  1. Ryufire

    Oh Sasha!! ^^

    • dalonewolf25

      If you look at Panel 2, if you separate the face from the whole background, you can see Sasha’s actually screaming with joy.

      • Frank

        Dunno. The bared teeth and inclined brow kind of ruin the “joy” effect

        • Argent Stonecutter

          The expression looks more like “schooling Bino again”.

          • dalonewolf25

            No, it looks more like a “YEAH!!!!” face, no?

          • sonic id furreh!!!


        • Gaboris

          I’d agree with ya on that Frank… course she still looks great. XD

    • Skykitsune

      *insert double facepalm here*

  2. Alex M.

    Angry Sasha is cute :3

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Sasha gets legitimately mad? Who knew.

      • Alex M.

        Looks like, especially when the “paid” was mentioned…

        • dalonewolf25

          This reminds me of EddCo.

          • Frank

            At risk of sounding blisfully ignorant, Edd who?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I think it’s a TV show reference. Ed, Edd, and Eddy.

            Ironically, there’s a real Eddco. They make forklifts and stuff.

          • dalonewolf25

            Really? That’s an ironical outcome…

            …and yes, I was talking about Ed, Edd, and Eddy.

            *gives an orange soda to the ferret*

          • Naylorfan90

            We’re going UP!! =D

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            @ dalonewolf
            wait, ai want a orange soda D: !!!!
            give meh one X< !!!!!1

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Dook dook dook DOOK dook.

        • Gaboris

          I’d say that’s more of a “Wut?” expression in the last panel not an angry one… she should be, but we’re talkin aboot Sasha her for Pete’s sake. XD

          • Final Silence

            Please don’t bring Pete into this. Then it’ll definitly end badly.

          • silverfang16

            Maybe not, maybe he could get behind this and lend some magic.

          • Gaboris

            Ummm… okay gonna quote Rock now: “Okay, bad choice of words.” This “for Pete’s sake” is the “for God’s sake” so don’ worry aboot *Random guy taps on back* (RG: Don’t ruin other peoples jokes pal. G: … Ummm…)
            Okay wierd then I’ll just say that let’s hope Pete won’t return just yet… (Who WAS that guy anyway? O_o”)

  3. AvanWolf

    How did she get a typo in her speech? :D (cibble)

    • AvanWolf

      oh wait, I’m an idiot – its the brand name XD
      never mind

      • dalonewolf25

        I was gonna say “Read the Alt-Text,” but apparently, you just did…

  4. dalonewolf25

    Alt-Text: Canine Cibble: Why should K’s get to have all the fun?

    • EHH

      True. If C gets to be replaced by K all the time, why not the other way around?

      • Kamron

        There’s kertainly no way that kould go wrong.

        • dalonewolf25

          You should use “K” only when you have:
          …but some companies do it because it “feels” right to have all “K’s.” Also, technically, “K” is more appealing than “C” since it is used less…

      • Inu225

        That’s Cind of Krazy.

        • Kamron

          I cnow, right? This konfusion sure spikes things up.

    • Grammer Nazi

      Because that would make it Canine Sibble

  5. Crazy-8

    ha, cute

    • Mukavich

      You mean “Kute”!

  6. dalonewolf25

    So Sasha no smiley faic after knowing to get paid? E|:/

    • Ryufire

      That comes to show you that Sasha is no greedy pooch!
      Only she can carry the one ring!!

      • dalonewolf25

        *Gasp!* You mean the forbidden ring which has been banned among the realms? Or the one that got thrown in the volcano?

        • Frank

          That’s the one!

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            wich one
            numer 1 or 2!?! :? ?

          • dalonewolf25

            The forbidden number 69! They fused the 1 and 2 together in an underground passage of Area 51.1 and created the ultimate weapon…*radio signal cuts off*

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            ai dun get the reference…

      • Argent Stonecutter

        It won’t do her any good to wear the ring because she sure hasn’t forsaken love. But she’s as empty-headed as a nixie so she’s probably safe from Alberich’s curse.

