King is becoming intimately aware that living life with a teddy bear-like body can have its downsides.

King's face is the face of someone who regrets everything.

He had this coming. I mean he just had to open his mouth. After all these years, you'd think he'd learn.

You know Kitsune is chuckling in the closet. I'm surprised there isn't a speech bubble with "HAHAHAHa"coming from off panel.

Things can never be less awkward for King. I'm pretty sure it's some kind of Celestial decree. Kitsune probably had something to do with it.

Well people were saying Kev should
be spending more time with Sasha
remembering that, as dogs go,
the big guy is quite a smasher.
He’s quite a match for his girl,
equally nuts in many ways.
When on duty he is steadfast
but then, when he’s off it, he plays.
A new trio has now cropped up
for us all to watch and adore
as we think of the question..
is Sasha sleeping on the floor?

Why would there be anything awkward about this?

Just some casual bro cuddling

The arc ending with King and Sasha reaching an amicable agreement to respect each other's boundaries after taking a roundabout and hijinks-filled path toward that agreement is great. And I know King's befuddlement with what's happening in that last panel is definitely valid given how he expected to just have his bed to himself and Bailey after everything got solved, but he should learn to enjoy being snuggled between his awesome spouse romantically and his awesome friend platonically at the same time.

I'm excited to see the next arc. What's the over-under on there being a skip forward to the ECP boarding house being opened up? This last strip has me thinking we'll get another arc with them living in the Wolf House. Maybe Kevin telling King about his plans to propose to Sasha, and Sasha working to recover and find her own place in life now that she's been emancipated.

Part of me really wants to see Marion & Lois back in focus, moving in to the boarding house and maybe having the two make new friends as the ECP accepts new members (including prey animals now). However, continuing on with the development of Kevin & Sasha as a couple and as their own characters, maybe with some development for Fox as well if King spills the beans about Kevin wanting to pop the question, would also be excellent. I got a soft spot for Fox during the Hot Springs arc and would love to see more of him as he grapples with his feelings of loneliness and grows as a character.
With the right community, getting into a webcomic at the beginning of a brand new arc can feel just as enjoyable and rewarding as being there from the beginning.

King, why are you blushing?
You never had a crush on Kevin :mrgreen:
.....
or is there anything we need to know? :o
(Nah probably not)

Okay now I'm wondering about something:
Is Kevin also now emancipated or does he just live with the wolves together until Sasha is in the bording house?
I would also ask what his owner thinks about it, but I guess the owner just thinks it's cute or something.

King just can't catch a break. Maybe Sasha is with Natalie.

For the next arc, I'm kind of torn, I'd like to catch up with Peanut, Grape, Maxwell, and Tarot, but on the other paw, I'd like to see more of Marion and Lois, o r maybe Fox.

I'm probably the only person that wants this, but I gotta see Bino again sometime soon- Just an arc to develop him and Duchess maybe.

But on the topic of the strip, anyone notice that Kevin's actually cuddling King closer than Sasha did?

I personally love to see the next arc be about Res again.

As for the close cuddle, I dunno it seems he's just about the same distance away as Sasha was. Could just be me.

Kevin doesn't quite fit on the bed;
"Oh, boy, oh, dog, oh dear,"
Crazy thoughts run through King's head,
"I can't run, Kevin's arm's pinning me here."

I feel like we've seen this be-fur,
Except it's a lot more awkward this time,
King remains quiet, as he's sure
That words won't work; he'll gape like a mime.

There's nothing awkward about this,
That means it's awkward for real,
It only means that King'll miss
The mental peace he can no longer feel.
You're a wonderful person! You can do this! Yes, you, person reading this!

I think any questions about the next arc should be directed to Rick towards the future arcs topic. We seem to be quick on the suggestions already x3

Thus ends the first full arc since I started reading the comic. Fitting that it ends on another awkward note for King.

Huh, the thing got from bad to worse... :D Eheh, poor King, you wished so. ;) Kevin and Sasha are going to have an home for themselves due to ECP, but at the moment, also Kevin is now at King's family home, despite he already had a place... :roll: Probably there's again the rule "host also Kevin or start paying rent". :P :? Well King, hold on, all this won't last long. :)

Does King now also need to tell Kevin about not getting too close or will Sasha do it.
Also I had to think why Sasha isn't in the bed.
First I thought it was because the bed was too small (it still is) but then I realised it's because she understands that King doesn't want her to be too close, since it's uncomfortable for him.

I would just LOVE to see King try to have the same talk with Kevin about boundaries that he did with Sasha to get her to become a little less invading of his personal space. Kevin is probably one of those dogs that think that nipping is an invitation to play. Cue him talking King and sending him flying into a wall then the emergency vets! :D

Fox is the one that wants (or wanted, I don't know after the spa incident) a committed relationship with Sasha. I don't think Kevin will pop the question.
I have ideas and I occasionally put them down.

The title of the arc threw me off thinking Kevin was going to do something big as well, but guess not. I don't mind. Gives Rick more energy to do that sort of thing with the Sandwiches, honestly :3

To tell you the truth, I would expect Peanut to propose to Grape before Kevin proposed to Sasha. I know that he isn't as dumb as he looks but does he even know what a proposal is and what marriage entails?

I hope King wakes up spooning with the right dog, because otherwise it will take years of therapy to get him back right again.

While it's nice to see king being loved, I still don't know how I feel with a married dude sleeping with someone other than their significant other like this. I can slightly understand sasha's case, being she was a abused dog and has daddy issues, and is probably subconsciously trained to innately be cute, attractive, and wanting to make out with other dogs, and king was trying to set up boundaries, but what IS Kevin's excuse? He isn't abused as far as I am concerned. Also wouldn't he be with sasha?
