King is just an innocent victim of the Love Whip! >u<
not yet, he is keeping just out of reach
He’s too cute and helpless to outrun the whipping of love for that long.
That would all be great… if Duchess is actualy going after him because of that.
She wouldn’t care less about who King is, she just needs something to show off! >.<
Fox couldn’t help this time.
Well, it would have required that King have a little good luck – and how likely is that?
Considering he saved King’s fate clock thingy I say that was rare lucky moment.
Eh? What was that? Oh well, I guess no one is there.
Now what do we do then? -_-
Run King RUN!!!
“And when you’re through running, RUN SOME MORE!”
Closed Captioning: “[No Audio]“
closed captioning brought to you by Fox Headphones, keeping you nearly oblivious to any emergency since panel 1
dono if I laughed harder at the strip or your comment!
that was pretty awesome, i’m not gonna lie! XD
Fox in headphones looks pretty cool.
Cuz his dad earn lots of money to feed twelve wolves
Oh wow, my phone just chops off my words.
his dand dont own the wolve the ferets own the wolves and king fox is the cops only dog
I think he uses Skullcandy.
Eewno. Those are horrible quality, I bought a $100 pair w/ subwoofer at HMV and they sucked compared to my $40 in-ears. And my sister’s $40 pair just broke completely – the left earpiece fell off and the right stopped working.
He does get a good allowance I suppose.
heheh knew he would go to Fox
It has worked before! : /
Well Fox can’t help King now. Back to reading and being completely unaware of the outside world.
I can’t believe that the film “The Artist” inspired you.
Run as far a ur lil feet can take you!
and then keep going
run captian nubs!!!
And then… run faster
Now who is going to help him??
…. actualy I wouldn’t know….
i think it will be peanut or grape some how
Tonight at celebrity deathmatch:
Grape with frypan VS Duchess with love whip!! O_O
Good fight good night!
I think it would be sasha.
Sasha VS Duchess – That would be a good strip or two
^That is all.
well come to yhink of it peanut has never meet king
Not necessarily, I’m pretty sure he’s met him, just they haven’t been shown a lot together on-panel.
Looking at later comments… nevermind.
I agree but I find no reason that grape to be mad at her, I know “she” is kind of ‘I kill u’ but I think Rick will give us the unpredicted consequences.
Maybe he will save himself!
I am going with the idea that this is the first time he meets Peanut.
wait.. he never met peanut?? That is true! I didn’t know that
Yeah it’s hard to remember that. I usually forget that he hasn’t myself. : /
Headphones and a good book, there’s nothing quite like it.
In all honesty I’m surprised that Fox noticed at all with such a potent distraction mix.
His friend-sense tingled…
or was it that feeling you get when your being watched?
Well, King *was* shouting at the top of his lungs and banging on the window…
Not quickly enough.
i think this is going to lead to peanuts house
for some strange reason
Ummm I hope it dose not leads the story to triple date.
i know it wont be comfortable for king
Or Suddenly Baily appear… canine fight!!
but we havent seen them in a while
Yeah I kindda miss them eventhough we got the best reaction from king.
i know this chapter been funny
Duchess vs Grape?
But I find no reason for grape vs duchess,
still would be awesome
I mean… I think there is going to be unpredicted consequences.
Oh… that’s why King hasn’t been saved yet. And probably won’t be. Now his only hopes are Bailey surprise visit, Sabrina uncharacteristic intervention, Pete… doing something even more horrendous, or growing a backbone. Welp… hi ho love tri-angle thingy!
Tarot. It’s not like she doesn’t know what’s going on.
Tarot: What am I? the keeper of Babylon Gardens?
You knew the job was tough when you took it.
Naturally, who else can see everyone’s future?
Sasha likes King a lot too, she might help out since she seems to know Duchess.
“omg duchess you forgot your collar. Quick, put that pink leash on, maybe nobody will notice… Boy, this is a funny leash, maybe if I slip it through here… That’s not too tight!”
The chase continues!
Next time don’t add the Alt text and it’ll truly be a comic without any text lol
Ha!!! wrong! there is text, or is Fox reading a blank book.