    • Frank

      It’s too much of a shock for her. Give her some time to process it. Remember this is Sasha we’re talking about.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      She’s not, I don’t think, that’s the point.

  7. Thegamist

    money makes the world go round

    • Rocket Knight boy

      Gravity actually…

      please forgive me…Buzz Killington is my uncle

      • Leinad

        really? can you get me an autograph?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Conservation of angular momentum and kinetic energy makes the world go round.

        • Rocket Knight boy

          that helps too lol

  8. Elijah_Blu

    No one gets paid.

    • Frank

      and retires with his winnings and builds a mansion on a mountain. When people ask, “who does that big house up there belong to?” the answer is always “No one”

  9. Falcon01


  10. IceKitsune

    Sasha is very cute in this one and I’ve always wondered if Pets get paid for there work like do Fido and the rest of the K-9 unit get paid? (I would assume they don’t)

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Just throw them a Milk Bone and you’re good, dogs ain’t picky.

    • dalonewolf25

      They get paid in Kibbles n’ Bits and doggy chew toys…or extra allowance for doing such a good job helping others…

      • Sekioh

        You mean Cibble ‘n Bits…

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Someone’s gotta pay for those cool shades they wear…

      • Leinad

        i thought those were standard issue…

        • silverfang16

          Not Fido’s. He already had his…….I think.

    • silverfang16

      Good question. They must though, how else can they get ice cream and white chocolate?

  11. Asteri

    …. stunt cereal lololol
    then we’ll realize that she’s allergic to all cereals and have to use Computer Graphics lololol

    • dalonewolf25

      Don’t we all? E|;D

      • Frank

        Okay, technically that’s true because we’re reading this comic on a computer screen, but it’s not what you traditionally call “Computer Graphics”

  12. BlueAnubis

    Canine Cibble can’t be beat.
    It makes each meal a special treat.

    • lightwolf21

      Obscure 1960s animated Disney film reference. X3

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        101 Dalmatians is obscure?

        • lightwolf21

          Of course not…but the reference was. ;D

          • Elwood Blutarsky

            AH! Now it makes sense. To be honest I thought of that movie with this strip (as did a lot of floks likely because of the joke about switching Ks and Cs)

        • Frank

          That particular scene is (at least within the film)

    • Frank

      So-o-o-o-o, do what all the smart dogs do
      And you’ll feel great the whole day through.
      You can be a champion too
      If you eat Canine Cibble!

      • Alahmnat

        I’ve always thought that commercial was weird (and insanely catchy). I mean, it’s aimed at the dogs, whom we’ve established can speak English and understand humans, but only because the viewer is seeing the world from their perspective. It just makes no sense for people to advertise to them in the 101 Dalmations world construct.

        Of course, I have a habit of over-thinking things like this to the point that I break down my own suspension of disbelief. Maybe I should just shut up and sing the jingle ;) .

        • Argent Stonecutter

          The point of advertising is to get people to remember the name.

          Making sense isn’t even in the short list.

      • Alechsa

        Kanine Krunchies was the actual commercial product, and also featured in the sequel done 50 years later by money hungry idiots at the secondary animation studios in Tokyo/Brazil/Seoul/whichever…… but I get how people are transposing… just thought I’d make sure no one thought the product was stolen from Disney. (Steal from Disney? Gasp, unheard of!)

        As an extra point: WTF is in Canine Cibble that ISN’T in other dog food that Sasha is allergic to it?!

    • xhunterko

      But, does it make it’s own gravy?

      • silverfang16

        And more importantly come in it’s own bowl?

        • xhunterko

          And does that bowl come with a spoon?

          • BeatReaktor

            Spork Okay?

          • silverfang16

            I guess…..but it’s still not the same.

  13. Frank

    Hooray for “collective groan” effects!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      But I haven’t even made a pun about how “Rock rolls” yet.

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        Why? Is he a stranger to love?

  14. xhunterko

    Note to Rock: What they don’t know won’t hurt them.

