    More tummy to rub!

    • LordWorpeltinger

      And this is the Author’s revenge for the earlier year’s NAMEHERE looks buff…
      Yep, He’s debuffing your housepets

    • pb98

      this is the first arc where we see ralph’s eyes
      i did not expect the red eyes but love it

      • Dissension

        No… no, it’s not. We’ve always known Kevin had red eyes – even in his first appearance, they’re visible.

      • pb98

        well it’s the first arc that i see his eyes
        (rude time)
        yeah that’s right eat more doughnuts chubby

  2. Ryu

    Poor ol Kevin! :(

    • Draven

      Diet doughnuts, it’s just not right.

      • Ryu

        Horrible just horrible! Kevin shouldn’t be treated that way ;_; Why do bad foods always taste the best? >.>

        • silverfang16

          Sugar and fat, it’s so right it’s wrong. :’(

          • Kohaku Nightfang

            You know she’s telling him he is too skinny and he needs to eat more right?

          • Kristopher Tiberius Haven

            That doesn’t seem right for his body type though. If he were anorexic then yes I can understand being below 3% is bad, but he is ripped… 3% body fat doesn’t seem like a good number when you are BURNING fat to GAIN muscle.

            Why would he need MORE body fat if he is buff? That doesn’t make sense that being buff and no body fat is bad.

            Anybody explain that one to me?

  3. Jamie

    In the top 5!! Also, just got caught up and why doesn’t anyone first any more. on the subject of the comic, I really like this arc and I can not wait to see where this leads. (Seems a bit unconventional to me.)

    • Xane

      Because not saying “1st” is pretty much the #1 rule here?

      • Jamie

        Ah. Well, it’s only a matter of before my comment gets removed.

      • T-Squared

        I second this for the third time.

      • GarrisonSkunk

        One time I saw the comment number was up to 99 when I was about to post a comment. I ALMOST added “100th Post Woohoo!” to the end of the contribution, but thankfully didn’t.

        Maybe book 4 will be “HOUSEPETS! – Everybody’s Talkin’ About Them!” with Rick drawing a cover of all of our avitars vying for Post #1 position.

        • Raska

          if that’s the case, what would he do with all the different King avatars? Not to mention all the different Peanut avs (those are the two I see most often) You and Argent are pretty lucky in having uncommon ones

        • Raska

          also, why do we vy (vie?) for post #1? Rick always beats us anyways with his Post #0 :P

          • GarrisonSkunk

            He could draw them duplicating the heads and drawing lower bodies to them “Mad Mad Mad Mad World style, almost as if they are mascot costume heads.

          • Raska

            That would definitely be creepifying.

          • GarrisonSkunk

            Rick would make it cute :)

    • Jamie

      I do feel sad foe Kevin… (Why was this arc so short?)

      • T-Squared

        Don’t you mean “four”– I mean, “for”? XD

      • Argent Stonecutter

        It’s short because he’s doing vignettes.

        • i like your hat

          maybe its not over just yet…

        • Jamie


      • Jamie

        *for* I was in a rush.

  4. IceKitsune

    Wow such a terrible diet :P

    • Argent Stonecutter

      If he’s going to be a police officer he better get used to donuts!

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Everybody will want him for a partner on stake outs — “You gonna eat that donut?” “No” “Whoohoo!”

  5. Cristian100n

    Awwww i know how you feel Kevin

  6. bene

    Oy vay :)

  7. Draven

    I thought he was 70% muscle, 10% misc, and 30%tackles.

    • YoyoDude

      Kevin is at least 90% muscle, 20% misc, and 75% tackles.

      • Lunyk Stormdragon

        Your argument, which was obviously supported with clear, concise mathematical proof, must be absolutely true.

        • Draven

          momma always said give at leate 120%

          • Timmie

            You only have 110%. You owe us 10%!!!!!

          • The_Rippy_One

            Momma was a wimp!

    • Ryu

      Seeing Kevin crying….Just priceless! :)

      • cheetahwolf

        “BROOM TO THE FACE!!!!” dont say such things about the toughest dog around.

        • Ryu

          Owies!!!But…now we know he has a softer side! :P

          • i like your hat

            and it comes out mostly when hes eating fattening foods o3o

          • GarrisonSkunk

            Could have been worse for him….he could have accidently eaten a poppyseed covered dog biscuit before the exam :)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Or an Orange Soda.

          • i like your hat

            does any other kind of soda effect them i wonder? like grape or something

  8. Erikuto

    “isn’t it always like the doctor to deliver bad news?” <- alt text

    Seeing as his name is the same as me also makes me feel bad :(

    • Legendario13

      Thanks for the Alt text!

      Dont worry man he’ll be okay

      would a lolli… A lettuce make you feel better?

      • Erikuto

        Yes because I love salads :3

  9. T-Squared


  10. Draven

    Also, Sabrina looks very entertained on the book cover.

    • Draven


      • Draven

        I fail

        • Ryu

          No worries Draven! *Pats* :P

          • GarrisonSkunk

            Wonder how Sabrina WOULD have reacted? After all, she did/does date Fido, so she’s not exactly against the dog/cat thing. If she had been there that night at the dog party….

