Who Still Has A Photo Album Anyway

Discussion (329) ¬

  1. Dissension

    Well, clearly, Peanut still has a photo album. = P

    Also, I think it’s cute that Res hasn’t met a dog before.

    • efhosci

      Well there goes my theory of Res being a secret dog-lover. :(

      • Aeonera

        how do we know he isn’t?

        • Kitch

          Or can’t become one?

      • littlebeast

        No, that just means it’s a better-kept secret than you thought!

    • Zukio

      That photo album is like gold right now, just for the puppy and kitten pictures!

    • Aeonera

      also where did he pull that album from?

    • the fry pwnr

      man i can’t imagen what everyone else looks like as a puppie/kitty, exsept mabey Daisy. XD. wait……… epic puppie/kitty dance party! *everyone starts dancing, even Bino, Pete, Joel [PETA guy], Lady McBeth, and last but not the least……………….. DAISY!XD*

  2. Ryufire

    OMG peanut as a PUPPY!!! o.o

    • rtlstien

      I think this is leading up to when Peanut and Grape meet for the first time! We’ve already seen Grape as a kitten, but never the two of them together!

      *going to bring back the time when Peanut thought Grape was a guy

    • River_Dragon

      Peanut was an adorable puppy! And so…so…ENTHUSIASTIC!!!

      • the fry pwnr

        try to imagen what everyone esle looks like back then

    • silverfang16

      YES!! ^_^

  3. Zukio

    Puppy Peanut!!! This is amazing!!!

    • valerio

      ‘amazing’ being not enough for it

      • Zukio

        This is true. I cannot describe the cuteness in words.

        • Crackles

          Puppy Peanut is just so cute. And adorable. There should be a new, stronger word for something this cute. Like cuteadorable, or cuterable. Yes, puppy Peanut is cuterable.

          • Robin Bobcat

            Actually, the word you want is ‘anerable’.

            It’s from the ‘Cute Overload’ people, who are used to dealing wih face-melting levels of cuteness.

          • Crackles

            Huh, the more you know. I’m still going for cuterable, or actually cuteable sounds better.

    • Maengun1256


      • the fry pwnr

        thats soooooooo cute! :] rick, you brought this apone yourself, and know you have to make an ENTIRE photo album of them.or else i will hunt you down and hit you with a memory foam pillow thats 60 below.

        • the fry pwnr

          first person to say my password and secondary will get a FREE puppie peanut!
          STEP RIGHT UP place your guess. once in a life time opertunity!

          • the fry pwnr

            if you not only guess my passwords, but make me laugh and get a…………… pause for afect ………….. a GRAPE KITTY!!!!! thats right you heared me!

          • the fry pwnr

            thats right you all get kitty-cat Grape if 1 of you can make me rofl. EVERYONE gets Grape. EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!

    • LupisLight

      Puppy Peanut looks oh so very huggable! ^_^ Actually, so does present day Peanut, come to think…

      Love where this little flashback is going!

  4. Kajex, Sorcerer Supreme

    Nothing in real life really prepares you for the internet- both at its grossest and cutest.

    • volkoseba

      Or at its cruelest, when it juxtaposes grossness with cuteness.

  5. rtlstien

    OMG cuteness overlord!

    Does not compute!
    Does not compute!
    Does not compute!

    *Head explodes

    SO CUTE!

    • Ryufire

      Rick we need a Peanut puppy plush toy! :D

      • Zukio

        Puppy Peanut Plushies!!! I must have five!

        • AuvaAkita

          Ok Rick, now you’ve Really gone and done it this time!
          We demand plushies of all the characters! lol

          • Barker

            Just King and puppy Peanut will suffice for me. Want so much!!

          • IceKitsune

            I don’t think it would be possible to do a Puppy King as he is a magical transformation not an actual dog.

          • Musclecar326

            No! We need life size plushies! that would be awesome.

