Well, now the dog tags and bandanna are explained. = P
I like that Bino was just following Fox’s orders.
Wonder when he became a bookworm…
Possibly after he was kidnapped for the first time! “Enough of the action star stuff, I’m settling down.”
I just though of something his first Kidnapping might have happened during this flash back.
a very distinct possibility, sir
Its also possible if it does happen here Grape may have some hand in saving him. Which might have softened his stance on Cats in the future and warmed the other dogs up to Grape.
Though if it doesn’t happen now its possible that Grape just beats him up or tells him off and that earns her the respect of the dogs.
…I don’t think his attitude regarding cats changed much from then.
His attitude about dating cats and liking cat things (except Pridelands) didn’t change but he seems less harsh towards them and most likely would be less willing to do something like this.
Maybe he just grew up?
Or did he just meet Sabrina?
He has a personality overhaul apparently
Yeah, it’s interesting that their dynamic became reversed.
Not really. The younger Fox is just using his bandana differently than his kin. =P
The question is, when did he lose this paranoia?
Over cats? He didn’t.
Nice use of a bandana.
Fox looking like a bandit to cute
Fox was quite the rebel child.
Also I think this is the first time we’ve seen what his collar looks like, unless its changed by now.
The collar fox currently has is dark yellow
Thanks for telling me!
Rick if I may make one small request, for those of us using our Cellular device,lol, to look at your wonderful art, could you please also post the ALT TXT, by the TAGS or something of that nature, thank you
But then that wouldn’t be ALT text.
Very True lol
I think you actually mean Title text. Alt text only shows on mouse hover in Internet Explorer – in all other browsers, you need Title text to get that functionality.
Nope I ment ALT TXT cuz iam using a phone Ergo no mouse to hover lol
If it were alt text, you could cancel loading the comic and the text would appear in its place. Alt stands for alternate. Title text, on the other hand, is what appears on mouse-over
Better picture of Fox’s dark yellow collar:
ALT TXT PLZ
The alt text is: “And put on some Black Sabbath–oh wait, we’re supposed to be quite”
Thank you Sir
d’awww Fox is being all hard core. But hes just to cute.
Black trenchcoat? Deep chiz is going down…
Now all he needs are some sunglasses. http://www.housepetscomic.com/2011/08/01/the-only-way-to-end/
Classic, Oh wait does this mean that wed get to see a Baby Bunny Zach?????? Plz let it be Rick Plz
Zach, unfortunatelly, did not spent his, huh… Bunnyhood at Babylon. http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/12/25/housepets-christmas-edition/
Bailey is in that comic, so she’s not a new character. Mistery solved.
my comment was supposed to go here
why do these two comments sound just like king.
while Baily was in that comic at the time she didn’t have a name.
so while the character might not be new her name is.
OMG PUPPY FOX IS TO CUTE!!!
you forgot the”D’AWWWWWWWWWW!” but i agree……….. D’AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!! SO CUTE!!!! RICK….. you know what most people like me want to see……. PUPPIE D*head explodes do to imagenation overload*
Oh yeah how dare I for get that
*BOOM* dangit there goes Kansas
oh no, Toto, I don’t think anyone’s in Kansas anymore
Nope sorry the cuteness got the better of me lol
Hey bro that’s my line
Fox being pushy and aggressive? So what… Bino eventually ate Fox’s soul and turned him into a quiet bookish do-gooder?
Its like a Twilight Zone (and not the one with the Vamps and Werewolfs)
I think Fox simply grew up while Bino never did. In the process Bino just kinda took over.
Also yes, Husky puppy. <3
I think we all went through that phase at some point
Bino is SOOO short! How big would a little king be?
About as tall as an average human of his age, I’d guess.
But a Corgi puppy would be really really short however
At this time, King was Joel, who still would have been an adult human. = P
I’m well aware of that Diss , I was saying that an actual Corgi Puppy would be very very short and adorable. Also Rick should total draw one in a background group shot just for the heck of it.
He’s off in college or something having the time of all-too brief human existence…or in jail having the worst time of his thankfully brief human existence.
Draw a king puppy and put that pick in the Bonus section that would be B-Awsome
Puppy King: What the?! This isn’t even canon! And I’d still be a full grown human too, this arc’s like only 5 years ago, tops!
