At Least I’m Gonna Say That I Tried

    Lets hope Bailey and King can Still have a wonderful Christmas. ;)

    • Ryu

      Mistletoe never fails XD Come on King don’t keep her waiting! ^^

      • Soren

        They need to get grape! Remember, in a guest strip, Grape promised Peanut ONE kiss under the mistletoe.

        • LeaahWulf

          That would be SSOOOO cute.

          I wonder what the Christmas strip is going to be.

          They should have one of the panels be Grape and Peanut staring at each other under the mistletoe.

    • joshi

      bailey is happy :D

      • nightarix

        or at least entertained

  2. flaremaster

    uh oh, RUN KING :D

  3. Gabe23

    Too many randomness in this strip … soooo good !

    • Duck'n

      You mean just the right amount of randomness right? Seeing so many characters interacting so seamlessly in one strip, C’mon Rick how’d you know what i wanted for christmas!?

      • 4RCH4NG3L

        that was quick for new avatar…

      • Silly Zealot

        He’s got psychic powers! How else do you think he gets so many rickyologists?

        • i like your hat

          wait when did joey get a blue collar and goggles? not complain-in just curious >.>

        • i like your hat

          on a side note, to me it makes him look like the little ninjas-in-training off of Naruto, you now with the big goofy goggles, that made me smile to myself. :D

          • Legendario13

            Tamer Joey style

  4. leaffly

    I have so many questions! But I’ll say this: KISS KISS KISS!!!

    • Silly Zealot

      Someone on the comments did predict there would be mistletoe! Oooh this is gonna be akward.
      I also have a question myself, how are they going to celebrate christmass if the world ends today?

      • Bücherdrache

        The world doesnt end today
        Its mayan Sylvester

        • RedDwarfIV

          More like the Mayan Y2K problem. They have some strange base system which means they have a finite amount of numbers, which means they can have only a finite number of dates on a calendar.

          Like how Y2K was caused by “What happens when 99 goes to 00? They aren’t programmed to do that.” What did we do to fix it? We upgraded systems so they did go back to 00. Same with the Mayan calendar. 21st December 2012 is the end of this cycle. The new cycle starts on the 22nd.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It depends on how you calculate the Long Count, the end could be in 4450-something.

          • Kat_Halsey

            THANK YOU! NOW ALL YOU APOCALYPSE BELIEVERS CAN SHUT UP!

          • Silly Zealot

            Well I, for one, still want my end of the world. c’mon, give the end of the world! And I’m still waiting for the world to be like in the Jetsons since the 1st of january of the 2000!

          • Frank

            It depends on how you define the end of the world. If you want a neutrino storm from The Sun, we already had that. In March. Remember how strange last winter was? And how many inexplicable power outages occurred? So much the Emmerich film.

          • Multani Raynz

            if you want to get technical, the world as we know it ends everyday, even if it’s only a minor fluctuation of yesterday it is still different and there by wholly not the day before. so the world as we knew it is irrevocably gone and replaced by what we now know

          • Silly Zealot

            You have spoken….. wisely!

        • Gcjiff

          The world cant end my bill collectors wont allow it

        • CWFang

          how do you know the world hasnt already ended we just dont relize it yet?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Technically, the world ended in 1996. October or September, depending on how you deal with the Gregorian/Julian calendar thing.

          • Silly Zealot

            Was it in june? I know of a story where the world changed (not ended) on june 1996.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Well, the world was created Sunday, 23 October 4004 BC, so after three ages of 2000 years each, that means the end comes 23rd October and, let’s check on a Julian/Gregorian calculator… sorry, it comes out November 5. The world ended November 5th, 1996, and everything since then is some kind of illusion.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Unless I got the calculation backwards, in which case it was September 21st.

  5. Draven

    This one is colorful :D

    • leaffly

      That I notice! So colorful!!! *^*
      Notice how the collars match their eyes! And Joey is blue now!

      • Silly Zealot

        And our german shepard police dog got changed too!

        • Arjay

          Didn’t even realize that was Ralph without his sunglasses on XD

        • joshi

          he looks naked whithout them

    • Marco

      Now what we need to see is collectable cards of each of the colorful panels, plus each character and info! :D

      • Silly Zealot

        Joey
        Description: Dork.
        Signed, the faire painting artist.

      • brent

        i would love that

    • Gabe23

      The new desings are still amusing me, they´re all amazing

  6. Taylor

    THAT’S IT! >:(

    • Legendario13

      You dont likey?

