      • Ninja522

        Arrg, I don’t know why I keep forgetting to check the alt text on these last few pages.

      • WingedWolfGirl

        Odds are he’s still tied up where we last saw him. :D

  2. Dissension

    Maxwell is okay with this. x3

    • Tides

      I’ve gotta say, I’d probably have a similar reaction in this situation. I laughed.

      Why not? It is only water.

      • darkgloomie

        I think it’s the whole “my girlfriend was spying on me and ruining the efforts of my team”.

        Then again, ’tis just a game. He sure knows how to take it easy

    The Spy who Splashed Me

    • malinik

      hah! an austin powers referance

      • rtlstien

        Actually it was more of a James Bond reference, but I guess it works either way.

        • anon_omis

          It’s an Austin Powers reference that is a James Bond reference

        • stghost

          It’s a reference inside reference! -_-


          • Grip

            A reference within a reference? We have to go deeper! INCEPTION

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Watching Casino Royale (2006) now. The reboot. So THAT’s where he gets the Aston Martin.


            Housepets: Reboot.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            First Bond movie I can recall where the last scene isn’t 007 in bed with the Good Bond Girl.

          • rtlstien

            “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” was the only Bond film before Casino Royale that didn’t end with Bond and the Girl making out or in bed with.

            This is a little off topic now.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            OK, let’s talk about Housepets: the reboot!

      This made me lol

      just read all the puns…

  4. IceKitsune

    Ok fine but I still don’t understand why she didn’t just tell him in the first place.

    • Avansis

      What kind of spy would reveal herself being a spy? It’s not how spying works.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        if they fall in love with someone on the other side and the war is over, they would do it.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Because the time wasn’t right. They were still playing war.

      • IceKitsune

        Look I could buy the whole “It was because she was playing a game” thing if it seemed like her goal wasn’t to stop the thing in the first place by exposing the conspiracy and getting Peanut back. If she cared about playing the war game at all and you know not trying to stop it I could buy that but again as I said her whole reason for being the spy would have stopped the war in the first place and she knew that.

        I’m not saying this point ruins the Arc for me (I still enjoy it quite a bit) but IMO (and apparently no one else feels this way) it does hurt it because the arc would have been basically much,much shorter (but it doesn’t destroy the plot completely however, so its not exactly an Idiot Plot) by Grape doing something very logical that basically anyone would do.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Finding out what happened to Peanut and exposing the conspiracy was part of the game too.

          • IceKitsune

            No it wasn’t because, Peanut only figured it out on accident and only Grape and Peanut knew about it (and Zach but that was after the fact.) If it was part of the Game everyone would have known as it would have been a goal of the game that they would have wanted everyone to go after not just Peanut and Grape. Plus if everyone was meant to look for it and save Peanut it would have completely messed up Keenes plan.

            Also there is the fact that even if that was true it would reenforce my point since Grape at that point would just want the cats to win easier there fore telling Max would make even more sense. Since the goals of the Game and her goals would be the same.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Winning the game is a meta-game goal.

          • IceKitsune

            And whats your point? It still doesn’t explain why she didn’t tell Max in the first place. Because winning the Meta-Game (figuring out the conspiracy and saving Peanut) would be a more important game goal then the War itself.

            So far the only reason anyone has really given me basically boils down to ‘just because’ Which is a terrible answer that just shows weakness in the plot of the arc, making me right.

          • IceKitsune

            Let me add something to my last post. Since winning the Meta-Game (saving Peanut ect.) would win both parts of the game it would make even more sense for her to tell Max about it since it would win the Meta Game even faster and therefore win both parts of the game.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            Grape had no way of knowing how deep the conspiracy went. for all she knew, Max could have known all about this and was working for Keene. telling him could have alerted Keene that Peanut wasn’t the only one who knew too much.

          • IceKitsune

            That would work but only if she knew that Keene was Maxs supplier which she didn’t. And if she suspected that Max was in on it that shows an abnormal level of distrust of her own boyfriend (I mean come on that would basically imply she though he helped kidnap Peanut) I know hes a bit of a jerk but that’s a level beyond jerk that I doubt Grape (or anybody) would suspect him of.

