  1. Ryufire

    Awesome-sauce, a King has appeared! ^^

    • rtlstien

      I’m betting Boris is from Ukraine… it’s because of his tag.

      Or he could be Russian…

      • Ryufire

        His nuclear tag is awesome! He must be Russian! I’m definitely picking up his Russian accent!

        • Keldor

          Not to mention Boris is a Russian name…

          • Ryufire

            A dog fight or arm wrestle between Miles and Boris who would win?

          • rtlstien

            Actually… Boris is a common name is Russia, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Ukraine.

            I still think he is from Ukraine because of his tag

          • rtlstien

            @Ryufire
            Did you know that the name Boris stems from a word meaning wolf?

            So it would be a competition between wolves ^_^

            I’d still vote for Miles.

          • King Sandwhich

            I don’t know Boris is a bit more muscular than Miles.

          • Aeonera

            whether that is doggly possible i don’t know

          • RegularBird

            GET OUT OF HERE B.O.R.I.S.

          • Kohaku Nightfang

            I only want to lol at the fact that Boris was the name of the goose in Balto the cartoon movie

        • CrimsonFox

          I agree, that’s an awesome tag and a perfect name for him, lol

        • tahrey

          …but he only said three words! :D

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            So? He looks like he’d have that accent, never mind his name.

      • Kitch

        We have Boris and Yeltsin. Yeltsin is in the water-balloon war, and they both appeared in Not All Dogs. You do the math.

        • Faokryn

          Wait didn’t Boris have a scar on his shoulder in “Not All Dogs”? Or was that Yeltsin? Ignore me.

          • Kitch

            Rick later moved the scar to Yeltsin.

        • Trefoiler

          Finally, somebody mentioned Yeltsin! Both Boris and Yeltsin first appeared in Not All Dogs when Bino yells both their names, in that order.

          I think if everyone would simply look up a certain chap by the name of Boris Yeltsin, I think we could all hang our hats on this mystery. ^_^

    • King Sandwhich

      King looks like he’s in for some trouble!

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        Ever since he said “You’re not my lawyer” when has he not been?

        • GabiAPF

          Even before that, when was he not?

    • AflacMan13

      What’s really funny is that there is a dog with discernable cleavage. o.O

      Never thought that would show up in this comic.

      • AflacMan13

        I would have to say that she is in fact the most femininely anthroed female dog I have seen thus far.

        • Z. Guru

          He probably calls her “mistress” because of her seductive qualities, wouldn’t you say?

          • The face

            Yeah, she definitely has… that extra little bit. I didn’t notice that! Weeeeiiirrd

      • GabiAPF

        I’d like to think she has a large ribcage. Because… you know… dogs usually have 10 breasts (I had one who was born with 9, but that was probably a mutation), and the ones on top are normally the smallest.

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        It’s just her fur pattern, but it is sort of funny.

      • Muddypaws

        I noticed that too. She’s got girls!

    • Kohaku Nightfang

      Okay I wanted to type this on the last comic, but it won’t let me. To answer why Fido has no glasses is at the very end of Housepets babies I swear that was Fido hugging Fox without his glasses. Also oddly he looks younger than before when he stood in front of the class to teach. Am I wrong?

  2. kimo

    a full moth of on-time updated HUZZA!!!

  3. McFly

    King for king, who whudda thought.

    • silverfang16

      He needs the boost. :P

    • Frank

      Well, apparently Boris did!

    • King Sandwhich

      I don’t buy Duchess as queen though I foresee a twist.

      • The almighty 404

        I foresee another female purebreed entereing. A husky.

        • King Sandwhich

          It’s inevitable.

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            *Insert evil laugh here.*

        • Elwood Blutarsky

          What about a pomerian… Maybe partnered with a lovable mutt you can’t help but vote for despite his pedigree.

          • IceKitsune

            Peanut doesn’t seem like the type to care about such contests. Tarot even less so then him. Not impossible but unlikely.

      • Wolfsangel

        *inserts M night* “what a twist!~”

      • Trefoiler

        I wonder if she’s met Duke?

    • kimo

      I foresee Bino having some issue with this

  4. senorpie7

    Does anyone know what breed duchess is?
    Also.. what did you think king? Or brother

    • Zukio

      I believe that Duchess is a Saluki, though I might be wrong.

