    I seriously love one-offs.

    • Challenger01

      Also. gotta throw in the D’awwwwwwwwwwww

      • DarkHeartsAndSuch

        seconded. D’awwwwwww

        • JesusWasAGamer


          • ReCreate

            Fail. -_-

          • DarkHeartsAndSuch

            haha! !ssensdrawkcaB

          • Cuckoo

            Oh man, look at all the Kings. Also:

          • Challenger01

            Well clearly, everyone after my post is a king! I’ve been wanting to get a collar for my neck that mimics King’s exactly with the chess piece attached. Rick is just that influential…

          • psychoJoker36

            C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKA!!!!!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            With all these kings this is obviously a trick deck.

            Are you all going to do some magic?

          • Challenger01

            So Auzzo tells ReCreate to pick a card. ReCreate puts the card back in the deck, and closes it up. Cuckoo then pitches me the deck, I smack it with the bat, causing cards to go everywhere and DarkHeart pulls out the correct card, the King of Spades, while Argent and Joker look on in amazement. Is that a good magic trick for you?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            52 pickup! I love it!

          • psychoJoker36

            No. Because that is MY bat. I had the baseball bat before King did.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            So you’re gonna do a kind of “Fight Club” thing for it?

          • psychoJoker36


        • Auzzo

          C-C-C-C-COMBO STARTAR!!!!!


        • Chaz


          I’ve been waiting for this.

    • AflacMan13

      Nuf said.

  2. DarkHeartsAndSuch

    share the love!

  3. psychoJoker36

    Nicest one-off I”VE seen in a while

    • rWolf1991

      Ya I love it one

      • psychoJoker36

        Gotta love a year-ender of this calibur. Original characters, with the original plot set-up: Interrupt Grape’s nap

        • rWolf1991

          Yep I love how he incorperated everything in like that!
          Also I think Rick does deserves a vacation after all the work he’s done!! Who with me?

          • DarkHeartsAndSuch

            Agreed. Enjoy your vacation Rick!

          • ReCreate


          • Inu225

            I tip my hat to Rick.
            You deserve it.

          • HonorèDerazey

            Where are you going on vacation anyways Rick? On your next vacation I suggest going to the boarder of Mexico, such a lovely place! Every morning the delightful drug cartels across from our motel took time out of their schedule to wake us up with gun shots. The residents are delightful too! I was in a store, I spilt my soda and the store manager started yelling at me. =)

          • FuRrY321

            The “boarder” of Mexico? Well, I guess if you went by train or boat you’d have to talk to him, but I assumed you’d be going by car! XD

          • Loki-Impisi

            How about Seoul? You get woken up by the morning propaganda loudspeakers and get to watch the populous routinely barricading their homes. And you get to witness two distinct cultures just Kilometers away from each other! And some lovely shows put on by the South Korean military forces as they perform “Cirque Du Armistice” written by the wonderful choreographers in the U.N.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It’s the good old 38′th parallel blues. Guess y’all can call that… Seoul music.

          • Loki-Impisi


          • HonorèDerazey

            I HAVE been to Seoul! =D I love S. Korea!

        • Thoth

          It is nice to see the characters and their relationship grow without discarding the original foundation.

  4. EchoFireant

    I want to hug them both :D

    • ReCreate

      lol, this. just this.

  5. IceKitsune

    And let the teasing of the Peanut/Grape shippers begin

    • Valerio

      you doubted about that? ;)

      • IceKitsune

        I didn’t doubt that he would tease us (if that’s what you mean) I knew he would any good writer would. I mean watch any sitcom with something like this in it (The Nanny and Frasier come to mind right away) teasing is exactly what was going to happen once he got back to Peanut and Grape and it will go on for some time.

  6. JesusWasAGamer

    I love how they’re open about it now. :3

    • timmainsson

      I think its quite romantic and I hope it stays that way. And I know how he feels. Wanting to shout it from the mountain tops. she does too , except for the shouting part.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Dogs tend to be more into howling at the moon…

        • FuRrY321

          Nah, that’s more our distant relatives, the wolves. Us domestic dogs do more howling and chasing after buses and mailmen than moons. ;)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I thought it was rambunctious schoolkids who mooned the buses.