          • IceKitsune

            Also she would need to know that Keene (or at least whoever the supplier of the weapons was since she couldn’t have know it was Keene at the time) was the head of the conspiracy, which she had absolutely no way of knowing since all she had was an address.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            when conspiracy is afoot, trust no one in power. Max was the one leading the cats, and that means the mastermind would either have him working for him, or would keep an eye on him to get info.

          • IceKitsune

            I’m sorry the one person you should be able to trust is your significant other. All that would show is their relationship is much weaker then anyone thought. I guess that really could be what Rick is going for here but I’m not sure enough to say 100%

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It’s a strange game. The only way to win is to advance the storyline. Using your imagination.

          • Avansis

            I for one think that Grape and Peanut kinda just played their own game within the game. A war began which drove Cats and Dogs against each other, but what I’ve seen it’s not an ordinary watergun war, it’s like a game of pretend. They copy all the “cool” war stuff they’ve seen in television, along with all the terrible hollywood clichés. When Peanut found about the conspiracy and told about it to Grape she just rolled with it and started her own secret agent game within the war scenario.

            Sure she could have told Max being a double agent but I that would have broken the character Grape was playing. As I said earlier, spies just doesn’t do that as it could endanger the mission. Only help the agents get in the movies are usually from one sidekick which joins the action in middle of the movie, like Zach did in this one.

          • IceKitsune

            Except there was no indication that they weren’t taking it seriously. (out side of Maybe and I mean Maybe Max being an idiot about Intelligence and Counter-Intelligence, though again as I said before that could easily be his overconfidence in his own abilities) They were inserting spies and capturing people to interrogate them to me that shows seriousness. And again Grape was clearly not caring about the war due to the fact that she wanted to stop it there was no indications she was “playing a character” as you said. She seemed legitimately worried and angry when she confronted Keene about Peanut and I don’t think she would have been if she wasn’t taking it seriously.

          • IceKitsune

            http://www.housepetscomic.com/2011/06/22/nice-job-being-stealthy-guys/ Heck in this comic right here Max even says they are taking this seriously. (third panel) that makes you even more wrong.

          • Draven

            Is was all a game, but some used the opportunity to turn it into more than a game while others remained peacefully ignorant to the deeper plot to the game. Most did this just for fun, Grape however went further with it and in the end everyone was mostly happy.

          • Avansis

            Okay, I admit that might have been a bit reaching. I guess we’ll never know. Maybe before Zach came to speak with her she didn’t have the notes yet and spreading the word out being double agent would have been a mistake? Maybe she felt like it was something she wanted to do herself? Or maybe she thought he wouldn’t have helped her? Well that would have been poor thinking coming from Grape, but no one’s perfect. Or maybe because if she’d told him, we wouldn’t have this scene playing out exactly like this.

          • IceKitsune

            Except I doubt she could have gotten to the dogs (because remember she was with Max and Joey when Zach was being released) base, gotten the notes and gotten back to try to convince Max (more then once from the look of it) Joey was the Plant before Zach was dropped off.

            If she wanted to do it her self why bring Zach along for the mission and in fact why wait to go get Peanut at all at that point.

            Your second point brings up my trust issues point I stated above in response to Brent (which I doubt is true but I guess it could be what Rick was going for it just seems so very unlikely) and if he wouldn’t (which IMO there is no way he wouldn’t help her) help her he would be a much bigger Jerk then I thought.

            And your last point is well stupid, there were many different ways he could have done the same thing between the two of them.

          • Avansis

            So you think she had the notes before Zach got captured? Then why didn’t she went after Peanut earlier as she didn’t ask help from Max? Meh, I got nothing anymore. Sure it would have been easy to insert Max to the rescue party, but why not? I don’t think it will be ever explained in future (being a rather minor detail story wise) and it’s going to be one of the many mysteries of Housepets! That is unless someone else can come up with something better.

          • IceKitsune

            Yeah I think we are going to have to just agree to disagree about this being a problem or not at this point. We’ve run this into the ground and I’m kind of tired of debating it.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I think Avansis was right when he said it was a game within a game. There was just too much they were doing purely for style, so much so it made me think it would turn out to be another movie.

    • Mouko

      Because he can’t be trusted with a secret? He strikes me as the sort to blab.

  5. Draven

    We all wondered how he’d take it, he like it very much.

    • IceKitsune

      It was obvious he didn’t care if there was a spy in the first place so it’s really no surprise (IMO) that he didn’t care his girlfriend was the spy. It would actually be kind of stupid,and make him a huge jerk (more so then he’s already been described as), if he did care since she was doing it to save her best friend.

