The dream sequence never gets old
“… and by the way, you hadn’t finished your soda…”
I hate it when people do that!
Yeh, you’d think Yggdrasil roots grow on trees.
Now I got confused…
That’s perfectly normal, don’t worry about it.
Sir, you just won 1.000 internets. And yes, that is a period, not a comma. S you only win one. Hahaha, jk. You get… OVER 9000!!!!!!!!!!¡!¡!¡!!!!!¡¡! °—° I made a weird face…
It’s like Enchanted:
“But if we try with another poison apple–”
“What, you think apples grow on trees?”
It never get’s old that’s for sure, but I still hate that policy. For some reason I’m startin to have negative feelings for these spiritual and celestial things. XP
(The story is still great with them Rick, I just like to fight things in my mind. :p)
“Sabrina is not covered in dragon slobber now because magic there I said it.”
Lol I love your avatar.
lol I have to say maybe getting a bit tiring on the whole wake up thing but this one was very good can’t wait for the end on Friday!
pure awesomenes =3
pure awesomesauce :3
lol awesomesauce X3
pure lawlsemsauceness xD
…just kidding guys. EPICSAUCE!!!!!
I find this is getting quite silly.
Grape + the feather?
King + the statue?
Peanut + his scarf?
What next? o_O
it seems they all got some sort of “linked” thing where the big spirits give the living creatures something special..
pete was interested in grape, and gives the feather…
king gets the gift from the kitsune… the statue..
and now the dragon clearly shows love towards peanut, and gets tarot his special scarf..
What’s next is Michael Meyers + his mask & dagger. OH CRAP EVERYBODY RUN!!!
more likely Freddy Kreuger and his Fedora, Sweater, and claws give the whole “dream” thing.
You know, that’s a good question!
You know that kind of true and yet funny. Why bother saying its a dream only to negate it later. Kind of a win win and a fail. I find the policy as funny joke
Wait what? It was a dream but not a dream?
If that’s the case how do I know if I’m dreaming a dream that’s not a dream right now?
Oh my gosh! Where’s my Totem?!
We’re waiting for a train. We’ll be going on a trip…
You never know where the train is going to take you.
The subway train is taking me to Denver… Oh wait, I’m Ina subway RESTURAUNT… THEN WHY DO I HAVE A TICKET TO GO TO DENVER!?!?!?!?!? º___O <– THAT IS THE MOST EPIC HERP DERP FACE EVA!!!
if it’s a midnight train, and you see a small town girl and a city boy, I think I know where it’s going: anywhere.
i had to do a music video on that song for drama. my group thought it would be funny if the boys said the girl’s parts and vice versa.
We Need to go Deeper.
Don’t forget the C-4 for a kick!
Hey! Good morning everyone! what are you doing awake? I’m awake cuz I’m from Spain (Impossible to forget, huh?)
I’m awake because I have to go to school on weekdays.
¡ESPAÑA! *starts dancing flamenco*
But srsly, you don’t want to go too deep into my mind
Was that necessary…? (xD)
No hablo espeñol, porvafor hablo eñglos. (I take latin in school, I love to start talking in Spanish during Latin and annoy the crap out of my teacher. XD)
I’m here because… There is a stroke! (Yay!) And I’m not going to school today
(But busy doing homework…)
Stroke? Do you mean strike?
Waaaa, I’ve readen “Furthia High” and “Scandinavia and the World” today!
But I have to say (It’s real) that I prefer Ricks’ comic (this, of course).
IT’S THE BEST COMIC EVER!
And “reading them” I mean “reading ALL of them”.
I’m awake cuz it’s (was) only 8:00 am at my country (time zone +2)
when did the comic updated?
12 AM US Central time zone which is 5 PM GMT every Mon, Wed, and Fri. you can figure out the update time in your timezone from this.
If you wish to chat with people, the fourms, not the comment thread for the comic is the best place.
OMG What’s your problem with me!?
I don’t have a problem. Not yet anyway. I’m simply stating that for long chats like the ones you like to have, the fourms are the proper place. Most of the same people you enjoy chatting with in the comment thread are all fourm users and that way the comment thread for the comic stays about the comic.
The problem is that IDK how to use forums! Well, I’m not used to use them…
And I don’t want long chats, I only want to know the exact moment when someone comments. I mean, I’m here on weekends like… allways (ok, not really), and I have to refresh this everytime to see if someone has commented something .
Fourms are easy to use.
1-Go here. http://www.housepetscomic.com/forums/index.php
2-Sign up for a account. Follow the directions, it’s very simple
3-Start posting. If you can learn how to sign up and comment in the comic thread, you can learn to use fourms.
