another vicious little wiener dog that needs put down by government thugs?
You ever go up against one of those little terrors? They were originally bred to chase badgers down holes. Also, they jump.
I watched a program some years ago where someone had trained a pack of a dozen or so as guard dogs, the bad guy in the demonstration never had a chance 😉
We had a 45-pound Grosse-Dachshund. Super affectionate and absolutely fearless. At least one would-be burglar wound up on the wrong side of his temper.
When they jump up to say hello that snout is like a knockout punch to the face.
I once saw a ten-pound Dachsie send a 90-pound German Shepherd about his business with that cute little jump- when she chomped his nose.
Dachshunds are the Klingons of the canine world. Their “fight or flight” response does not have a “flight” setting.
And their opinion of anything other than their “family” intruding on their turf is “Today is a Good Day to Die”.
And their opinion of anything other than their “family” intruding on their turf is “Today is a Good Day for you to Die”.
Fixed to for you.
Our old Dachsie at 16 is the wisest most affectionate dog I’ve ever known; he can communicate better than most people, his instinct kicks in when a ne’er do well comes around and he barks his big bellowy bark at them until they leave or I come to check out the intruder…otherwise just wants to sleep, eat, take rides in the truck and nighttime walks with Papa looking for the old black bear who meanders out of the state park next door looking for picnic baskets or trash cans; so far all we have found is a couple of perfectly symmetrical pyramids of round bear poop turds…
16 equates to 80 in dachshund years and he has his back problems including surgery a while back and skin issues like most of them do, but then again by the time I’m 80 I’ll have been dead several years…
Old Ozzy; what a good boy.
Y’all better be careful talking about Dachsies, I could go on for hours about mine. Eon is right about Dachs being the Klingons of the dog world.
Ron, it’s not just the snout, that whole “punkin head” is like a rock!
At least the Dawgs don’t have their “noses” in her crotch…
I always knew it would come to bloody civil war – at least at the endgame.
In all of history no ruling class has ever went quietly into the night…
…and a wounded and dying animal is most dangerous when cornered.
Like the title of a movie: “There Will Be Blood.”
Come on in and meet my two pit bull mix dogs. The male (who is a year younger) will lick you to death, but do not trust the female. She will rip your hand off in a New York second.
“The female of the species is deadlier than the male…”
“The female of the species is deadlier than the male…”
How true it is MasterDiver
Good doggie! 😀
Meant as reply to steveb919
“but do not trust the female. She will rip your hand off in a New York second.”
Isn’t that the way… My son-in-law has two 100 lb+ Bull Mastiffs that will do the same thing to you.
I suspect that we are looking at a “Combined Arms” operation. The terrier is infantry, point for the heavy units just behind.
Long, long, long ago, a Tenderfoot Scout spent a night in a backyard tent. Without training, a terrier mutt took a post outside the tent until breakfast, That job was deep in her DNA.
many years ago, Mom had just had one of the little ones. She put her to bed in a drop down crib, back when those were still legal. Our beagle/cocker mix, herself heavily pregnant, slid under the dropped down side, which I wouldn’t have believed she could have done even without a full payload of pups. They know who are theirs to protect.
Miss her still.
Subtle artwork. The pheromone dispenser stays close to her stimulant and Daddy stands alone (well, with the “dawgs”). Little nothings that say a lot.
Half expecting the triptych of Erinyes (the three Furies); Sam, Mari, and Mrs. Cates (no doubt a stunner like Kimiko), to meet Jack and Zed over their accidentally locking Kiko in the shed when she had just come over early to help.
The best defense being a good offense and all….
Then, coyly explain, so as not to waste the day they had spent the day wedding planning.
Even if some or all of law enforcement (700,000 max) or the military (1,400,000 Regular, 800,000 Guard and Reserve) go over to the Dark Side, the Progtards still won’t have the numbers to take on 140 million Citizens with more than 400 million firearms, and a few trillion rounds of ammunition.
But never underestimate their stupidity, they will still give it a go, because like the Joker (BLM, ANTIFA, et al) they just want to see it all burn.
The biggest threat will be the 20 million or so people so addicted to a variety of substances, legal and illicit, from caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol, to meth, opioids, and crack, that their sole focus will be on doing whatever it takes to get their next fix.
The first 72 hours will be a charnel house and a primary mission will be minimizing the collateral damage as these zombies off themselves in pursuit of feeding their habit.
You forgot all the people on Mood Meds and the Psych Meds
Pamela, the 20 million number includes them.
It does NOT include anyone one maintenance medications for physical diseases and ailments, just those who cannot function without one or more daily chemical fixes for their brain.
Ouch. How many are on meds due to missing vitamins and minerals…
Their excuses for their excesses don’t hold up.
