    Hahah Oh wow Sasha!!!

    • sonic id furreh!!!


      • Ryufire

        HECK YEEESSSSZZZZZZZZZZ!!! She is the key to world peace! ^w^

        • dalonewolf25

          But…I thought Daisy was the key to world peace…E|:(

      • Firewolf

        The Bouncy, smiling, agreeable, naive, Not so bright Genius that is Sasha. Who doesn’t Luv Shasha? She is the definition of…What is the one word for Sasha?

        • Gaboris

          The one word for her is Sasha!!! XD


        Sasha’s ok, beats Daisy

  2. KimbaWLion

    Who is that actor dog?

    • dalonewolf25

      ALT-TEXT: “the actor dog there is nobody in particular, stop asking already!”

      Grammar Nazi Time!
      Should be: “The actor dog is nobody in particular. Stop asking already!”

      • Rick Griffin

        Hey, You ought to know by now I play fast and loose with the stops

        • dalonewolf25

          Ya, I should have removed the period…

          • dalonewolf25

            Oh, double d’oh! I realized the sentence makes sense if you say it with an accent…

      • HonorèDerazey

        Actually, I think that because you can arrange the sentence like this that the comment is necessary:

        “Stop asking already, the actor dog is nobody in particular”

        Although I’m 75% sure this is wrong because I’m horribly disabled in English.

      • Justice193

        Obviously the reason he worded it that way is because the actor dog has a striking resemblance to a certain someone’s fursona.

      • corjoth

        the actor dog may be noone important but if you look at his tag he is still copyrighted>.>

        • Justice193

          … or maybe I was wrong and his name is copyright, thus placing his signiture on every single piece of work with a copyright…

          That explains why artists with copyrights are so much better than the others, they all have a helper dog that’s had centuries of experience! O.O

    • Pseudo Faux

      No one in particular, stop asking. <.=.<

      Alttxt: The actor dog there is nobody one in particular, stop asking!

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        Well he nipped that question in the bud quick. Nice move.

      • Sansash

        I never did ask, and clearly his name’s Rover.

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          either dat or sasha’s jus bein sasha ;)

        • Rick Griffin

          That could just be the character name

          • Dissension

            Which would make sense, considering the alt-text.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            ….. >.> i like ricks idea better <.<

          • dalonewolf25

            Aww…I was gonna say that…

          • Sansash

            Point Rick Griffin. Odder still, his tag’s got a C on it.

            By the way, I’m really psyched that you’ll be a guest of honor at MFF 2011! I hope I’ll be able to go! I love your comics, your art, and your stories!

            heh… it rhymes X3

          • Firewolf

            That ^^^ was a Sasha comment if I ever heard one. {-D

          • Pecan

            Ah, Rick. You already know that the forums are gonna give him a name anyway. :3=

        • Inu225

          I thought his name was “Nobody in Particular”.

        • HonorèDerazey

          Ah, but do you not see the “C” on his tag?

          • Rendak

            He’s a “Canine”
            *is bricked for not being able to make the joke he wanted to*

          • HonorèDerazey

            Correction: *is frying panned for not being able to make the joke he wanted to*

          • Rendak

            *is hit by a frying pan*
            OW! WHAT’D I DO?

          • Final Silence

            *looks at frying pan* Who brought a frying pan here?

          • betatag

            isent the c like, a copyright symbol? because he’s so genaric?anybody?………………….*shrugs*

          • HonorèDerazey

            @Final Silence

            ………. *Points to Grape*

    • Chip Uni

      From when he was a puppy, Clemens always wanted to act. From playing the rutabaga in his obedience school play to romping around in the background during an outdoor interview of KPET news, if it has to do with acting, he’s for it.

      But he doesn’t have the money for proper acting training. To save up for classes, he’s working at a pet-friendly restaurant as a waiter-short order cook.

      While working out at the gym, he met Miles. Though Miles is into weightlifting and Clemens is into aerobic exercise, they hit it off well. Through Miles and Lucretia, he met the Milton ferrets.

