Pete, you’re mean
If I were King I would bite his Juevos off.
If that’s what I think it is, I wouldn’t bite it lol.
It’s spelled “huevos”, it means “eggs”. I think the context makes things clear…
Sorry I am Caucasian not Hispanic or Latino and I failed Spanish class because I moved states middle year. My bad on the typo.
morderse la lengua
It’s nothing wrong about saying wrong a word. I mean, I’ve been corrected in English douzens of times and sometimes is quite umpleasant. We’re humans and we have mistakes.
In the other hand, for you reply to Argent Stonecutter, the etnicity doesn’t have direct relation with the language… not all the people who speak Spanish are hispanic or latino. People from Spain (Europe), like me, are usually caucasian and speak Spanish, and I know Latin American descendant people who only speak English.
I am just waiting for the inevitable fight scene between King and Giant Griffin Pete where King’s true identity is revealed to everyone and he has to decide between staying a Pet or becoming Human again.
And now this section of comments forms a pyramid ^^ Enjoy while it lasts.
And I am at the tip. HA!
Aww, ice cream Rick.
I agree, and Now We know where the pets here keep their cash…. Pete, you meanie! >:<
I thought we knew where they keep there cash.
I wonder, is there a pocket inside their collars (or bandanna in this case)?
I wonder if pets ever get robbed.
Bad Pete! Bad!
KING IN PANEL 3 MAKES ME SQUEE SO MUCH!!!!!
MY KIDNEEEEEEEEEEEYS! THE CUTE!!!! AGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHRRRRR!!! *dies*
Your KIDNEYS? Ugh. Go outside to do that.
Cute = sugar = diabetes = kidney failure.
Kidney Failure = Everyone’s laughter
that’s not funny…
It’s all fun and games until someone get’s their kidney stolen…
Panel 3 King is adorable!
I prefer panel four face: crackle and pop. …Oh, and SNAP
Also, the expressiveness of the ears on that Corgi knows no limits.
The range that we see from his eyebrows and eyelids may be unmatched as well.
Absolute σ_σ face!
Weres that avi from?
If interested I found it here.
I could die happy any moment now!
I concur! <333
Darn it Pete you jerk.
Wow Pete you’re Mean!!!
I made that statement first, Wolf. Get a new one
Umm… Idk what to say!!
Which means you have failed. Go cry in a corner for thirty seconds.
All in good fun though ^-^
Pete mean you’re wow?
XD That is awesome. You know this to be true.
…I concur this also.
Wolf, your new avatar looks like he’s singing into the popsicle. XD
The Phaaaaaaantom of the opera is therrrrrrre inside your miiiiiind.
Phantom of the opera reference ftw
He’s trying out for American Idol XD
PEEKACHOO ICE CREAM MY LOVE OF THIS COMIC IS COMPLETE
OH SNAP XD
It ain’t pika icecreams! It’s something FAR CUTER
Who’z that HousePet?!?
That is NOT a corgi
Why would King eat his face?!?!
love the look on kings face, well done Rick
LOL, nice avvie! XD
Wow Pete is pushing some serious limits there.
Given what usually happens when the Good Ol’ Dogs Club throws an event that might actually be justified For instance, they CAUSALLY burned down a building…during an Easter Egg Hunt…and eat most of the eggs anyway negating the point of a competitive hunt!
How could we forget THAT?
I never did find the egg in panel 3.
Bino ate it. >.>
That’s panel 4, panel 3 is third cinder to the left
So that’s where pets keep their wallets.
We knew this!!!
Hmm at least 3 new avvys available. who will be the first to claim one?
Wow! The prices for the ice cream are so low! It once cost me six bucks for an ice cream like King has.
Does anyone else think King’s ice cream looks kind of like a Lombax?
Either a Lombax, a Pikachu, or Rick’s avvi with red eyes
but pikachus have black ears.
It’s a novelty ice-cream, man. You think they’re gonna get that detailed?
Well they should!!
But I think youre right about ricks avi cause the other one they show on the truck look like a ferret or furret!
Now that i look? Yes, it kinda does.
Your avvi = LOL
with paint you can make funny things even funnier!
Yes. Yes you can
Simple paint trick. X3
I call the ice cream!!
Wow I think this was the first time gravatar worked the right way!
Yeah, but so far I’ve only seen you and me change…
True but everytime I try to change it doesn’t work right!
If it doesn’t update try choosing the avatar and refreshing the selection page ’till it changes. :p
Or clear your cache, refresh, and if it still doesn’t change, post a comment. Mine didn’t change for me until a new comment was posted.
