One can never be too careful…
especially when it comes to snacks
And maybe they’re edible Wet Wipes
It’s serious business here!
This is only half of the standard Dog Investigation method.
Which apparently is very elaborate and inqusitive.
He usually calls
Tarot next for a psycic x-ray
He could easily work with airport security, seeing which packages have illicit substances
Illicit? Try delicious.
It’s a treat wrapped in wet wipes!
of course it is! Did you see mr. sandwich’s face in the strip before… he wouldn’t had this smile, if it were just wet wipes.
For my dogs, the treat IS wet wipes…
Seriously, they’ll eat anything
This is dead on accurate!
For dogs and cats alike~
You might win this fight, but you havent won the war
heh have to be absolutely sure
Peanut still seems determined.
you can never nose enough…
Maybe Peanut’s going to go to the Kitchen, raid the cabnets for Chips-A-Hoy, walk back to the living room (assuming thats where Earl Sandwich is), sits down infront of Earl, and starts chomping down with a dark glare on his face directed toward Earl.
Maybe, except he can’t eat chips ahoy. They have chocolate
actually dogs can eat chocolate, the whole chocolate kills dogs is a myth, like anything chocolate in bulk will kill anything but in small doses it wont and chips ahoy cookies dont have a bulk of chocolate (a bulk of chocolate is the equivilant of 10 full kingsize hershys bars in the matter of 10 minutes)
Ya sure about that, CWF?
If it’s a myth, it’s a myth the veterinarians either believe or encourage for selfish reasons (so, either they’re badly educated, or they’re outright evil, if it’s a myth), since our dog got her stomach pumped after eating a moderate amount – let’s say about a (candy) bowl. Enough to satisfy a human, but no more.
If that’s what you mean by ‘in bulk’, it’s hardly ‘kill anything’ – I’m talking amounts that won’t even make a human naucious, much less sick.
If you’re going to counter with dogs being more sensitive – well, duh, that’s what ‘Dogs can’t eat chocolate’ means.
Actually, from my own research and through talking with the veterinarians in my city, I believe that chocolate is simply an extremely common allergy among dogs and cats. An extremely common RISKY allergy.
So when it comes down to it, why risk it?
chocolate is safe if it’s given in MINUSCULE doses from time to time, never every day.
Chocolate is cumulatively poisoning. It won’t make your dog go *irk!* and belly up with a bite, but (especially with older dogs) it will sum up to an unpleasant kidney/liver problem. An eccessive dosage will kill the dog.
Saying it’s a myth is plain irresponsible.
i give my dogs chocolate all the time i have three a german shepherd named charlie, a whippet named annabelle and a irish setter named sasha, anyways they get about 2-3 candy bar fulls in a 12 hour period and i never had a problem with them, also did you really need to get their stomach pumped or did you just do it cuase the dog ate the bowl? or did you call the vet and the suggested you get it pumped, i mean unless the dog was suddenly puking its guts up after eating the bowl it had no adverse effects on it
Animals that metabolize theobromine (found in chocolate) more slowly, such as dogs, can succumb to theobromine poisoning from as little as 50 grams (1.8 oz) of chocolate for a smaller dog and 400 grams (14.4 oz) for an average sized dog.
I’m so glad we have Wikipedia.
That is adorable…
the SQUEEEmeter has reached a new record!
His nose bends in the bottom middle panel that definetly adds to the so called SQUEEEmeter.
wait… if those were wet wipes…… what was he gonna do before peanut showed up!?
Either watch a TV equivalent of All Dogs Go To Heaven or using it as a distraction for Peanut before he pulls out the real snacks under the couch =3
I’m pretty sure he’s aware of Peanut’s powerful sense of smell! Most likely a different hiding spot!
Wet-wipes, not tissues. i don’t imagine wet-wipes would really help remove tears that well.
Then what was he going to…..
Wait a sec… aren’t wet eipes what parents supposed to use when changing diapers?
New Character Approaching!??
Really dude? Also maybe he was doing some hard dirty work and wanted to rest and the wet wipes were to clean the dirt something off his hands.
My vote was for refilling an empty dispenser…
… before this strip was even posted!
Mr. Sandwich has tricks up his sleeves! : P
The nose is always right!
But it’s always good to nip it as well to make sure. X3
Ha! Poor Peanut!
My dogs do this everyday when I get back from work, I need to empty my pockets before I go inside.
