    King no matter what the circumstances make Bailey proud! :P

  2. cheetahwolf

    bathtime!!!!

    • senorpie7

      More like drowning!

      • Snowmon

        For some Pets its the same thing… My little Pughound certainly acts like it.

      • King Sandwhich

        I have ferret who acts like that. The other ferret just acts like it’s a giant drinking bowl.

        • Alucai Vivorvel

          Ferrets are so darn cute. But I hear they smell. Like, really bad. Is this true? Or will I have to get a ferret of my own someday to find out?

          • The_Peanut

            They only smell if you dont clean up after them and bathe them regularly.

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            What is “regularly”?

          • Aerion Snowpaw

            A quick googling later: No more than once a month, exact frequency up to you. And by ‘no more than once a month’, they mean that you can cause health-problems if you dry their fur out of oil by bathing them too much, so you should stay well under that.

          • LordWorpeltinger

            I”ve had to bathe mine 8 times a month… mainly because they keep figuring out how to get in the cooking oil. I’ve used a little baby lotion to counteract the damage by bathing that often.

          • King Sandwhich

            Ferrets have there scent pouches removed before being sold now. I’m not sure how recently they started doing this. Now they do not smell.

    • cheetahwolf

      do u think Boris want to be with Duchess in the show?

      • Camtheman16

        Doubt it…His manliness and toughness completely overwhelms any cute duchess could muster…

        • Snowmon

          That doesn’t mean that boris doesn’t want to be with Duchess any less.

        • Keldor

          Funny to think that all three of them likely belong to the same dog class. I guess “working dogs” is fairly broad. :-P

          • Thoth

            Now, do you think that Psychic Dogs get a class of their own, or are they under “Non-Sporting”?

      • King Sandwhich

        He might have a secret crush on Dutchess but he doesn’t exactly seem like the show dog type.

    • King Sandwhich

      Some pets goal is to make the person giving the bath as wet as possible.

      • Keldor

        Well, if *they* have to be wet, you should too!

    • Z24

      Waterboaring session!

  3. Camtheman16

    By the way…You smell like apricots LETS GET STARTED

    • Camtheman16

      ^^Thats the alt text :P

    • IceKitsune

      Actually its misspelled its missing the D at the end.

      • Camtheman16

        Oh you beat me too it…I was going to clarify dont worry xD

    • Camtheman16

      Also like to mention, a typo in the alt so I just went ahead and added it xD (No D in started)

      • King Sandwhich

        I’m sure Rick will fix it.

        • Dissension

          It’s intentional.

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            Yeah, like, “LET’S GET STARTE-” *yanks King out the door*
            Or maybe saying it fast, where the caps are the rushed words, like it’s awkward to say King spells like apricots.

            Actually, now that I think about it, bubble baths (or at least scented baths) are virtually a necessity if the animals bathe themselves the same way humans do (not like real animals do). Who likes the smell of wet dog? Nobody, not even the dogs.

  4. Zukio

    That looks like a nice way to bathe. Also Apricots smell nice.

  5. rtlstien

    Bet he’s glad Pete didn’t turn him into a cat…

    • kimo

      APRICOTS!!!!!

      • volkoseba

        Cats can’t taste sweetness… cats can’t appreciate apricots.

        • Tattorack

          Not true!
          I got one cat who totally avoids anything sweet,
          and one who can’t get her paws of it.
          (proven a few times when giving yogurt left-overs and such to them)

          • King Sandwhich

            Actually Cats do like dairy products like yogurt or milk but not for the sweetness in them but for the other flavors. Some cats however do not like milk or dairy products. Science has in fact proven that cats can not taste sweet. The sweet things they do eat are for the other flavors.

        • Frank

          I always thought it was dogs that couldn’t taste sweetness

          • The_Peanut

            no dogs see in black and white, cats cant taste sweetness. and Peanut is gunna cry because not enough people watch house pets.

          • volkoseba

            Dogs do not see in black and white, their sight is like red/green color blindness in humans.

          • WolfBrother

            this is true. i have red/green color blindness and the eye doc says i see like my dogs do. most green things look red to me. or an off shade of brown if not red. regardless, its cats that can’t taste sweetness. yay for off topic conversations! XD haha and on that note, i cant wait to see the dog show =)

  6. Zuna

    Haha Nice xD Love her Expression in the final Scene x3

  7. Xane

    BUBBLE BATH FOR YOU!