Well it does look blank when he holds it sideways.
Maybe he just uses it to fool people into believing he’s doing something constructive.
Nah, we know he reads a lot. Not as much as Peanut, though.
or maybe it really is a blank book. It’s a sketchbook, and he’s deeply contemplating what he should draw in it!
So caught up in his planning that he hasn’t realized he forgot to bring his pencils yet. XD
Nah, he keeps them in his collar.
Or it could be a book like those cat reads in red dwarf. No text but with the story. Written out in scent
Maybe it’s a picture book!
He closed the book because he was anticipating the need to stop reading, but kept his thumb in to hold his place just in case.
Alt text please. And he was just a little to late to see king. Poor king:(
they would need a censor for what i would write =)
Alt text: “First comic without text! Oh wait now I ruined it”
This arc ain’t over yet! Maybe.
And Duchess looks a little too crazy now. Not in the, “vengeful” way, but in the “I want to have your poppies” way.
funny thing is, i actually thought it was over last week, or at least was about to be finished, ha. little did i know….
little did the man know, he had just typed his way into, the dog house zone.
Yeah, I noticed that too. she’s got wide manic eyes and a goofy grin. Even though she acts like she hadn’t fallen for his cuteness, she DID recognize that there was no other dog who could help her win it, so that may be her weird way of recognizing his good traits. I said this before, but I wonder if as she continues this charade of being madly in love with him, she ends up actually madly in love with him.
More like unrestrained glee. She’s loving every second of this.
yes she is and its fun to watch! King is yet again the lady magnet
I wonder what song he is listening to?
and does the music play strait from the head set ?
Maybe its a radio headset.
very true your a genius
If you look in the third panel, there’s a cord coming from the left ear. They’re plugged into something, probably an MP3 player of some sort.
Ready steady Go!!! By Paul Oakenfold
Good choice of music
The right lyrics for this scene: ‘Leave the message after tone~’
perfect song: by the time you get this message by flobots
Yakitti Sax. Perfect song for the occasion that he was oblivious to. XD
Boards of Canada Dayvan Cowboy. It’s a great song for when you want to do nothing but lose your mind in a quiet place.
Now Playing: Powerhouse, by Raymond Scott.
Next Up: Merry Go Round Broke Down, by Barney Kessel.
Album: Greatest Hits from Wacky Cartoons
Who Let the Dog’s out?
Something about huskies by Frank Zappa…
I think Evelyn, a Modified Dog, would be appropriate:
“Evelyn, a dog, having undergone
Pondered the significance of short-person behavior …”
Actually, I retract my current choice in favor of Can’t You Hear Me Knocking by The Rolling Stones.
Ah Fox… Wrong timing there…
which makes it funnyer
Am I the only one picturing King running full-speed and Duchess doing that Pepe Le Pew prance behind him?
now you got me thinking about it
Like that cat in retro WB that always chased by skunk?
nope, the other one
Other?? I have no idea what is other.
Duchess: “Le bow-wow-wow! Le bow! Le wow! Le Rawr!!!”
Except that Pepe Le Pew was actually lovestruck. Duchess here is only doing it to push King’s buttons.
Think i mentioned that in the last comic =P
i think King would rather be chased by an army of skunks
He quite possibly would rather be sprayed by an army of skunks, at this point.
No, no you’re not. I was absolutely thinking of the end scene in Pepe le Pew cartoons, where he’s being chased by the love-sick cat.
Not anymore, you’re not!
Duchess seems to be going at full tilt though. You probably can’t do effortless love prancing unless you’re actually in love.
grape will save the day with the power up: (BROOM TO THE FACE!!!)
or mabe the k9 unit
Or the frying pan.
Perhaps, but I don’t think King knows Peanut/Grape that terribly well. If he doesn’t find a way to get Fox’s help, my bet’s on Sasha’s house next.
I’m getting a feeling that Baily is coming soon in somepart… just thinkin’
Remember, Bailey’s in Kansas (which is where I’m from).
Exactly. She was in Kansas during the Dog Show (presumably, because she was milking cows). I don’t believe a day has passed, so it’d be quite the coincidence to just happen to run into her during the chase scene, although I can definitely see her getting involved soonish.
