Happy Love Your Pets Day!

Unread post by Wain » Fri Feb 21, 2020 9:36 am

Apparently that's a thing, anyway.

I started a thread on Twitter asking people to post pics of their beloved pets, real-life or in-game:
https://twitter.com/wowpetopia/status/1 ... 5447954432

But if you don't use Twitter feel free to post here (though since we already have threads devoted to both maybe it's not so important here!)

I posted about my old dog, Freya, who was immortalized in the game by a kind developer. She's next to me out the back of the Hunters Lodge:

This was her in real life, as a pup and as an old lady:

She was 15 when she died, but I still feel like part of me is missing, after all these years. Seeing her added to the game was without a doubt the best thing I've ever experienced in WoW. After they made her colour tameable I got a wolf in that colour and named her Freya as well, and she's now my main companion.

Freya is beautiful, and how wonderful to have her immortalized in the game! :hug:

These are Zima and Papu, our family's beloved dogs. Zima is the bigger girl, a rescue dog with quite a bit of fears and traumas, although three years on, she's far more comfortable and confident than when we adopted her.

The little furball is my mother's dog, but he stays with us a lot and is definitely an equal member of the family. The kids adore him and his brave, confident mood. He and Zima complement each other perfectly, as she is nervous of larger dogs and feels comfortable with Papu, even though his enthusiasm and energy sometimes clearly bore her. :D

How awesome they added your pet to the game Wain. Mozag your dogs looks so cute.

Milo is the best cat ever. Despise him being impossible we just love him. He is a velcro cat. He is everywhere I am. Bed, playing computer, on the toilet, in the shower etc. He needs to be near me. Hubby is a bit jaloux. Milo likes him too but he clearly prefurs me for some reason.

Just look at the happy face I look at when playing computer ..And getting killed /write the wrong code due to Milo laying half way cross the keyboard

I'm a bit late, but Love Your Pets Day? That's a dumb holiday; I love my pets EVERY day, not just once a year! It's a pain to catch my cats with a camera since they know I want to take photos, but I have two abandoned cats I've taken in. One's a male tabby (I think? Orange with darker stripes) who's a fat and lazy little turd, and the other's a female tuxedo that loves to rub against my elbow and pee for almost five minutes at a time. Both were abandoned when their owners up and left without them on separate days, and they were strays that warmed up to me over months. Took forever to convince them to come inside during cold nights, but now they're indoor cats that enjoy the luxury of my (now theirs) couch.

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.
Oh wait...you can't!

Name the game these characters are from, and I'll be amazed.