    • AuvaAkita

      If King didn’t sign up for this, then i’m sure Boris would be getting a broom to the face right about now.

      • Keldor

        That’s already Grape’s trademark weapon! King would have to use something else. Maybe singe their fur off with caustic remarks?

        • Xane

          Corgis will nip your ankles. Sometimes hard enough to injure your Achilles tendon.

          • Keldor

            I can imagine that would be pretty awkwerd for an anthro corgi, i.e. Housepets style. They’d have to bend way ever to reach your ankles!

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            Um, you’re forgetting King’s shortness and Boris’ tallness.

          • Keldor

            King’s just the right height to give Boris a good bite in the buttocks. Ankles are much lower down, so short of biting Pete’s ankles when he’s is full gigantic supernatural creature mode, he’d still have to bend over.

  8. McFly

    King’s face in the 2nd panel is priceless.

    • Ryufire

      *Gasp* Fox Know’s my secret!!!

      • cheetahwolf

        i know i was first in the comment how is u above me? ;(

        • Ryufire

          Oh snap really? How did my comment get way up there? o.0

          • cheetahwolf

            u must have been a hare of a second faster, but waiting to post because i didnt see your name like 10 min after i check other comments.
            And Fox knows nothing so be quiet or he will.

          • Frank

            I’m guessing it had to await moderation

  9. IceKitsune

    Why in the world is Boris doing that anyway? I’m sure King can wash himself.

    • GameCobra

      size difference!

    • AuvaAkita

      No, he has to be washed a certain way of course!

    • Xane

      Efficiency! Or Boris and Yeltsin just like to abuse small animals. :D

      • IslaKariese

        Hah! I see what you did there! (Late nights and little sleep do make a girl almost miss the obvious jokes. Almost.)

        • Xane

          I’m kind of surprised we haven’t seen Yeltsin this time around. So far we haven’t seen the two of them apart. King might not survive being doghandled by both of them though. I wonder what breed they’re supposed to be, they’re huge even compared to Kevin and Ralph. Wolf-sized!

  10. IslaKariese

    Ignore them? Maybe. Deliberately twist them to fit your needs at the moment? Oh buck yes.

    • Kitch

      “We’re going to pervert them?” “Oh, maliciously!

      • Grip the Wolf

        NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIILLLL! What have I told you about misusing our people’s ancient secret techniques?

  11. Camtheman16

    I guess its a…Dog eat dog world out there. *Puts on Hard Hat*

    • Snowmon

      I’ve got the blast shield ready.

    • Camtheman16

      Good to know someones got my back ;)

    • Xane

      In this case, more of a dog-bathe-dog world.

      • Keldor

        Some dogs would consider that even worse.

        • The_Peanut

          some owners consider it a blessing

  12. Kitch

    It would’ve been funny if Boris had drowned King and had to give him Silvester method. Cartoon resuscitation is a lost art.

    • IslaKariese

      That just makes it all the sweeter and more nostalgic when someone does use it, or any other classic cartoon trope. Like, say, hanging in midair just long enough to realize you’re screwed before falling.

      • WolfBrother

        epic. just epic, im thinking back to Wile E. Coyote and his help me signs XD

  13. Locke Abram

    Too much pink

  14. Snowmon

    Boris, King is a Corgi not a piece of laundry! You have to put him in dryer on delicate.

    Kidding.

  15. Maengun1256

    Breath King, Breath lol

    • Zukio

      In panel two, I believe King’s thoughts are “Sweet Glorious Air!”

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Where’s the Panel 2 avatars?

        • AuvaAkita

          There is one person that has it, and it’s not me this time lol

  16. Randomextra

    That looks like a fun way to get a bubble bath.

    • Kitch

      Only if you consider inhaling soapy water and near-death experiences fun.

  17. Camtheman16

    Duchess…Your room, could repopulate the world with pink if it ever lost it…(Prolly due to Peanuts shenanigans)

    • Keldor

      That’s not her room, that’s just her bathroom. We can only imagine what her room looks like…!

      • AuvaAkita

        I think we can safely assume that everything is Pink in her world.

        • King Sandwhich

          An yet she wears a yellow collar. Strange.

