Whooo! The game should be a heck of a lot faster now. I have a bunch of new dog photos that I plan to add in the next week or two as well. I'll let you know as soon as I've posted them.
If you notice any problems please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, enjoy the faster speeds :)

Server Change In December
So we will officially be having a server change in December something or other. I don't have an exact date yet but I will keep you posted. This new server is going to be just for Sim Dog so it should run considerably faster than it has been for the past few months. The game will be down during the move -- you won't loose any time on your upgrades while that happens.
So a few people asked about trainers in my last post. Trainers are about 80% done. You can teach your dogs tricks however I don't have any of the new types of shows done so you won't actually be able to show your dogs in any of the new events. If you're okay with only being able to train your dogs -- and not show them yet -- then I will open trainers so you can at least get started training your dogs to learn new things. Please comment to let me know if you'd rather wait until everything is done or start using them now.

Possible Server Change
I'm looking into switching us to new servers since I've had lots of complaints about the game being slow. I will keep you posted if and when we have downtime as the game is being moved to a new home.

I do apologize for not being as active. I have a lot of things going on at the moment and I'd love to be more active so I will definitely work on that. Here are applications for newspaper staff. I will announce who the new staff members are August 3rd. I plan on only hiring two or three. If we have more then three players that I think are qualified I will hire more. So here is the application. Please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is my email just for the game. It must have the subject of 'Sim Dog Application'. You may abbreviate application if you would like. You may also send it to my game account which is 'Yellow Duck'.