Also, the only people who know exactly when someone comments on the comic thread are mods like me and Rick. The feature your looking for is “Ta-da’ a normal feature in the fourms however.
Thank you! I’m making an account just now! And if you need something about translating or anything just tell me!
Well, I’m still Mystic Wolf, but now I’m on forum too now! TY.
I’m glad I could help you.
Was that your Hans Zimmer music impersonation?
If the top doesn’t stop spinning, then it’s a dream.
so so far, every super being/celestial game player has at one point or another done the “it’s a dream! Or was it?” deal.
yep, it’s a “standard celestial policy”
don’t you think they would have a policy about telling that to mortals?
rule number one about the policy: Don’t talk about hte policy.
Why isn’t Sabrina covered in Dragon slobber?
I wonder why no one has done this yet. Oh well, please forgive me if someone posted it up before me.
Alt: “Sabrina is not covered in dragon slobber because magic there I said it”
Yay! Double-decker srtip!!!!
I’ll drink to that
NICE! I’ll call em’ that from now on! …if I remember. XD
I like how Tarot knows exactly what Peanut’s going on about.
In other news, Hey look Peanut and Tarot are in a panel together for once!
Yep its surprising!
Hmm, it has been a while since last time. Wait, when was the last time anyway?
March/April 2010 during the Imaginate Too arc. It’s been a LONG while since the two were on-screen together.
Does anyone else want to huge Tarot as much as I do?
Yes, I want to *hug Tarot, and Peanut, and Grape, and…
OMG They are too cute! I’m getting crazy!
*Blue Brain Of Death*
Gotta Hug ‘Em All!
Heh, +50 internets, I didn’t expect that
I see you got the hang of the “internets” system .
does that take your total down to 92 internets?
I don’t mind, It’s funny.
But I didn’t know that I loose my own internets! (I still don’t mind)
I’m not sure. I think there may be abig pool of internets that anyone can bust into at anytime to give to someone else.
OMG I’ll get the swimming suit! And a bit of O2
OMG I thought it was a joke xD!
Hey, it’s like Sabrina said a few strips back. Just because it’s a joke doesn’t mean it’s not a thing.
what is the internets system?
I see internets like the EXP you win when you do something unexpected and funny/awesome. And that EXP is linked to your awesomeness.
So if you get more internets you are more awesome.
haha never thought of it like that lol but sounds cool X3
You know… Spirit Dragon is about as huge as you could possibly want, why have a huge Tarot as well?
Yea, what’s with the huge Tarot stuff …
Oh shut up!!!
I think that when someone tells you to wake up, you automatically scream
I usually say “wait, what?”
Or you just make a funny face like seeing something weird. ( O.o)
Does the spiritual beings enjoy being so cryptic or is it against celestial policies to be a bit more specific?
Too many spoilers ruin the plot.
Just wait until Sky Coyote starts playing.
They’re only cryptic when they have to talk to mortals
Plus, rule of funny.
Hey, Rick! I got a great idea for a comic!! Tarrot, Grape, Peanut, and Max get trapped in the spirit realm, and Tarrot has to show her true identity! The…SPIRIT DRAGON!!! And the. They all wake up and realize it was a dream, but then realize they all just had the same dreAm and there is a large green scale under each of them! (you can elaborate as much or as little as u want If u take the idea, hahaha)
a little much, don’t you think?
I think Rick has been VERY forthcoming that the Spirit Dragon is not Tarot’s “True Form”. They are two seperate entities that work together.
Think of it as Yugi and the Pharaoh from the original Yugioh, sharing a body but being two individual people. Ya know, before it became all this ‘card games on motorbikes’ nonsense.
It does leave us wondering why Sabrina bothered to bring Peanut up there at all, since nothing was really accomplished, unless the goal was specifically “Hey Peanut, the supernatural exists, and here’s someone you may be seeing more of in the future.”
Baring the Friday strip its basically a set up arc for later, story line wise. Was it maybe a bit long? Yes IMO it was for what it did, but It was over all good. Though again something might come out of Fridays strip you never know.
Peanut got a kiss from a dragon (well ok Sabrina did, but it’s the thought that counts)
I don’t think that really counts as “accomplishing nothing”
I’m not saying that nothing came out of the arc, and I’m not saying that I don’t love any excuse to see Spirit Dragon in the comic (I do), I’m just wondering why Sabrina brought him up; what were her intentions? A kiss from Dragon is nice and all, but I don’t think that’s what she was expecting, otherwise she would have stood back a bit more
Peanut came over to see Tarot, I guess to hang out. Sabrina brought him to her, cuz he wanted to see her.