    • Frank

      “they” being the audience, or the actors?

      • xhunterko

        In the case of commercials, more likely both. But I was refering to Sasha not knowing she was getting paid.

  15. Argent Stonecutter

    Oh, Rock, where are your ethics?
    Rock: That’s in Kent isn’t it?

    • Frank

      In Kent? Nah, it’s probably a county to itself!

  16. Inu225

    Is Canine Cibble considered pet food or cereal?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Ya, cereously?

    • Frank

      Is cereal considered food?

      • lightwolf21

        I consider it food… I mean, it satisfies my hunger.

        • Sekioh

          Isn’t that Snickers?

          • lightwolf21

            Hungry?… Why wait?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        It’s not just food, it’s biblical.

        • Frank

          Is this the age-old discusion of the differance between “cereal”, “corn” and “grain”?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Cereal and grain are pretty much synonymous.

            Corn, well, I’m not getting into that maize.

          • Clairvoyant Legacy

            I c wat u did thar.

          • Rocket Knight boy


            (Begins to clap slowly)

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            *begins to clap w/ rocket*

      • Inu225

        Well it’s edible… I think.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Technically Purina did used to make both

      • Inu225

        Purina Dog Cereal? 0_o

        • Elwood Blutarsky

          Actually they made Chex and Cookie Crisp

          • BeatReaktor

            Cookie crisp has got to be the dankest cereal ever! :D

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            iz dat good… or bad >.> ?

  17. Fuzzypaws

    I keep wondering how much savant there is in Sasha’s idiot savant role. *giggles*

  18. ben

    LoL, Pince-Nez sunglasses. I think Sasha is my favorite character.

  19. Argent Stonecutter

    So, anyway, isn’t Rock rich enough that he’s got no reason to shortchange the talent.

    Except maybe he thinks that’s in character for a director?

    Or have the other ferrets put him on a tight budget?

  20. BeatReaktor

    My question is… how is “Canine Cibble” gonna compete with the instant kibble that comes with it’s own styrofoam bowl!?

    • Jirodyne

      Is it sad that I wonder this too?

  21. iHavezMyBirdo

    So, what? Is she getting paid?

    • Final Silence

      I would take the “Bad choice of words” after-effect as a no. Well… until he said that.

  22. Russiarules1

    Like I said, Capitalism!
    And I’m proud of it!
    Cibble, wtf? Anyway, I wonder what will happen next?

    • Firewolf

      “Whats That For” is wtf, right? =)

      • Russiarules1

        Uh, not really……
        But lets “Ceep” it that way, yeah?

        • Frank

          At least before it seeps out!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      No, Kapitalism!

  23. Firewolf

    This is the First Strip I think that I have NEVER seen Sasha smile in…END OF THE WORLD!!!!!

    • Gaboris

      Wow such a simple yet so hard to read sentence. Now THIS is the real end. XD

  24. Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

    ROFL! XD NYAHAHAHAHA! *Catches breath* That’s why Ah lub Sasha, nya! ~^w^~
    She’s so siwwy tha it iz adowibul, purrrz! ~^.^~

    • Gaboris

      Take it easy now man. If you pass out now what’s gonna be with ya in the rest of the arc? :D

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        Ahm sowwy, nya! ;p Iz juz tha Sasha iz really B-ing her self, nya! ~^w^~ She’s so adowibul, nya! X3

        • Gaboris

          Yeah she’s just great. X3
          But keep it up there will be more… I bet… or hope. :D

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            der better be maor |:o
            cuz if there isn’t ai might crai :(

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            O’course there will B! O.o
            We demand IT, nya! >.<

          • Naylorfan90

            Shush, nya! >:3
            This is Rick, he wouldn’t let us down! *nod-nods*

    • Foxstar




      My god, thought I’d blow something trying to translate that.

      • Final Silence

        Want me as a transalator? Its cheap. 1 cookie for every sentence.

      • Final Silence

        Yeah, it doesn’t bother me… Its actually kind of fun… To read and speak.

