Last time, I got Pets and my sims could talk to each other, so it’s time for experimenting and stuff!
Since Zhuchka’s learned how to hunt, I send her out to find some collectibles for the family.Dogs are allowed to run all over the moon without a leash.
Zhuchka: DIE PAPARAZZI!
Too bad she couldn’t actually attack him.
After wandering all over town, Zhuchka finally finds something… right across the street. I wonder what it is!
After a hard night of hunting for a leaf, Zhuchka settles down for a well-deserved rest.
This seems like a good place to put the reasoning behind Zhuchka’s name. Originally, I was going to name the dog Pavlov, but the dog with the best traits was a girl. Russian last names change between male/female, and Pavlovna doesn’t have the same ring to it. So I found that Zhuchka was the name of one of Pavlov’s dogs. It’s also the name/nickname of the Russian space dog, although that was unintentional.
Zhuchka automatically goes outside to pee, making her an awesome dog in my book. Even if she is of Satan.
She then tries to destroy the couch, which is… less awesome. Luckily the couch is saved by the animation developers neglecting the possibility of floaty space couches. She sort of gnaws at the air under the couch instead.
Zhuchka gets woken up by the ghosts, though.
Theo: What is this beast?
A dog. You died before they were invented.
The Mendeleevs have a ton of money and all that, so the yard is extended to make room for Zhuchka. But why the hay and jumping pole?
Since the advertising for the pets game was like HORSES HORSES HORSES I decided why not.
D’aww. It’s a baby! His name is Hans and he misses his mommy.
Phosphorous: Why do I have to be the one to make friends with the horse?
Don’t act like you don’t have foal-related wants rolling up, Phosphorous.
Oh my god, the apocalypse is drawing near. That’s nearly a smile.
Phosphorous: Why are there horses on the moon, anyway?
So Phosphorous and Hans bond over their love of beetles for a while.
Silicon also rolls horse-related wants, but Hans doesn’t let her give him a bottle or anything.
Shing: I heard there’s a new place to woohoo now…
HAY ALL OVER THE PLACE.
Now it’s time for birthdays. I wanted to put this off until after Pets came out for a chance to get some of the new traits.
First is Aluminum, who rolled the trait Eco-friendly. Because we’ve already ruined the Earth and he doesn’t want to ruin the Moon, too.
Silicon was second. She is now dramatic.
Silicon: Woe is me, forced to live on the moon, and not a moonicorn in sight!
She’s actually… smiling?
Phosphorous rolled slob. Not like anyone in the family cleans up after themselves anyway.
And we have none of the new traits. But that’s okay! Next time, the Mendeleevs will have three teenagers under one roof. Scary.
