[ Le Gasp ]

Title Text: O.O

Aha, we all knew it all along and this won't have any bearing on Fido's relationships or social status!

WOOO.

Been waiting for this for a while. Fox doesn't look too pleased. Nice to see Grape back to being a girl.

Good Strip.

Wow. Max is shocked, Fox is shocked (and looks downright broken, really), and Bino can finally have something to belittle his older brother about. Peanut, Grape, and Tarot, however, just another show.

I know we all knew this was coming but still... wow. I love seeing everyone's reaction to it.

It almost seems like a fanfinc becoming reality. I have no idea how this will affect the rest of the story but odds are things are going to be VERY Different from now on. At least for Fido.

aaaaand, nice to see King and Bailey again!

Also I guess Max didn't know. Though that could be just surprise from Fido actually making the announcement itself

Even Kevin could not do anything with Max. :lol:

Grape likes her beard apparently.

I assume Pokemon is happening in panel 7? the question is, X or Y?
oh wait, this arc started before it was released, which means that isn't temporally possible, unless Housepets universe got it early. dangit, everyone got it before America

Well, well, it finally comes out, and even the alt text is surprised! Max looks like he’s doing what he indicated, and had no idea that Sabrina was into dogs.
Dissension wrote:You'll recall Fox doesn't much care for cat-lovers.
I didn't see it coming that Fox would be affected so much as is hinted at, but that makes sense, and this will shake things up around Babylon Gardens. Fox it seems may have some food for thought about some of his social views, a nice development. Grape, Peanut and Tarot don't seem too surprised, we know that they knew (presume it in Tarot's case). Spit takes can be very amusing, and this one had me giggling. Ralph and Miles will probably also have a nice pair of surprise faces, and Jata should have something to say on that, I believe.

wait a minute, why is fox sitting between King and Bailey? I mean, I understand it from a framing point of view, his mind shattering had to be front and center, but in universe it doesn't make much sense. =P

That's what made this arc possible, otherwise we'd all have no idea. This has been waiting to come out for awhile it would seem, the results are quite fun to ponder :D

I dont think he would be mad because of that, they are really good/close friends, Fox might take it like if Fido didn´t trust him by not telling him ... and that would be a good excuse for giving Fido a hard time ...

Why was Bino watching the wedding? Why, so he can complain about how cats are so horrible and hideous they even condone shotgun weddings, of course!

Either Rick is not sure if he wants Joel/King and Bailey to be toghether forever, or their marriage went into a crisis way sooner than even I expected!

I think Fox looks betrayed because he never even suspected that such a close friend from childhood who he thought he knew like the palm of his.. pawhand? could hold such an unusual secret!

We'd wondered what Sabrina may say
but this is different, for good or ill.

What did he just say? What did he profess?
My ears are up and my face is falling.
I'm stunned and shaken down to the core
(and he's set himself up for a mauling.)

It's great drama for those spectators
chewing corn on their home settee
as his family rants and paranoia raves
while he tests his corps' loyal esprit.
Now he's professed it, where shall they go?
Will she intervene or have Jata bury Fido?

Well stated Fido, well stated. All I can say is, any one of the characters give him trouble this (though I'll probably exempt Bino on this one, since I'm pretty sure he will), I'll be a bit sour at them. I dunno, in my opinion, Fido is risking a lot by making such a statement. So he earns a lot more respect from me.

I think 'he' is referring to Fox, since it looks like King has been on that couch for some time now. At least that's what his posture is telling me.

The only theme that can match this moment is this!

That goes with this comic strip is this one, because Jata is basically forcing Sabrina into marrying him due to some childish promise! Plus, Jata is being a high-horse punk.

Max: Mindblown
Fox: Mindbroken
King and Bailey: "yeah, about that..."
Grape, Peanut, and Tarot: Not a single care was given
:D
I really wonder how Jata will respond to that. I don't think he'd be completely mindblown...
Also, "WHAT IS EVEN THIS DOG". I literally laughed out loud when I read that! :lol:

Seventh panel is the best! Come on, pass me the pop corn, this is getting super interesting! Something tells me that the three of them already know what's going to happen next. Tarot you cheater! X3

Hehe, this seems like one of those so typical moments in whatever romantic-comedy movie. But come on, this MUST had to happen sooner or later, there was no other way to reveal this, and I think Rick did it pretty well. He left us with the intrigue for the next strip and at the same time made ​​sure to make it clear that no one besides Fido will intervene in this matter (and that's one of the reasons of the last four panels, I think).

Now I want to see Sabrina's face. Will she be happy or worried?

What I love the most is the punchline. All that build-up of reactions, and Bino starts chewing the scenery with his bragging... only to be knocked down hard. X3 I love it.

Also love everyone's reactions, but I get a kick how Peanut isn't even bothering to look. What would happen if he missed another important detail?

Well, taxidermy is basically make mummies. If there are mummies of humans in this world and in our world, I don't see why can't exist mummies of animals.

By the way, I want to believe that if Sabrina falls in the pool Fido is going to be the one who saves her.
You know, because I'm starting to think that Dragon will show up and save her at the last moment and then we know how this ends... "or was it?"

Everyone are going to think that all of this was just a dream and everything continues as always.

I think Tarot already told him how this is going to end. She's such a spoilsport. :lol:
