  1. Ryufire

    Who’s this?

    • King Sandwhich

      You mean who are “Collie” and “Karo” they were just introduced.

      • The face

        Definately new… it does look like those dances. Gaaaa were they horrid!

        • Ryufire

          Hope King can make it out alive! >.>

          • maskedfur189

            its king. he will survive or die trying

          • Alucai Vivorvel

            Um. Yeah, that’s usually how it works.

  2. Xane

    Oops, almost let the dog out of the bag there again!

  3. King Sandwhich

    The world of dog shows is exposed.

    • rallyjr

      so far it’s like looking at “the popular kids”

  4. Musclecar326

    Ha ha. It sucks to be you king. Also that other male dog is buffer than Miles.

    • Harlequinhatter

      Not buffer, just more ripped and toned.
      There is a difference, and actually, it’s more healthy not to be cut like that.

      • ~Fluttershy~

        Your avatar is absolutely horrifying.

        • The face

          Agreed. It is creepy…

    • Valerio

      King commands supreme cuteness!

    • WolfBrother

      not necessarily Harlequinhatter. i have cuts like that but its just because of my frame. and i dont weight train, i get all my mass and tone from doing calisthenics (lifting only my own body weight) monday, wednesday, friday. and doing mild cardi on tuesday, thursday, saturday. that way i have sundays off and i keep a healthy BMI but i also get really ripped =3. well that’s my two cents….i think King looks great with Duchess if i do say so myself =)

    • Argent Stonecutter

      [insert gripe about how you wouldn't see that muscle definition anyway BECAUSE HE'S COVERED IN FUR]

      [insert counter gripe about how he's a cartoon character]

      [insert smug question about why you care if he's buff then]

    • mr.muchy

      Its king we all know he will win :)

  5. cheetahwolf

    I betting King wont be the cutest.

    • rallyjr

      *gasp* how can you even say that?

      • cheetahwolf

        All I’m saying is we r use to King cuteness
        like u say awwwwwwwwww!!!
        A new cute dog might be like awwwwwwwwwww!!!
        A (w) and, (!) more.

        • Valerio

          I can concede you only this:
          Enter Peanut and Grape, they jury goes DAWWWW and they win.

          • anon_omis

            It’s a DOG show

    • Ryufire

      He has to be cute! He MUST! >u<

    • Valerio


      • Zaitsev

        Anyone else hear the witcher 2 enemies say that?

    • Zaitsev

      I’m really late

    • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

      Oh my…

    • coyoteBR

      Well, there’s a chance Daisy is in this show, so… yep, there goes King’s title of cuteness

      • Tommyrazor

        Hmm you have a valid point there.

      • anon_omis

        God when was the last time we saw Daisy?

      • mr.muchy

        I think King is cuter then daisy…….. but it would have been awesome if bailey showed up in this!!

    • Crackles

      He and Duchess seems to be outclassed a bit. At least for me they look a lot more bland and less elegant in comparison.

      • AthiosDvK

        But like Duchess said, “shallow judges”.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      What’s cuter for pure breed dogs than a corgi? A chihuahua?

      • volkoseba

        Chihuahuas do not come close to corgis… there could be another corgi though.

      • silverfang16

        Chihuahua? Ick, no way.

        • slash0mega

          a long hair chihuahua

          my mom got one yesterday, and it is adorable.

          otherwise, I agree with you guys

          • silverfang16

            I have nothing against them personally, I just don’t like tiny dogs. : /

      • RegularBird

        Aaaand, suddenly Tarot and Peanut arrive.

      • Haeresius

        I vote for Bishon Bolognese. They have secret powers to increase their own cuteness to infinity.

    • Aenbr

      Someone’s going to have problems in purgatory…

  6. Nick (From Radio Free Housepets!)

    King’s thin collar reminds me of those thin ties!

    • Nick (From Radio Free Housepets!)
    • Argent Stonecutter

      He’s wearing a collar but no tag! Isn’t that, like, semi-naked?

