King=Best character ever!
He’s the “everyman” character who reacts like the reader would isn’t he? Kind of like Frank Grimes on the Simpsons only…you know…not dead. Actually Grimes is also hugely popular with his particular fandom similar to King.
I couldn’t agree with you more. I think too since King/Joel was originally human we can easily relate to his character especially when he has to deal with unusual situations. (i.e. eating dog food, getting locked up in a small cage, smelling other dog’s bu… you get the picture).
Not to mention his dog form is just darn cute. It’s easy to see, in my opinion, why King is top dog. (Pun intended)
Just give King a crown already, I mean, his name is KING! And seriously, cuteness goes off the scale when King is involved.
Even with an unsightly bump on his head, King is still cute!
I completely agree with you. Frank Grimes is exactly who I think of when I think of King. Franks voice is actually how I read all Kings lines in my head.
‘He’s the “everyman” character who reacts like the reader would isn’t he?
If the reader was drunk all the time. Pretty much the only thing he’s pulled off that worked was Sasha’s shed, and he did that offstage. Every second strip he’s in it seems like we’re all going “OH NO, KING, DON’T DO IT” and he does it…
…and then we laugh.
Or both. Yes.
I hated Frank Grimes, but I do love Kingy :3
This can’t be good!! O.o
i like were this is going
They finally meet!
And doesn’t look a happy meeting!
grape being grape
Drunk King being Drunk King.
grape hurting drunk kingy lol
quick way to get out of a mualing
ooh this is gonna get furry! wait… its already furry…
the fur will fly
All we need now is Bino with another exploding present!
Mukavich get the catnip, We’re going Bino huntin
“Get the Diesel Fuel, Zach…”
That violence is why I fell in love with Grape in the first place
Look, don’t go that way Wolf. This is a PG site
says the alt text.
It’s talking about his ARM. Or his LEG. I hope, anyway.
…Does the head count as an appendage? :O
nasty psycho lol
i wasnt going to say anything!!
LOL XD this is getting even more interesting.
thats grape for ya
Hooray, Grape! Now, which appendage to start with?
oh ohoh go w/ that one
I think it give a disturbing allusion in the alt text… >.>
Dont go there!
I hadn’t though of that till you said something…
“Oh what nice long EARS you have!!!” “AGGGGGGGHRRRR!!!”
Well, on the bright side, maybe after the docs replace his ear, he’ll look more like Sasha. You think he’s cute now, just imagine him with floppy ears.
King + floppy ears = CUTENESS OVERLOAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have you seen a pembroke with floppy ears? They get squished way too much. Mainly by women.
But they exist!? SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE
XD Grape was going to kill him for hitting on Tarot (that doesn’t really surprise me at all)
Also why is Grape even there and is Max with her. And wait if she didn’t know that Tarot was going to be there does that mean that Peanut isn’t there or did he come with Grape?
And just Wow at the alt-text XD
If you really need an explaination about her being at a Good Ol’ Dogs Club event go with the same reason she went to Fido’s party: she likes the taste of dog biscuits. Either that all the neighbor pets showed up because a party is a party plus half the non-Bigglesworth cats have dog siblings anyway to give them an excuse to tag along.
The real explaination of course is the Rule of Funny. No one but Grape can deliver a line like that.
Also, she’s there in case of an emergency that can only be resolved with the taste of Frying Pan to the Face. >:3
Frying pans solve everything.
Although a broom works too.
BROOM TO YOUR FACE!
Brooms are also the perfect weapons when fighting space rednecks in space diners. They’re soft so they won’t put a hole in your space suit, and if you lose them into orbit they’re cheap to replace.
Grape has a habit of going to dog cook-outs. i’m guessing it’s for the free food. i’m wondering if Max would pick up on that habit from Grape just as she picks up on his habits?
