  1. Dissension

    I’m always in favor of wasting the maximum amount of time possible. :3

    • maxmice

      So am I

    • Tom Flapwell

      Of course, or you wouldn’t be here. ;-)

    • Tommyrazor

      I haven’t met a person yet, who doesn’t like wasting the max amount of time possible.

    • Draven

      Time enjoyed wasting is not wasted time.

  2. Ryufire

    Yes, another New Character please! ^^

    • rtlstien

      Technically he’s not new, but this is his first speaking role.

      He first appeared in:

      http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/05/27/im-never-going-to-understand-humans/

      • kurowolfe

        Yes, this is the first time he spoke, and the fact that he has no name before (if I’m not mistaken) might be the reason why people can’t remember him.

        But yeah, glad that we now know his name! ^w^
        What breed is Terence, if I may ask?

        • Robin Bobcat

          Looks like a Spaniel to me.

          • Caynine

            I think an English Springer Spaniel myself =3

        • Ressy

          Maybe the guy is the new character and the dog is….not?

          • Barker

            So… new guy… any particular reason you were named Police? I understand the Qunari names are equal part role and identification, but I the lack of horns make me question that possible heritage.

          • Ressy

            Lol, I assumed the bubble in the first panel was what police was referring to~ perhaps not….

          • Caynine

            You know… you may be onto something… I can’t tell….. But I hope its the Springer, haha..The last frame makes me think Terrance is the canine.

      • kurowolfe

        Whoops, I mean Terrance =w=

  3. IceKitsune

    Yay! New Character! Also Yay wasting Time!

  4. rtlstien

    I like Terrence already lol

  5. Barker

    Enhance! Actually, knowing how some of the computer generated enhancement is done… makes me cry shenanigans a liiiiiiiiiittle too often for me to watch cop shows with anyone else around. Or investigative sitcom episodes. And sometimes Burn Notice.

    Oh well, at least the C4 isn’t exploding because it was lit on fire.

    • Robin Bobcat
      • Barker

        Given this is text and after the fact… it’s hard to do my reaction justice. But bleeding sonuva **** seriously?! Extrapolating non-existent information from outside the scope of the resolution shouldn’t even be considered as futuristically possible from physical pictures. Uncrop? GAH!!!

        You sir have boggled me. I sit here boggled… maybe even a little bothered or irked. Good show.

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          you are aware that was a comedy, correct? your comment, unless sarcastic, seems to indicate you don’t.

          • Robin Bobcat

            Well, he wasn’t using the special Internet Sarcasm Font….

          • Barker

            Oh, I laughed. I may have headdesked a couple times into hysterics, but I laughed. A satirical joke is generally… provoked by an actual occurrence and the hyperbole to make it funnier, while highlighting the sarcasm, also makes me twitch a little more violently. Speaking of, I need to go change these bandages.

            *cough*therearen’trealbandages
            ididn’tactuallybangmyheadonthedesk*cough*

        • Barker

          Ah…. Now I have an urge to go watch Farscape or Firefly. Probably going with Firefly.

      • rallyjr

        well that was impressive

    • Ember
  6. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    new character yay. I like him.

  7. 1boredcanadian

    I smell CSI parody! *instant rimshot* Please don’t hurt me. No, not the frying pans!

    • Gamerkitty

      Well looks like you just got out of the fire *hits you with a frying pan* and into the frying pan. *puts on shades* YYEEEAAAAAAHHHH

      • rallyjr

        *Gibbs slap you on the back of the head*

        • Molento

          WHOO! NCIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
          “Yes sir.”
          “Don’t call me sir.”
          “Ok ma’am.”

    • Valerio

      I find your lack of faith in CSI…disturbing *hnnss*

  8. Profesor Rod

    “Enhance” creates and draws pixels from the nothingness!

  9. Napu

    and i guess terrance’s theme is england?
    or perhaps Hawaii?

    • rtlstien

      I believe that’s a British breed of dog, so mostly likely he’s British

      • Napu

        Good point but you never know when someone will pull a shocking twist on you

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      He’s an English spaniel, with the stereotype accent, according to his unnamed,Ed cameo in All the King’s Men.