For example, my new avvie (I call him Red-Eye Steve) wouldn’t appear until I posted this comment
Hold down teh shift key when you hit the reload button.
I think It’s a moglin. http://i41.tinypic.com/2u4t0yd.png From Adventure Quest.
I wuv that game ;3
Meeee toooooo… but my character suuuuuxxxx
I have like 55 unspent attribut points because I don’t have enough gold to spend them on attributes! Trainin’ be expensive.
I’m astonished nobody has adjudicated themselves an avatar armed with that adorable smile in panel 3 (now with 300% more A’s )
A Rikitakawi- shaped ice cream? I’d buy that!
Rememebr that “king” started as a meany too….he isnt a dog, he is a mean ol’ PETA human!
But…he is cute now
and cute obviously balances out mean
Well, only in cases like this, where he traded the mean for the cuteness. Not so much in the ones where they’re mean just cuz they’re cute. Those people are dispicable
Joel isn’t mean, he’s messed up. Pete’s *keeping him messed up*. Which is messed up.
Messed up man.
Bite him, King. You’re a dog.
Small Corgi vs. magical Gryphon.
Small Corgi VS Magical Gryphon (temporarily) in a human body.
I’d say he has more of a chance than you’d think.
Pete can change forms at will and has shown control over King’s mind. So no, no chance.
Who knows? At this point it’s still possible that some simple impulsive act of rebellion could banish Pete to some weird interdimensional void.
It doesn’t seem likely, but there really isn’t enough information on Pete to determine what limitations apply to him.
I like King’s face, he’s like WTQ
What the Q…?
You’re not old enough to know about the Q.
Quite. He is not.
I know plenty about the Q!
Aaaaaand the link didn’t pop up. Trying again…
Wrong Q. What is your clearance, Citizen?
Uh…clearance? Um…oh boy…
Don’t be concerned, the Computer wants to help you.
Eh? Not old enough?
What the queef/quack/[otherrandomwordbeginningwithq]??
$5 says FuRrY’s comment is gone by tomorrow lol
Oh yeh, post that after I go to bed, you’d have been SO covered if I’d seen it last night.
Alright, Prower, where’s my five dollars?
You didn’t specify exactly WHO that bet was going to, so I’m demanding you give me that money – with interest!
Whoops, that hasn’t happened in a LONG time…
I know that avie!
Fox in panel 1 and King in panel 3 makes me squeeee! :3
Did anyone care to notice Fox just pulled a wallet out of his bandana/scarf?
Peanut did the same before. I call magic.
Well, he doesn’t have other pockets…
Ya where do you expect him to put it?
Oh that’s a wallet. I almost thought he bought a fudgesicle for later XD
Or to keep him cold!
He’s got a collar under the bandanna. It’s just that the bandanna is covering it. Uh…where’s that one comic…
Well why not? Maybe Fox has a pocket was sewed into the bandanna?
Is this the first time we’ve seen King smile?
He should do it more often!
No, he smiled last Christmas. Right before Pete brain-crashed him.
He’s smiled more than that!
King + Ice cream = TOTAL WIN!
For a second I thought he was eating corgi ice cream. XD
Corgi eating Corgi Ice Cream = EPIC SUCCESS!
(as opposed to epic fail)
wow at first I thought fox was stashing some chocolate Icecream in his bandana for later…
lol me too!
Nothing will get in his way…, except for Pete saying ‘no’.
Pete is mean. And…is that a wallet?
Pete isn’t mean. Hes a jerk.
Pete is a mean jerk.
Pete is so Jerkfully mean.
so meanfully jerky
Mmmm… gryphon jerky. Nom nom nom…
pete is so considerate and nice
Yeah, you can tell he loves a good party.
One has to wonder what Pete does in his spare time.
Personally, I think he spends his time watching a plethora of movies to make up for lost time.
1. In his spare time Pete thinks up ways to mess with people.
2. Spare time? What spare time? Being this much of a jerk is a full-time job!
I think Pete’s “job” is that he’s trying to being about “the end”, as Tarot said. Pete seems to be the sort of evil-supervillian who is slowly accumulating his power behind the scenes before he unleashes his ultimate plan.
Everytime king smiles the king fans go crazy!!
Killjoy…why did he even ask Pete? Why didn’t he you know just leave at the time of said party/BBQ/cookout? I presume this or something similar will happen anyway.
How do you know King even said anything?
True freakin Pete knows everythin, but realy why can’t he let King have at least SOME joy in life? XP
Because that is Pete’s goal: To remove all hopes of hope in King/Joel’s life
Kay true, but how could he learn to be a better person like this? … OOOooor… it could be to show King how bad of a life can some gods have cuz of their owners… Like poor lil Sasha, so it may be a referenc for the future. :3
… some gods … ?