            (Tarot is shocked to see Sabrina staring at King)
            Tarot: “You DO realize he’s a human, don’t you?”
            Sabrina: “Eh….nobody’s perfect.” :)

          • GarrisonSkunk

            And then to top it off, she actually makes the emoticon appear next to her for a few seconds, further infuriating Tarot/Dragon, just cause she can.

    • John willow

      That’s daisy

      • John willow

        Darn…you were too fast for me…epic fail!!!

        • Draven

          It’s a great big fail party! Anyone else care to join?

          • Legendario13

            If its a party im on!

          • RJ

            M3 2!

    • Gabe23

      Tipsy King is such a win, and Sasha looks quite entertained

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Alt Text for the Book Cover – EVERYBODY GET NAKED!

        • Xane

          I’m disappointed Rick didn’t actually use that for the title like he said he would way back when. ;)

          • GarrisonSkunk

            He probably felt the line was too similar to the first book’s “Are Naked All The Time”.

      • The_Rippy_One

        I approve of this cover~! Naked Tipsy King~! <3

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Daisy too. They may not know much, but they know what they like.

  11. *whitefang*

    Poor Kevin , I’d do the something, go home and eat doughnuts :’(

  12. xhunterko

    Awww, poor Kevin.

    • Gabe23

      Yeah … I mean … how could you live a couple of weeks eating … tasty food

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Bad cop, no donut

  13. Lunyk Stormdragon

    Is anyone else planning on going on createspace and buyin the book right now?

  14. Erikuto

    Also the page title “A winner is you” sounds kinda like a meme………

    • GarrisonSkunk

      I was wondering if Rick was announcing some kind of contest for autographed copies of the new book with that, but I guess not.

  15. Elwood Blutarsky

    Donut onto Others, more donut places need to be named after Bible verses.

    • John willow

      How about Thou Shalt Not Dunk

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        “…Thou shalt Dunk Three times, and the number of the Dunking shall be Three. Thou shalt not Dunk Five times, nor shalt thou Dunk Two times, excepting that thee then proceed on to Three. Five is right out.”

        • Raptor

          Woo, Monty Python reference!
          …I think…

    • Maxmice

      Couldn’t agree more

  16. Raska

    *snickers* “My Condolences” Fido you’re awesome. Also *brain breaks* King is naked…

  17. cheetahwolf

    it would be ironic next time he goes to the vet that he has to much fat.

    • Jamie

      I am going to call you on that.

  18. jeromeamon

    Wait, so his under weight or overweight, I don’t understand If his over weight how is he so active? If not I understand the donughts now.

    • John willow

      Basically he is in far too healthy, he needs 2.5 percent more body fat to be in perfect shape

      • holmebrian

        technically if you are between 2.5-3.0% it should be fine but thinking about how much people weigh that really is a low number and its really hard to get to.

    • dibs

      okay, that was just hilarious… and nice touch with the donuts feeling wrong, i like the irony

  19. John willow

    And so ends another great mini arc. I will definitely order book 3 later today. Seeing this arc has really cheered me up, my own dog had to be put down yesterday and watching kevin cry over donuts reminds me of how she would wolf down anything that came her way. Thank you rick, although you could never have known.

    RIP Jasmine…you wonderful, stinky pooch

  20. Snowmon

    Ooh, the bitter sweet Irony… but mostly sweet.

    Now… Where’s THAT doctor when you need them. My grandfather’s a skinny as a Grandaddy longlegs and his doc’s telling him to lose weight.

  21. Foxy

    OMG That’s soooooo cute

  22. Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

    “Donut Unto Others.” Sounds tasty.

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Another H*R reference to go with “Tish You!”. Wouldn’t it be nice if Free Country USA turned out to be right next to Babylon Gardens allowing for a crossover?

  23. The Maverick Man

    Oh now, now you have to eat junk food

  24. Ryu

    Kevin, defeat can be more instructive than victory! :3

  25. GarrisonSkunk

    And I suppose Spo’s thinking something along the lines of “Wow! Cop eats donut! Stop the presses!”

  26. anon_omis

    Why can’t I have this problem? I live next to a McDonalds for crying out loud!!!

  27. Kaiserbix

    I just realize til now that kevin was drawn with a female waistline (most marked in the last strip) O_o. just as a curious fact don’t take me wrong. hehe

  28. Lykaios

    i know how he feels… i applied to join the army… my BMI was too low… i need to gain 10kg before i can join the army… i hate being tall sometimes

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Be careful. I used to be like that, and got used to eating like a horse and not putting anything on, and didn’t notice when my metabolism flicked over from “teenager” to “adult” in my ’20s until I was like “where did this belly come from?”

  29. kuisbright

    Daww! Kevin is so cute <3

  30. RedDwarfIV

    World’s smallest violin, Kevin.

  31. Tommy

    “Everybody get naked” I love the fact that you made king look like hes a stripper dancing LOL

    • GarrisonSkunk

      And the look of disgust on Tarot’s face is perfect. Oddly enough, While Tarot and Sasha are looking at King, Daisy seems more interested in King’s collar swinging around rather than in King himself.

