    that’s cute!

    • psychoJoker36

      Yes. Yes it is

      • kingisawsome

        I couldn’t agree more

    • warhero1000

      I agree completely.

    • HonorèDerazey

      I as well accede to this.

      • Frank

        You almost avoided using the patented pronoun
        (or was it intentional?)

        • HonorèDerazey

          I REALLY (and I mean REALLY) suck at English. So I’m going to ask exactly what is a ‘patented pronoun’?

          • psychoJoker36

            I believe he was refering to “sihT”
            Hold that up to a mirror, it’ll make more sense

          • HonorèDerazey

            I still don’t understand.

          • psychoJoker36

            This. He was refering to This, I believe. That pronoun. The most diabolical pronoun ever created, that’s been said somewhere OVER 9000!!!!!!! times

          • Frank

            Pronoun: a word used to refer to another word (his, her, it, this, that)
            Patented: when someone reserves themselves the right to use something they invented for a specific purpose

            The Patented Pronoun: “This”
            “Patented” by ReCreate to mean (when used alone) “I support this”. Uses of “this” (with nothing else) have generated quite a bit of heated argument over the past few weeks, because other people started using it for other purposes.

            http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=180068&l=4e2ddee9e7&id=100000607475680
            I had to make it, people. It was completely required

          • DarkHeartsAndSuch

            It was only a matter of time…

          • warhero1000

            honestly how did i not see that coming.

          • HonorèDerazey

            @Frank Ohhhhhhhh, ok. You weren’t quite clear on what you were referring to. I know what pronoun and patented is, I was just confused on why you would use ‘patented pronoun’. I a very literal person, be a bit more straightforward.

          • FuRrY321

            Is “genious” in brackets because it’s not spelled correctly, and therefore you’re making fun of it?

          • psychoJoker36

            No. ReCreate’s Genious is a company, that is why it’s in brackets

          • FuRrY321

            Am I detecting just a little bit of sarcasm there? ;)

            What happened to your avvie? Is it like what happens with Valerio?

          • ferretwithaspork

            For the record: [ + ] = brackets… ” + ” = quotes…

          • psychoJoker36

            I guess so

        • psychoJoker36

          YOU”RE WELCOME RECREATE!!!!!!!!!

    • Lax

      So why do you have it as your avatar?

    • Valerio

      the basketball player Rrrrocks with kuteness!

    • MagicalSarai

      It’s genius! That’s what it is.

  2. Majin-Wolf

    KING!!! ^^

    • warhero1000

      YES! King is back!!!

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        And cyooter/grouchier than evah, mrrrf! X3

        • Naylorfan90

          And now, to bring back a lame joke from the first story arc:

          All hail, the rain-ning KING! *giggles in his corner*

          • Cuckoo

            FACEPALM.

            Seriously though, I LOVE this.

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            O_O WOW! Nice AVI, nya!

          • rWolf1991

            Agreed! nice work

          • Cuckoo

            Thanks. It’s amazing what you can do with a little time in GIMP.

    • kingisawsome

      hurray. three cheers for King

  3. psychoJoker36

    Poor king, embarrasing photos

    • Challenger01

      Have to admit though, the one with the top hat is pretty snazzy! I’d wear it!

      • Frank

        For real? You’d have to be an Arctic Fox for that to look good!

        • Challenger01

          oh I don’t know, I think King should keep that look. I LOVE IT! If I had my own, I’d wear it every day!

          • rWolf1991

            I agree with Challenger king looks good in the last picture

          • kingisawsome

            I agree completely

        • Indagare

          Well, unless Challenger is Millie about.

      • Justice193

        I second this notion, the top hat looks epic :)

        • DarkHeartsAndSuch

          why do you think at least two people already changed thier avys to it?

  4. EchoFireant

    D’awwww, Just so Adorable :3

  5. IceKitsune

    This is just way too adorable. Most of these will be quickly turned in to avatars.

    • DarkHeartsAndSuch

      I call the top hat one!

      • Challenger01

        might be too late….

        • DarkHeartsAndSuch

          maybe, maybe not!

