365 days of SL, day 280:


(Click for larger — 1920x1033 PNG, 2806 KiB)

Last night, one of the rubber ponies (see day 275 was converted into a rubber reindeer — it's season-appropriate, after all! :) We then went to the wintery, christmasy sim we'd visited recently (see day 257) to take pictures of the result. I think this one turned out rather cute, don't you?

Location: Phoenix in Flames (109, 228, 40) (The North Pole Sleigh-RIde Adventure!)

It reminds me of that pony nose you took a picture of in Iceland (that nose made an impression on me so I still remember it exactly!).

I posted this on my journal a few days ago when I found it. I'm convinced it is the best 26 seconds on the internet:

Oh, which one? This, or this? (Or another one entirely?)

That's a cute video, too. ^^ Sort of reminds me of this picture of a dog's nose that I saw a while ago when looking at the Wikipedia entry on rhinariums, but the one in the video is cuter.

And so's the dog, too. I don't know how dogs manage, but something about them is just utterly lovable, especially when they've got long fur.

The brownish one with the golden mane is the one I was thinking of :)

OMG that entry on rhinariums... how did I ever miss it?

I agree with you about dogs, only for me the length of the overall snout is what does it for me rather than fur length (ie I prefer say a collie or shepherd nose to a pug).

Glad you liked the video!

Oh yeah, I agree about snout length, too. In fact, I'd say that I generally tend to prefer more wolfish-looking dogs, including most spitz-type dogs (although that's not a hard and fast rule).

Pugs can be cute, but I tend to pity them more than anything else. Super-deformed breeds always make me wonder just how the dogs feel and how healthy they really are.

Rough collies are definitely among my favorite breeds, OTOH; they have such elegant faces, too. But I also like others a lot, and of course it's not just about looks, anyway: character and personality is also important.

I grew up with an Alaskan malamute so I wonder how much of my bias is just being more accustomed to that particular look. But as you say, it really is the personality that can seal the deal with any individual dog.

Pugs and others like them seem to be the mammalian version of the bubble eye goldfish. Most seem happy enough but their quality of life certainly could be better if we didn't muddle their breeding.

Alaskan malamutes are lovely dogs. There used to be one in the neighborhood, one of the biggest dogs I've ever seen, but very gentle as well, if perhaps a little reserved — but then I'm told that mallies often are, not exhibiting the same enthusiasm about meeting strangers as some other breeds (which, given their size etc., is probably a good thing).

My family never had a dog when I grew up, unfortunately; I don't think my parents liked them so much. If I wasn't living alone, I'd be sure to get one myself and enrich my life, though.

Couldn't agree more about pugs etc., too.
