Walnut loves swimming in the family pool. Thankfully Sim pools don’t have filters to clog with dog hair.
When Nostromo grew up into a teenager, I decided to go a different route from her childhood outfit. Instead of pink frilly dresses, I put her in a classic Bookworm Hipster outfit.
It’s not anyone who can pull off a turtleneck sweater with that much aplomb.
Then to compensate for the neutral clothing, I slapped a bunch of makeup on her face.
It… does little to humanize her appearance.
She has become a little obsessed with the Whack-A-Gnome game that I bought them.
She is constantly having wishes to score more and more points with the darned thing. I can relate, but seriously, the noise the game makes is driving me insane. It’s only a matter of time before I delete it for the sake of my own sanity.
Meanwhile, in dog news! I adopted the ugliest dog my town had available. Her name is Eve, and she is funny-lookin’.
The Sims 3 isn’t a kill shelter, but I still felt virtuous, adopting an ugly elder dog.
Here is something that will be of interest to other Sims players: two elderly dogs CAN have puppies together. Eve and Walnut had two puppies. I named them Apple…
… and Autumn.
I was going to send Walnut and Eve out for adoption in order to free up some space in the house. But then Walnut and Autumn slept curled up together in Walnut’s bed, and I just didn’t have the heart.
“Well, I’ll just send Eve away, then,” I thought. But before I could adopt her out, she realized that Nostromo was leaving school, and stood by the door waiting for her to get home.
So they all were allowed to stay. I mean, how could I resist?