          • Frank

            I thought it was incurable romatics that mailed the moon :)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            “… and if you write the Moon Buggy a nice letter, then on Space Day he’ll come down in a cloud of boosters and leave Moon Rocks in your Space Boots!”

            “Aww, Dad, nobody believes in the Moon Buggy any more!”

        • Wingedwolfgirl

          Do I hear… howling session?

  7. Lutrinae

    She will not only kill him, but lovingly kill him. hows that work i wonder.

    • Pokeblue

      Maybe Grape just won’t KO him in the head. Hard to say.

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      With bear-hugz an shark-kisses, nya! O.o

    • Frank

      “I’ve always known…”
      “…from the very day we met…”
      “…and when you drew the cat tail…”
      “…it only reassured the fact”
      “…and when you started putting Stripe in your comics…”
      “…I was certain, but I couldn’t tell you upfront yet…”

  8. Odos

    Grapes expression in the third panel is awesome!

  9. Buckdida

    Gonna have to say that the third panel is excellent. It’s about time Grape got a blue-screen-of-death, with all the ones that Peanut’s been getting!

    • rWolf1991

      Haha. Windows

      • Justice193

        I’m terribly sorry, but everything can BSOD, an I’d be willing to bet that her operating system is an entirely new one, just because it doesn’t seem to fit the general personalities of any of the current ones ;) … it must be epic to be high tech, she recovered quickly.

    • rWolf1991

      That something I would do to my friends just to mess with them!!

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        Ah do tha allot wif ma beshtesh friend, nay! ;p
        But not saying Ah luv U, but by saying “Hi!” , mrrrf! ^w^

        Ah go like this:
        Me: ROSEroseroseroserose-rosey! O.O
        Rose: WHAT?! >.<
        Me: Hi!~ ~^w^~
        Rose: Could you stop doing that! It's ANNOYING! -_-

        • FuRrY321

          I love how you convey expressions in your posts!

          • FuRrY321

            WHAT?!? NO!!! MY CHICK FACE!!!!
            {^v^} < for the wings, but I guess this'll work.

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Thnx, nya! ~^w^~
            Ah do tha allot, so tha peepz understand teh context of mah messages, nya… “^w^ Ah had allot of discussions wif people, cuz they thought Ah said sumtin’ mean whilst it only was a joke, nya! “^w^

    • GameCobra

      What i loved about the third panel the most is that Peanut caught her at a stalemate.

    • ReCreate

      No, she runs linux. Thus, kernel panic. :P

      • Lupus

        NUUUU She runs ubuntu! UBUNTU I SAY!!

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          Cats always run on Ubuntu, nya! ;p
          They run only on programs they need, nya! ÒwÓ
          That’s why they nap so much, mrrrf!
          Only dawgs run on windows, cuz their CPU’s R always ta busy, nya! O.O

        • FuRrY321

          Ubuntu is Linux, silly! :P

        • Argent Stonecutter


          • FuRrY321

            I prefer my Linux experience to be much easier and with less setup. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find a distro/OS that supports both my WEP-encrypted network AND my external soundcard.
            Except for the KDE-based distros, but then network setup is a pain.

      • rWolf1991

        Kernel panic is for macs though.

        • ReCreate

          Mac OS is based off of unix. Which is a branch of linux. Thus, both have kernel panic.

          • rWolf1991

            True. Just I’ve never seen someone kernel panic a Linux before. Maybe it’s because they’re all programers and hackers! :)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I’m ready to solve the mystery!

            It was Colonel Panic in the USB Driver with a Buffer Overflow!

          • Atari

            I thought Linux was a branch of Unix. Well, not even a branch, but a recreation, nearly.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It’s an implementation of UNIX. UNIX is a lovely target for reverse-engineering because the API is not only extremely small and clean and easy to implement, but extraordinarily powerful. The first re-implementations of UNIX in the ’70s were the Software Tools virtual OS and Idris. SWT was followed by Eunice, Phoenix, MVS OpenEdition, OpenVMS, and the Windows NT POSIX subsystem. Idris was followed by Regulus, OS/9, Cromix, OS/9000, QNX, Lanetix, BeOS, and Linux.

