All’s fair in love and violence?
Why not, Sasha would still be smiling happy after the movie!
No Xane, I believe the saying goes like this “All’s fair in the love/war battlefield”.
Rooster teeth reference?
Perceptive this one is! annd yup it totally is.
Heehee, I love Bino.
Ditto, He’s such a goofy little scamp!
Oh Bino you silly silly Dog you.
Good boy, Bino, you’re learning not to disappoint Sasha.
Well … at least he is trying
well if she says no ill go
sounds reasonable enough…
So close, yet so far.
Proud of you Bino Sasha would approve of the bloody goodness! =P
Seems legit :3
Fox looks so thin.
That or Bino looks too chubby, though the belly does kind of fit in with his lax house pet lifestyle.
It’s just me or Bino has a belly?
Bino’s redesign had him get a bit of a pudgey belly, but it’s more subtle than in Rick’s original sketches.
Reminds me of the pillsbury dough boy. Quick, poke him to see if he giggles!
I’m sure Max already tried that.
I wonder if Sasha likes Violence, if she does I hope she won’t go crazy about it.
Bino’s got a spiffy little bow-tie! How uncharacteristically thoughtful of him to be so…. well, thoughtful!
Bowties are cool.
Now we need to get him a tweed jacket and a fezz
Aicivilwar, that comment wouldn’t be nearly as awesome if I hadn’t immediately imagined it coming from your avatar.
So, according to twitter, we’re going to hate Rick for this arc.
Personally, I look forward to seeing what he throws at us.
How could I ever hate Rick?
Really. If anything, we’re all going to be hating Bino. I too am in anticipation.
I dunno, Rick could pull a fast one and surprise all of us.
which is his standard for this comic
I agree. Not that it would make us hate him, But who saw King proposing to Bailey coming? That was almost impossible to see.
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
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”!
Blasphemy!! Rick could never do something so unspeakably awful for us to “hate” him, right?
Hate is such a strong word Rick!
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
Not liked by some of us, yes, but disliked by ALL of us?
I read the works of David “**** You!” Willis.
I’m not sure Rick could make me hate him if he tried.
Opens ‘The Pitchfork and Torch Store’, we have everything every angry fan mobs need.
Including the spoon?
There is no spoon!
How do you expect to get a good sized mob without the spoon?
Pherhaps not a spoon, but what a about a pun?
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!
There is no spoon, but there is a fork like that!
I´ll need a broom
I think Sasha has enough violence at home, but here’s to hoping she likes the movie. Also… bowties are cool
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…
Quite the lady’s man there, Bino.
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
That certainly is the Bino-centric way of thinking.
Kind of depends on your date not being a predator.
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.
Why do I feel like Fail 4 is bound to occur?
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
What kind of things scare dogs? Loud noises? How about war movies?
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”.
The zombies at land of the dead got distracted by fireworks the survivors used.
Maybe they should watch that one.
When did bow-tie collars become a thing? I must know this!
He wears a bow tie now. Bow ties are cool.
Too late, I said it earlier, but still YES!
It’s to hide his pencilly neck!
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.
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
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.
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?
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.
Argent Stonecutter, you sure you’re not Tarrot with a fancy internet name?
Don’t jump to conclusions until you see how wrong I am.
Holy sanctity of holiness! Argent is a psychic ferret!
This is the greatest discovery since…. air!
We must tell the authorities at once!
and/or Pete shows up to ruin King and Baileys relationship. Then everyone tries to jump into there screen out of anger at Pete.
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.
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!
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
“What do you expect in an Opera, a happy ending?”
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”
So… What if Sasha hasn’t seen the first 5 “Screaming Blood Cult” Movies?
Of course, she may be lost either way…
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.
You didn’t have to see all the previous movies to understand ‘Leonard Part 6′.
And, yes, it deserved all the Razzies it received.
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 :’(
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.
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.
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.
Hmm… but why would he do that?
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…….?
My senses tell me that Bino and Sasha aren’t the only romantic couple going to see this movie. =3
For some reason I agree.
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.
…or Tarot making it “Real”.
Bruce and Roosevelt show up at the theater! *unexpected dramatic sound*
Zookeper: Huh? How did you get out of the zoo?! Back to your cage! The children want to see you dance!!!!!
I like how fox looks in this comic
He looks with his eye parts!
His eyes do look “slightly” skewed, but otherwise he looks very neat and (more or less) anatomically correct.
Yes, that’s a good move Bino.
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!!
Assuming that Sasha even knows about that.
Cant wait to see them breaking up XD wont happen anyway
Oooh the fun with scary movies :3
I believe otherwise, for my foresight never lies on events to happen or have passed already….
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?
Where in the world is Carmen San Diego ?!?
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.
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.)
Oh, I also bet one fezzie that JoeKing will give Bailey the following for Valentine’s: Flowers, (dog-safe)chocolate, and a steak.
Just for that I’ll raise my bet with a Screaming blood cult VI ticket.
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.
I bet a six-cylinder engine that Joey and Squeak will be there
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.
*Looks at what Bino says in the last panel* Wot? *Facepalm*
I don’t have a girlfriend and even I know that’s a beaver damming move on his part.
Either Shasa likes horror and gore type movies, or Bino’s being an idiot.
Isn’t he always?
The adventures of Bino and gang! (’cause calling them “friends” is too strong a word).
Also: “Fox you bother me with your mouth sometimes.”
How very, very, VERY Bino….
That’s like how we’re gonna watch Fright Night
If there’s a Housepets! version of pyramid head, I wonder if he is a part of the movie or hiding in the crowd.
By Pyramid Head do you mean same name as the kid who tried to steal Darla?
I meant Silent hill’s pyramid head
Oh, so he’s going to go watch Mystery Science Theater 3000 with his girlfriend?
*facepaw* Dead dog walking.
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.)
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.
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.
Bloody valentine I see
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)…
This actually sounds like a movie I want to see.
as partner of Sasha, he anticipated his own wishes and desires and avoided Sasha thinking of something. A REAL gentledog!
You’re right of course, but at least Bino is making SOME progress as opposed to how he used to act.
Will Bino be (metaphorically) killed and replaced by nice Bino?
How’s that supposed to make us hate Rick?
I have to say, I’m really digging the title splash at the beginning of arcs now
Oh man! I can just imagine Duchess popping into this story arc. Hahaha
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.
exactly it works almost 90% of the time
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!!!”
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.”
Bino: Peanut! Grape! Stop sneaking into my house! And stop laughing at me!!!
Bino seemed to be in good shape up until he contradicted himself. At least we know he hasn’t changed very much (yet).
i must amit that this is the best comic ever i am still reading it
I’m pretty sure Bino’s going to end up more scared than Sasha.
haha nice, real nice
