lol at the Arc name this one is going to be very funny.
I can already picture Bino trying to sneak around the neighborhood while hiding in a portable bush.
Also, he could always just hold his collar together on his neck until he gets home, but that wouldn’t be as entertaining.
Just like Solid Snake…Solid Bino
How about Solid Canine. But either would work, considering I’m pretty sure Snake is his name and it’s a classification of animal.
Snake is a ranking in the Foxhound unit in MGS. Solid Snake is the full code name to differenate him from any other Snakes, like Liquid Snake.
Or Solidus Snake (“Les enfants terribles” project, I think).
Talking about the topic… Funny situation! Poor Bino, but he is already naked!
I was actually imagining htat Simpson ep in which Marge and Homer try to sneak from the minigolf course to home and hide behind various things.
Ah Natural Born Kissers yes I love that episode. A situation like that for Bino in this arc would definitely be funny. Trying to not be seen by everyone lol just imagining it now its great.
I’m now expecting Bino running around sneakily trying to cover his… neck.
What? What were you expecting? Get your mind out of the gutter, guys!
lol the alt text cracks me up
‘Bino, I’ve already seen younak–’ ‘I SAID WE NEVER SPEAK OF THAT AGAIN’
…..I really hope i got that one wrong….
since i for some reason can’t reply on any earlier comics, i’ll ask here instead
what does “D&D” mean here? i hear Joey and his creepy friends talk about it all the time, and i’m fairly sure it doesn’t mean “Dungeons & Dragons”, so what does it mean here?
I’m pretty sure it means “Dungeons and Dragons”… why (other than the obvious copyright issues) wouldn’t it?
you cant reply on any of the earlier ones because apprently comments s ystem works on recent comics mayb up to 2 or 3 days ago
seconded… well they are pets right? XD
Best arc ever.
An Arc about being naked?
Why not? xD
Because it may prove difficult to comment on the strips while maintaining the low rating.
I second that.
I find myself wondering if Rick had an arc like this in mind for quite a while but never did it (until now) fearing it would be going too far, taking what’s usually a once-and-you’re-done joke in a comic into… what it is now. An Arc Specifically About Being Naked.
Well, I guess if you’re going to make an arc specifically about being naked, you might as well call it out as such.
ya at that point
Eh, it happens.
accident’s happen,but this time Bino’s in a real jam.
I say we preserve this moment for prosperity.
I wonder what would Sasha say to Bino if she sees him naked
Go oh natural. My family’s dogs do.
Alt text plz!
“Bino, I’ve already seen you nak–”
“I SAID WE NEVER SPEAK OF THAT AGAIN!”
Cant…breath!!! ROFLMAO ROFLMAO
Peanut was seemingly perfectly fine with being collar-less in a previous strip. O_o What’s with joey?
…Peanut wasn’t collar-less in the last strip…
“In a previous strip”. He didn’t say in the last strip.
Meh, sorry. Guess I miss-read.. ^^; Normally i’d notice that sort of thing..
‘In a previous strip’ is not the same as ‘the last strip.’ Peanut was seen collarless in “The Other Alternative” from Arc 20: Road Trip.
Wow…my bad; you know your Housepets…
Joey isn’t in this strip. That’s Bino. *peers*
It’s already been demonstrated that some pets feel ‘naked’ when they’re not wearing collars.
Like Grape in the same arc you mentioned before…
JOEY IN THE ARC!!!!!!! YES PLEASE, I THINK that i dont see Joey in a long time, i miss him!!! or zach!!! or sabrina!!! jajaja
…Your obsession with exclamations and caps and the questionable grammar makes me wonder how deep into the fandom you are.
We must quickly form a defense if they start multiplying!
“jajaja” should tip you off that he’s not a native English speaker, before you go full-on pedantic.
I’ve noticed that in SL. People will speak perfect English, but they’ll laugh “jajajaja” or “kekekeke”.
OK, I hadda google it. I didn’t quite get sucked into the Googleverse, and extracted this guide to foreign accents in IM:
Korean: k-k-k-k- or kekekeke
Japanese: fufufufu or huhuhuhu
Joey and Bino are blood sibilings, if I remember correctly, so it’s not too farfetched
Brothers from one litter…
and mistaking Bino and Joey is just … wrong!