            These days pretty much every operating system in general use is a version of UNIX one way or another.

            I have personally used about half the systems I listed. :)

          • FuRrY321

            THAT. IS. IMPRESSIVE.

            If I do say so myself :)

    • kusanagi-sama

      In Linux, its a kernal panic, Linux’s version of the BSOD.

      • Enty

        To all who have participated inthis conversation and past ones like it:


        ..and I mean this lovingly :)

  10. Typhon

    Panel 3 expression is priceless.

  11. rtlstien

    The cuteness meter is about to burst!

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      Peanut saying Ah lub ya & Grape gettin’ a mind-crush, nya? =3

      It’s a win win! \\(^o^)//

    • Valerio

      mine skyrocketed and went orbiting around Saturn!

  12. BlueAnubis

    You can feel the love, I love how lovely the loving love shows through with Grape. Her love for Peanut is like a loving river of loving, love.

    • psychoJoker36

      Do you get paid for every time you use the word “love”?

    • Rick Griffin
      • Rambuctorium

        I got to 24 seconds and I Ragequit.
        It was funny though! :P

        • Rick Griffin

          Bad memories of public television?

          • Firewing

            I Ragequitted when Emperor Palpatine (Spellcheck?) came onto the stage.

      • DarkHeartsAndSuch

        i think they, like blue, were paid for each use of “love”

      • ReCreate

        lol, what is this. XD

      • BlueAnubis

        Awesome, but I was more inspired by panel 4 of this http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=150
        And now that song will be stuck in my head all night.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I love how your alt text has been pretty passive-aggressive the last couple of strips. [sings] Oh can you feel, the scha-den-freude. How it’s laid on thick… something something… vagabonds… something something.. rick… la la la…

  13. Rambuctorium

    Nope. More like… 19 or 20.
    But, so im not uncouth, I liked this comic strip a lot. Heh, Grape’s expression in panel 3 is really funny; it’s like one of those “…what?” faces.

  14. Inu225

    What is Love?
    Baby don’t hurt me…

        There was recently a public health warning about injuries caused by headbanging. Make sure you only bob your head on the downbeat.

        I’m not making this up.

    • Rambuctorium

      That reminds me, I’ll be the guy on the bike that get’s hit by the car while no one notices/cares :D

        Cool, minya! OwO

      • Valerio

        it crashed my PC. Don’t TRY it ever again, man >:(

        • FuRrY321

          What, the head bobbing was too much for it? :)

          Or can you not play SWF files for some inexplicable reason?

          • Valerio

            I don’t know, and for sure I won’t risk another crash to find out!

          • FuRrY321

            Use Linux. You won’t have to worry about your computer crashing, unless you excel in overwriting every single file needed to boot up ;)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Linux isn’t obscure enough to be hip any more.

            You need to switch to Haiku.

          • FuRrY321

            I’m sorry, it’s just I’m so used to the way Linux works, and the BeOS-based look and feel just doesn’t cut it for me.

            Plus, it says it’s designed to work well with multi-core processors. I have a 1.6 GHz Celeron M single-core. I’d only considerate if and when I build a gaming PC.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            But Haiku is a chick magnet!

  15. Repicheep22

    …It’s seriously been two years? When did that happen?
    Well Rick, thanks for giving us so many laughs and love for two years.
    Happy anniversary!

  16. Rennis Tora

    To die lovingly eh?…

  17. Kurra

    What is meant by this comic? And relative to it, what is meant by the statement of the little tooltip that appears when I hover over the comic? Because I always look at those, and I enjoy this comic every strip, and am interested enough in the meanings of both comic and tooltip. Uh, please? Thank you :>

    • Pad

      On the comic strip, from what I could understand was that Peanut woke up grape for some stupid reason (as always), but since she screamed and would be very angry at him if it really was something stupid, he gave up what he was going to say and said that he loves her so that she wouldn’t get angry at him. And then Grape let it go, but just for this time. At least it was the way I could understand.
      Now, for the “tool-tip”… I think Rick was just criticizing those authors that can’t stick to the characters personality whenever they want to talk about love. Imagine if Bino, who is bossy and very jealous, became tame, friendly and all mushy whenever Sasha was nearby? That doesn’t make sense. And it looks like Rick is sick of this kind of stuff….