I can see that.
i can see drama on the horizon followed by a 60% chance of halarity following
I’m from Kanses too.
i’m not FROM Kansas but i lived there for a few years =)
maybe the rich ferrot can give her a ride with plane.
Fox is super-observant.
He’s not the only one to respond like that with headphones on to noise. It’s the turn-look-and-if-there-is-nobody-there-go-back-to-what-you-were-doing approach, very common among headphone users.
And cartoon characters.
For someone with such big ears…
Well he noticed it faster than most would.
I get distracted to easily.
I would have noticed…I think.
To the walls
Woo, good job. I was afraid that post was going to be up to me : )
Quick, King make like an action star and jump trough the window, your stuby legs can do it!
Ka-Thump! Double pane.
*Slides down the window*
you’d think he’d call fox’s house on his cell now, or run to sasha next, or fido, or call bailey and tell her what happening so she can call fox…or forgive him for whats about to happen.
i like the last thing you said it make me think of me in a devious way mmmmmmmmmmmwoooaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh
You ever try and dial a cell while running?
A smart dog would have them on speed dial.
If Joel was smart, he wouldn’t be King.
well said Argent
i dont think he would risk gettting chought by duchesss
did i do something wrong. my first text is gone.
(fox, looklooklook!!! —– missed it) so what can i put there if that the problem.
There is a link in the comment rules to send an e-mail to the moderators. That is the preferred method for asking such questions.
keep runnin’ d00d!
Only Sasha can help King now!
or tarot. (IN DRAGON FORM)
Is there a running gag about Fox yet?
well this isn’t at all where i wanted it to go…. oh and btw isn’t the Tarot and the Spirit Dragon separate entaties?
they are different, yet they are the same. confusing aint it?
I think that’s about the only thing that can stop Duchess now
11 strips in and I still have no idea where this arc is going…
…watch it go back in time to when Max gets his ear bitten in half.
we r not with the housepet babies anymore
I was just using that as emphasis…
I wish we were
i wonder how long king can keep that up… actually, how long can duchess? KEEP RUNNING KING!!!!
Maybe we’ll go into a new arc on Monday, with occasional shots of King and Duchess in the background as a (sunglasses) running gag.
Now that would be good.
It is at this point I would throw myself through a window and beg for help. At least if the cops got called they could save me from the psycho chick with the pink whip of DOOM!
LOVE, not doom…
they mean for king
Love, doom, in this situation I think they’re interchangeable.
She may be playing innocent now, but I swear she’s a psycho-charming young lady!
I see what you did there.
That’s psycho chick with a huge amount of money. Something tells me it wouldn’t be hard for her to convince the cops that King has accepted the pursuit
Nice to see Dutchess enjoying herself, anyway…
She seems to be taking her loss pretty well…
Suddenly it sounds as if someone died…
I think at this point she’s completely gone off the deep end.
Funny, considering how shallow she is.
Dang it Rick, your text ruined it >:U
I wondered how a dog would wear headphones. King seems have gotten some lead on Duchess if there was at least a full panel’s length between them.
Hehe, gotta love the way Fox shrugs in the last panel.
So close! Why couldn’t you look faster Fox!
Also the title reminds me of “Get Low” by Lil Jon + Eastside Boyz. “To The Wall” should be the next comics title.
No, NO no no no DX word of this can’t get to Bailey, oh please don’t do this to us!
Three words concerning the current King/Duchess situation – Benny Hill theme.
Yackety Sax, by James Q. “Spider” Rich.
I like to think that’s what Fox is listening to on his headphones.
That would go well with my previous suggestions.
i laughed so hard i droped to the floor rolf loling
Am I the only one picturing this as the generic cartoon “hallway of doors” chase scene played to “Yakitti Sax”?
Its good to know he’s going for some help from Fox, now if he only knew King needed it.
king should have jumped right in
Not the first time we see Fox with a book… since it wasn’t said he is a Pridelands fan, i wonder which genre he likes to read…
Science Fiction, I thought. Didn’t he loan a bunch of SF classics to Peanut?