      • Zaitsev

        I think the theme tags was a Babylon Gardens trend, also I don’t see a collar on Colleen. So THATS how she plans to win…

        • Rererak

          No no it’s just hidden underneath the fur. Or it IS the fur and she’s secretly lost all the fur that should be there! Dun dun dun.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Not all animals in Babylon Gardens have theme tags, or even collars, but they all have tags of some kind… even the wolves.

          • WolfBrother

            yeah, if i remember correctly the tags were just to show that the wolves weren’t feral anymore. hence why they only had them attached to thin chords.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            The tags are the reason for the collars, remember how Grape reacted when Earl took hers off at the gas station.

  7. IceKitsune

    Everyone is going to be like those two aren’t they?

    • Xane

      Makes you wonder what Westminster in Housepets is like.

      • Keldor

        Oh, it’s just like the Oscars. Bad acting, poor jokes, tacky collars, and way too much anise consumed by the stars.

        • The face

          Yes, only with more snotty-news. Dogs can get much more spoilt than regular people, they don’t need to move out.

          • The face

            Snotty-ness I meant. Curse you, auto spell.

          • Keldor

            The stars at the Oscars are hardly “regular people”, and in general are quite full of snotty-ness. They’re quite spoiled too, after all. XD

  8. Zukio

    Now I’m wondering how they will act in front of the ’shallow’ judges.

  9. DaveedW

    Not the first Collie named Colleen I know, but it is a nice name.
    This contest may be ruthless, but I still be cheering for King!

  10. Wanderer

    Oh King! X3

  11. King Sandwhich

    Colleen is smiling with her reply of “yeah” like insulting King gives her pleasure. Dutchess strangely neutral. Perhaps Colleen is even worse than Dutchess.

    • Keldor

      She should be careful. King is more than capable of retaliating in the snide remarks catagory.

      • silverfang16

        I don’t know…these are dogs that do it for sport.

  12. Kalasnokov

    of course, a rival to Duchess appears.
    what a twist!

    • Valerio

      and here I thought Duchess was the top snot!

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        How would she even hold a gun with those paws of…OH! You said top snot.

        There’s always a bigger fish in the pond and perhaps we’ve just realized that.

        • WolfBrother

          haha i thot V said Top Shot too XD but i think it may be possible for the characters to hold and fire a gun, depending on how large the trigger guard is…

  13. Thoth

    Oh well. Now when will Grape and Maxwell crash the show? Surely there will be at least ONE cat-at-the-dog-show joke…

    • GameCobra

      *Crosses fingers*

      *Crosses fingers they don’t ruin anything on anyone though, just outshow them* =3

      • Valerio

        Hi I’m daisy!

    • IceKitsune

      It would be funny if they have like at least one cat judge or something like that.

      • IceKitsune

        Never mind they said the judges will be human (or at least implied it)

        • Valerio

          the judges are human puppets and their masters are the bigglesworth!

    • rakaydos

      I’m predicting Joey somewhere in this arc… The dog in cats clothing, back in dogs clothing again.

  14. JSkunk

    Well I nevah.

  15. Ryufire

    I can picture Colleen’s voice like Angelina Jolie!

    • coyoteBR

      Works, too. I was imagining the most affected, posh-iest accent to Colleen

  16. SilverZeo

    A collie named Colleen….

    • WingedwolfGirl

      Is like a mouse named Mickey only more suave,

      • SilverZeo

        Yeah… as suave as naming your son Clark if your last name is Kent, or Bruce if your a Wayne…

        • WolfBrother

          little fun fact. Walt Disney originally wanted to name Mickey Mouse Mortimer. ;P what a silly name for a mouse…that probably why he was overruled >_>

        • silverfang16

          There is a Mortimer though…. -_-

          • WolfBrother

            really? im not familiar with a Mortimer mouse…or maybe im just having a brain fart. either way i thot it was just a little strange that Disney wanted to name Mickey Mortimer instead.

          • silverfang16

            Yeah he is suppose to be Mickey’s rival although I have only seen him in like…..2 cartoons. I like Mickey as a name better anyway, Disney made a good choice.