    • anon_omis

      He took it……like a boss

      • Chaoder

        But he didn’t throw it on the ground.

  7. VOLK

    In Soviet Russia, spy thinks you’re hot? No wait…

    • Chip Uni

      Soviet spies are ALWAYS beautiful. Watch James Bond!

  8. rtlstien

    Bino’s probably still tied upside down.

    Either the dogs forgot about him… or they didn’t care

    • Koush

      Hahaha, why do I think it’s the second option? XD

      And Max is right! ;D

    • Ninja522

      Both options sound lovely to me. I don’t mind which one ends up being the case.

      • Shady Kitsune

        Poor Bino, everyone loves to hate him. XD

        • Tensa Zangetsu

          If it were me I would let him out. Just to be nice ψ(`∇´)ψ

      • Ninja522

        After a bit of thought I realized that I do care. I kind of hope they just forgot about him and will remember in a little bit to go get him. No matter how annoying he can be sometimes it’s rude to want people to not care.

    • Luffy

      Either way, it’s still funny. XD

  9. domino

    cool now i cant wait to see what happens on monday with the new arch

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      Monday will be a one-off, and so will Wednesday and Friday, probably.

      • Alphonse

        There is really no predictability with those one-offs.

        • AuvaAkita

          Umm, forgive me if i seem dumb, but what are one-offs?

          • Draven

            Basically just comics that could be about anything, used as fillers between story arcs. And there is no need to feel dumb, that’s why people invented questions.

          • AuvaAkita

            Well dumb isn’t exactly the word i was looking for, but it’s late and my mental dictionary has taken a vacation lol

          • anon_omis

            And anyone who can make a gravatar like yours isn’t dumb in my book

          • AuvaAkita

            Thanks but it wasn’t much really, just a little tweaking and voila ^^

  10. AuvaAkita

    Where did Bino go? The world may never know!!

    • NickCrotser

      But, Bino knows how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll pop!

      • AuvaAkita

        Ah 1, ah 2 ah 3 *CRUNCH!!* ._.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The world may never care!!

      • Dissension

        Hey, I like Bino…

        • Ninja522

          Yeah, Dissension likes Bino so since there’s at least 1 person who likes the character then you’re not allowed to be too harshly mean. (especially since Bino is basically me if I had taken the lemons life threw at me and threw them back instead of making lemonade. I’ve even got the same brothers basically.)

          • Frank

            We know Bino is in the wolves’ basement. Max is asking Grape if she saw him when she was there

  11. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    I love max’s personality. “my girlfriend was a spy for the other team. spies are hot”

  12. kimo

    omg i lol’d so hard

    • kimo

      i also went awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  13. malinik

    ha! that was kinda funny

  14. Draven

    Ready everybody…


    • Tensa Zangetsu

      Some people CHEER
      others JEER

  15. Russiarules1

    That’s a pretty lovely scene, mate. As always, nice work.

    Why do I keep saying/writing “mate”? Ugh, I think I have been hanging out too much with people of other countries.

  16. xhunterko

    Bino? Uh, no why do you ask?

  17. NickCrotser

    Housepets: from Babylon with Love

  18. leaffly

    Now that is a nice relationship :3

    • IceKitsune

      Yeah I actually like them together as a couple. Though I obviously would much rather have Grape and Peanut together. (and I hope they do eventually get together)

  19. Alphonse

    Yeah. Alt text.
    That is what I thought.

    Meanwhile, I could not have come up with a better ending myself.

  20. TheLaw

    Grape Sandwich is… Salt

  21. Jaxon Night

    wow….not what i thought would happen, then again, what do i know…im not even real!*vanishes*

  22. Ksyzi

    So simple but I laughed ;D
    <3 Max

    • Tides

      Same here, sometimes the simple is all that is needed. Putting it at the end of the arc like this works. Well played, Rick.

