I love Sasha. x3
I agree with the above statement.
She is pretty awesome.
Definitely agreed. X3
We all agree ;3 “WE LOVE SASHA”
Just like all blond females. :3
That’s enough of the blond stereotype.
I’m blond myself… o.o
If you’re a female, join the forum here. :3
Okay, I knew Sasha was kinda stupid, but this is just ridicculous
Hmm, I wonder if Rick actually made her “blonde” on purpose, considering her cute stupidity
If my input isn’t wanted please remove all of my comments on this site.
whoa there, calm down…
i’m sure everything is cool, and even if it aint, it’s no reason to make a fuss about it
Considering Sasha’s character is more than likely BASED on the blonde female stereotype…
Blonde is but a hair color. Where the stereotypical (and inexistent) stupidity comes from is something I’ve yet to understand.
Stereotypes wouldn’t exist if people didn’t fill them~
And it’s non-existent, just FYI.
i like grape more
Why because shes not blonde? ;D
whats wrong with a blonde D:
no because shes more my type she acts like someone i like IRL
Oh man, Sasha is a boss.
Also, their faces in the last 2 panels are adorable.
ALT: honestly king, sometime you don’t act all that smart!
Where “sometime” is “most of the time”.
Sasha is so helpful
I know right she is the best
Come on King, get with the program.
Silly Sasha, tricking King into helping you
Is she silly? Or is she just a manipulative genius?!
*King grits his teeth and bears it* xD
And now we know a little bit more about Sashas’ dad (mostly confirming what we already know) It also looks like King has been over there and met him before. Also yay for more Sasha!
He knows he locked Sasha out on Christmas. I don’t think he needs to know anything else.
Yea really. I mean, we know he got her to meet women.
Sad thing is Sasha’s dad reminds me of my dad :’[
Next, on RIPLEY’S: BELIEVE IT OR NOT. The man with the iron liver!!!
Yes and the house that earned 1000 dollars recycling!
With or without the 10 cent return we’ve got in Michigan?
With… Trust me I live in Michigan too. Even if Sasha’s father kept every bottle from when he started drinking, it would not be enough to make decent money
What if he kept everyone else’s bottle?
SASHA WIN! =D Is she dumb, or is she really intelligent enough to manipulate King to help her and give her elaborate gifts based off of jealousy >_>
She has streaks of intelligence!
how is she not intelligent
Spelling puppies with an ‘O’ probably counts.
wouldn’t those be writos and talkos?
Oh, we know she’s very intelligent. After all:
I’m pretty sure the stupidity is just an act to cope with the home environment she has. You have to beware the kind ones, they’re always the ones who have the darkest secrets.
“an intelligent dog you can always trust to be intelligent, Honestly, it’s the stupid ones you got to look out for, for you can never tell when they’re going to do something incredibly…intelligent.” I’m paraphrasing of course XD
based off of the phrase used by captain jack sparrow in the first film, right. Also;
I see what you did there…
i was thinking the same thing
Um, what did I do there? o.o
You got me..
Are you my prize for the unknown thing i did? XD
If Sasha realizes how she can manipulate people with her cuteness,the floor would have been clean years ago x3
It probably was.
She is the equivalent of a stereotypical blonde woman.
If I have to stay stop with the stereotypes one more time…
You’re gonna go all Stereotypical blonde chick on us? (jk jk)
Honestly, listen to the moderators. Foxstar and Dissension already said stop.That comment was really unneeded.
Wait, huh? Blond stereotypes to? Even if it’s ourselves? And it was just a little friendly humor, nothing harmful intended.
Actually I think this is his attempt to tone it down
I agree, as he is saying “stereotypical blonde” instead of implying that actual blondes are like that.
Oh, Sasha, how amazing you are. Such a great character.
There’s a word for pups like Shasha.
Actually, there’s quite a few words come to think of it.
Cute, Crazy, Insane, Cute, Abused, Manipulative, Cute, Smart-Donkey…
What’s not to love about Shasha?
