  1. Ryufire

    Sasha, how sweet and humble you are! Anyone would seek her help in dire situations :P

    • Rey of Light

      But , what is she even watching?

      • Cristian100n

        Jeopardy?

        • Rexnano

          Thought so as well

  2. rallyjr

    you could ask… nvm

    • cheetahwolf

      try a cat, no wait—all they is sleep.
      the ferrets, noway. money is going to their heads.
      the zoo?

      • senorpie7

        You know he could be heading to sabrina’s

        • IceKitsune

          Sabrina lives with Tarot. He will most likely hit Peanut and Grape’s House next since they live next to Bino.

      • nizmir

        What do you mean, they’re all asleep? I’m sure Tiger’s still up.

        • black fox

          O I seen whut u did there

  3. nyathetexascat

    How many Shasha does it take to change a lightbulb?

    • Tynach

      Three. One to realize it needs changing, one to tell the third it needs to be changed, and the third one to try to talk it into changing its mind.

      • The_Peanut

        wow, you should work for rick.

        • Tynach

          I actually had to think about a good response, and I threw away a few ideas before coming up with that one.

          I tried to think of, “How could Sasha misunderstand ‘changing a light bulb’”, and decided she might think changing it’s mind. That was after I decided to break it up into ‘one tells the other’ and ‘one to realize it’, though… I originally had it as ‘two’, and changed it to fit the new joke :P

          Overall, I’m terrible at coming up with witty statements on the spot, but I’m medocre to decent at coming up with them after thinking about it for a while.

          Kinda like how I am in math. I suck at doing math fast.

          • Ezhno Pallaton

            That and you ruined the joke by explaining it :P

          • spencershot5

            i believe it should me 12
            one to figure out what it is.
            one to figure out the problem.
            one to find out where to get a new one.
            one to get it.
            5 to reach it (because there so short)
            one to figure out how to take it out.
            one to get it to magically fix itself.
            and finally one to actually change it.

      • Critter Rhode

        And some how she did talk the bulb into changing it’s mind. And it started working again. o.O

        • Tynach

          Actually, I think that’s how it’d go with Tarot, or maybe Sabrina.

          With Sasha, it finally starts working after she offers to date it for the weekend.

          (Woo, thought of that one on the spot.)

      • nyathetexascat

        Lolol O.o u guys r so hilarious! Thanks for making me laugh

        • WolfBrother

          wow, this comic combined with all your guys’ comments always brighten my day. thanks all! =3

          • nyathetexascat

            Well thanks for your thanks.
            I always feel like being nice to someone who has Fox as their Avatar. I just love Fox, I wish I can have a frined like Fox..

  4. xhunterko

    Almost.

  5. Will

    Yeaaah… He’s not that desperate. though I’m still confused why Tarot didn’t help him.
    Still though this was funny.

    • Critter Rhode

      It wasn’t in the cards.

  6. Cristian100n

    good choice just keep running
    just keep running just keep running

    • Kohaku Nightfang

      …running running. What do we do? We run, run

  7. senorpie7

    I think joey looks rather normal in this strip!!

    • rtlstien

      That’s Bino
      The strip makes much more sense if you account for the history between those two

      • senorpie7

        Well, I suppose bino has lost weight because he looks strikingly similar to joey! Not to mention the scarf is covering his collar!

        • Koranos

          doesn’t joey have a dark patch on his right eye tho?

          just checked, he does.

          • Dissension

            Indeed. :3

            Additionally, the tags say ‘Bino.’ That’s always the best way to check, if you’re not sure.

          • Draven

            You can’t even really see his right eye.

    • nyathetexascat

      I didn’t know he is Joey before U said it. Family of Bino’s are bit simular to each other…

      • nyathetexascat

        D’oh I was right, nevermind

    • Keldor

      He *does* look a bit like Joey. I think it’s the expression of thought and concentration, which Bino would never wear. Or not often at least.

  8. Lookatmyfakename99

    Ohhhh, diss on bino! XD

  9. cheetahwolf

    i dont think anyone can help

    • Ryufire

      King can only help himself unfortunately! :(

      • Valerio

        perhaps that’s the whole point of the arc.
        He must face duchess and tell her straight from his heart that he’s in love with bailey.

        • Warp

          That or punch her in the face. Not that I like to see people get- oh what the heck. DRAW BLOOD, KING!

