    ouch poor peanut

    • ZV

      alt-text: “snow is tasty but not all at once”

      • dalonewolf25

        *facepalm* Ok, that was expected…

      • fuzzycomicguy

        I’m curious as to why people feel the need to state the alt-text..when it is clearly readable via: mouse over. Sorry for picking on you ZV, but i always see it in the comments for every comic…it just strikes me as redundant.

        • Ressy

          I read housepets on my ipod so I can never see the alt text… I love the fact that the alt txt are now posted in comments~ So yeah, a big thanks to everyone who’s posting the alt-text! Thanks!

          • Ressy

            Blah… Mistyped email…

          • dalonewolf25

            Yes, this is the main reason we do such. It also saves Rick a little bit more work by not making him write it down on the author’s comment area also. Originally, however, if you look at the past strips, specifically before the introduction of Spo-in-a-box, the alt-text was the title of the comic strip, so in that case, it did help a bit, but it made the comic strips have elongated names for no good reason…

        • atheren

          I read the comic on my palm pre, so I am quite happy for the alt text being posted. It alows me to read the comic on the bus rather than having to wait all day to get home to a computer.

        • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

          I completely agree with you fuzzycomic guy. you get hero of the day… Unless the janitor air guitars again

          • madmoney

            your janitor air guitars…………..
            COOL I WHISH MY JANITOR WOULD OD THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

            He has an ipod, and this one time he walked in in the middle of Master of Puppets by Metallica, and he thought the room was empty, and he was all air guitaring, and it was the best Math class eva

        • iHavezMyBirdo

          Oh, right, I totally forgot what alt text was, and I put them in images myself :l

          For the past comics I was wondering where they were getting that from. I never bothered to ask Google, or a person.

    • Naylorfan90

      All I gotta say is, King with a Christmas hat added is win.

  2. dalonewolf25

    Awww…fatherly moment…

    • dalonewolf25

      Alt-Text: Snow is tasty, but not all at once.

      • Keldor

        Hmm. Could this be the new “First!” trend? He who posts the alt-text first wins? XD

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          well the mods somtimes get at us fer doin stuff
          dats wai no1’s like “OMG FIRST!!!” anymore ;P

        • WingedWolfGirl

          *face Palms*

        • Sleet

          Some people have browsers, particularly mobile ones, that cannot display alt text. It’s a courtesy thing.

        • dalonewolf25

          I hope this doesn’t become an issue later on, or else, we will have to have some moderation involved…
          *Besides that…*
          Don’t you get brainfreeze and heartburn if you eat snow all at once? Poor puppy gonna catch a cold…

  3. Alex M.

    Awww…. Peanut wants a cookie in panel 2.

    • dalonewolf25

      *om nom nom* Wait, this isn’t a cookie! *bleh*

      • Alex M.

        “It taste like…….cold!”

        • 2MK

          • dalonewolf25

            @2MK: Because they’re really interesting characteristics of the characters…
            @Pokeblue: Because it was expected by the majority of the regulars?
            @BeatReaktor: Aww, I’m pretty sure you can do better than what I did! Think of something original…
            @Professor Rod: I think we’re gonna run out of internets, someday…

      • Ryufire

        Oh gravy Dalone your avatar, I knew that would happen lol!

        • dalonewolf25

          Unexpected things start becoming a little bit too expected, though…
          …gravy?

          • FinalSilence

            Is it instant with water?

          • Ryufire

            LOL I was watching Ed Edd Eddy it just popped in my head!

          • dalonewolf25

            I KNEW it was a reference to that!

    Ahaha peanut’s dad is so mean. xDD

    • ReCreate

      err i meant owner O.o

      • Inu225

        Dad. Owner.
        Tomato. Tomato.

        Also, yeah he can be cruel.

        • Elwood Blutarsky

          Earl’s just got a sense of humor.

          • xhunterko

            *Mr.Sandwich
            (as far as the comic goes, his name has not been mentioned, so it could be anything…sandwich realated, that is)

          • Elwood Blutarsky

            I could have swore it was confirmed as being Earl.