          • Frank

            Heh. I knew you were going to use a more cropped version!
            (yes, it’s working on my computer. God, I love knowing how to clear my cache :) )

          • DarkHeartsAndSuch

            something tells me you know how to fix the problem of the non-changing avy…

          • DarkHeartsAndSuch

            well i see the changes now… i have his head while challenger has him and the words nearby as well

          • Challenger01

            It’s K, I re-picked the one with the bat. Since you called it first, I will respect that. Besides they’re pretty close in terms of cute!

        • DarkHeartsAndSuch

          well, something failed in it’s ability to change…

          • psychoJoker36

            It is EXTREMELY irritating to wait for it to change. There is a second process, but it requires a second e-mail

          • Challenger01

            ditto, cause I am still working for it. If nothing else, the one with the baseball bat is pretty awesome!

          • DarkHeartsAndSuch

            yeah, i’ll just wait…

          • psychoJoker36

            I got fed up after a week of it not changing

          • DarkHeartsAndSuch

            A WEEK!?! … oh, great…

          • psychoJoker36

            Want the other method?

          • DarkHeartsAndSuch

            no, no, i’m good…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Hold down the shift key while clicking the reload button?

          • rWolf1991

            it works now :)

          • DarkHeartsAndSuch

            Yeah, NOW, not last night when I wanted it to

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Funny, shift-reload always works for me. Are you behind a proxy? Or are you using the browser that must not be named?

          • DarkHeartsAndSuch

            Is the browser that must not be named two words, whose initials are “I.E.”?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            … well played, yes.

  6. Two_Twig

    Is it just me or did King get even smaller?

    • Frank

      It’s probably just the clothes. They’re way too big for him, making him look even smaller.

    • CassidyAndBotch

      It’s not just you. http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/03/27/all-the-kings-men/
      Blame Pete having an odd sense of humour.

      • Ada

        Pete’s not nice, so this will never happen, but I bet King would look very fetching in Fido’s proportions.

      • Buckdida

        King’s always been really, really short. This is just the first time we’ve gotten a full body shot of him.

        If you look back at other comics, you’ll notice he’s even shorter than Joey!

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          Isn’t tha because he’s a corgi-worgi, nya! ~^w^~
          Corgi’s R always small, wif a slim long body, short legs and a cyoot smart face, nya! X3
          Ah luv Corgi’s, nyaha! ÓwÒ

          • MrMutt

            And corgi’s are basically the dwarves of the dog world, with the cute faces.

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Uhu, short legz in comparison to their bodies, nya! X3

        • Inu225

          I don’t know about you guys but I love Welsh Corgis.
          Especially their stumpy little paws. XD

    • kingisawsome

      have you noticed his ears are down which make him look smaller

  7. Frank

    “than usual”? How often does Pete do this to him?

    • Loki-Impisi

      Knowing Pete. I would say every second Tuesday.

  8. DarkHeartsAndSuch

    Awwww… He’s so cute! Though he definatly looks annoyed.

  9. Pokeblue

    That’s is so cute. I don’t know why but the last one seems a bit nicer than the others, I like them all, but it catches my eye somehow.

    • Frank

      Maybe because the fact that his paws are white make it look like he’s wearing gloves?

    • HonorèDerazey

      I would’ve expected the 2nd one to catch everyone’s eye. I mean, it I saw a guy going >=L out of like 7 people I would look.

      • DarkHeartsAndSuch

        uh… my eyes my be failing due to the lateness in the night, but i only counted 5 kings…

      • Pokeblue

        That catches my eye as well, and to some degree it looks rather fitting in a way, but the last one just gets me.

  10. ReCreate

    BEST. ONE-OFF. EVER.

    • Frank

      Oh? so you read the alt text?

      • DarkHeartsAndSuch

        is there a law against it?…
        really, i need to know this stuff!!!

        • Frank

          Heh. Nah, just pointing out the reference ;)

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      lol! Sure iz! X3 NYA!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Naw, they’re all grumpy king. The best one-off ever would have the happy king and the shell-shocked king as well. And maybe a burger king.

  11. HonorèDerazey

    Cowboy King FTW! DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS! =D

  12. Typhon

    So Pete is forcing King to wear clothes now huh. How evil

  13. psychoJoker36

    Wait a minute…
    THAT”S MY BASEBALL BAT!!!!!!