          • WolfBrother

            cool, haha i guess you do learn something new every day =) and i agree, Mickey is a better name

  17. Valerio

    Hope someone’s here is a Road Rovers fan…

    • IceKitsune

      I love that show.

    • Xane

      Don’t be weird boy!

      • Rennis

        So long as he does not say he wants to bite tushes! xD

        • SilverZeo

          Or has desires to have those MINT milkshakes they’re having at MickeyDs…

    • Ryufire

      Sixteen Candles movie was good too! :)

    • WingedwolfGirl

      *Raises Paw?*

      Sure, don’t know how it relates to today’s comic though.

      • Valerio

        hoping Rick had picked the girl’s name out of that show. D’uh!

    • Baxtrr

      Have it on videotape, except for the original broadcast of “A Day In The Life” with the fabulous Russian Name Rap that got cut out for the reruns. *sigh*

    • officialLASERINSTINCT


      • SilverZeo

        They have the episodes on iTunes now? Actual videos, not recordings?

    • SilverZeo

      Or fan of the first season of Dog City…

  18. Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

    A high school dance huh…

    • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

      It kinda takes me back….wait, nope.

      • Tailz

        It couldn’t have been that bad, mine wasn’t as ba… Oh wait there was that noodle incident.

        • WolfBrother

          mine was a ravioli incident but i get where ur coming from =)

          • Valerio

            we italians are lucky.
            We hold no such tradition

          • WolfBrother

            indeed you are =P

  19. Smallfoot

    Yet another unexpected plot twist!

  20. black fox

    Lol poor king he’s being judge by spolde dogs

  21. falcon01

    I say….let the judges be ferrets!

    • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

      Wait! We’re missing one of them!

    • Keldor

      So that explains all the gaudy, sparkly outfits you see at these places. They know what the judges are really interested in!

  22. Zaitsev

    The combined smug in that third panel overpowers every single strip with Max in it.

    • Keldor

      Max’s smugs are much cuter.

      • Xane

        Yeah, I think it’s funny none of these show dogs look nearly as cute as King or Max (who is way too adorable for his own good). Duchess and Colleen look overgroomed and the border collie is cute but looks a bit too “bodybuilder” for a dog that’s supposed to be lean and athletic.

        • WolfBrother

          eh, i SORT OF agree. meaning that he does look lean and athletic– at least to me– but a little bit too ripped to be at a dog show. again just my opinion, but you know what they say about opinions….

    • silverfang16

      Yeah this reminds me too much of High School to be cute. >_>

  23. RennisPuniceusTora

    And thus the plot thickens! d:l
    Here’s hoping King meats somewhat nicer dogs.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Duchess may have just been amended into that category.

  24. maskedfur189

    awe poor king. im actually rooting for him at this point

    • RootsofOrigin

      You mean you weren’t already?

      • Crackles

        Some people are resistant for the adorableness.

    • Valerio

      …and you didn’t so far?

    • River_Dragon

      Hey, I LIKE King, but he’s not my favorite–I’m not a big fan of Corgis. I think what makes him so interesting is more the whole “human turned into a dog by a supernatural power taking the shape of a griffin” thing. Otherwise, he’d just be another short-legged, stubby-tailed, big-eared cattle-heel nipping wee beastie.

      I like Shelties better.

      • WolfBrother

        omg, i literally laughed out loud at ur amazing characterization of Corgis! but i love King, he just adorable =3

      • silverfang16

        Wee beastie….that’s so cute! <3 ^_^

      • River_Dragon

        Thank you, thank you…it is my pleasure to lighten someone’s day.

  25. Camtheman16

    Tell me why I was expecting a very snooty accent. In fact, I was expecting her to say something, then at the end say Darrrrrllling. *Sigh* Isn’t some sort of beauty contest without an equally/greater than snooty rival. Also, only way I see Karo winning is if he juggles flaming chainsaws while standing on a chair on one leg. He doesn’t look very cute at all. xD

    • Keldor

      “i’m not very good with names. That’s why I call everyone ‘dahrrrling’.”

