I know I already posted today, but I've gotten so far ahead of my postings that I'll probably end up posting two breeds of each species per day until I'm done. I've done all but four--I just have two Catz and two Dogz breeds left to go, and I'll be done... with this portion, anyway.

I'm going to, at the very least, attempt to go eight generations. And what's more... with twenty of the thirty breeds, I'll be starting over. ^^; I'm going to breed the original breeds in Petz 3. I found my Dogz 3 and Catz 3 discs in my closet--along with Petz 1 and Petz 2. Weirdly enough, though, I have no clue where my Petz 4 or Petz 5 discs are... in fact, I don't think I ever actually technically installed Petz 5 on my desktop computer. I think I just moved all the files over from my laptop. This is important, actually, because since Petz 3 is such an old game (1998), when I tried to install it on my desktop (Windows Vista), it told me I needed Windows 95 or 98 to install. Hello! Blast from the past there...

Anyway, after unsuccessfully seeing if there was any way to emulate Windows 95 on Vista, I fired up my old laptop from college (Windows XP), waited about half an hour for it to get fully booted up, and tried installing it on there. That worked. :)

If you're wondering why I'm going to breed the official ones, the ones I'm hopefully going to put up for download on my website, in Petz 3, it's because a lot of people play Petz 3 or 4 rather than 5. And while files from Petz 3 and 4 can move within those two games and up to Petz 5, Petz 5 files, including any Petz bred in Petz 5, even if they have no Petz 5 exclusive breeds in them, can't be transferred back. It's for that reason that a lot of Petz websites are Petz 3+--the Petz are bred in 3 or 4 so that anyone can use them. Now, like I said, I don't know what happened to my Petz 4 discs (they probably would have installed on my desktop without a problem), but I do have Petz 3... and it's on my desktop now, thanks to my handy-dandy flash drive. That means that people with any version of the game will be able to adopt the Petz I breed there. Granted, breeding them in Petz 3 will take a lot longer (even with PetzA), because in 3 and 4 Petz can only have one baby at a time. Gah ^^; It's gonna take awhile... but the results will be for everyone, not limited to only Petz 5 owners.

As far as the Petz 5 breeds, though... I'm probably going to stop at five generations with them (except maybe golden retrievers, just to see if I can't get more colors, since they're pretty and all). Two reasons--one, since not as many people have Petz 5 or make usage of the Petz 5 breeds (I really don't, despite having Petz 5), I don't think there's as much of a demand for them... and two, the results are either boring or downright bizarre. You'll see the next update what I'm talking about. O_o

Anyhoo... enough blabbing about that. You're here for the pictures of cute animals, right? ;)

Tomorrow's first post will be Egyptian maus and German shepherds, and you can all say "WTF" along with me.
