    All’s fair in love and violence?

    • Marco

      Why not, Sasha would still be smiling happy after the movie! ;)

    • Duster

      No Xane, I believe the saying goes like this “All’s fair in the love/war battlefield”.

      • Azenel

        Rooster teeth reference?

        • Duster

          Perceptive this one is! annd yup it totally is.

  2. Dissension

    Heehee, I love Bino.

    • Duster

      Ditto, He’s such a goofy little scamp!

  3. IceKitsune

    Oh Bino you silly silly Dog you.

  4. D-Rock

    Good boy, Bino, you’re learning not to disappoint Sasha.

  5. Gabe23

    Well … at least he is trying

    • joshi

      well if she says no ill go

  6. Kimo

    sounds reasonable enough…

  7. xhunterko

    So close, yet so far.

  8. Marco

    Proud of you Bino Sasha would approve of the bloody goodness! =P

    • Skarroth

      Seems legit :3

  9. Lamandus

    Fox looks so thin.

    • Duster

      That or Bino looks too chubby, though the belly does kind of fit in with his lax house pet lifestyle.

  10. Gato

    It’s just me or Bino has a belly?

    • Tarka TGO

      Bino’s redesign had him get a bit of a pudgey belly, but it’s more subtle than in Rick’s original sketches.

      • lifebydeth

        Reminds me of the pillsbury dough boy. Quick, poke him to see if he giggles!

        • Keldor

          I’m sure Max already tried that.

  11. AleColin

    I wonder if Sasha likes Violence, if she does I hope she won’t go crazy about it.

  12. Duster

    Bino’s got a spiffy little bow-tie! How uncharacteristically thoughtful of him to be so…. well, thoughtful!

    • aicivilwar

      Bowties are cool.

      • GreighVonGottreich

        Now we need to get him a tweed jacket and a fezz :D

      • Somebody

        Aicivilwar, that comment wouldn’t be nearly as awesome if I hadn’t immediately imagined it coming from your avatar.

  13. The Wolf Kin

    So, according to twitter, we’re going to hate Rick for this arc.

    Personally, I look forward to seeing what he throws at us.

    • B.Squirrel

      How could I ever hate Rick?

      • Tarka TGO

        Really. If anything, we’re all going to be hating Bino. I too am in anticipation.

        • Duster

          I dunno, Rick could pull a fast one and surprise all of us.

          • Valerio

            which is his standard for this comic

          • LeaahWulf

            I agree. Not that it would make us hate him, But who saw King proposing to Bailey coming? That was almost impossible to see.

          • Gabe23

            There´s also the possibility that at the end of the arc, a lot of us will “hate” a character because of some desicion he/she takes … And I personally think that -if this would actually happen- this character would NOT be Bino

        • Silly Zealot

          Agreed the proposition was really something we did NOT see coming.
          Then again, what will Rick do to make everyone hate him? Will all the goverments in the world hate him and decide, for the first time since the first splintering of humans, to unite as one and kill him? Will babies hate him? Will the plants hate him?
          What could he do to make everyone hate him so? Unless….
          Gasp! He’s gonna kill Sasha, just like they did in “Enemy at the gates”!

    • Duster

      Blasphemy!! Rick could never do something so unspeakably awful for us to “hate” him, right?

    • Marco

      Hate is such a strong word Rick!

    • Gabe23

      Well, a lot of things can happen in one single arc, decisions, plot twists … and some of them could not be liked by a lot of us

      • Silly Zealot

        Not liked by some of us, yes, but disliked by ALL of us?

    • Val Kilmer Batman/AsimovSideburns

      I read the works of David “**** You!” Willis.

      I’m not sure Rick could make me hate him if he tried.

    • GeckoZY

      Opens ‘The Pitchfork and Torch Store’, we have everything every angry fan mobs need.

      • Dena

        Including the spoon?

        • Frank

          There is no spoon!

          • Dena

            How do you expect to get a good sized mob without the spoon?

          • Silly Zealot

            Pherhaps not a spoon, but what a about a pun?

          • ToaSoul

            Its okay i have plenty of spoons for everyone and in many different sizes…. Now who wants the “wow i didn’t think they made one that big” spoon!

          • Frank

            There is no spoon, but there is a fork like that!

      • Gabe23

        I´ll need a broom

  14. Kohaku Nightfang

    I think Sasha has enough violence at home, but here’s to hoping she likes the movie. Also… bowties are cool

    • Baxtrr

      That’s an interesting point. All we know for certain is that Sasha’s Dad is not sensitive at all to her needs and she’s trying to make the best of a horrid situation; there’s no evidence of violence. (I think if there was, something would have been done about it already. But that’s just me.)

