Hey guys! Did you know that I have a short story for sale that has nothing to do with Housepets whatsoever? (Posting this for the people who don’t read newsposts)
Just in case you wanted to know!
Oh wow this is awesome!
I never expected a tickle scene in this comic. So awesome!
It had to happen sooner or later and Zachs the best one for it
Tickle torture… the worst kind of torture
accept for those that aren’t tickleish
the word is except, Nether
And wow! Bino hanged too??
Not really a big surprise, no?
Are you sure it’s a good idea to challenge Rule 4 like that?
what’s rule four?
Rule 4: There is no Rule 4.
Rule 4: (of the Housepets! posting rules)
Don’t correct others’ grammar or spelling unless they specifically request it; this is annoying and downright rude.
what’re you talking about? tickling’s awesome >;3
Not unless it really annoys you >:(
You’ll end up like this
that’s a great way to get them to take you seriously next time.
So think twice before you tickle
Gotta love the “waterboard” alt
lol I kind of expected something like this would have happened to Bino but not for that reason.
Pre-emptive measures, my friend. They anticipated his interference and put a stop to it before it started!
Best way to stop disasters is prevent them!
Was it Socrates or Smokey who said that?
well there is that and they probably were out to get him like how Tiger was … someone needs to tell Tiger about this
Of course, that didn’t work for Japan
so it was commented, so it shall be. though I don’t think anyone predicted Bino being imprisoned. Tiger is betraying the dogs for no reason.
I think he has a good enough reason to get back at all the dogs.
Tickling… hanging upside down… WHEN WILL THE MADNESS END? JUST GIVE THE DOGS WHAT THEY WANT, IT CAN’T BE SO IMPORTAINT THAT SO MANY ANIMALS HAVE TO SUFFE-huh? Wait, they want your ICE CREAM SUPPLY? SCREW ANIMAL SAFETY, THIS IS WAR!!! *Puts on helmet*
Better keep the ice cream locked down before tiger finds it! LOL
*looks in my tub of ice-cream and it’s empty* TIGER!!!
*hides all the ice-cream by putting frozen broccoli labels over the original labels* Phew, safe at last
Poor Bino! what an awesome strip
What a twist!! Bino?
rogue agents don’t always work alone, i think?..
So, Bino isn’t actually in the war? Huh. GUess Tiger joined the cats for nothing.
Also, poor Zach. He doesn’t deserve to be hung upside down. All that blood to the head can’t be good.
On the bright side though, the lack of blood to the feet should numb the tickle after-pains!
Or as I said before Tiger could be a spy since he would have know Bino was already in trouble since he slept in and wasn’t there for the start of the war and was just using that as an excuse to join the cats and mess with them.
ALERT! DOG SPY IN THE BASE!!! PROTECT THE BRIEFCASE!!!
Hah, waterboarding. Yeah that would have been a bit too dark.
Red Lobster standing by. Come in Dog fort, over
Simply red, standing by.
Red cross, standing by
Red October, standing by
Big red, standing by
red red wine, standing by.
but that didn’t include red lobster or red cross, so that’s not what we’re doing.
REDD FOX STANDIN’ BY!
Red Skelton, standing by
And all the paw/tickling furries go wild! Bino’s statement and predicament is exactly why I don’t sleep in anymore.
You’d think that Bino would be the one behind all this nonsence, but that has now been proven wrong.
Yea really, I am surprised he isn’t leading the dogs side.
This rasies the question…..
Who is leading the dog side?
That would explain how they are winning, she could see all their movements!
Two things here.
One: Zach is just a bystander caught up in something he knows nothing about. Funny.
Two: Bino is hanging by his ankles upside down. And he’s not injured this time. Cool!
Oh, those people who sleep ’til noon!
I hate ‘em
Bu bu bu but I thought we could be friends :*(
yeah, they’re horrible. (I wake up at 11:30 )
What about people who go to sleep at 9 am, sleep till 4 pm, wake up and work the graveyard shift while all other people are tucked in for the night. Do u hate those people, kuz I’m one of those people
nope. we’re cool.
