        • silverfang16

          Beyond in fact.

      • sockeye101

        THOSE EYES

    • Camtheman16

      I’m…just so surprised. xD Duchess Nuuuu, he already has nother love!

      • Rexnano

        He better find a good way out of this before things get worse o~o

        • The_Peanut

          But your king, their for its your problem

    • Valerio

      well, King, that’s WAY to be popular with girls!

      • Ryufire

        I can just see Bailey and Duchess glaring at each other trying to get a hold of King! “Back off he’s mine”!!! “No, he’s ME!!!

        • Valerio

          *enter Sasha, grabs King and runs away with him, little hearts bubbling up around her* “No, he’s MY snugglepupillow!”

        • Lycanthrope

          “Baily’s got herself a boy and I want to make him mine….”

          /end 80’s

          • maskedman189

            yea hes watching her with those eyes, and hes lovin her ith that collar i just know it

        • Nohbody

          My money’s on the country gal over the pampered princess pooch if it gets to an actual fight.

          (Somewhat unlikely, in this comic, but not impossible given the Cerb/Pete dustup.)

          • Lycanthrope

            I would bet Bailey would clean Duchess’ proverbial clock and calendar in single combat. However, Duchess is unlikely to be the type to fight fair and would toss Boris at Bailey. Who would win that match is debatable.

            …Yeah I still lean toward Bailey.

          • Landon

            Bailey would still whoop butt. Never underestimate a farmgirl.

      • Trey

        I can’t wait to see where this goings. I can just imagine a cat fight between Bailey and Duchess. Oops I mean dog fight.

        • Air

          You just made me imagine both of them fighting in old-fashion cartoon airplanes.

          • Akisohida

            Well, someone is going to get shot down!

          • maskedman189

            glad im just in a dirigible, no way ill be shot down

      • mr.muchy

        i see this going south vary quickly but i dont think sasha will get pulled into this but i do for see a fox spotting are king running for dear life

    • legendario13

      YEAH BABY!

          • mike

            gotta bust some walls to make comedy gold LOL

    • maskedman189

      did m night shamalon direct this comic?

    • MenachemSchmuel

      Oh myyyyy #GeorgeTekei

  3. cheetahwolf

    watch out king, shes a bad girl.

    • avorin

      no no noo she’s a “charming young woman.” ;)
      but honestly…….. run king, run for your soul.

      • SilentWolfXIII

        I think he’s running for more than just his soul at this point 0_0

        • Shuma-Jindivi


    • silverfang16

      She’s a demon…. -_-’

      • alexanderseton

        i wouldent mind being chased by that demon. @(^o^)@

        • silverfang16

          Not with that demonic pink whip! O_O

          • alexanderseton

            still wouldent mind

      • Valerio

        the best there is!

    • Onemanarmy11

      A bad girl with a love whip and no collar. DANGER!!

      • Landon

        Don’t forget the pink handcuffs.

  4. senorpie7

    And that is how you scar a corgi. Questions?

    • SilentWolfXIII

      yes, why is it that commentary is said to be overrated?

      • MenachemSchmuel

        Typos? I’m assuming he meant “scare”.

        • Dissension

          Improbable; the word ’scar’ is perfectly acceptable in that context.

  5. Avan

    King’s expression was awesome XD

    • Koranos

      *preparing to find new avatars any second*

    • Sansash

      I’m trying to think of where I have seen an expression with those eyes like that before, but I don’t know.

      • alexanderseton

        that is the “DO NOT WANT FACE”

        • Air

          What artist could resist drawing that face at least once?

  6. DaveedW

    Duchess is really insane!

    • Xane

      I guess King’s the most “convenient” for her.

      She must think he’s incredibly cute if she’s trying to get him to go with her next year instead of finding someone “better”.

      • Valerio

        that, and she also can’t stand the thought of a male uninterested in her.

      • AthiosDvK

        I don’t think it’s how he’s “convenient” as much as how much losing the pageant to her rival pushed her over the edge.

        I predict someone will come along soon to completely draw her attention away from King, and all will be a-ok.

    • Valerio

      I’d rather say ‘affectively challenged’

      • P0lo

        I dunno, she’s having no trouble affecting King…

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Cruella de Vil… Cruella de Vil…
      If she doesn’t scare you no evil thing will…

      • IslaKariese

        To see her is to take a sudden… chill… Cruella…. Cruella…

        • silverfang16

          I almost remember those lyrics. :)
          Duchess needs her own theme.

    • Trey

      Wow she really has talking a liking to king. A whip and cuffs.

      • Sansash

        Well if you consider what she said in the first strip in this arc she does consider him to be “mouth-frothingly adorable”.

  7. Texascat

    I didn’t see anything…

    • dibs

      on that note, i didn’t see that coming…

      • Camtheman16

        This is what happened to me…

      • NyaTheTexascat

        Can u bang my head with hammer, that I can forget about this?

        • Shuma-Jindivi

          Nope, now none can unseen it.

          • nyathetexascat

            Well somehow in my mind, it is sensing a jealousy of my own… I wanted to be born as a dog or cat. lol am I the onlyone??

