I can't wait to find out what "Gallifrax" actually means, or perhaps...is. In which case, something tells me it's probably horrifying.

But great to see that we're having another Peanut and Grape arc now. Feels like it's been quite a while since one of those.

Yes, I know that is a bit hackneyed...
Huh, I think the concept is quite intriguing, actually. Well, one way or another, I'm quite interested to see where this goes.

Also, am I the only one who understood what "p sure" meant immediately? d: (and that pun was inexplicably beautiful, as always)

Parallel universes sounds a lot like the technique Peanut used for his Spot comic. Everything was actually virtual reality, retroactively negating pretty much everything Spot did up to that point. I would say it is an effective technique to explore possibilities that may not be considered possible in the current universe. Like the Gallifrax dimension for instance...

Slightly off topic if no one has asked, does anyone else notice grapes art style changed a little?

It has, since Rick changed the art style some time ago. Probably didn't notice because we haven't had too many close ups of Grape in a while, since there have been other characters in the spotlight. There's a lot of characters to keep track of! Some changes have been subtle, some rather dramatic.

Hmm well I don't know when the change happened, but in this strip, well art is art and it's his comic. I'd hate to influence him, but I don't particularly like this specific art style he has chosen for her. My opinion though.

They didn't say "Facebook", they said "FB", which could mean almost anything ,really.

Your joke has backfired.

I actually thought of Gary Gygax as soon as I read the word in the comic.

You are thinking about the Minecraft dimension.

I think this is the first time we see this new look.
The purple on her face is taking over. Soon there will be nothing left but a hairy, purple ooze spread all throughout the the floor, devoid of all rational thought and feasting on all that it can reach, probably in a vain attempt to fill it's empty existence.

20th century fox? Given that this is the year 2019, that fox must be dead by now. Sadface! : (

^"Clears throat", well no it's just she seems well, not as the Grape as we know her to be. She seems more dog in this strip in my opinion. If that's where Mr. Griffin wants to take her, by all means. Perhaps it's her attitude and emotion on her face that makes her look the way she does.

Grape turned into a dog? Well, how's that for a plot twist?

If Grape became a dog, then not only is GrapeNut guaranteed to happen, but most of the Hewlett Packard (HP) cast would have a Heroic BSOD. After all, we all know that Grape likes to tease.

You know, green grapes are sour, but I think this one is sweet =) Looking forward to Gallifrax, and maybe Peanut will have some souvenirs for Grape!

I noticed Grape's design was different, too. Not much to do with the art style change, in previous 2013 strips you can see she was closer to the old design.

I dunno, I kinda like it. Does look more doglike, though.

It'd be like we went back in time to the beginning of Housepets! where they looked the same!

The huskies all looked like cats back in the old days.

Fox will deny it, though. =P

Confession time!
When I was reading Housepets! for the first time (August 2012), I thought that Fox's name was most fitting since he REALLY looked similar to a fox to me.

Hewlett Packard! You deserve the Nobel for Literature!
I think the Heroic BSOD will either come after everyone finds out King is also Joel, or that Sabrina dates Fido.*
Though Joel/King's proposal to Bailey** may have also gotten her to stop reacting for a second, there.

Au contraire! For me, green grapes (The kind of grape that becomes a lightest kind of green after maturing, that is.) are, for me, the sweetests of both!


*Joey dressing like a cat and dating Squeak doesn't count because I'm sure everyone knows that already. Though the time he saw Peanut's cat drawing and uttered "I want to be in her skin." may have also broken lil' Sandwich.
**Hey, if Tarot marries Peanut, would he change his surname to "Sandwitch?"

Poor Grape. Everything Max has to offer are boring dates in their own time and dimension...