If you are in America, that means you should be working right now. I’M TELLING YOUR BOSS ABOUT THIS!!!!!!!!
It’s the Fourth of July.
Only work-a-holicks go to work today
I worked today…I needed the money.
Awww, I feel sorry for you. Have a cookie for being responsible enough to work on a holiday
This is why I’m glad in 14 and don’t have to work for another year
I was talking about people who go to sleep at a sane hour (say, midnight) and even then wake up at midday, and complain that the stores are closing despite them having just gotten up
So you hate people who need more sleep than you?
The operative word there is “complain”
I now dub Yeltsin the hold-down dog!
Bino wasn’t the start of it all?! Who could be leading the dog side then…
Neighbor dog #2
Same here, most probably Fido.
Or it could be Peanut. Now that’s a twist! XD
Exactly, it’s all been a ploy this whole time. Three years in secret planning, and now Daisy reveals the truth…
I knew it! I knew Daisy had a secret life. XD
Peanut and Grape.
Nah, Grape is on the cats side. Peanut must be the one leading. He has been reading too many books on war tactics.
If it’s King that would explain Bino being upside-down.
I still don’t get what dog fort is
It’s the dogs home base. Looks to me like some sort of tree house.
*facepalm* no I get THAT. dog fort is a ref to something else
Know your memes! http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/dog-fort
Now that I have been reminded of Lobster Corgi, King must appear in a lobster suit.
I don’t think the Geneva Convention is irrelevant at this point lol Those poor ol POWs.
lucky Zach… able to get tickled >.>
Suddenly the gasps and squees of a hundred Pawfeather Publishing customers were heard throughout the land.
Oh the humanity… wait…
that doesn’t sound quiet right. :3
Happy Birthday USA!
Happy birthday USA~
Gosh, now Zach’s officially a POW? Oh the humanity///
I just realized how terribly disfigured the brown dog’s chest looks.
Odd. It’s actually painful to look at.
You can’t see his chest
Uh? We don’t actually see more than a glimpse of his chest because of the big, muscular arms…
Sneaky! Way to comment on the musculature of the characters without risking getting strangled!
well it WAS sneaky…
Ack! Not intended! *hides*
Also, happy 4th, I guess? We here on the almost exact opposite of the world don’t exactly celebrate it, but…
Pfft, Zach’s way more buff ;D Though Bino’s collar is looking especially prime today.
WHAT ARE YOU EVEN SAYING???
Heehee, Bino being a prisoner doesn’t surprise me at all. On a totally unrelated note, I am currently on vacation in Germany.
Wow, Bino actualy missed the action when we were all so sure that he started it
Red lobster standing by. Come in dogfort, over…
…This is dogfort reading you loud and clear Red Lobster, over.
Well, with a friend like Bino on their side,
the dogs wouldn’t need any enemy.
by the way
“HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!”
HAPPY 4TH EVERYBODY also lol
please put the 4th of July celebrations in the forums. this is for commenring on the comic. at least include a comment on the comic with the celebration like spiritkitsune did.
This looks like it was meant to be a reply to one of the ones above, so it would be allowed in context
Obviously this is pawsome. *giggles* Nice perspective stuff too!
Bino is just Bino.
How deep does this “war” actually go?
“Once upon a time, before dogs and cats hated each other, there was a cat and a dog living peacefully together… until the dog ate the cats breakfast by mistake, and the cat yelled “THIS MEANS WAR!!” ” lol, couldn’t resist
So, Peanut and Grape started the war?
OF COURSE! How did we miss that?!
So we’ve finally found our two masterminds our adorable duo…HA!!! XD
Haha, I just started this series while waiting for another comment to load…now I’m caught up! I’ll definitely be following, it’s great. ^-^ Happy 4th.