  7. volkoseba

    *Poof*
    King gets turned into a frog.

    • volkoseba

      Cliché magic rules say true love’s first kiss changes him back to a human though… that would be awkward.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Who says it’s his first kiss? They snuggled on the farm!

        • Silly Zealot

          Why must you remind us?!

        • volkoseba

          Snuggling is not the same as kissing.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Snuggling without kissing is like steak without horseradish.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Or carrion without offal.

          • volkoseba

            I normally eat my steak without condiments…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            SHUN!

          • volkoseba

            What? A nice juicy steak doesn’t need anything. (If it’s cooked to the point that it’s dry as a bone, then you need steak sauce. I never need steak sauce if I cooked the steak.)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Yeh, and I bet you eat carrion without offal too.

          • volkoseba

            Offal makes it awful ;)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            What kind of dog are you, anyway?

          • volkoseba

            …says the ferret who uses horseradish.

          • aicivilwar

            Personally, I’m not that big on steak, but I do enjoy a good Prime Rib with something similar to soy sauce.

      • Shadowcatcher

        Either that, or Bailey gets turned into a human. That would be a jerk move on Pete’s part.

        • Silly Zealot

          Dear God! My braiiiiiiiin!!!!!

        • aicivilwar

          What if Bailey and King were BOTH human to begin with, and they BOTH turned back? Talk about JoeKing having a mind implosion.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Or makes him a dog permanently

      • nightarix

        eh he’s probably accepted that there’s no way back(which would make this the perfect time to change him back for pete or break them up)

      • Frank

        But that wouldn’t be nearly as spectacular!

        …Except maybe for a change in his pocket watch

        • aicivilwar

          No offense intended, but do you use multiple accounts to have your avatar show different expressions? If so, do you use a different email account for each one, or how do you do it?

          • Multani Raynz

            Ask not the methods of his awesomeness

  8. Xane

    Aww, I think maybe that proves that she’s not really furious with him anymore.

    • Marco

      She recovered rather quickly! Good for Bailey she needed some fun time with King!

    • Gabe23

      The lack of red eyes is always a good sign, and the smile helps a lot too

    • RedDwarfIV

      There’s also that this strip is clearly intended as being played for laughs.

      It might not be canon/

      • Silly Zealot

        Of course it’s canon! It’s in the Bible an’ all! Haven’t you read the book Deuteronomy? Yes? What? It’s not there?
        Ok nevermind, it’s not canon.

  9. D-Rock

    Wow, everyone really was invited to this party.
    Liking the change in appearance in Joey and Ralph.

    • DoWatNow

      I’m not really a fan of the new Ralph, but hey, I wasn’t a fan of the new style when it first came out, but now it’s kinda grown on me. Also, OH THANK GOD JOEY’S CREEPY FRIENDS AREN’T HERE…or even Bino. But I’m loving Joey’s new look. ^^

      • killwithyourawesome

        bino’s currently in the emergency room

        • Kat_Halsey

          Thank god for that.

          • ToaSoul

            how is that a thank god moment…

          • Silly Zealot

            I miss Ralph’s googles. :(
            And, if everyone got invited, WHY WASN’T I?! Grrr, oh, grrrr.

          • killwithyourawesome

            i think u should thank baily

          • Multani Raynz

            Yes,Binos’ presence alone would ruin everyone else’s fun

        • Dissension

          Still?! The emergency department is for stabilizing treatment leading to discharge or longer-term hospitalization…

          • Silly Zealot

            He was hitted pretty hard, after all…

          • Dissension

            That’d result in hospitalization. Emergency rooms don’t keep patients any longer than necessary, and certainly not for the several days that passed between Bino being punched and the party.

          • killwithyourawesome

            as far as i can tell it looked like a day,
            one of us may be experiencing time subjectively

        • Duck'n

          Alright bring the patient in. Oh it’s Bino again…. what happened this time?

  10. Reddink

    I’ve been in that situation before.

  11. IceKitsune

    Well shes happy about the Mistletoe that’s a good sign I guess. Also Ralphs muzzle looks like its to long or something to me.

    • Silly Zealot

      Lost the dark brown all over! Why?

    • Nohbody

      It’s not the length, but the height. The brown not going up onto his cheeks like it used to is probably also throwing you off (it is me).

      http://www.housepetscomic.com/2011/10/05/always-the-one-you-least-suspect/ for a peek at the old style of Sgt. Ralph

      • IceKitsune

        I think you might be right on that.

