    Egotist

    • Alex M.

      Two things:
      1)Lol i never used Limewire lol.
      2)Good join the club of dead by cuteness.

      • Rick Griffin

        Okay whatever is happening here I would really prefer if the initial comments to my comic made sense

        • dalonewolf25

          I’m sorry Rick. I’ll never post first again.

          • Elwood Blutarsky

            I’m pretty sure he was refering to that post about Limewire. That Egotist post actually is relevant to the strip given Kevin sure seems to be one in this strip.

          • Alex M.

            That’s my bad,sorry if i go off the point of the comic.
            I won’t repeat it again.
            That’s why is really useful the *edit* and *eliminate* options.

          • Frank

            Uh… what post about Limewire?

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            da replai 2 dalonewolf

          • Frank

            The confusion grows: I thought what Elwood was saying was that Alex M. had been referring to “that post” about Limewire, not Rick referring to Alex’s post.

          • dalonewolf25

            well, the limewire thing comes from the link on my username (not anymore), and the mentioning of death came from here a few moments from this comment:
            http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/09/29/dont-you-wish-you-could-read-like-me/comment-page-1/#comment-47318
            And yeah, Elwood was responding to me telling me that my egotist comment is somewhat relative to the comment, which is what I truly thought of Kevin when I read the strip at the time. And that Alex M. had been referring to these things while the strip was still 2 minutes old. I hope this clears your mind a little. Let’s not speak of this again.

          • dalonewolf25

            *comic strip instead of comment in the last usage.
            This is why we need an edit/delete function, however, we can’t have one because then we won’t have gravatars anymore!!

          • Hypergenesis

            Actually, you can have and edit/delete function and still have Gravatar.

            All you need to do is achieve moderator status. . .

            (Completely achievable right?)

          • Buckdida

            Takes a lot of work, but, yeah, it is achievable. :P

        • Alex M.

          Just founded this on the net.
          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxMa-rlZA58
          Really good if you ask me.

          • Frank

            Wait, you’re the founder of that?

          • Alex M.

            Found from the verb find.
            Nope,just looking on the net found that.
            Still having problems with past tense -..-!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Yes… yes…

            Perfect…

            *drool*

          • Argent Stonecutter

            AUGH! That’s the new Rickroll!

          • Buckdida

            The animation and such was made by a member of the forums named “Tails++”

            The instrumental backing song is called “-Jumper-” and is made by Waterflame. (look it up on Newgrounds.)

            The actual lyrics and singing?

            That was me.

            So what should I go ferret hunting with, hmm? The shotgun, or the assault rifle? :P

          • Alex M.

            Cool,Great song,when i first found it i just kepping playing it over and over and over.
            Ahh Newgrounds,the heaven of music :D
            Oh,oh,Ferret Hunt!

          • dalonewolf25

            I call dibs on the blue haired one and glasses!

          • dalonewolf25

            Avie, *cue meme voice* YOU MUST DIE!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Traditionally “ferret hunting” involves setting nets over the openings of rabbit warrens and sending a ferret into one of the holes. Don’t care for it much, it messes up my fur and it’s too easy to lose my glasses.

          • dalonewolf25

            Ah, but this is modern ferret hunting, so…yeah…and your glasses are leg-less i see…

          • Frank

            They stay on by the laws of cartoon physics!
            … unfortunately, I can’t seem to find the comment where that was originally said.

          • Silver Dragon ordinence

            good point, with all of these random comments floating around, this place is like one of those daytime television shows were absolutely nothing is organized; it just blurts out random things that no one on any of those pay-per-view shows doesn’t want to hear.

            I am talking about the show about that guy that comes out of that room and sits on a comfy chair whilst random people come in and talk about how unfortunate they are and how they needed professional help and all that jazz about being totally neglected in this “futuristic” tomorrow-land that has changed so much since when they where young. You know what I mean?

          • Silver Dragon ordinence

            Also it was funny. and I was bored.

            TEEHEE!! X3

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I mentioned the glasses-held-on-by-cartoon-physics before? Cool! I have continuity!

      • dalonewolf25

        Noooooo
        dalonewolf25 x1
        Don’t try to kill me again.
        And I don’t think protein shakes are really good for you, however, it also depends on how you use them

    No comment

    • notthatlol

      IT BURNSSSSS WITH THE PAAAAIIIN OF A THOUSSSSAND SSSSSUNSSSS!

    • Alex M.

      Ok, Now after reading and analizing the comic i must say,
      That are really big muscles for a dog,it make him look well…
      strange.

      • Ryufire

        That’s because he’s the “beast”!

        • Alex M.

          He isn’t a K9 dog anymore.
          He’s now a K9 Tackle Beast Unit.

          • Frank

            So, he’s being split into several dogs?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Schrodinger’s Rottie?

          • Frank

            If that’s anything like an Exploding Ninja, I think I’ll pass

          • Alex M.

            He is a K9 unit himself.

          • Frank

            A “unit” usually consists of several people. They attack together, are ordered together… as a unit

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I thought it was a single dwelling in a multi-family residence.