      • senorpie7

        She looks too dark. I could be wring as well, but the only saluki’s I’ve seen are lighter in Color. Hmmm :/

        • Zukio

          Wikipedia to the rescue! The one shown here has Duchesses colors: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saluki

          • senorpie7

            Wow! That’s spot on, fur and all! Great work detective Zukio!

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            plus, Rick confirmed her to be a Saluki in her first appearance.

        • King Sandwhich

          With this much detective work and the shadowy villain appearing in the last arc things could start to become like Inspector Gadget.

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            Full of self-destructing messages? Or perhaps some eat-before-reading ONI-level ones.

            Nah, I can’t see any of the Housepets getting that paranoid… though you never know…

  5. Zukio

    Oh dear, I can see the misunderstanding about to happen.

  6. Xane

    How would he even have papers? I guess Pete could have rewritten reality enough when he changed King to give him false parentage…

    • silverfang16

      I guess he could go get tested to have it proved….but I don’t see King doing that. : /

      • volkoseba

        You seem to have the wrong number of chromosomes for a dog…

        • silverfang16

          Well I would assume there are no human bits left. XD

          • volkoseba

            Pete does know how to be cruel…

    • senorpie7

      I can only assume all of these things have been taken care of when king became a part of the game. BUT! We do not even know if Pete will approve of king going to some sort of valentines day show thingummy *gasp, plot twist!!

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        Pete doesn’t give permission anymore, the wolves do.

        • Keldor

          “Hey, Miles, as your official “pet” or something, I need your permission to enter into this dog show. It’s a bit sleezy, and will probably lead to headaches down the road, but with your permission…”
          “Oh! Sure thing, King! I wouldn’t want to get in your way.”
          “Oh well, I understa– WHAT?!”

        • Frank

          Actually, it’s the Milton Trust Fund that owns him, and the ferrets are the ones that decide what to do there.

          • Tynach

            In that case, the ferrets may be rooting for him – even if to watch the fireworks that happen as a result!

          • Keldor

            Dog shows = much too boring for ferrets.

      • Nohbody

        Pete’s banished from the Babylon Gardens realm (for lack of a better word, off the top of my head) until he gets a willing volunteer to become his avatar. What he thinks is irrelevant, and would be even if he wasn’t in hot water for trying to steal Joel’s fate.

      • aed

        DO THE PLOT TWIST DANCE!!!!!!

    • Snowmon

      He had to get his shots somehow. I mean Pete may not have altered reality, but he certainly made sure that all the paperwork was there.

      • Crackles

        Even if he haven’t, it shouldn’t take more than a second to summon them out of thin air with snap of fingers.

      • Xane

        But you don’t need pedigree paperwork to get shots, you can bring any mutt in for their vaccines. Most “backyard breeder” dogs don’t have any kind of real AKC pedigree papers, even if they look exactly like the breed they supposedly are. It would take a good amount of forging and falsified parentage (preferably back 5 generations or more) to have purebred papers. But it doesn’t really sound like the Valentines contest needs the proof as much as Duchess only wants to go with a purebred stud dog.

        Overthinking it, as always. I just find it a little odd that Pete would have even bothered. Maybe he was planning on using King as a showdog just to torment him even more.

        • silverfang16

          Yeah, that sounds like Pete.

    • King Sandwhich

      Maybe Keene got him registered when he moved in with the wolves.

    • King Sandwhich

      He could of gotten registered under Keene’s program.

      • roguebfl

        Being registered is not the same thing as petagree papers. It the differance between a birth certificate and patients of nobility.

        • King Sandwhich

          Sorry I was playing loose with the terminology, but I still think what I was actually saying is a possibility.

  7. RootsofOrigin

    Someone will have to explain that one to me.

    • Snowmon

      Explain that to me too…

    • coyoteBR

      Duchess (a character that appeared only once or twice before) wants to enter a dog show but needs a partner; not any partner, but one that matches her colours and is cute enough. Looks like King fits this role, no matter his opinion about it.

      • RootsofOrigin

        I’m talking about the purebred joke.

        • Frank

          Dogshows usually require the entrants to be “certified purebreeds” (As opposed to mutts). This means that people who are experts on that breed certify they are close enough to the standards of the breed that their ancestry must all be in that breed, or, simply proving enough generations of ancestors of that dog were of the same breed.

