About

Puppies are cute and adorable. You can acquire them from the Puppy Mill area and then rescue them on the mud to build up 'Pinnacle Pound' Reputation. Once you have enough reputation (at least 20,000), and you find a puppy that is your favorite, you can buy a biscuit or two (sometimes five) from Petunia, <2w, s, w, n> from Newbiebin, and feed it to your puppy. At that point, it will grow into a dog and will be yours forever! Dogs eat corpses to stay healthy and they'll fight with you too - but just be careful in those areas that hit around, your dog can die and lose dog experience points. Don't worry too much though, provided that your reputation is still adequate and you have coins on hand, you can always revisit Petunia and <repet>.

Squirrel Chew Toy

Reputation Cost: 150
Coin Cost: 750

Description:
This is a near life-like replica of a squirrel, made out of nearly indestructible vulcanized rubber. A dog could have a lot of fun chewing on this, until he destroyed it, I mean, nearly indestructible doesn't really apply to dogs. This will keep your dog from getting too unhappy if you leave him somewhere he doesn't like... which is anywhere that you're not. At least until it's completely shredded.

Specifically it goes into great detail about how you are willing to sacrifice your own soul in the place of your Dog's... Wow, you are really one selfless owner. Note, it is vital that this contract be carried by YOUR DOG so that Death sees it before he claims the soul, otherwise how is he going to remember? So, make sure you give this to your pup before you go out recklessly endangering his life.

Dog Whistle

Reputation Cost: 25000
Coin Cost: 250000

Description:
This is a dog whistle. You could 'blow' it if you're unable to find your dog and they should come running back. This presumes, of course, that your dog is still alive somewhere out there in the cold, dark world. Using this also means you're a horrible owner who left their dog out there alone. Tsk tsk. Be aware, if your dog was already 'stay'ing, it will continue to stay once you summon it with the whistle until you tell it not to. It is a very obedient dog, after all.

DGH (banned in 39 countries)

Reputation Cost: 70000
Coin Cost: 900000

Description:
This is a dangerous chemical known as Dog Growth Hormone. It's been banned almost MUD-wide due to the violent transformation it makes on young dogs. Combine it with the blood of an existing dog, you can inject this into a puppy and the result will be a full-grown dog equal in power to the source. It's unethical, abusive, and basically evil. But, if you had no ethics and were into animal abuse, torture, and euthanasia, you could use this on a puppy and it would immediately transform it into a dog equal to the one you just murdered.

VETERINARIAN PROFESSION

Item Worn: Veterinarian's Scrubs

These scrubs are covered in a flowery print of yellow and gold petunias. Overall, the effect is very loud and ostentatious. It's almost as if someone had designed clothing to be worn in a pediatrician's office, but went WAY WAY WAY too far. The only thing that could ever appreciate this clothing is something colour blind -- which is where you and your puppy come in.

The vet's scrubs come fully equipped with everything you need to look after your pet dog using the command 'vet'. You can 'heal' at vet level 1, 'incite' at level 10 and 'dodge' at level 35. Your dog will accept 4 commands (maxing out at 12 commands).

See all Professions here.

Vet Commands:

In addition to your normal dog commands, when you choose the Veterinarian profession, you'll also be able to perform:

veterinarian recover,
score,
spammy
Level based profession commands:
Lvl Cmd Description
1 vet heal You heal [dog's name]
10 vet incite You work your dog up into a frenzy!
Note: The incite command will allow your dogs damage to double for ~30 seconds every 12 minutes.
35 vet dodge You ruffle your dog's fur over and over again until he bounces up and down excitedly!


How do I level this profession?


To gain Veterinarian levels, you must use the profession commands. When your dog reaches Level 12, you can use the <dog sicem> command. At this point, you can <vet heal> as needed.

Veterinarian Command Reset


Your commands will reset approximately 1 point every 12 minutes.

Until reboot, your dog will remain happy happy happy without the need for any attention from you, cause you are lazy and won't even walk him, seriously. If you quit, the perk goes *poof* even if it's before the end of boot, but it will survive you going linkdead.

This permanent perk allows you (a human) to merge all your dogs from across all your characters into one, which we will lovingly refer to as The One Dog. The dog owned by the character that actually selects this perk will become The One Dog for the human, so make sure you're on as the character who's dog you want to remain. All other dogs will be abandoned and gone forever, with their experience all merged into The One Dog, which will then be waiting patiently for you in the kennel.
