The Sims 2 is going to the dogs - and for that matter, to the cats, guinea pigs and birds too! The addition of a new friend is guaranteed to enrich the daily lives of your Sims! Not only will players have the opportunity to choose from a variety of existing breeds, and hot designer mixes, but they'll also be able to personally design their new friend with the Create-a-Pet feature. Choose from dozens of popular dog and cat breeds like Schnauzer and Siamese, or create a unique cat or dog by modifying their features and body type. Teach the pets tricks, take them for a romp in the park to meet other furry friends, or buy them toys, beds, and much more.
