Happy New Year 2013 Housepets! =^w^=
Well Peanut, that was fast
What isn’t shown, Peanut wasn’t even in the building when the wrapper was crinkled. There is a fading trail of flame behing the couch. Fast indeed.
The maple kind?
I had some chocolate with bacon in it once. I thought it tasted like tenebrionids (darkling beetles). I told a friend who likes bacon chocolate and he thought he really should try some tenebrionids.
It must be a Bar-BQ Bacon Cheeseburger, heck even i’d drawn in on that kinda bacon goodness.
No words, just Peanut.
o n o
I know that feel, Mr. Sandwich.
Agreed, they will just stay there … starring at you … with those puppy eyes … saying “give me a little bit” with no words …
I think you mean “give me all of it”
My dog is very much like Peanut, characteristically.
Peanut’s all like where is mine, I want some??
He doesn’t even know what’s in the bag…
that has never stopped any pet
alt text ” o n o ”
Poor Mr. Sandwich: so NOT enjoying this moment alone…
Mr. Sandwich quit being such a sourpuss! X3
The “Wild Dog of the City” is known for its extremely good hearing and smell, in matter of seconds this dog can (and will) track you and your food, and will ask for food in a silence treatment that is very effective. True Story.
a known variation to said behavior consists of silently attacking and scratching at the food’s holder. Said tactic is part of the pack behavior of the Wild Dog of the City
This all as opposed to the Wild Cat of the City, who will openly proclaim its desire for food, often during a time of great inconvenience to the human host.
lol Peanuts all like “Hey, whats that?”
“I can haz?”
o n o “Come on Peanut turn that frown upside down o u o. No, wait, that looks stupid”
i see what you did there quoting Aradia
Oh goodness. Homestuck’s already infiltrated
With a dogs’ hearing, you won’t be getting any snacktime privacy.
faster than that
An amazing Swiss precision
Peanut probably could’ve gotten a pretty good begging face on in there.
Suddenly a Peanut! o n o
no need to throw a pokeball, just toss a bit of snack food.
Me, myself,…. and Peanut.
me, our snax and Peanut
“Me, Peanut and our sna …. where is the food ?!? You already ate it all ??? Come on !”
Yes, our snax. Because there are two possessions of food in a dog owning home. There are the dog’s snax, and then there are everybody’s snax.
That’s my little Yoshi all the way.
Can’t even open a bag of chips without him investigating.
Peanut appears “Like a ninja o. o”
I just opened a bag of chips, Peanut didn’t appear. I am now sad
haha! it would be nice, wouldn’t it? X3
Awww. That would be awesome. <3
Yeah it didn’t work for me either, when I opened a bag of cool ranch doritos all that came was my brother. X<
That’s a good one… Maybe your bro has senses you’re not aware of…
Same here but we’ll keep trying! :3
at this hour, your not gonna eat them right NOW are you
try something with gravy on it that might work.
I tried some Japanese wasabi candy and got absolutely NO Itsuki.
I tried pepperoni sticks. You’d think that would get his attention lickety-split, but nooo…
i did to >.> my dog appeared. she kinda looks like penut >.>
That is my dog right there.
and my three dogs
And Her Fluffyness… (nickname for my sister’s longhair calico. She’s got a permanent case if the frizz…the cat, I mean.)
And our dog’s as well! Kinda universal really.
Well…. Peanut down boy! Let your dad enjoy his…. whatever that is..
The only thing I generally see wrapped like that is either cookie stacks or snack cakes.
Omigosh that better not be a hostess cake SOMEBODY STOP HIM THEYRE AN ENDANGERED SPECIES! D:
Eep, on further inspection it could very well be a mystery food in plastic wrap.
I guess I’m expecting a snackfood after these last few strips?
Ah Peanut a real dog if I ever saw one.
“Hey Dad. Can I have some too?”
lol! that face! its too funny.lol that always happens to me.lol. love this one rick! lol. absolutely love this one. way to go peanut!
Sharing is caring! : P
not if the item to share is a bomb, then again…chips ahoy are da bomb (and assumed to be the snack by me) so I guess its caring. PS: alt. text please
Alt text: o n o
I don’t think Peanut would enjoy Oreos, since he’s…you know…allergic.
…or chips ahoy, either. (I can’t stop thinking about food…)
My dog does this with Ritz crackers…. from outside…. with the door locked….
…I shouldn’t have installed that doggy door…
… Though it is still better than replacing the windows every week like I used to…
Careful, Rick! You’ll arc again with all the snack strips!
A wild Peanut appears!
Man, heck with PokéBlocks! Generic Fruit Pies(tm) are where it’s AT!