Oh he is such a liar about that anyway. I’m sure he’s read all the books, but tells everyone he’s only read the parts about the wild dogs.
I love the subtlety of this comic, it’s awesome x3
oh my gosh the funny, it hurts! best strip ever
and this why i dont want a girlfriend lol
Yay! Cute small king! I’m thinking of Puppy Linux XDDD
Duchess is a dog on a mission.
And oh what a creepy mission it is!
You know, I don’t get why people say Grape is going to help him. Don’t you all remember when he met her during the party when he was flirting with tarot, she may be more likely to make some popcorn and watch if he runs by her house.
Even if that doesn’t happen I would expect him to try harder to get to fox or run into Sasha to get help. Worst case scenario, tarot psychic abilities warn her that king is in trouble but the top 2 seem more likely.
She wouldn’t get to popping it before King disappears over the horizon!
it would be funny to see Grape helping King
Fox is a no go. Sasha would say (aww, that so cute) or something and not care
Tarot is the best hope
I don’t know why, but the visual gag here made me laugh harder than I have in a long time.
dispite everything that has hapend so far this is what I think should happen next. I think either king should give up or get caught at the start (either way getting his legs cuffed so he can’t run anymore), have duchess calm down and reasure king to try to get him to enjoy it and then in the last panal it’s morning (like around 10 I’ll say) and king has just gotten back, someone sees him enter and the only thing said is by king “don’t…ask”.
how about King say ok to duchess then they go back to his place. when hes there he uses the the handcuffs to tie her to the bed then he run away.
(the whip is up to him to use)
One of them is bound to tire… eventually
King needs to hold on till then!
Duchess is a Saluki…she’s not going to tire anytime soon. Sorry, King.
What if Bino sees this and gets furious over the fact that now King has the lady dogs all over him and then he interrupts with a tirade of his own distracting Duchess enough for King to slink away?
That would actually make sense…
Duchess is streaking!!!
Quick pull out your cell phone king, call Bailey & when she pick’s up jump into her panel for protection …but then again with king’s luck Bailey might have a love whip to lol
He wouldn’t mind HER love whip. ;3
Classic, that’s all I got to say, classic.
Bad timing at its finest
Hah. If one of my friends was being chased by my window, that would probably be exactly what I would do/be doing at the time, too. And to top it off, his name is Fox, too. Oh, the irony.
An odd yet unlikely thought popped in my head, Duchess + Fox? o3o and poor King
Fox, get this girl off me!
First comic without comments! Oh wait now you all ruined it.
Notice the slight shaking and slight decrease in smile, as duchess is in the window? Fox must feel something deep down in his instincts thats somethings wrong
Fox seems scrawnier in this strip.
dang, i wish i would have checked this comic sooner. i would love fox’s face as an avatar =/ o well, awesome comic even without txt!
GO KING RUN FOR YOUR TRUE LOVE,RUN LIKE SONIC! (or for bronies)FLY LIKE RAINBOWDASH! TO ESCAPE FROM THE “love whip”
Thank you for adding the part for bronies. I’m sure Rainbowdash would be proud.
To bad King isn’t Dovahkin, cause he could use whirlwind sprint to out dash her, or just use Unrelenting Force for that matter.
ha King is all like “WAZZZZZZZZZZZZZUPPPPP!”
I have to say im eager to see the next strip i just spent all day and well in to the night reading each and every strip on here from begining to end. (would have taken less time if i wasent getting interupted) found something new im adicted too. makes me want to start drawing again! and i think that it will be Tarot hat saves him….or the dragon >o.o<
LOL So glad I’m not the only one who automatically thought “TO THE WALLS”
not even Fox can help you now King! just keep running!
*says like shorty from “scary movie”* RUN KING.. RUUUUUUUUUUNNNNN
she hates him but looks like shes having so much
fun chasing him :I
i cant imagine the thing shell do to him ;3
Oh man, I had such a backlog because I’ve been so busy. Just caught up with this whole arc! Personally, as a corgiwolf, if it were me I wouldn’t be running from the love whip… >:)
are you sure look who’s holding it
