Yay Wolf Christmas is amazing!!!
hehe, and worth the wait ^.^
The gang’s all here!
He’s enjoying it with some new company.
Poncho’s got the sheep!
Also, poor Keene!
All the pup’s want the sheep! Much fun can be had from one stuffed animal!
Indeed, yes, while simultaneously learning a lesson about teamwork in stalking prey and how to move and react as a pack.
Alternately, it’s “every man for himself!” = P
I think it might be the 2nd option.
Who want’s to learn on Christmas?
Oh believe me the wild life knows how to make learning enjoyable for kids so they don’ even notice that tehy’re learning… otherwise they’d never learn anything cuz they’re worse then humans. XD
Yay! The whole Pack in one shot! People are going to want the middle as a wallpaper for sure.
I agree to wanting that as a wallpaper!
Indeed they would.
i would love this as a wallpaper. =3
Working on it. X3
Thanks for the wallpaper, it’s awesome and I am using it right now!!!
I like everything about the 5th panel.
and the 6th is pretty good too.
Woo-hoo! That’s awesome.
Though I’m questioning how “Four Finger Discount” Jack can hang garlands. O_o
Sheer willpower and awesomeness of his part.
Not saying he can’t. it’s just a tad… odd.
I vote for “The Force”. Or was it “The Schwartz” again?
you never read Jerome K. Jerome, evidently…
Not really that hard if he’s using tacks or broad headed nails, just push the tack in enough that it sticks, then let go and use the hammer to get it in the rest of the way. Also I’m sure he’s been without the arm long enough that he’s overcome most of the problems involved. Though Elaine doesn’t look quite so sure either.
If he’s using regular nails, a wizard did it.
One of the wolves (the one next to Snow and Rodney I believe is his name) looks either jealous or mad (or both)
Y U SO MAD, Natalie?
cuz them two relatives are stealing all the time under the mistletoe!
‘Like, guys? it’s my turn NOW!’
A love triangle? Future plot points are being built this day!
I wonder if its due to what seems to be mistletoe above Snow And Rodney?
« Again » ? Oh, my…
And Keene is STILL in there! XD
I wonder if the other ferrets will miss him or not!
I have a feeling that if they have not noticed in a whole month, they probably don’t miss him.
“We should ourselves lucky as well”
I think you may have miss counted, Rick.
I mean missed count.
OK, too much epicness in the middle strip to focus on one single wolf.
But them girls cuddling against their mates…SQUEEEEE!!!
“We should ourselves lucky”
I think count is missing. Great strip as always, though. Happy Holidays!
Oh, Rick, it’s NEVER too late for a christmas strip after christmas!
This is the most awesome so far!
Hey guys, I know about the spelling mistake, but I can’t fix it until like tomorrow afternoon, so stop bothering me about it, okay?
Meh, it’s Christmas. It’s a great strip, even with the typo.
We shall bother you to the ends of the earth! Cuz you’re just That Awesome! ; -)
We could bother him with Christmas carols, just to be festive!
“I despise you, Mister Grinch!”
All I want for Christmas, is Housepets!
I was gonna say the same thing.
yes, sir. whatever you say.
Phew! Lucky I read this cuz I almost made a comment aboot it.
I know, same here! I was carefully to scan all comments. Still, it is a simple mistake and it doesn’t change the fact I love this comic! <3 Looking forward to a new year of them~
i didnt even notice the typo…oh well, its a simple mistake. keep it up Rick! you inspired me to pick myself up and start continuing the comic from my childhood. thanks a ton! =D
Interesting to hear that. Be sure to link it to your name if it gets on the net.
yeah no problem! it might be a while so just be patient lol. by the way its called “South of Nowhere!” and its an anthro comic similar to this one (thats what drew me to this comic in the first place) anyway i should have a site up for the comic within a few months
We should ourselves lucky you even made the strip!
theres a typo i dint notice well my grammer is hrabil so i cant tell the difrents good comic by the way also dont let pepol get to u
Who’s the wolf eating the candy canes?
My guess is Daryl or other Daryl, and he looks kinda fat…
Other Daryl. Dary’l’s the one with the Kwanzaa gear.
no, other Daryl is the one living permanently with Miles, as introduced to Peanut. Daryl is the eating-candy guy
But the tags agree with SRGNB right now, so are the tags mixed up?
I don’t think the tags are ordered based on the picture.
Yes but if you click them the Daryl tag leads to the Daryl introduced in “The Visitor’ Arc, while the other Daryl tag leads to the one recently introduced.
As seen [here], Rick switched Daryls on us. = P
So where’s Bruce?
In the bat-cave?