          • SamBlob

            @xhunterko
            It was established as Earl a year and a half ago: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/06/17/unspilled-milk/

          • FinalSilence

            And it’s still sandwich related… Earl of Snadwich

          • FinalSilence

            *Sandwich

          • xhunterko

            Hmm, I forgot about that then. Sorry, my bad.

  8. xhunterko

    *reads comic*

    *claps slowly*

  9. IceKitsune

    lol that was great and (sorry to get in to this) but does that mean if either Peanut and Grape have kids they would keep them?

    • ctcmjh

      No, because cats and dogs can’t make kids.

      Yes, I just had to ruin this moment, Icy. XD

      • Private Elliot

        >:C

      • IceKitsune

        har har har you know what I mean

        • Snow

          if cats and dogs can cross breed you would think we would see some already :p

          • FinalSilence

            Or we can blame the fact that most of the pets here don’t believe in interspecies relationships, except for Peanut, Fido, and Joey.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            And King when he’s drunk.

      • BeatReaktor

        They can’t!? oh… Oooooh… that explains alot.. mhm.

      • SamBlob

        True, only goats have kids.

    • IceKitsune

      *smacks forehead* I meant If Peanut OR Grape have kids not and

      • BeatReaktor

        you should consider a career in genetic engineering… prove us wrong son.. prove us wrong. :P

        • silverfang16

          God don’t. Bleh! -_-

          • BeatReaktor

            Don’t listen to him IceKitsune he’s trying to crush your dreams! lol

            Hey! Hey! Hey! What are you, nuts? You can’t put Peanuts in with the Grapes! The Grapes don’t mind having pillow fights, but the Peanuts will be camping in cold ponds.
            Rule number 1: keep the Canines away from the Felines. If you work it right, you’ll have pups and kittens! But only if you play by the rules…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            So Peanuts and Grapes aren’t Bosons, because they’re subject to the Pauli Exclusion Principle.

          • Aeonera

            @ Frank
            breaders? Dont you mean breeders?

      • Frank

        That was what you said. Don’t pay attention to the shippers; they like to misinterpret things.

    Score board: Human:1 Dog: 0

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Go Humanity!

      • SamBlob

        Interesting how being human has so little to do with being humane.

        • Frank

          What’s inhumane about giving your dog a bit of water?

          • madmoney

            becuse its solid water

          • WingedWolfGirl

            Mr. Sandwich thought it was a gas.

          • Frank

            A gas! God, I laughed so hard!

            @madmoney: he couldn’t've bitten it if it wasn’t solid!

    • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

      Hey, i’m a human, my team’s winning! Woo!

  11. ctcmjh

    I love how the snow makes his mouth all blue!

  12. Inu225

    I never actually seen snow before or gotten into a snow fight.
    I can only assume it must be fun.
    (-_-)… One of these days will see snow…

    • Alex M.

      I concur with you, the bad thing about living near the coast….
      -_-”

      • Inu225

        Agreed. I don’t live near the coast though. I live on an island and the only thing similar to snow fights for me are sand fights.

        • Alex M.

          I live in near the coast, a really warm one. The more “cold” ever was about 5° or 6°C. And yes sand fights are funny, but not when you have sand in your mouth and eyes.

          • Inu225

            LOL
            Now I want Rick to make a sand version of this comic. XD

          • Alex M.

            Yeah, he should for the people who had never touched or saw snow.

        • Frank

          (Packs a snowball in a cooler, mails it to Hawaii)
          To throw at your significant other… and tick her off

      • BeatReaktor

        yea.. we don’t see snow up in LA either.

        • Frank

          Move to Florida! Last year they had pretty much the same weather except for that one day when it snowed. The best of both worlds!

          • madmoney

            no it had ice on the beach
            *looks out window*
            plaes snow one more time

    • xhunterko

      Correct me if I’m wrong, but if your on the coast your only about a 4-5 hour drive away from any mountain. Go out more.

      • Alex M.

        I must go more up of the Tropic of Cancer to start seeing snow…

        • xhunterko

          Herm, that does present a problem for then. Stil, just guessing, that’s only a plane ride away. Or try going to New Zealand. I hear it’s nice there.

          • Frank

            Have you seen the price of jet fuel lately?


