Gameplay took an unexpected direction this week. I love it when that happens!
First things first. We had a lovely wedding at home.
Well, it was lovely for the Sims who were able to work out how to enter the house, anyway.
Davina wore her frumptastic finest.
As soon as the ceremony ended, she changed into her sweats. A woman after my own heart!
Before I knew it, Jayden had marched her upstairs and was training her on the weight machine.
“Training” in this sense means “Yelling and gesticulating and looking angry.” I imagine that is what it is actually like with a physical trainer in real life. (I wouldn’t know.)
That night, a random little tiny puppy showed up and tried to come inside. SO PITIFUL.
As the snow melted in a sudden early spring rainstorm, it stood out on the lawn looking dejected.
I had not planned to get a dog. Especially not a random dog, because they always turn out ugly. (Which is weird, because Nature has been making random dogs for thousands of years, and most of them look just fine.)
But come ON. Are you really going to be the one to leave the tiny puppy out in the rain in the middle of the night? I sent Jayden out to pick it up.
The puppy seemed to have mixed feelings about this situation.
Before we could get properly acquainted, it decided it was time to run home.
I reiterate my opinion that it’s a good thing The Sims 3 doesn’t have car crashes. That little dot running down the middle of the road is the puppy.
While the puppy slowly toddled its way back home – which was a very long distance, by the way – something caught fire in the dining room. I never did figure out what.
Davina seems to be blaming dinner, but I don’t see how that’s possible.
At the same time, the full moon began to rise.
Okay so anyway, I sent Miles out ahead of the puppy to show up at the adoption center and adopt it. He did this and got home before the puppy had even made it halfway. That puppy was pretty tired by the time she turned around and made it back to her new home!
Meet Bellaboosh. Yes, that is the name that the game gave her. Bellaboosh.
The next day, Davina gave birth. Did I mention she got pregnant? Well anyway, it’s babies all over up in here!
Meet baby girl North, who is an Absent-Minded Couch Potato.
Within a few days, little puppy Bellaboosh grew up. I did not realize that you could give dogs birthday parties, or I would have invited more people.
Yep, that is one ugly dog. Can we talk about the white seam down her front? She has a white seam down her front.
Also, she has one green eye and one gray eye. (???)
Not to mention a slightly cross-eyed expression.
Oh, and a stupid tail.
In fact, she is so ugly that I am thinking about finding an even uglier dog, and breeding them together, and then adopting out the puppies (by virtue of uploading them to the Exchange) for any players out there who want one. I just can’t decide what would be the worst breed to match with her.
Suggestions in the comments, please! Or, if you’re a player and you want to try your hand at creating a super-ugly male dog in order to up the ante, feel free to send me a link to your upload on the Exchange and we can do a thing.
