Not For The Faint Of Foot

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! :)

    • huntersunday


    • Venom

      I never expected a tickle scene in this comic. So awesome!

      • destingun

        It had to happen sooner or later :) and Zachs the best one for it

  2. rtlstien

    Tickle torture… the worst kind of torture

    • netherwolf

      accept for those that aren’t tickleish

      • The Moon Howler

        the word is except, Nether
        And wow! Bino hanged too??

        • Jinxed

          Not really a big surprise, no?

        • Frank

          Are you sure it’s a good idea to challenge Rule 4 like that?

          • deathcloak

            what’s rule four?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Rule 4: There is no Rule 4.

          • Frank

            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.

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      what’re you talking about? tickling’s awesome >;3

    • JokkePokke

      Gotta love the “waterboard” alt :D

  3. IceKitsune

    lol I kind of expected something like this would have happened to Bino but not for that reason.

    • Shady Kitsune

      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?
      *philosophic pipe*

      • rallyjr

        well there is that and they probably were out to get him like how Tiger was … someone needs to tell Tiger about this

      • Frank

        Of course, that didn’t work for Japan

  4. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    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.

  5. Pax


    • Koran

      Better keep the ice cream locked down before tiger finds it! LOL

      • anon_omis

        *looks in my tub of ice-cream and it’s empty* TIGER!!!

        • Legion

          *hides all the ice-cream by putting frozen broccoli labels over the original labels* Phew, safe at last

  6. Kondog

    Poor Bino! what an awesome strip

  7. Tides

    What a twist!! Bino?

  8. netherwolf

    rogue agents don’t always work alone, i think?..

  9. Roadrunner

    Oh, silly

  10. The Wolf Kin

    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.

    • Pax

      On the bright side though, the lack of blood to the feet should numb the tickle after-pains!

    • IceKitsune

      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.

      • anon_omis


  11. Avansis

    Hah, waterboarding. Yeah that would have been a bit too dark.

    Red Lobster standing by. Come in Dog fort, over

    • CalaverX11

      Simply red, standing by.

      • Draven

        Red cross, standing by

  12. Sonic Fox

    And all the paw/tickling furries go wild! Bino’s statement and predicament is exactly why I don’t sleep in anymore.

  13. AuvaAkita

    You’d think that Bino would be the one behind all this nonsence, but that has now been proven wrong.

    • silverfang16

      Yea really, I am surprised he isn’t leading the dogs side.

      • AuvaAkita

        This rasies the question…..
        Who is leading the dog side?

        • anon_omis


          • silverfang16

            That would explain how they are winning, she could see all their movements!

  14. KnightPuppy

    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!

  15. Frank

    Oh, those people who sleep ’til noon!

    I hate ‘em

    • Yehoshua

      Bu bu bu but I thought we could be friends :*(

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      yeah, they’re horrible. (I wake up at 11:30 :D )

    • Legion

      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

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        nope. we’re cool.

      • Nikola

        If you are in America, that means you should be working right now. I’M TELLING YOUR BOSS ABOUT THIS!!!!!!!!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          It’s the Fourth of July.

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            Only work-a-holicks go to work today

          • silverfang16

            I worked today…I needed the money.

          • Legion

            Awww, I feel sorry for you. Have a cookie for being responsible enough to work on a holiday

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            This is why I’m glad in 14 and don’t have to work for another year

      • Frank

        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

        • Gabu

          So you hate people who need more sleep than you?

        • Frank

          The operative word there is “complain”

  16. GameCobra

    I now dub Yeltsin the hold-down dog!

  17. Daggy

    Bino wasn’t the start of it all?! Who could be leading the dog side then…


    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      Neighbor dog #2

    • rtlstien

      Probably Fido

      • kurowolfe

        Same here, most probably Fido.
        Or it could be Peanut. Now that’s a twist! XD

    • Argent Stonecutter




      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent


        • Tides

          Exactly, it’s all been a ploy this whole time. Three years in secret planning, and now Daisy reveals the truth…

          • silverfang16

            I knew it! I knew Daisy had a secret life. XD

    • Indagare

      Peanut and Grape.

      • silverfang16

        Nah, Grape is on the cats side. Peanut must be the one leading. He has been reading too many books on war tactics.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      If it’s King that would explain Bino being upside-down.

  18. anon_omis

    I still don’t get what dog fort is

  19. Ryufire

    I don’t think the Geneva Convention is irrelevant at this point lol Those poor ol POWs.

  20. sonic id furreh!!!

    lucky Zach… able to get tickled >.>

  21. QuetzaDrake

    Suddenly the gasps and squees of a hundred Pawfeather Publishing customers were heard throughout the land.

  22. Snowmon

    :( Oh the humanity… wait…
    that doesn’t sound quiet right. :3

    Happy Birthday USA!

    • kurowolfe

      Happy birthday USA~
      Gosh, now Zach’s officially a POW? Oh the humanity///

  23. Jinxed

    I just realized how terribly disfigured the brown dog’s chest looks.
    Odd. It’s actually painful to look at.

    • Rick Griffin

      You can’t see his chest

    • Erkhyan

      Uh? We don’t actually see more than a glimpse of his chest because of the big, muscular arms…

      • Frank

        Sneaky! Way to comment on the musculature of the characters without risking getting strangled!