      • Silly Zealot

        Agreed.

      • Zzzzzx

        For a moment there, thought Ralph was someone else.

  12. Marco

    KING YOU CAN DO IT KISS HER!!! XD

    • WaffleIron

      YOU CAN DO IT, CHAMP! Ugh….I miss Joey’s friends.

  13. Tarka

    Ralph looks quite a different colour… or maybe I’m just not used to seeing him without his police vest on.

    New collar on Joey; it looks nice.

    Daisy’s as eccentric as ever…

    And those raccoons. Smile and wave, boys. Smile and wave.

    • Big Fan

      My first thought at the raccoons was “These aren’t the droids your looking for.”

      Joey’s collar is cool, yeah, but I’m really loving the goggles. 8-)

      • Xane

        Who could begrudge such cute little ringtails some Christmas treats?

        Are those Digimon goggles?

        • Silly Zealot

          I think so! gotta catch them a- no wait…

  14. YoyoDude

    Oh my goodness, now that Daisy has that white poof on her chest, she looks just like my old dog, Maddock. We had to put him to sleep recently. I had always compared the two and now it’s like one and one. Except the whole girl part. Their vocabulary is pretty similar though.

    • Silly Zealot

      Poor doggy. :(
      And yeah, it seems old age is making Daisy grow white hair.

    • Duck'n

      Is it just me or do y’all get the eerie stalker vibe from when daisy drops from the ceiling?

      • LeaahWulf

        Mow that I think about it, it sorta does

        • LeaahWulf

          *Now

      • Multani Raynz

        I get that feeling WHENEVER she pops up (or down, as the case may be)

  15. randomguy45

    Never a dull moment

  16. MountainSocks

    Joey is wearing goggles now. YES!!!!!

    • Tarka

      I did not notice that. All I noticed was a new collar.
      Joey just gained +10 awesomeness points for those sweet goggles.

      • Silly Zealot

        Is it me or those googles look too small for Joey’s eyes?

        • tanglestalker909

          They’re probably just for decoration

        • Argent Stonecutter

          They’re cartoon characters. When they put the goggles on, their eyes shrink to fit them.

    • Gabe23

      I think he´s learnig from his oldest brother, that glasses gives you style

      • Duck'n

        Even if the aforementioned “glasses” are replaced with ridiculously cool goggles!!

  17. Ratros

    Is that Raccoon trying to do the Jedi mind trick?

    • Tarka

      More like the Penguin Mind Trick. X3

      • Koranos

        The racoon’s statement makes me think of the madagascar penguins when they said the same thing.

        • m is for wolf

          I think that’s intentional.

  18. Zaitsev

    Who could call the Kitsune statue tacky?

    • Silly Zealot

      Dunno, the individuals in question dissapeared. And at the same time several puddles showed up at the party…

      • aicivilwar

        Puddles?

    • Verp

      Someone with taste would call it tacky.

  19. Txcat

    Where is Joey’s green collar?

    • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

      That’s what I was thinking too!

    • Gabe23

      Well, you know how fashion works … In Paris blue is the new green

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      It looks like the dog brothers all have different ones now. Fido’s now orange, Bino kept green and Joey’s switched to blue.

  20. Argent Stonecutter

    Joey is more sensible than Squeak!

  21. Goldenlord

    Ha, yess, I knew the title was gonna be something like this. Also, liking all the new character designs.

    • Silly Zealot

      Wonder if we will meet NEW characters during this party.

      • LeaahWulf

        Yeh, but it takes awhile to update the “Cast”. HE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE BAILEY ON YET!!!!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Unlikely, this is a warmup arc.

  22. Gabe23

    NO, I have NOT seen Fido around here, and I have definitely no clue what is he doing or where … stop pressuring me ! *runs away*

    • xhunterko

      Fido? Who’s Fido? I know not of this Fido you speak. There are hundreds of dogs named Fido. Can you be more specific? And define wierd?

      • DoWatNow

        I swear, man, I don’t know the guy! I mean, maybe in obedience school….I WANT MY LAWYER! HELP! HELP! I’M BEING REPRESSED!