    • warhero1000

      Are you just gonna take that? he jacked yo bat! i would. he looks pretty mad like he wants to use it on somebody

      • Rambuctorium

        HE TERK YER JERB!!!!!!!!

  14. Jrogenshin

    That’s so funny! XD I especially love that sailor expression! XD

    • Frank

      Me too! It’s like “who am I supposed to be now? Donald Duck?”

      • rWolf1991

        haha nice!

  15. Elwood Blutarsky

    This strip has the best one-offs. Unlike say “Kevin and Kell” where the one-offs are just funny things the main characters do, this strip really uses these to full extent and lets them give spotlight to the secondary characters (like Joey or Marvin). It keeps you interested, a very nice call on Rick’s part.

  16. Frank

    It’s Purgatory? It’s still not bad enough to be l’inferno? (sorry, just saw a movie one-drop-too-many of Italian in it)

  17. falcon01

    I just love King’s expressions in each and every pose, the ” lets get this farce over with” look is just priceless.

    • ShiLin

      Seconded this. These expressions win.

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        Though teh annoyed expressions gib ‘im teh super-model look, nya! “^w^
        This is not workin’ in Kings favour, nyaha! X3

  18. cenizo

    Hahaha!
    Uhm, this should definitely have a link to the season finale wikipedia entry, that I’m sure is being furiously typed up right now.

  19. Frank

    Something I that today’s strip got me thinking about: If you invite a pet to a wedding, do they have to wear a tux, or do they use their “dress collars”?
    http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/08/12/dear-you-just-look-fabulous/

  20. SomeGuy

    In a sense King is dead. The him that was is gone and isn’t coming back anytime soon (if ever). If all purgatory is consists of living the life of a dog and some humiliation, I’d take that over Hell any day.

    Cute, btw. : D

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Why not just be good and go for Heaven? St. Peter is much more friendly than not so saintly Pete.

      • FuRrY321

        I thought that All Dogs Go To Heaven?

        • psychoJoker36

          No, that’s a common misconception. *Family guy flash to Goofy in Hades*

          • Argent Stonecutter

            There was one comic where Mickey went to hell, and Satan was Pluto. Yes, really.

          • FuRrY321

            Well, that explains where he went.

            Pluto, I mean.

            What was Goofy doing down there??

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I don’t know, the whole “if Goofy’s a dog then what’s Pluto” thing always bugged the heck outta me.

          • psychoJoker36

            Goofy was down there because Family Guy put him down there

  21. Rambuctorium

    There’s just something about the baseball player one that makes me feel like…
    like PUNCHING RICK IN THE FACE BLAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH AKJWDONHKFASNAWHNIODSIJAIOHNEFASKIDJ *runs out of house and explodes*

    heh, just kidding, but seriously the baseball one makes him look fat. Great job, btw.

    • Rambuctorium

      and one last comment, is King the first pet to actually wear PANTS!?

      • 2MK

        That’s because his tail is stubby, like a rabbit’s.

        • Elwood Blutarsky

          Considering the first out of his mouth when he realized he’d been turned into a corgi was “AAAH! I’m naked” you’d think he’d be glad to have some again.

    • HonorèDerazey

      I don’t know why, but for some reason I lol’d really hard at your comment.

  22. Ada

    Dressing your dog up is a little more normal in the Rickiverse, I imagine.
    But it is real purgatory for real dogs. XD

    • Frank

      Heh. This makes me wonder what it was like choosing the bomber jacket for Fox. Did they have to try many on him? How did he take it?

    • Inu225

      You know I always wondered about that. Pets in real life being forced to wear the most ridiculous outfits by their owners.

      What’s going through a dog’s/cat’s mind when wearing a getup like King’s.
      Do they enjoy an extra layer of skin?
      IDK I’m not a pet (nor am I human).

      • Ada

        I had some friends that cured their dog of barking with little outfits. Whenever it would start up they’d dress it up in a bee costume. He would slink away in shame, obviously aware of how silly he looked.

        Pretty soon it wouldn’t bark if the costume was held up, then he stopped barking altogether. o_o

  23. Lupus

    Best. Strip. Ever.

  24. Profesor Rod

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

  25. Justice193

    I love the navy one… “I am standing at attention and I hate you”

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      I know the Navy has had to make cuts lately but this is ridiculous.

