Where I wanna be is with King!
Dedication FTW considering the fact that your icon is today’s King’s face.
I like to grab my King avatar early, I will keep it unless I can find a nicer one later.
I totally agree!
Amen to that
Umm, I was supposed to have an avatar…
oh, there it is!
I can tell this’ll be great!
I find this interesting and want to know where it goes! Does anyone else sort of get a “Down at the farm” arc vibe building here???
I’m more interested in the fact that it’s a Fox and King arc. Specifically one that doesn’t stem from Pete or Bino. Also, ROAD TRIP!
I got that vibe, but with WAY more kids. XD
Yeah for King!
I know how he feels… I would be one of the people trying to pet him (children aren’t the only ones who are allowed to!)
pet him, hug him, squeeze him, nom his ears…
That li’l guy SCREAMS cuteness. Who knows…perhaps this time we’ll see if Fox was right about his buddy being a real ladykiller…
Ack, large, Midwestern families. *giggles*
Luckily, mine isn’t large. Then again, I’m not sure Arkansas is considered ‘Midwestern’ by most people.
Also, I like that Fox reads while walking and, apparently, conversing.
I believe fox is the only male talented enough to do that, and don’t think I am being sexist, I AM a guy. I have tried that and it is hard! I can’t even study and listen to music
Really? I practically can’t study without music. Without music I easily get bored an my mind starts to wander into the realms of my fantasy.
Took me days to find my way out once.
ditto here, i usually use the earphones that completly block out sound…which is also why i didn’t hear my alarm stating that the comic had been updated(rough estimate of time)
Yeah, surprisingly that might be the reason why. When I listen to music and study, I read the pages yet I only listen to the music. Then after a few paragraphs I realize I have been reading without comprehending… Lol
That happens to me weather or not I listen to music, music just give it structure though.
Music I’d my only sane factor… And this comic, and the people on it.
Peanut might give him a run for his money.
And I… uh… can’t study without background music of some kind. >_>; It means I test horribly since I can’t listen to anything, but music just helps me focus and allows me to burn through my workload really easily.
I have to argue that Peanut probably could!
But Peanut can finish reading BEFORE he even walks!
Actually, he’s looking away from the book in panel 1. While this is an admirable talent (one that happens to escape me Q.Q), and one that Fox and/or Peanut would likely be capable of, Fox doesn’t seem to be demonstrating it here. He’s looking slightly to the side of the book. Easy mistake, though ^.^
Yes, I realize it’s not depicted on-frame, but they were presumably walking and talking before we saw them, so I daresay Fox was doing all three. Otherwise, why walk with an open book? x3
or, they could be sitting on a bench?
Well, Fox usually walks. I am certain they at walking right now!
Ieah, I tried to walk and play my GBA at the same time…..I decided it was a bad idea after running face first into a mailbox.
I wonder what Dickens novel Fox is reading.
I want to say A Christmas Carol, if only because it can be a set up for a Christmas Arc.
The turkey dinner also fits it nicely
I WAS THE TURKEY ALL ALONG!
Hmm.. I was wondering what that turkey was doing there.
Love invader zim!
Its title is Dickens and it’s actually by Aaron Borges.
I find it fairly easy, though it usually means my heart is not in the conversation.
I have no problems at all walking while reading. I have developed my own radar sense for obstacles
I can, I enjoy multitasking in my reading and on my iPad.
Well, King again! wow
extended midwestern family? sound like my mom’s side of the family.
I never noticed that King has stumpy little Corgi arms! D’awwww
Ooooh I sooooo want a King stuffed toy!!! @_@
Rick, that would be a total soldout!
I think plushies of ANY of the HP! characters would sell fast. except maybe Pete. or the limerick guy.
nah, even Pete would sell.
The nefarious villains wouldn’t sail
Better hope it’s not like what happened to Peanut and Grape when they visited their relatives.
I picture the children being…miraculously similar.o_o
Whoa, King and Fox arc, that’s actually pretty unexpected this time around.
After King’s last adventures it’ll be interesting to see him in what appears to be a fully comedic arc. He could use a breather.
Right, we can move on from spiritual tortures to physical.
“When in doubt, hurt the corgi.” — adapted from the “Aladdin” TV show “bible” where it was “When in doubt, hurt the bird”. The bird, of course, being Iago.
And yet, that expectation would make this the perfect arc for King’s secret to be revealed!
Doubt it, who’d actually believe him?
who would want to believe him? cause i am fairly certain Fox wouldn’t want to believe his best friend is his worst enemy
Bino? Fox doesn’t actually have much of a rogue’s gallery, Fatty was more evil and he’s rotting in jail.
What, the confused and easily led one who kept disagreeing with the kidnapper?
Oh yeah, classic king fml face palm at last panel!!!
Poor King can’t seem to catch a break can he?
Fox’s still his best buddy, that suffices.
YAY, KING AND FOX HANG OUT BACK TOGETHER
Sorry for the caps, but I really needed to see this. yay!
My heart goes to you, King.
We salute you King!
Oh yes. Holidays with kids. *shudder*
Now, I also hope this, being a ‘country vacation’ arc, won’t end up in tears as well…
Oh, there’s no place like someones home for the holidays
Maybe Fox’s cousin will return and be named.
And she did in the next strip!!!
Never a dull moment for King I see.
