This is why. Gregg Eshelman November 4, 2019 at 5:50 am 3 years ago Dog food with corn can turn many a dog into a fartiste. Jude October 31, 2019 at 1:07 am 3 years ago I’d say laughing about Ruddock’s expression has more to do with maturity than not. Immature people like to laugh at others but you’re laughing over what you drew. If maturity means not finding humour in silly things, I’d never want to grow up. So far *every* expression Ruddock’s has had, I find hilarious. So far in this new series, I love seeing Emily and Ruddock’s together. The big-eyed puppy aliens I find irritating (them, NOT your story!) probably because I generally dislike little dog breeds. Let’s hope they’re only in the early part of your story. If they continue to play a major role though, it won’t stop me from reading Spacetrawler.

Daktari D October 31, 2019 at 2:57 am 3 years ago Oh my god! First Bikkie, not Ruddock! I’m loving this. Thank you for making me laugh. I sure need that these days. War Pig October 31, 2019 at 3:24 am 3 years ago He’s a little close to the fire to be doing that. He could wind up as coyote flambe’. Rikard October 31, 2019 at 5:26 am 3 years ago As owner of three dogs, 35-40 kilos each, I can relate. The Old One generally sniffs his own and looks at you indignantly as if it is your fault, before leaving the room and the smell. Garth Hill October 31, 2019 at 8:19 am 3 years ago priceless. =) KQY October 31, 2019 at 9:42 am 3 years ago We had a cat, Skeezix, who was a super cuddler. She’d lay on your chest and nuzzle your neck and purr up a storm. And. Then. Ssssss. Silent but Deadly! Woo! And, she never seemed to notice. But you would! And, she’d do that when you picked her up, too. We got to saying ‘Don’t Squeeze the Skeeze!’ So, you now know what I thought when I read today’s strip! 😛 3oranges October 31, 2019 at 11:55 am 3 years ago Careful, Ruddock. This kind of luck, ten thousand years on, is where pugs and chihuahuas came from. Leland November 1, 2019 at 12:13 am 3 years ago I regularly laugh out loud when I read your comics. That kind of joy is hard to come by. Thank you. May we both never grow up. That is the main reason I supported your kickstarter. Night-Gaunt49 November 1, 2019 at 12:19 am 3 years ago Quiet, intimate, funny times here. Kaidah November 1, 2019 at 8:35 am 3 years ago My ex-wife has a dog that makes that exact face, like all the time. She’s about the dumbest creature in all creation but we love her nonetheless. DSL November 2, 2019 at 5:54 am 3 years ago Does the campfire seem a little more energetic in the last panel than in the penultimate? Must have been some good beans. Pete Rogan November 2, 2019 at 7:52 pm 3 years ago Actually, no, Emily. That’s your new world odor. It had to be said. So shoot me. DSL November 2, 2019 at 9:12 pm 3 years ago Been enough shootin’. Shootin’ beans, that is. Eric November 3, 2019 at 1:55 am 3 years ago I mean…what did she expect, giving him beans.. steve gallacci November 3, 2019 at 11:10 am 3 years ago Gah! Love the toonie take on the Coyote art. And the rest of it of course. Joe England November 16, 2019 at 4:39 pm 3 years ago Y’know, I’ve heard that that “alpha dog” stuff is really just a myth. But I don’t know for sure. Tomn November 23, 2019 at 2:20 pm 3 years ago Bit late, but it’s more that the “alpha male” behavior (fighting for dominance through shows of strength, etc.) turned out to be the behavior of unrelated wolves thrown together in captivity. In the wild the “alpha” is…mom and dad. Because packs are usually families, see, so the parents lead and the cubs follow without having to thump their metaphorical chests over who’s more dominant. Essentially saying that wolves engage in “alpha male behavior” is kinda like looking at a US prison population and extrapolating that behavior to explain human society. The researchers who originally coined the term “alpha male” are slightly peeved with how popular culture has kept their old, flawed model alive when recent research contradicts it all. ajw April 15, 2022 at 9:44 pm 8 months ago This might be my favorite of your comics. Ruddock’s writing and characterization is just marvelous. Christopher Baldwin April 15, 2022 at 10:53 pm 8 months ago Thank you @ajw. 🙂 Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