            ’cause I haven’t

      • Inu225

        Um again… I live on an island… -_-
        *cries*

    • SamBlob

      Snow = freezing or sub-freezing weather. No thank you. Will stay warm here in Jamaica.

      • Naylorfan90

        Snow is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence!

        • madmoney

          u live JA nice how has it bine with all the rain

        • Snow

          mehehehehee

    • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

      It’s not fun, it sucks. I’ve been living in America for 4 years and I hate it. Back in Chile, t was ALWAYS warm

      • Argent Stonecutter

        So why do they call it Chilly then?

        • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

          The correct spelling is Chile, and it was named after the sound a local bird makes

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I Did Not Know That. That’s a better reason than most to name a country. I wish mine was.

            Good thing it wasn’t a mockingbird. Wakkawakkawakkabeepbeepbeepceepwheeeyaya would never fit on the maps.

  13. Fuzzypaws

    Snow is chiefly tasty when adulterated by liquid sugar and food coloring :3

    • Ryufire

      As long as its not yellow looking!

      • Alex M.

        Pineapple snow!

        • Manface

          For some reason, that avatar makes me go over everything you say in song…

      • Snow

        i luv that two :D

      • Frank

        *eats a snow cone while he reads this*

  14. Ryufire

    All he needs is a snow ball launcher! “Hey dad guess what?” “What“?! PEW PEW

    No wait…, Mr. Sandwich might expect that!

  15. Pseudo Faux

    You know, this is the second example of “You’ll remember this and treat your kids the same way, and you will enjoy it because you had it hard” that I’ve seen today.

    • dalonewolf25

      Moral of the Story: Your children are no different than how you were when you were a kid; neither are your parents to how you are now (if you ever become a parent someday, this will keep being valid to you).

  16. Rider098

    That face in panel 4? That right there is brain freeze. Ouch! XD

  17. Pokeblue

    Lol, what a mean trick. Peanut looks kinda cute in panel 1.

  18. rtlstien

    Peanut with pups? How old is Peanut again and how old do pets live in this universe? Do they live the same amount of time like regular humans?
    I’m sure his pups would be funny, smart, and adorable just like him

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      They’ve got double their normal lifespan so Peanut would have about 20-25 years instead of 10-12. How old anyone is never gets mentioned (this isn’t a strip where the characters age noticably anyway).

      • xhunterko

        I’m gonna go waaaaay out on a limb here and speculate. The comic began in 2008. So that puts 2 years on his age as of now already. As some have mentioned in the one offs, the characters have been acting like teenagers. So, in dog years accoding to the comic (as far as I’ve seen) that would roughly place Peanut at 4-5. Which would place Grape at 3-4, since she’s a year younger. I’m guessting more 4 than 5 though. Since I think, 6 is pretty much an adult at least according to “Housepets: Remnants of the American Nomad”. So, that’s my guess.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      If you read Sabrina’s story being serialized in the Doghouse she says pets can live up to 40 years.

  19. cesarinthewhitedragon

    holy blue tongue batman!

  20. ben

    Don’t let this happen to you, order Canine Cibble today

    • Rayne

      YES canine cibble has everything to do with everything

    • Frank

      Best! Comment! Yet!

  21. Elwood Blutarsky

    Mr. Sandwich returns after a long absence. The pets are the stars but their human owners are still quite good for a laugh.

  22. silverfang16

    Peanut! Don’t take that, get revenge! Not that the concept exists in his mind.

    • Firewolf

      Never impale a guy with a snow ball who…
      1. Can you ground you for life.
      2. Can put you on a leash.
      3. Is over twice your size.
      4. Was most likely King of Pranking in his “younger days.”

      • silverfang16

        That’s why you do it SECRETLY.

        • Profesor Rod

          You just don’t sneak attack the King of Pranking. It would be easier to walk into Mordor.

          • Rocket Knight boy

            one does not simply walk into mordor!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Ask me about the trouble tickets we got when one of our servers was still called “mordor”.

          • Rayne

            Don’t you know you have to dance into mordor

          • Dissension

            Argent Stonecutter, tell me about the trouble tickets you got when one of your servers was still called “mordor.”

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I will just note that one does not simply ssh in to mordor.

          • Naylorfan90

            My goodness I love this whole group.