If he does appear Friday, i would find it humorous and unexpected if he ends up doing what Grape didn’t finish =3
Oh well, Joel/King has already been flattened once this arc, which is probably enough. It’s not like he was actually being malicious.
yeah where is peanut during all this because as i recall he was allowed back in the good ol’ dogs club during the christmas arc… i bet it will be revealed in the next strip!!!
Fido let him back in afterwords remember and I kind of forgot about the Dog Biscuits think it was so long ago.
I’m sorry I miss read your comment Kytan (I wish there was a way to edit comments I know there won’t be but I wish there was)
hey it happens.
I love how Grape approaches his question
Oh yeah… she’s psychic, now I’m going to rip you to shreds
That’s our Grape.
Gotta love her.
That is a Retorical question.
i like answering retorical Q’s
Like a dolphin/
Peeked in your heart and mind/
Like a dol-ol-ol-ol-phin/
She knows your roots
are not canine
…aaaaand I’m off to bed.
Like a dolphin, huh?
“Usurp the human leaders…”
omg … now you’ve got me singing it ..arff … nice one
Oh please, Kamron should become a Musician, you’d make money that way, nice tune.
I dare not ask what is “more important”.
Sorry, I beat everyone to it about the alt text. =)
Aren’t you re-using that Gravatar, Derazey?
I thought you said you had a whole shwack of ‘em ready for use.
Oh, and: His ARMS and LEGS are more important. Notice Grape said appendages, as in plural. SO it either must be his ARMS, LEGS, EARS, or I dare not guess. D:
Let’s pray she means ears…
No, I haven’t used this avvie yet. You must be thinking of the one with WEEEGEEE!
Hm. I think I’ve seen it before, though.
…It’s kinda creepy.
It’s creepy? Fine, I’ll get an avatar of Chris Crocker.
wait whats grape doing at the good ol’ dogs cookout? wouldnt she get runout… or at least chased up a tree?
no she’ll eat there souls befor that would happe >:3
She’s been to Good ol’ Dog’s Club events before. Like Fido’s welcoming party. She said she was there because she likes dog-treats.
That and she’s gifted in the secret art of Grabbing random but effective weapons. Like a Broom, a Fryingpan, *Cough*(Baseballbat)*Cough*… ’suse me. Need water.
She’s too scary for anyone to shoo her away.
Same reason Peanut was at a Pridelands convention?
Do you mean like when she challanged “The Game”? http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/06/27/i-said-no-escape/
HAHA!!! Grape is such a great friend!!
Btw, I feel as though my comment from the previous strip had something to do with the title of this one. Could be a coincidence though…
I would ask what Grape is doing at the cookout but *re-reads ‘Fido’s Return’ arc* the comic explains itself
i lub how he just cals her “CAT”
Well it’s not like he knows a name to address her by…
So King doesn’t seem to realize that Grape is a girl, its a common mistake…
Well, it’s not his fault the females in this comic don’t have noticeable protrusions by which to identify them by. If they did, however, King would be at the perfect height to see them… but as the title says, he’s “Not Sober Enough” to even care – or notice, for that matter.
noticeable protrusions? not in this PG comic *shakes head*
I bet I could make a PG comic that had ‘em!
…There just wouldn’t be any jokes about them. (But isn’t that for the best?)
I’d read it.
I would too.
Can anyone say “ouch”? I’d be afraid if I were King…
if i were king i’d get spot the superdog to resqu me :3
He doesn’t know who that is, much less who Peanut is.
Which is amazing, as he must have overheard one of the other dogs talking about him.
When he was hiding from them and only ever talking to Fox?
stop ruining my logic >:(
Well… I don’t think Spot would help him much, considering Spot = Peanut, and King just hit on Peanut’s girlfriend.
Logic was meant to be ruined.
And I suspect that Peanut wouldn’t really take Joel/King very seriously at the moment. He strikes me as more the type to help get him home to sleep it off.
hmmm, tu che (or however u spell that french word)
Very true, Prower.
