*feels sad for Peanut*
to me he looks like “my little girl growing up”
Ya, I agree. I think Peanut’s more glad than sad for Grape by his expression.
But I suppose with the floating broken heart in the picture it changes the perspective a little.
If you love someone, let them go…..etc etc.. you know the corny cliché….
Peanut is putting Grape’s happiness ahead of his…. selfless, but painful.
I was hoping for it to turn another direction… poor, poor Peanut!
“Come here, let me hug you and we shall cry together!”
i hate dumb cliche’ if there suposed to be together and u know they will be u think he should let her go bah!
Man. I feel bad for Peanut.
Aww poor Peaut. iv’e been there. also, second comment! hooray.
or almost second anyway >.<
Second post. Not bad. (Just means I have to do something about my insomnia).
Oh Grape X3
Darnit, took too long.
Awe. We always root for the unlikely couples. Sadly that makes it unlikely to actually happen. Poor Peanut.
Max: Next stop, Bino in traction!
Bino: *groan* NOT AGAIN!
aaaww peanut is considerent and CUTE!!!
poor peanut. oh well its for the best. Relationships usually don’t work when you refer to the same people as your parents (mom and dad) lol
They’re pets tho, and unrelated at that (they share adoptive parents, aka “owners”)… so who knows what would happen. Could be fine and dandy for all we know, lol.
I hope Max buys him something super special for Christmas for this. Max seems like such a nice guy =)
On a side note, seems he too dressed for the occassion. <3
*is a little teary-eyed*
So sweet, so sad, I love it.
And I really like Max’s collar-collar.
Peanut is a gentleman’s gentleman. *shed a tear for Peanut*
notice how her eyes makeup is less heavy now. MUCH better!
Awww such a sweet scene. Kind of sad for Peanut but it’s nice that he is considerate of this matter.
he who’s in love would even break his own heart for the happiness of his true love
Very poetic Valerio <3 And in almost every case I've seen its true too, I know a guy right now… who is sitting by and being the best friend anyone would want for the girl he's in love with… while she leans to him for support with her boyfriend. He'd rather see her happy even if it means not with him.
Haha I love Max’s collar collar.
Knew it – Peanut cares so much for Grape, he’s willing to do anything her happy, even if it tears him up on the inside. Hence the “makeover” from earlier this week, and the last panel today. Kudos, Rick – this arcs not even close to finished, and it’s already spectacular.
Wow… that’s an odd glitch, post dumped out two words: should read “do anything TO MAKE her happy,” weird. *shrugs*
i so wish i was max
I just want to give Peanut a huge hug ;~;
My heart’s breaking for little Peanut… OH THE DRAMA
What a nice scene but I wonder how many “Aww~” comments we’ll get for poor heartbroken Peanut. Do you think he’ll try dating other dogs like…ummm…Daisy? Sorry, I couldn’t think of anyone else. She is the only female dog I know.
or peanut could try things out with sasha (i dont know if she has anybody, i forgot xP). but i love daisy. its kinda neat how much like her i am o.O. also, peanut has a heart of gold.
O_O O~O X( :”( =’(
aww… poor peanut…. geze that “i’m happy she’s happy, but i wish she’d be happy with me” feeling really.. really sucks… i’ll hug you peanut *hug*
Next person to get that reference gets a pipe-organ brush…
I was humming the song out loud as soon as I saw the title. xD
Grape NO D:
Nice! This comic is just full of Awwww! in every form.
A regular Cyrano de Bergerac, our poor, brave Peanut.
A Romantic in the truest form.
and so it begins…..
ouch poor guy
i wanna give em a big hug D:
Implied – or implode?
Awr…poor little peanut and his facade, I doubt he’ll be able to keep it up long though.
anyone else just want to give peanut the biggest hug ever?
i would but it’d be really wierd cause im a guy
nothing wrong with guys comforting guys
Especially when that guy is as adorable as Peanut. And also a pet.
yah, I’m a guy, and pretty much every time something sad or romantic happens, I just want to hug somebody.
I’d hug him long and then help him to a BIG candy bowl.
Peanut should ask help from Fido, really!
He looks like he needs one. And a whacking great ham sandwich and someone to play video games with for a couple hours. I guarantee he’d feel a bit better.
It just hurts to see his little heart broken like that.
I like it that a cat with my name gets to date Grape, but i would like it even better when Peanut would get to date her.
So many sacrifices made for others that go completely unnoticed…
I’m proud of Peanut though.
