Oh Sasha you dawg! lol
Pun obviously intended.
yeah love the pun too. Speaking of puns
Alt Text: All that running around… MY dogs are bar— *gets shot*
*Runs over to Rick*
omg like totally sasha looks soooo masculine in the third frame
Um. No? *peers*
If anything, she looks like a puppy
This is upsetting…
my brain just exploded a little
Don’t forget to mop it up!
She is ADORABLE
Well, King knows his target anyway. You can afford to use a cue card when your target is totally self-centered.
Heh, I love that Sasha uses that card.
I love the fact that she says the whole thing in four completely mispartionned(I have NO idea what I should really call it.) sentences. XD
You might call it Shatneritis.
Dang! Ya beat me to it there mate! XD
Ummm… What now? XD
It’s a reference. To William Shatner’s. Style of acting as Captain. Kirk in Star. Trek.
Okay that’s cool, thx Argent. X3
yes. it is indeed. referring to. the almighty. shatner.
Does this mean that Bino is actually intelligent than Sasha?
No just either unobservant or doesn’t see it as that strange she would use a card like that.
This IS Sasha we’re talking about. Would it really suprise you that she ‘just happened’ to have a cue card?
With the way she normally acts no, not at all
I second this fact.
I agree. Plus, Bino is hearing what he wants to hear
I suppose not.
I immediately pictured Sasha in full motion here.
aww… I really thought sasha war really going to trick king into clining for her -.-
He could very well be cleaning while she’s doing this!
This is an entire day later you know. The other scenes happened in the morning
So he did get all those bottles cleaned up then! Poor King….
draw more windows :3
yes and a phew to top it off
I seriously doubt she can sneak the watch off him while “snuggling” maybe she’ll just say how nice it is and ask for it as a present? He might go for that, I don’t think he actually cares about it anyhow.
I believe she’s just getting him out of the way so King can pillage the place for his watch.
but the watch is the thing in his neck… isn’t it?
..but the watch is on Binos collar, always with him. So i think Sasha may do the mission by her own during the snuggle session :3
or king is waiting up stairs to jump bino in a darkened room and steal the watch.
This is unlikely, but she may also try to do a switch with a fake watch (which she’d have hidden in her collar) so Bino wouldn’t notice. Of course this could end up with a mix up of watches where even she can’t tell which is which (uh oh…)
Isn’t that how Charlie stole the watch in All Dogs Go to Heaven? Of course, those watches were color-coded
I think you’re forgetting, this is Sasha we’re talking about… you really think she can manage anything so complicated and sneaky properly?
Properly? maybe not. But she’s fully capable of doing it in an effective way full of humorous sidetracks.
Heh, I love how Bino is so easily convinced.
Heh nice move King good plan. Also nice she needs a cue card lol XD
What is that pink thing by Sasha in the second panel?
Oh, nevermind then. =D
It’s raining? … that’s not a good omen….
Umbrella… oh, I see the rain now. It’s kinda dark and hard to tell it’s there.
…I thought it was a curtain…
So, uh, it’s been raining all-day non-stop?
It has been raining a lot there lately.
Well, he’s in Alabama.
Which is getting tornado warnings again.
Best of luck, Rick, I got my fingers crossed for you.
I believe that is pink motion blur.
Fido looks very muscular, and is that the watch on bino’s collar?
Oh hey! this is the first time we’ve seen fido since feburary 21st! yay fido!
I am going to e-strangle the next person who comments on the musculature of the characters, and how much it is.
Of course now that I announced it I can’t actually follow up cause that’ll just prompt people to do it on purpose
(this is a joke btw)
what is this “e-strangle” and where can I learn to do it?
I’d like to image it involves using the force to choke them while focusing on the display picture of an individual.
It’s like e-throttling except not so intense.
I think it’s where they strangle you with your own bandwidth. You have crappy service? Well that’s good for you, i guess…
The threat becomes a little less, y’know, meaningful if you announce that it is a joke.
it was a compliment!
Wait a second, is Bino wearing the watch on his collar?!?!
lol so i’m not the only one XD
Yes, he has been since he got it.
Yeah if you remember it was on his neck when he looked at the name of the owner
why is it floating?
It’s not. It’s hanging from his collar.
Rick doesn’t usually draw in all the links of chain between collars and tags, unless it’s Fox’s or the wolf-pack’s dogtags that don’t have a collar.
thanks for clearing things up
AHHHH PANEL 3 TOOOOOO CUTE!!!! AHHHH!!!!! <3 <3
Just, like, all over, right?
