    I’m betting Javier had a hand in reprogramming the robodogs…

  • bob in houston

    I’ve lost the plot, did I miss a day or something??

    • Texas is a state of Mine

      BOB- No. just Chris jumping around a bit. Bad guys arrested by Sheriff. Thump leaves and now we watch the DOGS play with the rental van.

      • Bob in Houston.

        ah, ok, got the plot now!

  • EagleRising

    Chris, I received an outstanding swag bag of goodies from the Day by Day Front Counter today. Thanks so much. We have been enjoying DBD since 2008. It makes our day and we have thoroughly enjoyed how the story line tracks current events and how the characters and your art have evolved over time.

    • Spin Drift

      Me too, thanks Chris.

    Good doggies.

    I like good doggies. 🙂

    Doggies will be doggies.

  • Pamela

    I think Sam and Tuck need to give the Dogs their privacy during their courting rituals. I think the offspring will be either really cute or fluggly.

    • WayneM

      Is that where SmartCars come from?

      • Henry

        No, they’re from when a skateboard has sex with a running shoe.

      • Pamela

        Probably though Smart Cars are as smart as their programming.
        Might explain the sanders stickers

  • TOASTERS! Destroyers of The Human Race!

  • B Woodman

    I notice Sam called the vehicle, “van”, not “the van”. Anthropomorphize much?

    Aaaaand yes, dogs will be dogs, mechanical or biological. Just don’t let them lift THEIR leg on YOUR leg.

    • Chris Muir

      fixed.

    • Polly Cy

      Maybe he should write it up as VAN-dalism. Poor van, first the rent-a-thugs and now being lubricated on by robo-dawgs.

      • Polly Cy

        Or maybe those female thugs could start calling themselves the van-dolls.

        • JTC

          Or call those pigs the van-dogs, which would explain the robo-dogs attraction to the smell in the van.

          • Henry

            There’s a capitalist pig-dog running-dog joke in there somewhere.

  • B Woodman

    And yes, the #NoTrumpettes let the dogs AND the bull out.
    So, whoever backed their play, deserves to lose that rental van deposit, and maybe pay for the lose of the van as well. Where did the van go? Welllll. . . . in all the excitement that night. . . . . who knows?
    (later next week)
    Gee, neighbor, thanks for the spare parts to fix my ranch van.

    • Joseph Meyer

      Remember the first attack on the World Trade Center when the pep got busted trying to get his deposit back for the van?

          Heh

    • Polly Cy

      This strip is spawning a thousand puns: New lyrics, inspired by your “Where did the van go?” question: “Where did the Van Gogh? ‘Ere, ‘ere ear. Where did the Van Gogh? ‘Ere, ‘ere ear.”

      • B Woodman

        (APPLAUSE!!)

  • Stu Mulne

    Chris:

    Enjoying the strip!

    If you’ll forgive me, since most of the folks here should be pro-2A, just to note that the petition to allow people to carry at the RNC was put forth by one or more of the anti-2A groups.

    Now, back to the half-dressed gals and those dogs….

    • H_B

      Not going to be an issue in the first place. There have been too many threats against Donald Trump so far (plus cheerleading for an assassin from the media). The Secret Service will nix any firearms in the convention regardless of what the RNC said.

      There will, however, be lots and lots of guns outside the Convention, watching very closely what goes on inside.

  • KNO3

    Heh. Yup.

  • jackdeth72

    Question.

    Anyone else remember the 1890’s Sci-Fi film, ‘Runaways’ with Tom Selleck and Gene Simmons?

    Curious to see if and when Chris could manage a guest appearance from the LAPD IT Sergeant to keep the dogs in line.

    Just a thought.

    • MasterDiver

      Good idea, Good flick. Didn’t hurt to have Kirstie Alley do a sslloooo undress in the bug scanner. (Those things get into the DAMNDEST places!)
      Interesting side note: one of the villain’s high-tech weapons, a guided, maneuvering bullet, is now real-world ammo.

      • jackdeth72

        And a variant of that guide able round (With a DNA Fail Safe) was noted in an episode of FOX’s ‘Almost Human’ Sci-Fi cop series last year.

      • steveb919

        Don’t do that to me please. Got really caught up with the side vids also. After a couple of hours I got back to DBD.

    • GWB

      I don’t think Selleck is quite that old! 😉

      • PaulS

        I dunno, Quigley and all, the man may be immortal. LOL

      • B Woodman

        From Wiki . . . born 1945.
        First big break, “Magnum P.I.” 1980-88

        • Spin Drift

          Actually, first big break was a two episode gig on “The Rockford Files” as Lance White, Private Investigator. And he’s really a cool guy.

          Actually ran into him at the Las Vegas Antique Arms show about 15 years ago. He was looking at Winchesters and I was looking at Parkers and we almost knocked each other down when backing up to get a better look at the guns. Notoriously tight table spacing at the Riviera Convention Center. Damn, I’ve got the “Magnun” theme stuck in my head.

      • JTC

        1890’s…didn’t TS do something with time travel once? Simmons OTOH, I think is actually from that era. Maybe Kirstie too, she looks about a hundred these days 😉

  • Bill G

    Cry Havoc! And let slip the dogs of Damon!
    Wanting to be sure I was misquoting the Bard correctly I searched the terms and learned this:
    “The military order Havoc! was a signal given to the English military forces in the Middle Ages to direct the soldiery (in Shakespeare’s parlance ‘the dogs of war’) to pillage and chaos.”

    • Unca Walt

      Out-fargin-standing.

      Thank you.

    • eon

      It was in fact originally a French tactic called “chevauxsee”, literally “changing horses”. Knights would roam the countryside with remounts , burning villages as they went, remaining in the saddle for days. The comparison to American Civil War-era raiders in “Bloody Kansas”, and such units as Col. John Singleton Mosby’s, is pretty obvious.

      Technology changes. Tactics, not so much.

      clear ether

      • B Woodman

        Sounds like what the Russkies used against Unkle Adolf when he came to call. The “scorched earth” tactic, leave nothing for the enemy as you fall back.

      • H_B

        And in Germany these days, the term is “Refugee Status”.

  • Bill G

    And BTW, where’s the new chef in all of this?

    • GWB

      He danged well better be smoking a cow or pig or two!

      • B Woodman

        Better not be Tabasco

        • John Greer

          To get Tabasco tender enough the chef will need to be pretty handy with a pressure cooker.

          • JTC

            To get close enough to Tabasco that chef will need to be pretty handly with something with a big bore.

          • Pamela

            Lots of tequila and one of these: https://barrett.net or something with Nitro in the name

  • PaulS

    Regarding Damon’s condition, was it induced by the immense satisfactory shock of viewing Jan au naturale? Pupils dilate when we are interested, and that would cause extreme interest.

  • AlexJ

    Well Doggies!

    BTW – When I attempt to view on my cellphone, there is no “Comments” button nor “random” button. Anybody else having that issue?

  • Bill M

    I’m sure someone’s said this before, but the sheriff looks a bit like Burt Reynolds to me. Am I needing new glasses?
