The future owner of Geraldine, if Geraldine doesn't want to kill her first :D

Aww this is the moment I've been waiting for for months, this put a big ol' smile on my face :) Curious to see what her name is gonna be, hope it's not something really goofy or off-the-cuff! (In before she gets named Geraldine after the car XD)

Name is revealed next week :)

Yep. In a few years she might be wrecking that car.

I was thinking there was going to be a twist where the kid was actually going to be a boy... XD

Welcome to fatherhood, Russ.

An anticlimactic ending-but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Love the joke at the end though.
FreyFox 17th Jan 2020, 2:01 AM edit delete reply
Were you expecting something else? :P
Long Tom 17th Jan 2020, 2:11 AM edit delete reply
For something to go terribly wrong with the childbirth, based on the drama in the previous strip.

Sorry to disappoint :P

January 17th will no longer be a normal day in the Harvey house, welcome to the world little squerret!

Well Linda did go into labour before xmas so the kid would have been born last month I suppose XD. But its the way comic strip releases work lol.
WaxBadger 17th Jan 2020, 2:18 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, but you weren't making any mention of Ecksmas or had any Ecksmas decorations up, and most of California stays green all year, so it's passable.

I mean Garfield always observes his birthday on June 19th, and was technically already born when the strip debuted so I'm sure it's more than okay for Little Miss Squerret to have her birthday on the 17th of January (or 16th accounting for the eight hour difference between LA and Dundee)

It would have to have been December because conception was in February.
WaxBadger 17th Jan 2020, 3:52 PM edit delete reply
Oh, well in that case, maybe she was born in November, that's nine months there, I don't know.
FreyFox 18th Jan 2020, 1:09 AM edit delete reply
I guess I fell behind as I added more strips to previous chapters lol.
LapisHusky 18th Jan 2020, 6:32 AM edit delete reply
So the question is, when IS the exact dob?
FreyFox 18th Jan 2020, 10:44 AM edit delete reply
I'm going with December 7th 2019, because Linda went into labour the same day Glenn discovered Jeanette's centerfold lol. And it was the following morning she had the baby.
GoodKaptainKook 19th Jan 2020, 2:40 AM edit delete reply
A Pearl Harbor Day baby?

Oh right... Linda's mother (Shirley) was about to 'compel the demons' from Jeannette... -_-

I question why Shirley is still a character in the comic nowadays

At least let him play with the keys Russ. Obviously not drive at the moment XD

Her :p

Looks like she has her mother's hands. I bet she'll be revealed alongside her name.

I hope to see what she looks like soon...😄

Having held my newborn daughter in my arms, the feeling is nearly indescribable.

But I tried to explain in when I did the chapter on the birth of Corona. "I Saw God Today"

Congrats on your new adventure Russell: 3 am feeling; sleep deprivation; estrogen mood swings..., no touchy-feely of da love pillows for some time.

WaxBadger claimed that Linda apparently gave birth to a squirrel. I have not seen any evidence of that since the nurse bundled the newborn in a blanket off-panel before handing her over to Russell. For all we know, she could either be a ferret, an English squirrel, or combination of both a la Kevin and Kell. I guess we'll find out about that next week. Maybe Russell could contact Kevin Dewclaw, and see what he can tell him about having a blended family, especially a daughter who has the characteristics of him and his lupine wife Kell.

He said squerret, not squirrel :P

Damn, my heart melted at the last two panels.

Well, Linda will finally get some rest while Russell will get to know his new daughter. I hope this situation doesn't end up like one of those "drive-in pregnancies" , where the mother gives birth, and if the doctors assume there are no complications, the mother and daughter the mother and baby are discharged within 24 hours. The problem with that is there could be something wrong with the baby and/or mother, and the mother will end up having to go back to the hospital to get herself and/or her baby checked out. I would think that most hospitals would try to keep the mother and baby for about three to four days to make sure nothing has gone wrong, but the insurance companies usually pressure them to get mother and baby out of the hospital as soon as possible. I would prefer not throw cold water on this blessrd event, but…

I guess Russell and Linda will decide on a name by end of this week. I do wonder, at the risk of sounding macabre, what the girl will look like. Maybe she will be a ferret, an English squirrel, or possibly a mixture of the two like in Kevin and Kell. Kevin and Kell Dewclaw have a bunny who turned out to be a meat - leaning I'm the Boer.

Why do you seem to expect more realism in this webcomic? Realism went out the window as soon as the animals in it started walking and talking.
KSArmstrong 21st Jan 2020, 6:33 AM edit delete reply
... an omnivore heavily favoring meat... much to the... contempt of her grandmother Dorothy Kindle.
