This strip makes me wonder if Ralph is some kind of robot or something. I get that he was suspicious, but he seems so... hollow...
Don't get me wrong; I think he's a good character and has good morals. I just don't see any compassion or emotions. (except his anger when he flipped out at the wedding...)

I really don't get Kevin's question. It could be my headache messing with me, but the "chasing" doesn't make sense. (man, my head feels like I've been hit for real...)
Is it that Kevin is assuming Fido likes Sabrina for the exercise?

He's clearly a no-nonsense sort of police dog that takes his work seriously. It's a pretty understandable character, the way I see it.

No, no... he's referencing the trope of dogs chasing cats. He's always been a bit "simple," so he doesn't quite understand what a strange romance like Fido's and Sabrina's would entail.

Not necessarily. Sure, Bino will enjoy torturing his brother out of the Club (provided Fido has not become a true hero for the pool stunt by then), but now Fido can love Sabrina without any fears for his job as cop anymore. PLUS, he may get to become best buddy with Peanut and Grape, yay!^^
Not to mention, didn't Rick posted a drawing on facebook of Tarot that sorta hints that Fido and Sabrina are going to be okay?

Ralph's black eye makes him look really mad for some reason.

I wouldn't say that so quickly. He still has Fox and Bino to deal with, and Rick hasn't said this is the end yet.
I don't think that Fox really has such a big problem with Fido's relationship with Sabrina. Him not liking 'catlovers' was just following Bino in the past. Probably he will fine with the relationship itself, if he thinks about it, and he has had a little time already. There will be a bigger problem with the fact that Fido didn't inform him earlier.
King will have a similar problem with Fox in the future. Wonder when this secret will be revealed.

I get the sneaking suspicion that he looks that way because he is that way. He was in charge when a massive beatdown happened, of which he was a party. None too pleasing of an event and certainly a cause for anger.

I think this has to do more with the idea that dogs chase cats, typically, and now that Fido is in a relationship with a cat the standard roles have dynamically changed.

Oh look, no one gives a care. Good for Fido, who managed to get the fairer punishment (instead of getting off scot-free. That's a pet peeve of mine. Punishment where due must be served even if lightly, regardless of how noble the reason)... Okay, maybe he also deserved Kevin's navieté, but some beg to differ on that

Yeah, he looks really curious in panel 7 and just confused in panel 8, there's no grin like he's teasing Fido. More like "I *really* don't see the appeal, please explain it".
If anything he'd be mad at missing out on the brawl! I bet he could take Jata!
I would even go so far and say, if Kevin was here then he would had jumped in for Fido instead of the Wolves :lol:

At least Fido has his K9 Buddies on his side. :D

That's right, it's a matter of Fido, it's an his personal thing, and it hasn't to involve his work, despite it can create suspects there and finally has caused all this trouble. However Fido, you must accept the three weeks of suspension because of your irruption at the wedding, you had to aspect this (maybe could have been worse).
Ralph, your professionality at work even in this moment can't guarantee to Fido that his secret remained between you and the other police buddies. Apprently, you're showing to don't care of the weird relationship between a dog and a cat, but can really be so in your private moments? Wouldn't you all spread the voice? Then, probably Fido was feeling kinda ashamed to confess it to someone, that's also how a secret works... But, anwyay, the things ended differently: now everyone in the city knows the secret. Now all can happen.
LOL Kevin, you seem to don't know how a love story can born, doesn't matter of the species... But, are you still Sasha's latest boyfriend?

Hiding his relationship may not have been the best choice, but considering how interspecies relationships are looked upon by most dogs (cats don't really seem to care so much...) you can't really blame him for trying to keep it a secret...

Oh Kevin you're so cute and goofy.

Weren't they best buddies? Why does is Ralph so distant, then?
Well they're at the police station dealing with the aftermath of all this, so I think it's still considered a professional situation.

I don't think it's ever really been indicated that Ralph and Fido are good friends. The fact that Ralph was able to be so suspicious of Fido kind of indicates the opposite. They both work well together, but I think that's about it. So Ralph is happy that he was wrong and Fido's still a good guy. Just because you are friendly with your coworkers doesn't mean you are friends with your coworkers. Police tend to have a tighter bond than the average job but that doesn't mean Ralph and Fido and Kevin go out for orange sodas on the weekends.
I recall Kevin going with Fido to the tackle shop.. even though Kevin had a different idea of what that shop was about.
Also, Ralph has also had his moment of casual behaviour, specially on the Aztec treasure story arc, so I trully assumed the k9 trio were best friends!
valerio wrote:Ralph was BORN professional :twisted:
But seriously, he's definitely one dog to have certain priorities. But his speech, formal as it was, sounded of friendship in its own way.
He still looks pretty angry.
Maybe that's why he is being so professional, to repress his desire to strangle Fido for causing that whole mess?

He seems to be trying to measure his words carefully but stills makes his statements and questions sound akward.

I ruined my own life doing that.

They are indoubitably a perfect match.

Sasha is so cronically ridiculous whenever she says what goes on her mind however, that it would not surprise me if Rick got sued for being discriminative or something.

Truth be told, though, if that actually happened, it would make like an earthquake and crack me up! :lol:

Since pets cannot be ruled under US law, or any state/country law for that matter, I'm just wondering whether they have to abide by some pet law other than the GOE? (which really isn't a law, more like a licence to live with humans?)