I think you forgot to say cute
That’s because it goes without saying.
Enough with the dirty floor already.Poor King,who knows how long it’ll take to make Sasha understand about the problem…hopefully soon ;3
Rick could easily spend next week finding chores for King to do.
and all the King fans will be happy with more King
mainly me XD
INDEED KING RLES!!!
King has definitely gone through some serious character progression. I wonder how much longer this arc will continue and/or the hilarity that will ensue before it does
King Real Lives??
Especially doing cleaning!
You are a strong King fan?
Then why does your avatar only have the barest glimpse of King, hm?
Mind you, it’s good enough as it is.
Because Fox is awesome too!
because I randomly change it when I see fit but here you go
Avatar need moar king.
Silly Sasha. king will need to get her up to date.
But she’s already awake and being a dog where romantically could he possibly take her?
What exactly do you call that again? Were you being punny, Elwood?
Lol, that made my day. thanks.
There is Too Dumb to Live, then there is The Right kind of Dumbness.
Bet Bino figures how the clock works before they finish cleaning…
“Okay, Sasha, I managed to put all the bottles in a neat little seven-foot-tall mountain. Now will you listen to me?”
(Cut to Bino clicking the watch)
(Cut to all the bottles falling on King) “AAAAAAAAH!”
hehe If only, it could go on like that for a week, and for once I don’t think King would mind someone else messing with his fate. XD
sorry, when I 1st read thought said bottles falling on Bino =P
Totally saved the straight-eared Sasha version.
hahaha. I hadn’t even realized it until someone posted it on the forums.
As in still has a tab up pre-change.
Dang, I noticed and managed to ignore it! Because I’ve been commenting, I can’t even see the old version anymore!
I just lol’d
lol they’re so cute
by the way, Didn’t Sasha have folded left ear? always?
Ohhh it’s Fixed! so quick rick!
Actually, there once was a man who made an artificial island made completely out of recycled bottles. There’s enough on that floor to build a glass continent.
Even I couldn’t drink that much soda…
I’ve seen a segement of that in a promo back when CW was WB…
With all those open bottles it must smell like a brewery in there… Poor Sasha
Yeah,maby because of the bad smell she can’t think straight x3
Nah, she just tricks King into helping her.
…. You think Bino knows about her Daddy issues? ANd if he did, do you think Bino would care? Not that I saying he’s THAT kind of guy.. but as Sasha’s boyfriend, you think he would notice….
Bin’s not that heartless. Deep down he cares for her, he probably legitimately doesn’t know.
I reckon Bino is THAT kind of guy.
I’m pretty sure Bino isn’t as bad as some people like to believe. xD Especially regarding this comic, be wary of oversimplification.
I sure can’t recall Rick showing Bino having any redeeming features, ever. Not being as weird as Joey isn’t a redeeming feature.
Speaking of Joey, what has he been up to?
He’s been doing Joey things.
Bino isn’t evil….he just has ego issues brought on by years in his brothers shadow.
I endorse this analysis.
I agree too. anyone living in their brother’s large shadow would act like Bino.
I’ve always wondered if the stuff about Sasha’s Daddy was misdirection and it would turn instead of a drunk he’d be a decent guy who just likes the occasional drink. What a shame for Sasha that’s not the case.
As someone already said, the stupidity must be her way of coping.
that’s quire possible.
but the insofar appearances of Sasha’s owner quite suggest otherwise.
Sasha, you won +100 awesomeness points.
SO what is her new total then? If I may ask.
Last panel: king, you do not have enough overall points to boss around sasha xD
Sasha: Will they work for my Wii?
Looking forward to it! …. NOT.
This makes me wonder a “What If” situation in which Joel and fatty try to “save” Sasha instead of Fox…
They’d still get pulled over on an unrelated note, panic and then it would all go to heck. Maybe Kevin arrests Joel instead of Fido.
Sasha doesn’t realize she’s being kidnapped, tries to be helpful, and drives them crazy.