*giggle* bino in traction. i like this comic for many reasons ^^
GO MAX WOOO!
aww…Peanut is so sweet doing that for Grape, Max is really lucky! (XD)…i wonder if Peanut is happy or sad…=[
Probably a little bit of both.
im speechless (and sad)
Well, I have to say, from experience, I think this might actually help Peanut get over Grape. It always seems like, once that person finds someone else that they’re happy with, all residual feelings vanish. Maybe it’s just for ex’s though, I dunno.
Flirts that don’t work N.645 – I guess you weren’t kidding about the girl part!
AWWWWW thats so sweet. poor Penut he was lin love with grape and now who knows
So he still wasn’t sure she was a female?
Awww! So sweet ^^
He has a popped collar on!
Man… Max seems pretty superficial and annoying. That relationship can’t go on! (At least i hope it doesn’t xd)
I doubt it will, personally. The fact that Peanut is willing to sacrifice his own happiness for Grape’s seems indication that this will go in another direction. If she comes to understand that, maybe we’ll see what we hope to see in the end. Bless Peanut for his selflessness, he deserves hugs, love and tons of treats for his good heart.
Peanut needs some love! Grape, go back and hug on him super hard!!!
Selflessness is a definite canine trait. But when you try to mix it with human emotions, as these pets have… actually, I’m not sure how that works, but they’re just as much people as the humans in this comic are. More so, sometimes. Balancing that selfless love with his own love for Grape must be really hard on Peanut. I can’t help but feel for him.
Also, I demand good Karma for Peanut for handling this so well.
Great character development and great writing, Rick. You never cease to amaze me.
I agree with Bronzie. Peanut MUST have something good happen to him, and it must happen to him soon. He is far to sad and adorable to suffer any longer.
Some writers pride themselves on the suffering of their characters. =p
We ALL demand good karma for peanut, Rick!
Yes! We all demand good caramel for Peanut.
Mmmm. Caramel and Peanuts.
FAIL! *Stamps a FAIL! stamp on Musimba’s forehead in tatoo ink.*
shakes head slowly. let him have his joke.
He’s gonna go cry in a dark corner somewhere and spite his own existence. All done behind the scenes so as not to scare the children.
I hope you don’t mind me saying, but you are now my most favorite person, Bronze.
Your name is “the bronze Gryphon.” – my Favorite animal.
You actually spell it “Gryphon”
And you have an avatar of it, drawn by you, I imagine.
Aww poor Peanut…
Anyone else get the impression that max might be compensating for something with that huge bell?
Why must you people always indclude incepite remarks of lewd natures?
Could be to take attention away from his right ear possibly.
True there. Once you see that bell, it’s almost impossible to look at him eye to eye.
i was the one who ate it
bad taco. bad.
ne no bad
Both are correct.
We are furries by human nature.
My inner animal spirit is a homo sapien.
hehe, very telling of peanut to be happy by making others happy.
Peanut isn’t happy.
thats a regular old tear jerker
Oh… I hope Grape has some good common sense: Max has a shifty look about him.
I was thinking that too. Five seconds into the date and he’s already going on with the “Rowrs” and sly smiles? Bad form. Though, he probably really is a very nice guy; just very bold with his flirting.
Well of course he´s shady. He has a bitten off ear, probably from the rough nights on the Streets, yo.
Gangstah style XD
Well, im interested into seeing this go on, and seeing Peanut develop a forth emotion other then happy, sad and brain failure…jealousy.
That huge bell is just his Bling Bling…
sorry couldn´t resist.
Bling Bling that goes Ding-a-ling
that was worse.
Yes. It was, quite possibly, the worst. You should feel shamed.
Yes you could have resisted, but you just chose not to. Bad Chris. No more breathing privleges for you.
Poor Peanut, love is hard and its harder to love someone enough to let them go
and its usually those beautiful hearts that get hurt in the end
Bino in traction…..ahahahahaha
Total awesome line!
Sad Peanut, i tripple the good Karma!
If you listen REALLY closely when you read; you can hear Peanut’s heart break.
it was actually quite loud….
Ever hear the San Andreas Fault shift? This was like that, only sadder, and a bigger tragedy. <=(
It’s like another drop in his tear filled lake of sorrow…
I Quadruple Peanut’s Karma
I love it that Max has a collar on his collar…looks like he decided to dress up a bit too.
Whoa, I did not notice that
poor Peanut D:
…Really it’s all been said for me. Peanut WILL have a good thing happen.
He deserves a million dollars to fall from the sky into his hands.
omg poor Peanut
Grape is quite lovely with her eyelashes. :3
Max looks so cute with that collar around his collar. Creative idea X3
I called it when I said that everyone would notice it and say that it really does do something!
The last panel just broke my heart. Peanut, I feel for ya bro!