      He supplies Rock with pilfered orange sodas. (Stolen food and drink is tastiest. It’s a ferret thing.) Rock gave him this break in return.

      • dalonewolf25

        Sir, you’ve just won the internet!

  3. dalonewolf25

    Golden Retriever!

  4. Alex M.

    Yellow Dog….

    • Alex M.

      Yellow dog in a yellow submarine in a yellow tv commercial…

    • PrivateElliot

      Care to tell us why everyone hates golden retrievers?

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        heh mai friend has a golden retriever and she’s dumb as dirt!! XD

      • Alex M.

        What? No I didn’t say that I hate golden retrievers, it’s just the color, so bright, so yellowish (Not sure if that is a word).

      • BeatReaktor

        My Friend’s golden retriever tore up the backseat of my STI… I’m still plotting my revenge…

      • Argent Stonecutter

        How can anyone hate a dog that’s so happy to see you it wags its whole body?

  5. Crazy-8

    oh man, now I wanna know who the actor dog is, he probably has an awesome backstory that we’ll never see!

  6. Vespier Leo

    Seems like something she would do……

  7. Asteri

    o.0 I thought the shoot would continue regardless of how bad it was…

  8. Dissension

    Generic blond-haired, blue-eyed, well-built actor dog.


  9. sonic id furreh!!!

    heh sasha looks so funky in that out fit X3!!!

    • Sansash

      It almost looks like she shaved. o_O

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        OH MAI GAWD that would beh sooooooooo weird o_0

    • Alex M.

      Where she get it?

      • Rendak

        Props of course…or she just raided a closet

        • Alex M.

          Nah, I think she made it :D

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            but… that would take forever e.O

          • Alex M.

            Yes, but she is Sasha, [i]Sasha.[/i]

          • Frank

            If she’s patient enough to take three months to sort through Valentine’s Day presents, and learn Mozart, she’s patient enough to make a body stocking

          • Alex M.

            How I do the italics effect?.

          • dalonewolf25

            Do you know html?
            If not, you can use the same tags for BB chat [] and replace it with .

          • Frank


            Simple HTML tags

          • dalonewolf25

            “” instead of “]”

          • Frank

            &lt; produces <
            &gt; produces >

          • dalonewolf25

            or the <! –comment– > method works here too?

  10. Rendak

    Hilarity, enough said

  11. dalonewolf25

    *Shoots Rock*
    *hears angry mob coming to get me*
    Uh oh…

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I don’t do angry mobs, sorry.

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          do u have any ferret fwiends that do :| ?

    • Rendak

      Perhaps if we throw out Rock plushies, it will stem the tide!

      • Fuzzypaws

        I want Rock plushies ^.^

        • Rendak

          That’d be awesome, especially with this face :D

    • Frank

      See, Rock? This is what you get when you don’t watch your words!

    • BlueAnubis

      Someone get some Phoenix Down for Rock! I’ve got some hunting to do.
      *loads crossbow*

    • Alex M.

      I’ll bring the Spartan Laser and a BR.

  12. Pokeblue

    Lol, she looks so weird with that thing on, but it does look cute to a certain degree.

  13. dalonewolf25

    Sasha should’ve at least left the ears out…

    • Rendak

      I know…I skimmed over it at first and didn’t even notice it was Sasha XDDD
      But anyway, yeah, it does look sorta odd

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        yah if she laike cut out ear holes or sumthin…

    • Frank

      It just wouldn’t be like her to remember that

  14. PrivateElliot

    At least it wasn’t the old spice guy…

  15. Fuzzypaws

    The dog food is now diamonds.

    • Dissension

      The diamonds are now bananas?

      • Rendak

        The bananas are now vegetables

        • 2MK

          vegetables are now dog food

          • Rendak

            Dog food labeled CC in fact

        • Frank

          “I’m on a horse”?

            I’m on a boat

          • Rendak

            I’m on a submarine

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            I’m IN a submarine

          • Rendak

            Is it yellow perchance?
            I’m in an aquatic base

          • dalonewolf25

            I’m IN a submarine sandwich…wait, whut?