ANd when she comes back home to her Dad, she’ll look up in the skies and say that they were her bestest best friends of all of bestest best frienddom….
My bet’s on King spending the day helping Sasha and leaving aside his own problems, once more proving his best side, and deciding not to involve her in his problems since she already has her own share with her drinking jerky owner
Or his actions help Bino and Sasha be better as a couple and in turn make Bino a better dog and Sasha less dependent to her owner…
Looks like King got outplayed.
I love how this just hand-waves what is potentially a serious problem.
Given the previous references to this, I think this is more than just a handwave. Also given that this is a PG webcomic that arguably appeals to a younger audience, it seems safe to say that this really is more of a message to that audience than a handwave.
I totally called that he was going to have to ask Sasha when we first saw Bino had the watch Now I hope that by helping her clean she will help him get the watch… but first he must clean the entire house from top to bottom, MWAHAHAHA!
King was right. He ISN’T gonna like this. Because it’s gonna slow him down in his path of retrieving his fate and deciding what to do with it.
I never noticed before that Sasha has pink eyes…. thats kinda………weird. I mean it suits her but thinking of it from a real animal perspective, it’s strange nonetheless. I mean is she part albino or something? Or just a random colouring whim?
Of course having said that. Grape is a purple cat…….. yeah okay I think I found my answer. No further questions m’lord….
bridget is that u
You mean you’re stating the “u” in “found” is named Briget, or is it the “u” in “further”?
Seriously? Maybe it’s just because I’m dead tired, but it took me a bit to get that.
So, yeah, I stayed up past midnight. Now all I have to do is do it on a weekday, when Rick updates.
no my friend says little puppy all the time and it makes me alittle mad when she does it
A lot of the characters have unusual eye colors, I find it part of the charm of the art style. For instance Maxwell’s are teal and Sgt. Ralph’s are gray. Fox’s are a purpleish looking blue.
Oddly King’s eyes are sky blue when Joel’s were brown.
Yeah that’s weird. You would think the one thing that wouldn’t change when he turned into a dog would be his eyes. I wonder if there is some magical mumbo-jumbo answer for it?
could this magic mumbo-jumbo answer be a griffin turned him into a dog?
Okay King just got another good point in my book, it’s pretty obvious, but I don’ like that guy as well.
At first I thought that was a tiger striped carper or somethin, but yeah makes sense.
I think NOONE would be able to get straight to the point if he’d be talkin to Sasha, just sayin.
Sasha is just soo adorable! Poor King has to just figure out how to tune into channel Sasha in order to explain what he needs.
and here i thought he just had a leopard print rug
I thought that at first glance too and thought “boy her owner is tacky” before King revealed those were beer bottles.
I thought it was a rug until I read this comment
Sasha’s muzzle is WAY more adorable in this comic
isn’t it always ;3
sasha is awesome, i don’t think she’s really dumb but puts on a facade to manipulate and control others…like now XD
or to handle the situation with her dad but your idea works to
that kinda falls into the manipulate and control area
Next strip, after cleaning the front room, Sasha and King whitewash the back fence.
How? She makes King think it’s one of the most fun things he could do all day?
Come on, that could NEVER work. =P
Oh Sasha, you’re so random. Don’t ever change.
“But fine, lip buttoned.” one of the funniest lines ever!
Because a zipper would get caught in their fur
Aah, What would we do without Sasha.
live the life of riley
question:does sasha have brain damage?
I like to think of her as Pinky from Pinky and the Brain. She just gets easily distracted, but could probably take over the world if she set her mind to it
“I’m not REALLY stupid, I purposely sabotage Brain’s plans…”
So she messes up King’s life on purpose?
… maybey >.>
Okay, I have no idea where that came from. I was referring to the episodes “Pinky’s POV” and “Pinky’s Turn”
It was from something Cartoonnetwork did as a side bit/ad for the series. Pinky was talking to some documentary interviewer explaining what it was like working with B rain and why he acts the way he does.