      • The Maverick Man

        She must have been distracted by the shiny

        • RJ

          most definitely.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      King definitely has the mooooves.

  32. Sniperdeathangel

    King won’t remember a thing in The morning

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Good thing he’ll have a fox statue to remind him of it.

  33. Sniperdeathangel

    Isn’t king dating bialy?!

  34. Sniperdeathangel

    What will she think!?

  35. Grip Moonwolf

    Best. Prescription. EVER!

  36. Argent Stonecutter

    Oh, yes, “Hooray, more King”. :)

  37. Sniperdeathangel

    Indeed king is awesome

  38. Sniperdeathangel

    But what would she think if she found out about that party

  39. Kakurady

    Reminds of my last checkup with the doctor – she said I had too much iron in my blood, and I should stop eating red meat, like beef. Huh?

    This is after growing up in a country where iron deficiency (leads to low blood oxygen) is a widely publicized problem.

  40. SkyRover

    Those eyes…are Killing me with cuteness….!

  41. Tegs

    Love Kevin’s face in last panel! Poor guy xD

  42. FerreTrip

    Kevin, you’re not even going to see a difference.

    Also, being a fatfur, I find this hilarious X3

  43. Sniperdeathangel

    I no think so

  44. DJ Nightfire

    it’s ok Kevin! you are still my Hero!

    • Sniperdeathangel

      He’s just eating donuts

      • holmebrian

        im guessing hes never eaten anything un healthy in his life thats why hes crying

        • Sniperdeathangel

          Ya but still

  45. JWJ

    is it just me or is Kevin the only person with red eyes?

    • Sniperdeathangel

      I’ve noticed that to

    • Kaiserbix

      Great kitsune has red eyes too

      • JWJ

        oh your right

        • GarrisonSkunk

          You don’t suppose Kevin therefore is Great Kitsune’s avit — Nah, silly thought that.

          • Kaiserbix

            I don’t think so, i’ve never played D&D but i think kitsune it’s kind of a moderator more than a player, so he doesn’t need it. Also Tarot and Spirit dragon have different eye color..

          • Raska

            however, DMs /can/ and sometimes /do/ have characters of their own in a campaign.

          • GarrisonSkunk

            And to bring it back to the comic….maybe GK promised he’d give Kevin the super muscled body in exchange for his co-operation. Also Kevin’s grin in panel two looks alot like GK’s grin in the “Dragon loves a low order being” panel.

            Just sayin’

  46. Xander

    Love that “donut unto to others” cracked me up xD

  47. Argent Stonecutter

    Could be worse. If he was human, he’d need to be 4-6 percent!

  48. illeatyourself

    Well this must be awkward for him! XD There’s just one thing he can’t win at: swimming. Why? WITHOUT FAT, YOU DON’T FLOAT. True fact.

    • illeatyourself

      Well, not unless you also have a lack of muscle. With his kind of muscle, he needs fat or he sinks.

  49. D-Rock

    Wow, that’s low. Seems like an excercise addict.
    Now don’t overdo the solution!

  50. Loner

    why can’t this be my problem!!!

  51. John willow

    Who’s up for making more bible references into snack brands

    Samson and Deli-lah
    Cane and Maple

    • John willow

      On the sixth day, god said “let there be a river of jam to soak the surface of our rounded snack item”, and so god made a river of jam, and he saw that it was GGGGooooooddd!!!”

  52. thatoneguy


  53. GarrisonSkunk

    I wonder who’s up next in the mini-arc marathon? Grape and Max to balance Tarot and Peanut’s arc? Joey and Squeak? Sabrina? Jill Sandwich? The continuing adventures of Tiger, Marvin and the Table? The TV? Someone new? Tune in Monday Morning…Same Rick Time….Same Rick Channel….

    • John willow

      I would love it to be either the wolves or Res

  54. ProjectTyrasa

    once again i have caught up and must wait curse you insomnia

  55. Erikuto

    we need a new housepets character that is obessed with lemonade……. :3

  56. i like your hat

    if ti feels wrong then your eating it wrong try eating it a different way :P

  57. Draven

    He should stop drinking whole milk if his body fat percentage is off.

  58. Tezarro

    The 3rd book cover disturbs me……in a the right ways……

  59. Jamie

    1. How do know so much about animals?
    2. How do you manage to make clever puns out of regular household items?
    3. You can easily stop the “first” spam by posting first directly after you post the comic. (Try copy-pasting.)
    4.Where can I get your other books? (Like your short story.)
    5. Like I said, I am new here and now know the rules of commenting. (Are they anything like the rules of the internet?> http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/rules-of-the-internet )
    6. Why can’t I post on older comics?
    7. I have no more questions or comments (Sorry if I broke any rules.) LUCKY 7 FTW!

  60. Draven

    I’ve been reading this wrong the whole time, it just hit me that Kevin is too thin and needs to gain weight.

    • Jamie

      That’s what the doctor said.