      • Justice193

        ?

        I meant just the look on his face, like hes doing it but only because he’s being told to.

        • Dissension

          Is not attention, nor even “at ease.” Is “standing around.”

  26. Howls Like Wolf

    So, is it Mom or Dad who is dressing him up? Sounds like the Dad, but usually it’s the Mom that does dress-up with their pets.

    • DarkHeartsAndSuch

      You’re obvously new at this or just don’t recoginze who this is… Please educate yourself in the ways of all that is king… http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/12/25/so-this-is-christmas/
      (I may have given an incorrect link to the incorrect place in time… Feel free to correct me…)

      • Howls Like Wolf

        Yeah, I’m new … I read thru the whole comic, but somewhere I forgot about the griffin. Still, there was nothing to say it was any particular person doing dress up. And I still get confused. TY for the refresher.

        • Frank

          You know that below the comic, there’s the title, Rick’s comment, and then there’s the tags. These tags tell you who appears in (or is talking in) that strip. Since the tag says Pete, it’s obviously his speech bubble at the end; therefore, (and from what he says) he’s probably the one doing the dressing.

  27. Timothy

    Ok yeah the psychic lady was right he really is a jerk.

  28. Eric

    I like the backwards baseball cap. Totally 90’s cool!

  29. Weebz

    Dang, 80 comments in just a few minutes O_O
    Anyways, I like the old Tophat and suit one XD

  30. thrasherblades

    Lol King looks cute but totally bad*** in the baseball outfit. He looks like he’s gonna clobber me up with that bat too

    • psychoJoker36

      Hey, I don’t wanna be the comment Nazi, but you might wanna watch yourself

    • rWolf1991

      Remember PG

  31. steve

    This is an appropriate comic for the lost finale.

  32. BlueAnubis

    Te hee *snerk* Bwahahaha!

    Ah Rick, this is a whole new kind of fanservice. To all the King lovers and those who love getting new avys, Rick is, without a doubt, the best there is.

    You know you are going to have to do this with some of the other characters now, don’t you, Rick?

    • psychoJoker36

      OMG!!!
      SANDWICH FAMILY PORTRAITS!!!!!!!!

      • rWolf1991

        I think if that happens grape would go crazy!

  33. Gaboris

    Overdosing the King fanboys/girls, nice job, that’ll that’ll keep’em knocked out for a good time. XD
    Poor lil thing, you’re so mean to him right here. But it’s still adorable, I just love the second outfit of “badboy with a baseball bat”.
    BTW it’s amusing to watch his expression changes from “Oh not this again.” to “Just kill me.”, I’m so sorry for him. X3
    Just keep up the good work man.

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      Hear hear, nya! X3

      • FuRrY321

        I CAN HEAR YA, AERIX! NO NEED TA’ SHOUT!!!

        Sorry, was just watching some fireworks in my court/cul-de-sac.

        HAPPY VICTORIA DAY, EVERYONE!

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          O.O

        • Gaboris

          ?
          Sorry I’m Hungarian so what’s Victoria day?

          • rWolf1991

            I think it has something to do with WWII

          • FuRrY321

            Yes, it does. It’s also a Canadian holiday. So I had Monday off, nya!

            Did I just… meow?!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            That explains the lilacs.

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            @FuRrY321 – Oh-carp! Ah infectious, nya!

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Anyone know CPR, nya! O.O

          • Gaboris

            Sorry I only know the male-female type CPR. XD
            R.I.P. FuRrY. -_-;

            Kay bad joke. XD

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Should Ah try then, nya? “^.^
            But Ah ate toonah this evening, nya! “-_-
            And Goggy breath, smells like kibble… =_=
            *Get’s shovel*

          • FuRrY321

            *gr-GURGLE!*
            *GASP!*

            Aerix, your cowbell revived me! It cured the zombiosis!

            …wait, what are you doing with that shovel?!

      • Gaboris

        At leat I’m not alone. X3

  34. Law

    King is so cute and awkward at the same time…
    Now I guess “naked” has a new definition on Housepets!,,,or not?

  35. Foxstar

    Poor King. But hey, the rabid King fans should be happy now.