          • Frank

            Police context, housing context… still several people.

          • Alex M.

            Yes, i know what a unit is.
            Just saying he is now a one-man(dog) unit.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I thought a unit was the dimension of a physical value, like grams or inches.

          • Frank

            But… uh… the… gah!

            http://instantrimshot.com/classic/?sound=rimshot

            There!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Humor evolved in the Facetious era. Before that life-forms just stood around talking about the weather, which is why they never evolved civilization. Civilization exists because it gives life forms more things to make jokes about.

          • Alex M.

            At this point, i don’t know,if this is funny :D
            Or i don’t get it D:

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It’s only funny if you get it. Otherwise it’s like the boring bits in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy where the Book is waffling on about fried eggs and underarm deodorant.

      • gagi

        I find it sad that you have to comment on the comic first and then read it. Isn’t the whole point of the comment section for the comments about the comic :) hehe

        • Alex M.

          Don’t blame me,that was my first oppinion about Kevin action.

          • Jakkal

            Well, yes, we actually blame you, for trying being a “first” guy… because it’s lame

    • Lupus

      Leaving a comment saying “No comment”? Surely you should just leave no comment.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Pff. That would imply logic.

      • Alex M.

        Please refer to the reply to gagi.
        Thanks.

  3. Mr.Zero

    Raise of hands, who would buy one!

    • dalonewolf25

      In the negative dimension, my hand is raised. However, in our dimension, it is not.

    • IceKitsune

      *raises hand* I would totally buy one right away.

    • Valerio

      MEMEMEMEMEMEMEMEME!!! :D :D

    • Inu225

      I raise my foot in agreement of disagreeing.
      …Or because I want to be like Captain Morgan.

      • HonorèDerazey

        Hm, I half expected you to give thumbs up because that’s how you usually give approval, based on my observations of your previous comments.

        BTW, hehe.

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          inu, u cood put ur big toe up :3

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Must… Resist…

          LINK MAH BOI!!

          • HonorèDerazey

            PEACE IS WHAT ALL TRUE WARRIORS STRIVE FOR!

            BTW, I made a “Mah boi” version of Nick from Left 4 Dead 2 saying, “Mah boi, this med kit is what all true warriors strive for!” Unfortunately, my outdated PC crashed; I was going to put it as my avatar. =(

          • HonorèDerazey

            Also:

            I.T.T., your avatar = win

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I’m sorry about your PC. I hope you make backups now.

          • HonorèDerazey

            Yeah, they said it couldn’t be repaired. On the bright side, me being the pyromaniac I am, my parents let me burn it; but I accidentally breathed in some of the fumes.

            Mmm, cancer.

        • Inu225

          Well that’s not entirely true.
          A few weeks ago I gave someone a gold star
          http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/09/24/the-end-result-of-being-cultured/#comment-46348
          Your going to have to find an “approval conversion chart” to understand the currency of a “Gold Star” vs. “Raised Foot”.

    • Frank

      Uh, oh. Rick, looks like now you’re going to have to actually make it!

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      ai think ai wood :3

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        *raises paw*

    • JB

      Maybe. If only there was a housepets calendar too.

  4. lightwolf21

    Wow, he really buffed up. O_o

    • Alex M.

      Wait,that are muscles!?.
      I was thinking it was a jacket.O_O

    • Pseudo Faux

      I think he’s smuggling cantaloupes under his skin in his spare time >.=.>

    • Hypergenesis

      Well I must say Rick, you proved your point very well.

      Why the sudden exaggeration of the muscles though? It makes him look. . nyuguh, freaky. Wouldn’t the model you had with the Iron Artist been a better choice?

      • ToonTorment

        He was a bit more muscular in this strip, too, though.

        http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/08/25/actually-nevermind/

        And though I admit I am biased, to me he doesn’t seem to have much more definition/mass than Miles has always had.

        • Hypergenesis

          Kevin was buff in that strip, in this strip it’s like he’s in steroids for that bulge to be there even when he’s relaxed.

          You could be biased, then again you could be unbiased. Miles is a big character as well so I think that a problem would only arise if he was suddenly drawn lean. Unless of course it was a crippling sickness that persisted for some time.

          • Naylorfan90

            Well, Miles is a wolf, so he’d naturally be bigger than most regular dogs. What kinda breed is Kevin supposed to be?

          • Dena

            Kevin is a doberman.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Even in this one, Miles doesn’t look like he had new muscles surgically implanted into his body for the sole purpose of being SUPAH MAHSSLE MAHN!!

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Oh, that was supposed to be in [arnie voice]~[/arnie voice]

          • Leinad

            you know, i think we got it anyway…

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I know, but sometimes I just enjoy being…

            CAPTAIN OBVIOUS!!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I thought you were Bat-Ferret.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Umm…

            Look! A demonic duck of some sort!