          • silverfang16

            Ironically that’s exactly what they did, walked in.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Alas, Mordor was running Windows.

      • SamBlob

        That’s right.

        Conspire with an expert on how to BURY the guy in snow instead.

        Where would Peanut find an expert? All he has to do is shout her name and wake her up…

  23. Firewolf

    STILL LOLING!! THAT’S GREAT! Plus, something I can even understand. =P Peanut is so innocent, it’s comics like these that make me think that Peanut has the voice of a ten year old.

    (Pink, to blue…I wanna blueberry snowcone)

    • ZV

      yep, viewed this comic at least 10 times already

      and peanut’s facial expressions always make him look so innocently cute <3

  24. Stainless Steel Fox

    If the world ran on Disney genetics, then Grape and Peanut could have kids, the boys would look like Peanut, the girls like Grape. Of course, it’s far more lilkely that Grape and Max will have kids, or Peanut and the oracle girl (I wonmder if they’d get any of their mother’s powers).

    • silverfang16

      Disney had issues……

      Tarot+Peanut puppies= epic cuteness

      • FinalSilence

        “Had”? Are you sure it isn’t has? Go back to Walt time. Those were the best.

        • silverfang16

          I love the older Disney movies.

          • FinalSilence

            Trying to find Fantasia on Blu-Ray. That is the best movie ever.

          • Firewolf

            Disney was a genius. It was his annoying Nephews and such that destroyed everything.

    • Rayne

      Or if it was sonic which according to the comics will just be the gender of the male.

      • Frank

        Uh… isn’t “gender of the male” redundant?

        • Rayne

          I meant to say species of the male

          Or in pokemon its the species of the female

    • Frank

      “Aww! Kids are so cute when they think all mammals have the same number of chromosomes!”

      • dalonewolf25

        -.- I actually thought that once when I was a kid…

      • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

        In Housepets! they do, they even have thumbs

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I don’t think there’s any evidence that different species of humanoid animals in HP! are genetically compatible. In fact, it’s unlikely, or by now there would be oddball crossbreeds all over the place.

  25. Clairvoyant Legacy

    +1 internets.

  26. Celysus

    Looks like Peanut developed a nasty case of purplemouth from that ice.

    • BeatReaktor

      ya lol, I’ve developed a pretty bad case of cottonmouth as well! :D

  27. FrostDemn

    “Baf” is an appropriate sound for snow hitting something, but I always found “PLAF!” to be a better sound effect for a snowball to the face.

  28. Death himself

    PEANUT IS NOT FIXED?
    FFFFFFFFFFF

    • Profesor Rod

      I don’t think in Housepets universe fixing your pets would be OK…
      Certainly they’re more intelligent than their counterparts on our world and they can decide about having family, for the most time.

      • FinalSilence

        Could you imagine having to live with that? A fixed, Anthromorphic, pet?
        “By the way, thanks again for that!”

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          e.o…….. oh mai gawd…. that would be like fixing a human…………………………. it’s just not rite! >.<

    • dalonewolf25

      frozen fugdesickles, anyone? I think none of the pets are fixed…hopefully…

      • SamBlob

        Except maybe Bino.

        • Profesor Rod

          That would be doing the world a big favor XD

      • Firewolf

        lol, I want a Frozen Fudgesickles! =D (u do wat i do all d time, nice save)

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Remember the “I want to have your poppues” sign?

      I suspect whether pets get routinely fixed depends on the jurisdiction.

      There’s much fridge horror waiting if you keep thinking about this.

    • J.J.

      Well, if there substitutes for children… who in their right mind would have their children spayed or neutered!?

      Oh.. the (cough) Humanity.

    Peanut’s mouth looks excellent, all open like that.

    Also, I just noticed that you don’t use shading with Housepets for this comic, yet it still looks awesome particularly with those tiny spikes of fur on the side. I am now inspired to color my sketches. Thank you very much.

    Brainfreeze at a rapid speed, I empathise.

  33. Kitch

    And exactly HOW is that supposed to be funny if Peanut has pups?

    • FinalSilence

      Then he can pull the same tricks on them and realize how funny it really is.

