Founder Info:

Spoiler:
My founder is named Amy Azure, and, as you can see, she is very blue.
Image
I needed to create a dog with her to fulfill the Cats & Dogs requirements, so here is my puppy named (very creatively) Blue!
Image
Blue is actually a Dalmatian, but both her main coat color and her spots are blue. I'm hoping to adopt a male dog to breed her with later, can't wait to see what happens with the genetics!


Heir Poll Results are in!
Spoiler:
Pamela will be the next heir!

Chapter 1:

Spoiler:
To start, I downloaded an empty house from the Gallery, modified and furnished it. Of course I also added my gnome and flamingos! I wasn't sure whether I needed 3 flamingos for Blue, but I decided that more flamingos would obviously be better.
Image
Image
Pretty basic layout. I made sure to have a pet treat crafting station and a fireplace (for reasons which will become apparent later).
After a few days of crafting pet treats to sell, I got the first festival notification: GeekCon. Amy first headed to the American food stall for a hot dog.
Image
I've realized now that I'm really going to need to eat at food stalls a lot in this challenge! I've never gotten the Spice Hound and Chopstick Savvy traits before, so this should be interesting.
Then, Amy participated in the GeekCon activities...
Image
Image
Image
After she got back home, Blue became an adult!
Image
This is good since one of her goals is to teach him all the commands he can learn.
Amy accepted an invite from her neighbor Dennis Kim to alien night at the bar. but there were no aliens.
Image
Oh, never mind, there they are.
Image
Hm, his skin is blue like mine. Are we meant to be?
Image
I started in winter, so before I knew it it was Winterfest! Amy got to flirting with Father Winter and Blue did not approve
Image
I thought it appropriate that their first kiss be a mistletoe kiss
Image
Image
Then they got down to the baby makin
Image
I've heard rumors that children of Father Winter get special interactions or something, so I've been wanting to try it out to see for myself!
A few days later a very pregnant Amy went to the Flea Market
Image
and flirted with the alien from earlier
Image
That's all for now! I can't wait to see what happens with Father Winter's baby! She'll have one pregnancy by Father Winter, one by an alien, and what about the third? Let me know what you think!

Chapter 2:

Spoiler:
What's that?
Image
More flamingos? Well that must mean....
Image
That's right! Braydon Frost Azure was born! His infant days pass by quickly...
Image
Amy often jogs with Blue
Image
And she was thrilled to participate in the spicy food eating contest at the Spice Festival, even though she didn't win.
Image
And before I knew it Braydon was a toddler! I love his bright blue eyes, those must have come from Amy.
Meanwhile, Amy went to GeekCon again to get in some more food stall food. She met up with Dawson the blue alien and they had some fun in the observatory
Image
Once they were finished, Clement Frost appeared and accused Amy of cheating even though they were never official. Hmph.
Image
There goes that relationship bar, lol.
Amy stuck around San Myshuno and entered the Karaoke Contest
Image
She sung her heart out but got beaten by Anaya Jang
Image
I want to accuse her of being smug, but she's just so cool!
Amy came home and engaged in some Mom duties
Image
And then Braydon became a child!
Image
Probably going to get Amy pregnant by Dawson soon. I realized that I boxed myself in to requiring that the heir by female and have the blue skin tone, so I got Amy the fertile trait and stocked up on strawberries. Money is still tight, but I had Amy plant some orchids she got from one of the festivals, so that should help. And I might farm Braydon's aspiration points for a money tree.
To complete the Cats & Dogs challenge, I need to have Amy open a vet clinic. My plan is to save up to buy the Brindleton Pawspital instead of building my own, but it's pretty pricey so we'll see. Until next time!

Wow, the Azures have such a large family! It can be hard to get a baby to inherit the colorful skin, especially when you’re aiming for a certain gender. Congratulations on completing so many aspirations so far!