Open mouth, insert foot.
Runnig like “a bat outta hell” might be a better choice if you hack off Grape.
He’s not a bat! D:
Couldn’t King just do both? After all, dogs can run on 3 legs (just not very well, and it takes a lot of practice, I’d imagine).
“…Okay, that’s a perfectly NORMAL explanation.”?
Really? Reading minds is NORMAL?
…What’s not normal for that matter?
Since telepathy has been established as a normal ablity for dolphins, why should it be sarcasm instead of a simple statement of fact?
Wait wait wait…
Are you being sarcastic in your “sarcasm -_-” comment?
What if I was being sarcastic about the sarcastic response from King?
Therefore you sarcastic-ly criticized a sarcastic comment about the sarcastic response from King…
But… what if, refering to Rick’s comment, the response from King wasn’t sarcastic?
… Therefore a un-sarcastic response from King was sarcastic-ly criticized by me and sarcastic-ly criticized by you.
What does this all mean? I have no idea. XD
My brain short circuited at the end, but yeah good point man. XD
I understood it perfectly.
I understand it as well, but since I’m not english it’s a bit harder for me. XD
That comment made me smile nearly as much as the comic.
In other news, Grape becomes steadily more awesome as each arc progresses.
He’s not sober enough for it to seem abnormal.
You know, I’m actually surprised that King is being sarcastic in the third panel about it being a ‘normal’ explanation. I mean, King was turned into a DOG by a GIANT BLUE GRYHON… I would probably believe ANYTHING.
I think it’s actually funnier if you read it as not sarcastic
…You’re being sarcastic, right?
There’s not much sarcasm left to burn, buddy.
King used it all up before he got drunk. (yes, now I understand it was not a sugar high, he is actually drunk)
I agree with Rick. After you get turned into a dog, anything seems believable.
I agree, NO ONE would find that believable. Those silly Germans.
At least they banned Scientology.
(I need to pay more attention to read these things the first time…)
Heck, not just changing into a dog. After being changed into a dog by a shape-shifting gryphon who can teleport you around pretty much at will, a psychic Pomeranian is downright normal in comparison.
While that;s a quick and simple resolution to King’s questions, “Oh, OK, That’s a perfectly normal explanation” does weigh fairly heavily on the “psychic powers aren’t too unusual” side of things. World background is always interesting.
Or it’s part of “Not Sober Enough”.
i just noticed the ALT txt on the last panal “SNKT” scary wut alt txt can do
Very cute Grape gets the Wolverine comic sound effect when she pops her claws out. SNIKT!
alt tip pushing the PG limit much?
oh! peshaw!!! that’s nonsens
Nah, not really.
I will grant you it does look like it’s within easy reach of said limit, though.
Of course, she could mean his head, too.
It could mean, rather, since there’s nothing making it obvious that particular bit of metatext is from Grape.
And yes, I realize heads don’t really count as “appendages”…
Oh, I dunno. If you’re a Pierson’s Puppeteer, heads do. Count as appendages, I mean. But then, they have their brains in their body, and use their two heads like hands. Niven FTW.
Having “pet” in the name doesn’t necessarily make them relevant comparison points…
I was about to point out that the head is not an appendage.
Arms, legs, …
NOT THE EARS!
Or the Toes or Fingers. Those’d count.
Yeah, Firewing, they would.
I keep wondering how many of you have watched any PG movies lately. :/
I watched Ghost Dad yesterday. Bill Cosby = Laughter.
It’s only pushing PG if you MAKE it push.
eheheh KINGsize fail, poor peanut
Savior? Or saver?
Either way, it’s true. :3
forgot how to spell it
Run, King, run! Lol, well at least it wasn’t Peanut he said that to…actually I dunno about this I know Peanut is a lot less rough around the edges than Grape, but it’d still be bad to have told you were hitting on a girl to the very guy she’s dating.
i’m thinkin if it were peanut he’d cause a scene close to what he did in the imaginate too arc…
what is with all the king avi’s?
