    Mr butt lol’z

    • Cwain

      How are you always first?

      • Tynach

        Maybe he has a time machine, or perhaps he has an auto-refresher on his browser that alerts him to changes?

      • McFly

        He’s just really good at timing.

        • Jinxed

          Or perhaps he has a DeLorean with a flux capacitor, or maybe even a TARDIS!

          • Khanaar

            or BOTH.

          • The Bronze Gryphon

            Or a TARDIS with a Flux Capacitor…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Or you can try initiating a scalar wave entanglement in a transwarp conduit at warp factor 9 or higher.

        • Cystern

          I prefer my vortex manipulator. It’s good buts it’s cheap and nasty time travel, trying to give it up.

  2. Dissension

    And thus King was forever known as Mr. Butt.

    The End.

    • rallyjr

      Mr.butt… oh so many jokes so little time

    • Fox

      King Butt.

      That just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?

    • Napu

      Great first impression king. Bravo.
      I hope the entire arc won’t be about king and bailey just because it’s ’story driven’

    • Tom Flapwell

      Always the butt of a joke.

    • Jinxed

      /completely unrelated to HP
      Where is your avatar from?

      • MKarrow

        Rick made it for him. The full badge is on Deviantart.

    • silverfang16

      The potential may be limitless!

  3. IceKitsune

    I think King has a bit of a crush :P

    • Ryufire

      I think I hear Haddaway’s song playing :D

      • CannonFodder

        *gets in car with two other friends*
        *puts song on Ipod*
        *begins headbanging*

        • Nick (from HP!R)

          It’s all fun and games until one of you breaks a window with your headbanging.

    • DanteCaughtFire

      Considering he was human, and is probably still in a human mindset, this could be a problem for him.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I don’t think he’s been in a human mindset for a while… remember him putting the moves on Sasha and Tarot? And “son of a charming young woman”? He’s gone native.

        • DanteCaughtFire

          Well, he was drunk at the time, so I think this time it’s going to be harder for him to deal with, but in a hilarious way of course.

          • silverfang16

            You’re right…we need to get him drunk again!

          • rtlstien

            Bring out the Orange Soda!

        • Elwood Blutarsky

          From what we saw of his thoughts he does think of himself as King now…doesn’t make this any less akward though.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I think King should be completely at home to “awkward” by now. He’s had SO much practice!

          • DanteCaughtFire

            Yeah, I guess. But he does have his moments, like when he began shaving his face…

    • tanglestalker909

      I smell inevitable heartbreak and embarrassment

      • anon_omis

        For the latter, is this not a web comic?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        The inevitable embarrassment has already started.

      • The_Rippy_One

        I forsee a return of the Barn Cat gag…but with dogs

    • King'sLore

      Cool! King’s finally getting in to a love story.

    • Teiresiascat

      I’m not the only one who thinks kings new crush looks awfully like grape right?

  4. Exulen

    I think fox forgot to mention flat, especially when you’re driving across is on i70

  5. Daggy

    He looks so disparaged!

    That third panel looks great. Really good usage of hearts. x3

    • AuvaAkita

      Hearts is always what you see when it’s love at first sight!

  6. AuvaAkita

    Oh my, i do believe King is Love-struck! XD

  7. Ferousoxide

    Me Gusta

    • Ramer

      … a mi también =3

    • Dragongal

      Much Me Gusta.

    • Valerio

      mi piace!

    • The_Rippy_One

      My gods…the gusta…It’s off the charts!
      :)
      Personally, I’ll have to see what her personality is like before gusta gusta’ing ;) .

  8. Snowmon

    um……………………………………………………………

    • Snowmon

      Take your pick of A-D to finish this sentence:
      Okay, ______ how much more awkward can this get?

      a) she’s his “best friend’s” cousin so…
      b) she looks just like fox, so…
      c) she’s a dog so…
      d) All the above…

      (@_@) Seriously, didn’t see this coming…

      • rallyjr

        i choose D&E for all the about and all that hasn’t bin mentioned

        • rallyjr

          above*

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        D. but C could be less awkward if Pete messed with his brain chemistry.
        A is only awkward if Fox feels weird about it.
        B is probably the most awkward.

      • Tensa Zangetsu

        I pick D!

      • Ada

        I’ll take ‘At least it couldn’t get worse’ for $1,000, Alex.