            *runs*

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            *gasp* rally were !?! :0

          • dalonewolf25

            *goonish shive reference by the way

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            *high five!*

          • dalonewolf25

            Yeah! *high fives back*

  5. IceKitsune

    lol Kevin is so self absorbed

  6. rWolf1991

    I’d Buy one!!!

    • Eeveon

      I second this. ;)

    • Hypergenesis

      Just one???
      Vile-hearted fiend!
      Think of the children!
      Think of the starving!
      Think of those who can afford to live in affordable middle-class housing!
      Think of the sickly!
      Think of the weak and oppressed!
      Think of the smile Ralph could have when they sell out!

      (The intoxicated being that said the statement cannot be held for hypocrisy.)
      [Also, the intoxicated being will only buy one as well.]

    • Valerio

      only one…pfft

  7. Enty

    Well sure, it may be a calendar, but is it a tackle-calendar?

  8. Ryufire

    I’d buy one too. Its for a good cause right XD

    • Frank

      The Spot (superdog) puppy orphanage!

      • dalonewolf25

        However, if it existed, then Peanut would get caught, wouldn’t you think?

        • Hypergenesis

          Only if he suddenly decided to bleach himself white and started wearing a flappy red cape to match the body of atlas he builds.

          But that’s not going to happen because he got loving parents.

          • dalonewolf25

            True. I don’t think they would want another Kevin, i guess…

  9. Hypergenesis

    Is it just me or is he dancing at the calendar page he was so proud of?

    • notthatlol

      HIS MASSIVE BICEPS.

      • Hypergenesis

        Of course it’s going to be undeniable with that name, but what the heck!

        WOW! You can do that by flexing!?

  10. Thegamist

    And I thought daisy was stupid,…

    • Hypergenesis

      If you think about it, why did they leave Kevin t o do the work himself? Aren’t they afraid of the lawsuits if Kevin made. . .
      A tackle greeting on the way?
      A tackle submission in the printing firm?
      A tackle payment with the cashier?
      A tackle(ing) calendar?

      • Frank

        Uh, probably because he was the only one who knew how to work… whatever computer program they used to put this together? I mean, that’s usually how we do it, isn’t it?

        Also, is a A tackle(ing) calendar a calendar you can tackle or a calendar that tackles you?

        • Hypergenesis

          Well I don’t want to sound like I’m making fun of Kevin’s intellect, but I don’t think the program’s “Calendar Tackler”. It would not be unreasonable to believe that there would be others more qualified to operate the program than Kevin. On the other hand, Rex does bake cookies so I think you make a point.

          I had in mind a calendar that, once a day, “tackles” anyone unfortunate enough to be in front of it when a new day comes, and by new day I mean the time of the day when you look at the calendar, and unfortunate as an infrared sensor that detects if someone is in front of it. It tackles the person (or pet) with a 2 pound page, (which actually makes the calendar weight 712 [714 on a leap year] pounds. Great for working out no?)

          So I have to say a calendar that tackles you (though not specifically YOU.)

          • thegamist

            that sounds like a fun calendar to give to your biggest rival
            happy b-day Frank! owww how NOT sweet of y… *TOOMP*

          • thegamist

            sorry Frank
            1st name that came up

      • thegamist

        I guess not

  11. Vv45689

    PHHHTTTTT HA!

  12. Inu225

    Well I must say Kevin’s body, compared to his previous appearance, has now officially become a tank. Now I’m afraid of getting tackled by him. XP

    • Hypergenesis

      I don’t think he can tackle anymore.
      The proper term would be bulldozing already, crashing could be used as well but it’s going to be like crashing into a wall of solid Vanadium.

      • Inu225

        Tackling, bulldozing, crashing.
        Either way it’s going to hurt…
        … really really bad.

        • Rocket Knight boy

          so……it’s a bad thing that i was going to ask for a hug?…oh..no no! KEVIN WIAT NAAAAAH!!

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            AI WILL PROTECT YAH ROCKET!!! *tackles kevin*
            dun wrry ur safe naow -._.-

          • Rocket Knight boy

            Thanks furreh! you saved me from a crunchy demise, i would give you a cookie but……i got nervous and threw it in a volcano…um…i stil have the reciept though!

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            awesome mabeh we can get ur money back cuz the cookies weren’t lava-proof even do it sayz raight here on de package dat dey r ^-^

      • Frank

        “Thrashing” works too

        • Hypergenesis

          Thrashing would mean multiple hits so unless Kevin was working on a secret takedown, I don’t think thrashing is suitable.

          Oh, also if he was practicing a special technique, I’m sure it’s a killer blow and we know the police don’t intentionally kill people, that’s the secret police’s job (They do it in secret. [Secrets spread like wild fire though. . .])

  13. Hypergenesis

    Also, as commented in the last comic, Ralph also looks very malnourished unmaintained.

    I can’t say the same for Ralph though, well maybe I can say unmaintained would fit him perfectly too.

    • Frank

      You can’t say the same for Ralph… as what you commented about Ralph?

