Hello there! I felt like documenting some of my petz and their adventures while I'm naturally raising a small group for fun. I tend to prefer just playing with my petz and usually am too lazy (or get overwhelmed) to document their adventures-- so for my enjoyment, here are some goals and expectations!
-- "Naturally raising" is a term used to describe opening your game each day and letting your petz age/grow naturally, playing with your petz while not using the PetzA sliders/ "Mate two petz"/ "Instant birth"/ "Make babies grow up". I actually enjoy never looking at sliders unless I want to figure out something scientific.
-- I want to do some "scientific" research for the hacking community by trying to figure out where/how the pet attributes express themselves through animations/pet actions. I will be guessing my petz' attributes/personality traits through my posts. If you're curious about the hacking community, I recommend checking out Reflet 's website and Discord: reflettage.wixsite.com/yabiko
-- I don't do a strict daily journal unless I'm in the mood-- I like playing with and talking about my petz daily lives on Discord and will probably post a summary here. I get overwhelmed when I think/try to record entire days of my petz life (that's a ton of work and I admire those that do!)
-- Feel free to post questions/ comments <3
And time for some family tree stuff to be kept in this first post--
Family Tree Clicking on the photo will take you to someplace with more info on the pet! Ongoing construction!
This story will focus on a little group of petz for now but I have to introduce the family parents a bit first and their story--
Bunni was so good, that Santa might be out of luck come December 2021 ;) Ritzy is really quite special!
She snuffs most toyz and runs with her nose so far in the air, its no wonder she trips every 5 seconds when running. She always makes these faces like she's judging me or seems annoyed at me. She especially barks at me whenever I switch applications and ignore her 💦💦
She also absolutely hates all clothes... like every article of clothing is evil.
Seriously she's so dramatic...
Her spot placement is super adorable-- she has these three dots on her left shoulder that form a little triangle and she has a Madonna mole on her left jowl. (too bad none of that will show up in pose shows... 😔)
Both her parents are SGCh (or more it seems! Those points as of today 😱!!) so she has some big shoes to fill <3 Ritzy looks so much like her mother 😍! And apparently she gets her poodle-y-ness from her dad's side supposedly. I wonder if mona has explaining there 🙈
If I had to predict-- I'd say she has high naughtiness, high finnickiness, low patience, low kindness, high independence, high confidence, low acrobatics, low nurturing, medium intelligence, and low messiness.
She's pretty over dramatic with her emotions-- except when she meets other petz. She tends to completely ignore them-- which made me wonder if she even likes others? But she definitely became sad when I put away the first pet she met photo'd above (and he seemed to also like her too!)
For those curious if I was correct about her attributes and want to discuss lengthy topics on Petz A.I.: I was pretty wrong on a few fronts here wow-- she's got low independence-- which I guess explains her willingness to pose and she does like attention from her owner. She's got medium confidence. Surprisingly, she has high kindness and high nurturing!? And medium kindness. Okay haha-- I guess I have a lot to learn about these attributes.
Naughtiness is the easiest for me to spot at this moment. Usually it's a pet bats things from the carrying case or knock petz over (tripping them) or wanting things out of reach all the time? But I have a hard time telling that between low kindness... hmm will have to keep playing Petz!
Hiver was adopted from the Duke's Group Advent Calendar 2020-- he was donated by Rho !
I actually didn't quite plan to naturally raise him... Ritzy kind of decided that! I happened to have both in my game around the same time and they got along so well <3 I thought that because of Ritzy's poodle-y-ness that she wouldn't make friends easily.
He's a sweet little dude-- curious but also kind of shy. He seems to care more about others than about himself. And for this reason every pet seems to obsessively tackle him.
He's absolutely obsessed with Ritzy.
Stalks Ritzy and picks up the toy that she snuffed and chases her with it-- maybe she'll want it later.
Too bad she ignores him most of the time.
But he still tries....
Is there hope for this little casa nova?
I've been recording and trying to guess traits that petz have as part of a raising project I'm doing.
With Hiver, I 100% knew he had low naughtiness and was kind of stuck on whether he displayed high patience or kindness (I have a hard time telling them apart).
Turns out he has high kindness but low patience. Which does explain this situation--
THOR! Omigosh, thank you so much for tagging me in this. I absolutely LOVED reading everything you have written so far~! I'm sooo happy that you're enjoying being Ritzy's owner. You take such amazing care of her! ^^
It's super interesting to hear about all her little quirks and personality traits. I know you're really into that kinda thing, so I thought it would be fun to share with you her parents genetics to see where she gets her traits from!
It looks like her eye color, low independence, and medium confidence comes from her father! He loves to pose for the camera too. He even strikes a poodle pose every now and then xD Although, unlike Ritzy, he doesn't run around with his head up in the air and he absolutely loves all clothes, haha.
Something really cute, that I noticed you pointed out, is that Ritzy has a TRIFORCE (ahaha) mark on her left shoulder just like her mama!! That's sooo adorable! I love it!!!