      • Thoth

        Oh, Peanut is quite well enough aware of the wake-up-Grape-and-get-mauled gag to have intentionally subverted it just to mess with Grape a bit. After all, he’s even done a poetic version of the joke.

    • Valerio

      it’s a homage to the spirit of the comic. We used to see a recurring gag in which Peanut would wake up Grape for almost any problem (often nothing serious) and thus causing her to react with irritation at him. The comic started with such a situation, in fact.
      Today, Peanut subvertes this rule by waking up Grape and telling her something really important to both of them, also underlining they’re still friends and for now they shouldn’t take each other too much seriously :)

      • Frank

        Heh. yeah. We’ll never get to see Grape finish a nap! :D

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The alt text is how Rick gets to break the fourth wall without breaking the fourth wall. If you need more details, hie thee to tvTropes, go!

  18. Snowmon

    Hey, that’s just like with my family! ‘Sept we use shovels.

  19. rtlstien

    I can’t believe it was a year ago that we finally saw a human’s face and it ended with the German Shepherd making fun of the fat PETA guy. Time flies by so fast when reading a great comic.

  20. Gaboris

    Just forget the freakin alt text man this is soo cute! XD
    Payback time in panel 3 for all the shocked expressions Peanut had so far! I love to see they still keep up their “new relationship”. Great job again sir, keep it up and have a great vacation. ;3

    • Valerio

      Rick really outdid himself on this one, by making it clear they’re still bestest of friends and yet underling a growing confidence on their feelings to each other. It is so…WOW!

      • Gaboris

        Yeah our fave author just made magic again. X3

  21. falcon01

    hehehe! warm & fuzzy!

  22. HonorèDerazey

    Awww, that’s almost how MY girlfriend says she loves me! Sometimes she actually means it. >.> Like one time I ate the last piece of probably the best pizza we’ve ever had and she chased me around the house with a kitchen knife. I’m not joking either. O.O

  23. Pokeblue

    Lol, Grape had a quick mental blackout in panel 3. Been awhile since Peanut did that.

  24. Pokeblue

    Just curious, is it hard to keep characters in character when talking about love? (The alt-text)

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      Well, peepz always try to romance things up, whent it comes to love, nya! =3

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Love is like running through the rain with an umbrella made of fire. It’s like being the tiniest little bird and swallowing the moon.

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          U meanz, it’s virtually impossible? ?O.O?

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I mean, this isn’t about chocolate.

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            !ÒwÓ Ah, U meanz; love isn’t always sweet, addictive and as creamy as chocolate, nya?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Only the kind of chocolate delivered by dark strangers who abseil down the sides of buildings and vanish mysteriously into the night, leaving you a tiny box in one of those designer colors that you can never remember when you’re in the department store trying to find matching drapes.

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Yes, luv tends to leeb ya confused, wonderin’ and incomplete, nya! “^w^

    • Frank

      How do you show your character’s love is true? You stuff him/her up with an increddibly mushy attitude and lots of stock references to Romeo & Juliet and the like! And when the moment has passed, everyone has to point out “Dude, that’s so totally not like you! What’s gotten into you?”
      If characters could, well, stay in character and demonstrate their love in their own way… let’s just say the world would be a better place

    • Howls Like Wolf

      From my experience, no one stays in character when they talk about love (or any other strong emotion, for that matter). When you’re “in character,” you’re just doing and being, but when you start TALKING about it, you have to try to put things in some sort of understandable logic.
      Love isn’t logical, and so it’s easy to get flustered and confused, and you get out of character. So, yeah – it’s hard to keep characters in character, too.

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        True, but from mah experience, Ah found out tha the first year of luv is mostly mushy and dreamy. =3
        But after U know teh person for a long time, love changes into caring and love becomes a trust factor, nya! =3 By knowing teh other vewy well, U become aware of his/her good and bad sides, nya! ^w^ And ya learn accept both parts of tha person, and ya act just the same way to tha person as ya would towards somebudy else, but then in caring way, keeping to your limits en his/hers, nya! OwO
        Like mah momah and dedeh, mrrrf! X3

  25. Valerio

    We love you too, Rick
    Enjoy your vacation!