Well we know that a puppy king won’t exsit but as a BonusPic that would Be awsome
Uh, that was my idea of the fourth wall breaking complaint that King would use if he were to be depicted in that way.
and Grape is smaller than Bino, must’ve been tiny back then
Fox going off to be the hero, why am I not surprised?
Must resist “barrel roll” urges…
LOL!!! ………………………………………. LOL?
hee hee… they have animal-sized instruments too
Ha ur so right
THIS IS ALL SO ADORABLE, I AM GLAD I STAYED UP TO SEE IT
Silent Black Sabbath? What about a walkman? (it is the past, after all…)
It’s not that far in the past. = P
True, but I have to imagine that pets this young wouldn’t be given the newest and most expensive technology by their ‘parents.’
Yeah were talkin DiscMan now
I had one of those… my musical tastes at the time weren’t the greatest, and the government hadn’t started the crackdown on filesharing, so I downloaded a bunch of video game music and Weird Al and burnt it on to a CD… I don’t think I ever made another after that.
I had like 5 of them things and still have them (gawd I feel old) and yeah I think we all did that lol,
*hummin Mario Tune
Cats. They’re always planning.
Scheming is more like it.
Now Fox don’t try being Bruce Willis it can only end badly as many Youtube videos have proven…wait…black trenchcoat? Why can I only think of The Matrix?
*panics and takes both* So now what happens?
Ummmmmmm….. Hmmmmmmmmm…… Well that’s a first never seen any one take both, Well guess we will find out won’t we
Wow Bino’s scrapes healed fast, also Fox being the assertive one is a change for the better, too bad it didn’t last
Fox is assertive in the present (when he needs to be!). As far as Bino’s scratches, they’re still visible.
Well yeah, but you can tell he isn’t the one giving the orders anymore. Maybe he’s utilizing the fact that Bino isn’t in charge yet? Just getting his kicks in before its over.
But then again he doesn’t shrug away from Fido’s accusations, so he’s still got a backbone clearly.
But i thought that Bino and Fido were the founders of the club, so even if Fido is in charge, Bino wouldent have to listen to another member, even if he was older than him, right?
Maybe since Bino was so scrawny back then Fox could muscle his way into bossing him around, or some high octane maneuvers and/or trickery that would adhere to his action movie lifestyle.
But Fido is right there, why would he let Fox boss his little brother around like that, i mean fox should not really have any power in the club, right? (Plus Fido always tried to do the right thing even before he was a police dog)
Well maybe he knows that Bino is arrogant and is letting Fox put him in his place.
Must not have worked too well
Lol I like how bino still has the scrachis on his face
This little details make it so awesome.
Wow, puppy Fox was a jerk! Thank goodness he mellowed.
lol ….. trenchcoat thats priceless
Fox was SO Johnny Depp-ish!
that is the FIRST thing i thought too. totally Johnny Depp-ish ^_^
Rick i must request to see puppie Daisy. just for the sake of everyone who enjoys this comic.
all who agree say/type ”I”…. all who appose say/type ”nay”
I’d say a Sasha-Daisy combo platter
rick…….. you know you want to. just do it. puppie sasha and puppie daisy have been waiting a long time to be in a strip.
Baby Bunny Zach!!!
We saw puppy Sasha here
Actually it’s “aye”. It’s an Old English thing
Aye, it is thus.
Obviously we need to adjust it a bit:
All those in favor say “I”. All those in disfavor say “you”.
Boy, Fox sure changed a LOT. I’m definitely looking forward to that story.
Whoa, Black Sabbath?!? Now it’s official,, Fox is the coolest dog around! (at least for me =p)
not an “action blockbuster” huh, well i suppose not, but then what do we call it when your best friend is was also once you worst enemy?
A plot point?
Why is it when I post a Post about Fido being a Nerd it gets deleted? prob. Like this one will
Well, there are terms of service above the comment box. You’ll also find an e-mail address to contact the moderators there. That’s the preferred method for getting assistance with comments.
True that’s the route I should’ve went just didn’t see my comment being offensive or anything
Fox VS Grape…or is he just playing a bad guy for a K9 demonstration?
Next comic: “The Fox and the Grape”.
“I told you she was sour!”
“It is easy to despise what you cannot get!”