          • AuvaAkita

            A Big King plushie will do just fine for me :3

          • Barker

            Didn’t mean puppy King. Peanut, Grape, Max, King, Bino, puppy Peanut, kitten Grape, Sabrina, and maybe Karishad would all make great plushies with a consistent sale rate. Fido and Miles would probably sell as well, but buffness may be lost in translation to plushness.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Don’t forget the ferrets.

            And plush wolf cubs.

            And, Barker, I can’t believe you left out plush Tarot.

          • Tommyrazor

            I’d buy one for sure if I had the money too. >.<

          • Barker

            Geh… cast too big. Forgot Tarot. Although… now there are too many plushies…. Just want King and puppy Peanut.

          • Kohaku Nightfang

            I want plush Miles. Idc if he loses buffness. I love wolves :D I would also love plushy puppy Peanut and kitten Grape.

        • Snowmon

          I don’t care what size they are, I’ll make them myself if I have to…
          (PS. I’m terrible at making cloth dolls)

          • Zukio

            If you do make them, I’ll buy one!

      • valerio


      • silverfang16

        Oh god yes…

    • Tommyrazor

      Reader down! *gathers head in a jar* I agree so much adorablness. ^^ Let’s hope the guy from the asdf movie that is allergic to adorableness doesn’t see this. >.>

      • Lunyk

        He can’t, he died already right?

        • Tommyrazor

          Exactly! Yet people somehow keep resurrecting him. O.o

  6. Draven


    • Zukio

      And I want more!

    • Ryufire

      It’s hard to vote now! King as victorious over awesomeness? Or Puppy Peanut the adorablenessocity Cuteness? :P *Rubs chin*

      • Zukio

        Cuteness beats awesomeness in my books!

      • valerio

        system’s unable to compute due to excess of both parameters

    • Cm4F


    • Robin Bobcat

      Adorable Peanut Is Adorable.

  7. KJOokami

    “I’m gonna sniff EVERYBODY!”

    Oh, Peanut. This is why we love you. XD

    • Snowmon

      (>M<) I can even hear his cute little voice saying it!

    • Crackles

      That totally made today’s comic. It just fits so perfectly :D

  8. Snowmon

    Aw his first words… :D
    Good thing that they weren’t “I’m going to pee everywhere!”

    • Zukio

      I think this is just his first words at the shelter. It could still end up that those were the first words.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        They’re his first words in the strip.

        • Aeonera

          well they ARE his first words in terms of chronological order of this comic, as in these are his earliest known words. now, back to squee

  9. IceKitsune

    OMG So Cute! *hugs Puppy Peanut* I wonder if we are going to get the story Peanut and Grapes first meeting.

    • FlintFang


      • the fry pwnr

        and make an entire album of them. or ladyMcBeth will be apone you.

  10. Oren Otter

    I own a cat, but I’m a dog person.
    One of my personalities is a dog.

    • volkoseba

      I’m a person person. One of my personalities is a person.

      • anon_omis

        I saw what you did there

        • Maengun1256

          And I saw what you did. Gawd Puppy Peanut, ME WANTS

          • the fry pwnr

            PEANUT: THE FIRST GENERATION ……………………………………..
            hahahahahahahahahahahah! ;]

        • volkoseba

          Actually, what I think you’re thinking would be pure, awesome coincidence.

          • Maengun1256

            Indeed are youj thinking what iam thinking cuz I think your thinking what iam thinking lmao

  11. xhunterko

    People who, you know, like to hold real photos.

    • volkoseba

      That’s what printers and glossy paper are for. (Ok, so film photography isn’t dead… yet… but Kodak is going bankrupt.)

      • River_Dragon

        When they figure out how to make digitals into real photos, then life will be perfect–or not.

        • volkoseba

          300ppi and whatnot, yeah?

  12. AuvaAkita

    PUPPY!!!!!!! 8D
    OMGosh So CUTE!!!!! And with that one little Tooth hanging out!!!!! X3

  13. Lahi

    It’s mine peanut!

