nice seeing tiger again! also, a new character?
Not likely to be a recurring one, since he’s tagged ‘neighbor dogs.’ ;3
I’m just glad Rick is finally recovering and making on time updates to the comic. Welcome back Rick.
Not a new character… But I think I’ll name him “Cheerio.”
imitates Rick’s voice, “Well that is more of a Scottish terrier… so Laddie or Foxer McCloud works better”
Aaahaha, I laughed so hard on the last panel
lol Tiger such a jerk!
That or he’s completely naive
I forgot to change my Gravatar, that one has the hair all messed up T_T
But an adorable jerk
nice combo (for Tiger at least)
He has issues….what can you say?
Oh, Tiger, you’re such a kidder.
or he dose not know what he is doing
Oh Tiger. You silly goose.
Wednesday’s comic: old war dogs.
Wohoo, tiger looks different !
Also, could someone give me the alt please ? x3
It was surprisingly easy to come up with old people jokes. So that’s how newspaper cartoonists do it!
u know wats awesome if u shout “hey father time” someone always say”yeah”or “huh?” or “what?”
Or even better is if you are in a very crowded place and you shout “hey, stupid!” and everyone turns around. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL x3
Just before they all turn team up and beat the snot out of you for your insolence. X3
another good one is when you are on a long, boring bus ride suddenly point and yell “OH MY GOSH! THE SUN’S ON FIRE!!!” and see how many people look
I bet they’d all try to get off at the next stop! XDDD
alt text: “It was surprisingly easy to come up with old people jokes. So that’s how newspaper cartoonists do it!”
whoops, someone else did it first.
Thanks anyways, both of you x3
Oh, and he looks happy for once.
Isnt this his first time of being happy for something ? o.o
well, Tiger *was* very happy while singing the Grinch song… he was also very creepy, but quite happy
Haha–looking happy when being creepy or cruel. Oh Tiger.
On a sidenote, since he didn’t finish his scout training, wouldn’t that make him a CUB scout?
Tiger’s too tough for just ‘cub’ scouts!
He is just that amazing!
I remember when I was a wolf scout… good times
Lol I got kicked out because I was too hyper when I was 7. x3 I could have been an eagle scout by now. But Naw! Oh by the way, tiger is a TIGER cub scout. *gets face clawed off by tiger*
Aaa, the days of being in Cub Scouts.
Actually, I never helped anyone cross the street. I guess I don’t deserve this Eagle patch.
Anyway, I LIKE THIS OLD NEW (old?) DOG.
And yes, I’m aware it’s just a one-off.
I never helped anyone cross the street either (yet I’ve got that Eagle badge as well). That’s just a stereotype
it actually comes from a person who, when he was in England a scout helped him cross the street. He was so impressed with the boy that he wanted America to have a scouting program. He then became the founder of the Boy Scouts of America.
Did anyone notice that this is still part of the same arc. I thought not all dogs ended with Fridays comic. So maybe this is the climactic ending everyone was looking for.
Man I thought I fixed that
In order to take out the arc designation I have to change it in two different places
Oh, sorry about that.
OH. He shouldn’t done that. I wonder what’s gonna happen next.
He goes home, acts smug and eats something he probably shouldn’t have.
Yea maybe. hehe
maby he’s gonna
He shall eat the pizza…
“TIGER! WHO OFFENDED THE NEIGHBOURING DOGS?!”
Boy Scouts. Camping in the woods with poisonous snakes, huge spiders, mosquitoes, and sun burns………ahh the memories.
You should camp in the Allegheny National Forest, but try not to rub ketchup all over your body because that attracts bears.
I was never an outdoorsman. When i was a cub scout, any type of insect freaked me out if it touched me! XDD
i never was in that group i was someone who made fun of them
hey tbird…you do know this is housepets, not Twokinds, right?
if so, why is you profile pic Keith?
because not all of us have multiple email accounts so we can have a different Gravatar for each comic we read.
Adding to the gag, Wolf Scout is one of the lowest ranks in American scouting.
what is the highest? Im not an American.