        • Silly Zealot

          He’s over there in the- mmmmph “gets dragged away”

        • Duck'n

          Ooooh you mean THAT Fido! Nah i haven’t seen him. OK even if i did he’s definately not hiding in the clo-ahgggh! -YoinK-

          • LeaahWulf

            I think he’s in the kitchen… No, the bathroom… Wait! NO! DON”T! HE… ’s NOT… I… N THE CL… OSET! *runs for it*

  23. Ryu

    Finally, now that we them all happy again, the world didn’t end! *Phew* :3

    • LeaahWulf

      Even though I don’t believe in this mumbo jumbo, isn’t the world supposed to end at noon or the 21st hour?

      • Silly Zealot

        Not really, still, the day ain’t over yet, true! Beware the idus of may!

  24. xhunterko

    Joey and Spo would make an awesome duo.

    • xhunterko

      Oh. Woops! My bad! Didn’t see the Squeak tag.

    • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

      But Fido has Spo and Joey has Squeak.

      • aicivilwar

        I don’t think you can say “has” the same way between those four characters…

  25. Raska

    And the alt text answers all our questions of why they didn’t just go to King’s room! Alt Text : ” King’s room is currently being taken up by people critiquing how tacky of a party ornament his statue is “

  26. Snowmon89

    Shah-lalalalala don’t be scared! You’ve got to be prepared Go on and Kiss the Girl.

  27. valerio

    I fear this is NOT going to end up with kiss. ;(
    And lol, so like Ralph to keep calling him OFFICER even on their time off.

    • Marco

      Sssssssh Valerio Don’t jinx it! >w<

      • Valerio

        believe me, Marco, I am not enjoying it, but I see that FRIEND ZONE sign flashing like a miniature sun. And that would be the *best* outcome…

        • LeaahWulf

          The height difference can sometimes fool you.

          But in this case, how Bailey reacted to the missletoe was sorta a giveaway.

          I think if they do kiss Bailey will just kiss King on the cheek.

          • Valerio

            cheek kiss = friend zone

          • Silly Zealot

            I’d settle for it! The only time I manage to leave the friend zone is when I enter enemy field.

          • LeaahWulf

            Still, King was never in the “Friend Zone”, he doesn’ know what it feels like. He’s probably going to be devistated if it happens.

  28. Kaiserbix

    Joey has more attitude now :D

  29. CHAOKOCartoons

    well, its 10:39 over here in California… and 12:something over where Rick is… are you a ghost Rick? :) Oh yeah, KING LOCK YOUR DOOR BEFORE THE PARTY STARTS NEXT TIME!

    • Koranos

      If he did that, how would he get back in, and he’d have to come out at some point or he’d have missed bailey.

      • aicivilwar

        He could lock the door with a key or a keycard, and when he’s away he could keep the key in the pocket in his collar.

        …or, his King chess piece attached to his collar could BE a key, like the little boat was in National Treasure.

  30. Khazix

    What, no comment about the end of the world?

    • Silly Zealot

      There are, my friend! There are!
      I was actually expecting a sudden cataclysm in which several transdimensional portals opened throughout the world, with at least one of which leading to the housepets! universe (Ok, I wasn’t expecting that, but it would be really neat!).

  31. sevitian

    Ahh the good old jedi mind trick in panel 3. works every time :)

    • Koranos

      Is that panel 3? It’s hard to tell whether it’s panel 3 or panel 2.

  32. The Maverick Man

    Blue collar?

  33. gp

    “but the paws!” What’s the mowsie gonna given the freedom to run around on the floor? Inquiring ferrets gotta know! So many of their pawPads look soft and puffy and sensitive and full of awesome playfulness! DON’T DENY THE MOUSE THE TINY PLEASURE :”>

  34. Ven Kanashi

    Hehe loved the many colors, and lol for the mistletoe. :3

  35. Zaitsev

    Also, my first full year of reading Housepets has just become reality!

  36. Vuk91

    Uh-oh, Fido is in trouble XD The comrades are looking for him and noticed he’s acting strange…
    Either way, Mistletoe means Auto-Kiss, so soon they will soooo forgive each other. And become the adorable couple we were dreaming them to be.

    • Vuk91

      Oh, and of course… YAAAY FOR DAISY :D

  37. killwithyourawesome

    Fido, they’re onto u

    • Vuk91

      Hahahaa, they sure are X3

      *The goldish German Shepherd sneaks behind Ralph and and tells his location and that he’s snuggling with a cat, then teleports back to his planet* Hahaha just kidding

      • Silly Zealot

        He had to go, his planet needed him.