As stated above, and it’s worth repeating, great character development!
Would love to see it fall into his lap, litterally, maybe a new character (feline possibly) out of a tree or off a roof.
Yea, some writers get you coming and going.
Lubs the entire series, Rick.
I second the motion, that could be the funniest storyline yet, and appease everyone’s desires to see Grape and Peanut get together.
“THAT’S NOT HOW KARMA IS SUPPOSED TO WORK!”
*Is sobbing in a corner, feeling Peanut’s feelings T.T*
i started reading this webcomic this morning, and suddenly it was 4 hours later and i had’nt eaten yet.
you, sir, posses a gift!
And yes he does. Of this, we are quite aware!
XD wow 4 hrs. now that a new record for reading this comic I do belive
Impressive, yes. It seems attainable with quick reading and a reliable connection. Cheers, Othorlimmis, but consider rereading. You might find a great many things you missed! For example: Commentary. You can observe the ebb and flow of reception, and see how, in those rare, wonderful strips, the fans really can force the author’s hand. Beautiful.
Glory be to the Griffin, of course. We love you, Rick.
I don’t know. I spent 3 syad straight reading this comic. I don’t even rmbemeer sleeping…
that breaks MY record, I started reading this comic a week ago.
been reading it since december of 08… only now, i have started commenting tho =P
i started reading these comics on the 14th and they seem real intresting they certantly caught my attentoin good job rick
one-hundred-and-second comment WOO
So Max finally gets his date. Then, he probably wasn’t worried in the least
What a sharp dresser, too! Seems he put a collar– …around his collar? Surprisingly simple!
I like it, Rick!
You’ve been counting?
What? Why? Are you saying that putting in the _th comment means absolutely NOTHING!?
How dare you insult my my perfectly appropriate and well-placed enthusiasm!!
– And on the off chance that you were actually curious: No. When I looked, the current comment count was 101. Mine would have made lucky #102.
I like this guy. He’s crazy. You’re ok.
hey calm down, I only just realized there is a counter on the side of the box! (which proves how dumd I am -yet again)
*runs away, ears down tail tucked under.
I tell this to allot of people, because it’s true. You’re not dumb (Even though you spelled it wrong). You’re just oblivious to certain things.
on a serious note,
no more insults. -done.
awwwww poor peanut
Throws a chihuahua at Peanut, because they are tiny, cute and act like cats (at least mine do) in a socially acceptable dog form!
Why would you throw a dog at Peanut? Throw it TO him.
It’s a chihuahua. Throw it, pass it, you’ll still get: “Oh, fancy that. I’ve acquired a tiny form of life.”
Come to think of it– a Housepets! chihuahua should be no taller than… the ferrets Milton! Genius!
Thank you ^_^ I think it comes from owning several. And no I would throw her at him. Because then he could catch her and be her knight in shining armor.
Poor Peanut T-T
*sniff* “My little girl is growing up, and going off with other cats… and not me… I need a hug… and some not-chocolate.”
Not-chocolate is the best kind of chocolate
It’s the best kind because it’s not!
I don’t see it.
Eh…Hot chocolate, Not chocolate.
Just read the entire comic for the first time, start to finish, over the course of 2 days so I’m all caught up. Excellent comic, characters, and storyline. I hope it continues to go in the right direction, especially between Grape and Peanut.
are u kidding me i read these in an 1 hour and 45 mintues
on behalf of all those voices to lazy to post a comment STOP HURTING PEANUT
I MAX PEANUT’S GOOD KARMA! Pun not intended.
Long time reader, first time commenter.
I know how Peanut feels. There’s this girl, you like her a lot, but she’s not interested in you, but you still care for her nonetheless. So you’re willing to break your own heart into a thousand pieces so that she can be happy.
Bittersweet. Nicely done.
*General Warning: This is just a thought/opinion*
Well from past accords in reading (and writing), you can easily see something obviously good (and or goofy) is on the horizon as most high traffic based comics are. But like life and near life-like accounts reveal, self sacrifice has always been an unspoken level of up most strength and hope. An odd, yet over powering life changing lesson. He will be rewarded but thats something we cannot fore see. Peanut has grown up and I hope he will become more stronger with each prevailing day.
Great work as always, you started off great and going on just as strong. Thank you!
OMG! I just noticed that peanut’s hand over his bone makes a little heart over his chest. Nice touch!
In the end, I don’t think we need to worry.
You can’t separate Peanut Butter and Grape Jelly- makes for too awesome a sammich. ^_^
u know this is the longest comment box out of all of them and i agree i kinda feel bad for peanut but he is a dog
