Their hearts thump as one now, these two.
Their passions rewarded in magical
ceremony. A reward to all who know
these two have always been special.

Their Love transcends normality,
driven through hate and fear to Love
through desire and hope and quality
of mercy helped by one above

or not as the case may be found.
This changes, for some, rules.
They say this should not be allowed.
Against them King and Bailey proud
stand, faces glittering like jewels.

Allow them their moment, these two
and let their Love stand and glow.
They have a lot still to go through
but Love can change all that we know.

Um... That's hardly outsmarting, seeing as that's what Pete intended from the very beginning. =P
Pete wants an *angry* dog. So he hardly succeeded as of now.

So here´s a funny fact: in almost all the "End of the Year" strips, Joel/King is present in them:

Year 1
Year 3
Year 4

And now Year 5, the only exception to the rule is Year 2

So Rick, was this planned or is it just a funny coincidence ?

Woot! Go King and Bailey! I love a good wedding! :D :D :D :D :D :D
*Jumps around clapping, cheering and laughing*

The one thing that scene was missing was this song at the moment of the kiss.

5 years already? Where did the time go? Congrats on reaching that milestone, Rick. :D

I would like to thank you for all the wonderful comic strips you created and brought to us, Rick. I really love your work. Please, please continue with your efforts.
Many Thanks.

Don't forget that Pete spent 100,000 years in solitary confinement in this strip. So the subjective time may not be quite the same as the non-subjective time. Also I'm willing to bet the celestial bureaucracy is still trying to figure out if King's a dog or human.

So, Monday we get the ominous epilog with Dragon looking skeptically at Pete and wondering why he's smirking.

Well...in that strip it was Sabrina speaking to King, and I don't think she was referring as 'days' in subjective time.
And I believe that by now the celestial bureaucracy has been helped a lot by today's comic :D :D :D

Wow, has it really only been five years? Feels like I've been following it forever!

The second panel is absolutely beautiful. I just have two queries:

1. I wonder whose voice that is speaking in narration boxes in the second panel? I suspect Pete, though I hope not.
2. Will Bailey get to sniff King's butt now?

1. That was King thinking the most romantic thing ever :D
2. I guess they did that behind the scenes after the end of the Christmas arc :lol:

Grape grabs the bouquet and Peanut and Max start fighting! :lol: :lol:

Jokes aside, I think it will be time for King to call in for that 'boon' Kitsune had promised to him...and *gasp* turn HIM AND BAILEY BOTH INTO HUMANS.
Ohhh, my poor head!

I hope it was, since if it really was Pete...that would be so incredibly ominous.

And did they? I didn't think that they actually had. *goes back to re-read*

Yes, it was King: Rick confirmed me after I asked him in order to do a proper translation. Italian language couldn't have allowed an ambigous meaning to those words, so I asked Rick and voilà! Corgi romanticism at its best! :D :D

Erm, I'm pretty sure he was referring to his deal with Keene's program of equal chances and his new home with the wolves (since we know how he was living with Pete) :?

If you say so... I thought King's speech boxes were always blue, besides that phrase of "moving heaven and earth" was pretty ambiguous.

Congratulations on five years of Housepets! (and putting up with us clowns).

I suspect King may have figured out some back-door way to foil Pete. Mere mortals are always beating demons and demigods at their own games...

I kind of got the impression the first boon was getting adopted by the wolves Milton ferrets Estate. It's been almost three years since then... so this is hardly "soon".

Also, a cameo of a hyperactive ferret named "Kiki" would be cool. maybe one of the people doing guest strips is up to that... :)

you may be right...but again, in *this* case, it's a demigod on the subjective time scale speaking. After all, everything he had said about King able to enjoy his new life eventually proved right...it only took some time for us mortals

I may be new here but... could Kitsune have been talking about Bailey herself? He met her only a few arcs later

You know, psychology defines true love as a love having the following:
  1. Intimacy
  2. Who knows what was said during those phone calls that King and Bailey made during the course of the year. It must have been enough to bring them closer together, much so that King asks Bailey to marry him during Christmas. [b]
  3. Passion
  4. [/b]If the kiss wasn't enough, the two have snuggled when they first met and, assumedly, when Bailey moved in to the Gardens. [b]
  5. And, Commitment
  6. [/b]Marriage is a [b]big[/b] commitment to make. Despite Pete basically threatening King with a return to his human life, King was not fazed at all by it. Everything goes through and they are now married. Certainly, this has to be a commitment.
Going off the subject, I imagine that Monday's strip will be a time skip to one month, when "something's" on the way, all of this was a dream, or they will be divorced. I wonder which of these outcomes will be on Monday's strip, if any of them.

Only time will tell if this love will last. Let's just enjoy it as it stands.