            C-C-C-C-Combo Breaker!

          • Ryufire

            I’m on a decommissioned lighthouse, and I want to live at the top. And nobody knows I live there. And there’s a button I can press, and I launch that lighthouse into space.!

          • Rendak

            *takes teh sandwich your in and noms it*
            And that’s what happens when you break the combo

          • Rendak

            That’s one heck of a lighthouse!
            Also, lovely avatar Ryu

          • Foxstar

            I’m the end of the line, which stops right here.

    • Rayne

      Hello Dogs. Look at your food. Now back to mine. Now back at your food. Now back to mine. Sadly your dog food isn’t mine, but if you stop eating generic food and switch to cibble it could taste like mine. Look down.Back up!. Where are you? Your on the moon, with the food your food could taste like. Whats in your hand? I have two cats who stole hte thing you loved.Look again. The cats are now emeralds. Anything is possible when your food taste like cibble and not poop.
      I’m in a body stocking.

      • Rocket Knight boy

        HAHA!! rofl i remember those ads! lol a cookie for you sir lol

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I had to make an entire new internet so I could award you TWO internets for that.

        Boy am I bushed.

      • Chip Uni

        *immediately buys ten bags of Canine Cibble*

      • Frank

        So much better than… well… the monster I inadvertedly created

  16. Frank

    Is it just me, or does that megaphone have a trigger on it?

    • Alex M.

      I have saw some of them with buttons, but that’s a good point.

    • Rendak

      Holy crud, it totally does…wait… A trigger or a trigger guard?

      • Frank

        Trigger guard implies trigger. I’m guessing it’s behind Rock’s index finger

  17. ReCreate

    I thought sasha was a human. lol

  18. 2MK

    Does it look like Sasha wearing a body stocking,

    or a naked boy wearing a Sasha mask and gloves?

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      it says its ah bodie stocking in de comic.

      • Frank

        He knows. He’s asking what it looks like

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          oh…. umm durn that’s ah hard question :|

  19. BlueAnubis

    “The actor dog there is nobody in particular, stop asking!”

    It’s too late Rick, there is a good chance that the actor dog already has his own fanpage on facebook. You know how we, the semi-rabid fans of Housepets!, are with that kind of thing.

    • Frank

      (loads gun)
      (remembers it doesn’t work anyway)

  20. Tom

    I’m almost surprised nobody made actor-dog into an icon

    • Frank

      Apparently, people here don’t like looking blurry… nor confused… nor yellow

  21. dalonewolf25

    Facebook Comment:
    *WØØT! That guy be all rough and no play. I’d like to have his puppies!*

  22. Lance

    “someone shoot me”….how does one say that in a high squeaky voice, yet sound depressed at that same time? D=

  23. Inu225

    @ Panel 2
    I can’t but help notice that the date on the Clap Board says “4/23/10″.
    Since they only have 48 hours to print, edit, and submit the commercial I can only assume that the next comic will show the final commercial. Let’s just hope it’s not a total disaster.

  24. IceKitsune

    lol silly artsy stuff Sasha is going to drive Rock crazy

  25. Tara

    How can Sasha hear well if her ears are completely in the tight body suit?

    • Frank

      Maybe she doesn’t? You know, if you were wearing a full body stocking, you can easily guess that the first thing people are going to ask you is “why”

  26. Profesor Rod

    But that actor dog is well toned~!

  27. thewhitedragon

    the actor is TOM CRUZ (deadpool joke)

  28. xhunterko

    “…but from now on we will use nothing but Cannine Cibble in our recipes ever!”

    Provided I have the word phrasing right. Cookies to whoever can guess from what movie that line is from. Replace Cannine Cibble with a name for a baking powder, and you might be on to something. Also, another hint, there is a family in the movie with “Pringles” being the last name. Or one of the movies in the series. Yes, it is a girlie movie.

