Haha, Peanut’s adorable. x3
Like a little kid yelling across the road <3
Now I know what dogs sometimes yell out in the night! :O
I think the cats are more noisy at night then the dogs,with their meowing all night long ;3
Tell me about it. We have 5 cats and it’s meowing and hissing ALL NIGHT.
xD In my neighbourhood dogs are as noisy at night as cats!
My cat is quiet at night unless in fights with other cats or its raining. Dogs are the noisiest.
Know wut would be really awesome? A Housepets Animation
That would be SOOO cool!!!
Peanut actually sounds more like a teenager than a child in this one. X3
Which would make sense, since the pets are roughly equivalent to teenagers. *shrugs*
lol and I guess they do actually date.
WWWWHHHHAAAAAAATTTTT??!! …. SSSSAAAAAYYYYY WWWWHHHHAAAAATTTT?!?! oh ok, cool. XD
Sorry, godda run, dad’s on the other line! *click*
“But I’m still here!”
Actually, she could just talk in his mind instead.
Shh, you’ll ruin the silly fun!
Ah, but ruining the fun is my kinda fun
Pretty lame fun
Aww you ruined my fun from ruining fun… you must like it too!
Wooo! Tarot and peanut on a date :3!! Im a happy goofball now
Yes, i wanna se that soon , why the time dont pass fast, come on monday!!!!!!!!!!
Uh… it’s a one-off. Which means there probably won’t be a follow-up
Unless he arcs.
But no, I predict a new arc next strip.
And you don’t have to wear green any more.
Pffff! A one off? Flay-rah! This can’t be a one off! There can’t be!! There has to be an follow up! There MUST be a follow up! Why? Because of there simple fact that we have yet to see one of Tarot and Peanut’s dates. We’ve seen Grape and Max’s, and Peanut and Tarot kissing… but not a single date. I really hope there’s a follow up; those two are my favorite couple here. :3
It is possible that the date could be a later arc, too.
To be fair, the two have had dates.
The ‘first’ date could be said to have taken place in the arc that Tarot showed up. They spent the time with each other then.
Then there was Halloween, in which we know Peanut spent the evening with Tarot, just as Grape spent it with Max.
Foxstar I wouldn’t really call either of them dates per-say. Especially the first one, they had just met and weren’t dating at the time (I would say they didn’t become serious until IM2 at the earliest) and the Halloween arc you could tell by the look on Peanuts face he would have rather been with Grape at the time.
I would totally call this there first date that we know of.
So you’re saying Date ⊆ Appointment?
It says it’s a one-off, but that can’t be right? A strip can’t end like this, can it? I wanna see them date! NOW!!!
Wait, wait, wait… Do we have ourselves a bootstrap paradox, here?
Wait… The Lupe has been lost….
Where do all you zombies come from?
Wha? Zombies? What does that mean, exactly?
“By His Bootstraps” and “… All You Zombies” are two Robert Heinlein stories regarding time travel.
Oh, right… I should’ve been able to guess that. Now I feel silly.
“The Snake That Eats Its Own Tail, Forever and Ever. I know where I came from – but where did all you zombies come from?”
Rats, I thought that was the last line of the story, but I misremembered, there’s a handful of sentences after that.
I wonder if his service charges in embarrassment?
i think he lost that years ago
This reminds me of my dogs.. and what they happen to be doing right now…
Maby if dogs could use telephones,they wouldn’t be barking all the time,talking to the neighbor dog.Although sniffing is also considered a conversation between dogs.
Also lampshaded with King and Fox.
Over too lampshaded if you ask me
You can never have too many lampshades!
Argent,That lampshades comment is full of win,For some reason through i am unable to comment below it,The reply button isn’t there.
Disregard that,It showed in the right spot anyway.
The replies have been limited to five deep for a while in an attempt to deter any long reply threads. Of course, we work around it by continuously replying to the fourth level reply.
Argent, i was having in mind some of fox-king fanart *cough*
I have no idea what fanart you’re talking about.
Brings back memories of Ye Olde Party Lines, when you’d pick up the phone and hear your neighbor’s conversation. Fun!
Alt text plz!
“I do this partly because people want to see them act like animals for some reason”
Cue Foxstar beating Rick for pampering the fans
Except that a lot of people do that exact same thing, even if they have cellphones
So why is this, do you guys think?
“I do this partly because people want to see them act like animals for some reason”
Oops. Oh well, whatever.
Lol, crude, but efficient. Makes me wonder if they’re the only ones who do that, or if any of the other dogs do something like that as well.
In the HP! universe, Is dogs “talking” coined as “barking” to humans?
I have too often read “he barked” referring to the way a human said something; I think that’s what Mr. Sanwich means. The fact that Peanut’s a dog and that dogs literally bark in our universe just makes it even funnier!