    The Great Water War Pt. 2

    There was a great battle, the great water war.
    With the whole neighborhood involved in the uproar.
    The cats and the dogs fought long, fierce, and hard,
    Throwing water balloons across neighborhood yards.
    The cats had attacked with a really big balloon
    But their celebration was over too soon. 
    The dogs returned fire, or water, as it seems,
    I imagine the fields were crisscrossed with new streams.
    Yet deception was brewing among the two sides.
    And soon both were riddled with traitors and spies.
    Poor Zach had been captured and tortured for truths,
    But dear Zach was clueless, he had no good news.
    So the dogs sent him back, to spy on the cats,
    Saying there was another who would watch his back.
    He told this to Grape, who already knew,
    For she was the spy! And she knew what to do.
    She was searching for Peanut, because he was lost.
    She was willing to find him, no matter the cost. 
    They followed a lead that took them to the mall
    Where they found a ferret, not surprising at all.
    He told them his plan to sell water guns,
    But mother nature decided to ruin his fun.
    So he pushed a big button then ran far away,
    But Peanut was there and he saved the day.
    Now everyone’s settled and cozy at home,
    I can’t think of a rhyme so I’ll call it a night.

    • kurowolfe

      Nice one! And the last verse was just XD.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Epic doggeral. And catteral.

      • Draven

        I don’t know what that means, but if I did it epicly it must be good.

        • anon_omis

          Well is an epic fail a good fail? XP

          • Draven

            Rule 16: if you fail in epic proportions, it may become a winning fail.

            Therefor a win

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Doggeral is poetry fit for dogs.

    • Draven

      I also write music, but with no way to record or upload a song, I am at a loss. Sorry

      • Alucai Vivorvel

        It’s fine.
        In fact, I normally can’t stand poetry, but I actually enjoyed that.
        Though that last line messed me up big time, since it broke the rhyming state of mind I was in. x3

      • spiritkitsune

        Hey Draven, your poetry nearly fits on Dirty Diana from
        Michael Jackson XD

      • Draven

        And now my guitar is broken, I am seriously out of luck right now.

  24. TheCrimsonFox

    now that’s thinking like a man!

  25. Vladimir Zharkov

    I haven’t seen anyone else comment this yet so,

  26. anon_omis

    Does anyone else think Grape looks HOT toweling off?

    • Tensa Zangetsu

      That was odd to ask… Not answering

      • anon_omis

        Why? It’s still PG

        • Tensa Zangetsu

          Still not answering >__>

        • teamfortress2

          it is but i wish it wasent

          • teamfortress1

            aint no room for buts soldier

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Max does, for one.

    • Grip

      *raises paw*

      • anon_omis

        Glad to see I’m not alone

        • Miller

          Yeah, me too..

    • Alucai Vivorvel

      I think Grape is too much like a… well, cat, for me to find her attractive. To me, Housepets! is a cute, funny comic with a good story. The characters can be cute, but not… hot.

      Though I’m not saying thinking that’s weird or anything. Read the comic Rascals and tell me you aren’t attracted to at least one of the characters.

      • anon_omis

        Fair nuff, I respect your opinion

    • Frank

      Well if you consider that fur has a higher friction coefficient, then by μ×F we get a temperature increase of… sorry, what was the question?

    • Draven

      I think it’s strange to bring that up, even stranger that I would say yes.

  27. Tensa Zangetsu

    Maxwell you have such a way with words! :/ yeah, no! He’s so blunt!
    Like a very… Uhh…blunt object!

    • Miller

      Does rock fit?

      • Alucai Vivorvel

        Stuck between a rock and a Max… place?
        Nah, doesn’t work.
        And I was thinking more of a 4×4 myself…

        • Draven

          If your gonna go blunt, go with a baseball bat. Classic bluntness.

  28. Firewolf

    Grape has a nice pose in panel one. If I was grape that’d be my profile pic XD

  29. WingedWolfGirl

    Awww :3
    Maxie loves his hot spy girlfriend!

  30. Kitch

    Is that all you ever think about, Max? =P

  31. KSR

    oh~ Rick! you know where Bino went~~

  32. Hera Ledro

    I wonder whose porch that is? The Sandwiches?

    Loved the arc, and I can’t help but wonder if a future one-shot will be comprised of Bino still hung upside down.

    “Guys? Boris? Yeltsin? Anybody? GET ME DOWN FROM HERE!”

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      probably Max’s porch and Grape was just getting a towel out of his house, which is why in the alt-text, Max is asking her if she saw Bino while she was in there.

  33. Misharu

    This scene is adorable and full of fluff and I approve.