        • Trey

          If King stops to tell her that she’ll put him in the love cuffs before he gets a chance to say anything.

  10. rtlstien

    Go to Peanut! I don’t recall the two of you ever speaking to each other! Do it!

    • nyathetexascat

      Peanut will be playing Mariocart, he could not answer the door.

      • rallyjr

        But Peanut loves to open the door, and if not him there is Grape

      • Tynach

        Grape would probably answer. Cats are nocturnal, so she wouldn’t be taking a nap.

        • Zenaku

          Not if Peanut woke her up too much during the day.

      • nyathetexascat

        Any radom things can happens in HP,
        Grape for sure. she never met king but saw him before, so she can give him a hand (or broom)

    • Crackles

      i don’t think Peanut would be any good to solve this problem. Grape on the other hand has a broom.

      • Meike Hund

        We shan’t forget the very beggining of this whole story how formidable Grape is with a broom?: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/08/13/stick-em-up/

      • Frank

        And a frying pan! I wouldn’t be surprised if she still has that one!

        • silverfang16

          But then she won’t be able to use the trademark BROOM TO YOUR FACE move.

        • Meike Hund

          … It’s covered in bacon grease, I’d sure as heck keept it ;P

    • Valerio

      Peanut would be scared by Duchess!

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      They likely meet off-panel at the GODC Christmas Party but King and Peanut have never interacted storyline-wise.

  11. Dissension

    Yay, Bino! *giggles*

  12. Xane

    “DuchessBinoBinoDuchessSeeyalatergottarun!”

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Duchess and Bino have to know each other, they have some kind of time-share co-minion arrangement with Boris and Yeltsin.

      So going to Bino for help with Duchess would be like going to the Penguin for help with Catwoman.

  13. Zaitsev

    Bino has some tenacity making a snowman this late in the night.

    • Xane

      Actually I think it’s probably just after dark, really. King just got home a little late for dinner. For some reason it does feel like it’s the middle of the night but it’s probably only about 7-8PM.

      • Frank

        Well it is February

      • Zaitsev

        Even then look at that determination, that stark devotion to finishing his icy masterpiece, un-phased by the quarrels of the world around him.

      • GrapeFan

        Especially if Sasha is watching “Jeopardy!”

  14. Jackalope121

    gotta love Sasha. totally in “la la” land

    • Valerio

      …while King stays in “oy oy” land

  15. Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

    Bino’s all like “I thought I saw…..nah.”

  16. IceKitsune

    Lol Sasha is funny to see as well as King in panel 3. Rick I have to ask what is with kind of obvious Filler/Padding strips here? Not that it isn’t funny but why?

    • GrapeFan

      Good Question! I second this motion. all in favor say “aye!”

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It’s a chase sequence!

      • IceKitsune

        He could have easily done this part as a triple strip I’m just kind of wondering why hes making it separate entries it just makes it very Fillerish at that point.

        • Dissension

          Not every strip has to involve a huge leap forward in the plot.

          • IceKitsune

            I’m sorry I just don’t like padding or filler never really did never will.

  17. Zenaku

    Fox, nope. Tarot, no help either. Sasha, not today. Bino…. ABSOLUTLY NOT!!!!!!

    • Zenaku

      I meant absolutely.

  18. cheetahwolf

    is that the tv? i cant tell, it doesnt say anyone else beside who u see.

    • rallyjr

      it sounds like a game show

    • nyathetexascat

      Not wheel of fortune for sure… (I’m so ramdom)

      • nyathetexascat

        Right, Jepardy!! Forgot about it

  19. The Wolf Kin

    King looks like he actually had to THINK about it for a second. If King seriously had to THINK about asking Bino for help, you know he has a problem on his hands.

    Also, Sasha is hilarious.

  20. efhosci

    Sasha watches… JEOPARDY? My mind is completely blown!

    • Valerio

      …Or is ‘Jeopardy’ watching her..?

      • nyathetexascat

        In soviet russia TV wathe U! But she is germen… ( isn’t her breed Germen shaperd?)

        • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

          In America, you play Jeopardy.
          In Soviet Russia, Jeopardy play you!

          • spencershot5

            AMERICAN DAD REFERENCE!
            in soviet Russia CAR DRIVE YOU!

    • Xane

      Maybe she just likes the theme song. ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫

      • Valerio

        “…Our love’s in jeopardy, babe, ohh-oo-oo…”

  21. rallyjr

    alt text: Oh! What are the Hostess snack foods?!