    • xhunterko

      Or Earl will go, ‘I remember one time me and Peanut were out in the snow..’
      Peanut: ‘Dad! That’s still not funny!’

      Or something.

  36. Argent Stonecutter

    We don’t get to see the animals acting like animals all that often.

  37. gaboris

    Heh I played like that with our dog back in my free summers, I just used a hose to sprinkle water on him. He just loved it. X)
    But yeah playing fetch with a snowball might be fun. :D

  38. FinalSilence

    Running through Peanuts mind:
    Panel 1: Oh, boy, a game of fetch!
    Panel 2: I’ve got it! I’ve got it!
    Panel 3: OMGWTF?!
    Panel 4: That’s not funny!
    5 seconds later: AAAAHHHH!!! BRAINFREEZE!!!

  39. Avansis

    Someday Rick will kill me with cuteness overdose.

  40. Rayne

    So is snow made of the same stuff as jawbreakers, cuz if it is peanuts gonna have a screwed up mouth for a long time.

  41. Pokeartkid

    Heh, that’s what me and my dog play all the time! She seems to enjoy it though.

  42. Pilli10

    I posted a video of me doing this on my alt account on youtube yesterday. My dog gets frustrated because she can’t catch the snow; it turns to water in her mouth.

  43. Demi Bank

    Don’t eat the yellow snow.

    • Whitekitsune

      Is that Tezcatlipoca? o.o Just wonderin’

      And do people really..y’know..pee in snow all that often? I can’t imagine doing anything in a temperature that cold.

      • Snow

        whaaat its only around -5 – 10 in canada :p

      • Alex M.

        Don’t call Quetzalcóatl!

          Huitzilpocthli has a warm place in his heart for you.

          Actually, no, he’s got a warm place in your heart.

          Wanna see it?

          • Alex M.

            Yes…..
            >.>

          • Argent Stonecutter

            “Panquetzaliztli (7 December to 26 December) was the Aztec month dedicated to Huitzilopochtli. People decorated their homes and trees with paper flags; there were ritual races, processions, dances, songs, prayers, and finally human sacrifices.” — WIkipedia

            Still want to be shown the warm place in your heart? :D

          • Alex M.

            I must say Yes.

      • Frank

        People still walk their dogs when it’s snowed. I won’t go into further detail

  44. APERSON WHO COMMENTS

    BOOM HEADSHOT

  45. APERSON WHO COMMENTS

    By the way, the best game is THE GAME

    • Argent Stonecutter

      That’s the one where everyone goes “oh noes I losted” and I win their socks?

      • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

        Yes, that the one, there’s no way to win it, but you CAN do a little better each time :D

        • Rocket Knight boy

          How cruel would it be if you played THE GAME all your life, there you are lying on your death bed when someone close to you whispers “i have a confession to make…i lost the game”

          “YOU SON OF B…GAH BLECK…KHUUH!”
          –flatline—

          • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

            Me: Son Come closer
            Son: Yes dad?
            Me: I lived a long life, and I have a confession
            Son: Tell me so you can rest in peace
            Me: THE GAME *COUGH* *Dies*
            Son: FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

          • Naylorfan90

            You made me lol. >.> Really.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Ferrets play the other game. When you lose the game, we get your socks. Total win!

          • Z24

            Still with the socks thing?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Of course! I has my priorities!

  53. Z24

    That’s hypothermia right there XD

    If it was Pete/King, I’d feel he’d put a rock inside the snowball ><

  54. Asteri

    funny, I’ve actually done this to my dog and she froze with her mouth open + confused of what just happened.

  55. Lax

    Buwahahahaha! Perfect aim, that guy :D

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I think Peanut has the doggy “catch it in your mouth” reflex, even though he has thumbs.

    Much better…

    Anyway, it is good to see more Christmas strips.
    I would like to eat snow, but my cousin in the US said “BUT DO NOT eat yellow snow!”

    23 More days for Christmas! you guys better have a good time that day or you will receive the Mexican Nutcracker (The Mexican Nutcracker is NOT pretty and it comes in different ways)

    • Frank

      *Bugs Bunny plants a huge kiss on Russiarules1, exits stage left*

      About the yellow snow thing, I think it’s a reference to Brother Bear.

      • FinalSilence

        I’ve heard before that movie… Still love the movie though.