Ditto. My dog thinks that there’s a squeaky toy in every one of the grocery bags when i’m putting them away. Sometimes there is, usually that is not the case but you have to admire determination.
this! even if I bring home a bag filled with the most inedible stuff, said stuff must be nose-approved first
We always bring our groceries in through the Garage. We bring in the produce and everything else either goes in the extra fridge/freezer or on the shelves in the garage. Minimizes the sniffing and wiggling of my Basset’s butt and tail but Maximizes the cold feet in the morning.
‘WAIT!!! why would you sit down to use wet wipes?’ -_-
Touche Mr. Sandwich… Touche. You may have won this round buut Peanut WILL BE WATCHING !!!
I wonder if he wiped the bag with the wipes? That’d be clever.
Dang it wasn’t a twinkie pack…
It could be a trick though! Don’t believe him Peanut!!!
Didn’t the Twinkie factories go out of business? If so I hardly think Mr Sandwich would share his secret stash
You win this round.
it’s always funny when dogs do that, and so very cute too
The treats are a lie!
Perhaps he sealed his snacks in plastic wrap first. Then with the strong clean smell of the wipes covering the plastic wrap, he glued the already opened wet wipes to make it look like he’s going to open a brand new package. His hidden snacks tucked safely inside from Peanut’s cute nose?
Or Mr. Sandwich is telling the Truth?
or it’s a resealable bag and it makes that sound when it’s opened every time
He should just sprinkled some chili powder on the bag, and watch as hilarity ensues.
You’re right, Mr. Sandwich would never do anything like that… :3
not the same!
everything with snow balls is funny!
That is SOO like my dog! anything that even remotely sounds like a chips bag and “poof” there he is! and if if ISNT a chips bag he has to snif every square micrometer of it to be sure.
…this is my new favorite strip( in my top twenties ) not just because it made me laugh for five whole minutes, but because of Peanut’s face in the last pannel! XD BTW, I think Rick is un-intentionaly arcing again 8^)
Cuteness…. Overload… Peanut’s face… First Panel….
5th panel too
Be careful, Peanut.
Just wait until the human opens that thing…
He’s smart enough to realize that Earl Sandwich might be lying. If he wasn’t smart enough he could go bug Grape and Get her in the arch.
I wonder if Rick will make this into a short arch.
AT – ‘Snarf’
thunder, thunder! thunder-snacks! HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Ha! I have a cat who will take take, and attempt to eat, anything I proffer to him except for citrus. This includes bread, alfalfa sprouts, shed hair, and jalepenos. My doggle is similar in that she will gently accept most things (though not eat), except for citrus. She curls her lips up at oranges and then runs away. Very cute and sad at the same time.
I love all of Peanuts faces! So darn cute! And I Love the sniff inspection test. X3
Cats do it too. One of my relatives likes tuna sandwiches. When he opens a can, he gives the juice to the cats. Every time I open a can of anything, I get at least three cats expecting food and I have to let them sniff the lid to convince them I didn’t just open tuna
My cats do that too! I used to have a jar-o-catnip, so now I can’t make a PB&J sandwich without them at my feet.
I was over at someone’s house once, who had three cats. When I went to make cereal they never took their eyes off the carton of milk. It was kind of creepy.
I sometimes tease my cat(s) by waving my food around in the air and watching their head(s) move back & forth in a hypnotizing motion.
Usually after I’ve had my fun I give them a nibble… which leads to more hilarity because they come up running when I’m in the kitchen… and I have a laminate floor.
I have to be honest, the sounds of Peanut snuffing the container is just spot on cute, it is just what my dogs do to me every single time I have something. I go in the kitchen and open up a bag of shredded cheese or something and BAM, they are RIGHT THERE! x3
The worst is when they beg for things they don’t want, I could have a potato chip and they would be clawing at me and everything, then when I give it to them, a couple sniffs later, they just turn around and lose interest completely!
This morning we couldn’t get our puppy to eat her breakfast. We tried drowning it in water but she was still being picky. Then i accidentally knocked some dry Shreddies on the floor and she went crazy.
Peanut looks way too cute. :3
You win this time sir!
“Let me check inside the bag first………”
It’s the last package of Twinkies!
It took me a moment to get to read the smaller panels the right way but it works whatever way you read it.
Somehow I bet that it is food but it’s made by Itsuki so somehow Peanut’s nose is fooled by the Japanese ingredients.
Are all dogs like that?
*nods solemnly* aye they are.
