The left out female dogs I hope we could see more of.....

Post by ZAR22 »

Hey, I noticed with the EXCEPTION of celestials, we don't have alot of female dogs with a arc solo focused on them, with the only exceptions being sasha, bailey, and tarot ( and bino's present girlfriend, duchess, to a VERY lesser degree), and we have more female cats with characterized personalities and interactions in One-off panels by themselves, FOCUSED on them, then male cats (ironic since there are more Male cats then females), and Male dogs take up the majority.

I am just saying I would like to see a little more female dog gags (BESIDES: bailey (as much as she is my fav. Dog character, she is way busy with parenting and such, so I don't want her to be yanked out of her more important stuff), tarot (she is having personal issues, and don't want to bother her), sasha (legal issues she is having with being adopted and I don't want to see a joke made out of her situation, because I respect the legal process she is going through), and duchess (bruh, it's DUCHESS, and she is so self centered, I will pass on HER)) that are one off and focused on those characters, and we can have more of them.

And no the wolves are NOT dogs, sure they are canines, but NOT dogs, so BESIDES them. I mean dogs of the real life domesticated breed.



Reccomendations:

Daisy, the REAL her, full dialog and all besides "Hi I'm daisy".
The female K-9 unit member seen at the pet wedding, come on!! The possibilites we can use for her!!

If we HAD to include celestials, then spring and summer, and maybe a winter and autumn/fall couple of dogs too? I mean, fire, earth, wind in September anyone?

I would say cerb, but I don't think it's possible given her job position.

I would also say olive, but she may be to young.


Wow, just noticed most of the female dogs I recommend have either black fur, or are a husky breed of some sort.


But anyway, I guess I just want to see more: daisy, spring, summer, olive(?), cerb, K-9 female dog, and if I had to say ONE of the wolves, natille (probably spelling it wrong).


But what are your thoughts? Are there any female dogs you noticed that don't get alot of solo panels and attention they deserve besides bailey, tarot, sasha, and duchess?

Let me know, THX!! :D :D

Seems like you might be most satisfied if you wrote it. :? I believe there's a whole section here for fanfic if you want.

Nah, because then it wouldn't be the characters that RICK wrote, rather my own interpretation, and while there is nothing wrong with the fanfics, I would like to have better seen what he would have done with them. If nothing, and he would say something to the effect of "we may not see them again, of ever" then I would be more inclined to write a script for someone to write and draw a gag (someone who can draw really close to the HP! Design) explaining why we won't see them again. But thx for the idea and info!

Yeah, I agree with you on principle I just think if Rick were to do something like that he should choose what to write it about. He's probably already planning the next few arcs and doesn't want or need any of us to be his manager :P
Besides, I heard somewhere that fans tend to make bad managers :lol:

From time to time, the debate revives about whether or not Rick takes inspiration from any of the comments made on the forum. Since I don't follow the strip or the threads with the same apostolic zeal of some folks, I can't speak to evidence of that. However, a number of fans have offered some really inspired ideas on the threads devotes to "arcs we'd like to see."

There's an ancient warning about such over-the-shoulder kibbitzing, "Humans are subject to four destructive temptations - Sex, Money, Power, and the Desire to change the written word of someone else." I guess art, comics, and other story work could qualify as "written word".

So, with those disclaimers, I admit I'd like to see some more stories with the female dogs and, for that matter, a couple more female cats. I am a big fan of the "new and improved" Daisy, would like to see her again, and think she'd make a great comic or adventuring pairing with Sasha. Tarot and Sabrina are also an intriguing duo for some comic bits. Even some of the older males - Rex, Yeltsin, etc. - might pair up with them (Yeltsin trying to date Daisy).

But I don't want to go down that road too far. As I've said before, it's Rick's world and I'm a guest here. Sometimes a comic character just doesn't take off or the creator loses interest in them in favor of other "stars". As Charles Schultz said about some of the Peanuts gang, "When Lucy and Linus came along, I just lost interest in the early characters - Shermy, Violet, Patty, I couldn't make them interesting. Freida and Pig Pen were one-joke actors, and they didn't inspire me."

But ... still ... I'd love to see Daisy and Sasha do an abbott and costello bit or two. ........................ :)

I'm now thinking I wanna see more of Duchess if only because she needs to get more just desserts.

They'd have to be delivered ... social distancing, you know. `Course, snob that she is, Duchess is already a pro-distancer.

She has gotten the art of distancing down before it even was implemented!

Going back to the original post, I've always been a bit puzzled that Rick never developed the "female K9 dog who was at the King-Bailey wedding". She's depicted twice - at the ceremony and then in a close-up at the bouquet-toss. She looks like an interesting personality and the k9s could use a female on the force. There's a variety of pairings to make with her, and she might make an interesting foil for Sargeant Ralph. Ah, well ............ :(

Is the canine in question the one that is sitting next to Terrence (somebody who we haven't see at all in the past few years) in the pews? I don't know whether the dog is a male or a female.

Yes, that's her. If you have Book Five: Housepets Don't Criticize Your Lovelife, she also appears in quarter-page picture on page fifty where Karishad is helping Tarot snatch the bouquet. She's in the right side of the panel wearing a pink collar with the slashed zero sign as her dogtag. I sort of assumed she's female because of the color of the collar but, of course, I should know better.

After his appearance at the wedding scene (2013), Terrance is not seen again until he has a non-speaking walk-on in the first panel of My Life as a Teenaged Squirrel: Part Three, dated 17 July 2019. Sadly, he has not appeared again. Not enough muscles maybe.

If the dog you are talking about has a pink collar on then yes most likely it is a female character so I also agree it would have been nice to see more of her and a female on the K9 force. So is her appearance when Kari helps Tarot to snatch the bouquet in the book and not in the online comic>

I think so.
At this point, I could even applaud seeing an encore by Spring and/or Summer............. :|

Man!! It's been ages since I posted on here!! The format of this overall forum changed!!! But it is nice to see a forum that I think I made got necro'd! Never happed before!! But anyways, I get everyone wants tarot and duchess and sasha again, and no offense to their characters, but I think we have seen alot of them. But I think I agree with everyone on the female K-9 member, and daisy. However I didn't know the female K-9 member had more then one comic appearance the the wedding flower toss scene. I think I would need people in red, to circle where they(because while it appears she, rick could change them to a he) are standing and what they are doing. Also, WHY was she at the wedding? I thought it was only folks they knew?

But yeah, an encore from any female dog outside tarot, duchess, sasha, and bailey, would ne nice, even if it is a BRIEF cameo.

I'm thinking that the reason she was there was because after what happened at Jata and Sabrina's wedding Keene wanted every single group with authority there to prevent it from turning into a massive debacle.

No it really doesn't because I don't think I am correct and that is just a wild mass guess on my part.