        • Leitrean

          well it WAS sneaky…

        • Erkhyan

          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…

      • Hera Ledro

        Pfft, Zach’s way more buff ;D Though Bino’s collar is looking especially prime today.

    • Grim-one


  24. Grip

    Heehee, Bino being a prisoner doesn’t surprise me at all. On a totally unrelated note, I am currently on vacation in Germany.

  25. Draven

    Wow, Bino actualy missed the action when we were all so sure that he started it

  26. Loki Impisi

    Red lobster standing by. Come in dogfort, over…

    …This is dogfort reading you loud and clear Red Lobster, over.

  27. spiritkitsune

    Well, with a friend like Bino on their side,
    the dogs wouldn’t need any enemy.

    • spiritkitsune

      by the way


  28. tbird000666

    HAPPY 4TH EVERYBODY also lol

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      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.

      • Frank

        This looks like it was meant to be a reply to one of the ones above, so it would be allowed in context

      • Foxstar


  29. Fuzzypaws

    Obviously this is pawsome. *giggles* Nice perspective stuff too!

  30. Alphonse

    Bino is just Bino.
    How deep does this “war” actually go?

    • Koran

      “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

      • Ninja lurker

        So, Peanut and Grape started the war?

        OF COURSE! How did we miss that?!

        • Grim-one

          So we’ve finally found our two masterminds our adorable duo…HA!!! XD

  31. Chi-chan

    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.

  32. Frank

    By the way Rick, was it your intention for the war to match with the festivities?

    • Leitrean

      only if i see fireworks

  33. Leitrean

    where did they get a dungeon???????

    • Koran

      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…)

    • stghost

      It’ probably Tarot’s basement ;)

  34. Kitch

    That’s actually catlike, Bino.

  35. Steve

    More Yeltsin!

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      I didn’t think he’d recur as fast as he did.

  36. Pea

    Yeltsin is not a good friend.

  37. Blaze

    This comic needs moar ponies :3

  38. Luffy

    Didn’t some one mention something earlier about Yeltsin being involved with this war?

  39. Hoheh

    Licking the feet. That’s just mean!

    • Legion

      That was a feather

      • Hoheh

        Indeed. Still mean!

  40. ZincChloride

    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

    • Dragongal

      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.

    • Rick Griffin

      That’s the joke!

      • ZincChloride

        Ooooohhhhhh okay ^-^

    • Hera Ledro

      As Rick says, that’s the joke! Bino’s statement is the punchline of the strip.

  41. KSR

    Oh bino, you should have slept earlier last night…

  42. KSR

    Oh.. poor Bino, you should have slept earlier last night :)

  43. Legion

    Bunnies do not like having their feet touched, let alone tickled. I know this personally.

    • Legion

      They also don’t like having their bellies exposed, so Zach is in alot of discomfort at this point

  44. Draven

    Wait, rogue agents always hunt in packs. Don’t worry Zach, I will be your wingman

    • Draven

      Serious pun in there but I dont have a profile pic so u guys don’t get it

  45. xhunterko

    Heh heh! Now that was unexpected!

  46. Dragongal

    Zach’s smile is alittle creepy in 2nd frame.

    • King

      Yea i know its a bit creepy

  47. Hera Ledro

    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.

    • Frank

      “Joy of the Feet” doesn’t seem to exist anymore

      Also, everyone else? Be forewarned: TV Tropes may be hazardous to your health

      • Hera Ledro

        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.


  48. King

    I like this comic a lot my favorite character is king

  49. Argent Stonecutter

    Never forget, we’re phantom agents!

  50. Immorale Punk

    I lolled at Bino being strung up on that wall as well, didn’t come as a surprise though, still funny :3

  51. Vladimir Zharkov

    Bino doesn’t have a tag on his collar.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      You can see it obscuring half of the buckle.

      • Grim-one

        Huh…I think I see it??? :l

        • tbird000666

          i see it took me 4 hrs but i found it!

  52. gaboris

    Heh talk about over doing it. XD How did Rex get chloroform anyways? :D
    (????:He got actual chloroform from an actual store in the middle of a non-actual war… Start thinking man.
    Silence-silence-silence! DX)

  53. Dogs Rule27

    Wait! why is Tiger involved if Bino isn’t even playing. cuz Tiger said he was just playng to get revenge on Bino.

    • Draven

      What do you mean playing, do you think this is a GAME?

  54. FlintFang

    Waterboarding isn’t dark, just wet.

  55. Tara

    @ 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.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Toon physics?

      • Shady Kitsune

        But we haven’t seen large objects fall on anyone with amusing results yet! D=

        • Draven

          You forget the nuke balloon

          • Hera Ledro

            Yes, but the nuke-loon was no anvil.

            That’s what we need, an anvil-loon!

          • Dogs Rule27

            I don’t see how that would work but i’m just trying to rationalizing it.

  56. Ninetailsgun

    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.

  57. Z24

    I doubt chloroform was used in panel 1, so what it is?

    • Dogs Rule27

      I don’t got a clue but if it is then isn’t that kinda illegal?

      • Z24

        It was most possibly smelly socks

  58. Legion

    Is it wrong that I feel no sympathy towards Zach because I used to do the same thing to my brothers