      • Hypergenesis

        Never noticed this was a question to me. . . (Haha, I fail)

        I was first saying I can’t say Ralph was unmaintained since I used the word to term Kevin’s overly done bodybuilding, as in his owner failing to maintain him in his formerly current build (without the creepy muscle), but at the last moment I realized no one stays the meaning of a term used to the next term used especially if the term can be used very fuzzily. So I decided to use the same word as I disliked the term “malnourished” (which can either mean too fat or too this as well as it just says wrong nourishment) since it would be a more exaggerated term then unmaintained.

  14. Duskyo

    WAY TO GO, KEV!
    I WANT ONE! … No seriously, Rick. I want a Kevin calender!

    • Hypergenesis

      Yay! Same Avieee. . .

      You have to wait for the fundraiser event before you can get one : [
      Let’s just write your name down on the reservations list. . . Ah whoops, one moment. Just let me grab a new ledger to write your name in. . .

  15. dalonewolf25

    A gym partner of mines, he acts like this. He starts focusing conversations on his abs and how they should look better. He even takes pictures of himself before and after, and it seems like it’s all he speaks about is this radical change from other things to pure health and workouts.

  16. Fuzzypaws

    So the big question – is he vain, or just oblivious!

    • Valerio

      they don’t mutually exclude

    • Inu225

      Perhaps he’s obliviously vain.

    • ToonTorment

      The answer to that is- “yes!”

  17. Hypergenesis

    By the way, DOG FANCY? Isn’t Pet Fancy the (Blurred) for pets? Does that mean Dog Fancy is (Blurrr) for dogs?

    Oh Ralph, what will your father say?

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      “A shepherd reading Dog Fancy, what you think you’re Bolt now?”

      It’s probably the same Dog Fancy it is here, general interest regarding living with a dog.

  18. xhunterko

    No, he’s just buying a lot of calenders. Poor Kevin.

    • Root

      I have to say, you are rocking a pretty classy icon there. :D

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I agree. And Gravatar seems to have broken for me so I can’t agree in full Dawn Chapel style.

        • xhunterko

          Silly gravatar. It’s not broken for me. The last time I had trouble was I was putting the + on the side After the @, not before.

  19. Valerio

    I want to buy a Kevin calendar and Kevin plushie toy! :D

    • rWolf1991

      i’d second the last part!

      • Alex M.

        Ídem.

    • Ryufire

      A Peanut/Grape, King Calendar and plushie! :-)

      • Valerio

        hey, no fair! That’s be the gifts from heaven, no outranking police charity!
        (*saves money*)

        • Ryufire

          (*sighs in defeat*) Ah poo. you win -_- (*saves money also*)

          • Hypergenesis

            What great timing to start saving!
            Yesterday was payday right? Now you can have a contest on who can spend less.

            The prize/reward?
            More Kevin calendar to buy with the money you saved!

    • Frank

      Rick, take notes!

  20. Valerio

    LOL, Kevin makes me think of Road Rovers’ Blitz :P

    • IceKitsune

      You know what Val he kind of does a bit buffer but he does remind me of Blitz.

      • ToonTorment

        No, I think they’re about equally buff for their sizes / styles.

        • Valerio

          I was talking about their vanity streak ;)

          • ToonTorment

            There’s no doubt about that, but IceKitsune said “a bit buffer” :-)

    • ToonTorment

      Doberman, obsessive compulsive, security / law enforcement professional, red/amber eyes, buff, vain, clueless . . . no wonder I love them both. ;-P

    • Salenstormwing

      I was thinking the SAME THING!

    So is Dog Fancy like People for them?

  22. A common pet.

    Well… I want one too.

  23. Valerio

    And then there should be a ‘Kiss for $1′ for Ralph, and a ‘Win a Date with Fido’ auction.
    Can you spell ‘millions’? :D

    • Hypergenesis

      Shouldn’t that be the other way around? As Ralph would be more pleased for a one-shot deal and Fido would be less like “cheating”.

      • Valerio

        yes, but the image of the lady doggies starting world war three to win the auction is way funnier than a line long to the nearest coastline…

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          ai wood be de winner XD

  24. Hypergenesis

    Surprised no one brought it up yet, but was Ralph standing while reading his magazine?

    His height didn’t change from holding the magazine, to grabbing a calendar, to staring at the calendar, to scolding Ralph.

    All of which despite having suddenly showing his lower body after panel 2. (Which could indicate he’s standing height is equal to his sitting height (Weee, flailing feet), or he has super growing and shrinking powers.

    • Rick Griffin

      Kevin is leaning over in panel one

      And Ralph is leaning against a locker just off-panel

      There I win

      • Hypergenesis

        No more images of Ralph going “sqeeeee!”, briskly wagging his shaggy tail and flailing his feet while sitting on an unusually high (it’s short for humans but high for pets) stool. (That’s of Dog Fancy = Pet Fancy if Dog = Pet) =(

        But Ralph sitting down and calmly reading just changed to Ralph leaning and calmly reading stays the same. (That’s if Dog Fancy = Dog Fancy IRL)

        I would think it’s the former because Ralph seemed sad and partypooped (tee hee, I said poop) when Kevin interrupted him.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          • Argent Stonecutter

            What it means is “I have no idea what Hype’s message means, so here’s a picture of a rabbit with a pancake on its head”. Except without the rabbit. Or the pancake.

