…like having only a minor sense of dread over Andy’s well-being. He’s a principal (or is it principle?) character, so it’s not like he isn’t going to survive this scrape.
It looks like Andy gets his licks in, but ultimately the wild dogs have bigger fish to fry. Besides, St. Bernard probably doesn’t suit their palate…
“Attackers retreat?” Interesting phrasing there… I think they just got bored. Need to find a new challenge, a new opportunity to terrorize the countryside… Besides, what does one do with wild dogs other than shoot them? It’s not like there is a canine reform school where they’d go to try to turn their lives around…
Tabby, Andy rues the day you walked into his life. Now he doesn’t just smell, he’s wounded and in need of help! What good are you?
Wellllll, this storyline might explain one of my past lapses in following Mark Trail….
Ha! Maybe I had a lapse too in the past. It seems we will follow Andy for awhile. I think that’s better than 3 months in a cave for the story line to wrap up. If we are going vintage here I’d like to see Mark with his pipe again! Bring on Elrod! Campfires & flapjacks darn it
Does North America has wild dogs? Not wolves, but wild dogs like the Dingo of Australia, the Dhole of India, or the African Cape Hunting Dog? Asking seriously.
Have, not has. Sorry.
Well, I’m not a zoologist or biologist (though I play one in the Sunday comics); but wolves, dogs, and coyotes are all related by the same genus (canis). A direct link between wolves and dogs is still somewhat controversial. The gray wolf seems to have a common ancestor to the domesticated dog.
In any event, we consider wolves and coyotes as our wild dogs.
