ouch poor peanut
alt-text: “snow is tasty but not all at once”
*facepalm* Ok, that was expected…
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.
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!
Blah… Mistyped email…
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…
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.
I completely agree with you fuzzycomic guy. you get hero of the day… Unless the janitor air guitars again
your janitor air guitars…………..
COOL I WHISH MY JANITOR WOULD OD THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!
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
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.
Well, now you know! E|:D
All I gotta say is, King with a Christmas hat added is win.
Alt-Text: Snow is tasty, but not all at once.
Hmm. Could this be the new “First!” trend? He who posts the alt-text first wins? XD
well the mods somtimes get at us fer doin stuff
dats wai no1’s like “OMG FIRST!!!” anymore ;P
Some people have browsers, particularly mobile ones, that cannot display alt text. It’s a courtesy thing.
I hope this doesn’t become an issue later on, or else, we will have to have some moderation involved…
Don’t you get brainfreeze and heartburn if you eat snow all at once? Poor puppy gonna catch a cold…
Awww…. Peanut wants a cookie in panel 2.
*om nom nom* Wait, this isn’t a cookie! *bleh*
“It taste like…….cold!”
Why is there avatars that has open mouths?
I’ma firin’ ma lazar!!!
That avatar of Dalonewolf’s, how did I not see that coming?
awww bro! you beat me to it! lol
guess I’ll just close paint. :’(
You win 1 internets! XD
@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…
… ai'm not sure wut dat pic has to do wit de intenetz prize…….. like de pic inside de pic
Well it was only a matter of time lol
how did u find a pic of penut and grape kissing
It’s “Fido and Sabrina colored over to match their fur coloring”
Fan-made by the forum-goers, by the way
i saw that one but that is really grape there
Oh gravy Dalone your avatar, I knew that would happen lol!
Unexpected things start becoming a little bit too expected, though…
Is it instant with water?
LOL I was watching Ed Edd Eddy it just popped in my head!
I KNEW it was a reference to that!
You won’t understand yet, it’s a father thing.
You win a cookie
Dont listen to him! he’s about to throw a snowball at you!
No, it’s a *blah*
Here ya go!
*gives cookie to Zaneko*
WTF? Your lazor fires cookies?
Cookies have almost as short a wavelength as kittens.
No way! Someone wrote that?
Either someone wrote it, or it spontaneously appeared due to Heisenberg’s Theorem.
And I don’t think snow is tasty XD
Best. Game. Ever…. Of all time
Ahaha peanut’s dad is so mean. xDD
err i meant owner O.o
Also, yeah he can be cruel.
Earl’s just got a sense of humor.
(as far as the comic goes, his name has not been mentioned, so it could be anything…sandwich realated, that is)
I could have swore it was confirmed as being Earl.
It was established as Earl a year and a half ago: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/06/17/unspilled-milk/
And it’s still sandwich related… Earl of Snadwich
Hmm, I forgot about that then. Sorry, my bad.
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?
No, because cats and dogs can’t make kids.
Yes, I just had to ruin this moment, Icy. XD
har har har you know what I mean
if cats and dogs can cross breed you would think we would see some already :p
Or we can blame the fact that most of the pets here don’t believe in interspecies relationships, except for Peanut, Fido, and Joey.
And King when he’s drunk.
They can’t!? oh… Oooooh… that explains alot.. mhm.
True, only goats have kids.
Heheh, I see what you did there.
*smacks forehead* I meant If Peanut OR Grape have kids not and
you should consider a career in genetic engineering… prove us wrong son.. prove us wrong.
God don’t. Bleh! -_-
Don’t listen to him IceKitsune he’s trying to crush your dreams! lol
Yea that’s it. It’s not the profession at all!
and Tiglons and Zebroids, Oh my! Watch your step, there’s breaders in here! With Cibblesoft’s Hybrid Tycoon
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…
So Peanuts and Grapes aren’t Bosons, because they’re subject to the Pauli Exclusion Principle.
breaders? Dont you mean breeders?
That was what you said. Don’t pay attention to the shippers; they like to misinterpret things.
Oh god, fanfics.
*starts writing one down*
*looks around shiftily then joins Dalonewolf*
Ze fanfic crown shall be mine!
Nervously joins the other two.
Hate ‘em or love ‘em. We still read them…or am I alone on that?
let the shipping comince
Ehem, don’t you mean:
“Avast me hearties! Hoist the sails and weigh ancor!”
“There comes a point in every man’s life when he must be tempted to spit on his hands, hoist the Jolly Roger, and start writing fanfic.”
No, let it stop. Right now. Or people’s commenting rights go out of the door. The shipping and fanfics do not belong here, got it?
Score board: Human:1 Dog: 0
Interesting how being human has so little to do with being humane.
What’s inhumane about giving your dog a bit of water?
becuse its solid water
Mr. Sandwich thought it was a gas.