‘Have seat!’ the Baron barked. Vimes had been trying to avoid the word, but that was exactly how the man spoke - in short, sharp sentences, every one an exclamation.
Though of course the Baron von Uberwald is a werewolf.
OK, what broke the line wrapping there?
that’s cool. how do you italic on here
Standard HTML: <i>italics<i/> = italics
The full list of HTML tags you can use appears below the “submit” button
My bad it’s <i>italics</i> (the slash has to come before the ‘i’)
This left the phone very small and boring
yea thats right keep that voice down…..unless…..
Before the invention of the telephone,the mail and that morse-code machine,that was the long distance conversation way..SCREAMING x3
You are forgetting the fire signals and smoke signals
I’m pretty sure that was after screaming.
Also: lines in the sand. Oh, wait….
screaming is also wrong… shouting will sound better
Sounds like the way stage crew works if the telex’s are out…
“Dim one oh five at full!”
“Cue five at full?”
Where we’re going, we don’t need phones.
I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist.
Would be funny if instead of the last panel Peanut would turn towards dad and start yelling at him, forgetting that he’s 2 meters away xD
Are… are you a wizard? D:
It’s actually extremely funny when you start to imagine it xD
Heh, that IS funny.
For me would be funny and painful, that te Groudy GRape apperas take a friying pan and hit peanut… and then she asked “Wait a second, how I get this thing again” or something like that
I mean that the question would be put into the friying pan place in the hosuepts world, i mean, it lost for years and sudenly appears with groudy grape and all the yelling thing, and then the question is like ironycal.
Housepets* writting mistake
Oh ok..i tough you ment about that time when Grape hit Bino on the head with a frying pan..nvm x3
I think he DID mean that
It’s funny because you have a writing mistake in “writting mistake”! xD
Also, that would be extremely hilarious, both to Vlad the Cat and theblackcateyes.
BARK BARK BARK WOOF BARK
Bark bark bark bark bark! Bark BARK bark bark! Bark bark? Bark?
Bark bark woof woof! Arooooo!
Dook dook dook. Dook DOOK dook dook? Dook? Dook DOOK dook dook! Dook dooker dook… dook… dook…
Waitaminute. A ferret that also speaks dog?
Or he just took a language course
Squeaky, uh, squeak, squeaker, squeakin’.
Limerick lim’rick lim’rick.
Limerick lim’rick lim’rick.
Limerick limerick lim’rick.
i LoL-ed so hard when i was watching this video, Argent.
ahh peanut i just love the way you do things your way
Well it’s suppose to be all-of-dogs way
Was anyone else thinking ‘Twilight Barking’?
But he’s not a dalmatian!
Peanut’s got a daaaate~
……and everybody knooows~
“I got… a daaay-aaaate…
I… I got… a daaay-aaaate…
I… caught a freeii-eeeiight…
^What would be going through Peanut’s head were theblackcateyes’ comment (http://www.housepetscomic.com/2011/03/18/yell-phone/comment-page-1/#comment-66909) to come true.
(A cookie to anyone who can tell me where the above quote is from. Note: this cookie is set to expire after one day.)
Awarding stale cookies?
No, they’ll stop being awarded then because he/she will provide the answer at that time if it has not been guessed yet.
It’s from Furthiiiiaaa~
cookie for meeeahh~
Hope it’s not staaaale~
Like eatin’ naaails~
A question just crossed my mind, has Peanut and Tarot had an ‘official’ date in the past? Or is this the first as far as we know?
This is the first one we know of officially. And I still say it about time, even if I don’t like the pairing.
And this is the exact reason why I say this MUST be continued!
This ignores when Peanut and Tarot met (which could be considered a “blind” date), when Tarot and Peanut spent time together on Halloween, and when we saw them messing with tarot cards. *shrugs*
Eh I still think calling the first one a blind date is stretching it, that would require both parties to know its a date at least, its unlikely Peanut considered it a date. And as for the Halloween one off Peanut clearly wanted it be with Grape at the time due to the look on his face in the comic so I wouldn’t call that one a date either because really IMO a date requires both parties to be interested in it to be one.
As for the Tarot Card one off that was just them hanging out and its not a date every time people hang out, but I guess you could be right about that one. However I still think its a stretch.
…Strange how they’re having the exact same ‘conversation’ a little higher up on the page, huh?
Maybe, but since she can see the future she will already know how the date will go.
That would ruin the fun, besides as far as i remember spirits don’t like very much looking into the future
She uses the spirits to look for the remote, I don’t think she cares.
your right most the time tarot just shows up saying she new peanut needed her they never really planed any thing unless you want to count the Halloween thing
Peanut must have a really big thumb in panel 3!
i didn’t get that…
It’s not a joke, his hand is slightly out of proportion in my opinion. He appears to have a 5 five finger hand rather the traditional 4 finger hand each pet has. Otherwise, Peanut must have a really big thumb if he has a hand that big and 3 fingers of a normal size.