      • maskedman189

        m night shamalon

        • nyathetexascat

          whats about him?

          • maskedman189

            he must have directed this comic

  8. Blank_The_Nobody

    I think the sixth frame will be a lot of peoples avatars.

    • NyaTheTexascat

      I’m crossing my fingers.

      • Xane

        I’m sure Grip the Wolf will nab it :D

        • Shuma-Jindivi

          Your hypothesis is now proved.

        • nyathetexascat

          ha nice prediction!

    • MYW

      6th frame is my most favorite thing ever.

      • JeffCvt

        I’m sorry, my avatar is still my favorite King moment ever

    • Rexnano

      I agree

  9. garbud

    so thats what the love whip is

    • P0lo

      And those must be the Passion Handcuffs.

      • mr.muchy

        i think you might be correct

  10. Dissension

    Now everyone knows for sure what a “love whip” is. = P

    • Xane

      Apparently they come with love cuffs, too. :shock:

    • Zukio

      I enjoy that the love whip and cuffs are pink.

      • Camtheman16

        Im sure King cares much the color of them, as to how they’ll be used…

        • Camtheman16

          Doesn’t care*

      • P0lo

        I think at this point we can assume anything Duchess has is going to be pink.

        • Camtheman16

          Except her collar :P Or her brush.

          • Hokorippoi

            But she does not have a collar on right now … OnO… She is naked.

        • Dontlookmenaked

          Even the Hate Whip is Pink.

  11. Ronin LLC

    Wow King can sure run fast with those little Corgi legs.

    • pet_panda

      folks run faster when running for dear life

    • Argent Stonecutter

      He can go faster, he hasn’t broken out into the Patented Loony Tunes Spinning Legs Mode yet. With hot syncopated sound effects. See, you start this wobbly trill on the right hand while playing the bass line from “Powerhouse” with the left.

      • RoninLLC

        Yeah cartoons don’t abide by the laws of physics.

  12. IceKitsune

    Well this is rather interesting. :P

    • Valerio

      to say the least

  13. SilverZeo

    And now we’ve come to romantic comedy anime…

  14. Exulen

    I think he prefers slow motion pillow fights with Bailey

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Who wouldn’t?

      • Draven

        Me. I’d rather the handcuffs… er, pawcuffs

      • Tailz

        I’d rather take a broom to the face from Grape then snuggle with Dutchess.

        • Zarvain

          *looks at avatar* Although BEING her is another matter I take it? =P

          • maskedman189

            well who wants to snuggle with theirself?

          • Tailz

            That does make sense now that you mention it. ( I’m still gonna use it though)

          • silverfang16

            It’s……an ironic metaphor? : /

        • alexanderseton

          speak for yourself, woof

  15. Texascat

    That just ain’t right.

  16. Xane

    King is destined to never have a happy, peaceful life :|

    • Camtheman16

      Well if he did, we’d have a less interesting King, now wouldn’t we?

    • Valerio

      well, at least this IS an interesting way to have an ‘excited’ life.
      They all love him, no?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        It’s that “lady killer” face of his.

        • Valerio

          Cute + helpless FTW

          • maskedman189

            val, i can honestly say, reading your posts brighten my day

    • notU

      now that duchess likes him

  17. Barker

    Oh no…

  18. Avan

    In panel 2, king looks exceptionally short today. Even more-so than usual.

    • Valerio

      And Duchess looks exceptionally feminine, even more so than usual

      • darkgloomie

        I daresay she looks a charming young woman, even moreso than usual

  19. CrimsonFox

    Oh god x3 I can’t wait to see the next one, this is an awesome arc

    • Tailz

      I don’t know something tells me this is the end of the arc. Now we all know that Duchess is in love with King, and she’s making sure he knows it.

      • mr.muchy

        nah i think there will be 2-3 more before this one is done

        • Gary (from Radio free Housepets)

          We shall see. We. Shall. See.

          • CrimsonFox

            Oh yes we will! I expect at least one or two more :3

      • Lahi

        I thought that duchess was just trying to get him to like her purely for the next competition

      • Valerio

        not in love.
        She just wants him to be interested in her, to build the chemistry for the next year’s contest.
        She may actually fall for the cute corgi in the future, but it’s up to him to tell her he’s truly in love with Bailey. (And THAT will be a great moment)

        • CrimsonFox

          Or perhaps Bailey will show up and have a battle of wits! Or… just nom her face… whichever works x3

  20. redcollie

    adorable XD

    • efhosci

      What will these two w-w-w-wacky puppies do next? Find out after this commercial break!

      • Xane

        King and Girlfriends will be right back!

  21. The Wolf Kin

    I think King is officially scarred for life. Both of his lives, actually, human and dog.

    • Shuma-Jindivi

      You’re fast mate……

    • Tailz

      ^ My avatar is just… :P ^
      I’d say mostly his human life has been scarred.

  22. volkoseba

    I thought Rick had already done the best possible ‘creepy happy.’ Then I saw panel 7.

  23. Barker

    Wait… where is Lucretia?

    • Rick Griffin

      I was gonna draw her in by thought the frame would be too crowded. She’s the one delivering the line about meat.