          • Hypergenesis

            Hmmm, so what part(s) of the comment has you baffled?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            All of it?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Would it make more sense if I’d seen Bolt?

          • Hypergenesis

            Ah, simply put if what Ralph is reading is equivalent to the HP universe’s Pet Fancy, I could see him quite excited with a Daisy smile and doing the actions you would expect from a three year old on the riverbanks, which is to say kicking his feet that are dangling from the high stool (the other action would be drowning but I think Ralph’s a good swimmer anyway).

            But if it’s just like Dog Fancy of the Real World (Our world) [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog_Fancy_(magazine) ] then those actions would be just of that of Ralph sitting still and reading quietly.

            Since Rick said he was leaning on a locker, those images simply vanished as they aren’t suitable for filling in the “before the strip” parts anymore. (I just read one-off comics that way.)

          • Flammie

            Sorry, where was Pet Fancy mentioned? I can’t seem to find it by searching functions alone, and there’re an awful lot of comics to trawl through…

          • Hypergenesis

            Cast Page, Simon, Alt-Text

          • Flammie

            Oh, right, I found that in my fervent searching, but I thought there was something in the comics as well. Well, that works as well. Thanks, anyways.

      • Hypergenesis

        Also, simply saying “I zoomed out” would have already made you win (and beat me very badly, camera monopolizer).

        Looking at it again, there would have been various reasons for the constant height.

        Admitting defeat. .
        (The can’t retain the same height is Ralph is leaning on a locker and Kevin was leaning that much. It would have mean Ralph was leaning very low to have matched Kevin’s height loss due to leaning.)
        Admitting defeat. . .
        (But how to prove the locker isn’t there. . .)
        Failed to admit defeat.

        He can’t be leaning on a locker! Look at panel1 lowermost right corner (my right, not their right) it’s gray! Ralph couldn’t be leaning on a locker, if he was he would have been paper thin! (Don’t publish, don’t publish. .) and make him leaning like \| (where \ = Ralph). . .

        . . . (Doesn’t make a lot of sense. . .)

        Admitted defeat. . .

    We all know who’d buy a calandar of just Kevin but given who usually buys Policeman calandars like that in RL who exactly would be buying these in universe? Sasha?

    • Hypergenesis

      A friend of mine once bought a whole box of Police calendars to give to his friends for Christmas.

      They were all guys (read: gais) and they appreciated it, though I think they were only interested in the December part of the calendars, strange people. . .

      (P.S. That was the page with the decent looking officers, and that was the only page which the officer was actually posing for the camera and not a picture of the force in action.)
      [Also: We had great laughs giving out those $2 equivalent Christmas presents and foiling the capitalist's holiday, at least a little part of it. . . {read:negligible)]

    Thank you Rick! Once again I am looked on in wonder by my fellow workers as I laugh my a..err…Tail off! I really gota stop reading these at work. :P

    You got to love kevins expression on the last panel xD

    • Valerio

      Ya got to love EVERYTHING of Kevin ;)

      • Rendak

        True, very true

    • Ryufire

      Its almost as if Kevin is saying “You see this face? Its because I’m Happy” Arf!!! XD

      • Valerio

        He iz happy. We iz happy. :)

  29. Inu225

    Out of curiosity, is that a keyhole in Kevin’s collar?
    If so why?

    • Hypergenesis

      Because a buckle might break if Kevin was ever needed to be leashed.

    • Ryufire

      If Kevin’s collar was to be removed maybe he will turn out just like Jet Li from the movie “Unleashed” 0.0 No…Kevin would still be Kevin..yup ^^

      • Argent Stonecutter

        If his collar was removed he’d be NAKED!

    Also, I noticed. . .

    Ralph: You had us all take time off to get out photos.

    Why is Kevin not in uniform?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Huh? They both look like they’re in uniform.

    • Valerio

      cuz the ladies will gladly buy some kevin ‘au natural’ :D

      Because, as Kevin pointed out, he wanted to show off his pecs in that one

        Somehow just from that comment, I feel like Kevin regressed six years in my age estimates, , , or rose 12.

  31. Lance

    I wonder if they will get new calenders or try to sell those? but really I want to know where are all these grape+peanut avies coming from? There’s at least 3 or 4!

      Two-Twig was so kind to illustrate the scene from that episode’s last chapter. YAYZ!

    • Hypergenesis

      Ralph said it was Kevon’s little project, so it might mean that there are other merchandise/services for the charity as well. So new calendars might be out of the option, new calendars would mean more products to push, I mean sell and the increased investments might just blow a hole through their budget.