In more ways than one
hey, if he was still a human, that would be creepy. Now that he’s a dog…
I don’t care
I must admit, King is quite the character.
Plus he’s a corgi. And as Cowboy Bebop has already shown, gorgis are awesome. (I THINK he’s a corgi…right?)
‘Cause he’s a party-hard playboy of a pup.
also hes batman
So? I’m Superman.
Well, I’ma Scatman.
-Scatman music plays-
Grape is just messing with him, right?
Well, with panel four at least…
Peanut isn’t psychotic like Bino or Tiger…
sasha’s only a little psychotic
She wrote a song about it in D minor.
that songs actually on u tube!!! :3
here’s de song
Not many people can write a whole song and only be a “little” psycho.
peeshaaw!!! i can
Glad you see my point ya “little psycho”. (T_T)
Hey! Don’t call him little!
It makes him feel small!
WHO ARE YOU CALLING A LITTLE BRAT YOU CAN”T SEE WITH OUT SQUINTING YOUR EYES!!!!!
i feel so loved now :]
I was just quoting.
So dolphins are psychics for real?
Perfectly normal explanation, right…
lol! I wondered how/when King would meet Grape, Priceless moment!
i give it till tomorow till somewon makes an avie of it
wait till he meets peanut… there would probably be some awkwardness. but seriously i predict either peanut will be in the next one and completely oblivious to why king is in an ironlung or fox will come in and try to save king… either way it will be fun!
Well, with all the death threats, and the finding-out-of-his-secrets, King’s gotta be sober now. Right? Or, at least a little more tight lipped as far as those things go.
Aaaaaaand now Rick has to go back to the figurative drawing board to see how he can outsmart you.
Seriously, it’s like we just make his job harder or something
Grape didn’t mention Peanut’s name. I reckon Rick could get another strip about King meeting Peanut and brain-crashing when he realizes Peanut is “Grape’s best friend”.
It could have been worse, Grape could have been replaced with Peanut in this scene…
Would have been safer.
On the other hand maybe not, he might have asked “what kind of weird things?” He’s easily distracted.
On the gripping hand, he’s easily distracted.
plus, Peanut has a tendancy to be easily distracted.
What you say?
well id expect it to be similar to what he did near the end of imaginate too… either that or king should expect a falcon punch the face.
*in yawny voice* i is tired so i gonna sleep bye ppls
King called Tarot ‘beautiful’. Yay!
The dog side is powerful in this one!
Get him biscuits!
but he already HAS gravy!
Fox: Don’t remind me *shudders*
Eh, one can view someone as beautiful without having a personal attraction to them. I’ve seen RL people refer to some animals as beautiful without them having even the slightest thought about anything even remotely romantic.
King was hitting on her. His own words.
It helps that they’re roughly the same size
Of course he was hitting on Sasha and Daisy as well.
And Grape solves yet another problem with violence… Almost…
There is no problem that can’t be solved by violence!
And if violence doesn’t solve the problem, an insufficient amount of violence was used.
Or you ended up taking out all the baddies but the boss. Or you missed a baddie. Or you missed the key that unlocks the door. Or you missed the door that you use the key on. Or you missed the hidden switch that unlocks the pathway to the key that unlocks the hidden door that is revealed by another switch that must be hit after the first one, or else you’ll have to start all over again! D:
No, that’s just misdirected violence. The correct application of kinetic energy anywhere will do anything, considering that energy is defined as the capacity to do work
Violence is energy lol
well if violence is energy than grapes energy must be
and kings is negative 2 at the moment
Enty, I shall quote you on that, soon.
y’know, an educated way to say ‘limbs’.
And other anatomical parts…
that tend to go as far away from the body as possible (you know, like arms, legs, that sort of thing).
Or Ears, Toes, and Fingers.
Ohh okay. :3
King: Fox what does the scouter say about her power level?