      • Barker

        Okay. No longer confused. Thank you for the explanation.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Maybe you can * and footnote off-panel tags?

    • Xane

      Speaking off-panel in the first panel. Took me awhile to figure that out.

  24. Cristian100n

    I had a feeling it would be pink

    • SilentWolfXIII

      It would have to be, though I was still surprised to see pink handcuffs…

  25. Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

    *squee* OMG! This has TOTALLY made my night! Thank you, Rick! xD

  26. cheetahwolf

    just wait, i bet when Duchess tries to makeout with King- Bailey walks in.

  27. Camtheman16

    And…Are those the love cuffs as well? That amplifies this creepiness %200.

  28. PrivateElliot

    Man, Duchess is into some strange stuff.

    • Barker

      Taken men being among them, apparently.

    • Valerio

      oh, yes! She said she was King’s ‘girlfriend’.
      What a HUMAN thing to say!

      • The_Rippy_One

        To be fair, there are two excellent reasons to use the euphamism – firstly, it perserves the PG nature of the strip, which, let’s face it, this is pushing (and I adore it. Go man go!), and two, actually saying what he is to her would be honest, and Duchess doesn’t have an honest bone in her body (way to much plastic surgery…).

        • maskedman189

          lol so true.

  29. Zeundo

    wow kings life just keep on becoming more and more interesting

    i love how tiny he looks in the second panel

  30. SilentWolfXIII

    I probably would have felt disturbed if the pure absurdity of the situation hadn’t made me bust out laughing. Now that the humor is gone. . .

  31. Shirosune

    Okay, now that I’ve finished laughing my tail off, I have four observations to make.

    1.) Handcuffs.
    2.) She somehow got to King’s house before he did despite having gone to her own house first.
    3.) Miles is absolutely epic in panel 8.
    4.) As insane as it sounds, Duchess actually looks kinda cute in panels 4 and 7.

    • Pogiforce

      There’s also that Duchess’s words aren’t garbled or slewed in spite of her having a coiled whip in her mouth.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Well, there’s that general “how can they talk with doggy tongues” thing to begin with.

      • Valerio

        who cares?
        With that posing, she can say everything she wants!

        • maskedman189

          speaking of which. king is a stronger pup then me

    • SilentWolfXIII

      She’s cute no doubt. It’s too bad her version of “fun” involves what could generously be called “tough love”

      • Shirosune

        Hnn, and calling it that would be generous indeed.

        • SilentWolfXIII

          What can I say, I’m a generous kind of guy : P

  32. Pogiforce

    So it was that kind of whip.

    I thought this comic was PG? c.c

    • Rick Griffin

      Since when is a whip not a PG implement?

      • DaveedW

        A whip and handcuffs are not against PG rating.
        The implications that anyone can have about their use, well that can range from PG to anything…

        • Rick Griffin

          What happens in your head I do not have control over. I only have control over what’s put into the panel, and implications do not, contrary to popular belief, push ratings. It’s still tame by Animaniacs standards.

          • yoyodude

            Besides, she only mentions snuggling >:3

          • Ozuan

            Well said Rick! I was wondering how you were going to defend this.

          • DaveedW

            I agree with you. The title is a more trustworthy hint of Duchess intentions that any other thing anyone could imagine.

          • filmperson

            Tame by Animaniacs standards and indeed by the standards of many 90s cartoons…

          • Score

            I suddenly have the urge to watch all 90s cartoons.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Four words. Bugs Bunny. Elmer Fudd.

          • IceKitsune

            Argent the Loony Tune/Merrie Melodies Shorts were meant for adults in the first place they aren’t really a good argument. Not that I disagree with what is being said here, just that they don’t work as an argument.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            That wasn’t an argument. That was four words. Four awesome words.

          • Rick Griffin

            EVEN IF Looney Tunes was made for adults, which it was, very little of what was made actually qualifies for PG-13 material.

          • reaperofuria

            i would agree with rick.

          • River_Dragon

            And people tend to forget, anyway, since we’re so used to seeing ratings and theaters have become so good in enforcing them: With the exception of an X- or an NC-17-Rating, a PARENT has the option of allowing his/her child to see a movie/television show/presentation. An R-rating only means the parent must be present while the child is viewing.

            Frankly, I think the PG-13 rating is ridiculous to begin with. Children hear and see worse than the PG-13 every day in school or on the news. It’s just a way for lazy parents to feel good about themselves (IMO)

    • Camtheman16

      And once again, the strip pushes it PG rating, and makes methink it should be bumped up 1.

      • T-Squared

        My thoughts exactly! :D

    • roguebfl
      • Argent Stonecutter

        Where’s “W” for “weird”?

        • volkoseba

          Right next to “LW” for “love whip.”

    • Pogiforce

      Wow, I had no idea a noncommittal comment produced from a sleep deprived stupor would spark such a debate! I feel special.

      And look at Duchess’s eyes in panel 7. She’s a maniac, that one.

      • maskedman189

        you are special

      • volkoseba

        Welcome to the internet!

  33. falcon01

    I laughed so hard it hurt! The delightful combination of funny and creepy overloaded my laugh censor yet again at work.

    • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

      especially the sixth panel! xD

      • SilentWolfXIII

        King’s expression was epic, I won’t lie : P

  34. Valerio

    *MASSIVE nosebleed*

  35. redwolf

    King needs an adult

    • SilentWolfXIII

      Heck, I think he could do with a couple adults; maybe a armed helicopter

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        Would a pack of pseudo-civilized wolves do?

        • SilentWolfXIII

          If they’re heavily armed. . .maybe

  36. cheetahwolf

    come on King, this is what u do when a naked girl show up in your bed with handcuffs and a love whip. OnO (no collar means shes naked) Miles isn’t because hes has glasses

  37. Filias

    Duchess is used to getting what he wants, I predict the biggest laugh at the expense of King

  38. Camtheman16

    WAIT! Wheres Kings tag? Towel means shower? Tag’s gone? So confused >.<

    • Camtheman16

      Nevermind, pretty sure that thats his “Other” collar my bad. :P

    • P0lo

      He switched to his “Good Collar” for the show, and hasn’t had time to change back.

      That’s a scarf in the first frame, must be c-c-c-cold.

      • Nohbody

        It’s still February, and Babylon Gardens is at least far north enough to get snow in the winter. “Cold” isn’t that surprising.

  39. Chaplin

    Seduction fail.

  40. Valerio

    now, to implement chaos, we need Sasha showing up and taking King’s side while crushing him in a love hug

    • P0lo

      Love triangle!

      Just what King needs.

      • Valerio

        Not triangle.
        King + Bailey + Sasha + Duchess = Love Square and Fair :D

  41. GameCobra

    (cue Joel’s soul jumping out of King’s collar and running out the door in panel 6 )

    Funnest. Moment. Ever.

  42. AuvaAkita

    Kings Face!!! XD

    RUN KING RUN!!!!!!!!!!

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      See King Run, King Runs Fast.

      • maskedman189

        see dog sucubus run faster

  43. Sonic Fox

    Panel six is absolute unrefined win!

  44. Valerio

    “PETE! I don’t remember signing up for THIS!”

  45. filmperson

    Did not see that coming…though in retrospect perhaps I should have….

  46. P0lo

    I’m sure she was just letting him choose between Cops and Robbers or Cowboys and Indians.

    • SilentWolfXIII

      How many cowboys and/or Indianans pack pink handcuffs and a whip?

      • P0lo

        There’s one of each in the Village People :3

        • SilentWolfXIII

          Ok, you got me there ; )

  47. 2MK

    Why does King needed two pillows?

    • GrapeFan

      Well, it’s not too unusual…I use/have two pillows on my bed ;-)

      • maskedman189

        i had five, now three

    • Rick Griffin

      Given his size, he could actually use one as a body pillow were he so inclined

      • 2MK

        Oh, you mean like this?

        (By the way, this is my first fan-art in years. I’ll never do that again.)

        • Valerio

          aww, so CUTE!

          • maskedpup189

            i agree with val

          • Tynach

            Agreed. This should become canon.

        • GrapeFan

          Hey, 2MK, that is nothing to be ashamed of. Keep on making fan art. I look at it as an outlet, and it can only get even better. I recently started drawing/copying characters from HP! Keep on Going!

        • River_Dragon

          VERY cute!

    • Dontlookmenaked

      I use Three pillows.

    • mr.muchy

      iv got like 4-6 pillows on my bed

    • Sansash

      Bed also has a very tall headboard.

  48. RegularBird

    Oh man this totally made my day.

    • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

      I know, right? I said the same thing. =D

  49. GrapeFan

    Honestly, I would look like King in panel 6 if I saw what King saw lying on my bed and react accordingly…RUN AWAY!!!!

  50. Valerio

    Oookay, that’s an excellent way to build up some chemistry–*KA-BOOOM!*

  51. GrapeFan

    Duchess is clearly desperate. King is clearly freaked out. Miles,on the other hand is comfortably nonchalant and blissfully unaware…Puppy love indeed! Of all the situations that can be misconstrued!!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Makes you wonder what kind of games Miles and Lucretia play now.

      • Valerio

        the wild kind of games *bricked*

        • maskedman189

          yep, no collars. so no change

  52. jeromeamon

    And they called it puppy love

  53. GrapeFan

    Y’all may be tired of me posting, but the first panel eludes to the fact that King eats with the wolves at mealtimes and if he does, does that mean he’s gone carnivore, raw meat and all? (Not that that would be a bad thing, but King’s character doesn’t strike me as one that would give in so easily to feral customs, although he has made great strides in the canine world).

    • Dave

      I guess that they have other food beside meat just for him, they just don’t have *much* of it. I’m more surprised that there would still be leftovers, what with all the wolf cubs in the house.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      King said Joel had eaten dog food in the past, so he doesn’t seem to be a picky eater.

    • Xane

      Maybe they’ve been learning how to cook ever since the barbecue incident. I always wondered what the reactions of everyone other than Bill were. :lol:

    • Shuma-Jindivi

      I could imagine the wolves try to cook…

    • Dena

      Wolven cooking = toss it on the grill until it’s warm again, but not cooked. Eat.

