Hahahahaha! Another house crushed! I feel like Godzilla.

        Hey! All my dogs have always adored cats! And not in a way that makes ~anyone (even the Cat) think “good with ketchup? Or would mustard be best?”

        Yes, my dogs love mustard and/or ketchup!

    It’s surprising the reserves you have when your life is on the line. One time we had hiked almost 20 miles in full battle rattle. Packs and all. We were dog tired. Then bullets started kicking up dirt around us and we found out we weren’t that tired after all. The next three miles to a defensible position seemed to only take ten minutes.

    Sounds like she has had surgery.

    Just because they look like canids means literally nothing. They are aliens and it seems they have no empathy to other species. At least ones that doesn’t frighten them in the least. They act totally removed from their emotions. Like science is with lower animals.

    Like on the farm, don’t give them names.

    And if that is their normal form and not just from their research on human psychology they are making use of it none-the-less.

    I know this is WAAAAY too logical for a comic strip, BUT …

    I wonder why none of the neighbors in any of these strips (particularly the one above) are calling the police to complain about the noise, to complain about the construction company doing house demolitions at this time of night, to report a large airplane (because, c’mon, a SPACESHIP?) has crashed, crushing the house next door, … ANYTHING!

    Or maybe the canids (creatures that look like dogs but walk on two legs) have covered the entire city with an SEP field, so no one SEES the spaceship etc. (SEP — courtesy of Douglas Adams — a field that causes people to ignore things like spaceships landing on a cricket pitch because it’s Somebody Else’s Problem … )

    In fact the streets are deserted and quiet. Reminds me of the somni field used in “The Midwich Cuckoos” though the chosen family aren’t bothered by it. So something is keeping things too quite unless something the aliens are doing dampens the activity.

    Their landing isn’t sadistic. You have to have emotions for that. I say they did it because it was easier to reach the house. And deaths are of no concern to them. Their back up family is still intact so…

    I must say, for an unsymmetrical chase, this one certainly is a pip. Not sure how it could end but with enough houses smashed, the Spanish Air Force is bound to send a couple of fighters to investigate. Then things could get cumbersome.