Let me know if there's any other info or anything you'd like to have~
!!! T-thank you for taking the time here Bunni I seriously appreciate it! Wow-- Ritzy is really like similar to her father except for some reason, Ritzy's finickiness is super high compared to her parents! The only thing that Ritzy and dad are truely opposite in is acrobatics-- I basically am not doing hoop or flying disk with this princess-- NOPE.
And she inherited a lot of her looks from mom it seems haha because personality is all daddy ;) But something interesting about Stardust is she's one of the few dogz I've seen with a quirkiness value that isn't 0 🤔
During the peak of January's petz stupor-- when you're looking at your Adopted Petz folder in awe and slight shock-- not sure where these all came from or what to do with them... This is when I adopted Mikkel.
In my defense, this is a result of talking about cute adoptions on a certain somebody's website *cough cough* Just Dandy-- that has me browsing and leaving with a cutie. I regret nothing though because Mikkel is just-- well you'll see!
Mikkel is a poodle personality-- which was honestly an unexpectedly pleasant surprised! But he's a bit different than other poodles. Yes, he does strut around like it's nobody's business, but he is more friendly towards other petz. He's really great as an Obedience dog and I'm excited to get him in various shows! He's been a pleasure to train and play with-- even though he's a poodle.
He actually has 0 finickiness so he doesn't actually "poodle run"-- I didn't notice before because he struts thanks to his poodle personality. I was right about the high kindness too. So far all my petz are pretty low in the acrobaticness and intelligence department 😭
Not only was he a cutie of his litter-- but his parents caught my attention. I really love adopting petz with a little bit of history/stories:
Dandy's Unexpected Wonder Theodore is the name of a character that Penny @ Just Dandy played in a D&D game I ran-- so this pleases me greatly.
Dandy's Milky Boi And Mr. Moo is one of the cutest companions that Penny @ Just Dandy owns!! ❤ I've been eyeing him and love him to bits.
And both of these guys are showing champions with great lines!
Since I happened to adopt him around the same time as I was raising Ritzy and friends, I decided to introduce him to the bunch.
Ritzy immediately hated Mikkel. Didn't even give him any chances. Just NOPE.
They absolutely hate each other! But, Mikkel got along really well with the rest of the puppies, Timber and Hiver seemed to be good friends with him! So he stayed in my game.
Timber wanted to join in on angry barking so he decided to fight Hiver who is very confused.
I thought that it'd be ideal fun for Ritzy to find love with an absolutely drop-dead gorgeous Great Dane from Buck (I believe an oldie from the Duke's Group Advent Calendar 2019!) named Timber.
And Timber is certainly obsessed with Ritzy. He likes to stare at her constantly.
Timber being ignored by Ritzy who just wants to run around with the food bowl-- this is a typical day of my Petz:
All of them together are really cute honestly and I had a lot of fun making graphics and watching them grow up!
I'm honestly surprised because I've never actively played with two hating-each-other angry petz before-- I usually just go "okay we'll find you a new friend". But I just ignored it and I realized that they kind of grew up o:
So after being rejected by his childhood sweetheart, Hiver decided to put himself out on the market--
Name: Hiver Gender: Male Gender(s) you’re attracted to: Female Species you’re attracted to (catz, dogz, wildz): Dogz Tell me about yourself, what’s your personality like: I’m just a pretty happy-go-lucky fellow, looking for a friend or maybe something more. It didn’t quite work out with my first lady friend, and it’s probably unwise to pine over a lady who’s got her love and kid, so I’m hoping to find someone else. Likes/dislikes: I don’t really dislike anything, but I like the stick and fluffy dog toyz What are your hobbies: Fetching sticks, gardening, running around Describe your ideal date: Smelling flowers and chasing vermin out of the garden-- maybe a snack and nap afterwards Favorite memory: When I was finally brave enough to give a rose to the girl I liked Introvert or extrovert: Introverted (maybe a little shy) Early bird or night owl: I can stay up all night
Name: Taken Gender: Female Gender(s) you’re attracted to: Male, Female Species you’re attracted to (catz, dogz, wildz): Dogz Tell me about yourself, what’s your personality like: Just a girl that loves contemplating life, the universe, and how best to chase the Star ball! Likes/dislikes: I could play with the Star Ball all day long! What are your hobbies: Trotting, skygazing, playing fetch with the Star Ball! Describe your ideal date: A romantic dinner, a game of fetch with the Star Ball, and stargazing on a summer night.
And for fun, let’s get a little more detailed... Favorite memory: Star Ball! - Just kidding! When I got initiated into the super exclusive Show Team! Although I still haven't entered a show yet... Introvert or extrovert: Extrovert!! Early bird or night owl: Why not both?