        • BlueAnubis

          Those words are tempting all kinds of fate that I don’t even want to touch with a 59 1/2 foot pole.

        • Cole

          Remember Peanut and the barn cats!

      • Argent Stonecutter
        • The_Rippy_One

          Venkmann has a point, here…

      • silverfang16

        I was thinking that too, he would be RELATED to fox. 0_0

      • RegularBird

        Both

      • The_Rippy_One

        You forgot “E: She already has a mate, so…”
        That would seriously muck with him. Possibly followed by
        “F: The relationship, per the standard for the animals, is fairly open, so…” which adds to the awkward fun for King, which will then bring awkwardness to everyone else as they try to understand King’s position.

    • Pokeblue

      “D” for sure.

      B is hands down the most awkward, I mean if it wasn’t stated, I probably would’ve assumed she was Fox’s sister.

  9. Bluh

    And thus, a new ship was born.

    • Barker

      And thus, Rick proved he knows EXACTLY how to generate a lot of comments. Yeesh.

  10. rallyjr

    let me see, do i want this……the tension, the aquard moments, all the silly things king will probably do…. yes i want this

  11. Elwood Blutarsky

    Called it!…well hinted at it in a questioning manner but still I thought she might show up.

  12. The J.A.M.

    I take it from the ALT text that Bailey is in….estrus?

    • The J.A.M.

      Sorry, the title, not the ALT text.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Not likely in this comic, King’s just feeling weird.

      • anon_omis

        Though that does raise an interesting question. What did Mr. Griffin mean by that?

        Also, alt txt plz.

        • AuvaAkita

          ALT text = “You guys wanted this, right?”

        • Ozuan

          Mmm, I’d guess something to do with the third panel.

    • Rick Griffin

      No, that is a very rude reference to a butt

  13. hirple

    …paging Dr. Freud :P

    • anon_omis

      She isn’t his mother

      • hirple

        But she is a dog (not to mention that she’s nearly a palette-swap of his best friend). The good doctor could’ve probably written a book or two on this lol

        • anon_omis

          Point.

        • spiritwolf15

          I think he may have already…

          • Nick (from HP!R)

            And Fox could have very well already read it. Him, or Peanut.
            …paging Dr. Sandwich

    • xhunterko

      …Dr. Who?
      *ducks*

      • hirple

        Great, now I want to photoshop Dr. Freud into the TARDIS…

        • The_Rippy_One

          Didn’t they have that episode already? Like…the 3rd doctor, maybe?

  14. leaffly

    Now THIS is a story I can read to for sure :D
    I am pretty sure I wanted this :D

  15. Agent Sandwich

    Trying to imagine her accent…..

    • anon_omis

      I’d go with Dorothy Gale from the Wizard of Oz

      • Hopper200456

        …… Now, during this WHOLE arc, I’ll be thinking of Wizard of Oz.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Pay no attention to the dog behind the curtain.

          • The_Rippy_One

            And King will spend the entire trip trying to get enough courage.

  16. MKarrow

    ‘Rosey Gasses’…. the reason King doesn’t want her to sniff his butt? :P

  17. Johnsmith

    Wait… I’m kinda lost. What’s going on here?

    • Indagare

      For some reason, King finds Bailey attractive to the point of having a crush on her. This is very awkward since King used to be human. Whether or not he’ll be human again is a different question, but for right now it’s all sorts of awkward.

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        Not to mention she’s his best friend’s cousin who lives in another state.

        • Arkanum

          and looks just like his best friend

  18. jarrel

    And thus things get interesting. I was wondering when King would finally get paired with someone.

  19. SleepySandMan

    Let the shipping begin!
    Also, so we finally get a name for Fox’s cousin!

    • anon_omis

      Have refrences been made to her in the past?

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        She appears in one panel in the first Christmas comic.

        • anon_omis

          Really? She isn’t tagged in any others

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            because, like Terrance in the last arc, she didn’t have a name before. she was just “Fox’s cousin”

          • Argent Stonecutter

            More tag updating for Rick!

