Today's strip is yet another shining example of why Bailey is awesome!
Plus Bailey has a pretty good sense of humor.
Even when King is trying to be a stick in the mud, she's right at his side to cheer him up.

I guess an impending wedding would make anyone nervous.

Also surprised that neither of them have done anything to get rid of the camera crew, or maybe they thought it was pointless to try.

Wait... Bailey was acting? She's good!

I wonder if Rock will insist on remaking this after the wedding/honeymoon. It wouldn't surprise me. He's probably already hidden a contractual obligation for it somewhere in the waiver.

Ah, Bailey and King, forever arguing
and proving, to all the above,
when they make it up before morning,
that theirs is an ideal look of love

Not to say that Bailey couldn't, if inclined,
grab that camera off of poor Cameron
and make it quite difficult to find,
(unless Rock calls for his Matron...)

She really is quite playful
and loves her King like a Prince
King finds things quite stressful...
Big heart, big nerves, small paw prints...

I'm sorry Rock, but dramatic reality TVs shows about couples only work when their not perfect for each other.

Daww, getting hugs requires King to be lifted off his feet. Embarrassing and cute.

Nah, King just likes to do double pony kick...
(In case you don't know what a pony kick is...) link

When I read today's comic I could almost see this:

Bailey: King, please, it was just a bit of fun! Why are you so upset?

King:(italics=internal monologue) Because No, wait! I can't tell her that; it's too soon. Bailey, just please listen for a moment... This is the kind of party where normally the groom-to-be would 'get fresh' as you put it, with other girls. But you're the only one I want, and I was just telling Daryl that when you suddenly popped up. Also, the kind of drinks you were offering me would put me into a state where I could possibly end up 'getting fresh' with someone else, and I really don't want that. I hope that explanation is good enough for her to understand... *sigh* No, she couldn't...
I don't know. The seriousness is getting to me. ...

At least he's not asking them to repeat the whole take. Getting the dialogue right every time is horrible work!

I thought that was called a "knee pop"

well whatever he did, the end result is that the link is for "https://www.housepetscomic.com/housepet ... f=2&t=2434" and removing the one of the "housepetscomic.com/"s takes you to the right page. I don't bother looking at html, nor do I know if Diss has to directly edit the html to fix it

back on topic, I had a difficult time reading the sound effect in the second panel

If you leave out the "HTTP:" it turns into a "site local" link and tacks "http://siteaddress/" onto the front. That's where the extra one came from.

I wouldn't like to be hugged by Bailey when she's mad. Imagine the third panel but with an angry Bailey: King would be asphyxiated and then his back broken.
Wait a minute, they are not wagging tails!! They are faking!! :o

Now I wonder if the background is actually the streets at night or a stage background and all of this was a performance.

ok so i think rock is intentionally trying to get hurt by king,from his bio.....The least worried about money, Rock will nevertheless get himself into enormous amounts of trouble with the fewest tools necessary.....hmmmm i think this may turn very very interesting......