If I take the Trenchcoat + the Glasses, can I safely make a reference to JC Denton? (Your a nerd if you get the Reference, and should be proud as such )
Man I miss my PS2, oh Gawd I’m more of a nerd than I thought *facepalm
What glasses? I don’t think Fido’s giving his over to Fox.
Really, with the bandana as a mask plus a trench coat I was thinking of something a bit older.
(And by “a bit older”, I mean “older than anyone here”. )
Hey I was thinking of old cowboy movies where the bad guys wore bandanna masks and sometimes trenchcoats so I wasn’t that far from your thought process. Also Is the Shadow part of an old radio show from before they had tv? It sounded like ti and that is seriously cool if so
My vision is augmented.
Also: Gunther? “Sticks and stones”
Oh yeah just what the doctor ordered, told ya I can’t wait to see someone who was totally different.
Somethings about to happen!
Puppy Fox is such a cutie I love him
I don’t know if someone discussed about it already, but…
Why aren’t cats allowed at the lecture? If it concerns safety measures (and the heck, folks, the argument ’stranger & treats’ has creepy implications), then puppied AND kittens should be lectured by Ralph. Especially considering that Fido considers it an official matter the ‘neutral stance’.
Fox and Bino don’t like cats (because they think they are planing something) So they went behind Fido’s back and put up the sign saying no cats. I highly doubt that Ralph cares that a cat would come to his lecture (because as you stated the lecture is good for both puppies and kittens), I think that Ralph is most likely going to try and stop Fox from kicking out Grape.
Well, to be fair cats usually are planning something, often of the “sinister” variety.
Dude, Fox was such a boss back then. What happened to him? D:
he got kidnapped.
Fox used to push Bino around? Totally unexpected.
My, Fido was surely fluffy yesterday!
This will be awesome.
Wow, so Fox was the jerk back then…funny thing is, when it comes to poor peanut, he usually still is.
Still waiting for you to come to your senses, Fox. Seeing how far you’ve already come, my hopes are high.
I just noticed Fido’s F is missing in the last panel
oh my GOD ITS TRUE!!!
kill him, kill him for this heresy!!!
The “F” is likely printed on only one side of the tag, so it might have twisted around so we see the back. Oh, Bino’s tag is missing its “B” in the second panel too.
Dont try to apologyse for him
hes going down, everybody leave the ship!…
Nha just kidding.
A little mistake will not kill nobody..i hope = (
detales detales no one will notice them
……and then Fox got his butt kicked by Grape, which permanently changed his personality.
Then that must have been one vicious butt kicking.
We all know Grape is capable of that. She’s just that awesome
Fido sure was a stringy little thing back then.. I think it’s sorta funny how Bino seems to be so used to getting hurt, that his reaction to being clawed in the face is to just ignore it. Oh, right. Obligatory Fox observation:
His owner -is- a policeman after all. Action, adventure, etc. Maybe he told him a few stories.
Fox is so cute here. <3
Seem’s possible for me. Most interesting is the fact that he was transformed from an irresponsible puppy to a pretty smart dog.
Talking about Bino, maybe his tendency to be ignored or hurt make him as mean as he’s today. I would really like to see if this flashback ends with Fox being kidnapped.
Last thing: I’m not a native English speaker and I’m not sure what’s the correct pronunciation of Bino’s name. I suppose it’s BYE noh.
You know you have the power to meltdown the world with
cuteness Mr Griffin.
“HOUSEPETS PUPPY & KITTEN WALLPAPER”
Rick, I was wondering, have u ever thought of creating this comic into some sort of a cartoon show. I’ve been a long time reader of housepets and it would b pretty cool to hear grape and peanut have a conversation. Just wondering
I know some people who are in the tv business and I’ve worked out a soundtrack with my ukulaylee and mandolin
We seriously need Puppy and Kitten Plushies of the cast…
Dying from aww overload. This arc is too much.
Wow–Fido was a dork and Fox was pretty immature, and Bino…hasn’t changed much.
Was Fox going to go do something on the stage, or was he going to try and find out what Grape was doing?
Perhaps its both, he is going to go on stage and do something (act like a robber perhaps by the way he was wearing his bandana) and now he is going to find out what Grape is doing.
