Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

Comic is almost done, but adobe and photoshop are being a bear and I don’t have time to finish it before I get to work. (Edit: software just finished updating and I think it will be okay now?) But honestly, y’all are lucky that I am even bothering this week, because LOOK AT THIS BABY!

We just got her on Saturday and she doesn’t even have a name yet. But she is SO soft, and SO cuddly and SO sweet. The cats are Not Pleased, but have been braver than anticipated. I have told them both that they were my fuzzies first and I will always love them forever.

We love her so much already. she’s going to be SO smart and I have big plans for trying to train her.

    Also, my car is fixed! My brother has basic car proficiency and found a good deal on a pair of HEATED mirrors (fancy!) and put them on today. So he and my SIL met the puppy and then we all ate spaghetti, and I need to make him a batch of Chocolate Doom Cookies for recompense.

    Nice, reads like everyone is doing well this week?

    The cats will adjust. In no time at all they’ll be Best Buds.

    Heh. We adopted a lab mix puppy once. My cat Darcy’s first reaction was what you’d expect, HISS! SPIT! Within a couple hours she had the dog wrapped around her metaphorical pinkie.

    A few years later we got a rescue rottie puppy. Same thing: immediate reaction was as you’d expect; had an adoring slave two hours later.

    Darcy was awesome.

    To quote every robot in “Freefall” upon meeting Florence, “Doggy!”

    Note for those who are not familiar with that webcomic: Florence Ambrose is a Bowman’s Wolf (uplifted red wolf) and an engineer. So if you name this one Florence I fear you may be setting the training bar a bit high ^_^.

    Enjoy your Chocolate Doom Cookies! (You are baking more for yourself, right?)

    I have seen kittens raised by dogs and they try to be doggos. So I wonder how much climbing a puppy raised by kitties will do.

    I’ve always had both dogs and cats, and all except my Pixel have entered the household as a baby with other grown animals already there. (I got her while I lived away and she grew up as an only cat and was introduced to the others as a young adult.) The critters be how they be.

    The cats are cats, the dogs are dogs, and everyone is a mammal.

    I almost had a heart attack when you said the comic was almost done, I hope you mean the next update not the whole story. Val and Isauro *need* to get back together and at this point it looks like they’re a hundred years away from that

    Lol, no, the next PAGE is almost done. I meant to have it up for a late update for last week and then Life got away from me, so you’re stuck with the baby picture until Wednesday. Oh, how you shall suffer.