Candy? Read the box. Amazingly shaped ORNAMENTS. I hope he figures it out soon though!
i think it says “Amusingly”
Let me out…
Maybe later… If we feel like it…
Or, quoting Shrek, “unless of course I can’t find you, or if I forget.”
wooo!…….Shrek rocks XD
wow sorry that had nothing to do with the comic…my bad. anyway i wonder how the time at the zoo will affect Keene, kind of like he comes out a different person. i dont know but i sure want to find out!
Well, apparently he came out as Karishad…
Been said already, but Four Finger Discount Jack hanging up the garlands is amusing to say the least.
Don’t forget Uncle Deadeye who is hanging the decorations on the tree!
Doesn’t help when other Daryl eats them though.
Just the candy parts though! And besides, candy don’t belong on a tree, it belongs in my stomach! :p
but that’s not candy, it just looks like candy, I think.
Ornaments don’t sit well in stomachs right?
Ornaments are plastic, so no.
Hopefully he has a good digestive system. lol
Looks like Natalie is jealous of Snow.
woah yeah she should be cus with looks like that she coul get any man she want’s.
that middle strip has so much going on
i need to lie down
also, in the strip with the zoo wolves chastising the miles’(?) pack
Natalie is hugging Uncle Dead Eye
why the jealousy in this one?
Uncle Dead Eye might just be her uncle or dad.
They have similar fur color, but then again that’s not a good method to tell if they are directly related…
just a thought, a bit far fetched
maybe she’s peeved because they’re hogging the mistletoe?
That is possible, but it leaves out the room for funny love triangles.
anyone else think Uncle Dead Eye’s shoulder drape thing would look better on Jack? Over his missing arm.
And that’s how Equestria was made!
It is “and that’s the story of kwanzaa,” actually.
I see no difference. : P
yes fianaly snow is here! YES
Joy to the world….the wolves shall sing!
Let life…perplex…our king!
The zoo it made us sickly, our bottoms really prickly
Hey where the heck is Keeeeennnee…hey where the heck is Keeeennnneee….oh wheeeerrree…..oh wherrrreee….the heck is Keene!
WHOOOOO YEAH MAN THAT WAS GOOOD!!! HA
daaaang. that was awesome! u get a cookie *hands u a cookie* =)
thank you rick and merry christmas to ya!
Huh so this is the whole family… ya know when someone thinks aboot a number they tend to actually sense how small that number can really be. Since I first heard the pack has 15 members I kept thinking I won’t be able to remember all the faces and NOW I can almost recall their names without reading the tags… The brain is a weird thing.
that’s the power of awesome of this comic.
And wolf awesomeness
Wolf Awesomeness Overcomes All!!!
LOL to the white wolf XD looks like she’s not taken yet and decides to curl up to him instead of he who is steamed XD Yay for pointless Background fun =D Merry Christmas Rick Griffin!
but that’s a female that is angry.
How can u tell?
It’s possible if you compare the names in the tags with the visible wolves.
The eyelashes, dude.
Didn’t catch the lashes, they’re barely visible this time I’m usually the one to point em out XD oh well
Who’s the one looking jealously(?) at Rodney and Snow?
“Uhh, guys? That’s mistletoe. You’re supposed to be smooching.”
rodney is a verry lucky guy
I’d be jealous of Rodney right then.
good on ya mate! here i was thinking im the only one who’s into snow.
White fur and/or red eyes are among my favorites, she’s got both
its also why I took a liking to the great kitsune
same aye i hope snow’s going to be in more involved in housepets
Natalie it the jealous look wolf…. i think
well with looks like snow’s she could get any man she want’s
I think she would rather get a wolf.
Don’t think she would have much trouble with that either.
nah i don’t rekon she would…….but she’s into other wolf’s no doubt about it
D’aaaaww that’s adorable
HAPPY BOXXING DAY TO ALL AYE GOOD ON YA’Z.
Yay, triple strip! And yay, another wolf pack shot! And poor Keene, having to spend Christmas in the zoo. Hope y’all had a Merry Christmas!
Well at least ONE isn’t naked XD
Happy Holidays Rick
5th panel, ‘but i will admit, we should ourselves lucky as well’?
I’m always for more wolves!
and king, I never thought I would even like him (considering his previous form and motives, but I love him now ^^
happy holidays, everyone!
Wait…how is…how does he plan to hammer in that nail? o.o
he could have had help hammering the nails in earlier. They wouldn’t be visible in the scene due to size, and then he would just have to loop the garland over the nails.
Or he could be using push pins the same way–then he would only need the one hand.
If the wall is soft enough and the nails have broad enough heads I can get it started with one hand like a thumbtack. And I’m nowhere as strong as a Housepets wolf.
