Drawing the coyote reminds me of what fun it was to draw Anesu. I love characters who love to physically move around and take up space.

    I started wondering how Emily could have been raised by coyotes without learning something as basic as the fact that coyotes don’t use names, before remembering that, lacking translators, the coyotes who raised Emily obviously never actually TALKED to Emily.

    So, unlike the mostly non-verbal Little Dee, who was for a time raised by three animals who talked to her and to each other and to every other animal in the vicinity, Emily grew up with, literally, no one to talk to her.

    Huh. Okay. 🙂

    Ah, wonderful proof that intellectually and philosophically canids are way smarter than humans. But let’s not bring up their decision making skills. M’kay. Great, now who wants a biscuit? More coffee, oh and let’s not bring up the fact that we all actually know who the highest intelligent species on the planet is…after all they don’t pay taxes.

    Maybe Emily was a talking toddler when she first came into the coyotes’ custody and they raised her from that point. So she talked to them and, at least at first, just took it for granted that they could understand her, because that’s probably what a very small child WOULD think in such a situation. After all, the two-legged grown-ups understood her, so why these four-legged grown-ups be any different? 😉

    The fact that, a few strips ago, she was prepared to kill and EAT a coyote seems to indicate that, by the end, she didn’t identify with them all that much, though.

    Nice touch that Emily specifies her maternal grandfather. Very often, fictional characters speak about “my grandfather” or “my grandmother” as if they have only one of each. Sometimes that IS going to be the case, of course, but it’s not going to be the case All The Time.