Didn’t you know? Dogs are gods.
All Hail Coyote!
Kay-kay I had a laugh there now sush! XD
Once again Pete shaters King’s hopes…
However the face King makes in the last panel is very hilarious!
Ah well. Who knows? If Joel / King starts to have fun as a dog – or even actually comes to enjoy being a dog – THEN it’s obviously time to change him back. That way he can lose any new friends he has AND go back to court with an escape charge to add to petnapping.
I know pete may be mean, but lets all hope he is not THAT mean,,,
Yeah and that would ruin all the work with Kingso far… and it would be sad. XP
It’s official. I hate Pete with every fiber of my being.
We all do bro, we all do.
Yew rotten basket, that sounds depressingly likely.
And here is where Pete learns why a corgi was a very very bad choice to turn King into…
Corgi’s bite… They bite ankles. HARD.
Sic ‘im boy >:)
Ga Ha I think I know what that Ice Cream is It’s…….It’s…… hold on………………………….. O here it is http://i41.tinypic.com/2u4t0yd.png Its a Moglin. I think…. ya know from Adventure Quest
Nope, not quite.
The ice cream is based of a certain Danroo. (At least, I think they’re called Danroos.)
Hmmmm possibly. OR! is this the danroo based on the moglin GOOD SIR. And on that note is it actually ice cream or is it a sugar cookie on a stick.
Actually it reminds me of Ponbon but with purple-ish stripes.
I can definitely see that being it. except the read eyes but still it’s hard to ignore that proof.
Or its a thing Rick made up for Ice cream!
….You arn’t allowed in here anymore.
Interesting username there.
Well, someone had to like the Gravatar logo
One has to wonder what else Pete does with his time as a human besides being a jerk to King!
He’s a telemarketer of course.
Not even Pete would… would he?
I think Pete might be sadistic.
I TOTALY forgot aboot Pete when makin my ideas yeasterday… course he would have just made the list way longer so let’s forget it. XP
I don’ know if King realy wants to he could just go no matter what… but who knows if it’s a good idea even thinking about going against Pete. I sure hope this’ll turn out good for poor King and he can go in the end.
BTW did YOU guys ever try to put your wallet in your bandama? I’m sure it would fit and would never fall out. XD
Birdface deserves a beating for that one…
I have to admit I almost forgot about the jerk for a while there, with Kings hanging out with frienda and all.
King’s hanging out with friends* sorry it’s dark in my room =p
Well that foreteller did warn everyone how evil Pete was. The fact she even knew she existed means she was probably right about everything else too.
Knew he existed… -_-
fox keeps his wallet in his bandana? wow…
Well, there aren’t many other places to hold one when you walk around naked all the time.
Also, Peanut does similar, and I’d guess other pets do too.
Pete.. you’re a douse. Bite him King! Big him hard!
Pete is still in charge of King, I’m pretty sure if King tried to attack him he would only succeed in making things MUCH worse for himself. Pete can warp reality while King can’t even say his real name anymore, the corgi wouldn’t stand a chance.
am i the only one who remembers that King and Pete are bad people? Everyone wanted king’s head when he was human…and tarot tried very hard for Pete NOT to get released. these two should be feared for whatever reason. because PETA is weird and i would trust Tarot well before i would trust Pete.
While I wouldn’t call Joel/King a saint or anything like that, I think he wasn’t “evil” so much as having some childhood issues that skewed his thinking, and got compounded by ignorance of what the Housepets-verse PETA does.
I won’t defend Pete, though. He definitely isn’t on the side of angels, so to speak, and I for one wouldn’t trust him further than I could throw Joel’s jail cell (or, heck, as far as I could pick it up ).
exactly, so no matter how well you dress a wolf up like a sheep…its still a wolf. While even though Joel is now a dog…its his punishment that he must bare, and nothing about punishments are supposed to be fun. I’m just waiting till Pete makes his move, will Joel change his ways…most certain, Has he done it yet? not by a long shot.
That would make sense if Pete’s actions made any frigging sense at all.
With no real information on Pete’s motives it’s hard to say if he’s bad or not – and Joel/King seems to be seriously conflicted, easily led, and thoughtless rather than being a bad person.
A sweet treat that ends sour by Pete.
Now that’s what I call “Bittersweet”.
Did you seriously make a Bittersweet Candy Bowl refferance O.o
Honestly I don’t know what’s more colder.