  25. Smallfoot

    Silly Sasha. If you’re allergic to the cibble, of course it’d come up.


    • Gaboris

      Okay that got nasty… but meh it’ll do. :p

    • Clairvoyant Legacy

      Smallfoot wins an internet.

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      oh ai get it X3
      that took meh ah few seconds though XD

  26. Gaboris

    BTW in most shows and commercials they don’ use real food cuz it may go bad by the time they get to shoot the real stuff, but I’m not sure what’s the stuff they really eat then in the first place. XD
    Is it just me or is Sasha’s face bigger than normal in the second panel? O_o”

    Funny that I get that “Why am I paying you?” stuff a LOT from my bro… MAN it’s annoying. XP

  27. Clairvoyant Legacy

    I like how they’re all so innocent and don’t want to lie.

    With a few exceptions, of course.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Sasha is quite prepared to mislead, when it’s funny… like in the piano scene.

  28. zeroslash

    Rick is getting very good with his facial expressions.

  29. Sperkle

    They could have just tied a milk bone on a stick to her head for payment.l.

  30. e

    why do directors only want a lovely face instead of a smart brain?

    • Rocket Knight boy

      you can’t SEE a smart brain

      i just pictured that guy who gets a piece of his brain eaten in one of the hannabal lecter films, advertising some cereal…


  31. Z24

    Well, I think Rock is the greediest of all the 6 XD

    And, you know all good actors never really “read” the script…

    • Naylorfan90

      *awards one internet*

  32. silverfang16

    She figures out Bino re-gifted her but she didn’t make sure she was getting paid?

  33. ReCreate


    lol, this was my favorite part. :P

    • BeatReaktor


  34. The J.A.M.

    So is it pronounced “sibble” or “qibble”? :D

    • Argent Stonecutter

      If it alliterates with “canine” it’s a hard “c”.

      • Naylorfan90

        I love alliteration. :-)

  35. FerreTrip

    Now, in reality, the person at fault is Rock for overestimating Sasha’s intelligence (be it actual or perceived) and wisdom (same).

    I have another question, but first I should ask: Is it just “canine cibble” (a general term but with a different spelling for some reason) or is it “Canine Cibble” (a certain brand or product line in a brand)?

    • Dena

      Look at the board behind her.
      Canine Cibble.

  36. Captainpea

    First thing I thought when I saw this strip was OMG VITAMEATAVEGAMIN

  37. Nia

    See this is why you should read the entire contract and make sure you get your cash before you film the commercial.

  38. Lycos

    Heh second panel Sasha with her words could be used if she had just thrown up too. “Why’d you just do that?” “I didn’t think it’d come up!”

    • Rendak

      I lol’ed

    • Naylorfan90


  39. Kadziet

    i’m trying to think whether or not it would be easy or hard with Daisy instead of Sasha o.o

    • Rendak

      I dunno…maybe about the same?

      • Final Silence

        It would be easier if Daisy knew more than 1 sentence. You can actually keep a conversation with Sasha… sort of.

        • Kadziet

          i’m picturing it like this: “Hi I’m Daisy” :) *eats cereal* end commercial lol

          • Final Silence

            … and the World’s Shortest Commercial Award goes to… *tears envelope and reads card*… Canine Cibble, directed by Rock, Starring Daisy!

          • Russiarules1

            Lol, I can imagine this commercial and the award thing in my TV. It would be halarious if it really happen (In the comic, of course!)

  40. Surge


  41. Max Wolfe

    It’d be easier if they “hired” Daisy.

  42. namelessone

    Aaaaand *facepalm*

  43. NickCrotser

    Yay, Sasha!

    By the way, (not meaning to go off topic but) isn’t Peanut starting to look a bit scruffy?

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      So’s Sasha here but I think that’s just a further evolution of Rick’s drawing style.

  44. Sansash

    Acting is lying, Sasha. I’ll bet she didn’t think of that either.

    Rock looks amazingly like Spielberg to me in Panel 3. ; )

  45. john


  46. matt

    show me