      (Folks who’ve ever watched The Howling know what I’m talking about…)

      • WolfBrother

        indeed, i know exactly what ur talking about =)

    • GrapeFan

      I’ve been waiting for people to comment on my comment!! You guys are awesome! Thanks for making my comment a conversation.

      • WolfBrother

        no prob =)

  54. Aerion Snowpaw

    I wonder how King would have reacted if he didn’t have a girlfriend <.<
    I'm not saying he would accept, nor might she even have gone to his bedroom if it wasn't to mess with his head, but… It'd be different x3

  55. Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

    Seducing King: $100
    King’s face in panel 6: Priceless

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Love whip and matching handcuffs: $210
      “Feral Seduction” special at grooming salon: $127
      Panel 6: priceless

      • 1boredcanadian

        Am I the only one suprised that nobody has made that priceless moment their avatar yet?

  56. Anthromorphic Personification

    Oh King’s expression! Now theres a picture I shan’t forget for a very long time, wonderful. :D

  57. Kalasnokov

    did not expect that, even if Duchess said love whip i did not expect this.
    And what is Bailey going to say abut this?

    • Dontlookmenaked

      I was expecting it to be a pink whip and you whip somebody with it and pink hearts come out of there back.

      (sorry for grammar if it’s wrong)

  58. rallyjr

    this is one of the scariest things i have ever seen

  59. Hopper200456

    When I saw panel 5, my expression was the same as King’s. O.O

  60. Firewolf

    A whip….hand cuffs….the well known half lidded eye of seductiveness…she’s apparently trying to do two things. 1. Get King cause she iz jealouz. 2. prove you can have other relationships….But WOW!

    • SilentWolfXIII

      That and proving that the definition of what a relationship entails isn’t concrete. Ah, insanity opens so many doors

      • Firewolf

        Yup yup, what I meant, you said it better though XD Oooh poor king

  61. Jesse James

    Best comic.

    6th panel, geez. Amazing imo.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Ah, I think we finally broke him. Does not compute.

      • Dena

        No, it computes, he just doesn’t like the result.

  62. Normal Black Cat

    Am I wrong if I want more story of King then Peanut?

    • maskedman189

      yes and no

  63. icexcap

    King should have watched fatal attraction. But I got to admit the expression on king’s face was priceless. ROFL!

  64. reaperofuria

    a redish pink whip: 50$
    redish pink handcuffs: 45$
    the expression on kings face in panel 6: priceless

  65. xhunterko

    Run King Run!

  66. Camtheman16

    “Ill make sure you like it”? Sounds more like a threat then something romantic…

  67. Tailz

    Well I belive that we all agree that Duchess has finally snapped. Anyone agree?

    • Dena

      You’re working on the assumption she was ever -sane-.

      • Nohbody

        I don’t think she is insane, then or now.

        Now, her rationality is an issue about which I wouldn’t care to offer any guesses… :P

        (Mentally ill people can make rational decisions, just as mentally healthy people can make irrational ones. Rationality isn’t mutually exclusive to sanity.)

        • Nohbody

          Err, rather rationality isn’t mutually inclusive with sanity. Sorry, brain fart.

  68. 1cedGuardian

    I loved King’s expression in panel 6, it reminded me a lot of those old Peanuts/Charlie Brown comics and specials.

  69. DragonForLife


  70. Vladimir Zharkov

    Oh my…

  71. TheFoxWolf

    Poor king :( . Oh well, on the bright side at least they look adorable in panels five and six and she’s carrying a whip that’s pink.

  72. A.T.

    Panel 6 made me LOL!

  73. Argent Stonecutter

    Duchess looks bu… busty today, moreso than usual.

  74. TLV

    Oh dear. He won’t get far on those stubby corgi legs.

    • coyoteBR

      I am not sure. If willpower counts for something, he’ll get to Kansas running :D

  75. Agent Sandwich

    This cannot end well.

    Why does Miles look Asian wearing those glasses?

  76. LindseyCrew

    King’s brain is now mentally scared from panel 6 and beyond.

  77. Zaitsev

    Well Boris dodged the missile everyone predicted, what I’m wondering is how she sneaked the whip and cuffs into Miles’ house?

    • Nohbody

      Who said she sneaked it in? She could well have just said “it’s for fun” or somesuch, or not even said anything at all and let him draw his own conclusions.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        With Darryl in the house, I don’t think anything would surprise them. Remember the shaving cream incident?

        • Nohbody

          True, there is that, above and beyond the issue that they originally came from the wild (even if they said to Peanut that it sucked), and thus could have different opinions on what’s noteworthy.

  78. Draven

    The love whip AND the handcuffs of seduction, good gravy Duchess had gone nuclear.

    • Onemanarmy11

      Kinky. xD

  79. Salenstormwing

    Panel 6 is best panel ever. No need to ever draw anymore. You win. Everyone go home.

  80. T-Squared

    Oooh… kay….

    I’d say that the rating of this comic has just surpassed the rating of this comment system. o_o

    • Valerio

      whenever you think it did, think of all the Bugs Bunny gender-related gags: Pure PG rating with a funny twist, clean fun.