  14. senorpie7

    I noticed the improved drawing of peanut in the 2nd frame. And I suppose we are going to learn some stuff about our k9 friend! And where is grape?? I did not know pouring milk took so long!

    • Zukio

      She might be getting snacks as well. Also I think that the time difference has been less than a minute.

      • Keldor

        I’m impressed that Peanut managed to whip that thing out in such a short time. ’round here, finding a photo album involves 20 minutes of digging through a closet…

        • Zukio

          I think their house might be very clean and organized. That or he got it beforehand knowing he could embarrass Grape.

    • efhosci

      She’s making tea, actually. I think. And yeah, I hope we get more Peanut puppy pictures! *squeeeee…*

    • Keldor

      Grape will come back right in time for Peanut to be showing Res a particularily embarresing picture of Grape, incidentially titled “Princess Periwinkle”, because they hadn’t decided on Grape yet.

  15. Draven

    We’ve seen kitten Grape and now puppy Peanut. We got the full set.

    • Zukio

      We’ve also seen Sasha and Bino as puppies. I hope we will eventually see them all as puppies or kittens!

      • Zukio

        And now I see the title for the arc. This is now my favorite Arc!

      • Frank

        Baby Looney Tunes Housepets?

    • Dontlookmenaked

      That’s going to make Monday worth it!

  16. leaffly

    1. Aww HOW CUTE DARN IT!

    2. Does that mean Peanut is older or younger? Or the same age?

    • Zukio

      According to the cast page Peanut is older.

      • volkoseba

        But cats live longer…

        …then again, this comic (and therefore, any characters in it) can exist for as long as Rick does, and longer if he allows someone else to continue it after he stops…

        • AuvaAkita

          That will be the most horrific day ever :(

          • Zukio

            May it never come any time soon.

          • rtlstien

            May that day never come at all!

          • Zukio

            I wanted to say that, but if Rick needs to stop then I think we should let him.
            Plus I don’t think he’s found a way to stop death yet.

          • AuvaAkita

            Who want’s to be Ricks apprentice? *raises paw* :3

          • Barker

            I can’t draw. D”:

            Well… I can, but you guys don’t wanna see it.

          • volkoseba

            Sorry for bringing that topic up, guys, but I had the comics from Sunday, February 13th, 2000 on the table… that’s the issue in which the last original Peanuts strip appeared, the day after Charles Schulz died…

      • 2MK


        How old is Peanut, anyway?

        • Zukio

          Last time I saw anything on it he was 5 human years old.

    • Crackles

      “Even though she’s younger, she often acts as the big sister to Peanut” quote from the Cast page.

  17. Lahi

    Delete previous comment please. Stupid autocorrect….

  18. Firewolf

    I am not EVEN going to say how freaking cute Lil Peanut is because everyone will already :P

    • Barker

      Petition to change tag from “puppy Peanut” to “Lil Peanut”!

      • Draven

        I’ll sign.

      • jood580

        i sign too

      • darkgloomie

        I was actually gonna propose peanut Peanut, but I’m partial to Lil’ Peanut too

        • Barker

          Lil’ Peanut can the flow into Lil’ Grape and Lil’ Bino and Lil’ Sabrina and… you get the idea. Most importantly, the inevitable plushies can be called Lil’ Housepets!.

          • Zukio

            Then the spinoff cartoon or comic Lil’ Housepets! will become an instant hit with children.

  19. IceKitsune

    Oh God Peanut is going to tell him Grapes original name!

    • Musclecar326

      That would not end well for Peanut or Res!

      • McFly

        Okay, where’s the frying pan?!

        • AuvaAkita

          It’s currently being passed around and being licked by many dogs.

          • Zukio

            What about the broom?

          • AuvaAkita

            The broom…is probably somewhere in the kitchen!

        • Frank

          Hopefully not in the same kitchen where Grape is making tea

    • Argent Stonecutter

      That was my next thought. Or else he’s about to when Grape returns from the kitchen. And hits him with the teapot.