    • Justice193

      I second this notion!!!

      have a great vacation Rick :D .

    • Frank

      Nice! New Avatar

  26. Jrogenshin

    Heh heh… I can tell it’s going to be a loooooooooooong year for grape xD

    At least peanut is gonna get killed… lovingly xD

  27. Valerio

    well, for once *he* broke her :D

  28. Valerio

    Grape must be *SO* blushing under her pillow :P

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      Yeah, or she has a tear in her eye, thinkin’: That’s the sweetest thing I ever heard…
      Nya! ~^w^~

    • Howls Like Wolf

      Um, actually, she is on he side facing the couch, in panel 4. I think she’s gone and gotten herself relaxed.

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        But she could still be blushing or a bit moved, cuz she’s not faceing us, nya! ;p
        She could try and hide her face, minya! ~^w^~

      • Valerio

        heh, someone else likes Catena Manor!!! Yay!

        • Shinmera

          Nice to see some more readers of that comic here :D

          • Valerio

            Bear and Hank are my favvie there :D

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Ah like Patches, she’s so 80’s, minya! ~^w^~
            And her sis, nya! ;p
            She glomps Morty allot, nya X3

            Toched by an angel ;p

  29. Valerio

    Panel 1: Best anniversary in the comic’s tradition.
    Panel 3: WIN
    Panel 4: The future.

  30. Dante

    Now that Peanut has mushy privileges, he’s gonna use them, I see.

  31. Ellix


    Have a nice vacation!

  32. Kyderra

    I was afraid Grape would start hitting Peanut with the pillow,
    (Aldo, a pillow fight in’st all that a bad idea)

  33. Profesor Rod

  35. anna

    omg grape is so friggin cute in this one!!!

  36. Tobee

    Hellooo random! :3

  37. Valerio

    aw, Grape, you CAN’T resist to a puppy smile like Peanut’s when he goes all mushy :D

  38. Me

    Comics while you’re on vacation?
    Now here is an artist devoted to his job.

    • FuRrY321

      Me: HE’S GETTING PAID?!?!

      Rick: I’M GETTING PAID?!?!

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        Me: WHO’S GETTIN’ PAID!?! O.o

        • frank

          Me said comics was his job. Ergo, he’s getting payed for drawing them. Rick would probably say “wait, what?”

          • FuRrY321

            You know what’s hilarious? When I said, “Me:” I wasn’t even looking at the username of the commenter to whom I was replying to! In fact, I just noticed it now! :D

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Sumtimes its very convuzzeling having a nic like tha, nya! ;p

          • Frank

            @Furry321: ROFL! Literally… chair turning over and everything… it hurt! But it was worth it! I didn’t notice it either until I wrote that reply at 6:22 AM, but didn’t give it much thought backt then because I was going to be late to class.

  39. Zek

    My God…. the cute is overwhelming….

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      Teh power of cute, is teh power of MOE~, nya! ÒwÓ
      P-power… Teh POWER! >.<
      POWEROVERWHELMING!!! O.o *Bursts in flames of passion*

  40. Tallywacker

    Wow…Peanut’s expression in the first panel is quite possibly the most entertaining thing I’ve seen all day.

  41. Stevie Maxwell

    Happy Anniversary Housepets!

    And if there’s an art style change after you get back from vacation Rick… hoo-boy will there be some interesting comments pages.

  42. AdriGummi

    Awwwwww!!!! Peanut’s innocence is really KWET!!! Lovely comic strip *chuckles*

  43. FastChapter

    End of the year!? It’s May! D:

    • Argent Stonecutter

      That confused me for a bit too, until I read the comments.

    • FuRrY321

      It only confused me up until I read “of Year Two”.

      And then all was made clear…

  44. MistingWolf

    That was adorable! I think this is now my favorite strip in the series so far. :} I do that kind of thing to my mate sometime, and it’s funny. So I can relate, too.

  45. TallenMF

    Mixing up something old with something new.
    Old: Peanut waking up Grape from her nap.
    New: Peanut telling Grape he loves her.
    Excellent way to end the year.