Panel 1: King looks exactly like Ralph when he did his ‘bad bat imitation’ number
Panel 3: Fox looks just like Peanut while he was going ‘Pew Pew’ during his…stay at keene’s
Also: King gets to go to country and not Bino, yadda yadda!
Yep, Fox prefers King over Bino. I so wonder why… -_-
Oh no…..I smell hundreds of avatar choices coming.
I…smell it too’s!
Seriously there should be an online application for creating these avis of yours… hmmm… I think I got my first project after I make my own thing going. :p
I don’t smell a thing
I didn’t know King was a poet! Depressing, yet inspring. Bravo!
… I’m hungry now. -_-’
Can i interest you in some turkey, potatoes, and cornbread? :3
Thanksgiving is coming. ^_^
aaand, of course, since Rick teased us with the awesome cozyness image in panel 3, that will be the only thing we will NOT see…
He tweeted that it was going to be fox and king last night. So maybe he’s not a total tease.
What did it mean?
Link to tweet plz?
King ya poor thing you are never left to rest like if SOME force of the universe would keep dragging you down for the sheer entertainment of a bunch of other lesser forces.
We can guess who… It’s a certain fox
Why would you or Sleet have anything to do with this?
Don’t be silly! It could be you too!
But I meant GK
I don’t get the “real bucket seat” bit.
here it goes!
Two dogs riding on the back of one motorcycle seems like a recipe for trouble.
only if the corgi gets sick
This should be quite the interesting arc for sure. Can’t wait! King in panel 3 is adorable I love the look on his face.
This reminds me of the beginning of “Dog Days of Summer”, the first two strips compressed into one.
Hurrah for new Fox and King! #housepetscomic
I feel your pain, King. Not the bit about being turned into a dog (unfortunately), but the bit about tranquility always escaping whenever I think I find it. Keep up the great work, Rick. I’m glad you’re feeling better, too.
yays more Fox & King
Taking on bets! What’s going to happen to King at the end of this arc? The being that returns his destiny back to heaven shows up and the Corgi has to make the way back to give it to him? Will he return back to the wolves more exhausted when he left?
Nothing, I’m betting this is a purely physical arc with no magic at all.
No plot twists even?
No mystical ones.
I am with your bet, besides King needs a break to forget about his fate for a while.
I can see an off chance of maybe one of the Kids figuring out his secret some how. Or him telling one of them of some reason, but even I consider that unlikely; possible but unlikely.
That last panel made me lol
Something tells me this will be a fun arc.
By “children” does he mean puppies or human boys and girls? And does King know which one?
If puppies, we’ll probably see a lot of “Hey, mister! Whatcha doin’, mister? How come you’re so short, mister?” etc.
If human, we’ll probably see how fast King can run http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/07/01/do-those-still-exist/
YAY EYE FLOATERS! wait, I hate them, they ruin the view of the sky. but yay that joke XD
King, run while you still can! I don’t want you to die!
Double facepaw. I feel sorry for King XD
I don’t, hey free meal right?
I don’t think he pays for them at all though…
i think irony has few more points
She’s been spending them
YAY, KING IS BACK!
By the way, glad your feeling better Rick! ^_^
UGH! ai HATE eye floaters! DX
I have one myself. It’s provided me hours of amusement. ^.^ Yeah, I get bored easily. XD
Dating this comment right now: OMG IRATU
As for me, I don’t mind them much. They don’t happen very often nowadays.
Poor King. ^^; Well, at least it should be a bit better than spending it with wolves…right?
Dohoho. I like where this is going.
Dohoho. Me too.
YAY KING IS BACK
Awesomesauce! King and Fox are back!
lollll XD Every kid ALWAYS chases the Corgis! =D
panel two king look like he has a cross instead of his chess piece
hmm wherever he goes children have to be… must be a curse…
Man King…..look at what u got urself into now!!!!!
*french accent*Quickly to ze meme generator! If thats ok with you rick.
King and Fox!!! happy to see them
And that my good King is check and mate by your good fate.
Oh gosh that was too funny!! And it’s nice to see King again! I missed him!
Kids might be more pleasant for him if he wasn’t adorable. King is in for cuddling, attention, and severely limited peace. A lot of it.
Wouldn’t it be nice if King got in to a love story?
It would be, but it would also be kind of weird since he used to be a man. He seems to have embraced being a dog though
That’s the point of it. The complications make it more interesting.
Ah, King ALWAYS gets something with a catch!
(BTW, when did he become a poet?)
I’m getting a feeling that this will be kind of like when Peanut and Grape went to their uncle’s
I love that Fox is reading Dickens. XD
Ah, midwestern families during Thankgiving, fun times…
Difference for me being that I’m one of the youngest (fifth from I think) and being sixteen half my cousins are off to college. Also, my family isn’t THAT large, only about two dozen… assuming most of my cousins in college come for the holidays.
Anyway, if for King it’s gonna be anything like my Thanksgivings usually are, I hope King likes turkey, billiards, and Austin Powers.
I think the “but” before “bad” shouldn’t be there.
I don’t comment often do to the tirade that’s usually there by the time I get home to check the update, but I couldn’t help this one.
Still love the comic, especially the characters’ development!
Way too late.
what ever happend tothe ferets
One of them was featured within the last four arcs. :3