  29. TJ

    maybe the actor dog’s name really is Nobody In Particular. ever thought of that? :3

    • TJ

      ^first comment ever on housepets :3

  30. Firewolf

    PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE RICK! Please add the copyrighted Rover as a common character! He’s Awesome!…And Sasha is (sumthin) in a body Sock =D

    (And yeah, I just read the Alt txt……I can’t help it. Pleeeeeease?)

      +1 Like

    • mathgrant

      I agree that the actor dog’s copyright symbol tag is awesome, and needs to appear more often. X3

      • Frank

        Rick’s just going to give another dog the same tag!


      *Facepalm* “Rover” DOESN’T EVEN SAY ANYTHING

      • Firewolf

        Your point is? Dude, He’s a buff Golden Retriever, words aren’t necessary.

  31. Final Silence

    I had hoped and thought Sasha would be smarter… now that all went down the drain. Sasha’s just a flavor-of-the-week dog.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      She’s smart, she just has no common sense at all.

      • Z24

        For an actress, she’s a pretty good piano player.

        And Rock, shoot yourself when she asks the classic “What’s my motivation?”

        • Elwood Blutarsky

          “You’re a dog, eat the dang dog food”

          • Frank

            “You’re a ferret. Why don’t you eat it?”

            Of course, that just wouldn’t be Sasha.

          • Justice193

            but she’s allergic, remember?… lol, I can see this commercial ending with her accidentally eating some, breaking out, and looking crazy in a way that actually makes more dogs want to buy some.

      • Firewolf

        Yep, she’s cute, smart, funny, caring, and completely dumber than dirt at the same time. =D

        • Final Silence

          Adorably Scary, Rediculously Serious, Stupidly Smart . Ways to describe Sasha… her life being is a contradiction.

          • Firewolf

            And yet she’s agreeably contradictory.;-D

  32. Gaboris

    Dang you alt-text I wanted to ask his name. :3
    So okay they are using Sasha’s scripts now right? Didn’ she mention dressing up as a sock in that or she just had a quick spark of genius? Cuz she should put it out before it starts a fire. XD

  33. ThomasHogg

    I know we should “stop asking” but he could be Calvin (Klein) the dog or Copyright Dog, to give one perspective analysis of the C on the golden boys collar. Anyone think sasha looks like an oversized hotdog?

  34. Rocket Knight boy

    GAH! of coarse! why didn’t i see it before!…it’s so obvious!!

    The actor dog




  35. Anapona

    The actor dog’s name is now….. Crackers

    • Firewolf

      Nonononono! It cannot be crackers! That would take all the shame away from Tiger. Crackers is a parrots name. He’s too cool to be a cracker jack.

      • dalonewolf25

        You’re encouraging Rick more to name him so…
        Cookie can work too…
        Wait…Why not a «K» symbol?

        • Firewolf

          K symbol? And crackers is…is…*sniff*, it just can’t be. He’s a cool blond actor dude with a copyright tag…He can’t be Crackers =O

  36. Gabi

    Who’s the stagehand?

  37. MrMutt

    lol. I love Sasha in this arc. Just great.

  38. Salenstormwing

    I hate avaunt guard performance pieces. I always feel like I’m left out of the loop as to why everyone’s wearing body stockings and lighting themselves on fire and stuff.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Even when it’s Darryl Hannah?

      • Frank

        No, its his other brother Daryl!

        • Frank

          Sorry, “it’s” instead of “its”. Otherwise, it’s redundant with “his”.

          … I’m just making this worse, aren’t I?

          • Justice193

            yes frank; though if you were making a shameless stab at showing you avi’s emoticon mastery, well done :p.


    I know he’s no one in particular, but his name’s Dog that’s yellow for some reason, and THAT’S FINAL

    • Firewolf

      I got it! It’s OLD YELLER =D

      • Firewolf

        You know, he is an actor.

        • Final Silence

          Read the book… never want to see the movie, and refuse to touch the book again.

          • Justice193

            … you may wish to avoid “where the red fern grows” and the movie “Hachiko”…

            though I do highly recommend Hachiko to everyone.


