Yup they are gonna be on Forbes rich list lol!
Alt Text: GYOLD!
XD that funny right there
That’s right, gold! Nuggets! Boullion! Karats! BARS!!
Gold! GOLD!! GOOOOLLD!!!
It seems this adventure will have a GOLDEN ending
Keene already is. He doesn’t need the gold, I guess he just wants the shinies.
but Karishad already called dibs
KARISHAD CALLED THE SHINIES!
I thought I said no dibs!
I like that Daryl’s using Zach’s paw as a light source. = P
And that Zach is using his free paw to keep his hat on while upsidedown.
Who wouldn’t? That’s an awesome biretta.
he must have only just started using his foot for light because sooner or later he’ll pass out because of the blood rushing to his head
So that’s why people keeps cutting rabbit feet and putting them on necklaces: Cheap lightsources!
I wonder if he recognizes Pete from his dreams? That can’t be fun hanging from his leg and hearing a soul deadening voice at the same time.
And being pointed directly at Keene’s tail end.
He might have thought that’s where the soul-deadening voice was coming from.
An illuminated sole.
Or would that be an enlightened sole?
Light on his foot.
Its like I hear a Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler’s voice for Pete!
i’d go with Adam Sandler when he does his deep voice
Avery Brooks (Benjamin Sisko in DS9)?
Time to fight the final boss.
A Final Fantasy boss theme just sounded from out of nowhere! :3
Nahh, I think more Dragon Quest IX Music. There’s a lot of dungeons and mysterious places and ominous voices in that game.
Oh boy is Pete !!! This is or very very good or very very bad
Fun for us, bad for them.
Grab Some Popcorn and Enjoy Fellas
Talk about loot drop!
Oh Snap!!! There on for it now : O
Foolish mortals, thou’dst best begone hence thee find thyself in… Ye Olde Comfy Chair!
ygotas yami yugi – “why is he talking like that…is there something wrong with him?”
Too bad Rick didn’t make this a double strip….It would have been cool to see Keene and/or Kari doing a Scrooge McDuck dive into the pile of shineys.
Oh yeah that would be so awesome! XD
I’d find it funny if they tried and then discovered how solid the gold is.
I can think of a few boss themes right now.
Yep, they’re dead
Sabrina and Daryl are the only potential avatars here. Or maybe Karishad. Keene and Zach are definitely surplus to requirements.
i dont think that Daryl counts as a dog and Sabrina is protected by dragon. He’s probably not going to choose Keene because he’s use the Milton family for his needs before; plus even if he did he would be able to use Keene because he’s always working. I think that Pete would want a
scared-of-his -own-shadow rabbit for his avatar. Karishad….. well i’m not sure but i think Karishad is the Kitsunes avatar…. (my opinion)
Wolves and dogs are the same species, Canis Lupus. Wolf is the Lupus subspecies, dog is the Familiaris subspecies.
What matters are The Rules. Since The Rules specify dogs and cats only:
… wolves are not permitted. It must be a canid commonly classed as a dog, not a near-dog or almost-dog. And technically, keep in mind, Pete *could* take Sabrina if both parties were willing (Dragon already has an avatar), but it’s unlikely she’d go for it.
That doesn’t specify it’s a domesticated dog. There’s lots of wild dogs, including wolves. Not to mention wild cats. How about one of the bengal tigers from the zoo?
The thing is when people say Dog or Cat almost all of the time they are talking about Domesticated Dogs or Cats. So its pretty logical to assume that it means that. Also Pete likely would have gone after one of the Wolves by now if that was the case.
When people say “dog” they generally don’t mean “human turned into a dog” either.
How would he have gone after a wolf? He can’t manifest on Earth any more. He’d have to trick one into his temple.
Hey, wait a second…
Ok one that is not a thing that ever happens and two Joel was turned into a Dog Except that Dragon said it the rules were “Strictly Dogs or Cats” if you can include Wolves and Foxes and what not in terms of Dogs or Cats its not in anyway a Strict rule. Wolves while Canine are not in anyway Dogs and I know of absolutely nobody who would consider them as such.
If you wanted to include Wolves and stuff in it the rule should have been Strictly Feline or Canine which would include them. Though looking at that strip again Pete did try to lie (or something, I still don’t get what the heck he was trying to do or why) about Dragon moving the Temple; so maybe Dragon lied as well or is just an idiot who didn’t understand the rules she agreed to.
and is now considered a dog for all intents and purposes (put that after Joel was turned into a dog )
Wolves are “strictly dogs”. Dogs are domesticated wolves. They’re not just “other canines” like jackals or cape hunting dogs, they’re the same species.
Also “strict” isn’t a modifier on “dogs and cats”, it’s a modifier on “the rules”.
I have suggested that Karishad is the kitsune myself. I have also suggested he might be with the dragon because he has green eyes and is a bit of a wildcard.
No they’re toons so they can’t die, they just vanish from reality
Wrong movie! = P
If they’re playing “Toon” they “fall down go boom” and lose a turn.
I wonder what that scroll is in the foreground.
Jinkees! Garrison you found the next clue
Someone must’ve given Pete an IOU.
What does Maxwell have to do with this?
zach has realized that the lightest way to be on your feet, is to not be on them.
they may yet get out of this alive, after all, daryl does have his lucky rabbits foot
Just commenting on a possible character consistency problem. Sabrina near the beginning of this comic strip is a pacifist but she acts cruelly toward her ex boyfriend Max during the haunted house strip and she assisted in the killing of gargoyles.