  26. SilentWolfXIII

    It’s like every high class social gathering I’ve ever been to. Oh, the horrible memories!

  27. Lahi

    In a pageant your only friend is your wits… And your muscular partner with an 8-pack

    • WolfBrother

      mwahahaha not to sound conceited or anything but….i would be that partner V_V

  28. Lionbone

    I would love to see the Keene bring Miles and Lucretia to the pageant.

    • Lahi

      Instant win.

    • coyoteBR

      I want to see officer Kevin with…. uh…. a mirror?

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        He would but he already tackled it.

        • WolfBrother

          thats seven years bad luck!!!

          • Onemanarmy11

            Actually, in dog years, it’s 49 years D:

          • WolfBrother

            even worse! DX

          • Argent Stonecutter

            About 14 years in Housepets Dog Years.

          • Onemanarmy11

            Only 14? That’s better :3

        • ~Fluttershy~

          SandwichandCereal avatar!

  29. Tailz

    Ah the “I’m standing right here joke”, never stops being funny.

    • Tommyrazor

      I agree with you fully on that

      • Gary (from Radio free Housepets)

        I second that, and third for good measure.

  30. Firewolf

    Can I comment on the curvy like body on the border? o 3o Well I am, Looks Great! You’re doing excellent at portraying a female beyond just eyelashes.

    • Lahi

      Yeah he’s great! You can even use eyeshadow but that’s still like eyelashes isn’t it?

  31. Draven

    Karo is an interesting name

    • Argent Stonecutter

      King looks very fluffy in this strip, moreso than usual.

      • AthiosDvK

        Methinks it’s from the over-grooming that Duchess had done on him.

    • Xane

      Pretty corny name. He should have been Meatloaf, since he looks to be about 40 lbs of beefcake.

      • Baxtrr

        I see what you did there <.<

        • WolfBrother

          that was very witty…and yeah i agree, King looks a little fluffy but its probably just the bath and overgrooming =)

    • silverfang16

      I actually like the name. It’s unique!

      • Valerio

        ditto! Karo is original and suggestive

        • coyoteBR

          I don’t know if that’s the intention, but is very similar to “Caro” : in portuguese, can mean both “dear” and “expensive”

          • Valerio

            same in Italian

  32. WingedwolfGirl

    Hey Colleen, when you’re done with Karo, can I have him? XD

    • cheetahwolf12

      bad boy

  33. Damien James

    omg… one good looking border collie!

  34. kidaver

    am i the only one to notice Kings collar is different?

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      It’s his ‘good one’ he wears for dog shows.

  35. Colley

    Half expecting Colleen in the last panel to say, “Meowie!” like Opera from Solatorobo.

    • Megawolf

      I know what you mean, though I couldn’t put my finger on why at first. I think it’s the combination of the expression, the fan, and how she’s holding the fan.

      You know, There was a Solatorobo reference back around Christmas time. Maybe Rick drew some inspiration from Opera?

  36. Grip the Wolf

    King should have responded with “Interne” instead of “Movies”. That is literally the only way that this could be any funnier than it is.

    • Grip the Wolf


      • rallyjr

        “Movies” makes a bit more sence

        • Grip the Wolf

          Yeah, come to think of it, I doubt “normal” pets spend much time on the internet…

  37. James Smith

    The male dog(Karo) is supposed to be Border Collie, isn’t he?
    Do you have any idea what breed is that female dog?

    • IceKitsune

      Yes Karo is a Border Collie and Colleen is a Rough Collie.

  38. Elwood Blutarsky

    Judging by how puffed up Colleen appears to be I don’t think she’s done her collie duties lately, that boy is probably still stuck at the bottom of the well.

  39. Salenstormwing

    Random flexing, for when you want to look awesome and pretentious.

  40. 1boredcanadian

    Cat… I mean dog…erm…FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

  41. Tomas aldrete

    colleens partner is is hot!!!

  42. Z24

    Just in case, give King some Honey Boo Boo’s Go Go Juice.