In Cub Scouts, the ranks are (in order): Wolf, Bear, and Webelos (a weird name that comes from condensing “we believe in being loyal scouts”)
Boy Scout (BSA) ranks are: Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star, Life, and Eagle wit Eagle Scout being the highest rank you can attain.
interestingly enough, there is actually optional pre- cub scout ranks of Bobcat and Tiger ranks….
Bobcat is below Wolf. There’s also Tiger cubs, but I think that was just to make first graders feel special.
yeah, I never did Tiger or Bobcat. I was just amused that Tiger is mentioning cub scouts when there is the rank of Tiger, even though you are probably right about it’s importance
Dont’ forget the Bear Cubs ^^
I ended up running the whole gamut- Tiger to Eagle, something I’m kinda proud of and can actually thank my parents for (since they made start early). Thing is, the entire Cub scout program is entirely optional. It has no bearing in what you do for Boy Scouts, aside from a little bit of prior experience. The only thing you get to show for it is “The Arrow of Light” award- and it’s never really mentioned again. Tiger Scouts I hardly even remember… I did that way back in Kindergarten!
It was all very fun to me, though, going though it.
Scout since Tiger Cub. X3 …and a proud Eagle. X3
Very interesting. Nice to know there’s other Eagle scouts who are a part of this!
heh. I never made Eagle scout. I was one badge off or something like that. I wasn’t even interested in the ranks, just the camping and events.
Oh boy americans and their scouting things. XD
I’m just jealous cuz our “scouting” was disbanded long ago cuz it was a communist thing back in the day.
Im so glad im an eagle scout, it required tons of my time and effort. Though the rewards and chances i have now was freaking worth it!
As for the comment of the comic; I have to say Tiger need a large serving of humble pie. I say, lol I wouldn’t surprised if there was something backfiring him for this. XD Oh Karma, U so funny. lol
when I was in Cub scouts, I qualified for bear 4 times and then finally sneaked into the Webelos test. passed it and got my patch there, but had to give it back when the scoutleader found out I disobeyed him.
To add insult to the gag,
Eagles, which is the highest in American Scouting,
don’t have cubs. Strange…
(‘_’) I can’t see anything without my glasses.
*ahem* the Eagle rank is part of the Boy Scouts program, not Cub Scouts (see my post above)
Oops sorry… Thought they were the same thing. Only made it to wolf scout then quit due to lack of understanding of the ranking system was. (I took things very literally as a child, so sue me.)
BTW what is a “webelos” and why is it in this rank system?
webelos is a transition rank. when a cub scout becomes a boy scout.
Hey, my doggie’s three years old and he acts 58 months younger than that. Alzheimer’s explains everything! Thank you Tiger!
so how does a -2 year old dog act?
(since 3 years is only 36 months)
Could be more embarrassing… that dog could be a girl…
now that’s something that’ll make you feel akward all week xD
There’s only one phrase that fits this strip. “Open mouth, Insert foot.”
Gotta love Tiger all the way!
Tiger looks…fluffier, today, or is it an impression?
it’s the butterstouch icecream that makes his hair poofier x3
And gives it that lovely color!
Ah Tiger. Your…. your ok.
Judging by appearance and ignoring breed. Oh, Tiger…
yay more Tiger!
To be honest, I’ve always had trouble considering these breeds of dogs as anything else than “dignifiedly old (and Scottish).”
Me too, I think its the beard and monopoly that did it.
Once you hear one yapping incessantly, that image vanishes
If you slow the yapping down and translate it, they’re yelling “darn kids, get off my lawn” very very fast.
So, what is this I hear about psychoses?
How I love a good Tiger one-off.
Don’t mess with the terrier, Tiger!
Tiger is here again! Yaaay for psychoses. XD
Three year lol
That terrior is as old as the comic!!!! XD
Maybe we should look back to see if he’s appeared as a puppy?
I don’t think he does, I just finished combing the archives. That would be some insane forward planning if he did though. o.O
Nice pun by Rick there
lol,he doesn’t look a bit like 3 years old,or maby it’s just the heir that blinds us
And Marvin just face-palmed.
It must really suck to be “forever 21″ if that’s when Alzheimer’s starts setting in.
Mon: “Hey, today’s your graduation day!”
Tue: “Hey, today’s your graduation day!”
Wed: “Hey, today’s your graduation day!”