      • aicivilwar

        Then in pops Kitsune and erases everyone’s memories of that incident, claiming outside interference is not permitted from players outside Pete’s &Dragon’s duel.

  38. Jibbs

    Something tells me that Daisy has been hoping for something like this to happen…

  39. Bear

    And the other shoe falls. Now that King has said that something other than mistletoe will have to interupt

  40. Andros

    Maybe this will be the kiss(if it happens) will be the final act that will make King keep this form.

  41. Cristian100n

    “Hi I’m Tom!!!” “Hi, I’m Daisy” *ten seconds latelr* “Hi I’m Tom!!!”

    • Silly Zealot

      Now I know what to make as fanart if I ever learn to draw! Thank you kindly!

    • aicivilwar

      YES! Somebody give this man an internet!

      • Cristian100n

        YAY! I gets an internets!!

  42. quiranpup

    awww, waiting long time for this moment, king, just give her a kiss, she deserves it, its your GF.
    and those ferals rock.
    Masters of the jedi art :P

    • Dissension

      More like masters of the threaten-people-with-your-claws arts.

  43. thrasherblades

    MISTLETOE!

    NOW…KISS!

  44. gmachine97

    king is in for a surprise :3

  45. Jman552

    It’s the end of the world as we know it

    And i feel FINE!

  46. GreighVonGottreich

    Daisy popping outta nowhere. XD

    King, you better kiss her. It is a rule! :D

  47. SP

    Nowhere for a moments peace.
    Looks like King will have to slap a big wet lick on Bailey now or risk upsetting her again.

  48. Salenstormwing

    At this time, a pink pony hopping by claiming to be looking for “FUN” would not be surprising.

    • aicivilwar

      *raises one eyebrow*
      “That would be illogical, Captain.”

  49. e

    Daisy what are you doing upside down?

    • Daisy

      …Hi! I’m Daisy!

      • Silly Zealot

        Daisy, what is the meaning of life?

  50. gmachine97

    i wonder if fox will burst in and see them kissing

    • Silly Zealot

      He’ll probably give them a thumbs up.

  51. *wolfiejaypaw*

    Oh no the raccoons have Jedi mind powers lol

  52. Raska

    The one Raccoon either looks like he’s trying to be Neo and stop some bullets or he’s trying to be Obi-Wan and going “We are not the ‘coons you’re looking for”

  53. GameCobra

    This would be the second ~ Well, technically third time when she said it twice to him ~ that Daisy said Hi to King. Me thinks she either forgot about him, is practicing ways to greet people, or this is sorcery.

    • MistaEpic

      Or she suffers from a mental illness. That’s an option, too, you know.

      • aicivilwar

        Or she could be shy to the point that anything she says comes bursting out, and also causes her to only blurt out one sentence. Remember the party where King tried having an extended conversation with her?

        Also, she could be a recent immigrant who doesn’t know any more English than what we’ve seen her say.

    has anyone besides me realized how much alike joey and Fido are becoming…

    • Silly Zealot

      They were always both crazy.

    • Duck'n

      They’re entering what i like to call “Epicness Equilibrium”, or otherwise known as the fine line between between being a passionate nerd and a cool guy with a heart of gold. Best of both worlds if you ask me!

      • Silly Zealot

        I wanna see the three brothers talking. Or at least Joey and Fido, since they never interacted with each other in the whole webcomic!

  55. Duck'n

    Wow awesome goggles Joey, and i have to say blue looks good on ya!

  56. FerreTrip

    That cash register sound, dear Lord >XD

    • MistaEpic

      Actually, that was the sound of Tinsel and Daisy fell out of the Christmas Tree.

      • MistaEpic

        Oops, typo. I meant “As Daisy fell out of the Christmas Tree.”

  57. Facade Kitsune

    the statue is not tacky its awsome

  58. illeatyourself

    Lol this is awesome. I’m wondering what Squeak meant by “but the paws!” though. XD

  59. Dalliaz

    KING!! NOW IS YOUR CHANCE!! KISS HER!! :D

  60. gmachine97

    i wonder what she wanted to talk about perhaps her finding out his secret? O.o because a few stips back she said “he like a miniture human in a dogsuit” so we’ll have to find out next time on housepets, I still think this should be a tv show

    • Vuk91

      MAybe She and King are going to apologize to each other then King tells his story to Bailey about being a human turned into a dog, and stuff

  61. bhPixelFire

    KISS HER YOU SHORT BALBEI!!!