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      Fure AM mrfl! ÒwÓ *foams at the mouth*

    • Valerio

      mmmm, a nice dose of King is just what doctors prescribe for monday morning :D

    • rWolf1991

      Hopefully!!

  36. Inu225

    I have to ask.
    Dressing up your pets in real life.
    For or Against it.

    There’s no right or wrong answer.
    I’m just curious.
    Then again curiosity kills the cat. X3

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      O.O That’s not true, Ahm still ali…
      Wait… Ahm undeded… Never mind, mao… “-_-

      By teh by, Ahm for it, but only if teh pet in question likes it or if it is functional (like a sweater fur a short-haired/bald dawg/cat), nya!

      • psychoJoker36

        1) I think it would be adorable for pictures, but only for pictures

        2) Aerix, take your cowbell, darn it

      • rWolf1991

        The Snuggie for dogs!!

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          Yeah, so tha the egiptian hairless cat can enjoy teh outdoor, wifout gettin’ a cold, nya! ^w^
          Or a poncho fur chiwawa’s, mrrrf! ~^w^~ Wif sombrero, minya! ;p

    • Valerio

      I’m totally against it!
      Though, I’d give it a second thought if we *were* in the Housepets! universe

    • rWolf1991

      Agianist!!

    • Inu225

      Cool.
      Thanks all who participated in this official unofficial poll.
      All of you gave me great answers.

    • Inu225

      I think what it came down to was the difference between:
      Function vs. Fashion

        Love it.
        The cuteness is strong with this one.

  37. Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

    Poo, poor King… /._.\

    AH LUV IT!!! Ah hope we will C King on a dog fashion magazine purrr-ty soon, minya! X3

  38. Argent Stonecutter

    On fanservice: what a taunting taste you give us.

    On pet costumes: only if they’re awesome, like this one: http://www.ferretchick.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/air-ferret.jpg

  39. Valerio

    cuteness as weapon of mass destruction!
    Well though, rick-sama!

  40. ShadyKitsune

    Is this the first time in Housepets! we see a dog wearing pants?
    (Basketballer King is wearing shorts)

    • Dr. Prower

      yeah, I think so.

  41. White Pony

    He looks best in the cowboy… ahh, cowdog? hat.

  42. Valerio

    with that tuxedo, he could date Sasha for total win! :D

    • ReCreate

      this

  43. Betawolf

    D’AWWWWWWWWWWWW

  44. friendly fur

    Basketball looks most awesome :D

  45. Tehman

    Oh I thought King was talking about LOST for a second….

  46. Kalvin

    I think this is Housepets fan service before our eyes. :D

  47. mamoru

    fantastic back and showing off ^_^ GO KING !!!!!!

  48. Renoskunk

    I think the last outfit is my favorite. Just looks so adorable. :3

  49. FuRrY321

    I think in all of those outfits save the last one make him look really short. The tux just makes him look like a small boy who’s parents made him dress up for Sunday service.
    Who knows, it could even be one of those small tuxedos I’ve seen in the mall for $50!

  50. Tigergulp

    I always feel bad for the pets that are all dressed up in their owners desire for “a little person”. I’ll accept the bandanna around the neck as it provides good identification in a slew of dogs, or even a sweater for the breeds that have short coats and live with their owners where lots of snow is expected–but anything else is just animal abuse! XP

  51. MelSkunk

    I think I laughed even harder at the alt-text than the comic. XD

  52. FrostDemn

    I would just like to point out that every time I see King, I suddenly crave a PayDay bar.

  53. FlareKitsune

    It’s not so much that he’s used to it. It’s more of he’s plotting to kill you in your sleep.

  54. Ace

    HAHAHAHA! Nice. Why would it be purgatory and not limbo though? Purgatory is generally more positive than this! XD

    • Frank

      Purgatory, by its very name, is where you “purge” your sins. (Did something wrong? That’s where you pay for it)
      Limbo (again by its name) means the place where you just hang off the edge. No punishment, no nothing.

      • Ace

        Well, someone explained to me the game Dante’s Inferno, and Purgatory was in a more positive tone than Limbo. Basically, Heaven>Purgatory>Limbo>Hell IIRC of course…

        • FuRrY321

          I dunno ’bout “Limbo”, sounds pretty fun to me!

