This showroom is for my original breed mixie dogz.
Pose show ribbons are from Cirrutopia and the trick show ribbons and stars can be found on my website under show graphics. Each dog that reaches SGCh will also have a stamp posted on their profile here - feel free to collect them!
Loreli is a reject from a small fuzzy Bulldog breeding project I did (see: Citrus) who was so pretty I just had to keep her. On a whim I chose her to be my very first show dog, but little did I know I had picked one of the most difficult dogz to pose - a fuzzy Mutt with weird extensions. Needless to say she didn't blow the judges away lol, but I'm proud of her anyway, and she was always a good girl during our countless retake sessions. Her show name is a reference to the Björk song All Is Full of Love.
Aster was bred by Mouse and adopted from the 2020 Whiskerwick Advent Calendar. She's such a pretty and unique dog. I actually named her with asteroids in mind rather than the flower since I associate the color grey with space (moon rocks are grey I guess?). Her show name is a reference to the game/anime Inazuma Eleven - Ryuusei Blade the soccer superpower of one of the alien-themed characters and translates to Meteor Blade.
I don't care much for Tamsins usually, but Gambit popped out randomly while I was breeding a few of my adopted Dalis together and I just couldn't resist that black and white coat, solid black eyes and single visible spot on her chest. I named her after the Queen's Gambit opening move in chess, which her show name also references.
Nix is the granddaughter of Doodle. She's just a stunner, what more can I say! She's named after the Greek goddess of the night, and her show name is a reference to the archetype of the dark mother, a feminine personification of darkness.
Doodle is the son of Faroe and one of the first dogz I bred when I first started playing Petz. He's such an interesting mix of parts, I love watching him romp around with his giant noodly body.
His name is just a very uncreative portmanteau of Dane and Poodle, and his show name is a pun on doodling, i.e. sketching. I honestly didn't expect him to do well at all in shows, but he gave me a pretty great Dane pose and ended up knocking it out of the park. He was an absolute nightmare to pose though - I can press the spacebar for hours and he won't move a single muscle, most likely due to his very high independence.
I bred Pillow during Sheepdog Week in an attempt to grow my Sheepie crew. She's another Faroe descendant like Doodle. She's so adorable and looks so soft, I wish I could reach through the screen and pat her. She's named for her softness, and her show name is a reference to sheets with ridiculously high thread counts, which of course makes them Ultra Soft™!
Faroe is from the first batch of dogz I bred to test out OB breeding, since I had mostly only bred hexed breeds when I first started playing Petz. A lot of my mixie lines can be traced back to him. Looking at him now he's somewhat of an odd duck, but when he popped out I realized that you can actually breed some really interesting and varied things with just the original breeds. I still like the look of him honestly - Sheepie ears are pretty cute on Poodles, and I love that the little spot on his muzzle looks like a mole. I came up with the name Faroe completely spontaneously. Apparently it means "island of sheep," so in a way it fits because he is part Sheepdog. His show name is a reference to his status as one of the first dogz I bred.
Citrus is from a small breeding project I did to improve a much older, similar dog I had named Rattan who had a Dali body and white lids. My goal was just to breed a Mutt body and selfie lids onto her, but this eventually turned into me breeding a whole line of these fuzzy Bulldogs since I like the look of them so much. Her name is totally basic, just a reference to her orangeness, while her show name is a somewhat more obtuse reference to citrus juice concentrate, and the infamous lyrics from the Fort Minor song Remember the Name.
Hylic doesn't have much of a backstory, she's just one of my selectively bred American Bulldogs. She did however lead me to realize that entering Bulldogs in Dali shows is a lost cause. The word hylic is Greek for matter, and is the opposite of psychic, which means soul. Prima materia means "first matter" and is an esoteric alchemical concept, a kind of primitive substance needed to make a philosopher's stone.