And i repeat!!! You AVATAR is so cool!!!
Yes, but Peanut’s a nudist.
*sticks his tongue out*
No, he’s not … *raising a fist at Chip Uni*
ADVANCED NAKEY! XD
I know is so funny!!!!
so there is regular naked and advanced naked i think my life views just changed XD
And your Avitar pic seems to work with that comment by they way I read it.
He’s not naked, he’s covered in fur!
Oh, dear God, Rick. This weird little “nakedness” paradox you’ve created is coming back to haunt us again, and now with a full story arc dedicated to it? This is going to be hilarious. I’m anxious to see how it plays out!
Will Bino be able to avoid showing the viewers his nakedness by creatively avoiding his artist and the viewers every comic in this arc?
If he does, i so hope it’s either Grape or Sasha.
does = doesn’t . And i meant to say i hope Grape or SAsha catch him. Doh!
Ok… maybe it could be funny
Imagine Bino’s face when both of them (Sasha and Grape) see him xD
He’d probably never show himself ever again. That and Grape would probably hit him with a frying pan again.
Or “Broom in da face!” :]
Or just rofl-ing
Great strip, Rick; though, I wish it was that Tarot&Peanut date follow-up… Despite the Oxymoron, Happy Monday everyone! Even if it’s darker than tar outside and it’s 1, it’s still Monday, a school day, and I’m still awake…
Lol… Just like Grape.
Grape, how you could forget that??!!!
I tend to forget xp
Or was it Peanut?
http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/06/15/the-other-alternative/ They were both naked,advanced naked that is x3
Yeah, but only Grape hates that
jaja ADVANCE NAKEDNESS!!!JAJAJA
and good arc name i think i am gonna to lauch a lot!!!
Mod Edit: Don’t do that.
Oh no, Naked week…. -gets ideas about shaving cats-
shaving cats? that is just sick!
How would you know?
Never tried, but the very idea of shaving such cute animals is sick! I can make an exception for Persian cats though…
XD And what about Mexican Hairless kitties? =P
they aren’t shaved … i think
Advanced nakedness…..never heard of it
It’s like Advanced Darkness:
ITS SO EVIL!!!
You will see it as soon as Rick manages to get his laptop fixed
HEY, in my clock are 11:30, it’s not fair, i came 30 minutes later, whY?
stupid computer watch!!1
You’re lucky, it’s almost two over where I’m at.
advanced nakedness xD
cts (chuckles to self)…Well since it is spring ,I guess it was going to happen one way or another…I am sort puzzled though….When was the last time Bino had his collar replaced?…I would sugguest that he get a much stronger collar next time ; to prevent any unwanted wardrobe malfunctions in the future…I sure hope that a picture of Bino’s “Wardrobe Malfunction” doesn’t make its way into the Quarterly Issue of “The Good Old Dogs” newletter…cts
Probably when they lost the remote to his shock collar. I bet Bino was glad to be rid of it, too, even if Grape broke the remote.
Don’t give them any ideas!
So… just found this web comic about… *checks time* 3 hours ago. Just have to say that it is amazing and I need to go do my C Homework…..
Close, C Homework as in Programing in C. XD Which still isn’t done…
… This arc is going to be amazing.. the title blows my mind
Oh Alt text you’re so the source of extra comments and things to talk aboot. Thx for that. X3
Bino-Bino-Bino will the universe ever forgive you? … I don’ know what you did, but it may be some past life thingy. XD
BTW is it just me or does Rex look a bit more “full” then normally?
He kinda does.
He lost weight and build up from Kevin’s training exercise dvd.
[stand by for Rick commenting that someone always comments about a buff character looking buff even though they always look buff]
Think they’re pointing out that the last time we saw Rex, he looked alittle more fat than he did buff. He Has more muscle definition.
perhaps it has to do with the fact we last saw him at Christmas, baking cookies in a pink apron?
That kinda stuff really tends to distract you from noticing muscle definition, unless you’re into that. (I hope I’m not mistaken here xP)
I know how Bino feels, its how i feel like without my beanie or messenger bag.
