So where did the "click" come from? Was the door they ran into an inside door? Serious question again: do dogs have such acute hearing that they can hear an outside door go "click"?
Anyway, how riveting. I don't know about you, but I could do without these filler strips. They had their place once upon a time, but when Lynn's set the stage for drama! drama! drama! then who cares what the dogs do?
Meanwhile, in real time, today is April's birthday, but who knows what day it is according to the strip's internal calendar. Her birthday will probably be observed in the Sunday strip.