  22. oddly placed husky

    xD i love sasha! she’s such a fun character.. i hope he goes to daisy! she needs some air time. i would be totally thrown for a loop if she is actually coherent and says and offers more than her name x3

    • nyathetexascat

      It could be the first time that daisy actualy says more than ‘Hi I’m daisy’

      • Warp

        “Hi, I’m Daisy!”
        …later…
        “Hi, I’m Daisy!”
        …later again…
        “Hi, I’m Daisy!”
        …later still…
        “Who are you?” “Oh, no one important.”

        • nyathetexascat

          Lol, Lets Expect daisy

  23. SilentWolfXIII

    Seeing Sasha’s reaction in this situation makes me wonder what would happen if King had tried to call her phone or knock down her door with a battering ram.

    • SilentWolfXIII

      Or C4, that would likewise be interesting to watch

      • volkoseba

        Because King carries C4 and a battering ram in his collar. Along with a cell phone.

        • WingedwolfGirl

          doesn’t everyone? 8D

        • Lookatmyfakename99

          You don’t? :o

          • volkoseba

            I don’t have a collar… or any of the items in question, including a phone.

          • Draven

            I always keep a pound of C4 tucked away in my socks. My phone is a Nokia, so it’s already a battering ram.

        • SilentWolfXIII

          I have a smart phone, and I’m pretty sure there’s an app for battering rams and explosives *opens google*

          • Tailz

            *Facepaw*

  24. DaveedW

    Not so desperate for help, are you King?

  25. John

    Who makes a snowdog at night?

    • Valerio

      My guess is that Max has kicked Bino out of the house in order to spend some private snuggle time with Grape

      • Frank

        Of course! Max could help! Why didn’t anyone think of that?

        • Valerio

          with Rick, you must think the unthinkable!

  26. T-Squared

    How dare you make a cop-out in the first panel! >8c

    The best way in comedy is to do the cop-out in the last panel! :D

  27. volkoseba

    I’d say “Milton ferrets” but something tells me they’d have nothing against the actions being taken by Dutchess.

    • Scruff

      Plus Keene’s still stuck at the Zoo, I think? He’s probably the only one with enough of a sense of responsibility to want to help.

  28. Valerio

    …Should’ve seen it coming, all right.
    Who’s next in line?
    Grape?

    • IceKitsune

      Since her and Peanut live next to Bino Its likely.

  29. GrapeFan

    I have to wonder where Duchess is. Did she give up the chase (very unlikely). A couple of predictions, though: Either she is lurking just off panel, planning a sneak attack or she has just fallen behind. Perhaps if King hurries, he could make it back home withiout Duchess’ detection, but we all know that that would be no fun…

    • Ryufire

      Or Duchess ‘could’ be waiting for King when he shows up at Grape’s house!

      All good things for those who wait…!

    • Warp

      Actually, either that’s Duchess’ paws in the last panel, or King did lose her.

      • GrapeFan

        Nah, that is just the tail end of King jogging off.

  30. Tailz

    -_- well so much for that plan, maybe he’ll get from Sabrina like he did before.

  31. Draven

    Sasha threatened to staple his ears to his eyes, Bino might actualy be the perfect guy to ask.

    • Tailz

      Nah…

  32. Grip the Wolf

    King: I would like to redact my previous statement…

  33. Ryufire

    Maybe King has a better chance of avoiding Duchess’s pursuit is to be buried in the ground by Miles’ Cubs. Poke a large straw up for air. Then the following morning King can just dig himself out!

  34. CoyoteBR

    Fido. It would make sense as it would put King in contact with the K9’s again, and fit in his karma/learning thingee.

  35. Corgiwolf

    I was waiting for Bino to show up! That was perfect xD

    Now, who will he seek out next? You know it’s gonna be good, next one’s Friday… I still vote in the Peanut/Grape camp.

  36. Warp

    Peanut/Grape for presid- I mean helping King, 2012!

  37. 1boredcanadian

    I notice it is taking all of Bino’s concentration to make a snowman or snowdog…Ow! Now my brain hurts again. My point is don’t let anyone distract him or his creation will never be finished.

  38. WingedwolfGirl

    ANYONE! …Except him.