  20. LupisLight

    Oh, Bailey’s a cutie all right. At first impression she reminds me of Sasha. As for her and King? I dunno. King is a human inside, regardless of what body he’s in. I’m all for romance, and I’m certainly interested to see how things turn out here, but it seems a little…I don’t know….forced? Contrived? for him to have such a strong ‘lovestruck’ reaction at first sight of her; Unless I’ve forgotten something, the last time he was seen actively hitting on canines he was completely drunk…

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent
    • Hera Ledro

      I’m not sure about forced or contrived. I think we’d have to wait and let the arc pan out a bit first before we can definitively read it as that, since the only thing that’s happened so far is that King finds her to be cute. The hearts don’t necessarily mean love, just attraction.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      King’s already gone to the doggy side, remember the Orange Soda incident?

    • LupisLight

      The orange soda thing? Like I said, he was totally drunk at the time. I’ll concede the other points though, and I apologize for the earlier criticism. It wouldn’t do to draw such conclusions based on a single strip. I myself said Bailey is cute, so I’m really in no position to call King out on it. There could indeed be plenty of explanations for King being attracted to a dog if one wanted to look deeper into it. Doesn’t make this any less awkward for the poor guy in any way, though. Can’t wait to see how things work out for him!

  21. 2MK

    cue dreamweaver song

    • anon_omis

      Or under cover angle, or now I’m a believer, or into something good, or my eyes adored you, or *rambles off a list of classic songs about love at first sight*

  22. anon_omis

    I don’t see why King would get attracted to a dig. He WAS human. Also can someone explain the joke at the end

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      Well Pete did change him into a dog and made it so he can’t say his real name, maybe his brain chemistry was altered to make him more dog-like.

      • anon_omis

        That, or the fact that hes been one for over a year and is either a) getting used to it b) he’s accepted that he won’t ever change back or c) he no linger wants to change back

        • FreakazoidVocaloid

          So far, it’s been looking like he’s slowly becoming more comfortable with being a dog, as well as come to terms with the fact that he’s stuck like that. As of Bailey’s appearance, however…

          • Elwood Blutarsky

            She’s just friendly, even met a well-cared for dog that wasn’t?

          • anon_omis

            Yes. Small breed dogs have ALOT of attitude

      • LupisLight

        Good point. Physical transformation is one thing, but we don’t know how or if Joel was transformed mentally as well.

  23. xhunterko

    You guys did ask for it.

  24. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    I predict King will go to kiss her in the dark at one point, and it will actually be Fox. an awkward moment will ensue.

    I’m saying this now so that it almost definitely won’t happen.

    • jinxed

      -ahem+ It’s my job to predict things so they definitely won’t happen
      .

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        sorry. I wanted to get it in done early.

        • Jinxed

          Come on, the next strip won’t be out till Friday D:

    • Tensa Zangetsu

      … I could imagine this… But I should stop cause that would have a very bad ending in it for king….

  25. Whiskers

    King has such a “Should not want 8[” face in the last panel.

  26. anon_omis

    Doesn’t she look a bit like the dog version of Peanut in the third panel?

    • Rick Griffin

      Peanut is the dog version of Peanut

      • anon_omis

        When I asked you you to remove the comment, I meant that one

        • AuvaAkita

          This one is more funny though! :p

  27. Sonic Fox

    LoL, would have thought he would make an exception for her.

  28. Setsune

    OK… asking the question… where is it actually stated Bailey is female? Is it because of the chest ruff?

    • Rick Griffin

      The eyelashes of course

      • Setsune

        The trouble someone could get up to with a box of false eyelashes…

        • Salenstormwing

          it would make nights at the Bigglesworth easier to sort through… probably.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Paging Bugs Bunny!

        • The_Rippy_One

          That sounds like the perfect basis for several very wrong shipping stories.

      • Tom Flapwell

        I actually looked for the eyelashes and didn’t see them at first. Right, you draw them on the sides of the eyes, not on top.

  29. Kilroywuzheere

    As someone native to Kansas I must object to the idea that we have nothing but corn wheat and cows.

    CORN is from NEBRASKA! Gog!

    Also we have barns and tractors too!

    • anon_omis

      An twisters

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        And the University of Kansas Jayhawks

    • AuvaAkita

      As someone who has driven through Kansas, i can tell you there is NOTHING!! XD
      But i’m also from Missouri, so i’m supposed to despise Kansas anyway lol

    • Argent Stonecutter

      All them flat square states in the middle have corn. Like, you know…

      Oooooooklahoma!
      Where the corn is as high as an elephant’s eye…

    • Draven

      And the ” Children of the Corn”

      • Draven

        Wait, that’s Nebraska.