Bino’s in a real pickle..you wouldn’t like to be in his situation,or would you ;3
Depends on how bad it is and how far I am from home >3>
Advanced naked. New level of naked that can make someone gasp with just one look.
*Facepalm* Bino, Bino, Bino…

Does this pop up every time the rules are broken?
Or are you purposely putting the rules in each post?
I think he’s putting it under every comic, or perhaps he needed to stress that first rule for this particular story arc.
This will be one interesting and funny arc.
You said it brother x3
We will see!
It couldn’t happen to a nicer dog.
agreed i think bino is getting just what he deserves
No, he would have to lose his collar. For forever. And he could never get a new one. Ever.
Haha, Bino, you deserve it >:D
My dog hated her collar. This strip was interesting, whatshisface I can’t remember seems to have no problem with not wearing a collar.
Um, What did this so called: “What’s his face” look like?
I think he means Peanut.
He was Rex.
How.. do.. you.. forget..
Maybe it was King and not Peanut. Remeber King had his collar off too once.
Yes, but he was… (filter, filter!) uh… inebriated, yeah
Bino is practicing the art of “not being seen.”
Of course, we know that he is, in fact, behind the bush. *BOOM*
And it turns out he was hiding under the overturned cardboard box! You just blew up Solid Snake instead!
This will be interesting.
Oh, this is gonna be good.
What can I say. You’ve asked for it.
Awww poor Bino, cant wait to see where this goes
Will we see half-naked King again?
We’ve already seen King naked at least twice already
We also saw both Bino and Sasha collarless when they were puppies
We also have seen Peanut and Grape naked, Fox too so what’s the big deal with nakedness? …
… Nevermind! Don’t answer!
Not counting the introduction or when he had his collar hanging off his shoulder?
I must now try to use the phrase “Advanced nakedness” in my daily life.
Quantum nakedness. Involving Schrodinger’s Pants.
They can be thought of as both on AND off of Schrodinger’s legs until he steps out of his house.
There is no way to top the awesomeness of that comment
Would he be both in AND out of jail if the cops saw him?
You think you’re being funny, but actually that is a perfectly serious interpretation of the quantum measurement problem.
Physics both did and did not jump the shark back in the ’50s.
Who says I was being funny? I was just expanding on what you said.
I was talking to Ace, or was I?
Or were you?
I both was and was not talking to Ace. I was also solving Xeno’s Paradox by quantum exhaustion.
Nah, don’t worry, i was just teasing you
You were and were not teasing me.
Or was i?
my mind just melted in my head
See, only one thing comes to mind when I see this arc.
Blackmail. Lots and lots of potential Bino Blackmail. >:3
If being without a collar is advanced nakedness, then what would you call being without a collar and being shaved?
If it’s worse, then imagine how a Sphinx cat or Mexican Hairless dog would feel if they lost their collar.
lol that would have to be Super Nakedness or something like that.
What’s with you people thinking of shaving animals?
Hee hee. xD If you shave a pet’s fur equals extreme nakedness.
Oh jeez, Bino. Seriously?
I wonder if this will end with Bino ending up at the Dog Catcher’s. Or with everyone going collarless. Orange Soda, anyone?
Does this make the Wolves and the forest animals a nudist colony?
They’re wild animals, kind of like amazonian tribes and stuff.
Tribal people cover up… sometimes XD
Sometimes in amazing ways.
Hey look it’s rex! and………hmm…that bush seems an odd place to hold a G.O.D.C meeting Bino.
G.O.D.C. = Good Old Dog’s Club, I hope?
What else it could mean?
Are we about to poke a little fun at a rule of cartoons? :3
And yes, this arc sounds hilarious already. (Hurrah for the possibility of an arc heavily involving a not-seen-very-often character, Rex!)
ehehehe X’3 really
dis is gonna be da best arc ever X3
Heheheheh… he has embarrassment. Lol,
We’ve been due for this year’s naked joke.
So… Would he be holding his hands around his neck to cover his “nakedness?”
GASP! Bare neck! How uncivilised!