          Mind you, if you have a bad back I guess it would be worse than Purgatory… XD

          But I don’t believe in Purgatory. Only Heaven and Hell. Why should mass-murderers and serial killers be able to get into paradise (no, not that kind), even if they have paid for their crimes?

        • Frank

          Ahh, I see. You’re using the 14th century interptetation; circles of hell and what-not.

          Modern usage of Purgatory means: “let me beat you up for a few years; then you can get into heaven.”
          While for Limbo it means: “here is an infinite stretch of nothingness where you can do absoloutely nothing. Oh, and you have to stay here forever and ever.”
          “Can’t I trade it for hell?”
          “No”
          “Can’t I trade it for heaven?”
          “Nope. You’re stuck here for the next million years. Wait, ‘forever’ is longer than that. Well, have fun!”

          • Argent Stonecutter

            None of which is in the Gospel, or even the writing of Paul. it’s just some medieval pseudo-cabalism applied to the New Testament rather than the Torah.

          • FuRrY321

            Argent, are you a Christian or Catholic, by any chance?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I was raised Anglican. It’s not quite worn off yet.

  55. Dr. Prower

    Awww, King looks so cute in those little outfits lol

  56. Lanagor

    Ha… I can see why King relates that to the next best (or worst) thing,Hell.

    • Dr. Prower

      He would’ve called it hell, but it’s a PG comic, so he can’t say that.

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        He could say Hades or Tartarus, nya! ÓwÒ
        Good Ol’ Hadey, nya! ^w^ A lved his role in Disneys Herculese, kindom Hearts 1/2 and in teh series of Herculese, minya! X3

  57. Enty

    …and the fandom squeals xD

  58. e

    no purgatory mean to have a short punsihment before entering Heaven.

  59. Lupus

    My god, we sure got what we asked for :D
    Maybe we’ll see Fido and Spo in the next arc? I can’t remember the last time we saw Spo… And purgatory is not considered a hell anymore. It’s a temporary state before heaven where they prepare you and make you a better person, so you’re good enough to go into heaven. I’m an atheist and even I know that :P

    • Lupus

      I believe it derives from the term ‘purge’. As in purge you from evil…

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The problem with the purgatory theory… after he redeemed himself staying up all night with Sasha, Pete kind of ruled out him ever making it *out*.

      • FuRrY321

        Wah? I don’t think I understand you. King stayed up all night with Sasha, not Pete. And I don’t think either one of them is in Purgatory, considering we can still see them.

    • Dr. Prower

      If only there WERE a purgatory. But there isn’t. If there was, the bible would mention it.

      • FuRrY321

        But if there were a Purgatory, then that would mean you could earn your way into heaven. Which is why it’s not mentioned in the Bible: it totally conflicts with the Bible’s teachings.

        Very cute avvie, BTW. Did you put that together yourself?

        • Dr. Prower

          Actually, Kyderra made the avatar.

  60. overzen

    I like the Sailor king. It makes him extra cute! :D

    • Frank

      “For Love and Justice, the pretty sailor suited soldier Sailor King! In the name of the chess piece I will punish you!”

      • Argent Stonecutter

        You’ve just earned yourself another decade in purgatory for that. Was it worth it? :D

        • Frank

          It was for Love and Justice :D

    • Kalvin

      I have to take opposition to that statement. Cowboy King all the way. YEEHAW!

      …And thus began the great Housepets Schism of 2010. There was much bloodshed for the next hundred years over which costume King looked best in.

      • overzen

        And in the end, it was only thanks to the efforts of Abraham Lincoln King that the bloody hundred year Costume War was ended.

        • Kalvin

          And thus King said let no fan spill the blood of another fan, or he shall hath forfeit his fandom and be banished for all, then there were ten thousand years of peace.
          Amen.

          • overzen

            Until King showed up in a kilt, lederhosen, and knickers…then it all started again. ;)

  61. rWolf1991

    So out of this one comic came Three new Avis Wow!

  62. SamiwolfKo

    AWESOME. *loves them all*

  63. Hoheh

    “I hate you. I hate you so much. I will admit I look good, though.”

  64. hennessyvenom

    lol wut?

  65. Treeseky

    HEHEHE I work at a photo center for Sears :) so cute!

