Roscoe’s fleas are bothering him in the nextto last panel.
If this were animated with voice over, Opal would probably have selective hearing when it came to “sewer.”
Earl, go get some Advantage or Frontline for Roscoe. Leave Opal in peace.

abbybookcase: There are three ways in which languages get new words: French, German, or English.French: Turn it over to Academie Francaise and in a decade or so, they will have decided if it is a word; until then, it cannot be used in a legal document.German: Describe it in as few words as possible, knock out the spaces and cram the whole thing together. You have a word, but it is absurdly long.English: Look around and see who has a word for that; steal it and claim it is English, but keep the original Latin alphabet spelling. As a result, it will be horribly mispronounced.