      About the avatars.
      Of course it’s from fanart silly, that’s not’s Rick’s style.
      Photoshopping, would be another culprit.
      Although Rick actually made at least one of the P&G’s original image(not Proctor and Gamble), it was the comic a few updates back.
      You can make yourself one too or try to google for one as well.

    • Buckdida

      Try nosing around in the forums, or at the Housepets DA group. There’s tons of Peanut and Grape fanart there; some of them are used for avatars.

  32. Flammie

    I don’t think I’ve seen Kevin or Ralph at that angle, nor seen a comic where Kevin had such innocent glee, actually. Ralph is as serious as ever, though.

    It’s quite adorable.

    Hooray for another K-9 comic.

    • Hypergenesis

      Where have you been? It’s been a while since you posted.

      From that angle? You mean the side of their characters by that right? Well it’s no surprise, random chitchat does occur during work. Also since Ralph seems to be friends with a lot of pets, and by friends I mean close acquaintances of the same level, he never seemed to be the “all work, no play” type. (Further backed up by the lack of scolding Kevin got for just calling Sergeant Ralph with just “Ralph” [First name basis is a no-no in hierarchal commands]).

      On Kevin’s glee, try reading “All the King’s men again with that image fresh in mind.

      Ralph wasn’t so serious during Theme Park World, more like relaxed but I guess that differs from person to person.

      Agree, Agree, yes really.

      • Flammie

        I’ve been floating about, reading the comic, but I’ve been a bit too busy with work and such. I read the comments, but I didn’t really have time to hang around and make them.

        Yeah, I think I’ve really mostly seen them from the front or the back. You have a point with Ralph, but I guess he has to be serious as a Sergeant, nonetheless.

        I might try reading it again with that image, then.

        Yeah, Ralph seemed to have relaxed a little in the Theme Park, but he still felt a bit no-nonsense. I don’t know, it’s probably just me.

        • Hypergenesis

          So what did you suppose Ralph did (hehe, I won’t get scolded too) in the full-of-nonsense There Park World?

          Fine the ferrets? (Would be a laugh to see them just throw the bill to their already staggering pile)
          Correct the labels? (It’s every officer’s duty to lead others in the right way)
          Arrested anyone who entered the grass to wee? (That would be King)

          I would think he would have an angry face when he was truly no-nonsense. Probably the right term would be little-nonsense =) but that’s just asking to be derped.

          • Flammie

            I guess little-nonsense would be a better term if one wished to be pernickety (I did say a bit no-nonsense, which skirts it slightly, maybe…). Though, it’s just that I haven’t seen him smile (there may be others, but I’m just thinking of the characters in this strip), so I just kinda get that impression.

            You do raise a good question about what he actually did in there, though. I could possibly imagine him finding it entertaining, but for some reason, I can’t imagine a smile on his face.

            I mean, he wasn’t on duty in there, (I don’t think, he wasn’t wearing his police jacket…) so he probably was there for recreational purposes like the others.

          • Hypergenesis

            Somehow, I never noticed it, it is hard to imagine him smiling except for a Daisy smile, (I guess that’s why I never noticed.) or it could just be my mind telling my mind not to imagine Ralph smiling (“It ruins his character.”, it says.).

          • Flammie

            Hm, I think the “Yay?” and “Don’t answer that” seem to help add to your points actually, thinking about it.

            …I guess we can’t really put him on a Nonsense Tolerance scale that easily.

      • Flammie

        Hm, I just realised you thought I meant seeing their characters like this when I said “at this angle”, whilst, as silly as it sounds, I was talking about seeing them physically from that angle. It makes my response of “Yeah, I think I’ve really mostly seen them from the front or the back.” stranger, too.

        …I guess I am even more slow witted in the morning.

        • Hypergenesis

          I though you were saying you knew them very well – termed oddly, yes but what else would be new here? – so I just followed through.

          I believe Sergeant Ralph Has done these angle already, though with visors.
          Kevin has also been drawn in this angle but with a serious face and visors.

          Probably those would help clear the oddity you might be feeling about them?

          • Flammie

            Oh, apologies for that, then.

            Hm, I guess we have already seen them as they’re looking at a sort of “diagonal” angle (from our point of view), though not at the same time as this up close (above waist height). I don’t think it’s the lack of visors.

            Still, it’s not really an oddity I’m feeling, I just quite like seeing them from this perspective.

  33. Alex M.

    I’m wonmdering….
    For what charity they make calendars?

    • Hypergenesis

      It’s usually a community fundraiser if it’s hosted by the police so probably “the Academy” pet (military) school or free education.

      Maybe better pet restaurants because as we saw in the “n-ple Date” arc, they’re not very classy (nor hygienic.)

      It could also be for the restoration of the houses from Easter, you can never be too careful with burnt buildings.

      I would say a lot more but I’ll let your imagination do that for me. (Work, Work. Can’t be caught playing at work.)

            The best zombie book I ever read was “FEED” by Mira Grant. You should read it. It is good.

  37. Shady Kitsune

    Geez, those biceps look abnormal!

    • Nohbody

      That seems to be a point of concern in general with Rick’s art. Miles’ arms are drawn similarly.