Fox : IT’S OVER 9000!!!!!!!!
King: What 9000????
what??? someone had to do it
Gah! THESE COMMENTS KEEP HAPPENING!
Not to 50!!!
Graaaaape! Haven’t seen her in a while. ^.^
THE ALT TEXT. I spilled my drink.
If I had had a drink, It would have been blown through my nose. Mainly because Grape would have no qualms about doing such a thing.
I do hope there’s a reason other than plot induced stupidity or rule of funny why King didn’t just say “hey, I didn’t know she had a boyfriend”. It’s not like Grape had any expectation of him knowing that in advance, considering he didn’t even know her name.
(As a cat person, though, Grape’s reaction doesn’t puzzle me at all. )
It’s Grape we’re talking about. I don’t think she cares either way. And he can see that with the way she gets her claws out.
He doesn’t need plot-induced stupidity.
The plot so far is getting King familiar with everyone. but as the plot pointed out so far, King can be too honest at the wrong times and certainly too easily over the limits with orange soda >.>
so basically, he seems to end up causing his own situations i find, humorously.
I know nobody will probably read a comment at the way bottom, but still.
I think King should talk to Grape, explain that he didn’t know she was seeing anyone,he had too much soda and he recently had a concussion.I think they should be friends, seriously,more chance’s to be scared by Tarot, possibly have Peanut perceive him as a threat.
And why not have the cynics be friends?
It’s likely that won’t happen for some time. He might talk to Peanut, but if he remembers what Grape said, he’s likely to avod her.
Poor King. Hope his cover isn’t blown. He’s got a good thing goin’.
they think he’s drunk.
And Tarot never burnt his cover.
I hope he gets that ‘walky’ with Sasha, tho.
Tuesday. Write it on the calendar so you don’t forget later, when you’re sober (minus the hangover, of course!)
King and Sasha!
You know you’re a bad *** when your claws make wolverine sound effects.
Grape’s been Bad*** Since before her claws made wolverine sound effects. Its just increasing her Bad***ness to over 150%.
I would have Quoted vegeta, But i think he’s Vegan. I dont like Vegans.
Haha, he just HAD to admit he was hitting on someone’s girlfriend to that someone’s sister. Even if it was unwittingly. xD
well to his defense the only people there he already knew were bino sasha and fox
…And Fido… And the rest of the K-9 squad… And Spo. But I don’t think he counts here.
Looks like Grape is fighting yet another battle for Peanut I see.
I wonder if Grape picks up what he says, about that being perfectly normal? I also wonder if She will start picking on him now xD To protect Peanut and too see if his owner Pete is who she thinks he is xD
Nod. She’s already suspicious about Pete.
Quite possible – but I’m still wondering if it is indeed perfectly normal. With at least one entire species of telepaths around – and possibly all the cetacea, and perhaps seals and sea lions – it could easily be just “every species has a few” or “it usually just takes a lot of special training” or some such. After all, Grape may have found it weird, but Max didn’t seem especially disturbed once it was pointed out that Tarot was psychic – and Grape’s experiences are limited. She’s still quite young.
Grape defending Peanut.
Aww, sweet violent Grapey!
What other grapey is there?
You know.. the Jelly type. Or wine. Maybe juice.
Even better, The soda Type.
ah, the soda type…*opens can*
I wonder when it will occur to Grape that Tarot said something that unnerved King, meaning that there’s some strange hidden fact about King that King wants to keep hidden… and that King’s owner is a strange guy named Pete…
Grape probably won’t notice, cuz stuff like that may happen 2 Tarot all the time.
Random Dog: “hey sweetie, wana hang out?”
Tarot: “No, I don’t date retired garbage-dump-guard dogs.”
Random Dog: “But…How could you know that? I’m new to the neighborhood, I HAVENT TOLD ANYONE!?!”
^ Just as an example, nothing against garbage-dump-guard dogs.
