Honest Sam


A veterinarian is a doctor, right?

For animals, yes.



It didn't seem right to have a baby delivering a doctor without a police escort.

We're lucky. That's Florence across the street.

Doc, please keep your feet and torso inside the vehicle until we come to a complete stop.

Hi, Flo. We found your doctor. We need to go before the police catch up. You guys have fun.

After that ride, having dinner with a talking wolf is going to seem positively normal.

Hello, Winston. I'm glad you could come.


I didn't know Wolves hugged.

What? I was raised by humans. Did you think I was going to sniff you?

A hug avoids all that by puffing the shirt scents out the neckline and directly into my nose.

You're looking better now. How is your leg?

Not bad. Still hurts now and then.

How are your legs? Your feet are squeaking.

Fine. You're hearing my plastic shoe covers.

They're interesting. It sounds like your boots are full of rodents.

Let's find a locker for these unintentional squeak toys. Otherwise, I'm going to spend the entire evening going “Hello? My face is up here.”

I just remembered. I owe you a new shirt. We can take care of that now.

You don't like my shirt?

I like it. It's just where we're going… let me buy you a new shirt.


I know this much about fashion. When a dog's embarrassed to be seen with you, it's time to change clothes.

How's this shirt for color?

Okay. What restaurant are we going to?

Our reservations are at “Le Restaurant Des Ninjas”.

We're going to a restaurant run by ninjas?

FRENCH ninjas. There's a difference.

Years ago, there was a split among the french chefs. Those who felt the waiter was part of the dining experience, and those who felt they distracted from the meal.

French ninjas are from the second school. The food is the main attraction. The waiter's goal is to provide excellent service while being so unobtrusive as to be effectively invisible.

So these aren't the ones who throw those metal stars?

Baguettes. And only if you forget to tip.

I've got to ask. Why are you bringing a pretzel to a restaurant?

It's… an adaptation. Wolves determine social status by when you're allowed to eat.

If I eat something before going into a restaurant, then I've eaten FIRST. I can wait for a table and watch other people eat without it bothering me.

Ego food. So you don't feel like lowest ranking pack member.

Not quite. I still feel like an Alpha. But it suppresses the urge to chase all the other customers away from their meals until mine arrives.

Le Restaurant Des Ninjas

Dead end. Maybe we took a wrong turn?

Impressive. They hid the entire restaurant.

I'm told ninja accountants can hide even bigger things.

There's a note telling us how to get to our table.

Are we even going to see a waiter?

No jumping

Probably not. French ninjas are very stealthy and completely silent.

French… completely silent…

You don't suppose these guys might also be mimes?

Now, now. No need to panic. I'm sure they're only ninjas.