      • Nohbody

        While I don’t disagree that this strip is breaking the PG rating, citing Bugs isn’t that useful. Not only were those cartoons made for adults, there was no MPAA rating system back then (first implemented in 1968, replacing the previous Hays Code’s judgements on whether a film was “moral” or “immoral”).

        • Nohbody

          Erm, don’t disagree that this strip isn’t breaking the PG-13 rating. Sheesh… :(

      • Kitch

        Now that you mention this, it would be hilarious having Bugs Bunny pull a “The Crying Game” reveal on Elmer or Sam.


    • GameCobra

      And if that don’t help: PePe Le Pew

  81. smilesxd

    boris = hotty in glasses

  82. FatalFox

    His reaction to this situation makes a lot more sense when you remember he’s still a human inside =P
    Well also cuz he HAS a gf

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      No matter how ‘dog’ he thinks of himself as Duchess is still creepy as heck here! She’s nuts.

      • maskedman189

        irelevent video is irrelevent, but funny

  83. 1boredcanadian

    I thought the next scene was going to be her chasing him yelling “YOU WILL LOVE MEEEEEE!!!!” I was close enough.

  84. Azal

    Okay. I don’t know about everyone else, but I’ve not liked Duchess when I’ve seen her. But I think her panel 5 seduction check just wasn’t aimed very well because I think she rolled a 20.

    • Nohbody

      Pure YMMV there. Given her behavior previously, I’m thinking more a “2″. Like the Robert Palmer song “Bad Case of Loving You” goes, “a pretty face don’t make a pretty heart.”

      (Not too hard to find on Youtube, for those so inclined to familiarize themselves with the song.)

    • Azal

      Oh, her previous mentalities tell me one thing… flee. But one can appreciate seduction right before the bright red flashing light and the klaxon connected to the crazy meter goes off.

      Thankfully my delay is very short.

      • Azal

        (post post thoughts)
        Plus… I think it’s like fire. I know fire is dangerous… I know fire will burn me and everything I know and love. I know it is something VERY dangerous and is to be treated with absolute caution.

        That doesn’t stop me from thinking “Pretty” when looking at it.

  85. Onemanarmy11

    OH MY GOODNESS PANEL SEVEN xD Yet again, housepets has made my day. Thanks Rick! :D

  86. Valerio

    King’s ears are growing smaller by the update… :(

  87. notU

    now thats funny

  88. Grip the Wolf

    This… this is disturbing…

    • 1boredcanadian

      But why can’t I look away?

      • mr.muchy

        cause its funny to!

      • maskedman189

        cause it is fan service

        • Grip the Wolf

          I was not aware that my ceiling fans were in need of service.

          ….I sense a disturbance in the fandom…

          • SilentWolfXIII

            He does not yet know the power of the…ok, that’s pushing this way too far

  89. Tsunami

    I’m surprised no one’s said it yet.

    “It’s good to be the king.”

    • Kanashe

      Does “Hail to the King, baby” work?

  90. Caelo

    Edit: if*

    Also I’d say the love Hwip and passion-cuffs are a refined shade of coral.

  91. Tattorack

    O.O!! Oh GREAT, the ‘love whip’ is EXACTLY what I feared it would be!!
    (One pointer, this comic arc comes REALY close to provoking… certain things…)

  92. Nintendosagafan

    thats the King meister for ya XD

  93. Profesor Rod

    I’ll… go out and sit in a shallow pond…

    (This is a PG webcomic, this is a PG webcomic, this is a PG webcomic, this is a PG webcomic, this is a PG webcomic, this is a PG webcomic, this is a PG webcomic, this is a PG webcomic…)

    • WolfBrother

      my thoughts exactly…^_^

    • SilentWolfXIII

      Now now, just because she has a whip, handcuffs, and is dropping suggestive hints doesn’t mean we should all start assuming…oh, wait…

    • GrapeFan

      Not to beat a dead horse, but I also agree with all the rest who say that this strip pushed the envelope as far as the PG rating is concerned. Let the clean fun humor stand, unspotted by lewd innuendo and underhanded references.

    • Valerio

      …Make room…

  94. Lahi

    Just about everyone is going to use frame 6 as an avatar now.
    Great job rick! This is by far my favorite strip of all.

  95. lenn

    Oh Duchess!!

  96. FerreTrip

    Duchess, just Duchess…King’s expression…Miles’ nonchalantness…

    *dies laughing*

  97. Shuma-Jindivi

    I’d say there are really a lot of weird pets in housepets’ world.
    ……or they are just trying too hard to imitate human.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Stockholm Syndrome

      • Z24

        Um, that’ll be if King would fall in love with Duchess if she hold him hostage or threathens hsi existence

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Housepets are _owned_. All of them. Even the ferrets are technically owned by the Milton Trust. Definitely Stockholm Syndrome territory, even if the reasons for identifying with their owners are logical and valid… there’s a fundamental difference in power in the relationship.

          See also “Fridge Horror” in TVTropes.

  98. cesarinthewhitedragon

    I hope bailey comes and sends that girl to her place.. in the most painful way.