How’d I know it was gonna do that? Oh well, cool enough. Makes me wonder what’s next.
Least it wasn’t an angry Kitsune statue pulling down his eyelid going “OR WAS IT??”
It’s becoming a running joke at this point, which is a good thing.
Lol, “Here’s your scarf. But make no mistake, it was ALL a dream.”
Lol, “Here’s your scarf. But make no mistake, it was ALL a dream.” XD
Darn it, dbl comment fail.
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Peanuts, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real? “
*squeals and hugs* +100 internets for you!
(looking at panel 3) Don’t you just HATE when some spiritual creature starts to tell you something wise and awesome and in the end (pop) It’s a dream….
Yes I do!
I know dude ,it happened to me last night. Guy saved my life, was about to tell me something important, and “Wake up!” >_<
YAY! I knew that Tarot only protects Peanut! Hahaha! I’m da best
She may care for him!
Tarot/SD do CARE for Peanut! See here http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/07/09/and-nothing-but/
i agree with silverfang16 =l
I agree 2, I was trying to say that xD
Awww, I thought something would be revealed to us…
it might have but we dont know it yet :l
Now, is the policy for local celestial beings or for all higher-plane spirits? And if it’s for everyone, who enforces it? Thus there can be ever-higher levels of irrelevant abstraction.
Um… technically Sabrina and Tarot are from the same plane as Peanut
It seems unlikely that Dragon, the Great Kitsune, and Pete, who state that they deal with infinite numbers of lower-order dimensions simply for a game, are entities of the same order as the Frost Giant – who seems to have a far more local role. There’s also, per Sabrina, rather a lot of mystic dimensions. Ergo, if there’s a policy which covers all of them, on all levels, who is setting and enforcing it? Is it simply a local spiritual policy that the three gamers are obeying to be polite? If it’s part of the game, and doesn’t apply to local spirits, is it a rule set by the Great Kitsune? Does it apply to beings that consider themselves something other than Celestial?
And thus the possibility of ever-higher levels of irrelevant abstraction – irrelevant because such details are unlikely to ever be addressed.
Well, it’s standard celestial policy, so may apply across the board since ‘local’ is always going to be relative to something that exists in another plane entirely. The policy might be in place for a reason (perhaps mortal minds can’t handle too much weird stuff) or it could be a policy established by the celestials because it amuses them. Maybe Great Kitsune enforces it? Or it could simply be self-enforced by long habit.
Rule 0: The GM(in this case, the great kitsune) is god.
It does seem like something he’d do.
alt: sabrina is not covered in dragon slobber because magic there i said it
That’s probably also standard celestial policy
Best excuse ever. Standard Celestial Policy. That will be my excuse from now on.
Nice one, Tarot. Nice.
It feels sort of odd to not have an “OR WAS IT?” at the end. Oh well, at least Tarot was nice enough to say that “Yes it was, also, here’s your scarf, it’s still cold outside so you might need this later”.
its 20X an epic win =D
I’m a little confused, I thought Peanut and Tarot were dating?
i think still or
look at the last one she tryed to kiss him so
mabey the are still together
They are dating …
They’re CARBON dating!
*plays “The Dream Police”*
i dont get it =l
The “or was it a dream” being broken so soon, and the policy reference
in case you dont know, its a song. depending on how old you are, it was probably before your time. Heck, it was before my time!
ah, you warned us that you would make comments about old songs.
I TOLDS YOU!!!
why am i screaming that was not scary
That was my favorite part. I always wondered why people always wake from dreams in comics, TV shows and movies with a wild start. No one ever just opens their eyes groggily, like I always do.
Now I know it’s probably Standard Celestial Policy.
you for got the ^_Q
this manner of speaking in this comment was not that of a fancy gentleman, so there is no need to disturb our be-monocled friend. He is slumbering. -_Q
The prev. dream-souvenir was a giant feather,and now it’s a scarf,I wonder what will it be next time ;D
or maby the kiss from the spirit dragon world be a more proper souvenir…don’t know
Half a bottle of Yggdrasil root beer.
The scarf was his, he just dropped it somewhere
The scarf is also proof though that it was not a dream, because the scarf was left at Tarots place. Which he supposedly visited in the dream. Yet it must not have been a dream, because his scard was still at Tarots.
Do you get it?
you also forgot the kitsune statue left for King to remind him that he wasn’t really dreaming.
Should i even ask?