Pete or those Ice cream bars.
Hey I cant remember but I noticed in the first panel he has what look like dog tags under his scarf. Did these show up earlier? Or is this the first time they have appeared?
He’s actually had the dog tags since the beginning, even before the bandana.
…….. Dang. well there goes tons of conspiracy theory’s right out the door.
He has DOGtags!
There’s a difference between teaching a lesson and being cruel
Aahhhh Peeeeeeete whyyy
Pete, you’re being cruel! >_< Poor little cute King… For one time he wanted to go…
I think Pete hates King just as much as King hates him.
I thought that Pete only wanted to teach him a lesson… but in any moment I thought he hates him… but this strip makes me doubt if you’re right. Maybe Pete has a reason… we’ll see in the next strip!
Heh, I wonder which word there triggered the moderation? The L word or the 4 word?
I guess comparing a griffon to a griffer is verboten.
Lol! I just noticed! “Pete” Griffin! Family Guy reference ftw!
Go stand over there in the corner and cry for 45 seconds (30 is too little, Psycho).
And if you complain, he’ll make it a full minute.
Who is crueler, Pete or Rick?
Wolf seems to hide his wallet fairly good. And just had to point out the mood ears!
I bet the raccoon ice-cream is nummy.
If you look closely, the ice cream King picked is shown right behind the speech bubble that reads “Except for Bino.”
I know. I still think I’d go for the ‘coon.
Hey, Pete, too bad you didn’t get to be the big star in this comic.
Instead we only got a peekatyou!
Fox in panel 3: EPIC
Seriously, Pete? Why do you like ruining King’s life?
Why not? They guy may have enough magical power to wipe out the human race but instead just uses it to screw with one single person who wasn’t all that great to begin with. No more PETA lackey guy threatening your pets and life goes on as normal without an Armageddon-level event. Seems like a win-win to me.
Some people are natural minions.
Okay, I see. This isn’t an arc about King getting a girlfriend. It’s an arc about King’s life being miserable because of Pete.
A girlfriend would still be awesome.
I could see a few ways that could lead to his life being more miserable than Pete’s making it.
Who knew he could fit a wallet in there. Also poor King he was all psyched up too
teehee pink lolipop
King’s face in panel 3 is soooo cuuuuute! Kawaii! X3
I either forgot or was unaware that King had an owner.
Poor guy, at least he’s got Fox as a m8
I’m going to assume you mean ‘mate’ as in Australian slang for friend.
I don’t know, he might not have.
We should jump down his throat, just in case.
Speaking of props, doesn’t Grape still have that mystery feather?
LOL theres an ice-cream truck that comes to my neighborhood every wednesday
*puts on monocle* If we were to entertain the theory that Pete has a noble motive for this action, then we could surmise that he’s simply attempting some basic reverse psychology. He’s telling King he can’t go so that King will get frustrated and realize that he really does want to buddy up with the other dogs. Pack animals, and all.
*Puts on monocle and tophat*
Indeed. King will most likely sneak out of the house to go to the party.
You call this tea?! It’s not tea, it’s crap!
*Throws tea at Pete*
It’s herbal tee! Grass is a herb!
*puts on tophat and duel-wields monocles*
I say, our dear chap King seems quite aggravated about not getting to go to the party. I hope your hypothesis is correct.
*sips tea, then remembers he doesn’t like tea and spits it out*
Aren’t dual-wielded monocles called “glasses”?
I think he meant “waves his monocle like a sword”.
when i read what pete says i hear this british accent in my head
aww, disappoint King is disappoint
I told you that Pete was mean. Well, I told people on the forums. And it wasn’t just me, half of the people there told you all too. And Tarot told you in the comic. Well, who cares who told you, you have proof now! Pete is a big-mean-stinky-stupid-ugly-butthead!
Such wise words of wisdom. Hear this man speak, listen to him, and accept that Pete is to be hated.
OH NOOOOOOOOOOOO /heavy weapons guy
I would use the OH NOOOO button from the Instant Heavy, but it’s giving me a forced redirect. So text for you.
Someone tell me, what breed of dog is King? I’ve been trying to figure it out since the start. D: Is he like… a slightly large chihuahua, or what?
He’s an adorable little Welsh Corgi.
Here’s a dog that looks EXACTLY like him: http://bikkjesnuter.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/pembroke_welsh_corgi_600.jpg
Oh, he’s a CORGI! It’s so hard to tell on two legs. xD Thank you!
Whee! Another level!
King! Get up on your feet!
Look! A Pyramid!
Look! A complete pyramid!
You broke it!
But now there’s two.