I wonder if some (animals) in the HP! universe would feel just as naked having their necks bare as many Basitins do in TwoKinds with their ankles?…
HaHaha! I was just thinking the same thing. But wanted to make sure no one else had said it. I hate being the repeat. Also the fashion bonus from DMFA, http://www.missmab.com/Demo/Fashion04.php.
Also I hate being the repeat.
I see what you did there.
Windowz Naked Ultimate: Coming soon to a counterfeit kiosk near you.
Sorry, was just looking at all the fail’d counterfeits on M$’s website. This just happened to pop into my head. xP
“AAAH! I’m NAKED!”
LOL!!!!! ur gravatar matches PERFECTLY to the comic strip AND ur comment!! LOL! XD
Hehehehe… I just remembered that that’s what King said in the strip when he was changed to a dog. Hehehehe…… and once again… I still think Bino diserved this
Have you read Karloses fanfic about Bino? Housepets: Matt. after reading this i just can’t make fun out of him
Well, this looks to be that start of a strange, but possibly intresting story. Hmmm. I’ll reserve my opinion on this for now, but the alt text already has my hopes up, that’s hillarious.
Mind = blown.
I don’t wanna know what the heck Bino is talking about in the alt text.
But in words towards Bino to make him feel better… Peanut and Grape know just how u feel except they were in public.
‘But he still totally deserved it in my opinion.’
Curios but do you get paid for every time you say Bino totally deserved it
i have a feeling this will be a good arc, also dose anyone else want to know what happened after Peanut mailed Grapes fanfic to Res? anyone? anyone at all? or am i just crazy?
Everyone does, but Rick likes keeping us in suspense.
I imagine Res did a spit-take into his laptop, but that’s not really about this particular comic.
So that’s what happened to Rick’s laptop!
In suspense…or in agony?
Are they mutually exclusive?
…I…think so? Yes. Yes, I think they are.
I was kinda wondering about what they were talking about on the forums. Now i understand.
*points and laughs*
Hehehehe…. I just know someone else is gonna show up unexpectedly and heaven forbid it be Sasha…
Although it would most likely be a hilarious outcome.
It’d be interesting to see Sabrina I think she looks “cute”
oh dear god! I can just imagine the puns, the intentions, the pranks and the endless line of embaressment that will be Bino’s life when he gets caught. If only the Housepets had access to Youtube then Bino would be in trouble
Do I smell a spongebob reference? :3c
No…. thats somthing else…
Bino has more in common with Grape than fur and being a pet. Who knew?
um … Rick, perhaps?
Awww! No fair! Rick already knows everything!
It would be bad if he didnt.
Well, now that you mention it…
advanced nakedness, comprehensible by anyone but pets.
lol? oh come on bino, Advanced nakedness?! peanut could do better than that!
this arc is going to be interesting, shame it was the only one this week
“Bino, i’ve already seen you nak…”
“I SAID WE NEVER SPEAK OF THAT AGAIN!”
you stay classy Bino
What? No new strip?
Rick’s laptop is broken, so no more strips this week
Thanks! I forgot he said that on FA
Also in the previous post on the home page.
i wonder if anything is wrong with Rick
yeah, he’s got a flu or something he said, there’ll be no new comics this week
Here is your answer http://www.housepetscomic.com/2011/03/22/
I think I’m gonna like this arc ^-^
Long time no see, Dr.
Still no new
Get well soon Rick’s laptop
You repairmen better fix Rick’s Laptop computer fast … or else!
Curious. It seems my comments about nakedness in another comic have been deleted. Were they considered inappropriate in a thread about advanced nakedness? How ironic.
i hope we have a new comic for monday, by the way what time does he usually upload them at? eastern time plz
1:00 AM eastern, but he said on twitter that he’s not getting his laptop back until tomorrow, so it will be late if he updates before Wednesday at all.
Thank you very much, bummer that i’ll have to wait till wednesday but hey, twokinds gets updated then too so i’ll get a two for one XD
Also, at the risk of overposting (im new here so please be gentle)
this reminds me of the bastitians from twokinds.
Hooray arc about being naked! This is gonna be the best arc ever!
The possible jokes are endless
