    I love Sasha. x3

    • Private Elliot

      I agree with the above statement.

    • The Wolf Kin

      She is pretty awesome.

    • Tha Housedog

      Definitely agreed. X3

    • netherwolf

      We all agree ;3 “WE LOVE SASHA”

    • Grrxyn

      Just like all blond females. :3

      • Dissension

        That’s enough of the blond stereotype.

        • Grrxyn

          I’m blond myself… o.o

          • Sleet

            If you’re a female, join the forum here. :3

          • JokkePokke

            Okay, I knew Sasha was kinda stupid, but this is just ridicculous :P

          • JokkePokke

            Hmm, I wonder if Rick actually made her “blonde” on purpose, considering her cute stupidity

        • Grrxyn

          If my input isn’t wanted please remove all of my comments on this site.

          • brix

            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

        • KJOokami

          Considering Sasha’s character is more than likely BASED on the blonde female stereotype…

      • NightFox

        Blonde is but a hair color. Where the stereotypical (and inexistent) stupidity comes from is something I’ve yet to understand.

        • FuRrY321

          Stereotypes wouldn’t exist if people didn’t fill them~
          And it’s non-existent, just FYI.

    • tbird000666

      i like grape more

      • Neon Sky

        Why because shes not blonde? ;D

        • nukedude51

          whats wrong with a blonde D:

        • tbird000666

          no because shes more my type she acts like someone i like IRL

  3. Daggy

    Oh man, Sasha is a boss.

    • Daggy

      Also, their faces in the last 2 panels are adorable.

  4. Exulen

    ALT: honestly king, sometime you don’t act all that smart!

  5. IJustWantLove

    Sasha is so helpful :D

    • huntersunday

      I know right she is the best

  6. Alphonse

    Honestly…
    Come on King, get with the program.

  7. Nick Crotser

    Silly Sasha, tricking King into helping you

  8. Tormod

    *King grits his teeth and bears it* xD

  9. IceKitsune

    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!

    • Frank

      He knows he locked Sasha out on Christmas. I don’t think he needs to know anything else.

      • silverfang16

        Yea really. I mean, we know he got her to meet women.

    • Cannon Fodder

      Sad thing is Sasha’s dad reminds me of my dad :’[

  10. Aleyx

    Next, on RIPLEY’S: BELIEVE IT OR NOT. The man with the iron liver!!!

    • huntersunday

      Yes and the house that earned 1000 dollars recycling!

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        With or without the 10 cent return we’ve got in Michigan?

        • TheLaw

          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

          • Frank

            What if he kept everyone else’s bottle?

  11. FIrewolf

    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 >_>

    • Daggy

      She has streaks of intelligence!

      • tuctchone

        how is she not intelligent

        • Elwood Blutarsky

          Spelling puppies with an ‘O’ probably counts.

          • tuctchone

            writing typo

          • tanglestalker909

            verbal typo

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            wouldn’t those be writos and talkos?

    • The Wolf Kin

      Oh, we know she’s very intelligent. After all:

      http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/05/21/they-always-know/

      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.

      • FIrewolf

        “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

        • Koran

          based off of the phrase used by captain jack sparrow in the first film, right. Also;

          I see what you did there…

          • tbird000666

            i was thinking the same thing

          • FIrewolf

            Um, what did I do there? o.o

          • Aenbr

            You got me..

          • FIrewolf

            Are you my prize for the unknown thing i did? XD

    • netherwolf

      If Sasha realizes how she can manipulate people with her cuteness,the floor would have been clean years ago x3

    • Grrxyn

      She is the equivalent of a stereotypical blonde woman.

      • Foxstar

        If I have to stay stop with the stereotypes one more time…

        • FIrewolf

          You’re gonna go all Stereotypical blonde chick on us? (jk jk)

          • Aenbr

            Honestly, listen to the moderators. Foxstar and Dissension already said stop.That comment was really unneeded.

          • FIrewolf

            Wait, huh? Blond stereotypes to? Even if it’s ourselves? And it was just a little friendly humor, nothing harmful intended.

        • Frank

          Actually I think this is his attempt to tone it down

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I agree, as he is saying “stereotypical blonde” instead of implying that actual blondes are like that.

  12. The Wolf Kin

    Oh, Sasha, how amazing you are. Such a great character.

    • Ryufire

      Agreed! xD

  13. Snowmon

    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…
    :D What’s not to love about Shasha?

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      I think you forgot to say cute

      • Snowmon

        That’s because it goes without saying.

