poll was going to be entirely subjective. It's not going to meet everyone's standards.

I suppose it is easy to attribute everything a goofy character does to their general attitude.
What I'd really like to see is Sasha just go out of character for once though.
She has all this pressure on her and it doesn't seem to phase her at all.

I kind of figured the poll was subjective.
So far, Bino has been in every panel of this arc save for one.
Certainly not a bad thing, but future readers will likely not see this as an arc just for Sasha.

So honestly, this is the Bino & Sasha arc (so far), and I am enjoying it.
Can't wait for the Friday page :D!

Also, Bino is the comedy king! (no pun intended).

To be fair, Sasha getting shot would make for an interesting storyline. Not lethally of course. That'd be horrible. Either way, it'd be pretty out of place. BUT IT WOULD BE INTERESTING. YEP.

I GET IT. I TOTALLY GET IT NOW.
This makes much more sense than King having an interest in her as anything more than a friendly dog. I must complain though that it was one arc ago that I posted that little comic describing your writing style and you're already deviating! >:|

More seriously though, are you experimenting with your writing right now? This arc seems to be going in a more down-to-earth direction than the others before it, possibly dramatic. I'm not going to make a judgment on it, only say that it's interesting.

Go. Sasha. *horns*

I wanted to flaunt my artsiness by identifying the piece, which I think I played once, but I can't remember what it is, if I played it at all. So I think it backfired.

She's apparently a musical genus of some sort. Also no were near as much of an air head as anyone thought.

Edit: also Bino=Owned

Go Sasha! That shows Bino for not caring! (I think that if Bino forgets to give his girlfriend on Valentines Day, and then re-gifts to her that she got him, then that's considered not caring)

I always assumed Sasha had more going on than people wanted to give her credit for. (Most of the eccentrically scatterbrained people I've known are pretty sharp, actually.)

*facepalm*

HOW did I not see this coming? I should have. What with all the commentaries both in-comic and out-of-comic about Sasha being an airhead...? I should have seen a revelation like this coming, especially since she's supposed to do something meaningful in this arc....

I'm...guessing "he" is King...? :?

So wait...who has she been pretending for, then? Her owner? And is it just perkiness plus pretense of stupidity?

I wonder how that piece sounds, too....

Just wondering whether the piece in the background of panel 2 is from a real piece or just a random background.

Also, I'm guessing part of something meaningful from Sasha is putting her boyfriend back in place :mrgreen:

Well, I guess it's simple right-versus-left brain thing.

And Sasha is very right brained.

Very, VERY right brained.

I doubt she pretends. At this point, i'm willing to give her more credit that she does. She has a good imagination and she can at the very least pick up on when her boyfriend is doing something unusual.

I was also guessing this, but i'm confident now that this the first time Bino tried something like this on Sasha. Bino really oughta stop trying to underplay people, even his girlfriend. >.>

My face when I realized the arc was over:

I did like this arc, but revealing that she's good at the piano and that she's not an airhead isn't that meaningful IMO...
EDIT: Well, the not-an-airhead part was kinda meaningful

But Rick, you're still ahead in favor points with me. It's 300:1 in win:fail points. You're still an epic win.

I don't mean to sound mean or anything Rick. But you can please some of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the people all of the time. And we KingxSasha shippers tend to be pretty vocal about that couple.

That is cute, but that was Peanut and Grape! I was hoping for heartwarming cuteness with Sasha!

And Diss, that is my exact definition of cuteness!

Sasha could still be "stupid" despite her recently displayed abilities. She could just have some degree of autism (hence why "stupid" is in quotes, since that's not actually stupidity) and be more observant than she lets on.

Or she could be a cartoon dog.