Yeah. When I read this I spilled some cute on my shirt. *sigh* that’ll never come out…
its pretty rare to see both Bino and Fido in the same frame- awesome! and I love Bino expression on frame 3-4.
Sasha, the fact that you used a cue card makes you even more awesome, and shows how much Bino underestimates her, I think.
Also, I find it really interesting that Bino now has the watch as his collar tag. I guess he really is a watchdog now! Theme naming and all.
Also, the ‘Phew’ from Sasha is adorable.
Sasha won even MORE awesomeness points
finally, when Sasha manages to get the watch from Bino without him realizing it, her awesomeness points will be beyond the ability to quantify.
Yea, you think he would have learned from re-gifting her.
You’d think, wouldn’t you?
Okay, where do you think King’s plan would backfire? When Sasha is about to get the watch, or when King’s get the watch and Fox sees him with it…
I’m betting when Fox sees him.
it IS russian xD or old slovenian i should say
..reply fail, wrong place
I wouldn’t even bring it up around Fox.
Each step of King is closer to victory… Klassno!!
I wonder what will happen next? Maybe Sasha will “snuggle” with Bino and take the watch, or the next strip will show King picking up beer cans, or, maybe, we will see an appearance of Pete.
or maybe Rick well destroy our minds with a whole stripe about spo again living the cliff hanger in the air
Can I correct his spelling? Please?
Read your comment before I read his.
If it were up to me…
sorry I noticed it to late and didn’t know how to edit
General practice is replying with “I meant X instead of Y” or “*X, not Y” and, more rarely “Where it says Y substitute X”
You can correct my spelling anytime.
Could you put that in writing?
thank you frank for the chuckle, i really really needed that right now
I can’t quite make out the alt-text. My dogs are bar-…what?
It’s supposed to be “my dogs are barking” which basically means “my feet are hurting”.
You know what, Rick? You deserve to get shot for that. (I’m kidding)
Hmmm… I’m slow for these stuff, but okay it’s funny. XD
You need to look at more Hush Puppies ads
Look at what now? XD
I always thought it meant “My feet are smelling”…
I never heard that expression.
Apparently, it’s U.S. Southeast during the 1950’s
Before my time then.
from the hush puppie shoes that supposedly saved keith richards life right?
I just lol
BOW CHICKA WOW WOW
I think it should play that sound effect when you mouse-over “totally private” as an easter egg
im talkin about the song by mike posner ft lil wayne as the song to be played
Sasha, just like the name and all, kind of sounds Russian. That would be sooo epic.
it IS russian xD or old
slovenian i should say
“But Sasha is boy’s name.”
(now I’ve blanked on the movie I’m quoting… someone help me?)
Of course, Sasha is simply the Eastern Europe version of “Alex”, so it can go both ways
Found the movie:
Doesn’t have that quote, alas.
Omg i love it nice cue card btw
Sasha Icon FTW X3 http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/4143/cutesashapng.png
my, that didn’t take very long
yeah i already have it
I thinks he’s up to somethings…
Are you telling me that, with an avatar like that, you aren’t?
Haha aww, Sasha. <3 :3 She should have been asked me instead! ;3
Sasha cuteness, Bino smugness, and King cleverness, I’d say.
completely oblivious card lololol
I Only have one thing to say BEAN BAGS!
The girl next door, eh?
Its scripted! Never actually thought that he would fell for it Lolz;D!!!
Am I alone in thinking the cue card is a deliberate thing to *make* her look harmless and stupid? She’s had moments of striking clarity and intelligence before after all. I’m of the opinion that she’s so smart that acting that way gets boring, and she’s found playing around as the ditz is more interesting and gets more friends…
hence, sneaky plans can be made to work more easily with the application of “omg, sasha is so dumb she needs a cue card to flirt with me… but, eh, she’s cute, i’ll take the bait”
we’ll probably never know. I may agree with you, though. Anyone who can compose a complex piano piece in their head having (i assume) never played before has smarts. My brother is learning to compose music and it is not easy.
It’s probably more likely that shje’s less “dumb” and more “forgetful” or at least easily distracted (hence why King gave her the card, as even if she is smart, how would HE know that?).
In addition to the piano example by Viath she also had those pre-written scripts shown during that dog commercial she starred in (the one done by that ferret – Rock I think his name was)
oh yes, I forgot to mention that she could also simply have a one-track mind, hence her apparant inability to see things from anothers perspective.
it’s part of the fun not knowing
agreed. it’s fun to speculate and not knowing makes discussions like this possible.
