    I must be dim, ‘cause I don’t think I get this one either. Did the dog have a wee at the snow catman? Is it a live cat covered in snow? What’s the significance of snowless bit of road surface, or the Bolshevik and the levitating dog? Arlo looks outraged, rather than shocked, so my first assumption of a road accident is probably false.

    Dammit, this is approaching Cow Tools territory levels of incomprehensibility for me.

    A “wee” on the snowcat would cause significant, immediate melting.

    Arlo is shielding the cat from seeing the death of the snowman cat as it melts. The patch of road is to show that the snow is melting.

    Poor snow cat, I’d have thought that the dog was adding insult to injury.

    Apparently some of the more naive readers have never heard of the adage that dog piss is poison. That applies to snow cats as well as to lawns.

    I thought the road and sidewalk were just to show the proximity of the snowcat to insulting passers-by. Didn’t realize anything about poison and melting.

    Zipper the wonder dog, my chocolate Labrador, wants to leave his calling card on every tree and fire hydrant we walk pass.

    According to today’s Red and Rover it’s a sign the dog really liked it.

    I would go with the dog marking his territory on the snow cat..

    I love Arlo & Janis, but it seems like lately, I don’t understand the strip.

    This strip, to me, has had enigmatic episodes for years. Aren’t we lucky to have other commenters there to explain them to us? I did get this one, but didn’t take it the detail about melting snow.