  66. Peanut Butter Sandwich

    awsome strip, cant wait for the next one

  67. AdriGummi

    Awwwww, King is my fave character of Housepets since I started to read it (Curiously, I discovered just when Joel was transformed in King), and in this strip is CUTE in extreme! ^^

  68. Majin-Wolf

    The league of extraordinary Kings!!! :-)

  69. Darcin

    Ffffffffffffff, this is painfully adorable.

  70. Torb

    *lurvs Corgis dance*

  71. Caleb

    King is without a doubt the best charicter in Housepets. And by now I think it should be obveous to everyone that he is the most popular.

    On a side note Best comic yet these pics are so so…. Everything that makes Housepets great.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I bet Rick is sorry he didn’t make Peanut a corgi now.

      Or maybe Bino…

      • psychoJoker36

        I don’t think it would be right if Peanut were a Corgi. And Bino doesn’t deserve it. Wait, what kind of dog IS Peanut?

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Toonhound!

          • 2MK

            I thought he was a mix.

          • FuRrY321

            That is a mix! A mix of cuteness and cuddliness!

            Which aren’t always together; I once had a cat that was very cute, but he was far from cuddly!

          • psychoJoker36

            Or an ugly dog that’s quite cuddly?

    • AdriGummi

      Indeed! I think that King became VERY quick in maybe the most popular character in all Housepets. I think he should stay like a corgi… he is much better like King than like Joel!

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        Hear hear, nya! ~^w^~
        And not only tha, if Rick dun want a global civil war, he’ll keep King as a corgi-worgy, nya! ~^w^~

    • kingisawsome

      I’m in total agreement with you there.

  72. Cam

    Basketball on should be his new normal set up :D

  73. FuRrY321

    I now foresee King being the waiter at the next date-scene. Would make for an interesting encounter, don’t you think? ;)

  74. Hoheh

    I like how Pete says “than usual”. He is probably (maybe) trying to teach King, but he is indeed kind of a jerk.

  75. wingedwolfgirl

    I …forgot to make a sigular comment yesterday.
    BUT…
    I M <3 -ing the gentleman at the end! :3

    • Frank

      “I’m astonished, Mr. Dawson! You could almost pass for a Gentleman!”
      “Almost.”

  76. toboe

    Of all time. Top hat King is so classy!

    • FuRrY321

      def classy(c, g)
      print c ** g

      >>>from King_is_classy import *
      >>>classy('King is so classy!', 10)
      King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy!

      • FuRrY321

        Well that didn’t turn out right!

        Or did it, since I used a combination of “code” and “blockquote”?

      • FuRrY321

        Okay, I see many mistakes in my own code, here we go again:

        def classy(c, g):
        ....print c * g

        >>>from King_is_classy import *
        >>>classy('King is so classy!', 10)
        King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy! King is so classy!

  77. Jitters

    CURSE YOU SEARS IN ALL YOUR COSTUMED PHOTO GLORY…. O_O *has horrid flashbacks of his own sears photo excursion* never again pink frilly tutu. . . never. . . again.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Before we switch to the next comic I just have to say that looks exactly like the background you get at either the Sears Photo Center or when you have your school picture taken. Clever little background gag there.

      But enough about King and all that jazz, let’s move on…

      • Frank

        The comic updates automatically at midnight, Central Daylight Time. Nothing we can do for the next twenty-something minutes.

      • kingisawsome

        hey I noticed that

  78. Lanagor

    Wow… I think the young wolfs motive and target for eating Kinda… scares me.

  79. Lanagor

    haha whoops commented on wrong comic strip

    • Rambuctorium

      May I say, fail?
      Don’t worry, though. I knew SOMEONE would get confused.

  80. J.J.

    Sorry King old boy… you’re NOT dead. Look at it this way…. you finally get a chance to wear clothes again.

    • kingisawsome

      LOL. thats funny

  81. THATguy

    I like the last one best. Kings really cute in a tux.

  82. MagicalSarai

    This is my favorite thing with King… EVER!

  83. CalaverX11

    I died of cuteness. Sailor = best expression ever.

  84. e

    He’s tormenting you!

  85. kingisawsome

    you will never guess who I saw yesterday.

    I saw KING walking down the street.