You mean panel 2 then.
well he either stretched his hand or it is Rick’s mistake
I, for myself, think it is the first
To all who it may concern, I just refernced this comic(arc 19: sinister shadow) in a formative english essay for no apperent reason
Now you need to post that essay online!
Well it’s only a paragraph talking about pet reactions to PETA dog napping stunts, and plus, where would I post it?
Anywhere! Google doc’s ?
well i put it on the forum for anyone who cares
I wish my husky would to this with our neighbor’s dog
… So would sniffing be the equivalent of texting then?
Silly, sniffinf is the equaliant of a handshake: you show you want to be familiar with the person.
I don’t know HOW sniffing could be used for communication.
Just study ants and you’ll know
Peanut has no propriety. x3
Nice. This reminds of the old “Sorry, I’ll have to call you back from another theater” joke.
Welcome to the future.
The future is scary. I have seen it. It has traffic jams in three dimensions.
And I don’t even want to see what happens when you run out of gas in the middle of the “road”
call a portable gas-station?
No, I mean that joke is older than cellphones.
That’s one way to avoid roaming charges. :s
Animals acting like animals? Noooooo~
Madness, isn’t it?
+ 10 internets Maxmice
A question for the mods, is spam for a product that’s arguably on topic actually spam? Or is that a paradox? (see a couple messages up for context)
I guess it was!
My neighbor and I used to do this. We did it often enough, our neighborhood was aware of our antics.
Except for this one guy, who’s dog was always trying to bite us.
i love how peanut acts like he is talking on the phone i laughed so hard at dad is being rude part
Maybe from HP! dogs point of view, Earl does act rude
true i just thought it funny because i always see people complain when people talk why there on the phone
Psht, furries, wanting to see cartoon animals act like animals.
You don’t have to be a furry to want that … they must to do that from time to time … they are animals, doesn’t matter if they are cartoon or not …
From time to time? Elaborate.
Oh, the irony…. Ah well, can’t be helped I suppose. It’s fun when something out of the ordinary happens.
Man, i just finished readin ALL your comic (yup, i found it recently) and i have to say… this is one of the BEST web comics ever \o/
Your nickname gives me some bad memories… have you happen to play WoW?
Sorry for the offtopic question!
Anon = Short for annonymous
I was thinking of similar nickname in a game, shortened WoW, to be honest.
What time zone is this comic updated anyway?
U.S. Central Time
Thanks, I wanted to know because I sneak into the bathrooms at my school and go on my iPod just to see the latest housepets. But then there are already comments on here and I’m like “wait but it’s only 10:00 PM EST.” So I’ll have to go into the bathrooms at 9:00 now………but it’s worth it
Lucky for me, I’m only one time zone away, so I can update before school or before I go to bed. Okay, off-topic over, back to the strip.
This strip is just too cute…From what I have heard, before many rural areas receive even the option of phone service…Instead of walking to a neighbors house to talk ; especially if the neighbor was at the very end of the lane; a person would yell over to the nearest neighbor to get the attention of the neighbor at he end of the lane…In said rural areas the yelling “Hollering” eventially coined the term for the community a “Holler”…Or the term could in fact be a derivative of the term Hallow…Sorry if i drifted of topic …As well as for the length of the comment…
[Sentence 2] *received
I love the sound of dogs barking. I wish I could understand what they exchange
Professor, this is quite lame video you’ve posted
You should ask dr.Dolittle
or “The Beastmaster”
Dogs bark at each other for two reasons.
1.There is some weird thing in the neighborhood.
2. I think there is some weird thing in the neighborhood.
THIS IS A VERY GOOD COMIC
IT HAS GOOD ART AND ALSO THE WORDS ARE FUNNY TOO
I LIKE IT
Heh X3; Oh, lack of social grace, how we love/loathe thee ^^
Love the alt-text, too XD
Protip: Use telepathy.
Darn! missed all the good comments! I guess I should have waited up longer. But I gotta admit the strip is pretty funny.
I much prefer moving extra to yelling.
switching from first page to last page, first to last, it’s insane to see how much better the comic has gotten!
really nice work Rick, keep it up
it will be better to go through all of them to see how his art “evolved” to reach the level you see now
I wonder if he’s going to “reboot” the strip, to bring all the art up to date for the printed version.
(except for the Zot references that won’t work in print)
There’s a printed version?
I’m making a hopeful prediction.
But there might be. One day. If we all wish real hard.
DAD THATS MESSING WITH MY SIGNAL!!!!!!
The “DAD IS BEING EXTREMELY RUDE” line is hilarious.
If dogs could use phones….. O.O
Yea, i use verizon collarless the signal is good but its a bit expensive