  43. mocha chino

    where’s their tags? or do the judges not want to where tags

    • Legendario13

      Maybe colleen and karo doesnt have tags, and maybe king forgot his on the other collar, but duchess’ tag……..
      I have no idea, perhaps youre rigth and the judges dont want tags.

  44. Legendario13

    I feel so much like king rigth now…uff

  45. Kitch

    Shoulda compared it to High School Musical, King.

    • Legendario13

      When i first saw the background i couldnt help it but think on high school musical *shivers* the horrid bottom of the hell doesnt have the words to describe my pain!

  46. Ozimul

    It’s funny ’cause I never went to those dances.

  47. Draven

    I can’t help but worry this will be like an episode of “Toddlers and Tiara’s”

  48. Bob

    A collie named Colleen? Rick, have you by chance seen Road Rovers?

  49. ~Fluttershy~

    How dare you say those things about King! Release the zombie invasion!

  50. OperatorPony

    Karo is hot too.

    • Xane

      A bit too ripped for a border collie, though. They might think he’s a pit bull (there are pit bulls with similar markings)! Raffles was much cuter (bonus points if you get the reference). Also that smug look… bleh!

      I figure none of them will win. :lol:

      • silverfang16

        It’s so obvious, Sasha or Daisy will win somehow!

      • Valerio

        as Duchess put it, they exceed on the ’stuffy’ side.
        I hope Peanut and Grape come as the Valentine couple: instawin by cuteness!

        • Caynine

          I think we would all vote for them…but wouldn’t their species shun them respectively for that?

          • Valerio

            meh, it’s the judge who must decide who participate, not the participants.
            And Peanut is already mistreated by his peers…and only cuz he had drawn a cat tail over a dog’s body. he has nothing to lose.
            Grape…well, i don’t think it would be any wise to tell something to Grape. No.

    • silverfang16

      He is also a Border Collie, so he should be brilliant. XD

      • Sansash

        You mean in terms of intelligence, right?

  51. Critter Rhode

    For some reason Duchess keeps giving me the vibe that she was human once too. Maybe I’m just looking into it too much.

    • WolfBrother

      i agree, she is picking on Kings “slips” a lot more than any of the other characters. which lead me to believe she may be in on it too…buuut the odds of another human being turned into a dog by a supernatural creature is simply astronomical. with that said, Rick is creating this story and he can do anything he wants too. usually with awesome results so more power to him =D

      • Xane

        From what I got out of her first appearance, she seems to be a bit older than most of the main cast, and probably more worldly. She may be rather shallow, but that doesn’t necessarily mean she’s not very intelligent.

        • Keldor

          Correction: she seems more worldly than the other dog in that strip. Thing is, the other dog is Sasha, so that doesn’t say much. Sorta like being bigger than the largest mote of dust on that table.

          • WolfBrother

            very well said =)

  52. Javier

    Karo should have a monocle XDDD

    • Draven

      Karo is far to buff… actualy, that’s a great idea. As long as he also has a top hat.

  53. Argent

    Part of me likes you for using a collie. The other part wants to rage for you using a name from a favorite childhood TV show.

  54. Sansash

    Ah, Rick and his PG-pushing alt texts…

    Also would you look at that hourglass figure.

    • Caynine

      Love that alt text xD

  55. cheetahwolf

    I thought at first this was a town pet show or something. Now it seems to be a big thing with pets from other towns im guessing.

  56. SacrificerPS3


    KING! KARO! THEY’RE BOTH SYRUPS! Tell me I’m right, Rick!

  57. Xuncu

    *heavy accent* “I hhham… Karo! La-teen lov-vere extra-ordi-naire~! You may kees mai muscles.”

    • Kitch

      This makes me compare Colleen to Blanche from The Golden Girls.

  58. CyberSkull

    Bookmarked and subscribed! :D

  59. gameangel147

    Yes, a rival, just what this arc needed! Let the games begin!

  60. Blade

    No way king can lose judges love puppies and or tiny dogs that to me look like footballs (does not include king)