  30. Roadrunner

    WOW……………………………….

  31. anon_omis

    Ok I’ll say it again. >.< doesn't she look like the dog version of GRAPE?!?! *glares at admin*

    • anon_omis

      In the third panel

      • AuvaAkita

        She’s Grape’s long lost sister!!

        • Hopper200456

          Wait….

    • Whiskers

      might just be because she looks purple in that hearty panel

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Yeh, I think that’s it.

        Everyone looks like Grape through rose-colored glasses.

    • Dissension

      *smirk-giggles*

      Those admins will get you every time!

      • Tommyrazor

        Twould seem that it’s what they do best.

    • Pecan Crisp

      Next comic introduces her best friend, Wheat the brown tabby cat.

  32. John Willow

    I like the past referrence in panel 4 but I find the sudden colour change in panel three a bit weird

  33. Ada

    It’s d’aww. It’s pretty hard to argue with d’aww.

    • Valerio

      totally this!

    • The_Rippy_One

      Amen!

  34. valerio

    1) Bailey ROCKS
    2) this is SO goung to get interesting :D

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Little soon to tell, other than rib out of town dogs and live on what we think is a farm what does she do?

  35. slash0mega

    please visit topeka, kansas city, or anything else that qualifies as urban in kansas before you continue this story arc,

    you WILL find a distinct lack of corn and cows

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      but Fox has only seen this part of Kansas and this is the only part the arc takes place in.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      But in the HP! universe it might be different.

      Now I’m imagining Topeka populated with cows, like some huge Gary Larson strip.

    • Rick Griffin

      *ahem* I used to live in Kansas when I was a kid and still visit there sometimes. I am perfectly aware there are many things other than very flat land.

      But you know what? I LIKE Kansas. I LIKE that, in most of it, you have to look rather hard for things that are not flat land or cows.

  36. David

    I totally wanted this…haha

    • Valerio

      we’re surely off for a great start :D

      • anon_omis

        Don’t call me sheerly

        • Kilo Key

          Can I call you Terry instead?

          • The_Rippy_One

            No Boggart’ing! ;p

  37. Hopper200456

    A billion idea just popped into my poor head.

    • Valerio

      and all of them are funny and pleasant

      • Hopper200456

        I’d say that most of them went to shipping, but I think that happened to all of us.

  38. Shiranai

    Yo dawg I heard you like dawgs so we put a dawg in a dawg so you can dawg with your dawg.
    Dawg.

  39. CalaverX11

    Who asked for what? I’m confused.

  40. Valerio

    don’t sniff her butt, stupid! KISS DA LADY!

  41. Shake

    For a brief moment, I thought that was grape in the third panel.

    • Valerio

      If grape went like that for Peanut, I’d be in heaven

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        But where would that leave Maxwell and Tarot.

        • IceKitsune

          Well Tarot already said that she would leave if Grape developed feelings for Peanut so she less of a problem then Max.

        • Draven

          Together?

  42. Rayne

    I never asked for this

    • anon_omis

      Don’t be rude. Just smile and say thank you for the wonderful gift

      • AuvaAkita

        This was one of my first mistakes as a child. I got something i didn’t like for Christmas, and so i boldly went up to the person who got it for me and told them i didn’t like it X3

    • Volkenstein

      What a shame…(someone had to)

  43. Leafolawl

    I didn’t ask for this, but I do fully support the idea this has put in my head.

  44. Napu

    Oooh yeah! Way to choose em’ !

  45. GDA

    May I just interject to say that she’s right? King IS adorable. :3

  46. Tech

    okay seeing as he was human and thinks like a human wouldn’t him falling for a “dog” be a form of beasteality or zoofilia?

    • Indagare

      Hence his look in the last panel. The fact that he’s finding himself somehow attracted to her is probably causing this sort of argument in his head.

      Of course, it shows my own spin in that I thought Bailey was a guy dog…

    • zeroslash

      Because he’s been a dog for quite some time now, it’s likely his attraction toward humans has been replaced with his current species. Also, remember he flirted with dogs before at the Dog Days of Summer party.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I think his dogginess is more than skin deep by now. Remember how he behaved under the influence of orange soda?

      • Valerio

        so epic!
        Also, he doesn’t want to be alone.
        The doggy side is strong in this one…

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        Probably a safe bet, note how quick he was to look for a tree back at the amusement park. But that’s some of the humor with him, King’s only there to be funny.