Pokéblocks? It’s honey.
Now I’m hungry for Pringles! : 3
Soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies…
I sense a disturbance in the force.
That’s a good one X3
Just Peanut. Being a dog.
Poor Earl can’t enjoy his sand– ahh, you know.
What are you eating? What is it? Is it mine? I really hope it’s mine.
(Actually yeah, what is it?)
OH I CAN SO RELATE!
Zoe will sit right beside me on a couch and just STARE.
And if she hears one bit of something hit the floor she comes running.
I agree I have two pups and if were eating they will jump on the seats then the table if we don’t get them down fast enough.
I was the same way when I still lived at my parents’ house. XD Used to show up in the kitchen when dinner was done…I just knew somehow. OwO
so you belong to the doggy side?
More like the wolfie side.
Every single time… Hahaha and always wants more
now, about the colours ….
This is one of the times when there’s something kinds strange about Peanut acting like a this-world dog.
Haha, aww, and he looks like he was trying to be all sneaky and careful with it…
It could even have been a fresh stack of towelettes he was about to put in the dispenser (thats a thing people do, right?) but it wouldn’t matter because it CRINKLED. And he’s a PET.
And EVERYONE knows PETS hear every CRINKLE in UPPER-CASE.
i can relate, my brother’s dog will sit there and drool, it works for him, i lose my appetite fast.
that’s why i eat in the kitchen.
Given the last comic and Peanuts question and present lack of drooling, he could be getting curious about whether Mr. Sandwich is developing a double chin
My dog does exactly the same.
This happens in my house every single time! And we don’t even have any dogs!
Is it like “A Christmas Story” and the neighbor’s dogs with the turkey?
Carol (unless there’s a non-Dickensian version I’m unaware of)
and no. All of the “dog people” have been tactically deprived of keys
“A Christmas Story” is a movie in which a young boy is trying to convince his parents, through any means nessecary, to buy him a “Red Rider BB gun.” If you’ve ever heard anyone say the phrase “you’ll shoot your eye out, kid!” that movie is probably where it came from. The movie is a comedy in the American sense of comedy, and in one scene, about five of the neighbor’s bloodhounds come running into the house and steal the Christmas turkey.
I header a microwave burrito call me…
Wait this reminds me of SCP-173 some how…(stare)
‘Snax’ is SO going to become canon in Housepets! vocabulary
Rick is teasing us, I think. First he reminds us about Hostess going under, *remembers the (good) fruit pies* and now he reminds each of us about our own pets.
Soon this comic will have no fourth wall at all!
NOOO!!! NOT THE FOURTH WALL!!! Did Melvin have anything to do with this? CURSES!
Anyone else notice Earl’s change of expression between panels 2 & 3?
Why is this dog macking off of me when there’s plenty of food in the kitchen?
cuz nothing tastes as good as the snax shared with Dad
What is this “share” you speak of?
It’s just complicated stock market jargon. Don’t listen!
But those aren’t twinkies ; A;
I dunno, this would be pretty slow for every dog I’ve had. They’d have already been following me the moment I went near the kitchen!
Peanut used Odersleuth, Snax have been detected
Silly Peanut! Why don’t you just get something form the kitchen yourself?
What went through my head.
Peanut: Hey Dad!
Ruben: What do you want PeaNUUT!?
P: I look like a brown puppy.
P: Hey! Hey Dad! Sometimes I like to curl up in to a ball and pretend I’m a Puppy!
R: I’M ENJOYING A TREAT PEANUT!
he wouldn’t eat an indangered species would he?
For the one last bite of a twinkie. I think he would.
I hear the species is in “Least Concern” status in Canada
A quick 2 cents contrib:
“New style” = thumbs up … though I’m having a little difficulty drawing the line between the two at this point, apart from subtle differences in line weight and colouring “feel”.
And it’s not like the appearance hasn’t morphed several times before, usually for the best, and often in a far more distinct way :p
I think you’d be right in saying this latest change is a great deal more subtle than the last.
In fact, if you read the description for the first installment of the Zap! arc, it will say that the previous shift brought the comic closer to his “normal” style.
It seems once that stabilized, the fans really took to it. So this subtle tweaking we see now is quite par the course! ^_^
HA HA!! My two dogs always would appear when they heard any kitchen cabinet door open and my mom always would yell I don’t have anything for you!! it made me LOL
Exactly how my dog acts.
when I get a dog, I’m sure he’ll act like that too
My dog does this all the time.
Did peanut use instant transmission?
As someone who has a dog, I can vouch that, yes, this in fact DOES happen.
