    I love her dad's dog cup. He looks like he dove into the dog life with both feet!

  3. Laxantes says:

    Happy 9/11 Eve's mom!

    Also, great page, I loved that eve in the last panel.

  4. Marvin Choi says:

    eve gets more and more kawaii

  5. Phasma Felis says:

    Today I spent 20 minutes playing Stick with my neighbor's dog. He loves all the Stick games: Fetch, Tug-of-War, Eat the Stick… That last one's kind of a solo thing, though.

    Dogs are just the best.

  6. Jiles Lumbergh says:

    I like how Meredith square rooted Hannah's facial features to make the parents' faces . Is this the first time they have appeared or am I forgetting an arch?

  7. Black Drazon says:

    Eve showing her belly!

  8. Beccah says:

    *HURK *SQUEEEEE PUPPEH!!! (That is the most realistically lovable pupface I have ever seen outside of real-life sidewalk encounters)

  9. Josalyne says:

    A DOG!

    Hilarious! I love this comic, so glad you're back from your summer hiatus!

  10. wykstrad says:

    Haha, Mr. Thompson is doing a classic Hannah pose in the panel where he's saying how Hannah is just like him.

    Also, great job with the pitbull head. That's the most accurate rendering I've seen in a comic strip.

  11. HateMachine says:

    OH MY GOD THAT PUPPY! Pit bulls are the best!

  12. MerchManDan says:

    It took me a couple of read-throughs to realize Hannas dad is asking her if she packed her marmot. You can imagine how confused I was until a quick search revealed this: http://marmot.com/
    Now, it makes sense.

  13. JennyB says:

    Aawww who's the center of attention? WHO'S the center of attention?? YOU are! YES you ARE!!

  14. Lara says:

    Is that a Pitt bull or a bull terrier?

  15. Kyle H. says:

    I wanna hang with the elder Thompsons. They seem pleasant.

  16. seann says:

    The next to last panel= Meredith's best tweet ever.

  17. MerchManDan says:

    Oh, finally realized: There's Marigold and Puget Sean.

  18. oda.krell says:

    One before last panel: proof that Eve is the twin sister of Kate Beaton's "Pony" http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=339

  19. oceans says:

    i'd like to believe all the words surrounding the ecstatic doggie in the first panel are his own thoughts.. like.. "omg omg. omg! i'm being pet! yay yay yay yayyyy"

  20. Bruceski says:

    My mother's trained the neighbor's dogs to stop barking when we tell them to. Of course that's also trained them to bark up a storm when they first see us so we'll tell them to stop and give them a treat.

  21. saoki says:

    That is the doggiest dog ever drawn. I love it.

  22. Dave says:

    So I yhaven't read Oactopus Pie in a longlong while and jumped in to this current story arc but had to (belatedly) say that I FREAKING LOVE this dog's faces. 😀

  23. Shras says:

    Eve, I am waiting for the day you get a puppy of your own. I. Can. Not. Wait! Epicness!!
