The human denied saying something she didn’t say. I wouldn’t say humans were geniuses, either. While we coyotes, super-genius. Eric October 28, 2019 at 8:07 am 2 years ago What did you do to get a guest spot in the comic? 😉 Coyoty October 29, 2019 at 2:23 am 2 years ago Emily was eating her pack members long before I discovered this comic. Doug Relyea October 28, 2019 at 2:09 am 2 years ago Channel Stephen Pastis much? ronald October 28, 2019 at 7:07 am 2 years ago 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. 🙂 Rex Vivat October 28, 2019 at 1:29 pm 2 years ago It’s a wonder she can actually speak, really. I guess we never did know just how old was she when she finally encountered humans, though. Tim McCormack October 28, 2019 at 7:22 am 2 years ago This coyote is well-written. Keith October 28, 2019 at 8:09 am 2 years ago 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.

The only ‘roo we are familiar with was horribly abused for a long time. Nomi October 28, 2019 at 12:49 pm 2 years ago Me likey this coyote. Clearly an alpha — but without a pack? Or with Emily is he(she?) starting a side pack? Thracecius October 28, 2019 at 2:17 pm 2 years ago Coyote stretches are cute, just like dog stretches. Why someone so basic is cute, I’ll never understand. 🙂 Thracecius October 28, 2019 at 2:17 pm 2 years ago *something, not someone Meran January 21, 2021 at 5:31 pm 1 year ago If it’s named, it has become someONE. DSL October 28, 2019 at 7:40 pm 2 years ago How are you defining “basic”? The insulting “Urban Dictionary” meaning(s)? soweli nasa October 28, 2019 at 3:54 pm 2 years ago I translated half of this into toki pona, because I like the idea that coyotes speak toki pona. https://www.reddit.com/r/tokipona/comments/doe4rd/when_you_create_a_new_pack_its_a_starter_pack/ ronald October 28, 2019 at 11:07 pm 2 years ago 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. David Brantley III October 29, 2019 at 2:17 pm 2 years ago Ruddock is my new favorite character… aside from all of my other favorite characters. But he is currently my favorite, favorite.