          • Keldor

            Well, this is the bathroom, so she probably wouldn’t have that much say in how it’s decorated, since everyone in the house shares it. Unless…

            Maybe it’s Duchess’ owner that is obsessed with pink!

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            No, no, you have to say it like this:

            Strange, isn’t it?
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiEwmiPSmto&noredirect=1

        • The_Peanut

          everuthing in her wworld is pink, she has a little pink house with a pink little window and pink corvette and everythings pink to her. da da de da di do da da di do

  18. Tailz

    Seems like she’s not as mad anymore about King’s situation.

    P.S-I wonder, what did mile’s cubs ever do to King?

    • Camtheman16

      I think they buried him in the garden again…Why else would he need a bath! (Besides the smell)

    • Snowmon

      You mean besides nearly tearing him apart, burying him alive and beating him at every video game known to man and beast.

      • Tailz

        They did WHAT to my dog? I’m gonna teach them a lesson.(My dog happens to be named King too if you didn’t get it.)

        • Snowmon

          ……… ohhh…

        • Leinad

          your avvie disturbs me, Tailz. that is all.

    • Keldor

      Buried him in the garden, of course. Why do you think he needed a bath?

      • Camtheman16

        Beat you to it Keldor ;) or you know that, and you deliberately stole my line! xD

        • Snowmon

          Everyone else was thinking/saying it.

        • Zaitsev

          More like paraphrased it.

    • tiagoling

      I think they’re going to be more tempted to bite him now, as he smells like apricots. Or bury him deeper to dispel the smell.

  19. Kalasnokov

    wow everything is pink, even the water/bubbles.

  20. Zaitsev

    Boris seems surprised King needed to be let up for air.

    • Snowmon

      He was supposed to be on laundry duty.

    • Xane

      He just doesn’t get that King’s lungs are about 3x smaller than his own are!

      • Keldor

        Really? How on earth does King manage to be so loud then??

        • Zaitsev

          Maybe someone taught him how to Astral Project.

          • Zaitsev

            Maybe I’ll reply to everyone of your comments and start it with the word maybe.

          • Keldor

            Maybe you will.

            *brick’d*

        • King Sandwhich

          Boris voice could be louder than King for all we know. He never talks on panel practically.

          • Snowmon

            Or he sounds like “Alpha” from the movie “Up” and that’s why he’s not talking much.

          • King Sandwhich

            It would have to be natural though. Alpha’s voice chip was broken.

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            Yeah, when Alpha’s voice chip was fixed, he actually sounded intimidating.
            Until it got broken again.

          • Keldor

            We know he talks off panel. Something like “May I see your papers”, in what must be a thick, intimidating Russian accent.

        • Xane

          3x smaller, but the diaphragm is just as strong!

      • Kalasnokov

        think that even if his lungs are smaller, he too is of course smaller, and therefore his body dont need as mutch air to function. :)

    • Draven

      “Oh my, your a real dog? You’re so small I thought you were a stuffed toy.”

      • Frank

        Except that I can’t picture Boris saying “oh my”

        • Draven

          He would hold his tongue in front of a lady.

  21. Keldor

    Water in the ears must be really annoying when they’re as large as King’s are.

    • Zaitsev

      Wouldn’t that make it easier to dry them out?
      I don’t know about you but I can almost never fit a towel in my ear, I need special drills for that.

      • Keldor

        It’s always the inside part that gets water stuck. Farther than a tower or anything else can fit. The larger ear just serves to funnel it into the deep inner part.

        • Zaitsev

          Maybe corgis have telescopic tapering fingers just for that use in this universe.

          • King Sandwhich

            Or he could just twist the end of the towel. Other version more interesting though.

    • Valerio

      well, at least he’s got shorter fur and it’s easier to dry up

      • The_Peanut

        ITS PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME were they were they at were they at now make them make them snuggle snuggle PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME

        XD couldn’t resist. and I think its funny how duchess doesn’t need a bath but King does.

  22. GameCobra

    Isn’t it funny that i suddenly hear the “Eye of the Tiger” theme playing while King gets prepped up for the contest?

    • Zaitsev

      I hear that awful hip hop song because of the alt text.

      • coyoteBR

        Funny, I can hear “La vie en Rose”. At least, that’s King’s point of view, everything he sees is pink :D

    • Argent Stonecutter

      “We need a montage…”

  23. DaveedW

    It is the second time another dog bathes King.