  46. Squival

    this is great xD

  47. Dr. Prower


  48. KennyT

    That suits them quite well. It seems so natural and comfortable for them. You’re very good at this.

  49. Silver Dragon ordinence

    That was AWESOMELY FUNNY. In a loving way.

  50. Valerio

    kuteness test

    • Valerio


      • FuRrY321

        Was that a German “ach!”, as in, “Ach du lieber!”, by any chance? ;)

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          Hey Ulie! Ein bier und eine wurstel fur die hund dort, mauw! =3

          • FuRrY321

            Gut, dass in Deutschland “Bier” ist so verbreitet wie “Wasser” hier!

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            It rimed and it’s true, nya! ;p

          • Frank

            Since we’re talking about Germany, summoning the spelling nazi in me is only appropriate:

            It’s “rhymed”, not “rimmed”

          • Enty

            Waitwaitwait… Nobody else remembers at all how out of character Grape acted around Max in that one arc (you know the one)? :/

            Just a thought.

          • Enty

            Ach, that comment was misplaced >.> Entschuldigung, meine Freunde.

          • psychoJoker36

            Grape wasn’t acting “out of character”. She was just showing a softer side of her that was hidden because she had no one to show it to

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            @Frank – Ah said rimed, not rimmed, siwwy Franky-boy, nya! ;p
            And by teh by, it’s a bit insulting to associate Germany wif Nazi’s, nya! >:3
            Cuz their R moar neon-fascists in America, then in Deutshland, nya! >:3

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Neon fascists? Bullyboy disco dancers? YOU VILL BOOGIE FOR DER VATERLAND?

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            lol! Ya saw teh pun, nya! ~^w^~

          • FuRrY321

            Nice one, Aerix.

            And he’s right: the average German citizen often hated Hitler and his Nazis just as much as the Allies.

            Except for when they were being bombed by said Allies.
            Then they just wanted it to end, one way or another.

  51. Ace

    I like how Grape just broke for a second in the third panel.

  52. warhero1000

    This was an amazing one-off. of course all the others were but this 1 was really great! anyway. have a nice vacation Rick!

  53. iHavezMyBirdo

    That just made me awww o-o

  54. Hopper200456

    Wheres Mums and dads during this?

    • Valerio

      Probably looking from a corner and refraining from DAAAWWing to avoid further embarrassment on Grape ;)

      • Hopper200456

        Thats my job!

    • Frank

      It’s a conspiracy! Miles is holding another barbeque just so Peanut can be alone with Grape!

      • Valerio

        wolves *know* better ;)

  55. CamKitty

    Ha ha, 3rd frame, he broke her a bit :P

  56. jack

    her face in pannel 3 was “oh dear god what have i done”

  57. Atari

    What scares me about this, is that Peanut seems happy about it. :b

    • Valerio

      Peanut just got mushy privileges! After a lifetime of self-repressing, these moments (loving death included) must be quite priceless to him. ;)

  58. Zurr

    I do enjoy your ability to keep characters in-character.

  59. Wingedwolfgirl

    Panel 4.
    …Those faces.
    …Priceless. :D

    Have a great vacation Rick; Ur comic Rox!!! :3

  60. Lax

    Wonder if he’ll try and kiss her? I know you all want to see it :D

    • Valerio

      For how much we want to see DA KISS, the truth is that we’ll be lucky to see a friendly kiss on the cheeck like she gave to him. For now.
      And, knowing those two, it is likley that it will be Grape to take the initiative and send poor Peanut straight into a coma with a passionate one :D

      • Dr. Prower

        Yeah. Personally, I think those two would be a cute couple.

        • FuRrY321

          They probably would be, but again, think of the awkwardness of near-brother and sister in love.
          Or you could just think of the cuteness and forget about the awkwardness :D

          • Valerio

            will someone STOP this brother-sister thing? It’s ridicolous! Every single pet couple in Babylon Gardens, where said pets are not blood-related is made of two or more housemates. The fact that some of them (like P and G) grew together should make you think of those romantic-humoristic stories like in Ally McBeal, where children grow up to lovers, NOT inc-st!

          • FuRrY321

            I need to get out more. That, or read more comics.
            *tries to search for BG but Google won’t let him*

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Isn’t Babylon Gardens the subdivision they all live in?

