AN OUTSTANDING SL PET — Develops an individual personality and learns from experience, praise, or training that you provide!

RESPONDS TO COMMANDS IN CHAT — Reacts like a real life pet but more obediently! No HUD needed.

EATS, DRINKS FOR FUN — Optional food and drinking bowls are available from VKC Approved Vendors. Food or drink is never required, not to keep your VKC Dog alive nor to enable him to learn new tricks.