For instance, the SPLC is “alarmed” that there are (according to them) 5,000 members of the KKK in the United States.
There are probably that many members of the International Plastic Modelers’ Society in the state of Ohio, alone, to judge by the number of “Buckeyes” alone who show up for the IPMS annual convention in Columbus, OH every February.
If you add up the Klan, the ANP, and etc., they probably equal maybe ten percent of the American membership of the Society for Creative Anachronism, to judge from Pennsic War every August.
I don’t know how to break this to the progressives, but not everybody who disagrees with them wears a hood or a hakenkreuzer.
And we have them and the white hood crowd outnumbered.
HEY!!! Leave us Plastic Phanatics outta this!
Seriously – don’t forget all the gang members being continuously trained as ruthless shock troops in the Blue cities. I have no doubt they’ll be immediately recruited by the city governments they already have a working relationship with. The FIB estimates their numbers as 1.4 Million. That’s probably radically understated in the decade old report.
SCA 40 plus years. I’m your guy in a knife fight. I also carry everywhere.
SCA = Society for Creative Anachronism?
An expert at forging and using blades of every shape, size, and description?
So you’re the guy who built the supersonic trebuchet?
You got any good recipes for Greek Fire? (Asking for a friend)
I hope this is not too long, but can’t resist posting it:
George Gamow, in a book called “Thirty Years That Shook Physics” about the development of quantum physics wrote this personal anecdote about the Father of quantum physics, Niels Bohr and it is priceless. Bohr led the Bohr Institute in Copenhagen (only re-named after him in 1965) and was much beloved by the scientists he gathered at the institute during those years, almost as a father to his children, says Gamow. In the passage, Gamow mentions how much of the quantum physics work was done late at night along with the “casual” schedules (ie, virtually none — you worked and went home whenever you liked):
…But still everybody made some progress in work, especially in the evening, which is the most inspiring time for theoretical physicists. This evening work in the Institute’s library was often interrupted by Bohr, who would say that he was very tired and would like to go to the movies.
The only movies he liked were wild Westerns (Hollywood style), and he always needed a couple of his students to go with him and explain the complicated plots involving friendly and hostile Indians, brave cowboys and desperados, sheriffs, barmaidens, gold-diggers, and other characters of the Old West.
But his theoretical mind showed even in these movie expeditions. He developed a theory to explain why although the villain always draws first, the hero is faster and manages to kill him. This Bohr theory was based on psychology. Since the hero never shoots first, the villain has to decide when to draw, which impedes his action.
The hero, on the other hand, acts according to a conditioned reflex and grabs the gun automatically as soon as he sees the villain’s hand move. We disagreed with this theory, and the next day I went to a toy store and bought two guns in Western holders. We shot it out with Bohr, he playing the hero, and he “killed” all his students.
Ok, ok, it’s just that the reserve that Zed seems to be exhibiting in the strip in the first panel after the dawg’s revelation just made me think he is that “hero” waiting for the “villain” to draw first. (Hopefully Jack is wiser than that. We’ll see…)
Great story about a brilliant man.
There are no impulse functions in nature. “What comes before” (e.g. the waggle by a professional golfer before the swing) matters.
A Naval Aviator in his late 20s stopped by the paraloft of the Reserve Aggressor squadron to drop off updated knee board cards for their upcoming mission flying against his squadron. He was amazed to see a bunch of Reservists in their late 3os and early 40s, who were mostly airline pilots in their regular jobs, “stretching like they were getting ready to play in the Super Bowl.”
When he asked why, the Aggressor Flight Lead replied: “Because we want to win.”
“the reserve that Zed seems to be exhibiting in the strip in the first panel after the dawg’s revelation”
Well, the dawg has really said nothing more than there is some serious attraction happening… and everybody pretty much already knows that.
Maybe. All I can say is that “D212! HEEL!”, a calm-but-firm extended index finger, flagged whistle note, and lowered eyelids on a slightly tilted-back head feels like they are dripping with portent to me. We of course already know Z and J are apparently about equally matched from a previous encounter. As I said above, we’ll see… 🙂
I was thinking that Zed is a little slow on the uptake, and the storm will break tomorrow (tonight) when he realizes what the dawg said.
One thought – wouldn’t there also be male pheromones in the mix?
Bohr was correct. Speaking as an ex-crime lab guy, I learned in abnormal psychology that statistically, the first man to “draw” lost 97% of all “gunfights”.
Wyatt Earp made the same observation. In the O.K. Corral incident, every member of the Clanton faction drew first. Earp had his revolver (a Smith & Wesson .45 “Schofield”, not a Colt) in his coat pocket, and he still managed to get off the first shot.
Earp also said that the experienced “pistoleer” watched his opponent’s eyes, not his gun hand. There was and is a distinct change when the decision to strike has been made, and experience can teach how to detect it.