The cute is strong within these creatures
yes we canines love to do this ^_^
If Peanut was an Australian Cattle Dog (Queensland [Blue|Red] Heeler), I think wet wipes would still count in the ‘food’ category. The average AuCaDo has a tissue fetish…
Why did I need to know that D:
note to the author: the previous comic can’t be labeled ‘one-off’ anymore, right?
I know. I checked and it still is.
He’s done one-offs that continue into the next one before
If he reaches three, then we can start speculating about an arc
PEANUT: You were lucky this time… one day it won’t be wet wipes, and I’ll be waiting.
My husky is like that, suspicious that _anything_ is food, if it crinkles.
Come on lets get back to King and the wedding
That arc is over. We will likely see King and Bailey at some point in the future.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen that sort of expression on Peanut before. That’s hilarious.
My puppy actually learned very quickly, if I wasn’t offering her any, she didn’t want it for a reason. Even if it smelled really good.
“Hmph, ‘wet wipes’. I’m watchin’ you, buddy…” =__=
“You’ve lied before… like that time you threw the ball and I looked for it for like half and hour and then I saw you laughing while holding the ball…”
you’ve also lied in the winter saying fetch and it ends up being a snowball. how mean…..still something’s funny on those wet wipes it could be something else……….like a frozen food!!!!!
What a snax maniac.
snax is the natural part of a dog’s life
Haha.*laughed so hard belly hurts*
I second that! HAhahaha-heh…ow…
I dont trust Mr. Sandwich… Peanut keep an eye on him
Hahaha! My dog does this! X3
Why would he need wet wipes unless he was cleaning his hands before he starts snacking?
Ahaha… I think the best part of this is him nibbling it as the final test! Hilarious.
Additionally, was I actually RIGHT!?
Equally possible is that it is a convenient misdirection… Earl is pretty sharp… Hm…
… i dont know if this was an accident, but theres no one of tag!
lol! “very well…” thats the funny part for me. but the rest is cute!
Mr. Sandwich needs to know better. You need to disable his nose for him to leave you alone.
Ex. Take off your shoes.
lol, not going to work. his has paws, ears, and eyes are made to track dangerous snax that hide from his reach.
wait he can smell though his mouth, I’ve seen my cat do do that…
no no, nipping at it is to get the texure and size of whatevers’ in the pack. Either that or he’s tryingto see if the pack tastes like a wet wipe pack (although I don’t know why he would already know what that tastes like).
Because as a puppy he bit everything just to see what it tasted like (and to see if it was edible), and later he’s occasionally nipped at wet wipe bags to see if they tasted like they should (otherwise it’s clearly not a wet wipe bag and might be edible)
I find it funny that “nose” is apparently a sound effect….
I bet my money that it’s an onomatopoeia. Someday, I’ll find out how to make that sound…
I have cats like this. They can detect a fridge opening from two houses down and Chicken from the next estate over.
This is SO accurate…, spot on! I have two Australian Shepherds that do this all the time! Annoying, humorous and endearing simultaneously.
Aaahahaaa this makes me laugh. My dogs are the same way, although they usually don’t care much about what we are doing unless what we are holding is something they have never seen before or it specifically looks like food. Or another animal. XD
I kinda feel sorry for Peanut cause he doesn’t have many dog friends to do that stuff with. Sure he has Tarot his girlfriend and Joey kinda but he’s more of a last one to expect kind of friends. Come on Rick give Peanut one more dog friend to hang with, doesn’t matter if he has problems as long as he likes hanging with Peanut!
Man, peanut! Just when I thought you couldn’t get any cuter….
anyone else notice in the third panel theres nose?
i wonder whats inside it.
Omg xDD Peanuts face in that last panel! >w<
This gets me every time I see it. It seriously just gets better and better every time I look at it.
Dad 1 Peanut 0
oh hahaha heeeeheee his expression on the last panel! Consterntation and dread! VERY well….reminds me of my foreman
I’m sorry if I offended anyone with my last comment my deepest apology’s
There’s something about his eyes in that last frame that just look wrong to me, but I’ve been trying to come up with a way of explaining it and failing. They just don’t work, somehow.
Maybe is not an expression you would expects from Peanut
and thats why it feels odd or something
Love this one XD
i can think of one other word to describe peanuts expression in the last frame. “soon…”
i honestly feel like my dog does this to me and says this kind of stuff to…. :/ mind blooooooooooooooooown!!!