A gas! God, I laughed so hard!
@madmoney: he couldn’t've bitten it if it wasn’t solid!
Hey, i’m a human, my team’s winning! Woo!
Edward or Jacob?
NO. NO. NO. NO. NO.
Zombies or Unicorns?
Kozmic or Cosmic?
Edward or Jacob? I’ll have to go with a slow and painful death
I never heard of that team.
Heard of team push ‘em both off a cliff? that’s my favorite.
I love how the snow makes his mouth all blue!
I don’t think he does
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…
I concur with you, the bad thing about living near the coast….
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.
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.
Now I want Rick to make a sand version of this comic. XD
Yeah, he should for the people who had never touched or saw snow.
(Packs a snowball in a cooler, mails it to Hawaii)
To throw at your significant other… and tick her off
are you kidding, it would probaly be the most amazing thing ever to them
yea.. we don’t see snow up in LA either.
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!
no it had ice on the beach
*looks out window*
plaes snow one more time
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.
I must go more up of the Tropic of Cancer to start seeing snow…
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.
Have you seen the price of jet fuel lately?
’cause I haven’t
Um again… I live on an island… -_-
I wish I did.
Weren’t you in the UK?
Never been there in my life.
Aww. Not even for the sake of the joke?
Snow = freezing or sub-freezing weather. No thank you. Will stay warm here in Jamaica.
Snow is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence!
u live JA nice how has it bine with all the rain
All I’ve got left is my bones…
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
So why do they call it Chilly then?
The correct spelling is Chile, and it was named after the sound a local bird makes
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.
Snow is chiefly tasty when adulterated by liquid sugar and food coloring :3
As long as its not yellow looking!
For some reason, that avatar makes me go over everything you say in song…
Say it with me:
Joins Tiger and Alex M:
Shave Ice is really good.
Especially with azumi beans and condensed milk. : D
…Now I’m hungry
i luv that two
*eats a snow cone while he reads this*
All he needs is a snow ball launcher! “Hey dad guess what?” “What“?! PEW PEW
No wait…, Mr. Sandwich might expect that!
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.
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).
That face in panel 4? That right there is brain freeze. Ouch! XD
Lol, what a mean trick. Peanut looks kinda cute in panel 1.
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
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).
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.
If you read Sabrina’s story being serialized in the Doghouse she says pets can live up to 40 years.
holy blue tongue batman!
Don’t let this happen to you, order Canine Cibble today
YES canine cibble has everything to do with everything
Best! Comment! Yet!
Mr. Sandwich returns after a long absence. The pets are the stars but their human owners are still quite good for a laugh.
Peanut! Don’t take that, get revenge! Not that the concept exists in his mind.
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.”
That’s why you do it SECRETLY.
You just don’t sneak attack the King of Pranking. It would be easier to walk into Mordor.
one does not simply walk into mordor!
Ask me about the trouble tickets we got when one of our servers was still called “mordor”.
Don’t you know you have to dance into mordor
Argent Stonecutter, tell me about the trouble tickets you got when one of your servers was still called “mordor.”
I will just note that one does not simply ssh in to mordor.
My goodness I love this whole group.
Ironically that’s exactly what they did, walked in.
Alas, Mordor was running Windows.
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…
The cubs. King. Snow. I’ve got a good feeling about this.
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)
yep, viewed this comic at least 10 times already
and peanut’s facial expressions always make him look so innocently cute <3
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).
Disney had issues……
Tarot+Peanut puppies= epic cuteness
“Had”? Are you sure it isn’t has? Go back to Walt time. Those were the best.
I love the older Disney movies.
Trying to find Fantasia on Blu-Ray. That is the best movie ever.
Disney was a genius. It was his annoying Nephews and such that destroyed everything.
Or if it was sonic which according to the comics will just be the gender of the male.
Uh… isn’t “gender of the male” redundant?
I meant to say species of the male
Or in pokemon its the species of the female
“Aww! Kids are so cute when they think all mammals have the same number of chromosomes!”
-.- I actually thought that once when I was a kid…
I wish I lived on Jean too.
In Housepets! they do, they even have thumbs
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.
Looks like Peanut developed a nasty case of purplemouth from that ice.
ya lol, I’ve developed a pretty bad case of cottonmouth as well!
“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.
PEANUT IS NOT FIXED?
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.
Could you imagine having to live with that? A fixed, Anthromorphic, pet?
“By the way, thanks again for that!”
e.o…….. oh mai gawd…. that would be like fixing a human…………………………. it’s just not rite! >.<
frozen fugdesickles, anyone? I think none of the pets are fixed…hopefully…
Except maybe Bino.
That would be doing the world a big favor XD
lol, I want a Frozen Fudgesickles! =D (u do wat i do all d time, nice save)
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.
*Fills Argent’s fridge with snow*
Sorry, couldn’t resist
Your avatar is appropriate.
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.