          Wanna know how I got these scars? My father was a comedian, and a tickle-monster. One night he goes of funnier than usual, and mommy starts rolling on the floor laughing. He loved it, and rolled. Right. With her. So, me crying from the laughter, he takes to tickling her. He turns to me and sees me crying, and he says, “Why so serious?” He comes at me with wiggling fingers; “Why so serious?” He sticks the fingers under my armpits. “Let’s put a smile on that face!” Aaaanndd…Why so serious?

    If Grape’s the spy, that makes Max the Bond Girl?

    • The_Rippy_One

      Actually, that would make the bunny the bond girl…yay for additional shipping?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        But there’s supposed to be a good Bond girl and a bad Bond girl. If there’s only one girl, she’s the mysterious spy from the competing organization.

        • Jinxed

          Ooh, maybe Peanut is the “good” Bond “girl”.

    Why do I think the last panel was made here just to balance out that one bonus pic from the Year one book?

    • AuvaAkita

      And what is this one bonus pic?

      • IceKitsune

        Its a picture of Peanut and Grape sitting on a hill watching the sunset in the same pose (Except its only Peanuts arm around Grape) that Grape and Max are in the last panel here.

        • AuvaAkita

          Ah that one, i don’t know if it’s a coincidence or not, but with Rick you never know lol

  39. ReCreate

    The last frame made me lol. XD

    I love how Max goes from “my girlfriend was stabbing me in the back” with his irritated face, to “I have the best girlfriend EVER!” I wish I had a girlfriend who was that cool.

  41. Shaex

    but the rain cools it down so no fire………Right????

  42. Jaxon Night

      Omg your right, Maxs ear bite is gone.

      • Draven

        I stand corrected, further inspection reveals his ear is in fact bitten still.

    • Vladimir Zharkov

      Nah, it’s still there, at some angles it’s hard to see


      And in panels 2 & 4 I would suppose his ears are at too great of an angle to see the front corner. Good observation though. :D

    “That is so HOT”

  48. Peanut

    lol i just laguhed so hard i almost got caught staying up

  49. AuvaAkita

    So Rick, looking back over the arcs i found “All The Kings Men, part 1″ I’ve read it before when i first found Housepets and it was really good. Then i noticed that there was no part 2, and that it’s been a long time since then. So i was just wondering when part 2 was going to come out, or if there even is a part 2 and this was just a one time deal?


    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      there was a contest to finish it and Rick has to finalize things.

      • AuvaAkita

        Oooooh! I never get on the forums, so is it finished yet or…….what?

        • Frank

          “and Rick has to finalize things”, so I’d go with “or what”

          • AuvaAkita

            I assume it’s not finished yet. Well, in any case, i can’t wait for part 2 to come out, i was just curious.

          • Dissension

            That contest is still being judged.

  50. Hoheh

    That’s a great couple moment. I approve of how Max took the reveal.

  51. gaboris

    Hot eh? Heh forgetting to add that it was all cuz of Peanut is just ruse then right? XD

  52. Peanut

    hey rick i doubt it but if u took my advice on the kings secret bein revealed arc plz let him meet peanut grape etc

    • AuvaAkita

      I think that is going to happen, but it might not be for awhile, or it may be sooner than we think. But sooner or later, king is going to have to tell everybody the truth. He simply can’t hide under his dog form for the rest of his life and not forget what happened when he was human. Especially with what happened in the last arc with king and fox, something is Bound to happen.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        King telling everyone about Joel is one alternative.

        There are others.

        Like… King forgetting about Joel. He’s already gone pretty native.

        • AuvaAkita

          Well yeah, there are many, many ways this could unfold, i’m just saying it’s bound to happen sometime. And as far as King being native, idk. Yes he’s gotten used to being a dog, but it’s not like he’s simply gonna forget about his human life (unless the great kitsune erases his memory, which i doubt will happen). I mean, what happens when other dogs ask him about his past, what is he gonna say? He can’t just create more lies, everyone knows those don’t last for long.

    • IceKitsune

      That story line (as well as Fido and Sabrina’s relationship getting out) are almost unavoidable. They will happen eventually unless Rick really, really doesn’t want to do them but I highly doubt that.

      Also King has already met Grape (though he has not yet met Peanut IIRC) in Dog Days of Summer right after hitting on Tarot.

    • Peanut

      now i remeber

  53. Jaxon Night

    one of the last possible posts….i agree with max and his last comment in the strip

    • AuvaAkita