Grape’s seen Tarot do MUCH weirder and unnerving stuff than merely reveal hidden secrets.
So… he’s not sober enough for the “I’ve got a date with a dog” moment.
Or else he’s really gone native.
I highly doubt he has any real intent of going out with Sasha on “Tuesday instead.” That’s just Sasha living up to her “flavor of the week” status.
You think he’d stand up Sasha? That’d be mean!
Probably not, although he may just be hoping to make some more friends.
Most likely, Sasha will come ove and be like “Hi King, ready for our walkies?”
And he’ll say “Wait what?”
I really hope he’s gone Native.
He’s sobered up enough to put his collar back on at least.
Not as good, but at least it lets other pets know he’s not a stray.
well he had de collar on his shoulder in the last page
So I guess we can assume that by dog standards Tarot is recogniced as ‘beautiful’, or at least she is that to a drunk welsh corgi who was formerly human and has been a dog for about six months.
Also, Violent Grape = Love
I see how you think that about Grape, KnifeToYourFace. XD
Am I missing something? Why wouldn’t King want others to know? Especially a psychic? I thought he wanted to change back?
“Hey guys I’m totally the guy who helped kidnap Fox!”
Somehow I’m not sure that would sit very well with his being surrounded by the same police dogs who participated in his arrest to begin with…
Not like he has to reveal that kidnapped bit
Tarot might, though. Knowing the consequences, however, she might not. She’s not “Sort of a jerk” like pete.
It would be gratuitously mean – unless, perhaps, she thinks it would be good for him, or knows that those few who would believe it would forgive him, or just forgets…
women king met that night
grape cccc combo breaker
Grape, Grape, Graaaaaaaape!
(Its gonna be her SSBB Chant.)
She’d be a perfect brawler!
Im back to the old avi.
Can’t blame him,
all the soda would go 2 your bladder if you were facing those claws.
i woulda used a smoke bomb ;D
I woulda used Anti-Cat Spray! or maybe a mouse toy filled with catnip?
Look! An obvious distraction!
Where? I don’t see any distraction…
King doesn’t think quick like Florence though.
That was on a t-shirt at the “Emergency Exit Comics” store. I’m not sure if they still have it, but probably.
King totally needs some patented blue smoke.
Is the alt text really an innuendo? :3
If you have a dirty mind, EVERYTHING is an innuendo.
In-you-en… doh, never mind…
Don’ worry Homer we still like ya. XD
I’m a ferret, not a Simpson. I’m not distracted by donuts. I’m distracted by shinies, and small tasty mammals. Oooh, mice…
“The Joy of Snacks”
Kay sorry my mistake. XD
BTW what’s Innuendo again? I had to look it up once already cuz of VGcats, but still couldn’t get what it meant. XP
I believe an innuendo is something that’s made to sound dirty.
Or an invitation to do/think something dirty.
I get invited all the time XD
See also, “double-entendre”.
Aha cool, thx all.
hehehe, it really starts to get interesting, when will they all find out and how will they react…
I guess Pete saw it coming and perhaps that’s the reason why he wanted him to stay,
because I think there will come some problems with this
Or Pete set this up so King would give himself a concussion.
And get himself drunk…and start “going native”…and get the catnip beat out of him by Grape.
Certainly, each strip looks more clear that Pete wanted him to stay at home to avoid all these problems with another pets. Poor King.
Or what if Pete didn’t want King to go to the party because he knew King would run into the apparently only person who knows for sure what Pete actually is, and what he’s doing?
It may be a stretch, I’ll grant you, but I have difficulty seeing where King getting embarrassed by drunken flirting and its consequences would have any negative effect on Pete’s plans.
No, Pete forsaw all of this, even made him NOT go to make him have a concussion SO he’d get a drink with Fox, thusly making him Drunk/sugar high, So he’d eventually hit on Tarot, Tarot revealing his secret, And him flipping out.