      So Rick will do something to make us hate him, eh? Considering how emotionally invested we all are in so many of these characters, the possibilities are endless. It’s the mark of a good storyteller that he doesn’t quail at hurting or killing a beloved character to further the story in the right way…

  15. B.Squirrel

    Quite the lady’s man there, Bino.

    • Gabe23

      He is quite right, just think: Why going to a corny romantic-comedy movie, when you can tan your date to a horror film and she will be cuddle to your arm thanks to the scary nature of the film … GENIUS !!!

      *Of course this plan could fail in many various ways

      • Duster

        That certainly is the Bino-centric way of thinking.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Kind of depends on your date not being a predator.

      • Neo


    • team fabulous

      Fail one: your date would strangle you by accident.

      Fail two: your date would strangle you after the movie out of anger.

      Fail three: you wouldn’t notice your date holding you out of fear of you getting scared of the movie/your date’s reaction after the movie.

      Fail final: your date would enjoy the movie, and you would be scared to death.

      • B.Squirrel

        Why do I feel like Fail 4 is bound to occur?

  16. KazuOhki

    I dunno, imagining dogs watching a horror movie… all I can see is just htem barking at the screen the whole time. Its more of a human thing to watch that stuff isn’t it?
    Still silly though

    • Argent Stonecutter

      What kind of things scare dogs? Loud noises? How about war movies?

      • Sagebrush

        Vacuum cleaners.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Heh. Another webcomic I read (Scary Go Round) has a monster called an “odkurzacz” that sucks hope from people. If you look that up, that’s Czech for “vacuum cleaner”. :)

      • Silly Zealot

        The zombies at land of the dead got distracted by fireworks the survivors used.
        Maybe they should watch that one.

  17. Khazix

    When did bow-tie collars become a thing? I must know this!

    • Val Kilmer Batman/AsimovSideburns

      He wears a bow tie now. Bow ties are cool.

      • Kohaku Nightfang

        Too late, I said it earlier, but still YES!

    • Frank

      It’s to hide his pencilly neck!

  18. CHAOKOCartoons

    Ok dudes and chicks, lets look at what makes anyone temporaroly HATE a writter: 1. The arc is called ‘Love and War’, LOVE can imply a love triangle that usualy ends in heart break for everyone 2. Bino is talking about relationships to Fox in a forshadowy way, meaning Fox and/or Bino will probubly be in said love triangle 3. WORST POSSIBLE THAT SHOULD NEEEEVER HAPPEN OR BE BROUGHT UP……. somone dies…. this is only a 0.0000001 chance possibility though.

    • Duster

      That would be devastating, what if somehow Sasha dumps Bino for Fox!
      Thus potentially severing Bino’s relationship while simultaneously disrupting an old friendship. O_o

      • CHAOKOCartoons

        Well, thats EXACTLY what I’m talking about. That devistation leads the fans on a love/hate relationship with the writter. This is, like, ABSOLUTELY necessary for a great story.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Duchess shows up at the movie, Bino goes all wobbly on seeing her, Sasha notices.

      Meanwhile Duchess is at the movie to spy on King and Bailey, and doesn’t notice Bino at all.

      King and Bailey are there because Bailey is a big fan of the “Screaming Blood Cult” series. They spend the whole arc in cameos arguing about the cinematic qualities of the movie.

      Boris and Yeltsin are involved somehow, because Rick mentioned Yeltsin’s new look.

      But are they involved as Bino’s henchmen, or Duchess’s?

      • FriendlyFireFox

        Oh man, I think we have a winner! Where’s your crystal ball?

        Though I must say, I’d think Boris and Yeltsin would just be there to watch.

      • thebrokeartist

        Argent Stonecutter, you sure you’re not Tarrot with a fancy internet name?

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Don’t jump to conclusions until you see how wrong I am.

          • Silly Zealot

            Holy sanctity of holiness! Argent is a psychic ferret!
            This is the greatest discovery since…. air!
            We must tell the authorities at once!

      • lifebydeth

        and/or Pete shows up to ruin King and Baileys relationship. Then everyone tries to jump into there screen out of anger at Pete.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Offtopic comment about your avatar: That little wolf dude with the twitchy nose is still the cutest character in HP!, except maybe the zoo’s wolf girl he’s twitching his nose at.

        • Silly Zealot

          I already want to jump into screen and choke our well known blue feathered antagonist, and pretty much every other magical being/creature/thingy in Housepets!

    • Frank

      It’s a cartoon! People never die in cartoons!

      …of course… they do in wars… and we could argue that pets may not count as people… oh, I’ll just shut up now

  19. Tarka TGO

    I completely forgot about the AT. Read it – subsequently laughed my tail off.