          • snowmon89

            Then King’s out since he’s the first Corgi in his family.

      • Snowmon

        I was wondering about the Alt Text. I figure the Purebred joke was something like this:
        “Can I see your paperwork?”
        “My what (*thinking of his driver’s license and such)”
        “I would like to see your Purebred papers.”
        “Oh…”

        • roguebfl

          Could be worse, could be a German Shepard asking “Papers please”

        • Alucai Vivorvel

          You mean the infamous lines,
          “Driver’s license and registration, please”?

  8. IceKitsune

    Cool Right into the King Arc. This should be rater interesting. Nice to see Duchess again and Boris seems to live with her or is “employed” by her in some way.

  9. AuvaAkita

    Yes King Is Back!!! This is going to be very interesting!

  10. Zaitsev

    So are Boris and Yeltsin errand dogs or something? It seems like a waste of their capabilities.

    • silverfang16

      I prefer to think of them as “hired goons”.

      • Arwen

        Now that’s the spirit!

        • silverfang16

          Isn’t it cute?#^_^#

    • Crackles

      Bodyguards more likely. Just imagine a suit and sunglasses on them, it’s perfect.

    • Xane

      I’m surprised King hasn’t completely flipped out since the last time he saw Boris was when he was abusing King during the watch fiasco.

    • Zaitsev

      Also where did King get purebred papers?

      • silverfang16

        The ferrets forged them of course! It’s so obvious.

      • IceKitsune

        Most likely either made up by the Ferrets or Pete made them magically when he had King

      • Keldor

        “Oh, I don’t have any.”
        “How could such a lovely corgi as yourself not be purebred??”
        “Uh, err, well, they got lost?”
        “What do you mean they ‘got lost’? Those papers are the most important thing in your life! Without those, you’re nothing more than a common–”
        “Hey, King, look what I found!”
        “Where on earth did you find– I mean, thanks, Fox, I’ve been looking all over for th– my registered name is WHAT??

        • silverfang16

          Well it can’t be worse than Princess Periwinkle. : /

          • AuvaAkita

            Joel Zechariah Robinson?

          • silverfang16

            See? That’s much better!

          • AuvaAkita

            That’s Kings Human name though, and i’m sure the whole town knows it by now, unless they completely forgot about the mystery of the disappearing dog-napper…

          • Keldor

            “It’s weird, though, your registered name is the exact same as the name of that guy that kidnapped me a while back. Odd, huh?”

          • Zaitsev

            “Ya know, its funny… This is the second time his name has come up on something of yours”

          • Keldor

            “Eh-heheh, that is so– hey, look! That cloud is shaped exactly like a- um- school bus!”

          • AuvaAkita

            And now is the time when Fox realizes that King is trying to hide something :p

          • Keldor

            “No, really, King, something isn’t right here, unless… King, was Joel originally your owner?”

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            …Time for “All the King’s Men, part 2″

          • Dissension

            That’s already been published in the second Housepets! book. The winner of the “Finish Al the King’s Men” contest was Two_Twig.

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            Oh, I see. More incentive to buy the book, huh?
            As if I need any more, but unless Rick accepts mail-in cash orders…

        • Argent Stonecutter

          “Ludwig Otto Friedrich Wilhelm II”

          “I see why you went with King”

    • SilverZeo

      I kind wonder what their owner(s) are like. Strict military man, a sultry she-spy, a small person, or maybe they’re only the pets in the neighborhood that have a kid owner.

      • Frank

        Dutchess? Probably the kind of owner who spends 90% of their time in a beauty salon

  11. silverfang16

    Time for new King avatars already? :D

    • AuvaAkita

      Yes, but amazingly someone else has beat me to it :p

      • silverfang16

        There will be plenty more! Have to wait for just the right one after all.

  12. Camtheman16

    Hmmm I need someone that complimets my cuteness….
    *Goes to king*
    xD

    • The face

      But, wait. What does he think Boris wanted? And also, alt text?

      • Camtheman16

        “I was thinking two things and neither of them were…Yes sir I have papers I will be right back.”

        • Keldor

          But what were those two things?

          • Kitch

            In Soviet Russia, the authorities could demand your ID papers at any time. You always had to have them on you. Since Boris is Russian, King probably imagined that when he saw a big, hulking Russian dog looming behind him.