Its funny that everytime the doorbell rings penut is sprinting to the door. Just like my dog
haha your dogs arent the only ones especcially when u have a small dog that acts like shes top dog =l
would that be “standard canine policy”?
idk i guess X3
Only Rick could do the “dream” thing three times and still have it work perfectly by the third time! XD
it’s because he varied the level to which the “or was it” item negated the “it was a dream” phenomenon. It’s hard to get a higher degree than this though. unless someone is told to wake up, but wakes up in their bed but still in the celestial realm.
Tarot is adorable! I hope we see more of her.
AAAAAAAAAAH WHY AM I SCREAMING THAT WASN’T SCARY
I wants to cuddle with them all!! Tarot Peanut Grape King they are all adorable as heck.
I guess… Joey!
HEY! Por fin te encuentro! Tu eres el otro español que mira Housepets!

No, aun no tengo cuenta, pero pronto me haré una.
Ok, ya tengo una, agrégame, yo ya lo he hecho!
Hey si no sabe susar los foros, yo te enseño, nos e mucho peor no es tan dificil, aproposito….
This strip is so AWesome, i like it just like the CAt Tail strip!!!
Ok luego me aviasa para platicar por ahi bye!!!
Por supuesto! Espero tu tutorial! xD
And I think the same, this COMIC is awesome!
Es ist sehr toll!
in case you were wondering, that was German
Thanks to God that you said that you were talking in German… I was going to call the pope to an exorcism xD!
still might need one.
also, you have Pope Benedict’s number?

Joke, of course
Add me to the forum! I’m Mystic Wolf again xD

Housepets! ce le meilleur comic dans tout le temps!
And that is french
yay, I actually didn’t need Google translate for that one because I took three years of French.
I’m RandomGeekNamedBrent, page 28 #686 on the members list.
Beautiful just beautiful!!!!!!!
standard celestial policy!!!!! and Tarot say that!!!!!!!!
haha love the third panel rick. nice comic.
I don’t get the title of this strip, can somebody explain it to me pls?
i think it has somthing to do with this bieng a continues joke….i really dont get it either =l
When you get this, can you tell me???? it’s a very strange title, what is going on Rick???
i kinda think he wanted to confuse us O_O
For the non-Americans: It’s the policy in most American hospitals, when a patient is discharged, to bring them to the front door in a wheelchair whether or not they need it.
oh….ok well thanks for clearing that up Rick.
I still don’t get the relation of the title with this script :S
as it’s the hospital policy to take the patient to the door in a wheel chair even if they’re going to walk home, it’s celestial policy to make the person think it was a dream even if they are going to know it wasn’t a dream almost immediately after they wake up.
haha i can think of a funny coment to that X3 (p.s. its not inapropriate XD)
Thank you again!
I wasn’t getting it either!
explanations are what I do.
I didn’t even know that, and I’m an American…God, I’m clueless. X3;
or you’ve never been in a hospital. or you’ve always actually NEEDED the wheelchair.
Thank you, Rick, now i get it!!!!!!!!!
so you just dreamed about a dragon fighting a wintergiant what are you going to do now?
Why am I screaming that wasn’t scary????!!!!!!!!!!JAJAJAJ
AAAAH THAT WAS NOT SCARY ATT ALL! Haha funny part.
Was it scary?
NO, BUT STILL I’M SCREAMING! o.o
i liked that strip much idk why :’D
Sounds like Peanut is getting closer and closer to the truth! So far, only King has managed to beat him to it!
lol yea but peanuts going to be the second althoug… who will be the third O_O?
five bucks says grape.
1 million internets says its peanut
i think Leinad meant Grape will be third.
Then, if you give me 5 bucks if I say Grape, and 1000000 internets if I say Peanut… I say Grapeanut! xDDD
But I’m agree with Brent (Why can’t I edit my other message? In this way, I write like… 2 or 3 comments at the same time…)
I agree. there should at least be a way to delete comments and repost them edited.
lol mystic i dont think it works like that i didnt know what lienad ment so XD
7tth panel! called it :3
HAH! Go, Peanut! X3
lol srry for this comment i wanted to see wat my profile pic looked like :3
its not the rite one D:
Heh Peanut just doesn’t get it right? It’s obvious that this whole thing was not about makin it look like a dream, but to save time with getting Peanut back to his house. Silly “seeing too much into it” attitude. XD
BTW I think this is the first time I saw Tarot’s teeth and WHY do I find her being cuter that way? XD
i thought the same thing XD
It’s because she is a pamaranian (check spelling)
“standard celestial policy”is going to be excuse for getting off of World of Warcraft
do i rlly need to explain?
when i play WoW my friends complaign whe i have to get off and bieng a warlock and all the statement would work perfectly but my friends ask why when i tell them i have to get off
Have you tried that yet?
yup……did not work so well.
housepets = the best comic ever
but i miss thats comics of peanut with grape =D
♪ Wake me up, when September ennds. ♫
Oh wait, it’s Febuary.