Also to have the soda go to his bladder, Courtesy of Grape.
Ah, the old Xanatos Gambit.
so .. who here thinks king will get neutered lol
is anybody in the Housepets universe neutered?
but no, i don’t think Pete is that mean…
That’s something that’s just not talked about.
I think King would have fought that, if that was one of his vet appointments.
I don’t think that it would be as necessary in the Housepets universe. We’ve already demonstrated that animals demonstrate human-level intelligence. It can be safely assumed that in lieu of getting fixed, the owners would instead have a “birds and the bees” chat with their pet… Which could possibly get quite awkward.
Especially when they’re birds.
That conversation would probably sting!
All “Birds and bees” talks are awkward lol
Also, why do they call it the “Birds and the Bees” when the reproductive systems of the two animals are not the same as ours? Last time I checked, birds lay eggs and bees lay eggs.
Thats the point, Its explaining the Difference.
i wonder if King really thought that Tarot was beautiful or if it was the soda talking (since King was drunk).
May I vote for the soda? Sorry. XP
>8D <– Eyelazoring you.
I vote it was not the soda, He is just about to become sober, i have a feeling..
Oh, Grape, how we love thee! X3 (And she REALLY must like dog treats–she’s at a LOT of dog gatherings…)
she also likes peanut :3
Poor King. He never gets a break.
Poor King… certainly, with the exception of Fox and Sasha, he doesn’t fit very well between the other pets… It’s a dog life your life, King!
AAAHHH DARN IT!!! What bad timing for a power outage, I couldn’t see the awesome Grape carnage for almost a day… well it’s not realy happening yet, but still. XD
Beautiful? Now realy?! (She is cute don’ worry ppl that’s not my prob. :p) Not sure this’ll end well for me, but hey if the story stays great then I can’t complain. (Although refering to Tarot as dog and not as girl may mean somethin.) X3
Too long since we saw Grape and again she’s at her best manners as always… yeah those awesome manners of hers of course. X3
So… would this situation have gone better, or worse, had King tried to hit on Grape?
I can totally see that happening.
I want this NAO
I think he almost does xD if you noticed, or at least to me with the way I read it, King pauses alittle King pauses at Grape and calls her “Cat” In a kinda way that to me, seems like he was thinking of something different but was sober enough “not” to say it xD
I really want to see that happening!
King: You know, you’re really hot. I like you, cat. Wanna go walkies with me?
Grape: Better idea, you go for walkies alone, and I don’t rip your face off.
You have Mastered the Grape Personification Sequence.
+1 to Battle Mastery.
[insert cheesy power up music here]
I like how you’ve made one of the two main protagonists interact with the protagonist of this arc. I’m looking forward to interaction between him and Peanut (love triangle aside).
we’ve never had King interact with either of the 2 main characters B4 this.
king’s to do list after he met grape:
[ ] go west
[ ] change name
[ ] dye fur
[ ] be adopted by a happy family with one child.
grape will still find cause she’s like a ninja!
I thought that she hired a ninja.
(-:insert japanese term for unhonorable suicide here:-)
that would be a “Musasabi”
and yes thats a japanese word,
also anyone knows what that word is ill give you a kookie
Sounds a bit like “Wasabi”, but I doubt it would be found in a restaurant.
Musasabi Roll lol
heh but ill tell ya what it means=p
Musasabi means Flying Squirrel in japanese
Can I have some mususabi musubi?
Good to see grape caring for peanut’s relationship with tarot. (1st comment i made, alright!)
King MAY wanna lay low for a bit…
Fun fact: Dogs can’t see green!
really!?! I alaways thought they were just completely color blind :/
I believe dogs can see some shades of green and yellow.
That’s cats. And also cats can see blue.
But in the Housepets! Universe, as well as mine, Pets can see the entire spectrum of colours.
Is that canon?