“Cuz if we ever did take over the world, the show would end, and THEN what would we do?”
clever sasha very clever reverse psychology….. sort of
Too bad she doesn’t know she’s doing that ;3
i think she does…
i really dont think she does
As in, hint hint cough King you darn well better help here cough.
And that’s a Cosmic Horror level “or else”…
Involving ears stapled to eyes, in D minor.
lol but he gave her the dog house
Oh, the horror. One could only imagine the Eldritch Abomination she could summon with that tune if she truly wanted…
What’s really funny is that all this is still actually on-topic
Who knows howlong it will go before it is off topic
It’s entirely possible some people are in possession of that knowledge.
As for Sasha, she may be intelligent and have specialized skills, but she’s still silly and scatterbrained.
Do you always have the best comments
i can relate.
The pun in the alt text not the beer bottles.
Sasha happy mad pattern: Frame 1:happy frame 2: mad frame 3: happy frame 4: mad
—> Happy Mad Happy Mad!
*squints eyes and stares at comic* Beer Bottles eh? I thought they were the spots on a leopard print carpet. Oh well, both options are equally sleazy.
Yeah, it seems I was fooled as well; Sasha’s dad really needs to get a better sense of “taste”.
Somebody called for a rimshot?
Sasha is a stereotypical good dog. Happy and loyal no matter what you do to them.
I imagine she’s got some Golden Retriever in her makeup.
her fur pattern is adorable
I am getting a little annoyed that nobody will help king
She will help him clean, what are you talking about?
Poor Sahsa. Her owner neglects her and drinks himself into oblivion and then expects her to clean up after him. What a jerk.
Even if I hadn’t of read the comments, or read King’s statement, I would still probably see the beer bottles as just that, not a leopard rug.
I mean, what kind of leopard spots are bottle-shaped and cover bits of furniture?
What kind of beer bottles are sausage-shaped? Really, only about two of those look like actual bottles. The rest look like mud smears on the carpet, or worse.
You apparently didn’t get the joke I was trying to make. Leopard Print carpet/rugs are often found in sleazy ‘love nests’, and since Sasha’s owner apparently got her as a chick magnet, wouldn’t you expect something like that in his house?
Muddy footprints? Cockroaches? Lost remotes? Discarded batteries?
I was glancing over the comic when I first saw it, I usually don’t pay attention to details until the second time through.
Sorry, I was tired; I didn’t mean to sound condescending or anything, really.
And @Yojimaru, I think I did get it, just didn’t really take it in.
Aww… poor Sasha…
Sasha. I want to take her home with me. Or, at the least, hug her. Like, a lot.
i hate hugs i have a phobia of hugs
And is this phobia since before or after you stared using Keith as your avatar?
I’m sensing before…but maybe he just needs to catch up on Twokinds…
Any arc that has Sasha in it is an automatic WIN…She’s just awesome…I can’t wait to see what happens next with her involved.
Indeed because Sasha + King = Epic awesome win
Their facial expressions just make it even more awesome.
I think the fact it’s housepets makes it pretty awesome.
You know, if i owned a housepets pet, i would ask him/her to clean up the house while i was gone working too, minus the bad treatment and beer induced rage.
Urf…I really think she should get taken away from her daddy, no offense…no dog should have to clean up after his/her owner like THAT…
That said, way to go, Sasha-logic! X3;
Unbeknown-st to the reader, the hidden panels 5 and 6 depict King’s actions as follows:
I love King’s expression in the last panel
Most of King’s expressions are priceless. Almost every comic with him in it has a memorable one. I think.
CAUGHT UP! FINALLY!
…And yikes, relying on Sasha
Ahh, Sasha… So much like me. Funny but doesn’t realize it, a serious smartapple and with only a few signs of intelligence. I’d say she’s exactly like me if I were female
Sasha is so adorable! MOAR PleAsE!!!!
Well i been reading this for a while and im ashamed to say that this have been my first comment
sorry for that
I have enjoyed this Web comic a lot..
anyway , i truly enjoy the Story of King so far
