I am having issues with uploading at the moment and can’t contact my server guy, so the comic is in lower res for the moment
question answered in two scenes haha
poor peanut and grape D:
Hahaha! That’s why grape that’s why! ROFL!
lol i love the faceses in the third panle
Not even words, but four letters….
R… O… F… L! XD
About time some kids showed up in this strip too, I might add, lol. =P
I second that. I’ve always thought this strip needed more kids. After all, isn’t it the kids who always say “But I want a dog! Why can’t we have a dog?” and “Can we keep him?”?
Nah, I still do that whenever I see any adorable furry creature.
I think Peanut is getting the worse from his expression.
Remember, though, that Grape’s face is behind her hand. On the other hand (no pun intened) Grape has probably had more experience with these encounters back when she was named Princess Periwinkle
Ah, the pet-glomp, the bane of cuteness
Love Peanut’s expression in the last panel.
Apparently pets don’t like it when you spontaneously hug them every second of the day. Who knew?
I wonder if pets actually enjoy being pet in this world? Signs point to no…
actually, in the dognapping part, peanut loved being hugged by her owner
not to mention that he asked for a hug while seeing Grape in their mom’s arms. Mebbe it’s strangers that are regarded with ‘prudence’
Poor Grape and Peanut. Animals HATE being glomped.
My cat doesn’t seem to mind. In fact, most of them start purring when I glomp them. They is huggable.
Same goes for my cat. She’s fluffy.
My cat tends to let me for up to two seconds, then starts acting like I’m asphyxiating him
Glad to see someone else likes Oomph!. (I know, not related to comic) I wonder who the barn cats are.
Rofl, poor Peanut & Grape!!!
Elmyra’s in training, all of them… BAD TOUCH, BAD TOUCH
I’m gonna hug you and kiss you and love you forever (and never use you up)
Oh my, a human face! Shield your eyes!
GAH! IT BURNS! The pain.
i just realized that peanut says “hi santa” in the first frame.
… You’re kinda slow.
My dog has developed a healthy “Don’t touch me” attitude towards anything smaller than me. Luckily he doesn’t bite or growl, he just walks away VERY fast.
So yeah, I can sympathize with Rufus and the Barn Cats (sounds like a 60’s band name!)
one of my dogs ADORES being cuddled and petted, strangers included. The other two are quite shy towards other people.
PS – Hey Peanut, weren’t you the hug-type doggie?
then again… being hugged does not equal being strangled haha
“We need an adult! We need an adult!”
Peanut’s face is so cute in the last panel!
You think a look of abject terror is cute?
Incredibly. What could be cuter than fear?
I don’t know, maybe them asleep curled up in a little ball? Or maybe them actually trying to look cute.
… I want to join in the group hug. Mainly to save them, but it’s still a hug… kinda.
Awww…..I hate kids = -=!
… T_T you hate me?
nobody has commented on how cute it is how Peanut apparently lumps in anybody with a beard like Santas as Santa?
Doesn’t even have to be white.
Santa beard = Santa.
I can understand Peanut’s reasoning, too. When I was young (about 4), I equated men older than my dad with “grampa”. Both a department store Santa and Ronald Reagan got called “grampa”.
If I may… ahem…
Oh hardy har har.
I must concur. But I think my humor is a little more felt then his. Is that sarcasm?
Oh no! Peanut and Grape are being overwelmed :<
Oh and lol first panel
Ask and Ye Shall Receive…
Don’t Ask and Ye Shall Receive Anyways…
I just noticed how MASSIVE Peanut’s hands look in the last panel…
They are huge. Take a look at the first panel; Peanut’s hands are about the same size as Uncle Ruben’s!
aaaahhhhh! bad touch! hahaha
me am huggy/hug-huggy you/me am huggy/and you know what to do…
I’d be all over hugging those animals <<;
Ohohoho… Why do I have this feeling Peanut & Grape are in for a wild time?
Grape: rule one of visiting a farm. Don’t ask questions and you won’t be sorry you asked
Questions like “Where’s the bathroom!?” should be avoided then?
On a farm…? Yes.
Depends on how old the farm is and on gender. I happen to live on one.
Had grandparents who lived on a farm here – and yes, that kind of question is in the top ten “DO NOT ASK” list, lol.
I wish I could switch places with the kids…
get yoself in line, man! *I* saw ‘em first!
No. The creator of this comic saw them first. He saw them in his mind (and possibly IRL) before you saw them. And also, I saw this at about the same time it came up. I just didn’t comment then cause I didn’t know I could…
To everyone who keeps mentioning why Peanut and Grape are freaking out when they supposedly liked being hugged or the like, ever consider the fact that the Kids are being a bit overzealous and are squeezing too hard? Could prolly explain why Peanut has an expression as if one of his ribs is being crushed.
Or it could stem from overstimulation. Animals don’t like that. It’s when they turn around and bite you that you know that you’re giving them maybe a little too much attention.
lol SANTA?? hahahahahaaa
Grape looks like she’s looking at the reader in the first panel.
No Grape! Keep the fourth wall!
You noticed it too? I didn’t mention cause I didn’t want to attract attention to it. Now that you have though >.>
hehehe, yus. forth walls are needed.
I can just imagine him saying “accommodations’ in a country accent like “uh-cawm-uh-day-shuns”.
Seriously, I just heard that in my head. Yea, I’m from the South, Lol
So am I and I heard it spoken like normal english. We’re not all hicks down here.
I can see the next panal already.
Peanut looking down an shamed..
an the parents saying, bad dog, no nipping!
For some reason, I forsaw the next comic as being Spot the Superdog. Really, I hope I’m wrong.
why? Spot the superdog comics are a bit funny.
Cause I’d like to continue on the story arc.
And that´s pretty much the reason why my cat dislikes kids. :/
kids are eeeeevillll!
Well not all kids, just most of them.
You know those signs that say “keep away from children”? Yeah, they don’t mean keep the item away from the children, they mean “STAY AWAY FROM CHILDREN”. All of them. Its completely true.
I’m not evil…entirely… I’m all heart. Yes I stole that from earlier in the strip. So sue me.
unevil kids are only of the kind that really cares for pets and play no mischief on ‘em
Like me. I love my pets, why would I hurt them?
Okay, we know where are pet mice, pet cats, and pet dogs…
But are there Pet Horses? >.> A most interesting question.
Check Rick’s DeviantArt page… that’ll probably answer your question, lol.
No, there isn’t a Housepets! image up there that confirms/denies this. Just going off a theory that, if he can draw them, and wants to add ‘em to Housepets!, he will. And I think Rick’s gallery more than proves he can draw ‘em. ; )
LOL kids XD
A punch line all it’s own.
1. Open mouth
2. Insert footpaw
“OH GOD! CHILDREN! Their hands are eeeverrrywheeee-he-he-heeeerrre! T_T”
I want to be one of this childrens d^^
*chuckles* kids have an affinity for pets…i still remember tying to get my cousins not to chase the cats around the house for hours.
here it seems that its the same thing, only that Peanut is horrified to have so much attention and Grape trying to steel herself against the mob *snerk*