First of all, Wyatt Earp was mentioned in an article for using a Smith and Wesson “American” which was a .44 caliber with a heeled bullet similar to a .22. Schofields were a military firearm and sold to the army. Secondly, Billy Clanton and Wyatt Earp fired together as the opening shots. Then there was a pause. Wyatt had singled out Frank McLaury for being the most dangerous so Wyatt picked him out, shooting him in the stomach. Billy fired at Wyatt and missed. There is no evidence Frank had drawn first. Perhaps during the slight pause, Ike Clanton ran up to Wyatt, inadvertently shielding Wyatt and showed he was unarmed and stated as such. Wyatt told Ike to “get to fighting or get away”. All of that during a thirty second gunfight which spilled into the street. So the person who tried to kill the Earps, accidentally saved one and since Wyatt didn’t kill Ike that swayed Judge Spizer to release the Earps and Holiday from further prosecution.
“Who you callin’ ‘bro’, white boy?”
Is this the new “What you mean ‘we’, kemosabe?”
Witness recent events up here where the ‘local police’ (and the federal ones) were only too willing to trample the rights of the populace because that’s all they’ll hire now, steroid driven low IQ gym monkeys who can’t wait to ‘see some action’ and would have been fired long before their probationary period was over when I started but now are commended for doing little potato’s dirty work for him. Far too many officers aren’t the ones that used to ‘serve and protect’ anymore, they’re not hired to do that, they’re hired to ‘enforce’ and if they have to make the laws up on the spot then they eagerly do. They make no distinction between gangbanger or housewife and relish the thought of attacking either, preferable the unarmed ones who don’t fight back and ‘respect authority’. They’re easier to put down.
Heh … looks like some disharmony on the Feeb breeching team. Better send ‘em all back to Quantico for some more corporate Disney sponsored DEI training and homoerotic team building exercises.
Matter of fact … those Feebs all look qualified for private security jobs at Disneyland. You know … policing park guests on their use of adjectives and placing extra special security scrutiny on any heterosexual families visiting the park.
F.B.I. … Famous But Incompetent
Nice Doggies. You want a belly rub…
Nobody sees Zed’s packing.
Inside his coat on his left side. What would be remarkable is if Zed wasn’t packing, and probably more than one firearm.
I mean you got rattlesnakes, coyotes, the feral hogs, and the occasional chupacabra. Of course he’s packing.
Oh, you mean human invaders….
Did see what I thought to be a fully semi-automatic pistol butt carried left-side cross-draw. But frankly, that’s no more notable than the fact that Zed is wearing pants. I would certainly expect a pistol (two or three) as part of his EDC carry. Even my slovenly self, nowhere near the lofty rating of Low Speed – High Drag, is carrying a compact 9mm with a reload as I read the comics in my Spaced Coast home.
Oooooopps – Wrong again! Not a (traditional) pistol, but a personal protection weapon in a rifle caliber, slung over shoulder single point. Something like a SIG Rattler with a vertical foregrip that would make it (if ATF “legal”) an SBR. I await further education.
Had to enlarge the comic to see it on my dinoputer’s tiny monitor
Me blonde. Very nice Zed/ Chris.
“Oh, you mean human invaders….” ~ and feral feds
I have a feeling that mama-Sam is about to land on this whole thing (including how she knocks Zed off his Don Quixote episode) like a ton of bricks.
After the soon-to-be wedding which is takes the pressure off the kids, the honeymoon in Argentina will bring young Jack around.
There will be peace in the valley or the boys are about to get themselves cut off.
Face it Steve, there is no “or” about it.
There SHALL be peace in the valley, because, well, “female of the species” and all that…..
‘Cause if Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!
If Zed wanted a “firepower demonstration” that had a lasting impact on Jack, he would have Naomi do it, after she called Zed “Boss.”
With ‘Toly by Jack’s side doing the Tim Conway deadpan commentary:
“You know, she broke my nose once….”
“I got off light on that one….”
“ ‘Course that was AFTER we ran away to Vegas and eloped….”
Make sure young Jack knows exactly what he is getting into with these females of the species.
When all these pheromones get aligned with the phases of the moon, Zed, Jack, ‘Toly, Travis, and probably Mo (Jeff) will be hiding out in a Man Cave in the barn drinking Shiner Bock and watching sports highlights and old action movies, waiting for the storm to pass, and trying to get Amazon and Fedex to make bulk deliveries of dark chocolate, flowers, and single barrel tequila up to the houses.
Because as Pamela’s dad said on a similar occasion: “ ‘Nam was easier.”
Leaving the poor dawgs there to deal with that pheromone overload all by their lonesomes?
I mean as discussed previously, depending on the depth of their anthropomorphism programming, that’s either sick or cruel…
The TRUTH hurts!!!
