If you recall, Lyn informed Jack that their family pet ran off. This is the circumstances of said running off.
I’ve done one panel strips for most of the days after Thanksgiving if I recall correctly and they’ve all been something quick about leftovers or black Friday… but since we’re still on Halloween night for the main story doing a zinger for the Blaine arc worked in my mind.
So we were able to get a little more insight into what happened after Blaine was brought back and that Glen isn’t all powerful. He got outsmarted by a poodle.