  20. Draven

    I sense a flood of Gravatars from panels 2 and (obviously) 4

    • Crackles

      Now what made you think that?

    • Zukio


      • McFly

        Someone didn’t waste their time. ;)

        • AuvaAkita

          Nope i didn’t :p

        • Zukio

          It was worth it my friend… It was worth it!

          • AuvaAkita

            It’s totally worth it! Cuteness like his just Can’t go ignored!

          • Zukio

            The cuteness surpasses all mental shields and overwhelms you!

    • Barker

      Right… Gravatar. I should probably do that….

    • Frank

      Yes! Lord, Thank you! I knew I couldn’t be the only one that thought the close-up in panel 2 was also cute beyond words!

  21. ShiroNoOokami

    My heads is going to explode from the sheer adorablenessocity.

    • Ryufire

      Second! :P

    • Zukio

      My entire body has exploded from the adorablenessocity!

    • valerio

      i went chinese syndrome with cuteness

      • Fawkes

        You Mean “China Syndrome”, Where the Reactor goes critical and melts out the bottom of the ship, and jokingly goes through the earth to China.

    • jood580

      the world exploded from um must i pick 1 or can i pick two

  22. Crackles

    Arc about how Peanut and Grape met the first time? Shut up and take my money!

  23. Chip Uni

    Puppy Peanut is adorable. Absolutely adorable.

    Except the puppies I’ve known didn’t restrict their sniffing to everybody. They wanted to smell EVERYTHING!

  24. volkoseba

    Tarot walks in…
    Res, wanna see Pridelands?

    • Zukio

      *pushes Tarot out of house
      And don’t come back unless puppies or kittens are involved!

      • volkoseba

        Wasn’t thinking of this arc in particular… just what Res actually forming a friendship with Grape and Peanut could lead to.

      • darkgloomie

        Well, that could easily be arranged, now wouldn’t it?

  25. Musclecar326

    Awww…. how sad… the animal shelters are still concrete & wire cages in this universe… you’d think since the animals are more human like they’d be treated better as a whole and the shelters would be more comfy…

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Humans keep *humans* in concrete and wire cages too.

      • kingisawsome

        yes but that is different.

        Please do. I guess there’ll be a lot of room to fill ;)

  36. Zlashdrive

    Peanut, so cute and fluffy!

  37. Ryufire

    In a Housepets cartoon, I can picture Puppy Peanut’s voice as Tommy’s from Rugrats and the voice of Goku from DBZ when Peanut is older! Grape’s voice of Mitten’s from the movie Bolt!

    What do you guys think? :)

    • Zukio

      That depends adult Goku or kid Goku?

      • Frank

        I’m guessing kid

      • Ryufire

        No wait, I meant adult Goku for when Peanut is older for his voice not kid Goku sorry lol! Grape when she is older for Mittens voice!

    • AuvaAkita

      I can see puppy Peanut being either Tommy Or Chuckie lol But kitten grape with the voice of Mittens? I can’t see that, but i can see it when grape is older.

  38. Eli

    Hnnng! Too cute! *heart explodes*

  39. valerio

    Peanut in panel 2 keeps looking awesome, tho.
    And lol, i take it no dogs but peanut and joey showed up to the books presentation

    • Zaitsev

      Well just because they were these doesn’t mean Res met them, he was just typing alone before Grape came along.

  40. Russiarules1

    That’s a CUTE! That’s a flashback of Peanut being a cute puppy CUTE!

  44. Elwood Blutarsky

    Housepets reaches it’s historic 50th story arc and we get a long-awaited origin story. AWESOME!!!

    Who else will turn up in this arc?

    • Phantom Tails

      Origin Story eh? Interesting. Grape is one of them for sure.

      • 1boredcanadian

        Maybe Peanut will make a guest apperence.

        • Phantom Tails

          Cue flashback effect!