Excuse me assisted in the killing of gargoyles in this arc.
I don’t know if cruel is the word…she was just giving him what he was dishing out to the others. After all, she boldfaced DON’T HURT HIM.
Don’t forget she threatened to have Fido erased from existance if he didn’t help save King’s watch/soul. That’s about as cold as you can get.
Im not sure if she was a pacifist as much as she was a friend to those who couldn’t defend themselves. The Gargoyles, Max and Fido could, so she could side against them..
By any chance you were going to write something else… but Sabrina had one of those “I will make never born” moments and you changed your mind
I /still/ love that threatened Ret Gone moment of her’s. “…I will make you never born”
“Don’t you mean ‘/wish/ you were never born’ ?”
She’s never said she was a pacifist, she’s just said she doesn’t want to kill little vermin creatures like mice and moles. Dogs and Cats, I imagine, are fair game. Especially during duck season…. er… I mean rabbit season… I mean…
Where did Sabrina ever say she was a pacifist? Please have your facts in order before you step to the table.
Lmbo at the last panel. I wonder who is behind the voice though?
Who’s got a black talk balloon, and is is bound to this temple? Why, it’s Pete!
And if you still had any doubts, there’s that convenient list of who ‘appears’ in the current comic.
And that would be below the title and the person in question is the fourth from left to right and third from right to left
I thought he was two UP from the bottom…
Maybe its Tarot holodecking the form of Pete…..
I actually figured that already. Lol, it’s kind of hard to give a mysterious classic Sherlock feeling when you’re limited to text. Thanks for confusing me and answering my question though haha.
not even the elements of harmony can save them at this point….but id bet they wouldmt say no to a pinkie song
This isn’t MLP.
“I’ll be a dingo’s baby!” Well, he’s not a monkey’s uncle, and he’s definitely a son of a charming young woman, so that makes sense.
In some strange way… it does!
Dungeon boss incoming!
[Insert epic boss battle soundtrack here]
Poor Zach *chuckles*
yeah poor Zach because when Daryl heard the voice he probably dropped him on his head while Daryl either runs away or curls up into fetal position.
well i would say poor Daryl and Zach because even though thats not a big fall he its still gonna hurt
Oh so true there.
I like to think that a soul-deadening voice would make a great addition to a barbershop quartet.
Think of what Cerberus could do with three heads.
then they would only need one more person… maybe thats what Pete did with her when they were dating.
Pete don’t ruin this! There are too many shinies to be distracted by important things.
Yeh, that shadow in the background in panels 3 and 4, that’s probably NOT daryl’s.
Aw, crud, Pete…Welp, this IS his domain…
Sabrina – my favorite character of this arc. “Sorry punkin. Please pay attention to the soul-deadening voice”
Loved that, too! Let the Sabrina/Keene shipping commence!
After the last use of “punkin” in this comic (http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/10/28/punkin/) I’m not sure it counts as a term of endearment
No chemistry there at all.
100% agreed. And I found funny how Keene thinks he is the leader of the party is like=
Keene: “But I paid you …”
Sabrina: “And do you think that gives you power over me ?”
Let’s not, because it’s not happening.
When it comes to a Sabrina/Keene pairing, I think Sabrina’s valentine’s day card says it best:
“Sorry, I’m way out of your league…but just for today I’ll hang around and impress your friends”
I know ! I love her coolness during all the story arc, she´s like “yep, I totally expected that”
Oh Crabs! mega-boss battle! Roll for Initiative!
Don’t forget pentuploons.
Heptuploons! Nonuploons! Dodecuploons! Are Octuploons the same as pieces o’ eight?
I think a piece of eight is an eighth of a Ploon (Monuploon).
[like Googleplex but for gold xD]
Now you’re getting all looney ploons.
Wait, did Sabrina just talk like she’s from Gorgia or something?
Either there going to fight Pete or maybe a new character so they can get all of that treasure.
purple is a fruit! and they just entered the boss fight cue epic music!
Hey as long as the fox isnt going to break out into a song and dance (the horror! oh the traumatic musical number!) I’m quite happy for the soul deadening voice to continue speaking hahahaha
Honestly, worried about Sabrina. Pete still doesn’t have an avatar, and here is a good candidate. I wonder if it’s possible if Sabrina has some resentment toward Dragon. The Trial in Heaven seemed to imply it was because of Dragon that she left Max for Fido. Random guess, don’t think she’ll do that, and I hope so, too.
I wouldnt be worried about her, she´s Dragons Team so Dragons is watching her back. I would be more concern about Karishad, he is perfectly eligible for an avatar (He is a canine and since he is with Keene he is a Housepet) and he had been already into the temple.
So my conspiracy theory is: Karishad is already Pete´s avatar
Karishad would probably Chuck Norris the stuffing out of Pete before being tricked into becoming his avatar!
I’ve always seen Karishad as more of a Groucho Marx than a Chuck Norris.
Hmm, fox versus Griffin in an intellectual battle?…Fox.
Fox Mulder vs. Rick Griffin?
okey, that shadow looks suspicius..
it almost looks like another ferret shadow speaking with petes voice.. D:
Seeing how Pete is Tagged in this, This Ought ta be good
This oughta be funny and/or epic. Hopefully epic. >:D
CAREFUL SOUL-DEADENING VOICE! I HAVE A FOOT AND I’M NOT AFRAID TO USE IT!
Did Zack pass out from the wall opening up?
lol, the wolf is holding him
can’t wait to see wat pete has to say
Will they take Pete as seriously when they get a good look at him?