    • Keldor

      To be fair, King was willing to accept help from anyone. I don’t think Bino’s ever helped (intentionally, anyway) anyone else in his life. In fact, the only way he’d likely change would be to help Duchess catch King, in order to spite him. Thus, King’s not exactly turning away help.

  39. Grip the Wolf

    Bino: I sense that I was just dissed by someone…

  40. Tailz

    Sasha seems like one of those types who are super cute but isn’t really smart about the most simple things.

  41. Xuncu

    Hm, asking Sasha…. unfortunetley for King, that has a high chance of compounding the problem.

    • Frank

      Have you considered that maybe King happens to trust Sasha? She did come through on the watch thing

  42. Unnesessary

    Wonder how long it will take for him to realize that Duchess got cold and decided to go home and try again later. I could see him going to Grape and saying a crazy girl is chasing him and Grape just look around and say “what girl”.

    Either way it would be more likely for him to get help if Peanut opens the door.

    • GrapeFan

      Or…King tries Peanut’s Grape’s house on the pet door they installed, but since the raccoon incident, the Sandwiches have installed a lock and therefore rendering King helpless once again.

  43. Ezhno Pallaton

    Does anyone else feel like this Arc is filler? No offense meant rick, I think its hilarious, but it seems like you’ve been telling the same joke for the past few comics O.o

  44. the fry pwnr

    Bino is the last resort…. predictable

    • silverfang16

      Bino isn’t a resort at all. :P

  45. Dave

    Maybe just a distraction would do? Is Bino purebred? Probably not…

  46. Manga Sam

    just say u were king and bino was your last person who could help u would u ask

  47. Ozimul

    Clearly he’s gonna go ask the tanuki from earlier. IT IS SO OBVIOUS.

  48. Z24

    The lesser of two evils

  49. phosphorus

    i think the “who is aaron burr” refers to “Atlas Shrugged”, but thats just me, i finished the book

    • Dissension

      It does not; Sasha is watching “Jeopardy,” a game show in which the contestants ‘answer’ in the form of a question. Aaron Burr was the third Vice President of the United States and famously killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel.

  50. Draven

    Why is Bino playing in the snow this late anyway?

    • legendario13

      he enjoys the night?

  51. Grip the Wolf

    I think Bino smelled catnip in the last panel…

  52. Erikuto

    It’d be a surprise to see Grape help King despite the fact that Grape threatened King once.

  53. legendario13

    King uses : asking for last resurce
    Destiny : puts a bino in his way
    King uses: ¡#&% No!

    • Frank

      Except that his destiny is currently in the form of a stopwatch in his room

      • Legendario13

        Mmmm… Aha!
        But thats his human form destiny.

  54. spencershot5

    sahas so stupid and isnt binos face more sqre than usual i mean HIS NOES IT WAY TO LONG but regular size of a real dogs but longer than it usualy is

    • Tailz

      Sasha isn’t stupid she just doesn’t know how to solve the most simple tasks. (Don’t make her go “TAKE OFF YOUR COLLAR” mode on you)

  55. Sansash

    Knock knock
    Who’s there?
    Sasha
    Sasha who?
    Sasha fuss over trying to get into the house!

    • Lookatmyfakename99

      Win.

  56. Erikuto

    the last person I’d expect to help King would be Fido since King (i think he still is) afraid of the police dogs.

  57. Valerio

    somehow, Bino in this comic is definitely cute :D

    • Legendario13

      Usually i dont like Bino, but i totally agree with you on this one.

  58. Haru Totets

    I wonder what type of event it would take for King to ask for Bino’s help, or vice versa?

    • Valerio

      King would ask help to Bino only to get Fido off his back.

  59. Jesse James

    Haven’t been reading for the last week.

    Came back and pleasently surprised at how lulz the last three comics have been.

    Poor King can’t get help from anyone.

  60. tomas aldrete

    hehe nice job with the shading, also for some reason bino looks cute!

    • Jesse James

      Agreeing with this!

  61. Tailz

    Speaking of which, did King ever meet Peanut and Grape?

    • silverfang16

      He has met Grape…..kinda. Not Peanut though.

  62. LoneWolf

    King Is awesome

  63. Aenbr

    Took me a second to get the jeopardy reference. Sasha’s hilarious.

  64. spencershot5

    um the alt text says what are hostes snack foods they are little baked goods like mini donuts or lildebies but they are going bakrupt last i herd…suck cuz there so good theyre in most kroger stores and gas stations in the u.s.a.