  45. 1boredcanadian

    Res’ face in the third panel says “I’m intrested but confused” and he’s let down his defences by moving his tail. It means he is letting people into his bubble so he might open up which could be interesting. Also I’ll be yelled at if I don’t join in so…LOOK AT THE CUTE PUPPY!!!!XD

  46. Draco Blair

    You hiy jackpot with this one :D

  47. ZincChloride

  53. falcon01

    ok…just when I thought it was safe to look at housepets again at work….we get the uneblivably cute puppy Peanut with a perfect one-liner….so combine a cutness squeee with uncontrolable laughter and now people are afraid to come near my desk….your fault Rick!

    • jood580

      lol true fans squeee with uncontrolable laughter when ever possible and people want to see what are you squeeeing about.

    Aaaaawwww this is so adroable. I love penuaut.

    If you animated stuff…. Head just exploded.

    • Frank

      I would so do this! (Animating this arc, I mean)

      Too bad I need to eat and drink and…

  57. drasingan


  58. Maengun1256

    Ok Now that we have a name for the arc I have a feeling that WE ARE ALL IN TROUBLE with the cutedorableness of the upcoming strips for the arc idk if I can take it

  59. Valerio

    The Mayan were right. They only messed up the dates.
    When this comic shows Puppy Peanut + Kitten Grape = GLOBAL MELTDOWN!
    but what a way to go! :D

    • Keldor

      Maybe it’ll be a really, really long arc, thus delaying the moment of ultimate d’aaaawm to December? (When is the end of the world anyway? I forget…)

      • Shirosune

        Dec. 21 2012…so yeah, that would have to one really, really long arc. That said…global destruction a d’aaaaaawww really wouldn’t be that bad a way to go.

        • Zukio

          There is a machine that runs on d’aaw power. Because the arc would be so long and be filled with so many cute things, the machine will start to overload and will reach critical condition on Dec. 20. On Friday Dec. 21, we will see something so cute that it will cause the machine to blow up and release it’s energy into the world and thus ending it all…

          • Elwood Blutarsky

            Housepets! won’t end the world… if everyone is gone how would Bino stroke his ego?

    • Maengun1256

      Couldn’t agree with you more

  60. Huskers

    how friggen cute is Peanut as a puppy!!!!??? ooooh i just wanna cuddle him up =3

  61. Argent Stonecutter

    You know, Rick tweeted that everyone would be avataring the 4th panel.

    • Jesse James

      The 4th panel is pretty cute, so I guess it’s understandable lol.

  62. SilverZeo

    Always knew that Peanut would been the one that picked out Grape…

  63. Nerikull

    Puppy…Peanut. *squee’s and falls over* Starting my day with cute overload makes for a great Friday!

  64. WingedwolfGirl

    I cannot help but reiterate everyone else’s comments that yes, puppy Peanut is adorable.

    And Now I will reference and over used meme…

    Thank you.

  65. Roadrunner

    awwwwwwwwwwwwww >w< so cute

  66. Keldor

    “Mom and Dad were convinced I needed a sibling” is no doubt code for “We can’t keep up with him, and he’s bouncing off the walls! Maybe a sibling will distract him?”

    Also, Res’ shy little font is cute.

  67. jood580

    now would be cool is if everyone saw housepets and this is the comic when Ric shows puppy Peanut and kitten Grape

  68. coyoteBR

    “Housepets Babies”? Well, it’s great to know a bit more about Grape and Peanut, but…

    Now I’m having flashbacks of some of the worse animated series on TV…

    • Frank

      Muppet babies?

      • Rick Griffin

        Muppet Babies rocked, man

        • Dissension

          It totally did! I watched that show all the time. x3

          • Elwood Blutarsky


        • Frank

          which is exactly why I said it like that

        • IceKitsune

          Yes it did :D

      • coyoteBR

        Come, there was a plethora of those spin-offs. Not only the mentioned, but also flintstone kids, a pup named Scooby-doo, Yo yogi and so on, so on, so on…
        Muppet Babies was a bit better

    • darkgloomie

      Baby Looney Tunes?