  14. netherwolf

    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

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Rick could easily spend next week finding chores for King to do.

      • huntersunday

        and all the King fans will be happy with more King

        mainly me XD

        • megaman64

          INDEED KING RLES!!!

          • Viath

            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 :)

          • FuRrY321

            King Real Lives??
            ;P
            jk

        • silverfang16

          Especially doing cleaning!

        • FuRrY321

          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.
          …Yay King!

          • silverfang16

            Because Fox is awesome too!

          • huntersunday

            because I randomly change it when I see fit but here you go

        • natranr

          Avatar need moar king. :P

  15. Nacky

    Silly Sasha. king will need to get her up to date.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      But she’s already awake and being a dog where romantically could he possibly take her?

      • FuRrY321

        Ugh. Really?
        What exactly do you call that again? Were you being punny, Elwood?

      • natranr

        Lol, that made my day. thanks.

  16. Z24

    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…

    • Frank

      “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!”

      • Zarvain

        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

        • Zarvain

          sorry, when I 1st read thought said bottles falling on Bino =P

  17. LegendaryHero

    Totally saved the straight-eared Sasha version.

    • Daggy

      hahaha. I hadn’t even realized it until someone posted it on the forums.

    • LegendaryHero

      As in still has a tab up pre-change.

    • The Wolf Kin

      Dang, I noticed and managed to ignore it! Because I’ve been commenting, I can’t even see the old version anymore!

  18. FenixWong951

    I just lol’d

  19. Roadrunner23

    lol they’re so cute :D
    by the way, Didn’t Sasha have folded left ear? always?

  20. Snowmon

    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…

    • SilverZeo

      I’ve seen a segement of that in a promo back when CW was WB…

  21. Kondog

    With all those open bottles it must smell like a brewery in there… Poor Sasha

    • netherwolf

      Yeah,maby because of the bad smell she can’t think straight x3

  22. SilverZeo

    …. 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….

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Bin’s not that heartless. Deep down he cares for her, he probably legitimately doesn’t know.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I reckon Bino is THAT kind of guy.

      • Dissension

        I’m pretty sure Bino isn’t as bad as some people like to believe. xD Especially regarding this comic, be wary of oversimplification.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I sure can’t recall Rick showing Bino having any redeeming features, ever. Not being as weird as Joey isn’t a redeeming feature.

          • natranr

            Speaking of Joey, what has he been up to?

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            He’s been doing Joey things.

        • silverfang16

          Bino isn’t evil….he just has ego issues brought on by years in his brothers shadow.

          • Dissension

            I endorse this analysis.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I agree too. anyone living in their brother’s large shadow would act like Bino.

  23. Elwood Blutarsky

    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.

    • Valerio

      that’s quire possible.

    • Valerio

      but the insofar appearances of Sasha’s owner quite suggest otherwise.

  24. Vlad the Cat

    Sasha, you won +100 awesomeness points.

    • Zarvain

      SO what is her new total then? If I may ask.

      • Leitrean

        over 9000

        • FuRrY321

          That.
          Was.
          Win.
          Really.

          • Vlad the Cat

            Last panel: king, you do not have enough overall points to boss around sasha xD

        • Zarvain

          ROFL

        • SilverZeo

          Sasha: Will they work for my Wii?

  25. Grrxyn

    Looking forward to it! …. NOT.

  26. SilverZeo

    This makes me wonder a “What If” situation in which Joel and fatty try to “save” Sasha instead of Fox…

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      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.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Sasha doesn’t realize she’s being kidnapped, tries to be helpful, and drives them crazy.

      • SilverZeo

        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….

  27. Valerio

    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

    • SilverZeo

      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…

  28. Avansis

    Looks like King got outplayed.

  29. Clairvoyant Legacy

    I love how this just hand-waves what is potentially a serious problem.

    • Hera Ledro

      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.

  30. Kohaku Wolflover

    I totally called that he was going to have to ask Sasha when we first saw Bino had the watch :P 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!

  31. Mystery Ezekude

    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.

  32. Little Puppy

    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?

    • Little Puppy

      Of course having said that. Grape is a purple cat…….. yeah okay I think I found my answer. No further questions m’lord….

      • tbird000666

        bridget is that u

        • Frank

          You mean you’re stating the “u” in “found” is named Briget, or is it the “u” in “further”?

          • FuRrY321

            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.

          • tbird000666

            no my friend says little puppy all the time and it makes me alittle mad when she does it

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      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.