          • Dissension

            Yay, someone who gets it! *hugs Kitch* = P

  13. Nick (From Radio Free Housepets!)

    King for a King for a King.

    it all makes sense now…

    • senorpie7

      Your a wizard Harry!!!
      Also on a less relevant note: Moar Boris!

      • Arwen

        No, you’re a lizard Harry!

        • Frank

          A lizard in a fursuit. Try to get that image out of your head.

          Hey, Awren got it in mine!

    • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

      King-ception!

      On a more relevant note: “Oh Dog” indeed. =)

      • McFly

        I had a feeling someone was gunna say that. :p

  14. Keldor

    King is *NOT* going to like where this is going…

    King is going to have another headache when he finds out that he does in fact have purebred papers magically detailing his doggy ancestory… XD

    • silverfang16

      Oh yeah good point! I Hadn’t even thought of that but it will state his “lineage”. O_O

      • Keldor

        He’ll have an even bigger headache when he meets them in person… :-D

    • 1boredcanadian

      That does make me think, for him to be owned or whatever the correct term is by the Miltons would there not have been magical papers filled out by one of our cosmic D&D players?

      • Keldor

        SNRK… You mean “character sheets”?

  15. Crackles

    Umm, what exactly King was thinking instead of purebred papers?

    • Zukio

      I think it was identification papers, like proof of identification and residence. Though you usually are not asked about that on the street.

      • Zaitsev

        Well considering he needed an animal group without background checks he probably has gotten arrested.

        • Dissension

          In Soviet Russia… = P

          • Zaitsev

            Papers serve you?
            I don’t really see a Soviet joke there.

          • Dissension

            No, in the Soviet Union (and other communist countries and dictatorships), everyone was required to carry identification documents and authorization to be in specific areas. You would not want to be approached by a secret policeman and asked for your papers if you didn’t have them in order.

      • Frank

        “Registration and license, please”?

    • xhunterko

      Or good ol’ dog club cards.

    • Ada

      You’re all missing the obvious dog joke.
      Newspapers.

    • Frank

      Well, if he was about to be put on trial when Pete found him, I’m pretty sure he “got served papers”

  16. Zaitsev

    And I’m impressed he’s gone straight into another arc, not even a strip for downtime.

    • Zukio

      Rick is awesome like that. Also he did say that he would start this one up around Valentines.

    • Crackles

      I must be the only one who thinks couple one-offs would been good after so long arc.

    • Frank

      What about the Valentines day cards? They were tagged “one-off”

  17. Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

    Yay! It’s Duchess! xD *squee*

    • Frank

      One does not squee while wearing dark glasses. One just… doesn’t

      • Gary (from Radio free Housepets)

        I don’t care. =p

        • avorin

          (starts up beat)
          i wear my sunglasses and sqee.
          so i can.
          so i can.
          keep my head from going all splodey.

      • Kitch

        Peanut would.

        • Frank

          good point

        • Gary (from Radio free Housepets)

          Thank you Kitch! =D

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Of one can squee while wearing tribal gear, one can squee in sunglasses.

        • Gary (from Radio free Housepets)

          I second that! =D

          (Mods, please leave this here.)

  18. AuvaAkita

    Interesting plot twist that came into my mind! I know it’s kinda “out there” but what if Bailey shows up at this Valentines Party?

    • Zukio

      This is what I think will happen too.

      • 1boredcanadian

        I will agree with this train of thought.

        • Camtheman16

          How many are allowed on this train? I hope we don’t crash…

      • King Sandwhich

        I hope there will be survivors.

        • avorin

          yes but where do you bury them. :)

          • AuvaAkita

            How about in the memory bank?

          • Keldor

            I thought the general practice was to avoid burying survivors?

    • Lutryon

      Personally, I always worry about making guesses like that on a forum or comment board an author can read. I immediately assume they’ll read it, be all “They found me out!” and then change their plans to prove me wrong. >.<

      • Zukio

        I like being surprised, so if that does happen then all the better!

  19. xhunterko

    Pretty sure King is taken.

    • SilverZeo

      By girl in country whom he has no real way of contacting to save him from bouncer dogs…

    • Xane

      Duchess is Sasha’s friend (or at least acquaintance) so he might do it as a favor to Sasha.