      • McFly

        That show was actually good. In my opinion, anyway. ;)

        • River_Dragon

          Tiny Toons was better, even if it was a different series of characters. Baby Looney Tunes made no sense to me.

    • GameCobra

      I remember watching Muppet Babies every Saturday and Tiny Toons on Weekdays. Although i wish i could remember soem of the episodes, Muppet Babies had the background references and Rowlf (who was strangely my favourite character next to Gonzo) and Tiny Toons had the crazy silliness with actual story-telling.

      • Maengun1256

        utube my friend is a wonderful thing

  69. Hali

    Puppy Peanut for the WIN!

  70. KnightPuppy

    PUPPY PEANUT’S ADORABLE! That’s all I have to say.

  71. Tattorack

    Peanut flashback arc (I think)!!

  72. watchin'theParade

    with a aww

  73. rakaydos

    …and the next pridelands book: the Wolves of the North.

    • Frank

      Why would Miles want to have anything to do with this?

      • rakaydos

        Housecat -> Lions
        Dog-> Wolves.

        Seems like a reasonable leap to me.

        Though if the banished warrior champion of the wolf tribes is named for the discolored fur about his eye, Peanut is going to regret showing Rez his comics.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Don’t all the Pridelands books name drop the series’ title. Like “Fall of the Pridelands” or “Hope of the Pridelands” and “Something, something of the Pridelands” ?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I think jackals and cape dogs and other African canines would be more likely.

  74. Fatalfox

    oh dogs and their..sniffing and tasting everything x3

  75. Timet

    Dawwwwwwwww so cute!

  76. jinxed

    I actually find the close up of peanut more adorable than anything else.

  77. Blackwlf

    Oh god how did you make Peanut even CUTER? This shall certainly be the end of us all.

  78. DantheBuizel

    Lil peanut is so CUTE !!!!

  79. danthebuizel

    Question how do you get the gravitars to work???

    • Maengun1256

      Looks. Liike. You got it

  80. jacruz666

    Now, how the **** did he managed to found the photo album that fast??? D:
    Those stuffs are very hard to find, at least half an hour, AT LEAST!

    • Valerio

      that’s PEANUT for ya!

  81. phosphorus

    Well maybe Pete comes back and turns king into a puppy for some reason answering my prayer for a puppy king
    I don’t care how you do it
    Also a puppy karishad would be adorable

    • Frank

      I think the baby of a fox is called a kit or a cub, not a puppy

      And I don’t know how the real Karishad would take it

      • Corgiwolf

        Yes, a kit. My nickname in some places used to be foxkit.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      King is one of the characters I’d rule out from this arc as he’d still be Joel at the time (probably not even cute kid Joel, he’s probably in college or jail or something by this point).

      But that doesn’t mean we won’t see some other puppies. Bino is a good bet and I could see Fox, Sasha or Tiger showing up too. Possibly Fido too albeit a little older than the others (something he did in his youth was what hooked him up with Sabrina).

  82. Zeek

    PEANUT PUPPY!!!! <3

  83. FerreTrip

    This is going to be tooth-decayingly adorable, isn’t it? And OH GOD THE BABY!PEANUTS ARE ASSAULTING RUN

  84. Corgiwolf

    Oh my God this made my Friday. Actually I think this made my whole year. Forget Gravatars this is gonna be my desktop background (if I can resize it well enough)!

  85. yehoshua

    Sniff ALL THE PEOPLE!!!

    • Valerio

      Beware the nose!

  86. thefirstonethere

    peanut looks super fluffy today.

    • efhosci

      Yeah…and for some reason, I only just noticed how big his ears are in this strip.

    • yehoshua

      He definitely is fluffy, even moreso than usu*gets e-strangled*

  87. black fox

    Omg penut as a puppy so cut and I’m mostly a cat persing

  88. ExtraCheese

    Peanut as a puppy.
    So adorable.

  89. rallyjr

    i just want to sit here and imagine all the different things puppy Peanut could be say while in that pose… “I like you THIS MUCH!”

