"Dear Wendy, my girlfriend dumped me, again. It is the second time I've been dumped twice by two different women. I'd like to set a new personal-best and get dumped three times, but to do that I need to convince her to take me back again. How do you recommend I go about it? - Sincerely, Karaoke Slim"

Carol, if you keep holding your phone with your fingers on the screen, you may accidentally hang up on someone. You need to lean your phone on three fingers like Wil-<click>-bur...
Carol's to-do list:
  • Block caller 
  • Find new dog park 
  • Find new dog beach 
  • Find new pet store

Wilbur's to-do list: 

  • Get new chick magnet

Aw, yes, Dawn's John Waters phase. And Wilbur's prize from the county fair pie eating contest.

I did this to a woman once, and she ended up marrying me. I'm just saying, you can recover.

Wilbur is really struggling without his chick magnet. It was Carol who suggested not bringing the dogs to dinner. Perhaps she knew it was her kryptonite, and the only way she could break free of Wilbur's diabolical scheme was to separate him from his frenchie. Hopefully today her "Um" will be more effective.

Most people use the phrase "My Ex" with bitterness and scorn. Wilbur uses it as if he's speaking about his dearly departed grandma, who never slowed down, even when she got really old and senile.

I'm sure Carol Rebound would much prefer to listen to you sing along than to hear you blabber on about your "Ex."

I'm not very familiar with Southern California idioms, but here in Philly, we just say, "Yo, it's a karaoke joint."

Every time I see these two play, I can't help but think of lions on a British crest being carried into war against the ancestors of Professor Ian Cameron.
And now, as Estelle (the only woman Wilbur hasn't stalked after a break up) prepares to send Libby the Cat on some diabolical plot for revenge, I can't help feeling a sense of dread. Libby doesn't like dogs. And they don't like her. But to be confronted with the fury of lions!

Wilbur gets in trouble when he salsas, just like those Frenchies if a wave crashes over them! I'm watching them and worried about burning paws on hot sand, drinking too much salt water, sun burned noses and even drowning. I care more about the dogs than the puppy love growing on the shore.

We all understand that Carol is just being cordial and letting a human being know that she is more interested in him than in his dog. But Wilbur doesn't understand that. Someone needs to warn Carol that Wilbur thinks she's hitting on him, and he is a deluded idiot who will now stalk her every day of her life, until the next chick is magnitized by Pierre the Dog. Words matter, Carol. Be careful how you choose them.

Mrs. Wanders and I just returned from a lovely week at the Finger Lakes in Upstate New York, but now I am struggling to catch up and I have a few questions. First and foremost, what is a chew toy for?

Today's strip is the perfect opportunity for me to say, "I'm going on vacation!" I know I'm going to miss a lot of exciting adventure and animal hijinks this next week, but I'll be having fun of another sort. Whoosh!

Oh, I think "Pee-air" was fortuitous enough.

New song on the jukebox: "I Made a Mistake" by the Impressions.

Well, you've certainly answered all of our screening questions. Congratulations, enjoy your dog. And congratulations to you, Pierre... and good luck!

"I am willing to say anything, and hand you this expensive, fragile, living animal to take home, right now, no questions asked, just to get you out of here."

Wilbur must secrete some sort of strange pheromone that warns women he's single. I mean this woman wouldn't just assume someone is single, would she? She's more professional than that, isn't she? And then her response to his unthreatening moment of hope, assuming he is somehow hitting on her? I don't think I like her very much. No wonder she gets along with dogs so well.

What's going on!?

8:05 AM Eastern: I have been unable to access the Comics Kingdom site for two days. This is a tragedy. How will I ever know what is going on?? You miss two days of Mary Worth and you will never catch up!

3:07 PM Eastern: Well, I've hacked into the SeattlePI.com site - what does PI stand for? And here is the money panel for you:

I weep for women and dogs everywhere.

"Maybe having a dog will bring out the caring side a ME buried under all this muscle and crooner's good looks."

Mary Worth 3730

Yes, Wilbur! Every dog owner is happy all the time. And they always find love. You should run down to the pet store right now and pick out a dog! They're lots of fun, and oh so easy!

(Please note: This is a joke. In no way do I condone casual and irresponsible dog ownership. I know some of you will find today's strip and my response triggering, so I just want to make that clear. Capisce?)

Very inspiring! Well, not so inspiring when you realize that the absolute only thing Saul and Eve have in common is that they like to dress their dogs with matching neckware.

Dawn, having learned while dating Hugo that long-distance relationships are doomed, has moved to Tucson while Jared works his physicians assistant job in Santa Royale. I'm sure it's going fine. 600 miles isn't nearly as far away as France. What could possibly go wrong?

First of all I missed this gem yesterday:
Wilbur tried to meet girls at the dog beach. They were all dogs. Ha ha ha ha ha.
Sound the trumpets! Mary's gonna Meddle! A variety of muffins sounds very promising.

Good call, Saul. You do not want to be responsible for Wilbur's next addiction.

Here's another reason why Wilbur sucks. Two-faced. Lips together, teeth apart. Hates everyone and cats.
At least he treats Saul politely despite his inner disgust. The truth is, just before this encounter, Saul was thinking, "Here comes that buffoon, Fatty Weston. That bald pile of horsefeathers is going to rain on my parade. Better keep Greta clear; I hear he hates animals now."

If only it was that complicated. She broke up with you because you're an imbecile.
Something tells me we've been here before....
Same walk, same step, totally different attitude.

Wilbur used to be sympathetic. Then he was pathetic. Now he's psychopath-etic.

Mary Worth 3719

Wilbur, don't make this more awkward than it needs to be. She chose her cat over a dog. She's choosing a six-day migraine over you.

Estelle finally comes to her senses. The only reason this ever worked is because after being catfished by Arthur Zerro, she dropped her standards so low that even Wilbur could step over the bar. I mean, drunken noodles, anyone? But given enough time (two years!), Estelle has come to realize she's better off with just her cat.

I hope Wilbur gives Estelle an ultimatum: It's Libby or me. I was wondering how these two were going to break up because clearly Estelle is willing to put up with a lot as long as Wilbur keeps feeding her.

I hope that for the piggies' sake, Libby's revenge includes a bucket of pig blood poured down from the ceiling.

So this story is essentially going to be the same as the Drew/Ashlee plot with Estelle as Ashlee and Libby as Shauna. And I'm okay with that.