By the way Rick, was it your intention for the war to match with the festivities?
only if i see fireworks
where did they get a dungeon???????
It’s probably someones basement (fido’s house has one, if I recall) or mabye *SHOCK* it’s a prison cell owned by the ferrets (they probably wanted it to reanact D&D or somethhing…)
It’ probably Tarot’s basement
That’s actually catlike, Bino.
I didn’t think he’d recur as fast as he did.
Yeltsin is not a good friend.
This comic needs moar ponies :3
Didn’t some one mention something earlier about Yeltsin being involved with this war?
Licking the feet. That’s just mean!
That was a feather
Indeed. Still mean!
i love that second frame. but the last quote “can’t a dog sleep til noon without missing everything?” …. actually no, one can’t. if you’re asleep you WILL miss everything. So that struck me as odd and thus i don’t get it. can anyone clear the confusion in my head? T-T
Bino is so selfish and careless, he doesn’t know that things will happen without him there, because he thinks the world revolves around him.
That’s the joke!
Ooooohhhhhh okay ^-^
As Rick says, that’s the joke! Bino’s statement is the punchline of the strip.
Oh bino, you should have slept earlier last night…
Oh.. poor Bino, you should have slept earlier last night
Bunnies do not like having their feet touched, let alone tickled. I know this personally.
They also don’t like having their bellies exposed, so Zach is in alot of discomfort at this point
Wait, rogue agents always hunt in packs. Don’t worry Zach, I will be your wingman
Serious pun in there but I dont have a profile pic so u guys don’t get it
Heh heh! Now that was unexpected!
Zach’s smile is alittle creepy in 2nd frame.
Yea i know its a bit creepy
I don’t know whether this is Agony of the Feet (Paws) or Joy of the Feet (Paws). Sadly, given that Yeltsin is involved, I’m inclined to think that the tickle-torture was stretched over a significant length of time, and therefore leans towards Agony of the Feet (Paws).
Also, see TV Tropes if you don’t fully understand my reference; search Agony of the Feet.
“Joy of the Feet” doesn’t seem to exist anymore
Also, everyone else? Be forewarned: TV Tropes may be hazardous to your health
There never was a Joy of the Feet; I was simply making a modification based around the opposite of the actual Agony of the Feet trope. In conclusion, and in accordance with TV Tropes itself, please read the entry “Don’t Explain the Joke” to see exactly why I failed here. Thank you.
I like this comic a lot my favorite character is king
Never forget, we’re phantom agents!
I lolled at Bino being strung up on that wall as well, didn’t come as a surprise though, still funny :3
Bino doesn’t have a tag on his collar.
You can see it obscuring half of the buckle.
Huh…I think I see it??? :l
i see it took me 4 hrs but i found it!
Heh talk about over doing it. XD How did Rex get chloroform anyways?
(????:He got actual chloroform from an actual store in the middle of a non-actual war… Start thinking man.
It’s actually vaporub.
or smelly socks
Wait! why is Tiger involved if Bino isn’t even playing. cuz Tiger said he was just playng to get revenge on Bino.
What do you mean playing, do you think this is a GAME?
Waterboarding isn’t dark, just wet.
U do know what waterboarding is don’t u?
@ the last panel: wouldn’t hanging upside down like that, you know, kill them after a while? o_O
I mean idunno, I could be wrong.
But we haven’t seen large objects fall on anyone with amusing results yet! D=
You forget the nuke balloon
Yes, but the nuke-loon was no anvil.
That’s what we need, an anvil-loon!
I don’t see how that would work but i’m just trying to rationalizing it.
Ha… i thought the fether was a tongue.. I was like ‘who’s licking Zach’s fe…oh.. well eather way would have been effective.
I doubt chloroform was used in panel 1, so what it is?
I don’t got a clue but if it is then isn’t that kinda illegal?
It was most possibly smelly socks
Is it wrong that I feel no sympathy towards Zach because I used to do the same thing to my brothers