  90. T-Squared


    *steals him*

  91. T-Squared

    Oh, just to ask, how old is Peanut, based in Human years?

    • IceKitsune

      The only age we got for him was on the old Cast Page. It said that he was 5 IIRC. In the last panel I’m gonna guess he is about 3 which would make Grape about 2 since on the old cast page it said she was younger then him.

      But there is no official ages yet for anyone really.

  92. Ozuan

    This… will be a fitting 50th arc, I think.

    (Also, how many dozens of you now have that as your av?! :/)

    • Zukio

      This is definitely a great arc. And I’m pretty sure there is a dozen of them around.

  93. Draven

    Peanut looks exceptionally fluffy in panel 2.

  94. Lahi

    Vote for housepets guys! If housepets hits first it’s bound to become more famous than most of the top comics

  95. Ilovehousepets

    This strip needs an “X ALL THE Y!!!” picture, just for the fun of it.

  96. Jesse James

    I love Peanut’s facial expression in panel 1. :3

  97. phosphorus

    yes your right, sorry i meant to say kit but i was adoring the thought of a puppy king, soo cute.
    anyways i think rick would have to ask karishad, but im sure karishad would say yes.
    also, i dont know how to reply, how do i?

  98. Tea Leaves

    OK. I’ve had enough. We defiantly need a baby picture of Grape.

  99. IceKitsune

    You know I can just Imagine Grape and Peanuts first words to each other.
    Peanut: “What are you?”
    Grape: “I’m a Cat.” (Also Possible “I’m a Cat, you dumb mutt.”)
    Peanut: “What’s a Cat?” Grape then face palms hard

    • Valerio

      one internet for you, Sir!

  100. Kaorii

    “I’m Gonna Sniff EVERYBODY!” That is the slogan I’m going to use when I run for president :D

    • Maengun1256

      And I would most deff. Give you my vote :D

  101. GameCobra

    My family has three Family Albums. Memories ftw <3

  102. Dan

    AAAWWWW!!!!! Puppy Peanut is SO CUTE!!!

  103. Foxx


    • Zaitsev

      We need current Peanut and puppy Peanut side by side both doing the Dr. Evil pinky

      • Zukio

        I would love to see this!

  104. Tara

    I wonder how Puppy Peanut can talk so well with one tooth/fang. ;D

  105. t-bone

    aint that sweeeeeeeeeet

  106. Wolfenstein

    when are grape and peanut gonna hook up?

    • Tea Leaves

      Gape’s boyfriend is Max, Peanut’s girlfriend is Tarrot.

    • IceKitsune

      It may happen or it may not. Its up to Rick.

    • Crackles

      Hopefully some day, but wouldn’t really expect it. If it’d happen, there would have been most probably even some kind of hints about it already.

  107. Tea Leaves

    OK. Now we need a pic of baby Grape.

  108. Rico

    OHMAHGAWD <3<3<3

    I want to take him home and snuggle him so much! <3

  109. Haftorang

    I have a suspicion this arc is going meta. Res is a story writer after all, and Peanut is detailing what promises to be a very cute story…

  110. spiritkitsune

    I sooooooo want a puppy peanut!!!!!!!

  111. phosphorus

    okay guys, considering this is called housepets babies, that means, i believe, that it will show all or almost all the housepets will be shown as puppies, kittens, or whatever babies of each species is called, soo that means that king, being one of the major charactors will be shown as a puppy, through a false flashback/ someone gets curious about king as a puppy and he makes up a false story shown through a flashback
    its just a common thing they do in shows when theres a section with baby charactors
    soo i hope that possibly got some of you guys hopes up. of course, im not rick, so we’ll just have to see

    • IceKitsune

      I think if we do see the rest of the cast as puppies/kittens it will be very brief. I highly doubt this is going to go though everyone as puppies/kittens as separate flashbacks. This is most likely only going to focus on Grape and Peanut and the pets they know.