Then sleep. xD
and wake up when September BEGINS xD
What was that? O.o
What is this? o.O
What twas once thought celestial wim, tis now considered celestial policy.
I have nothing to comment about, and yet I am commenting… why is this?
because you feel the need to get people to respond to you, even if there is nothing to respond to.
or you just want to be part of the group.
or you want to replace the life of someone else
no I… I mean he… doesn’t. <__>
Nah, I really just wanted to see if my avatar got through…
your avatar looks like the ice boss in twilight princess
Really? I don’t play my wii alot so I never got to play twilight princess… I was going for a shadowy mutant… besides the bottom half of the picture is a bit gruesome ._.
the boss is a yeti that looks into a mirror with dark power, turning herself into an evil yeti. you look like right after she turns to you and says “NO TAKE MIRROR” with her evil face.
*Looks up image* I suppose ._.
I kinda wanted it to be like Taokaka from Blazblue since I could’nt come up with a face that would look horrific enough… besides that I’m not that great at drawing anyways >_>
I could draw something scary. I’m a pretty good artist. though, i don’t know how to send it to you, and i can’t color(i’m very bad at that)
Ohh, it’s true! The evil yeti, I forgot her…
I love that game, and I’ll play to next FOR SURE!
I’M AWAKE… I mean, yes >_> … wait what was I talking about?
anyway, yeah I’m also somewhat bad at coloring… just colored a Cyclops I drew for an English project and I would give it a C+ in color ._.
If you really would like to draw it, I could just give out one of the hundreds of e-mails I got (I played alot of online games in the last 7 years I had a computer…)
I guess panel 3 puts a whole new meaning to the phrase/sentence…”If you ever live me, bad things will happen to you..”…or something like that…Sorta sounds a bit creepy and cute at the same time…I guess if Peanut wants to stay safe, he should continue dating Tarot…
Well we don’t know what the conditions are to be Linked it could be dating or it could be just having some connection to each other, like being good friends, or something else entirely.
It just read like something you would hear a possessive girlfriend say…Some of what I comment is menat to be a joke…However, due to the lack of knowledge about what “linked” means; my previous comment might sound more stupid and ignorant than funny…to sum it up sorry for my previous comment…
Oh don’t be sorry I agree with you;Dragons comment does come off as a bit possessive.
Ha now that is funny.
Disclaimer:My name may sound racist but it is not,It’s a similar name to one my friend has,And is made to go with the new pokemon black and white video games.
Sounds like Benneton.
What? What or who is Benneton?
Wait a minute wasnt there snow upto the top of the doorat the start of this arc?
Darn my inability to check spelling before posting.
Please insert a space in doorat to create door at.
the plows came through. and the frost giant was defeated, so it got a lot warmer and everything melted.
Frosty: no! i’m mellelelelllt…….
Peanut: look! a hat
Nope, no floods yet, so I wouldn’t say “a lot” warmer
I wonder what a doorat would look like…
A door with a long, pink tail and whiskers?
it would probably look like a large doormouse.
Dear god why is she so big! I expected her o be at least 1/2 that siE
She needed to be that big to fight the frost giant
I’ve got a better idea how to end this webcomic:
As the dragon makes into it’s final battle, their most powerful attacks fuse causing the entire universe explode killing Peanut in the process. Then suddenly, Rick wakes up find himself in a hospital. One of his friends came in and said that he’s in a coma for many years. Then Rick tells his friend that he was a dog name Peanut. His friends finds his dream intresting and tells Rick “Please tell me more about it”. And so, he did.
What do you think?
Then he gets off his meds and starts alternatively jumping between his Housepets world and the “real” world, wondering which one is the true reality.
And meeting a cheese guy
To much Silent Hill, yes?
Nah, too much Buffy (if you were referring to me)
THEN WHY ARE YOU SCREAMING “WHY AM I SCREAMING THAT WASN’T SCARY?!”
Tarot is just SO FREAKING CUTE! <3
I know, but waht happened to Sabrina???
Thats it! Im going out and getting a palmaranin puppy!!!
Shut up! You didnt get it right either!!
bite me >:l
Nom nom nom
I wouldn’t really, they are cute but very possessive and annoying if not trained right. I have one my self.
Celestial protocols, if Froid heard that his head would explode.
And then, Tarot. Been a while.
“AAAAAH WHY AM I SCREAMING THAT WASN’T SCARY”
Two jokes in one. <3 Oh, Peanut. XD