    AT: “Why would they ironically release horror movies on valentines day if they didn’t mean for us to spring them on our girlfriends”

  20. Xaq

    So… What if Sasha hasn’t seen the first 5 “Screaming Blood Cult” Movies?
    Of course, she may be lost either way…

    • aicivilwar

      Unless her “mothership” shpiel was about one or more of the movies.
      Seems like Sasha might not be quite as… … … bubbly… as nearly all the cast seem to think.

    • Dena

      You didn’t have to see all the previous movies to understand ‘Leonard Part 6′.

      And, yes, it deserved all the Razzies it received.

  21. Kohaku Nightfang

    I think Bino will leave Sasha for Duchess (I think that was the name of the evil dog that chased King) and that is why we will “hate” Rick. Most likely because it will really hurt Sasha :’(

    • thebrokeartist

      Sasha basically loves everyone she meets. Heck she was pretty nice to King when they first met. She doesn’t hold a grudge over anybody. She has the worst pet owner and she still loves him like parent. So yeah, she won’t be heart broken, she’ll just go after another male dog in no time.

  22. Val Kilmer Batman/AsimovSideburns

    What if all this “we’re going to hate Rick” stuff makes us think up all the ways he could upset is, and then the real thing is not nearly as bad and we instantly forgive him?

    That would be the most devious thing of all.

    • CHAOKOCartoons

      :0….. GENIUS!!!!!!!

    • Silly Zealot

      He said it just so we would be all preocuppied with what terrible thing would happen, and then the arc ends without an issue and Rick suddenly says: “Nothing bad happened, problem?”
      And then we all hate him.

    • Duster

      Hmm… but why would he do that?
      Cheap laughs?
      No Rick has more style than that don’t ya think?
      I think he’ll change something up that people may currently be happy with, you know like Bino and Sasha’s relationship or something else entirely…….?

  23. Gamecobra

    My senses tell me that Bino and Sasha aren’t the only romantic couple going to see this movie. =3

    • thebrokeartist

      For some reason I agree.

      • jrh150482

        Possibly. I can see Max and Grape going to that, but only because Grape dragged him there kicking and screaming. I don’t imagine Peanut would take Tarot there, if only because I think he’d probably be concerned about Tarot spoiling it. King and Bailey? I doubt it, all things considered (I refer to strips “All I Want for Christmas” and “Is You”). The wolf couples? I don’t think so, but they actually might; you never know with wolves. Fido and Sabrina? Definitely not. Same for Joey and Squeak.

        • LadySharon

          …or Tarot making it “Real”.

    • Valerio

      Bruce and Roosevelt show up at the theater! *unexpected dramatic sound*

      • Silly Zealot

        Zookeper: Huh? How did you get out of the zoo?! Back to your cage! The children want to see you dance!!!!!

  24. GeckoZY

    I like how fox looks in this comic :D

    • Silly Zealot

      He looks with his eye parts!

      • Duster

        His eyes do look “slightly” skewed, but otherwise he looks very neat and (more or less) anatomically correct.

  25. Warwicky

    Yes, that’s a good move Bino.

  26. Res Auburn

    something tells me that sasha will bring up king’s proposal and that they’ve been together four times as long…..so what’s the hold up bub!!

    • jrh150482

      Assuming that Sasha even knows about that.

  27. Vuk91

    Cant wait to see them breaking up XD wont happen anyway

  28. GreighVonGottreich

    Oooh the fun with scary movies :3

  29. Hotep the psychic

    I believe otherwise, for my foresight never lies on events to happen or have passed already….

    • Silly Zealot

      Who killed David Croquet in El Alamo?
      How old is the planet?
      What are the lotto numbers for next week?
      Will aliens invade Earth soon?

      • Gabe23

        Where in the world is Carmen San Diego ?!?

  30. thebrokeartist

    Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Rick has written another story that makes me wanna say this.
    THE GAME IS ON ONCE AGAIN!!!! Try to guess which couples or characters will be seen in the movies. I bet well see Peanut and Tarrot, Fido and Sabrina, King and Bailey and these were the couples. Now for the characters Mr. Bigglesworth, Mr. Bigglesworth and so on and so on, Dutches, the wolf family, Kari, the raccoons and joey. As for my bet I’ll put 1 cat costume, a bow-tie and a pair of sun glasses. The person with the closest prediction shall be named the winner. So come play and have fun.

    • aicivilwar

      I bet one pair of red&blue 3D stereoscopic void glasses that we’ll see at least one member from the current cast appear in the movie.
      I also bet one Stetson (because Stetsons are cool) that we will see at least one breakup before the end of the arc, possibly between JoeKing and Bailey. (They just got together, so it would be hate-worthy for them to separate so soon.)