      • xhunterko

        Actually, while it might be, it’s a much, much older saying than that. My siblings and I were told not to eat the yellow snow. Anyone who owns a dog knows why. Or, it may be other random animals or cats even. That is why you do not eat the yellow snow.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        …and rub it all into his beady little eyes with a vigorous circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this area, but destined to take the place of the mudshark in your mythology…

    • LethalKitsuneWarrior

      You know, I had a friend named Steven once, and his older brother used to make “yellow snow”, then shove his face into it until he ate it D:

    • Russiarules1

      And I forgot this one:
      “BOOM HEADSHOT!”
      I want some ice-cream

    Snowball to the head.

    Too bad for Peanut.

    • SonictheHedgehog125

      I mean, to the face, not head.

      • madmoney

        you mean mouth

        • SonictheHedgehog125

          i know

  64. Amai

    All I can say is…that guy has a good aim if he can throw a snowball into Peanut’s mouth like that. Bravo o.o he should be pitching for the cubs

  65. anthroguy101

    Foreshadowing, maybe?

  66. MrMutt

    Yankee, my GSD, would enthusiastically exchange places with Peanut for that.

  67. namelessone

    nice

  68. lucamaster

    i have wanted to do this since i first saw king, many things i have to say are too corny to admit, but all i’ll say is, king is my muse, more of hime please (i know, i’m sad that i’m lame enough to ask you to make a comic, i’m ashamed, but it’s true, i have no drive, please, don’t hound me about how pathetic i am, i don’t ned anyone else to tell me that)

  69. ^_^

    Lol when i read this the first time i thought he said “Believe me, if you ever have pups i will die.” I was all wtf till the next day when i read it again.

  70. Elkian

    XD His mouth is blue.

  71. Radio Viewer

    I’ve never touched snow before.

    Is it the same as shaved ice?

    • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

      It sucks

    • Frank

      Snow is crystalized water vapor. You know when a freezer starts getting a thick layer of frost on the walls? That’s technically snow (supposing you don’t let it melt and refreeze)

      • Radio Viewer

        But it looks fluffy… The one on the freezer walls is usually hard ice :|

        • Frank

          You’re letting melt and refreze then.

    • LethalKitsuneWarrior

      Snow is like holding baby powder, but it’s kind of watery and it’s colder. VERY NICE!!!! :D

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Shaved ice is kind of like old packed snow. Fresh snow is like heavy soap bubbles, except it’s cold.

  72. ZincChloride

    I love how is mouth is blue and all. lol

  73. LethalKitsuneWarrior

    @dalonewolf: FinalSilence said you were good with animated avis, can you help me out? I made a project and I was wanting to make it an animated avi. Here’s a link (yes, I did animate this myself): http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/EmoTailsDoll_64/1446432
    Thanks :D

    • dalonewolf25

      Will do, although don’t expect me to be a real good pro at it, but I will give my heart on it…are you on the forums? If so, PM me there, ok?

  74. Crazy-8

    there sure are alot of animals that wear scarfs…which is cool, scarfs are totally awesome, I love scarfs

  75. iHavezMyBirdo

    Good aim, dad~

  76. The Wolf Next Door

    That’s cruel (T_T) but that fetching face is so adorable!

  77. Ryu Darragh

    Hehe… my “Peanut” dearly loved thrown snowballs. He’d chase them and try to catch them like that before they hit the ground. He’d act dissapointed if they did! I guess that german shepherds are made of sterner stuff than poor Peanut… his name was Baillif, so I guess that fits :P

  78. Wilson

    OK, weird question but does that mean that Peanut has not been neutered, I just assumed that most pets in this strip had been fixed.

    • Ryu Darragh

      I don’t believe so. If I were responsible for a sentient non-human, I’d be very reluctant to try and control their behaviour with surgery any more than I would on behalf of my children. Although, considering some of the little monsters I have met…

  79. Hoheh

    Parental pranks? That’s deviously delightful.

  80. Lupus

    HEY finally lol usually when i try to leave comments I cant ever it wont let me But I LOVE YOUR COMIC OMG OMG OMG YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please also if i get an avi can i have dog of some form not a cat person