      • Grip the Wolf

        NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA… BAT HOUND!

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          Ace the Bat Hound.

  10. Grip the wolf

    *Sniffs* I smell RAGE!

  11. xhunterko

    And again please.

  12. leaffly

    I am guessing she British as the looks of her collar…

    • leaffly

      I mean he…

    • IceKitsune

      ummm Terrance is a guy as clearly stated by the First panel

      • Z

        And his name too

    • SilverZeo

      Huh… I say… bat-emblem…

  13. SilverZeo

    Must be annoting to have that fluf around his hands… making washing his hands a real drag..

  14. anon_omis

    Ok why are they shaking with their left hands? What are they, boy scouts?

  15. Vladimir Zharkov
  16. Roadrunner

    Is he an English Spaniel with a proper accent?
    In All the king’s men?

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Yeah, same dog just now named.

  17. Elwood Blutarsky

    Someone thinks he’s a Super Trooper.

  18. anon_omis

    Wait even Rick called him a new character even though he KNEW he had already put him in once?!?

    Also, alt txt plz.

    • Nohbody

      The alt text: “We can, however, improve the contrast so *beep boop boop* aaaand we have no new information, so this was a complete waste of time.”

    • Corgiwolf

      Well, he didn’t have a name before. That means he is being /introduced/ for the first time here.

      Alt text: We can, however, improve the contrast so *beep boop boop* aaaand we have no new information, so this was a complete waste of time.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        or we can read the title as meaning that he isn’t another new character.

  19. VOLK
    • gaboris

      Oh boy yes-yes-YES! I didn’t get to see these series, but BOY this clip is huge. XD

      • rallyjr

        “wouldn’t it have bin quicker to look him up in the phone book” yes but that isn’t as fun or impractical as this

  20. Corgiwolf

    I was upset, Windows 7 made me miss all these awesome comics from before to comment on. So so so happy there’s a police arc, I love these K9s!

    Then this came and I was like YES! I love Terrence, that is such a quintessential British name and such a quintessential British attitude. “I don’t care that it isn’t possible or that it’d be easier another way, do it how I said!” X3

    And…from the one before this…what does Pete need with these artifacts anyway…? #crazyrumourstartshere

  21. gaboris

    Oh the all mighty enhancement, we always have a great laugh at these right? :D
    Wish they’d play this joke on the ACTUAL show once. X)

  22. Ember

    New Photoshop algorithms that can unblur, zoom in and focus, see blurry text, etc a lot like those imaginary CSI effects. :3
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxjiQoTp864

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      I don’t believe it. that video was photoshopped.

  23. darkgloomie

    Uuh… enhance, you say?

    Guess I gotta forward some of those spam emails to Terrance, looks like he’d need them.

    • Grip the Wolf

      *Laughs his tail off* I hate spam. My Facebook actually got hacked, and it was being used to send spam to people on my friends list, it ticked them off, and it ticked me off, too. If I ever find the person or persons responsible, I will plant an axe in their skull.

      • rallyjr

        … luck with that

        • Grip the Wolf

          Me: Rally, are you the spammer?
          Rallyjr: No! Whatever would give you that idea?!

  24. Draven

    He knew the truck was in forensics, he just didn’t wanna have to walk there. Laziness FTW

  25. Kyomaru

    maybe you should build a GUI interface with visual basic, see if you can track the thief’s IP address. lolz :D

  26. Argent Stonecutter

    I’d have thought he’d want to smell the mark anyway.

  27. Valerio

    you don’t mess with *this* puppy!

  28. Grip the Wolf

    Cop: Do you want to look at the truck?
    Terrance: No! Zoom and enhance the image!
    Cop: I already told you, the-
    Terrance: ZOOM AND ENHANCE!!
    Cop: But- *facedesk*

    • rallyjr

      *hands an assortment of magnifying glasses* try this

      • Grip the Wolf

        They aren’t working! Why aren’t they working?! The glasses, they do NOTHING!!