Shading is used only when it’s needed
awww poor peanut (gives him a hug & cookie)
Ah…. Dad and dog bonding~ |3
You just reminded me of DeDeDe…
DaD and Dog bonding…only time will tell…
Is that a reference to the anime show?
thatll be the kirby games n anime..
King Dedede or how i like to callem King Dedoda :p
Some good ol’ D&D.
Brainfreeze at a rapid speed, I empathise.
And exactly HOW is that supposed to be funny if Peanut has pups?
Then he can pull the same tricks on them and realize how funny it really is.
Or Earl will go, ‘I remember one time me and Peanut were out in the snow..’
Peanut: ‘Dad! That’s still not funny!’
POW! right in the kisser!
*Enter Bugs Bunny, plants a huge kiss on Rocket Knight Boy, skips away*
this strip actually made me laugh out loud
We don’t get to see the animals acting like animals all that often.
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.
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!!!
Your pic fits the brainfreeze soooo much.
*snowball in your mouth*
oh whoops, you were wanting BBQ weren’t you?
BRAINFREEEZE!!!! IT’S SO COLD!!!
Someday Rick will kill me with cuteness overdose.
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.
Heh, that’s what me and my dog play all the time! She seems to enjoy it though.
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.
Don’t eat the yellow snow.
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.
whaaat its only around -5 – 10 in canada :p
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?
“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?
I must say Yes.
People still walk their dogs when it’s snowed. I won’t go into further detail
By the way, the best game is THE GAME
That’s the one where everyone goes “oh noes I losted” and I win their socks?
Yes, that the one, there’s no way to win it, but you CAN do a little better each time
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!”
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*
You made me lol. >.> Really.
Ferrets play the other game. When you lose the game, we get your socks. Total win!
Still with the socks thing?
Of course! I has my priorities!
heh… fail X3
And… they’re automoderating single links now it seems.
So that’s a ferrets true dream! You want to own everyones socks
Washed or Unwashed?
Socks transcend washing.
link doesn’t work…
I can’t get King out of my head. Would pete make his socks as smelly as a construction workers only to annoy him more?
WHAT DO YOU HAVE AGAINST CONSTRUCTION WORKERS? BOB THE BUILDER WAS ONE
“Can we wash these mud-filled, rust-covered, cement-clad sweat-socks?”
“Yes we can!”
Oh and link does work. Copy the address into the address bar
Well, that’s just MEAN overall!
hahaha wow!!! I’m lol’n x3
My dog likes it when I do this… :’D
*HEADSHOT* indeed o.o
*Giggles.* That was absolutely adorable.
*Pokes comments.* Huh. I would have thought Valerio would have commented by now. No more Valerio?
Earl is mean. Seriously, his mouth went INSTANTLY blue there! D:}
Still, noice. X3;
My dog loved this game actually! lol
That’s hypothermia right there XD
If it was Pete/King, I’d feel he’d put a rock inside the snowball ><
funny, I’ve actually done this to my dog and she froze with her mouth open + confused of what just happened.
Buwahahahaha! Perfect aim, that guy
I think Peanut has the doggy “catch it in your mouth” reflex, even though he has thumbs.
Children. Made for Entertainment.®
PEANUT ISN’T DEAD
Very good written story. It will be valuable to anyone who employess it, as well as yours truly . Keep up the good work – for sure i will check out more posts.
AAWWWWWWWW father son bonding X3!!!!!
I JUST CAN’T HOLD IT, NEED TO SAY IT!!!
POW, Right in the kisser!
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)
*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.
I’ve heard before that movie… Still love the movie though.
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.
…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…
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:
And I forgot this one:
I want some ice-cream
lmao your BIG mouths make me laugh
Happy Game to Brain Freeze In Point five seconds!
Snowball to the head.
Too bad for Peanut.
I mean, to the face, not head.
you mean mouth
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
I think Peanut caught it by doggy reflex.
I think so too…
Yankee, my GSD, would enthusiastically exchange places with Peanut for that.
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)
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.
XD His mouth is blue.
I’ve never touched snow before.
Is it the same as shaved ice?
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)
But it looks fluffy… The one on the freezer walls is usually hard ice
You’re letting melt and refreze then.
Snow is like holding baby powder, but it’s kind of watery and it’s colder. VERY NICE!!!!
Shaved ice is kind of like old packed snow. Fresh snow is like heavy soap bubbles, except it’s cold.
I love how is mouth is blue and all. lol
@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
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?
there sure are alot of animals that wear scarfs…which is cool, scarfs are totally awesome, I love scarfs
Good aim, dad~
That’s cruel (T_T) but that fetching face is so adorable!
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
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.
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…
Parental pranks? That’s deviously delightful.
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
We don’t assign avatars. You pick the avatar you want yourself and you upload it. We have nothing to do with it. Follow Gravatar’s directions
It’s funny because his mouth is blue in the last panel! HA! Blue mouth! XD
