Oh hey, Lars!

The Puppy catches up with Lars the Norwegian Elkhound at the curling sheet. She has a one-sided chat with him, and when he notices her, he says he is glad they're still living. So am I, bub.

Lars! You remember Lars, don’t you?

(I haven’t migrated the strips over from the other site but he showed up in 2010 and again in 2012.)

He’s a Norwegian Elkhound, so he speaks Norwegian, but he’s glad he and the Puppy are still living, and so am I. Apparently he’s realized his dream of joining the Norwegian curling team. This has been our Valentine’s day episode, thank you and goodnight.

The Saddest Mom Joke

On walkies I meet the older brothers of the feral kittens I was in love with. I tell them I forgot them, they tell me so did their mom. The Puppy leads me away with a cheery assurance that they're fine while I blubber.

Actual conversation I imagined on walkies one day WHAT OF COURSE I TALK TO EVERY CAT I MEET.

The older peachy creams have been in the comic before, you may recall them as the first orange kittens and also the random purrkour cat. They’re about a year old now and possibly prove the Puppy’s point that cats are much better off without me getting attached.