      • aicivilwar

        Oh, I also bet one fezzie that JoeKing will give Bailey the following for Valentine’s: Flowers, (dog-safe)chocolate, and a steak.

        • thebrokeartist

          Just for that I’ll raise my bet with a Screaming blood cult VI ticket.

    • thebrokeartist

      Come on people. You have a chance play a fun little game. Just guess which characters will be seen in the movie theater and the couples. And I’ll raise the bet with a jar of peanut butter.

    • TinFoilHats

      I bet a six-cylinder engine that Joey and Squeak will be there

  31. The Nitpick

    Oh gads! I just had a sizable portion of a pb&j sammich come out my nose when I read panel 3.

    If his date survives the movie, there’s a good chance he won’t survive the aftermath.

  32. team fabulous

    *Looks at what Bino says in the last panel* Wot? *Facepalm*

  33. TinFoilHats

    I don’t have a girlfriend and even I know that’s a beaver damming move on his part.

  34. team fabulous

    Either Shasa likes horror and gore type movies, or Bino’s being an idiot.

    • aicivilwar

      Isn’t he always?

      • Silly Zealot

        The adventures of Bino and gang! (’cause calling them “friends” is too strong a word).

  35. Baxtrr

    Also: “Fox you bother me with your mouth sometimes.”

    How very, very, VERY Bino….

  36. Adryan

    That’s like how we’re gonna watch Fright Night

  37. team fabulous

    If there’s a Housepets! version of pyramid head, I wonder if he is a part of the movie or hiding in the crowd.

    • aicivilwar

      By Pyramid Head do you mean same name as the kid who tried to steal Darla?

      • team fabulous

        I meant Silent hill’s pyramid head

  38. T-Squared

    Oh, so he’s going to go watch Mystery Science Theater 3000 with his girlfriend? :D

  39. bhPixelFire

    *facepaw* Dead dog walking.

    • jrh150482

      Yep, Bino’s probably about to receive his fourth set of injuries in the comic soon. (Grape hit him with a frying pan, then he fell off the roof of the Milton mansion, then Bailey rocked him in the face with a vicious right straight. That’s three so far, unless I missed one.)

      • Ozimul

        There was also the off-screen damage after he pranked King that one Christmas.
        And also the off-screen damage after he stole King’s watch.

        • jrh150482

          I’ll give you the first one, Ozimul, but the second one doesn’t count since there’s no unequivocal evidence that Bino actually got injured there. (Bino *might* have gotten injured, but there’s no evidence of it.) So Bino’s been injured four times so far, not three.

  40. Gray

    Bloody valentine I see

  41. Perfesser_Bear

    Yee-aahh… I’ve gone out with at least two women for whom that movie would be date-bait. Both of them were strawberry blondes and both turned out to be psychos. Coincidence? You decide.

    Otherwise, not what I would normally consider a Chick Flick (and yet, What Lies Beneath has been described that way)…

  42. Jman552

    This actually sounds like a movie I want to see.

  43. Valerio

    as partner of Sasha, he anticipated his own wishes and desires and avoided Sasha thinking of something. A REAL gentledog!

    • Duster

      You’re right of course, but at least Bino is making SOME progress as opposed to how he used to act.

      • Silly Zealot

        Will Bino be (metaphorically) killed and replaced by nice Bino?
        How’s that supposed to make us hate Rick?

  44. Raska

    I have to say, I’m really digging the title splash at the beginning of arcs now

  45. ShadowRanger720

    Oh man! I can just imagine Duchess popping into this story arc. Hahaha

  46. WingedWolfGirl

    I know what the plan is.
    He’s hoping the movie will get Sasha so riled up with fear that she cuddles up to him for protection.

    • ToaSoul

      exactly it works almost 90% of the time

      • lifebydeth

        The other 10% they grab you by the shoulders and shake you around while screaming “DON’T GO IN THERE!!!!! DON’T GO IN THERE!!!! NOOOOOOO!!!”

  47. Barz

    Well it’s pretty good to see Bino “try” to care more about Sasha. After all he doesn’t want wake up with “his ears stapled to his eye ball…… in D minor.”

  48. Silly Zealot

    Bino: Peanut! Grape! Stop sneaking into my house! And stop laughing at me!!!

  49. Duster

    Bino seemed to be in good shape up until he contradicted himself. At least we know he hasn’t changed very much (yet).

  50. sky the snow wolf

    i must amit that this is the best comic ever i am still reading it

  51. Ozimul

    I’m pretty sure Bino’s going to end up more scared than Sasha.

  52. season one

    haha nice, real nice