But, but, but PEEE-EEEEEETE!
Lol. That would be an awesome ALT alt text
Oh god.. could King go any more “WTF?” like in the last panel?
Aww, poor guy o.o
What’s the policy on these things in the Housepets world?
In Karl’s world, animals talk but not much else. When you add reading and feather fingers to that, I doubt such a thing would even exist, since for it to work it needs to be able to go unnoticed
He doesn’t have to go, and now he has an excuse not to.
He *is* anxious*.
He would be eager.
Ouch, go Pete XD (please don’t kill me)
i bet the party comes to him…
THAT would be FUUUUUUUUNNNNN
Oh, man, that would be amazing. Pete would be BSOD-ed.
Lol, love King’s face in the 4th panel.
King is taking it a lot better than this kid is:
What if your gaurdian over your account of money wont let you have your money?
so its true…he realy IS a jerk
Time for Kentucky Fried Griffin
Pete, you jerk. Not even your awesome cool mustache can save your plummet from coolness right there.
i wonder if the “your not going” guy knows that King makes pretty funny expressions.
I still love your avie!
king- they said i can’t go.
Fox- then we’re gonna have to do something so horrifying that they’ll have to say yes.
King- or we can just sneak out.
The first time I saw this, I thought he was putting a chocolate bar in his scarf on the 1st Panel. xD
lol me too.
King is one of my favorite characters. After he became a dog that is.
Watching him going through it all is just so interesting.
Can’t wait for the next update
I don’t think so…they’re just best friends; or more specifically, Fox is King’s ONLY friend.
(Signing in after reading the archives 3 times and laughing on each time; though after this last strip I HAVE to comment the following:)
You know, if Pete isn’t careful, King/Joel is going to reach a point, and a reckoning, where he will eventually have nothing to lose. And all of his pent up aggression and resentment is going to explode, and if he dishes it out on Pete, or anyone else for that matter, it’s going to get ugly.
What are you implying?
Well, let’s just say I’m surprised King/Joel didn’t attack Bino after that stunt during Christmas. And, whether Pets is powerful, or invulnerable, or not, in his present form, King/Joel could reach a point where he won’t care, because he’ll realise he has nothing to lose.
He didn’t have to attack Bino.
I think that’s why he made him so small. King is now so harmless to Pete, he’s just a form of amusement. Pete seems to be a self-righteous jerk with WAY too much power. Torturing King (formerly Joel, remember) is just a way for him to get off with justification.
It’s also a cartoon, so, “Rule of funny”.
I’m gonna stop replying to comments like this….
I knew that comment would be gone.
So Fox keeps a wallet in his bandana? I don’t know if that’s brilliant or just odd.
I’m going with brilliant.
So much for that promise. Here is a suggestion, maybe they can have the cookout at King’s house. >:3 Btw, has anyone thinks that King should at least ask Pete one time if he could invite some the neighborhood pets for the night over?
That would be awesome!
Well I’ve just caught up, from the start. Took a couple hours but it was worth it. Now I’ll have to keep my eye on this series too.
Looks like my comment was deleted :’( Sorry if i wrote something that didnt please the artist of this great comic.
Reading back to find something a bit more concrete to contribute than “Pete is a big old poopyhead”, I looked up where Pete explained what he was doing to/for Joel, in the Dec 2, 2009 strip.
Maybe I’m just dense, or I’m in need of a caffeine infusion, but I’m not seeing where prohibiting Joel!King from going to that gathering is somehow going to do anything to Pete’s claimed goal, of breaking Joel of blaming animals for his problems. I would have thought that more interaction with other animals would help show Joel!King that the experiences as a child with the family pets weren’t typical, and that not every pet is a jerk.
You’re assuming that Pete’s actually telling the truth.
But Pete, he so wanna go, mao! HEWANNAHEWANNAHEWANNAHEWANNAHEWANNA! >.< MAO!
Mrrrph! Ah gonna cal him Butchere Pete from nao on, nya! Ò.Ó
Okay, I just realized something funny; I used to know a real life Fox and King! My mother has a friend who used to own two dogs; A male Malamute named Kimo ( as in Kimosabe) and a male Welsh Corgi named Buckaroo, and they got along pretty well if I recall. I just had to mention that!
I think the correct response to you, Sansash is “this is what we have a forum for”, but that’s just awesome!
That is why you should include the phrase, “everything in my power” somewhere in a promise like that. XD
Since when does Pete read the paper?
Love how he keeps his wallet in his bandanda, I do the same with my goggles.
Oh Noes! I think I’ve been quoted!
I want the raccoon treat!