I think Fox is just trying to look cool, or like an action star.
Also very possible
Well, he is the only dog who puts on a leather jaket in the winter, no one else has more than a scarf
He’s just a dog who can appreciate a classy leather jacket
That he is
So much talk about a bouncer made me want to see Rex as a puppy… gotta love those chubby cheeks
I thought I posted a comment, but I guess my squeee was too high-pitched to be heard. And puppy Fox might be the best thing since King.
I love how fox has his bandana like he’s some western outlaw and actin all tough.
Ah yes the trench coat! Details, details!
Also this comic has me wondering how old officer Ralph is.
Hehe! I liked seeing this yesterday. It’s like a birthday present but it’s for everyone! Best kind of present!
Now he’s ready to rob a bank!
Fox in the bank:
“Hands up!! I have cuteness and I know how to use it!”
O_o!!!!!! Fox = The One!?!
So, having taken the last 2 days or so to read through the ENTIRE history thus far published here. Approving nods all around!
As for Fox taking on Grape? A battle worthy tale! Popcorn anyone?
What do you mean a battle worthy tail?
It would be fun to watch (even popcorn worthy) but Fox would lose hands down in about 5 seconds (not much of a tail)
I think everyone would agree
Ooh, is someone planning a [fluffy tail fight]?
Welcome new devotee! If you feel like it, please join us in the forums. We have popcorn – especially here: http://www.housepetscomic.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1514&start=0
No way… Fox? He is a…. NERD! Who still thinks black trench-coats are still awesome and cool?
Yep, but some years ago, they were trendy. Since this is a flashback history, we must not think in nowadays terms, but … ::ahem:: go ahead with Fox’s “Pup Fiction”
Now I’m thinking about a scene…
Peanut: Where did you get this handerkerchief?
Grape: It’s not a handerkerchief, Peanut, it’s a bandana
Peanut: Where did you get this bandana?
Peanut: What about Fox?
Grape: Fox’s dead, honeybunny. Fox’s dead
Hmmm, I coulda sworn there were more pages then this….oh well. I wonder if the cat invader backstage is Sabrina…
Its Kitten Grape, dident you read the comic when grape scratched bino in the face?
Actually, she cut the sign, Bino’s face was in the way
not the point
are you sure she didn’t cut Bino and the sign was just an innocent bystander?
Fido. Such a Nerd and Buzzkill
Cause making sure his neighborhood chums NOT being doggnaped (as Fox would be sometime in the future) and make sure they don’t cause trouble with the adults by messing around with their cats. Let’s all listen to the dog that going to wear a black trenchcoat with a yellow scarf on his face who chooses to start fights with a girl kitten…
Bawhahaw “Not yet it isn’t” -loves on puppy Fox-
I would love on fox but the cuteness caught me on fire and destroyed Kansas and also because I might kidnap him myself
And thus we now know the story behind Fox’s first kidnapping – dragged away by a rabid fan…
And here we have a perfect setup for a Clint Eastwood (extract) moment…or something similar. I wonder how Grape is going to deal with Fox? Oh the witty scenarios do open up!
A part of me is hoping Grape deals with Fox the same way she dealt with Bino.
You know, I had a thought. Even though Bino and Fido started the GoDC, they weren’t particularily respected members of the community at this point. Bino only got respect for being Fido’s brother, and Fido himself got respect for his hard work training at the Academy. At this point, Fido was likely just considered another dweeb, like Joey, and Bino not much better, leaving Fox as the cool pup on the block.
it’s funny that fido actually looks OLDER here, because he has grandpa specs on his nose rather than cool guy specs above his eyes.
also, isn’t it amusing that the only ‘old’ dog at the good old dog’s club event is Sergeant Ralph? Everyone else is puppies.
well… hopefully mean ol’ fox will get humiliated by grape and learn his lesson..
i wish bino would learn HIS lesson, too much ignorance
all Fox need after his coat is black sunglasses, then he will be like straight out of matrix
fox is such a dork, thats why i love ‘im
well as a puppy atleast
It seems like the only one who has really changed over the years is Fox. Fido is still awesome, Grape is still a little Malicious but a sweetheart at heart, Peanut is still a loveable-goofball, and Bino is still…Bino. Thank God Fox mellowed out or he might have been as popular as Bino