        • rallyjr

          i was hoping they would distract you just long enough to…

          • rallyjr

            … get away

  29. Tensa Zangetsu

    Hey that my name! X3 sweet I’m in a comic!

  30. Whitekitsune

    I like his mop arms :3 Seriously though, this arc is getting interesting, I can’t wait to see who the thief is. On another note, your liaison is missing that second i, good sir.

  31. gagi

    Enhance! For the love of god ENHANCE that! Now make that a 3D picture and enhance even more.

    I love CSI

  32. Argent Stonecutter

    The police guy looks a bit like a sheepdog.

  33. Argent Stonecutter

    And those markings look like ancient Akkadian to me.

    • IceKitsune

      I agree they look that way from the panel right now. If we are right that gives more weight to the Cosmic Nerds being involved some how, as they are the only ones we know that a connected with that writing. (that I can remember right now anyway)

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Plus the old guy who talks in limericks lives near the temple with the ancient Akkadian markings.

        • Rick Griffin

          You don’t know that; I could have moved him just because.

          • IceKitsune

            But he was there at one point, which is the point Argent is making. Though right now I doubt he could have done it anyway as I said below.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            He could be bopping around like the Weapon Shops of Isher, but if he is I’m sure you’ll have some explanation for it.

        • IceKitsune

          Ok yes that is very true (I don’t know how I forgot) he is the only other person, but I was speaking more in terms of who could have stolen the stuff. I highly doubt it was him.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Obviously not, he doesn’t look anything like a bat!

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            though he is a bit batty.

        • Frank

          A third party moved the temple! Again!

  34. Misharu

    Wonder where this arc will go, it will be quite interesting.

  35. Harclave

    I keep trying to think of logical explanations, but with each page I just keep thinking “… Pete…”

    • Valerio

      also, “…Bats…”

    • rallyjr

      Pete doesn’t really do subtle

      • Pogiforce

        The way he tricked grape into releasing him? His manipulations to try to make King his avatar? Sneaking into Heaven and taking King’s soul orb? Pete may not do subtle, or at least doesn’t do it all that well considering his success rate, but he does do sneaky, and sneaky is what this is. The fact this includes Brent, I totally expect Pete to be responsible, at the very least one of the celestial creatures.

  36. Matthew

    I believe the breed introduced is nicknamed the ghost dog

  37. Draven

    He looks so FLUFFY! :)

  38. I'll Eat Yourself

    lol that’s funny.

  39. Ozimul

    “…It works on CSI: Miami…”

    • Tara

      That show uses fake technology a lot. :D

      Have you seen their computers?

  40. rallyjr

    ENHANCE!!!!!!!!

  41. Firewolf

    WELL OKAY THEN! >=U

  42. Pogiforce

    Terrance must watch CSI.

  43. icarus

    now all we need is an exuberant young rookie irish boxer on the force named clancy and we’re set.

    even though boxers aren’t irish.
    so nice to see new dog breeds, said the huge dog nerd.

  44. Elfe

    I wonder how many more Dogs are on the K-9 Unit.

    For one, There is another unnamed dog behind Terrence in his first appearance… and maybe some others?

    • Elfe

      Oops, Terrance, not Terrence.

  45. Elwood Blutarsky

    Wait, is that a fingerprint?…or his only paw print?

  46. Tara

    I wonder what his tag is supposed to look like.

    A red fluffy thing?

  47. Draven

    The circle thing kinda looks like a stain from where someone left a cold drink too long.

  48. AuvaAkita

    I like Terrance, he’s funny :p

  49. Argent Stonecutter

    Does Terrance know Duchess?

    http://www.housepetscomic.com/tag/duchess/

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      they may live together. they do both have English accents.

  50. Pokelova

    *whines* I miss King.

    • AuvaAkita

      Same here, but you have to give the other characters a chance to tell their stories too. It wouldn’t be fair.

  51. Senorpie7

    I like this new character. Technically, he is not “new”, simply brought back from a sinister shadow. Still, I like my back round characters to have a little depth =)