    • Keldor

      I don’t think Fox spraying him with the hose counts. Though in that vein, you could almost count Miles leading him to the “restroom” at Theme Park World too, but it’d be a bit of a stretch.

      • DaveedW

        Let me rephrase that. It is the second time a dog cleans King.

        • King Sandwhich

          It is the second time a dog cleans King with water would be near perfect. If you stretch it and count the Miles thing it would be three. He has a knack for getting wet. Also I think a hose bath is kind of a thing.

        • Keldor

          A wolf’s a dog! Almost!

          • Frank

            If you had said “a dog’s a wolf”, by modern taxonomic standards, you wouldn’t have needed to add the “almost”

  24. leaffly

    Oh the horror of the pink bubbles!
    And what? I did not understand a single thing she said.

    • Ryufire

      At least he wont have that wet dog smell!

    • Frank

      In short, it’s a beauty cuteness pageant more than a personality contest

  25. Ryufire

    Just how deep was King buried anyway?

    • Valerio

      I don’t know, but Boris surely looked like he had to make an effort to drow–err, wash him.

    • King Sandwhich

      Maybe the wolves got him into something foul smelling.

      • The_Peanut

        I think zit was the catnip thing, that stuff is potent.

  26. thefirstonethere

    do i like where this is going? well i always do so i have big hopes

  27. Keldor

    Sounds like Duchess is familiar with the world of modeling. :-P

  28. Valerio

    OMG King Nakedness!!!
    Again an overawsome comic! And Duchess is almost…Italian in her thinking. ;)

    • volkoseba

      Towel. Your argument is semi-valid.

      • King Sandwhich

        Towel is in at one point. Not sure that counts as covered.

      • Keldor

        Towels only count if he’s actually *wearing* them, not sticking them in his ear, like in the third panel. Unless he’s going for a new earring style?

      • Zaitsev

        He doesn’t have his neck covered in that first full body panel.

        • volkoseba

          Partial nudity?

          • Zaitsev

            That would be an M rating if this were a video game, scandal!

          • volkoseba

            Not necessarily… Banjo Tooie had it.

    • GameCobra

      You’re going to explode from awesomeness one of these days @_@

      • Valerio

        true that.
        Do you have an idea how painful is to resurrect self?

        • Alucai Vivorvel

          What? You just open up a console and type “Resurrect,” not that hard. :P

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            Oops, my bad, I almost forgot the “player->” prefix!

    • AuvaAkita

      Indeed King is naked without his collar, but I don’t think he minds it when a girl is present, and she is paying him also, so that’s a plus!

      • Keldor

        My goodness, listen to what you’re saying! XD

        • AuvaAkita

          You’re right, what am i thinking? I should be saving this for when King is with Bailey!

        • Maengun1256

          Hmm, he’s Naked, she’s paying him. O.o okay PG rated lol

          • AuvaAkita

            I am walking on thin ice here XD

          • SilentWolfXIII

            Life on the edge, nice ; )

          • MCWildcat

            dont forget, in panel’s 1 and 2, it looks like she’s naked too :P she has no collar on in those 2

          • AuvaAkita

            Yeah, but that doesn’t count cuz King is getting bathed/drowned at the time. I think he would be more focused on surviving Boris’ bath-time wrath.

      • Zaitsev

        The double meanings there are uncountable…

      • Xane

        He seems to have gotten over his initial nekkidness issues. Remember, King was also the first one to get “naked” at the 4th of July party :lol:

        • AuvaAkita

          Well that time was different, he was drunk on orange soda at the time. Now he can fully comprehend what is going on.

    • Ryufire

      Yes he is naked! o.o

  29. King Sandwhich

    Dutchess seems to like to go on and on about her beliefs. Also King seems to be less bitter than he used to be. Their personalities clash quite well.

    • Keldor

      King’s finally found someone as cynical as himself.

      • Valerio

        King sees in her what he used to be.
        And he doesn’t like it.

    • Ryufire

      Do you think Duchess might give King her number once the show is over? “Give me a call sometime King, I wont bite”

      • tiagoling

        I suggest that the quote ended with: “I won’t bite…. much”

        • Valerio

          she won’t bite him of course.
          She’s abrasive

          • Keldor

            As abrasive as a cat’s tounge?