Good ol’ bino…
Heh, oh yeah I’m REALLY lookin forward to see how Sasha’s going to take that watch… Okay maybe she’ll just hit him on the head or somethin I don’ know. XD
That’d be a good one. It’s not like he would expect it.
Of course, if we randomly see a fight sequence akin to the ones that, I’m fairly certain, Peter Griffin has with an oversize chicken, that’d be even more unexpected.
And extremely out of character
It’s “Rick”. “Rick Griffin”.
I was referring to the Griffin family of Family Guy fame.
All these mindblows. I love them so much. X)
“Ow! What the– Who hit me over the head with a frying pan?”
“Uh, Bino, the frying pan was three years ago. Are you sure you don’t mean ‘dynamite’?”
“Yes, thank you. Who hit me over the head with dynamite?”
“…why do you have dynamite in your house again?”
That would be AWESOME as a strip lol
Unfortunately, the fact that I just said it makes it all the more unlikely it will appear
Hey at least you made a good idea for a guest comic.
Someone should read these mindblows and make some of them. XD
use the forget-me stick!
Was that a Megamind ref?
yes I hoped someone would get it. Although I really don’t see Sasha using violence to accomplish anything, at least without reason (see:re-gifting)
That’s not really what I thought was going happen. Still cool though.
I can totally see King telling her “And then you smile so he doesn’t suspect anything”
“Wait, let me write that down. ‘And… then… you… ’smile’ has two ‘L’s, right?”
Third panel equals yes.
This reminds me of the Romping episode of Animaniacs. Except replace Romping with Freeze Tag.
The alt text is the best part.
Fortress craft referance in panel one?
no i think you’ve just been glued to your xbox for far too long, i doubt rick knows what fortress craft is
the glouriesnes of que cards
And people think that Sasha’s the airhead. *Looks doubtfully at Bino*
I am excited to see what King has cooked up for poor Bino
He he… This arc just keeps getting better and better.
I would like to point out something interesting that I just noticed:
Look at Bino’s collar here – http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/05/10/give-a-dog-a-bone/
Now look at Bino’s collar in this strip.
Now look at Bino’s collar here – http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/08/20/no-its-too-perilous/
I think Bino’s collar is one of few (if any) collars that has been through multiple changes. And I’m not referring to the fact that he’s now using the watch as his tag; I mean the design changes in general, as well as the inversions of colour positions. Is there any specific reason for this, or is it just something that’s happened progressively and unconsciously?
This may seem obvious….but his collar changed because he starred in “The arc specifically about being naked” and a huge ordeal we never got to see. He loses his collar and doesnt get it back and gets a new one. btw i’d still like to hear the real story on that!
It’s the same as we saw, except without the “again”s and “already”s and “that’s not how I remembered it”s
I always thought “My dogs are barking” meant “My feet are smelling”…
Lucky (I meant that in a clean way)
May i just inquire about panel 2? I notice a strange pink.. thing that extends from Binos mouth to sasha’s hand, What is that suppose to be? x)
Other way around. It extends from Sasha’s hand to behind Bino’s mouth.
Rick’s already said it’s her umbrella:
wut’s dat pink thingy next to sasha’s head in the 2nd panel o.o?
never mind… just read the above post -_-’
oh gawsh. X3 I love Housepets. it never ceases to make me smile. =3 thank you Rick. =3
I dont understand the alt text. And what is that pink thing between Bino’s face and Sasha’s hand/paw whatever u call it in panel two.
As others have said in previous comments, the alt-text refers to the phrase “my dogs are barking,” meaning “my feet hurt.” Additionally, “that pink thing” is Sasha’s umbrella.
Oh Gosh! Her expression in Panel 3 is soooo (insert that indescribable word here)!!!!!!!! =D “Totally Private” lawl
I find it funny that you pointed out the beanie bags, after our inability to grasp just what those things were on the ground (the beer bottles at Sasha’s house). Thanks, Rick!
And Sasha is just too cute… every time I read a page of Housepets! I get this sudden urge to vote…
the power of proximity
Wasn’t that for kitties?
one of it’s many applications
No, rick. Just. No.
What are you saying no to?
I think the pun for which Rick was shot.
Sasha’s expressions really sell this one. I love her cute Panel 3 look and her “that’s a relief” expression in Panel 4
… That is sooo cute. D’awww
Too cute, must shield eyes, too late, D’awww
Who’s there !
Sasha who ?
Sasha lot of questions !
Who’s there !
Sasha who ?
Sasha fuss, just because I knocked on your door !