      • Keldor

        “Come to think about it, I’m not even sure if these papers are valid…”
        “They look pretty official to me, here, let me see them again.”
        Registered Name: Joel Zechariah Robinson
        “On second thought, I’m sure they’re just fine! Come on, Baroness, was it? I’ll come with you to that ball or show or whatever it was! I’ll take care of the papers, thanks, Fox!”

  20. 1boredcanadian

    Wait, to find the papers he has to find Keane…I wonder if he’s still in the zoo (or if I spelt his name right) and adorability, check.

  21. The Wolf Kin

    I wonder which two other things he was thinking of.

    Either way, King for valentines king! His cuteness shall not be denied!

    • Ryufire

      Or his awesomeness! :D

  22. SilverZeo

    Clearly THIS is what happens when a a dog is all show/work and no play…

  23. leaffly

    So a new player joins the game… Interesting…

    • Argent Stonecutter

      A new character? We’ve seen Boris and Duchess before.

      • King Sandwhich

        They could be becoming more major characters though.

      • Xane

        Only once, and as I recall half the comments were arguments over whether or not she was Sasha’s friend or just some random dog waiting in the grooming salon. I always figured they at least knew each other more than casually, seeing they were talking pretty frankly without arguing, and the “watching too much TV again” line.

      • leaffly

        more like over king. That kind of stuff… soo….

        • Argent Stonecutter

          You mean a new player in the U&U game? I don’t think there’s anything to suggest that.

  24. SilentWolfXIII

    Oh dear. I foresee a lot of laugh ahead and possibly a lot of pain. Whenever King gets involved with a situation, things tend to become complicated

  25. dibs

    i think my favorite part is Duchess in the last panel, it does a lot to help establish her character. nice use of props, Rick

    • Frank

      Now I’m thinking of Mr. Tumnus

  26. sirbacon

    So if Duchess marries King, will she have to change her name to Queen? If not, would she anyways?

    • Crackles

      Nah, King changes his name to Duke. No wait a second..

  27. Lutryon

    YAY Duchess!
    I love when a seemingly irrelevant character is suddenly given a sizable role ^_^

    Though, I feel bad for some other characters lost in the shuffle. Like, I haven’t seen Daisy in AGES…or for that matter, Tiger & Marvin (at least not in any notable role). Or most of the ferrets, either…I mean we really just see Keene and occasionally Rock.

    • Xane

      I always wonder about this whenever a character has a real name in the tags. On the other hand I’m sure Rick is sick of having to go back and re-tag things if he decides later on to re-use a character (i.e. Lester), so I figure he probably tries his hardest to tag in ways that he won’t have to do that.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Yep, I want more Lana.

      • Frank

        With her special guest, Peanut Butter And Grape Jelly Sandwich

    • King Sandwhich

      I think a lot of dogs could be tied into this arc though.

  28. TLV

    ……. Really? Am I going to be the one that points out that Duchess looks like she has actual BREASTS?

    • Nohbody

      Even dogs have pectorals, you know. The markings might suggest human style mammaries (a term which is, for some reason, not in Firefox’s spellchecker, even if it’s not that uncommon a word… :P ), but there’s nothing abnormal about her upper body physiology compared to how other dogs in the HP! universe are drawn.

    • Ada

      I found it a little odd in her first comic, to be honest, but:
      A. I got used to it easy enough. It even seems to fit Duchess. She’s sort of elegant. I mean, her markings do look a little like an evening dress.
      B. With all my cat calls (No wordplay intended.) for ‘Super Peanut’ I’m hardly in a position to say I don’t appreciate Housepets! physiques. Boris isn’t bad either.

    • Keldor

      It’s also amusing the way her white stripe makes it look like she’s wearing a low cut dress. XD

    • Foxstar

      No, you didn’t need to be the one, thanks.

    • King Sandwhich

      I think that that’s pretty similar to the Saluki fur patterns though.

    • Dragonking

      I don’t think those are meant to be actual breasts, just her breast bone. Just looking at how the breed seems to look according to wiki they have thin waists with a large ribcage that makes their chest bulge outwards.

  29. ZunaUmbreon

    *whipers hir maw* Sorry, so much mouth watering adorability fomr her!