    • VOLK

      In a previous arc it was suggested that King had to choose wether or not he’d come to terms with his dog-ness… that he hasn’t yet would probably be what creates the conflict.

  47. aBEARthatsApet

    Go mister butt!

  48. Indagare

    Sure, it could be, but Rick stated already that Bailey’s a girl.

    As for direction, I foresee a comedy wherein poor King must now deal with these emotions along with a multitude of human children.

    • AuvaAkita

      *predicts the future* Mass hysteria is imminent!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        “The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!”

        Two out of four!

        • Kilo Key

          You get a cookie for that, sir

          • Tommyrazor

            I am in agreement! You do get a cookie for that :D ( I don’t care who takes the cookie, as long as I don’t get tempted with om noming it )

  49. Vash The Stampede

    really like this 1 (:

  50. GameCobra

    Abd then King wanted to come here for Thanksgiving every year. XD

  51. kingisawsome

    I have taken the time and have discovered that it is possible that Fox’s canine father/mother had an identical twin who, when he/she had puppies one of them was Bailey.

  52. Whitekitsune

    Sure is a lot of complaining about King/Bailey/Kansas around here. Can’t we all just sit back, crack open some orange sodas, and enjoy the comic? On another note, this arc is definitely going to be a lot of fun, and I’m always happy for King and Fox to get more screentime. Bailey is pretty friendly, and I like that she has a handkerchief that matches Fox’s. I wonder if there’ll be any other new pets around. Definitely looking forward to the rest of this arc, Mr. Griffin

    • Valerio

      and so do we!
      The fun is on, gentlemen!

  53. Nick (from HP!R)

    Some of you know what I wanted, but this is good enough, I’m anxiously awaiting the next strip.
    Also, hooray for Fox and King!
    that is all
    #housepetscomic

    • Valerio

      *confetti*

      • Nick (from HP!R)

        Alright! Who let the Unggoy (Grunts) into the comments?

        • Volkenstein

          my bad

  54. Dragongal

    I love the colors used for Bailey. I love blues. Or Arctic colors……….

    • Dragongal

      I feel weird saying that.

      • Valerio

        why? She’s adorable!

  55. kimo

    absolutely adorable! i love it!

  56. Grip the Wolf

    We aren’t in Kansas anymore…. oh, wait, we just got to Kansas.
    Now that I have made that lame joke, I would like to say that when I first saw the comic (but before I started to read it), I thought that the dog in the third panel was Fox. And now, I shall include a made up conversation that builds upon this strip. Please do not mistake the following for Housepets! canon:

    Bailey: Do you have a nickname? “Please Don’t Sniff My Butt” sounds kind of tedious.
    King: My name is King. I was requesting that you didn’t sniff my butt.
    Fox: *whispering to Bailey* You did that just to mess with him didn’t you?
    Bailey: *whispering to Fox* What do YOU think? The last time I had this much fun was when I pushed Little Timmy into the well!
    Fox: *whispering* I think I’ll just pretend I didn’t hear that

    • Argent Stonecutter

      +1

    • rallyjr

      whats that, Little Timmy is stuck in the well, he should know better by now

      • silverfang16

        Thank you, why do I keep hearing that he fell into the well again? >_>’

  57. stfuhoorah

    Looks like Grape in dog form, kinda.

  58. SilverZeo

    So even when you’re a gorwn man who worked for PETA who was then turned into a a dog by a cosmic griffin in a universal game of D&D and is leaving a pack of wolves…. High School STILL never ends?
    (Oh Oh, Oh Oh Oh-Oh, Oh Oh Oh-Oh, Oh Oh Oh-Oh)

  59. Valerio

    I can imagine Bino rolling and laughing hysterically at the fourth panel

  60. Tom Flapwell

    My first thought was that Bailey was attracted to King and not vice versa. Could be mutual. Hard to tell.

    • AuvaAkita

      Right now, i don’t think Bailey is attracted to King, she just said he was cute which doesn’t warrant anything. And for all we know Bailey might already have a boyfriend, which could break his heart.

      Oh boy, now you got my head churning out many possible outcomes for this arc!

      • Volkenstein

        Heart Break, search your feelings you know it to be true!