  61. Max Wolfe

    I keep laughing at Peanut’s face in panel one.

    • petitcake

      XD Same. I’ve re-read this like three times just to see that expression again.

  62. Wolfspawn

    teehee ^^ He’s so freakin’ adorable! :P

    • Valerio

      the wagging in panel 4 just adds to it!

  63. Wolven_Paw15

    *Dials Cell Phone*
    Sara- WHAT!?
    Me- LUV YA!
    Me- Yep X3 *Click*

  64. Hopper200456


    • Valerio

      just you wait… And let us not forget that Tarot too is rooting for this couple, in her own way.

      • FuRrY321

        I know we know Grape more than we know Tarot, but I’m still not sure if I’d like GrapexPeanut or TarotxPeanut more.

        Ah, what the heck!

        Go Grapenut! X3

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Tarot x King

          • kingisawsome

            I can agree with that

          • Valerio

            For how much I root for Sasha+King, sometimes I find myself thinking that Tarot, of all dogs, is the one who would better understand King and accept him, if he decided to stay a dog for the rest of his life. :O

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Not to mention that King is probably most likely to understand Tarot.

  65. petitcake

    …THEY’RE JUST AS CUTE AS EVER. I was really scared it might change between them D: (or indeed, their personalities would be stripped the minute they went all mushy on each other X3).

  66. Hopper200456

    “Ill love ya’,
    Even if the sky is falling down!”

  67. kingisawsome

    if there is one thing I like about this comic it’s two things. grape’s face in the third panel and when grape says “I love you too Peanut, but try that again and you die,lovingly.

    • Valerio

      it just so delineates the new twist in their relationship :D

  68. Ian

    It’s hard not to LOL at Peanut’s face in the first panel.

  69. Enty


    • Curious Fox

      Enty, Where did you get that picture of Peanut and Grape?

      • Enty

        Shopped it

  70. FunkyChickenFace

    Is it normal for me to not understand what Grape means when she says “try that again”? Is she referring to the “OMG…. I luv ya!” or the disturbing her sleep for something that she can’t kill Peanut for (yet)?

    • Valerio

      The second.
      Peanut got mushy privilege since last we saw them together, I guess that now she fears he could abuse a bit those privileges ;) After all, of all the things, she knows she can’t kill him for fully expressing his feelings. Disturbing her naps is a more dangerous game…

      • FuRrY321

        But it’s just so easy to wake a cat up!
        Just say their name and they’ll lift their head like, “What?!”

        • Valerio

          Do I know that. I owned cat for ten years. Some of them used to be a lot snappy if I tried to wake ‘em up by touching them instead.

        • Frank

          But just try calling one (when they’re awake) and see if they’ll come. Just try :D

          • FuRrY321

            Hey, it works on Aerix….
            oh, wait. He’s half-undead (the cowbell doesn’t fully cure zombiosis. It only works if the subject has been undead for less than a day).

  71. jthmlover8

    i belive, a tip o’ teh hat and a solid hour of cooing ar in order. <3

  72. mamoru

    so cute ^_^

    • kingisawsome

      this is a good comic one of my favorites

  73. Kume

    hehe I love Grapes Reaction in Panel 3. like she just doesn’t quite know how to react to that. XD

    • kingisawsome

      exactly what I think

  74. FunkyChickenFace

    Incidentally: how exactly do you die “lovingly”?

    • kingisawsome

      who knows?

      • WolvenPaw15

        You do it quick and painlessly instead of slow and painful X3

        • kingisawsome

          HAHAHA! funny

  75. Ian

    3 days later…
    Peanut dies…lovingly.

    I need halp wut ma Gravitar. When I submit a picture, the cropper doesn’t move.
    Plehz rehplai!

  76. The Wolf Next Door

    I really hope Peanut doesn’t die… Lovingly then we’ll miss the poor guy immediately. But it’s always nice with mushy privileges ^OwO^

  77. Daniel B

    I’d just like to say, congrats on the Ursa Major Award. I’ve been following you since well before you started this, and I’m very proud to count you among such diverse and talented winners as Kyell Gold… and James Cameron.