  62. TinFoilHats

    Well, let me say a few things:
    -Joey is now 20– Nay, 40% cooler with the matching collar and goggle combo(what? I like goggles)
    -Good ol’ Daisy, you have such a way with words
    -Me: Racoons?! Racoons: You saw nothing. We were never here. *wavy hands*
    -Ralph: You, have you seen Officer Fido? *flashback to wednesdays comic* Me: Can’t say I have.
    -Herrrrmmmmm, Human-turned-dog-Full-blood-dog couple+mistletoe-uncontrollable rage=KISSIES!!!!!!

    • MistaEpic

      “First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes King abruptly returning to Joel-Form in the middle of a kiss.”

  63. John Willow

    Joey’s new design is awesome! Are the goggles a Digimon Tamers reference?

  64. LittlePuppy

    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay the return of Daisy. This literally made me more excited than anything else in the strip XD Sad I know….

  65. krlln

    Joey is now a digimon tamer!

  66. MistaEpic

    Oh, Daisy.

    Whenever Daisy appears, along with her signature phrase, I always think of Mario Kart.
    You know, when you select Daisy. “Hi, I’m Daisy!”

    Dunno if you we’re trying to do that, but good job, Rick.

  67. Neo

    Raska I have not been trained to stop bullets. Yet.

  68. Xane

    Rick, are you ever going to name those raccoons? Also, which one is the one from Oops I Arced?

    • Xane

      Also, Ralph’s narrower muzzle design reminds me of some other semi-famous cartoon character but I can’t place it…

      • IceKitsune

        Same here its the thing that is bugging me about it the most.

        • Xane

          …maybe Perry the Platypus? Couldn’t be…

          • IceKitsune

            No older, its reminding me of a Hanna-Barbera character really.

          • Silly Zealot

            Maybe the fox one?

          • aicivilwar

            If I look only at the top half of his mouth, it reminds me a LOT of Scooby Doo. (The older episodes from way back)

  69. bombwolfx01

    were did daisy come from and the the racoons and also why was that dog hanging upside down and scar king

  70. Silly Zealot

    Agreed!

  71. aicivilwar

    I wonder what’s going through Bailey’s mind… She looks more like she’s going to say some anecdotal story about how they grew mistletoe on the farm.

  72. Senorpie7

    I hope I am not the only one who has noticed this, but is the character or drawing style changing? o u o

    • zeroslash

      Rick changed his art style for Housepets right around Halloween, or at the very least began to shift toward this new look.

  73. griffinpete

    OH MY GOD I LOVE THESE COMICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

  74. Zaid

    Its nice to see Bailey happy again~

  75. Themiester1

    Judging by the last panel, II think we can all agree that either bailey forhot what she was going to talk about, or they’re (King and Bailey) are on good terms.

  76. gmachine97

    themiester1 we will find out next week but i can’t wait why can’t it update more? :3

    • Dissension

      Rick puts a huge amount of time into each completely free comic. Three updates per week is an entirely reasonable update schedule.

      • CHAOKOCartoons

        some peeps don’t understand the amount of hours it takes for artists to put together just one peice of art and a script for it (known from experience), I mean seriously where lucky he doesn’t go once a week!

        • Verp

          As we old school fen (plural of (science fiction) fan) would say, he works for egoboo (ego-boost) so send him lots of warm fuzzies.

          • CHAOKOCartoons

            that wasnt just a warm and fuzzy, the web comic thing takes alot of hours out of ya. A week before I published my own web comic, I had to cancel the whole thing cuz my scanner only decided to work once a week (got old) and I needed to get a head start since I have to deal with high school work, but with it needing to rest for a whole week after use I couldn’t. The point is, I wasn’t trying to flatter even though Rick diserves it. :D

          • Verp

            I just tend to understate things. If I ever meet him I will, at the vary least, buy him lunch and give him a pat on the back.

  77. Roarin

    “What’s the sense of hurt’in my pride”
    I just figured that out… ten seconds ago ^_^

    • podunkmouse

      That song started playing in my head, too, after a deja vu moment. :)

  78. griffinpete

    rick im pretty sure ur the best web comic creator in the world ur housepets comic is so amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  79. CyanFox

    Mistletoe out of no where when the’re trying to find a secluded spot? Ain’t no body got time fo dat!