  61. Misharu

    Why do I foresee King having to endure the nickname ‘Mr. Butt’ from all the other members of the family?

  62. microbuss

    ah you should of made the location Nebraska But close to me anyway hehe

    • microbuss

      Also that descibes Nebraska too lol But we has sugar beets too & TONS of coal trains running thru as well XD

  63. ranzey

    cmon man, dont make a butt of yourself

    this can only end badly

  64. Devin Parker

    Sleep outside in Kansas in November? That sounds like a poor idea to me, dog or not.

    Might serve the same purpose as a cold shower for King, though.

  65. Ben

    cue Gary Wright Dream Weaver on panel 3

    • BaconGrease

      Oooh DREAM weaver, I believe we can make it through the night… I didn’t think that, but it sure does fit.

  66. Foxstar

    Going to say this once, people, cut out the Fox x King stuff in the comments. First and only warning.

    • valerio

      are we entitled to root for king and bailey now?

      • Foxstar

        Fourm rules still apply here too.

        • valerio

          got it. But bailey’s a girl. And, unless it’s stated that king will return human no matter what, a love story could still have room in his future, right?

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          the forum rules being that shipping discussion is not allowed outside of the discussion of a comic that lends itself to shipping discussion, like this one.
          so Bailey and King discussion is still good.

  67. AuraTwilight

    You know, Bailey’s resemblance to King makes this REALLY awkward.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I’m sure they don’t look that similar to doggy eyes. Or is it not just humans who have problems with species?

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      Bailey looks nothing like King.
      (you mean resemblance to Fox, right?)

  68. 1boredcanadian

    Now King knows how Peanut felt in farm country.

  69. Elwood Blutarsky

    And now that “Ladykiller” line Fox said a year ago comes into play…

    • valerio

      the most embarrassing thing would be fox conspiring to help king score

      • silverfang16

        With his cousin.

        • Firewolf

          Lol, now I AM interested XD

  70. fox-keiser

    please tell me that its a girl dog, i’m serious, PLEASE tell me its a girl

    • Foxstar

      Rick already said Bailey’s a girl.

    • McFly

      Is it not obvious?

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      you gotta look at the eyelashes man.

  71. Draven

    Oh, to be young, and to feel loves keen sting.

  72. vv45689

    Did Fox drive them there? Also SHE’S ADORABLE.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      They rode on the back of Fox’s owner’s bike.

      • VinnyTheGuy

        Okay that solves that mystery.

  73. FerreTrip

    Do I sense another Sasha (but hopefully less ditzy), or just someone being snarky in the last panel?

    Regardless, this seems to be getting interesting. Poor King. X3;

  74. Z24

    I was thinking King would say more of a “Please don’t kill me”

  75. Shady Kitsune

    Confound these animals, can’t always tell at first look if they are a he or a she.
    Though I do see some girly eyelashes.

  76. Nia

    Well this can go two ways, either King gets to actually kiss this girl, or it’ll end up with some embarrassing way with King getting a black eye. Taking all bets ladies and germans!

    • Volkenstein

      1,000 Bison Dollars on black eye please

    • Jakkal

      Gut, dann sag ich, dass er damit Erfolg hat und am ende eine schöne schnulzige Verabschiedung haben wird, wo min. die Hälfte “aaaawwwwwwww” sagen werden!

  77. Matthew

    Breaking news:
    Housepets is breaking on the new king and fox story and it seems king has developed a new love interest! More as the story continues!

  78. silverfang16

    It…it’s a female Fox….o_o

    • Firewolf

      And What a vixen she is X3

  79. chazmeister242

    OMG FINALYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  80. rederci939

    :3
    that’s all there is to say about this…

  81. upcomingartist

    wait… do dogs shake with their left hands? :p just kidding i could care less. Good to see King back again though, it’s been a while.

  82. Profesor Rod

    This… this is like getting lovestruck with the female version of your friend, the one you happen to have a small crush on. Weird? VERY MUCH!

  83. LoneWolf

    Native Kansan here. We are watching…

  84. Rererak

    Ah, I’ve always wanted something nice to happen to King, I hope this is it. I swear, Pete, if you ruin this I will throw the wrath of grape or something on you.

    • Rererak

      *cough* grapes of wrath. Did not mean to do that.

      • Darastrixen

        Intentional or not, that’s pretty funny.