      Mind you, I can mess up stick figures, so I don’t exactly have all that firm a platform from which to complain about Rick’s art. :P

      • Hypergenesis

        Similarly, but the dubious base of the muscle was not shown. Besides, it’s normal for bulges, even disfiguring big ones, to appear from too much body building. I would say Miles’s bulge, even if it should have the same base, wouldn’t be so unusual since his skin is firm/stretched. Kevin’s look like he actually lost body mass, thus creating flaps.

    • Valerio

      nothing abnormal witk Kevin
      very absnormal instead

      • Ryufire

        I’d give Kevin a hug :)

        • Valerio

          jajajajajajajajajaja! I want to be tackled by Mr. Biggie Best :D

  38. Argent Stonecutter

    That first panel really makes it sound like Kevin’s barking like a dog. Reminds me of the Loony Tunes shorts with the big dog and the little dog. Chester and Spike. “Hey Spike, Hey Hey Hey Spike!”

    “That’s my pal Chester. He’s so strong!”

    • Frank

      Man, I loved those guys! How come they got so little air time?

      • Hypergenesis

        They only had two or three episodes I think. If that’s true, then shuffling through a hundred or so LT episodes in hopes of it popping out would be somewhat slim. Besides, they were always featured with Sylvester and Tweety right, Those two usually had that dog with them so it might have contributed even more to obscuring the two from showing.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Two episodes, both with Sylvester. In one they keep running into an escaped panther. In another, Sylvester discovers Dr Jekyll’s potion.

  39. Rocket Knight boy

    hmmm…for some reason ralph reminds me of fox in this comic and i think he looks like a fox recolour (with k-9 uniform) and……for some odd reason i see sasha in kevin…………

      Yes, I know he’s a Shep, but I have a thing for making him a malinois. They’re so much better as a K9 unit, IMO.

    Hey haven’t seen the K-9 units around in a while. They’re always fun to watch. X3
    Not to be rude, but I aslo have a friend who’s like that always talking and bragging about his workouts and it’s so annoying sometimes that I’d hit ppl like that sometimes. XP

    • Hypergenesis

      Wouldn’t that be a bad idea?

      I mean seriously, hitting a person who already talks, and can actually brag, about his workouts. . ?

      (there was a proper meme for this right? I just don’t like most memes so I won’t put one up.)

      • dalonewolf25

        You are not alone…

      • Gaboris

        BAH! Don’ try to get to me with your LOGIC Hyper! The point is not to beat them but to show them they are annoying… plus I never said I wouldn’t do it with a frying pan from the back while makin a cartoon sound effect for it. XD

        Okay-okay just jokin. X3
        (BTW isn’t that meme thing about you telling others ya don’ like somethin but ya still use that same thing to tell them? Just a thought. :3)

        • Hypergenesis

          That’s still a bad idea as some can actually have a 2×4 smashed at the back of their heads and they just turn around and say “Durrr?”

          (I was thinking of something like “you mad?” probably one with FunkyChicken’s gravie. [No offense to meant to Funky.])

          • gaboris

            … Point there again, lucky I’m not that drastic to do such a thing BTW. (“Durrr?” Heh that’s too funny of a thought.) X)

            Oh that one… never saw it but okay I’ll agree. :)

    Keviiiinnn…*sigh, slow facepalm*

    Looking at Ralph’s tag, which looks like a whistle, I can’t help but wonder if, the way it is, hanging by the mouthpiece, it’s awkward to use, if it is, indeed, a whistle.

    Good one. Just going back a peach, anyone got any wild theories on who the many-tailed fox’s avatar is in relation to Tarot, Pete and King’s story? Vaguely, I thoought it might be “Hi! I’m Daisy…” but then theres the question of whether the Cosmic Fox is male or female. my 3 Fav characters are Grape, Tarot and King.

    • dalonewolf25

      You’ve just opened a new door of curiosity! Never would I have thought of Daisy…hmm…

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I bet he’s Steward.

    • Hypergenesis

      If my knowledge on D&D is correct (and I sure hope it is)
      The GM/DM doesn’t really need to have a playing character, but instead uses the NPCs and their interactions as his/her presence in the game. He/She dictates how the NPCs react to the PCs, and he’s/she’s also the on responsible for random events. So if you think about it, GK doesn’t really need an avatar, but if there should be one most specific character he’s playing as. . .

      Then that would be:
      Great Kitsune = Rick Griffin,

      Since both rule the Housepets universe.

      • Hypergenesis

        or should I say, Rick plays as the Great Kitsune.

        Derp. . .

        Nyar har har.

        • dalonewolf25

          So, in a sense, he would be breaking the fourth wall?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            And we finally got it plastered and repainted too!

          • Hypergenesis

            Nope, our dimension is but a part of the multiverse so that’s going to be breaking the fifth, sixth, seventh, eight. . and so on walls. Infinity Combo!