Oh, never mind…just saw the hammer in Jack’s mouth. Heh…
The blind wolf is decorating the tree and the wolf with one arm is hanging the decorations on the walls. lol :p
I wonder how in the heck he’s managed hammer in the nails.
Joy to the World , the Lord is co
GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!!!
Would someone please gag him so we can get through this song
“I’ll be home for Christmas… if only in my super fancy expensive helicopter…”
How does everyone know the names of all the wolves? I’ve been following this comic since before they showed up, and I have no clue who is who!
gotta watch the tags,
got all their names.
We’re just supernaturally observant!
Merry Christmas everyone! :3 thank you Rick for continuing to make an amazing comic that always brings a smile to my face no matter what mood I’m in or what I’m going though. you bring smiles to many, many faces. Thank You. :3
Now it’s real happy christmas XD
Wolves are such a proud race, I like the serious look on the wolf next to the conifer. Although you’d think King would look at little more cheerful for the families reunion since Mile’s outing…doesn’t ‘Joey’ have any family at all who miss him? I wonder if his ex-pets felt some remorse. Ah well, nevermind. Hope everyone’s enjoying their relaxing Monday
Heya Rick, love the comic followed it from start to finish x) Just something I noticed which I think is a typo, you wrote “we should ourselves lucky” I think there should be a “count” in there somewhere. It doesn’t bug me but you know for the printing and stuff it maybe a pain. Hope you had a great Christmas! On a side note if you have time ^^; I’m interested in why you chose the style you did for your comic as it’s very different to your dA work? I love both your personal dA style and the comic style, I just found it amazing that both came from one artist as they’re totally different.
He said he was going to fix it when he gets a chance: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2011/12/26/this-was-about-christmas-2/#comment-92826
i thought the same thing too about his art. his dA art is much more “cartoon realism” this is just more comic like i guess. still awesome and much better then mine (i draw in a style really close to this comic—its kinda scary) but regardless i was shocked that is was drawn by him as well.
Merry Christmas everyone! *runs off with the crib*
*sends Three Wise Men after him*
Though now that you mention it, it doesn’t look like the wolves are doing that
Would have sent the Shepherds, but the wolves ate all the sheep…
Oh, right. These are the kind of shepherds that will look all night for one missing sheep. Sounds like they’ll be gone for a while.
Wow, that “Karishad” dude from the zoo is a jerk. He leaves Keene there and no one can get him out? Kinda harsh.
Karishad: He has company, not like I left ‘im in the lion enclosure… sheesh, some people.
I wonder, how does Karishad spends his Christmas?
Do they really have the blind wolf hanging up Christmas lights?
(if he isn’t blind sorry he just looks that way)
Yes, and a one-armed wolf hanging tinsel.
Is one of the females missing an arm as well or is it just me?
It’s just you. *holds up your arm* Want it back?
I would like it, one can never have too many hands, or arms for that matter…
or faces…..mmmmm faces ;D friendship is two friends munching on a well cooked face together—that is all.
Having done a course in computer graphics, I shudder to think how many faces it would take to render that scene
I have a feeling that what will be under the Christmas tree next year will not be presents…
~steals arm back~ … you’re funny… not
Aww adorable wolfie couple curled up under mistletoe
I wonder if keene will learn his lesson
Fur like a day maybe :p
Wait a second, both Elaine and Natalie are tagged in this strip and their introduction strip “From the Inside Out.” Who’s to say it isn’t Elaine fuming over Snow and Rodney?
Rick said in the comments that Natalie was the smaller wolf clinging to Uncle Deadeye. Elaine is the one with the double earrings.
Ah…It seems trivial, I don’t know how much more we’ll be seeing of those two anyways.
We can only hope.
A lot of hope….
Ok I have to admit I came across this comic about 3 weeks ago and have been reading it almost non stop it seems like I can’t get enough of it, Love it, Keep up the Great work Rick and BTW hope your dog is doin fine.
Oh yeah and Happy Holidays to everyone out there
I should mention this comic has placed a physical need within me, I get really, really down unless I can get some sort of housepets fix at least every 30 minutes.
not sure whether this is good or bad…
It’s a great thing!!!
Unless, of course, you need to see a doctor because of it… Then it starts to get pretty bad…
I feel like I’m going to turn in my over-the-break work and get failed because all that can go through my mind is freaking housepets
having friends over is getting awkward, I can’t think of talking about ANYTHING but housepets, and most of them aren’t too crazy about the “furry” scene, so I just have to sit there twiddling my thumbs till someone suggests something else.