      • Frank

        Her bark is worse than her bite?

  30. SilentWolfXIII

    Is THAT how to get a pet to willingly take a bath? Have it once be human, get transformed into an animal, have a magical creature for an owner, get raised by wolves, then finally enter him into a talent show? Huh, who would’ve thought?

    • Frank

      Now, now. I think it’s enough to have another dog twice his size throw him in

  31. Ehrsdreco

    His collar is ‘bio-hazard’?

    • Dissension

      No, it’s the symbol for radiation.

      • Ehrsdreco

        Oy! Same difference. Eh?

    • Valerio

      It’s Yeltsin who bears the BH tag

  32. Valerio

    the worst thing will be if someone in the jury will suggest a new breed out of this cutest couple…

    • Alucai Vivorvel

      I suspect they’d get mauled.
      Or the intimidating presence of Boris (where’s Yeltsin?) would make them think twice about what they say.

  33. Icalasari

    Cuteness is one of the criteria?

    Oh god King is going to win for certain

    • Frank

      Unless he does something terribly un-cute, like yell what he just asked Duchess to the judge

  34. Lionbone

    What bred of dog is Boris?

    • Draven

      1/2 Great Dane, 1/2 bear.

      • Valerio

        And ALL mayhem!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I thought Boris and Yeltsin were Dobies.

      • Keldor

        Wrong coloration. All color varients of dobermans have the tan chest spots and points, like Duchess, but without the white. It’s a bit less visible when they’re not black, but still clear enough.

        In any case, he’s too big to be a dobie.

        Maybe some sort of great dane/ wolf hybrid? Boris and Yeltson are somewhat unusual for giant dogs in that they don’t have big, sloppy, houndlike mouths or coarse, rough/curley fur.

        • Rick Griffin

          But I don’t draw sloppy dogmouths in this comic, so I don’t think you’ve be able to tell from that.

          • Lionbone

            Rex

          • Zaitsev

            Rex doesn’t drool all over the place like a lot of bigger breeds do.

  35. Profesor Rod

    And Housepets! becomes a little deep again~

    • AuvaAkita

      The deeper, the better!

      • Alucai Vivorvel

        But not so deep, that you drown. I don’t think King could handle that deep!

        • Zaitsev

          He could, Boris would hold him down.

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            Oh, sure, but a dog needs to breathe, doesn’t he?

        But the higher, the fewer!

  36. Anthromorphic Personification

    I know this may seem like a cheesy quote, and don’t get me wrong Britain is founded on fish, chips, tea and embaressing-cheesieness, but (sorta) in the words of Duke Nukem “Hail to the King, Dutchess!”

    Boris why must you try and drown the small corgi? I said BATH! Actually that is most common way she creates followers, I mean there no way she get’s by on her morals alone. (because she has doesn’t have any) No, Boris I didn’t mean it, nooooo!

    I can’t decide what Boris is thinking in the 2nd panel, he is ether wrestling with an idea or thinking its inconvenient that King needs to come up for air

    • Z24

      Maybe checking if he finally stopped smelling like a dog…

      • Camtheman16

        I like to think of Boris as a tactical guy, who’s paid to “do” things rather then think them out…

    • Legendario13

      He is laughing on his mind because of kings reaction.

      • rallyjr

        Boris laughing?… i think that would be a bit unsettling

        • legendario13

          on his mind only man…. but yes even like that, is not normal

    If you manage to feign personality you got it!
    (Don’t forget to blow a kiss to the judges, BTW)

    When I looked at the alt text, it went right to the edge of the screen… tricked myself.

  41. Grip the Wolf

    It’s funny cause it’s true.

  42. Wyrd

    Loving the Homestar reference in the alt text.

  43. Firewolf

    Oh I cannot WAIT to see what antics Rick has in store for the show!

  44. Jesse James

    Duchess sure plays to win. =P

  45. ~Fluttershy~

    Where was her collar in the first two panels?

    • Dissension

      Duchess is clearly using a hair dryer in those panels. One could assume she would not get dressed till dry.

      • ~Fluttershy~

        Oh. OK.

        • Tailz

          Oh hey fluttershy, didn’t expect to see you. You uh, notice something about my avatar?

    Finally got caught up with this comic, now have to get used waiting for the arc to end. And didn’t really understand Duchess there at the end.