Praise and cookies to you for actually understanding what I meant!
Well, you know what they say about old Peoples, it takes one to know one! XD
(Please no “Rick is young” rants, I know he is XP)
Cute Tiger !
Your little cute boy
My Jack Russell is the same as the “old” dog in this. He looks ancient, but (oddly enough) is only 3.
Nice to see Tiger getting out and about when he’s NOT looking for Zach.
Getting out of his mind, more like.
At this point, Billy started to break down in tears for his grandmothers alzheimers got to the point where she even forgot she had a grandson
……yea, i know it a bad joke….so ger’off mah back
I thought it was funny.
I just went trough the entire comic :3 I know some basics but why doesn’t he get rid of Bino every time he opens his mouth I suddenly feel an urge to punch/kill something * goes to his xbox360 and mowes downs hives in Prototype * I feel a lot better )))
Bino has this effect on most of the readers.
Tiger should dispose of him. That’d win him a scout medal!
There’s not a merit badge or medal for murder.
There must be something for volunteering to help people in the hospital. Maybe for helping someone GET in the hospital…
Yeah, I’m terrible. Sue me.
How about a “Helping-the-community-by-removing-a-very-bothersome-pest” badge?
Nah, think of it as ‘community service’.
Because seeing him hospitalized is so much better!
i know how2 you feel…love that game btw
how* typo O.o
dun dun dun epic game epic comic but making such a unlikeable character just doesn’t feel right kinda like Pete : there both Jerks of cosmic proportions ps I do wonder what’s with his obsession for King !!! O.o?
Tiger, that’s stereotyping. …But your cute anyway.
Oh, haha, I thought today was Sunday, seeing at it’s a public holiday here and was all like “Wuh, Rick’s updating on Sundays now?”
It depends on what time zone you are in. Where Rick is, he updates at midnight on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday but depending on where you are it’ll obviously come at different times. I get them @ 10PM the night before!
i almost said i wish I lived where you did, viath, because I get them at 1 am (eastern time), but then I realized that I still get them at the same time as you. Well actually, assuming you live somewhere in California or on the west coast, I do wish i lived where you lived
Can someone explain what alt text is please? I’ve been confused about it for months XD
Never mind, I found Google.
I feel like most questions end that way
Boy, Sasha sure does look muscular, even moreso than usual
404: Sasha not found. Please try again tomorrow
And here I thought Tiger would be a Tiger Cub Scout… because his name is Ti–grrrrkkk!
He’ll kill you!! He’ll kill your whole family!!!
Hrmm… Actually, to me the dog doesn’t look old.
But then, I am used to old and somewhat sick dogs, so I look more for signs of the fur getting ruffled an’ thin and such.
Curse you genetics! I’m not old!
And on Wednesday’s strip, Tiger gets to complain how kids nowadays listen to terrible music, how they all dress wrong (wear the wrong kind of collar, I guess?), and how they never respect their elders!
Oh, and how all of them should get off his lawn, too.
Speaking of scouts…
“Hey Marvin, what does the scouter says about the award for helping old people cross the street?”
ITS OVER 9000!!!
You, sir, have just won my cookie
I just finished baking more. -hands Frank a replacement cookie-
And the score is Tiger = 0 and Marvin = 1. Not counting Marvin’s previous winnings of course.
Isn’t the entire point behind keeping score to COUNT the previous winnings? <.<
And thats all I have to say about that.
I was going to comment on the return of my favorite character, Tiger, but then he got pushed out of his spot by my new all time favorite character: Young Terrier with Misleading Appearance! I will call him Ytma
Please tell me you did not just make that reference
Since I wasn’t referencing anything on purpose, then yeah, I can tell you that
No, his name is Willoughby.
three years old?
its because the comic is three years old
My most favorite, so far.
I like Terriers.
I just read through 4 years worth of comic in 3 days. I wanna keep going! we demand you reach into the future and post the next four years worth of comics!
pay attention, it’s been three years.
Well, the comic has crossed four calendar years.
Oh Tiger you’re such a tease.
I was waiting for somebody to say that. Especially with those trees in the background looking so ripped
I think Tiger was dropped on his head when he was a puppy.
…Why i keep expecting thesame joke but whit an old chihuahua…