Name: Splendor Gender: Female Gender(s) you’re attracted to: Male Species you’re attracted to (catz, dogz, wildz): Dogz Tell me about yourself, what’s your personality like: Well I just became a SCGh today so I'm looking to settle down and find some love! Even though I look so striking and beautiful like something a freakin queen would own, I am quite a goofball. Likes/dislikes: I like being watered!! Go figure! What are your hobbies: I like running, chasing, and playing! Describe your ideal date: CHASING Favorite memory: Eating leftovers! Introvert or extrovert: Extrovert! Early bird or night owl: ALL THE BIRDS

Likes/dislikes: I love when others bring me toyz, treatz, flowers from the garden, etc. A good pet or belly rub here or there is always appreciated as long as they're being delicate on my gorgeous fur. It's especially thrilling to me when someone refers to me as "your highness" as it really shows me just how brilliant and observant they are. My only dislike is not getting 100% of someone's attention. What are your hobbies: Licking myself, petz watching (and judging), trying on the crown from the closet, chasing after balls (not the stick, too dirty), and taking long naps on the satin heart pillow. Describe your ideal date: My ideal date would honestly consist of a bunch of eligible bachelors tending to my every need. I would love to be showered in gifts, flowers, etc and told just how perfect I am! Favorite memory: Ritzy's baby shower, of course! Introvert or extrovert: Extrovert Early bird or night owl: Early bird
RebeccaMonkey coordinated the whole thing and sent these dogz on the date of their life--!
Taken has been matched with Hiver! Taken enjoys the Star Ball. Let me repeat that, Taken enjoys the Star Ball very much! And Hiver is a little fellow who enjoys running around the garden and fetching sticks. I suggest that the two of you have a nighttime garden date! The garden is perfect for you two to play a game with fetch with the Star Ball of course. You both enjoy fetch and where best to do it than outside? And seeing as how you both enjoy the nightlife, why not have a little romantic stargazing too? After fetch, break out the satin pillows and look up at the night's stars. Just try not to fall asleep! And of course stargazing during a summer night is no fun without a couple snacks, so don't forget to pack a few things to nibble on, or start a little fire and make some s'mores! It may not be a 5-star restaurant dinner but the setting is so romantic!
And after that first date, I believe the two will be perfect together as Taken can invite Hiver to support her and cheer her on at her shows (of which she is part of an exclusive team)! And Hiver will have someone new to garden for and give roses to 💘
Splendor has been matched with Hiver! Hiver enjoys gardening and giving his lovely lady some flowers, and Splendor enjoys the quiet retired life in which she has time to run around and chase birds outside. I suggest that the two of you have an afternoon picnic date in the garden! You both enjoy running around outdoors so why have a date inside? A picnic is lovely as one can show their love through cooking. Splendor loves leftovers so why not a mini potluck-style picnic? Both dogz can bring food to share with the other. And after eating, while your food is still settling down, Hiver can show Splendor his garden and playfully water her with the watering can. Once the two of you are ready to play again, Hiver and Splendor can end the afternoon running around and chasing things, specifically chasing all the birds (and other vermin invading the garden)!
And after that first date, I believe the two will be a perfect match as Splendor is looking to settle down with a good boy after her showing days. While a serious beauty queen, she's still a goofball who would love to run around the garden with Hiver 💘
Lavish has been matched with Hiver! Hiver is okay with getting down and dirty outside. He tends to his garden and chases out all the vermin trying to eat his plants. Lavish may not be a show dog but she is certainly a good show dog judge! She knows what she likes and knows her worth. She's looking for a loving partner who she can give her all to and receive all the love in return. I would suggest a morning date indoors at the (P5) salon for Hiver and Lavish! Everyone knows you should garden in the morning, so after Hiver is done tending to his plants and getting dirty, he can meet Lavish in their salon. Of course he should bring her roses from his garden as a gift, can't show up empty-handed! After the two get done having a spa day and cleaning off, they can lounge around on satin pillows in the closet. Hiver can present Lavish with a crown from the closet and Lavish can judge Hiver on his tuxes and hats in a mini fashion show!
After that first date, I believe these two are a perfect match as they can settle down together and give each other their all. Hiver can chase animals in the garden and bring Lavish flowers and his favorite toyz, while Lavish lounges at the window, people petz-watching her love and the other dogz passing by 💘
For those that couldn't catch the Stream (or the VOD has been deleted because Twitch only holds them for 14 days after the stream), here's a re-cap with some photos!
Hiver was extremely excited for his date and even dressed for the occasion:
THREE LADIES-- ONE CHOICE-- WILL HIVER FIND LOVE?
Ready to meet the 3 ladies-- who would be lucky to be chosen by him?
The date did not go well at all-- Hiver was very much so not interested in Taken...
SPLENDOR The second date was with Splendor of Rho The date started pretty disastrously! Splendor has to watch Hiver eat an entire plate of food while she whined and cried for it! 😬 I was very sure she'd hate him.
But then 🎆🎇! They hit it off super well and the audience was sure that this was Hiver's girl. But, Hiver still had to meet the last lady. It wouldn't be fair to the sport of the show.