      I think at most we will end up seeing Peanut,Grape,Bino,Fido,Joey (and that’s a maybe on Joey),Sasha,and Fox. We are not going to see King as he had not moved in yet and is a magical transformation and not a real Dog. Nor do I think we will see Sabrina or Tarot (as they likely have not moved in yet, if they do it will be a background cameo) or Max either as again he had not met Peanut or Grape yet and has no reason to show up (though maybe a background shot of him will be in it or something). A lot of the more minor characters like Tiger or Marvin will most likely not show up either, for the same various reasons as stated above.

    • Foxstar

      King’s not going to show up as a puppy, so i’ll tell you that right now.

    • Frank

      You don’t have to continually think how cute a stubby-legged corgi PUPPY WOULD BE NO STOP THINKING ABOUT IT

  112. gekkokkid

    ahhh peanut looks soo cute when he was a puppy

    • Polo

      Peanut’s always cute, just more so as a puppy :o

  113. Maengun1256

    YES!!!!!!! What about a Res kitten, figure it this way he is looking through peanuts photo album the Res has his own lil flashback

  114. Draven

    I’ve thought about it long and hard, I cannot imagine a single sentence that lil’ Peanut could have said that wouldn’t be more cute just because of the way he is standing.

    • Zukio

      I’m gonna hug everyone!

      I like this one as an alternative, but sniffing is better.

      • Draven

        I’m gonna love them *this* much

  115. phosphorus

    Yeah atleast we get to see puppy peanut which is cute enough to make my face melt

  116. phosphorus

    Seriously because of this comic i have to wear a mike myers mask for the rest of my life
    thank you rick,

  117. phosphorus

    Sorry I’ve commented so many times this comic has just blown my mind

    • Zukio

      I believe it has blown many of our minds.

      • Maengun1256

        YES I don’t remember the last time the comment section went on for multiple days at once

    • Valerio

      you’re not alone, son. you’re not alone…

  118. Valerio

    I wonder what Res’ reaction will be when Peanut tells him he honestly believed Grape was a tomcat…

  119. Lionbone

    Rick, do you allow people making plushies of your characters?

  120. phosphorus

    I want to start a petition to turn housepets into a tv show
    With ricks consent of course

  121. GameCobra

    “It’s dangerous to sniff alone! Take This!”

    *watches Peanut raise a wooden pencil in the air triumphantly*

  122. phosphorus

    Omg….. I don’t get it

  123. phosphorus

    Sorry I guess my hopes are based on tv show “archetypes ” less than Ricks imagination

  124. phosphorus

    But foxstar are you a administrator

  125. phosphorus

    Wait isn’t king already a puppy because in one comic fido refers to king as a pup
    And then there’s happiness is a warm puppy

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I think that’s just a general diminutive referring to his size.

    • Foxstar

      No, King is not a puppy, he is a mature dog.

  126. Fawkes

    There is also the possibility that should King accept Doggyhood reality would change to match.

  127. phosphorus

    i think off sight too much
    i really should just plain think more

  128. phosphorus

    also, how to i get a gravatar, if thats what you call it,
    the little picture to the right of your comment/name

  129. phosphorus

    wait… sorry i get comments real late sometimes, but what do you mean if king accepts doggyhood that reality would change to match?

    • Fawkes

      Well we saw that Pete had the power to control King’s name, the game may just alter reality so that Joel/King was never human, were he to decide he is a dog. Possibly even going all the way back through his line changing them too. Cosmic Power Plays tend to have unintended consequences in most fantasy and fiction.

  130. phosphorus

    i am really hoping fox will be shown as a puppy, that would not only melt my fake face mask, but also create a interplanetary rift that would destroy kansas as a whole that immits from my mind from the cuteness of a puppy fox
    cause the only thing cuter than a puppy peanut/king is a puppy fox or kit karishad,
    but thats not gonna happen

  131. phosphorus

    hey rick, they have a group on steam dedicated to you and housepets
    thats awsome and i joined right away
