If you're contemplating adding a new critter to your Sims' lives, this newsletter is the place to get information about different breeds, pet personalities, training pets, and more. In this issue we'll cover creating pets, choosing between breeds, and how to customize a dog or cat to best suit your Sims' family.</p> <div style="float: left; width: 320px; padding: 10px;"> <p><strong>CREATING AND CUSTOMIZING PETS</strong><br /> So you want to bless your Sims with a new bundle of doggie or kitty bliss... well you've come to the right place. In Create-A-Pet, you can pick from the most popular dog and cat breeds or use one as a starting point to create a designer pet like the Schnoodle (Schaunzer + Poodle) or Puggle (Pug + Beagle). Or, mix and match different face and body features to create your own unique breed.</p> <p><img src="internal:sites/simsnetwork.com/files/news/2006/20060817-trainer-title_nosetail.gif" alt="The Sims 2 Pets" /></p> <p><strong>Name, Gender, Size, and Age</strong><br /> Is your Boxer a Fifi or a Brutus? Give your pet the perfect name, then pick its gender and age (adult or elder), and write a short life story for it. If you're creating a dog, you can also decide whether it's a large or small dog. (Note: Pet aging is only available in the PC version.)</p> <p><strong>Choose a Breed</strong><br /> From Siamese to German Shepherd to Pug, choose one of dozens of breeds as a starting point.</p> <p><strong>Coat Colors and Markings</strong><br /> White and fluffy or dark and sleek, select your pet's coat color and fur type, and then add markings like spots, socks, eye patches, and stripes.</p> <p><strong>Physical Features</strong><br /> Make adjustments to its face and body parts. Floppy or pointy ears, a thin or chubby body, a long snout or stubby nose--the possibilities are endless.</p> <p><strong>Collars</strong><br /> Put their best paw forward--give your Sims' pets a touch of style with a collar. Pets with collars have a higher chance of being returned if they run away, so this is one step you don't want to skip.</p> <p><strong>Personality</strong><br /> Just like Sims, pets' personalities affect how they get along with others, how they amuse themselves, and how much they want to interact with others. For example, an aggressive dog is more likely to growl at other Sims and pick fights with other dogs, while a genius cat learns tricks easier than a less intelligent one.</p> <p><a href="internal:sites/simsnetwork.com/files/news/2006/20060817-trainer-pettrainer_shephard.jpg" rel="lightbox"><img src="internal:sites/simsnetwork.com/files/news/2006/20060817-trainer-title_customizingpet.gif" alt="The Sims 2 Pets" /></a><br /> <span style="font-size: 85%;">Make adjustments to almost every part of your pet.</span></p> <div style="clear:both;"><strong>Coat Shape</strong><div style="width: 220px; float: right;">Determine what your pet's coat is like: thick and fluffy or smooth and sleek.