  85. Onemanarmy11

    WIN. xD

  86. Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

    DON’T DO IT KING. DON’T DO IT.

  87. John

    Aw. Is about time King got himself a girlfriend

  88. John

    Aw. It’s about time King got himself a girlfriend.

  89. One-Who-Howls

    In Clan We Say “Na Ne Hide.” No Sniff My Tail. XD

  90. Elwood Blutarsky

    Meanwhile Bino is offscreen enjoying time with Sasha knowing the fans are finally going to back off on her being with King.

  91. Wanderer

    No predictions yet, I’m going to wait longer.
    This is going to get good!

  92. Zzz

    I think King’s surprise in panel four is due not to him being attracted to a dog and it conflicting with his human self, but rather it hit him that he has really lost his human self. I mean, its a little jarring when you discover a major facet of your being is just gone one day. Here he was easing into dog life and then BAM ‘I was once human.’

  93. Volkenstein

    This will end in so many tears, mark my words.

    • Firewolf

      Lol, for me, it’s cheers XD

      • Volkenstein

        Cheers…for now Muhahahahaha

  94. TalonStripe

    Looks like SOMEONE might and up with an arc of his own!…Again!

  95. Zek16

    ♫ They’re cousins, identical cousins… ♫

  96. Draven

    Is it wrong that I am somewhat jealous of King?

  97. Holly Lovegood

    She’s pretty. :3

  98. Ozimul

    Did anyone else hear Dreamweaver?

  99. Zeek

    Not gonna lie, for a moment I thought that was Fox doing the heart hello to King. >>;

  100. LuxordTimet

    Ain’t nuthin’ wrong wit’ Kansas

  101. gaboris

    Okay seriously, did my comment get deleted cuz it had one keyword in the middle of it or did I pass my limit of talking about shippers for the year? O_o”

    All I said that I mistook Bailey for Fox for a moment and just joked about how there’ll be a bunch of shippers around because of this strip. Is that such a bad thing now? :(

  102. Treveyon

    Kinda of saw this coming, but didn’t think it would be this soon.

  103. Treveyon

    King has a crush!! :)

  104. Firewolf

    LOL XD I am reminded greatly of…hmm, well i can’t find it right now XP but that one drawing of a Corgi holding a ladder and roses flirting with a husky. I think it’s going to be like that very soon :P

  105. Pariah

    Is it just me, or is Rick a master of throwing us curveballs?

    • kingisawsome

      the latter

  106. illeatyourself

    um…what made her think he said his name was Mr. Butt? “Please don’t sniff my butt,” does NOT sound anything like it has “Mr. Butt” in it (well, except for the obvious word “Butt”).

    • Volkenstein

      maybe she was being sarcastic?

  107. PikoPikoKing1337

    Aaawww MAAAN! I’ve been waiting forever on King having his own chapter!!! Now I have to go away for the weekend without internet! Graahhh…

  108. GentleCorgey's#7COMBO

    Ok King, now your Mr. Butt. But that’s ok cause you can make it up by lying to her about your occupation. Say that your not just any ordinary Mr. Butt, but in fact the infamous secret K-9 agent for the US Government: Agent King Butt.

  109. Mlatu

    I wish I could make panel 3 into my new wall paper. It is too cute.

  110. GentleCorgey's#7COMBO

    Also, Bailey in panel 3 reminds me of Winry Rockbell from Fullmetal Alchamest.
    It reminds me of her in the opening holding an umbrella and stretching her hand to help Edward Elric.

  111. Parry

    Please to meet you, Mr. Butt!

  112. cookiesGOOD4u

    I take it all dogs from Kansas have scarfs, or at least the ones closely related to Fox?

  113. AleyxJ

    Hey! That’s were I live! Not actually as farm-ish as you’d think, though.

  114. Chaosmasterdelta

    Why do people assume she is a female?

    • Chaosmasterdelta

      I mean, baily looks male.

      • Foxstar

        Because Rick (The Writer and Artist of this comic) has said a number of times that Bailey is -female-, that’s why.

        • Chaosmasterdelta

          oh sorry, i didnt see him saying that

          • Firewolf

            Dude, Eyelashes XD

          • Chaosmasterdelta

            I thought she was just a girly looking male

  115. jacruz666

    Dog version of Grape :O

  116. Volkenstein

    I shall claim the Biscuit!

  117. Foxstar

    No, she’s not.
