oh no…. OH NO………. OHHH NOOOOOOOOO!!!! NOT THE VEEETTT!!!
those last two faces are perfect, and very funny joke too, well done.
Ah… the whole “Lie to your pet to get them to go to the vet” trick… I do it to my cat when we have to go to the vet >.>… =P
ANYWAY! Again, I must (as someone will eventually) point out that you’re faces are, in fact, AMAZING (especially in panel 1 and 4), and I also think it’s funny that they sit in booster seats… But, then again, cages and carriers wouldn’t have really worked, would they have .
OH. MAI. GAWD.
And so it begins…
How tall are these guys anyway???
But seriously, my dog went to the aminA cinilC last week and he hasn’t stopped shivering since then…
That’s some traumatizing stuff…
thats all you have to say
the shots and checking their temprature those are the worst parts of vet trips
dun dun DUUUUUUUUUN! …..:3
ok Jack Valenti, get back to the american rating system
Ha! I’m lucky enough to never have encountered this kind of situation! My dad has always been straightforward to me, almost to the point where it’s halarious somehow.
Your dad told you he was taking you to the vet?
No, but at one point he told me I was having surgery….on his birthday, no less.
Happy Birthday dad?
Freak out mode in T-Minus 2 days. Hehe, can’t wait to see how they react.
Of course, the classic “shrinking pupils” give out a good probability of something zany.
How cute, Car seats
I agree the car seats are adorable and they look like a puppy and kitty with how excited they were.
Nice touch with the car seats – suppose it’s easier than kennels, tho. Funny expressions in the last panel. Wish it was as easy to fool my pets – I swear they must read the calendar at night when we’re asleep, they start to hide from us as much as a week in advance from their vet visits, lol!
(Heaven help their owners if Peanut and Grape start keeping tabs on the calendar – they’ll know well in advance when to hide! Oh well… XD)
But if the last strip had me wondering, this one confirmed it – Grape and Peanut’s eyes are getting smaller (the colored part, that is – look at the banner vrs this strip, it stands out). It’s intentional in the final panel of course, but the first three, I’m guessing it’s just the results of style-evolution – just put a recent strip from the last month up next to the web-page banner, and one of the first strips on the site. The older strips eyes look a lot closer to the banner than the new ones do.
Doubt anyone would have noticed this without the banner in fact – taking the time to compare the early and recent strips showed a huge amount of character evolution. It just creeps up on ya. Nothing wrong with it tho: Peanut and Grape are always cute!
also their necks are much thinner. artistic drift is so fun to look at from time to time.
First and last cells are too awesome, bang up job Rick.
I pity the fools…
Hah, I wish lying to my cats worked like that. One glance at a carrier and they’re gone. Even if we’re just going to visit family. They hate car rides.
Awww, noooooooo!! Poor Peanut and Grape XD.
My first thought after panel 4: “Oh God…”
All together now!
“Candlejack… Oh shi-!”
Quick! get out of the booster seats and jump for it >:o
Aww, their character designs are getting cuter!
And poor things.
NO NOT THE ANIMAL CLINIC!!!!
LOL poor guys ^^
lol this is hilarious “i thought we were going to the pool” “….i thought we we’re going to the mal-” Peanut and Grape’s faces = O.O they look at each other then Grape finally says “RRRUUUNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Peanut screams “HURRY OPEN THE WINDOWS B4 MOM AND DAD PUT THE CHILDREN LOC-…WUT!? THEY ALREADY DID! WE’RE TRAPPED!” Dad opens door then Grape caterwauls “QUICK! MAKE A RUN FOR IT! HURRY! SAVE URS-…NO FORGET U! ME 1ST IM RUNNING FOR A TREE!” lol
Gets ‘em every time. XD
Nice work. :3 Those expressions are priceless, too.
I’m scared. There is only one reason I can think of for why they were lied to like that: Bob Barker had a nice long talk with “Dad”, and now P&J are off to have their plumbing removed. X_x¡
“Run, you two! Run for your very souls!”
Heh, interesting idea, but highly unlikely in this particular strip. More likely it’ll be the ole’ “I DON’T WANA GET A SHOT!” joke – can’t see the former flying very well.
Very nice strip. The joke itself is naturally not particularly fancy, but their expressions in the last panel are golden. The transparent caption on the car window is also done very nicely.
Ah…That old trick to get them in the car….Muhahahaha
Nice car seats…
<3 Grapes face in the first panel
Well, that sucks…I guess there won’t be any extended family characters in the future.
This has suddenly become a survival horror omic to my puppy.
You know, I don’t have to lie to get my dog to go to the vet. I loves going places so much all I have to do is grab his leash and we’re off! Of course, he probably has this understanding that he’s never going to go to the vet to have … that done, so he has no basis for even an irrational fear.
Oh Dear God…not the VET! Noooooo!
Panels one and four are my faves in this one. The expressions are win.
i didn’t realize how insane cats go at the vet until every vet i take my kitten to reacted with sheer awe at her non-chalant attitude.
dogs on the other hand…i’m used to having an 80lb boxer climb into my lap in trembling terror.
Those poor fools…
Haha, poor guys.
Omigosh. I love their little car seats. xD Poor little pets, going to see the doctor….
Uh, poor …
This is a nightmare!
OMG! We totally have to do that for out dog!
it hits the fan
Remember parents, booster seats for your children until 4′9″ (or some number like that).
xD Ahaha, what all pets hate.
Kids’ style |3
I used to have a cat where if you said “bath” in Spanish, it would run away for dear life.
This is a great comic. The only thing off-putting I see is that There’s nothing in the background. It’s just a bland grey.
Wow, heh. My fursona could relate, if he existed. XD
It seems that Rick has stumbled upon the secret to cuteness.
Again, another comic that just proves that I’ve GOT to stop reading Housepets at work! their faces in the last panel had me laughing soo hard everyone else thought i was nuts (again)
Let’s hope it’s just for shots or a checkup, nothing more. O_O
It’s totally adorable, I’m glad the idea came out so well. *giggles*
Not to derail the current strip but…
Do the Housepets take thermometers like real pets? O_o
yep but with then is in their behind!
I like the carseats and their faces on the last panel.
ONLY SUPERSPOT CAN SAVE THEM NOW!!
ps:if he don´t appear then RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!
AAGH I STARTED READING THIS FROM PAGE ONE AND THE NEXT BUTTON STOPPED WORKING D:
… this is one on the saddest-yet-funniest comics that I’ve ever seen… I LOVE IT!
ROFL! I read it a second time, and its still funny. XD
ouch…their owners can’t even lie to them good…
OMG that might suck for them or not…………
First off, I wonder how often they get to go where they think they’re going, (By their reactons, I would think as often as they go to a theme park.)
Second, Peanut: 0 . 0, Grape: O . O
It’s a Trap! :0
Come to think of it, even Housepets! animals must have trouble keeping their balance in a vehicle. Nonetheless, the car seats are winners, for sure!
Also, Grape isn’t going to let the allowance thing go, is she? Its almost grounds for its own arc…