      • Kohaku Wolflover

        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?

        • thropian

          could this magic mumbo-jumbo answer be a griffin turned him into a dog?

  33. gaboris

    Okay King just got another good point in my book, it’s pretty obvious, but I don’ like that guy as well. :D
    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. ;)

  34. Falcon01

    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.

  35. icarus

    and here i thought he just had a leopard print rug

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      I thought that at first glance too and thought “boy her owner is tacky” before King revealed those were beer bottles.

      • thropian

        I thought it was a rug until I read this comment

  36. Valerio

    Sasha’s muzzle is WAY more adorable in this comic

    • netherwolf

      isn’t it always ;3

  37. Leitrean

    sasha is awesome, i don’t think she’s really dumb but puts on a facade to manipulate and control others…like now XD

    • huntersunday

      or to handle the situation with her dad but your idea works to

      • Leitrean

        that kinda falls into the manipulate and control area

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Next strip, after cleaning the front room, Sasha and King whitewash the back fence.

          • Zarvain

            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

  38. Salenstormwing

    Oh Sasha, you’re so random. Don’t ever change.

  39. katgeek

    “But fine, lip buttoned.” one of the funniest lines ever! :-D

    • Frank

      Because a zipper would get caught in their fur

  40. RegularBird

    Aah, What would we do without Sasha.

    • Leitrean

      live the life of riley

  41. nukedude51

    question:does sasha have brain damage?

    • Frank

      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

      • Zarvain

        “I’m not REALLY stupid, I purposely sabotage Brain’s plans…”

        • silverfang16

          So she messes up King’s life on purpose?

        • Frank

          Okay, I have no idea where that came from. I was referring to the episodes “Pinky’s POV” and “Pinky’s Turn”

          • Zarvain

            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?”

  42. tuctchone

    clever sasha very clever reverse psychology….. sort of

    • netherwolf

      Too bad she doesn’t know she’s doing that ;3

      • Leitrean

        i think she does…

        • tuctchone

          i really dont think she does

  43. xhunterko

    As in, hint hint cough King you darn well better help here cough.

    • Frank

      …or else

      • Alabaster

        And that’s a Cosmic Horror level “or else”…

        • The Wolf Kin

          Involving ears stapled to eyes, in D minor.

          • tuctchone

            lol but he gave her the dog house

          • Alabaster

            Oh, the horror. One could only imagine the Eldritch Abomination she could summon with that tune if she truly wanted…

          • Frank

            What’s really funny is that all this is still actually on-topic

          • tuctchone

            Who knows howlong it will go before it is off topic

          • Dissension

            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.

          • tuctchone

            Do you always have the best comments

  44. Dogs Rule27

    i can relate.

  45. Dogs Rule27

    Sasha happy mad pattern: Frame 1:happy frame 2: mad frame 3: happy frame 4: mad
    —> Happy Mad Happy Mad!

  46. Yojimaru

    *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.

    • Jinxed

      Yeah, it seems I was fooled as well; Sasha’s dad really needs to get a better sense of “taste”.
      -rimshot-

  47. Argent Stonecutter

    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.

    • Leitrean

      her fur pattern is adorable

  48. KingLover

    I am getting a little annoyed that nobody will help king

    • silverfang16

      She will help him clean, what are you talking about?

  49. lenn

    Poor Sahsa. Her owner neglects her and drinks himself into oblivion and then expects her to clean up after him. What a jerk.

  50. FuRrY321

    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?

    • Yojimaru

      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?

    • Frank

      Muddy footprints? Cockroaches? Lost remotes? Discarded batteries?

    • Jinxed

      I was glancing over the comic when I first saw it, I usually don’t pay attention to details until the second time through.

    • FuRrY321

      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. :P

  51. Blaze

    Aww… poor Sasha…

  52. Hoheh

    Sasha. I want to take her home with me. Or, at the least, hug her. Like, a lot.

    • tbird000666

      i hate hugs i have a phobia of hugs

      • Frank

        And is this phobia since before or after you stared using Keith as your avatar?

        • Jinxed

          I’m sensing before…but maybe he just needs to catch up on Twokinds…

  53. JennifertheDark

    Poor Sasha…

    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

      • FuRrY321

        Their facial expressions just make it even more awesome.

        • Jinxed

          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.

  56. FerreTrip

    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:

    *sigh*

    *facepalm*

    I love King’s expression in the last panel

    • Shaex

      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

  60. Mr. Random

    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