Yes. To quote the author:
“Animals do NOT normally see in grayscale, this is a misconception: they have color cones in their eyes, but usually just two as opposed to the three for humans. Because for various reasons I need my pets to be able to see all colors, they are not fully colorblind but are color-deficient, so dogs will see reds in a much less saturated form.”
Can find amazing stuff on them forums, ya know. That statement IS pretty dang old, though.
so there handicaped
run king run
I love how Joel was (in my opinion) the most hated character, but as soon as he was turned into a dog, POOF he becomes King, just about the most beloved character in the whole comic.
And, I have to admit, I am guilty of favoring King just as much as the next person. =)
Joel wasn’t ever the most hated character. Fatty was.
Joel was the in-over-his-head sympathetic sidekick.
Kind of like the kidnappers in “The Crown Jewels”.
come 2 think it, Ur right.
He wasn’t the most hated character,
point is it’s interesting how a human character has gone from not really cared about, 2
“OMGosh! He’s so cute!!!”
Plpl arn’t thinking about him as the person he is,
but as the dog he looks like.
He was the “Aww, I feel so bad for him!” Human. Then he was turned into a dog and now he’s “Aww, why couldn’t that be me?!” Dog. Also “Aww, he’s so cute! and cuddly! and I just want to squeeze him till he breaks”
“I will hug him and squeeze him and love him and pet him, and I will call him George.”
If there are people on this board who want King’s life I’d really want to know why? Much of the character’s humor comes from him being the proverbial “fish out of water” but what we’ve seen of his home life with Pete as his owner is not exactly conditions most people would want to live under. He’s treated more like a real dog than any other character.
On the other hand at being King is giving Joel a shot at redemption. He basically made a Heel Face Turn right after the transformation. We probably all have some transgressions we’d like to atone for but usually volunteer work and helping others are better ways than altering someone’s genetic material beyond all recognition (Even Joel’s eyes changed color from brown to blue!).
Personally I really don’t see where “he’s cuter” than the other Housepets characters. With the brightly colored and clean designs Rick uses all the characters are pretty cute. Even Rex and he’s a bulldog.
Yeh, he doesn’t even get a swishy tail out of the deal.
yer point? :/
but yeah, most characters in this comic are cute, probably part of what makes it so popular…
wheres Aerix he or she (not sure witch) hasn’t been comenting lately
hes on to us……RUN
Aerix is a guy. Also… well, that’s all I got XD
I thought it was a girl…I hugged him with my collar off! Agh!
yah stuff like that happens when drunk off soda
Ya know, I think Bino spiked the soda….just sayin.
aaawww is someone sad cause they didn’t get a hug * opens arms*
I noticed that too. Clueless on this end.
Wait i thought it was the Eye of Horus
Eye of Horus = Eye of Ra
Both names can be used for it. Look up Eye of Ra on Wikipedia. It’ll pull up Eye of Horus.
I see… Thanks for the info.
ugggh I’m kiling my self *I keed I keed* is only a pun on how my name is suspense
Fox said nothing would get in the way of kings good time… he didnt anticipate grape being there! XD
Lies. He probably knew about Grape, but probably not of Tarot, and probably doesn’t know of her power? Only ones to seem to know about it is Peanut and Grape it seems?
He didn’t anticipate King getting plastered on a single can of orange soda either.
I absolutly love how his Bump’s bandages remind me of a Riceball. And how you make these comics, Rick.
Darn. He was finally getting somewhere. With everyone but Pete. But Pete’s Pete.
well i finnaly got my avatar up=p
any one likes it?, made it my self

MUST SEE NEW COMIC! i’ll have to go to mars because today would be yesterday there.
since when do dogs get drunk on soda is drunk at all.
Im tellin ya Bino spicked tha soda>_>
hurry up time, go faster DX
King doesn’t deserve all this abuse!
Agreed. He needs a hug.
Keep digging King, keep digging… I think that hole can go a little deeper…
I think I missed something at the end…
