We haven’t had any kind of promo in ages, so how about a little giveaway for Blizzard’s new charity fundraiser pet: Dottie the baby alpaca?

To enter, just reply with your answer to the following question:

If alpacas became tameable as hunter pets, which colour would you tame (see a full list here), and what would you name it?

To qualify you must have been registered on the Petopia forum before I posted this. It’s not a promo to attract views, it’s just a little fun for people who have stuck with the site :)

I haven’t set a specific deadline but I’ll check back in a few days :)

I can't decide between white, red, and black, but the name would be Woolie.

Hmmm, I dunno which one I'd tame. Probably either red or black. I've always been fond of the name Mitzi for a Alpaca. Just sounds so cute.

Bit of a longshot here, but when I was younger, there was a little old couple that lived on the riverfront next to a shopping district of sorts here (as in various big brand stores like Toys R' Us and Wal*mart), and they had a few farm animals. When I was a wee lad, and my dad took me to get a new toy or game, I'd always peek out the window and see their small farm. They didn't have much in the way of big animals, and at most I would usually see a chicken or two. However, they had one particularly odd animal on their farm. Little boy me didn't know what the hell an alpaca was, so I said "that dog looks weird" to my dad. As we were driving, he didn't exactly have a chance to look and correct me. Another day, he came home and told me that the "weird dog" was an alpaca. Since this was before the internet was a common thing, I went to my local library and asked the librarian "what's an alpaca?", and they directed me to some books for animals. Being a kid, I'd obviously forget stuff sometimes, and I eventually forgot what an alpaca was. When we drove by again, I asked my dad "What was that weird dog called again?", and my dad didn't know what I was talking about at first. 20~ years later, that little farm is gone now, as are all the animals. I'm sure that old couple moved on or something, but the "weird dog" and other farm animals are long gone.

To this day, I still have trouble differentiating llamas from alpacas, but they will always be "weird dogs" to me. So, since the old couple had a big old brown alpaca, I'd tame a brown one and call it "Dog".

Hmm.. I'd likely go with the brown one. If brown wasn't tameable, then my next choice would be the yellow one. Those two colors look best to me.
As for name.. Oh gosh. Well, if I were able to get the brown one, I'd go for Sharron. For yellow, I'd name it Flaffy ;P

Thanks everyone! It was great to read your ideas and your reasons behind them :)

As for winners: everyone gets a pet!

Could you please PM me with your region? I have a feeling you can only gift pets to players in the same region as the shop from which they were bought (unless there's a change I'm unaware of). Also, if you'd like me to gift Dottie directly to your account please send me your email address battle net tag. But otherwise I can just buy a code from your regional shop and PM it back to you here.

I originally said that your battle.net tag was an option, but unfortunately it's not really practical. It turns out Blizzard won't let me gift a pet to someone who isn't a friend, but if I add them as a friend it still won't let me send the pet unless we've been friends for three days :P

Thanks folks :) I'm glad you all love your Dotties, and thanks for all being part of the community here. :)

I think I just need to hear from GormanGhaste now. If I missed anyone else or your codes aren't working please let me know.