  99. Z24

    I bet there will be a record of avatars made from Panel 5 and 6

  100. Damanlyguy

    So that’s what the love whip was for. Too bad it didn’t go through with that. I would have liked that.

  101. VariedCookies

    I’m not sure if I like Duchess more or less because of this…
    At least the mystery of the ‘love whip’ is closed, as much as I now regret knowing.

  102. Argent Stonecutter

    Technical aside: a whip wouldn’t really be terribly effective as a “toy” if you’re covered in fur.

  103. Tomas aldrete

    hehehe Puppy love

  104. Stevie Maxwell

    I want to hate Duchess for trying so hard to go after another dog who’s obviously got no interest in her. I want to hate King for being so popular with the fans that it detracts from the three main characters of this comic. I want to hate this strip in particular because it’s so… cliché.

    I can’t. I just can’t.

    Panel 5 nearly induced a mess. Panel 6 took cuteness to a whole new universe. The big buff wolf is the perfect straightman (straightfur?) to the antics of the sleek saluki and adorably distraught corgi. And even if Panels 3-6 were removed and replaced with a pic similar to panel 8, it would still be hilarious (though most likely opening up too much fanart possibilities of what panels 3-6 could’ve been)

    And somehow I get the feeling that the wolf cubs know exactly how to use the whip and cuffs for good clean wholesome fun. ;)

    tl;dr ver: no H8, I <3

  105. Unnesessary

    Reactions to each panel.
    Panel 1: Heh, wild wolf jokes are still funny
    Panel 2: Bailey is there…wait
    Panel 3: Bailey can’t be there that fast
    Panel 4: …oh…
    Panel 5: O_O “rubs eyes and looks at panel again” O_O “checks rating”
    Panel 6: “bursts out laughing”
    Panel 7: “laughs even harder because of miles nonchalant attitude”
    Panel 8: “dies”
    Pure grade-A win is what this strip is made of, can’t wait for Friday. Bravo rick, Bravo.

    My guess is he is running to Fox’s house, but you have surprised me before. Panel 5 proves that.

  106. Kitch

    This is why stubby legs are a really bad thing. He cannot possibly outrun her. Hope he brought his wallet and his cell phone.

  107. John

    Pink handcuffs, whip… Coming on a little strong there Duchess?

    Yea, I would run too.

    • SilentWolfXIII

      Screw just running, I’d be throwing furniture 0_0

  108. Kanashe

    Why do I feel like there’s gonna be an epic girlfriend battle for King.

  109. Dan

    Oh No! Duchess the Seductress! Run, King, Ruuunnn!!! You have a good thing going don’t throw it away just because it’s long distance.

    I did once, I don’t realy regret it because I was like twelve and didn’t know what love was, still don’t realy and I’m now 20,but I still have plenty of time; but that’s not the point, the point is you can make work, you have cellphones.

  110. Haru Totets

    I’m hating her more and more…

  111. Muddypaws

    *In my best Forest Gump impression*

    “Run King. RUNNNNN”

    Oh that look of blind shock is wonderful (yeah… I’m not fond of “Fast” and “Loose” females either, King.

    • WolfBrother

      wow dude i totally get what ur sayin. another term is “easy” lol

  112. black fox

    Totly seen that coming lol

  113. Aenbr

    I see a whip and handcuffs…I think the title is misleading….

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      a PINK whip and handcuffs

      • SilentWolfXIII

        Because it HAD to be pink…

    • Hauntingsound

      Housepets: Proudly Straddling that PG border.

      (Because There are so few times you can use the word “Straddling” and still be contextually appropriate)

      • WolfBrother

        yes….just yes. the use of straddling and PG in the same sentence is just win. pure win =)

  114. Valerio

    Notice panel 7
    She’s smiling
    I love her

    • maskedman189

      dont we all?
      deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep down inside
      like way deep

      • SilentWolfXIII

        Some less deep than others, it seems : P

  115. ryanwolf

    i love OnO face… but omg she is crazy!

  116. ryanwolf77

    King… have fear of female dogs xD

    • Valerio

      too cute for his own good

  117. sonic id furreh!!!

    *giggles* X3

  118. Argent Stonecutter

    OnO-face – for when BSOD-face just isn’t enough, you can push this dial a little further, turn it up to 11…

  119. NTKPaige

    Well dang, I ran out of comic, just finished reading through the archive! Love it love it love it, make more! Bigger! Faster! Furrier! ;-)

  120. NTKPaige

    Just finished the archive, love the comic.

  121. notU

    the first bottom and third bottom made my day

  122. Sansash

    Hey Miles’s fingers are transparent in panel 7!

    • Sansash

      I’ll give you a hint AAAH! I’m NAKED!

      • notU

        i found your icon its in google images page 11

      • notU

        wait…. i think its , just kidding it when pete turns the “kidnapper” into king (i must of missed a week of reading)

      • notU

        its when king become king

    • spencershot5


    • gagi

      I thought rick would have fixed that by now, he usually does. Or maybe Miles is a ghost!

  123. Mikayy

    And they called it, puppy loooooove!