          Spoiler alert: The Dog dies


          • Firewolf

            You forgot about the puppy at the end, which could be kiddies, ROVER! =D

  40. Z24

    Rock: Someone shoot me!
    Butler: *one down, five to go!*
    Rock: Not literally!
    Burler ~fingersnap~

  41. silverfang16

    Poor Rock, all he ever wanted was a high budget pet food commercial in the Macy’s Parade. Isn’t that the ferret dream?

  42. ParryLost

    And that is how the ferrets lost all of their fortune. The end. :P

    • silverfang16


  43. Tom Flapwell

    I like the lack of a question mark in the last panel, implying that Rock already knows there’s no good answer.

  44. FerreTrip

    Ohhhh, boy…This ain’t gonna end well…The “happy ending” part of me wants it to, but the “punish Rock for being a moron when he went about casting” part doesn’t. X3;

  45. Nia

    He thinks it bad now, just wait till Sasha gets a bright idea to add time travel, parrel world doubles, and somehow add a plot of time destroying itself, with bibel/pop culture/political referances

  46. Firewolf

    As long as we never forget that it all started with a “Gra-ape!”

    • FinalSilence

      And will hopefully never end. (At least not the next 2-5 years)

      • Firewolf

        …2-5?….I’d rather stick with “hopefully never end” Rick is too awesome of a comic writer to give up so soon. If he sold Housepets! In a “Best of Rick Griffin” book, I’d buy it =D

        • Argent Stonecutter

          He needs to do a book, though he’ll have problems with the infinite canvas bit. I wonder if he’ll reboot the early days in color?

        • Frank

          uh.. Argent’s mentioned it before. If the comic keeps going for too long, the ferrets are going to be the first to start dieing of old age. Best way to avoid that would be to jump onto something else before the time comes (though it may be something else within the world of Housepets!)

          • Firewolf

            Dude, do you know how old Calvin and Hobbes are? Calvin should be in his thirties, and yet he is only six. And don’t get me started on Garfield and cats lifespans. Comic characters live as long as the author writes them.

  47. Sperkle

    The Actor Dog looks to be a Golden YAY

    Go figure the zipper gets stuck tho

  48. CaptainPea

    I personally feel bad for Roger.

  49. LethalKitsuneWarrior

    LOL, great work as usual!

    Where I’m at it’s 0030 (12:30 am) and will be first to say this “Happy Thanksgiving!”

    • Firewolf

      Hawaii? Dang, I live in Cali so it’s 10:20pm…can’t say “it” yet.

      • Inu225

        Are sure your talking about the right time zone?
        I live in Hawaii and it’s still November 24 10:10 pm.

        • Firewolf

          Eh, I had it backwards. happy Tanks Givin! =D

      • FinalSilence

        Sorry Firewolf, but I live in Kentucky.

        • Firewolf

          Wrongs time configurations…whoops. HAPPY TANKS GIVIN! =D

    • Frank

      The Housepets! server is in Central Standard Time, or UTC-6. When FinalSilence posted, he stated he is 13 hours ahead of CST, or UTC+7 (Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, etc)

      Hawaii is 4 hours behind CST, or UTC-10 (which confirms Inu’s comment that at 14:00 hours, CST it is 10:00 hours HAST)

      Oh and Firewolf, “it.” There, I said it! :)

      • Frank

        Okay, so I got it horribly wrong because I didn’t read the “AM/PM” part

        • dalonewolf25

          Huh…Could’ve sworn i said “It” already…huh, bad internet connection, I guess…

          Remember to be thankful for the readily available farm turkeys, as well as the pre-made witch effigies, conveniently located next to each other in your local supermarket!

    • silverfang16

      Well, the parade went by and I didn’t see the commercial, poor Rock.

    • LethalKitsuneWarrior

      Happy Turkey Day to you too, Final.

    • FinalSilence

      Not mangled, just beefy. But no dog will ever be as beefy as Kevin!

  55. The Wolf Next Door