Totally worth it mind you.
wow man……ur just as crazy as i am! XD jk jk its all good bro, just chill when u have company thats what i do cause i’m working on my comic all the time and when i’m not, i’m thinking about Housepets! tis a harsh mistress, the world. oh well, i gotta get back to that crazy place called my thoughts. good luck!
Do what I did…
Strap them to a chair and force them to read and love it…
Now all they talk about is Housepets!
…And restraining orders…
I am right there with you I spent the last couple of weeks reading it and I can’t get enough of it ME WANTS MORE!!!! Lol
I wonder if Ponch asked the wolf gal from the zoo pack out.
She could probably talk the zookeepers into letting her. But the zoo’s alpha wolf, now that’s another story
I wonder what Karishad did to tick off this bear? http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lw3mxuaCNk1r1bgp3o1_500.jpg
Something lovably funny and painful.
Wow. Not only is there a wolf missing his right arm and yet putting up tinsel with a hammer and nails, but there is also some ADORABLE furry romance going on on the right side of the middle panel. Why not make a side story for that pair? And is that guy behind them fuming because he didn’t get the girl? WHAT’S THEIR STORY!!? O.O
I honestly think that pair looks as if there is some sort of enormously romantic story behind their relationship and that it should become a side story for the comic.
The pair is Snow and Rodney, as seen in the first of the two “wolves at the zoo” strips.
That’s Natalie behind them. She’s the one who was holding on to Uncle Deadeye in her previous appearance in the second of the two strips.
Click on their tags and all will be revealed.
Is it midnight yet, I NEED MY FIX!!!!!
While waiting for your fix, you can reread the old comics.
Not the same as a new one, but still effective.
Its not the same but I dont think I could ever get old of this, so yes your right very effective lol
Good, and I see that you changed your avatar to Darth Vader Sanchaz! Now all we need is a Deathax!
And the moral of the story is “Be nice to your helicopter pilot or else karma will get you.”
It’s pretty cool the Christmas arc always ends in the legendary ‘triple strip.’
OK… either my roommate is secretly into housepets too, or I refreshed this page in my sleep.
menne menne tacole satana satana
Well just bring it up to your roommate kind of non schalantly<— def spelt wrong lol i think never know unless u ask
That’s some risky business things like this comic (what they consider furry) are looked on like how bino looks on cat-lovers.
I will report my findings on the morrow.
Well dont do it bluntly lol, but do keep us posted, we(I) would like to know how it goes over hopfully well, and not put an awkward feeling between you two just beat around the bush a lil bit
I walked up to them and brought up my computer was strangely refreshing pages when I was asleep, and that her computer was acting fine, she got it, should I use this evilly or as a way to be able to talk about it whenever I can’t/don’t post on here?
Well that would have to be up to you to decide what was her reaction wen u said something
And if she is interested in it, make her a bigger fan! Show her some of the cuter comics if she’s on the fence!
She seemed flustered and a little embarrassed, it took her a while but she realized that 1: not only was housepets open on my computer, but 2: I didn’t keep it up as some big thing, I don’t think I’ll tell anyone who doesn’t need to know, two people to talk about it is better than one.
So are you in the process of converting her to becoming a Housepets fan, or was she always one?
come on what chic doesnt like puppys she’ll love it
She seems interested, but I’m not going to push it, especially since we both know the other is furry now, and if anyone found out it would get painfully awkward, I did email her a few of my favorite arcs though.
And one last perk to making her a Housepets fan is for her next birthday or Christmas present you can get her one of the books! And then read it when she isn’t looking!
And one last thing you don’t have to be a furry to like this comic. A lot of my friends read this comic, and most of them are not furry. Housepets is awesome cause anyone can read it!
that is true, but people can and will assume so…
Anyway in the end we can all agree that Housepets is awesome, and that Wolf Christmas was great! I can’t wait to see the 50th arc!!!
oh snap that’s right! Completely slipped my mind
well Zaitsev all i can say is, dont push it to far with her cuz if she’s on the fence about it now she might jump off and run the other way, but on the other had you two could become the next Peanut and Grape lol
Ill be honest I had no idea about this stuff (furrys) until i was in rosemont attending a car show which just so happend to be right next door to the MFF this year and at first my thoughts were negative untill i started looking more into it needless to say next MFF I am going to make every atempt that i can to go and check it out
Is it weird that this is almost exactly what my Christmas was like…except for the wolves…and someone stuck in a zoo…but other than that it’s the same. Just think of the wolves as people and you’ll get it.
Does the wolf with the missing arm have a name? Hes somehow become my favorite character, and I love seeing him. >3<
“Four Finger Discount” Jack.
On the fifteenth day of Kwanzaa my true love gave to me… 15 wolves a’howling