    • ZunaUmbreon

      Wipes*

  30. Kitch

    “Jeez, not this muscle-headed lunk again…”

  31. Kitch

    King doesn’t have papers. One would think she’d be a natural match for Mr.-Dropped-a-Boat-on-Him Terrance.

    • Noir The Sable

      Because they’re both British? :P

  32. gaboris

    Low cut fur… OKAY now I’ve seen everything. :P
    Also heh DOG Nukem is back. Seems like he has no bubblegum. XD

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Can’t be Dog Nukem, he actually showed up in a timely fashion.

      • Nohbody

        Ouch, man… That was cold.

        :D

  33. GameCobra

    Sweet! A Valentine’s arc! And couples being voted as King/Queen like a Prom? Even better.

    I wonder if this is strictly dogs? Can Cats join? I bet last year Sasha won, but with who is probably a humorous topic. like to hear the mixed story behind it.

    • Crackles

      I don’t think we see any cats in this arc. It’s King’s and the whole event is probably good old dog’s club thing anyway.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      If Sasha won it’d probably be with Bino, doubt Fido goes to something like that.

  34. WingedwolfGirl

    I don’t get it; unless King thought he meant Driver’s License and Birth certificate.

    • Kitch

      I’d point you to the comic Li’l Nyet, but its creator rage-quit the Internet because they weren’t getting enough donations.

  35. Jesse James

    Duchess sure found her nobility. =P

  36. Grip the Wolf

    I sense a hilarious arc coming…. but then again, all of the arcs in this comic are hilarious!

  37. Arwen

    Wow. We haven’t seen Duchess for a long time.

    Poor King. He’s probably going to be forced to love her even though his true love is Bailey.

  38. Noir The Sable

    Pete magicked him up a pedigree?

    I’m actually kinda saddened — generally, pedigree papers dictate a dog’s (or horse’s or what have you) lineage back several generations in case purebred status needs to be proven. If Pete made one and it was genuine enough to pass when followed up on, he’s pretty much gone “Here! There’s your new mom, new dad, and all your new grandparents. Enjoy your new family.”

    • Frank

      Or it could simply say he matches the standards of the breed. That’s allowed since it’s theoretically possible to, so to speak, create the breed again.

    • Xane

      Yeah, that’s kind of how I felt but I figure they’re just forged and Pete rewrote enough of reality that it checks out in a database. As mentioned above, maybe he was planning on running King through the dog show circuit just to be torture him like the Sears Photo Center strip.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      “Let’s see… parents died in a terrible polo accident at Cirencester Park… no brothers or sisters… only known cousin lost mountain-climbing in Nepal…”

  39. Dan

    Dang, King just can’t get a brake with the women. King is not going to enjoy this either way.

    Also, I seriously believe it’s about time for Rick to update his cast, seriously there are so many that have only been introduced once or twice and made it into the cast (like Rufus and the barn cats) while others have yet to be itroduced (such as Baily, Dutchess, Butch, Res, among others).

    Plz update cast Rick

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Give it away, some characters don’t have enough personality to be listed yet.

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        *give it a while

  40. sonic id furreh!!!

    ai dun get it… what was King thinking of?

  41. Ebon Sensei

    I’m guessing they are russian. IN RUSSIA, BORRIS FINDS YOU!

  42. wolfoxx

    I want Boris to say: “I AM INVINCIBOL!”

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      I think he avoids that line, last dude named Boris who said that took a liquid nitrogen bath.

  43. The_Peanut

    I do not foresee Peanut or Grape snuggling in this chapter…. there for I will not be happy. -slams fist down on desk- BLASPHEMY

    • The_Peanut

      Blasphemy Indeed

      • Arwen

        WOO! Lets start a riot!

        • The_Peanut

          Lets start a riot,

          • Mat'Ra

            If you feel so empty..

          • Dissension

            Let’s talk about the comic, instead. ;3

    • Crackles

      BLASPHEMY! :D

      • The_Peanut

        Revolution time, everyone flash mob Rick until we get PeanutxGrape

        • IceKitsune

          How about no. How about we let Rick write the comic the way he wants and hope that is the direction he wants to take it.

          • Elwood Blutarsky

            It’s funnier that way. This comic’s not about shipping, it’s about super funny misadventures from animals who act like kids. Rick always writes something more interesting than what the fans could think up anyway (see this, Duchess wants King around? Who’d think of that but him).