    • notU

      at least we know what the love whip looks like

  124. notU

    king: curse these tiny leg
    duchess: lets snuggle

  125. ThatGuyWithABurrito

    Baww, someone already took panel 6 as an avi, either way that is probably one of the BEST panels in the entire webcomc. And yes… *nosebleed*

  126. ReCreate

    Goodness. Rick’s really getting suggestive in this strip! XD

    • alexanderseton

      and we love it

      • SilentWolfXIII

        Details are always nice; even if it involves some rather. . .controversial content

      • WolfBrother

        who doesnt? i mean really lol

      • Valerio

        MOST definitely :D

  127. One-Who-Howls

    Should I be concened I have no clue what’s going on in the bottom left end panel?

    • legendario13

      You may want to read the previous 5 strips al least.
      that would give you a pretty clear idea.

      • One-Who-Howls

        I know what’s going on, just not why he’s freaking out or why Duchuss has a whip and pink handcuffs.

  128. legendario13

    Ohhhh.. ‘love whip’…..Now i get it

    By the way have you ever heard this song?

    • Wut

      Wow…. that was rather random.

      • Legendario13

        Yes it is aha aha
        I like this aha aha
        hahahahahaha… mmmmmmm…

  129. adoff

    love the face on king… laughed for 3 minutes… also s many wrong things went through my head when i saw Duchess lying on the bed with a leash :/

    • SilentWolfXIII

      I fear that isn’t a leash. That, my friend, is the love wHip

  130. spencershot5

    i love how bored the wolf is he doesn’t even ask someone there name and lets them in his house and then thinks its ok for them to be chasing his house guest naked with a whip!

    • Nohbody

      She probably just identified herself to him as “King’s girlfriend”, and didn’t think to ask the name or he felt it wasn’t his business. Being from a wolf pack doesn’t mean not understanding the notion of privacy, especially given how well-read he seems to be.

  131. Grip the Wolf

    Panel Six: Mother of God

  132. spencershot5

    O_O cuteness goes to another demention!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT HURS MY EYES!!!!!

      didnt you notice the things in her paws

  139. Ricky

    Kings future dose not look bright for him right now.

  140. Hein Zetsumei

    Good clean wholesome fun… with handcuffs and a whip… and chasing with promices of likeing… i have no words that can be said in a pg envorment… but wow… XD

  141. spencershot5

    i thin i notice things like this because i live in kansas but does any one wach sweet life on deck
    codys girfreind is named BAILY picket ans she is from KANSAS i think it wasnt on purpose but its just odd i also think how dumb people think people frome kansas are is because of how they show us on tv i hate how much they make fun of us and to be honest yes i do in fact slur my spech from time to time but now every one is i bumb farmer in overools with paches and we use slang everyday because we dont (every time i wach tv and someone makes fun of kansas or a tv show makes u look like hobos i want to litery kill myself i have diabetes so i can do it all i have to do is not take my medicene and ill go int a coma and die in 1 day AND IM ONLY 13 it so sad)its just not fair! but i like this comic but not everyone from kansas has a huge family and owns a farm so its not acurate.

    • spencershot5

      i am sorry for blowing up like that
      but its all true

    • notU

  142. Icalasari

    You’re sending mixed messages to the furries again, Rick o.o

    • gagi

      Nope, he’s sending clean snuggle messages. Furries on the other hand are probablt receiving something else, so it has to be noise in the comunication.

      • P0lo

        More like *static*

    • GameCobra

      Nah, i think he’s sending a clear message X3

      But the best part is how cute it is. Duchess ain’t holding back, but then again: When dealing with pets, when do you ever expect them to hold back when it comes to puppy love?

  143. tythin4

    This will be one of the few times I’ll comment here. Duchess now creeps me out!!

  144. Hobbes

    I’d have expected a muzzle… XD

    • notU

      or chains

      …I fail to imagine why.

    while listening to my iPod, I stumbled upon this song that for some reason i think fits Duchess nicely:

    sorry for the lack of translation, will work on it ASAP

    • Valerio

      oh, and the title, translated, is “Love me… Think about me.”

    • Xane

      Heh, I’ve thought of several songs that fit this scenario but none of them can be posted here due to the rating.

    king should pull a groovitron so she dance to it and king cab lose her eazy and this song should be playing

    Am I the only one who realizes that Duchess is naked, because she isn’t wearing her collar. *nosebleed*

    • Valerio

      definitely not the only one, mate

    I’ve read all the comments… and I’m the only one to comment… How can Duchess have many layers of a curled whip in her mouth and still talk normally? Its a lot harder than one would think, even with only one layer.

    • Kitch

      Two possible explanations:

      1) It’s only between her front teeth, allowing her tongue to move, giving her a fairly good ability to speak still.

      2) MST3K Mantra.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It’s already been brought up.

      And, my answer is, she’s a dog, her sloppy tongue and narrow jaw make coherent speech virtually impossible in any kind of realistic analysis, so just ride with it.

    • Draven

      She is obviously part dolphin, using her telepathy while moving her mouth to give the appearance of vocal speaking.

    This has to have been the most suggestive and controversial comic in Housepets history.

    I seem to remember smoking cat nip being too mature, but whips and handcuffs are not?