            Why?
            Well, if Rick plays as the Great Kitsune, and the Great Kitsune is in control of a game that could spread to any universe (remember he said: “I play in your universe cause I like you guys. . .” means he can travel to different ones as well) we could be part of a game of the Great Kitsune. If we live in the same universe as Rick, (which I am pretty sure if just in terms of living, I’m at least three levels below in terms of awesomeness.) then Rick is also controlled by the Great Kitsune, but Rick controls the Great Kitsune who controls Rick who controls the GK who controls RG who controls. . . (Got it?)

            Hmm…yes, I see…but wouldn’t that be a theory similar to schrodinger’s cat? Also, in a sense, he went through the fourth wall, didn’t break it, and destroyed the others using the power of imagination, creating a rip in the fabric of time, leading us to our doom? (Considering time is not the 4th dimension)

          • Hypergenesis

            The original experiment? It’s not as confusing as this because if you think about Schrödinger’s cat, it will be dead sooner or later so I’ll take it as dead but be surprised if it’s still alive. (And of course, get fined heavily for it, unless no one knows.) Though getting back to the point, in essence it is.

            The fourth wall is the imaginary wall between our world and the imaginary world that’s why if a real person breaks through the fourth wall and breaks the fourth wall more with his imagination, that’s unlimited power. It wouldn’t cause us our doom unless the he is an evil person.

          • dalonewolf25

            hmm…i see…i can imagine one of the housepets characters looking up something on the computer and somehow landing up in the housepets website.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            That’s one way to break the fourth wall.

            Another way is just having them look at the readers and say “hey, don’t blame me, I don’t write this stuff”.

            Like the Doonesbury strips where they do mail calls.

      Uh, that was supposed to be a reply to FunkyChicken

      • Frank

        Okay, fail. Either I linked to the wrong post, or the post I was replying to wasn’t FunkyChicken’s, or the post I was replying to got deleted.

    • FunkyChicken

      Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh….

      Reading the backlog for the win? I guess Pet Fancy is more interesting then paperwork any day.

  55. FurryNerd

    wow, biceps look weird
    *looks at own (no) biceps*

  56. iHavezMyBirdo

    Ralph is still looking.

  57. HonorèDerazey

    You know, at first I thought way Ralph hasn’t talked to Kevin about being so egotistical, but I’m sure he did do that and it didn’t go well:

    Ralph: You know Kevin, you really-
    Kevin’s Thoughts Blocking Out Ralph’s Lecture: TackleTackleTackleTackleTackle
    Ralph: -do you understand now, Kevin?
    Kevin: Did you say Tackle?!?!
    Ralph: My god, NOT THIS AG-
    Kevin: *Tackles Ralph*

    So what did Kavin exactly do with photos of everyone? My guess is they’re put on the back of the calender and shown really small.

    • dalonewolf25

      …or they could be next year’s photos, like the calendars they used to sell of each dog breed for each year, maybe?

    • Alex M.

      Or just throw away,because it’s a only Kevin calendar,or, yeah they could be the next year calendar photos.
      En fin,that photos aren’t good enough for Kevin.

      • dalonewolf25

        *those instead of that. Sorry for correcting you so much….
        Also, maybe he placed them in a nice, comfy tackle bag, no?

        • Alex M.

          Just look at time i posted,3:07 am,after finishing a big homework :l , i was literally sleep,even i wotre in spanish .
          And thanks for all the corrections,I learn more from failing than succes.

          • dalonewolf25

            Anytime. And you’re right. Nothing good comes from success.
            Even more corrections:
            *asleep instead of sleep
            *wrote instead of wotre
            *success instead of succes

          • Alex M.

            Ok, really need to buy that Espanish-English dictionary.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      No, I’m still on the lugubrious lime.

            C-c-c-combo breaker!
            I’m still on the happy milk.

    • Frank

      Kevin is orange?

  60. Bleh

    I would buy that calendar….FOR CHARITY!…..yeah…

  61. The Wolf Next Door

    Excuse me… May i have a copy? ;3

  62. Miles Rose

    He reminds me of Frank West

    HEY COME ON, HEY, HEY COME ON.

  63. Alex M.

    Gravatar make my avatar’s look blurry.
    And hope im doing right,because,so my avatar change and i’ll be good.

  64. WingedWolfGirl

    And now I can only think of Kevin as talking with a Arnold Schwarzenegger sound-alike-voice.
    -But then again that’s stereotyping,
    Or it could be Blitz (from Road Rovers) talking in my head.
    …which is still stereotyping cuz Blitz is also a Doberman. x_x

    • dalonewolf25

      Not really because he sounds too excited to be in an Arnold Schwarzenegger-like sound. Maybe a smoother voice, perhaps?

  65. dalonewolf25

    Has anyone noticed that there’s no dates on the calendars?!? I can’t believe it took me 3 days to notice that. FAIL on my part.

    • Hypergenesis

      Maybe that’s the first page. You know, the page where you can free write in?

      I saw some calendars with pages like that last year.

  66. RockstarRaccoon

    Wow… Kevin…. Steroids much?