        • Foxstar

          Do you want to keep your commenting rights, The_Peanut?

  44. RegularBird

    Ooh this seems like its gonna be an interesting arc :D

  45. Mat'Ra

    That dude has a nuclear warning for his tag, I like him :D

  46. VariedCookies

    Her paws are brown in the second panel, and white in the third…

    THE WORLD DOESN’T MAKE SENSE ANY MORE

    • Zukio

      Wow your right. I think Rick will fix it soon though, the world will make sense again soon.

      • Zukio

        And there we go, all is right in the world.

  47. Kitch

    Here’s a good question: Why does Boris call Duchess “mistress”?

    • Zukio

      Most likely she is rich, so he is calling her that due to her social status.

      • IceKitsune

        That and most likely he either lives with her or is employed by her as a body guard at the moment.

  48. Z24

    So much switched phrases! :D

  49. Z24

    Why the parasol if there’s no sun/rain?

    • IceKitsune

      She is Rich and Fancy, Rich and Fancy females always have parasols its just a thing.

    • Keldor

      That winter sun can be brutal!

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        It actually can be, I know a guy who got sunburned once while skiing because of the reflection off the pure white snow.

  50. Icalasari

    …That’s quite a coat pattern…

    Made me do a double take several times to make sure it was only a pattern

  51. Elwood Blutarsky

    With all this papers talk one wonders what King’s real parents would say if they could see their boy now.

  52. TBH

    Over the years, the Royal Family seem to have embraced dogs as their favoured pets. Formal portraits from the 17th century onwards show kings, queens and their children happily posing with their beloved animals, from pugs to greyhounds,

    King Charles Spaniels to Corgis.

    Oh.

  53. tahrey

    just noticed two things about dutchess…

    1. her tag is a £ sign :D
    2. she’s using a parasol… in winter.

    • Keldor

      “I am King, and I DO NOT approve this message. Ever.”

    • phosphorus

      Please do not reference anything crude. I am not a administrator but I do respect ricks rules and will enforce them at the best of my ability

  54. Draven

    And King continues to casualy build his snowdog.

    • Sansash

      King making a snowdog = cuteness.

  55. Haru Totets

    I’m getting a bad vibe from Duchess…my Pinkie Pie senses are going all crazy…my tail is a twitching!

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      You may want to get that checked out, I am not a doctor nor do I play one on TV but I don’t think humans are supposed to have tails.

  56. Tailz

    I wonder if Rick will create an arc. when everyone discovers King is really a human.

    • IceKitsune

      I’m sure an Arc where at least some of the Pets (outside of Sabrina and Tarot) find out he used to be human, Fox is most likely going to find out first before anyone else.

      • tahrey

        It probably depends on whether the charm that Pete cast extends to them or not … I can’t remember now if it got broken, either. perhaps he CAN now talk about it, but has gotten so used to not doing so that he won’t without some kind of extreme provocation.

  57. Duez

    Huh, a very interesting body design for Duchess! Interesting portrayal for the chest, I kinda like it! Looking forward to where this arc goes! :3
    Also, despite reading the comments, I think I still kinda missed the reference in papers, ah well. X3

  58. Tattorack

    Nice casual dress fur effect on duchess!

  59. phosphorus

    I dont get it would you kindly show me the humor of this slide

  60. OperatorPony

    Oh God Duchess is so hot!

    • tahrey

      this surely is a bit wrong :D :D

  61. Argent Stonecutter

    Minor nit: He really should be saying something like “pedigree papers”. Calling them “purebred” papers sounds really clumsy.

    • tahrey

      he’s russian, though… give him a bit of linguistic leeway :)

  62. Kohaku Nightfang

    I don’t think Bailey will appreciate this much :p

  63. Firewolf

    Oh wow, that is a CLEVER fur pattern, it looks like a shmancy dress with the over extended v-neck. You even gave her a bit of….yeah, clever X3

  64. Firewolf

    Oh! And is “Oh DOG” like “Oh GOD” clever wordplay? X3

  65. Sansash

    So that means she thinks King is mouth-frothingly adorable then
    Also in the last panel she looks like she’s wearing sunglasses
    …and a tie
