Today marks the first new Queen's Land comic in a while, thanks to my previous host going down. If you're an old reader coming back, welcome and sorry for the brief hiatus before the site went down completely. I'm glad you stuck with me anyway. If you're a new reader welcome I hope you like the strip.
If you haven't noticed, the site has been updated slightly with the move. I've got vote and donate buttons along with a banner. The ads are to try to get some money so I can pay for things like a domain name and hosting (if Smack Jeeves ever goes down or I need/want a new host), and the donate and vote buttong are really only there, just in case some crazy person wants to vote for the comic, or some even crazier person wants to give me money. I certainly don't expect either to get used.
Some new features are:
* user comments (obviously) where you can talk about the comic itself or with each other.
* ability to e-mail the comic to someone.
* a search button where you can search the text of the actual webcomic.
So hope everyone likes the comic and stays around. As always you're more then welcome to send feedback to me at John@TheLysts.com
I've always liked 'are you a blacksmith, cause I'm getting hard for you'
If it's someone's pet, isn't it technically not a dingo?
Actually I'm pretty sure they're still called dingoes whether it's wild or domesticated. However they are facing possible extinction, not due to predators or famine, but because they keep mating with dogs, which hadn't happened before the European settlers came.
The dingo is the only native Australian animal to be domesticated. However saying it's a native Australian animal is a bit dishonest. Although it's thought of as an Australian animal, it originated somewhere else and is believed to have been brought by people trading with the Aboriginals around 4000 B.C. It was able to populate the continent very quickly with the aid of the Aboriginals, with many tribes accepting the animal as companions. It's also thought to have killed off the Tasmanian Tiger. In fact, it was only until the European Settlers brought their sheep (who the dingoes found tasty) arrived that the dingoes became predominantly wild creatures in Australia.
At least, that's as far as I know. It's quite likely I'm wrong ;)
