      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.

    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.

    Good doggies.

    I like good doggies. 🙂

    Doggies will be doggies.

  • April 5, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    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.

    • April 6, 2016 at 8:07 am

      Is that where SmartCars come from?

      • April 6, 2016 at 6:40 pm

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

      • April 6, 2016 at 6:42 pm

        Probably though Smart Cars are as smart as their programming.

    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.

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

      • April 6, 2016 at 11:53 am
        Polly Cy

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

      • April 6, 2016 at 3:44 pm

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

      • April 6, 2016 at 6:42 pm

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

    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.

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

      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.”

    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….

    • April 6, 2016 at 5:32 am

      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.

  • April 6, 2016 at 4:05 am

    Heh. Yup.

  • April 6, 2016 at 4:24 am


    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.

    • April 6, 2016 at 5:19 am

      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.

      • April 6, 2016 at 6:08 am

        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.

      • April 6, 2016 at 12:03 pm

        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.

    • April 6, 2016 at 7:02 am

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

      • April 6, 2016 at 7:35 am

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

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

        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.

        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 😉

    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.”

      Thank you.

      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.

        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.

      • April 6, 2016 at 8:01 pm

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

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

    • April 6, 2016 at 7:02 am

        Better not be Tabasco

      • April 6, 2016 at 3:01 pm

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

      • April 6, 2016 at 3:52 pm

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

      • April 6, 2016 at 6:49 pm

        Lots of tequila and one of these: or something with Nitro in the name

  • April 6, 2016 at 7:53 am

    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.

  • April 6, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    Well Doggies!

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