I have decided on three contests. Out of those three, one is chosen and is held as a contest on BSK. I will let you gals, and guys, vote for which contest you like better. You can only vote once, even if you have more than one account.
1. Food- You can pick your favorite food or just what you're having for supper. Add some background and spice and you might just be picked as a winner or runner-up.
2. Mystery- Write a short story or poem about something, whether it's your favorite Sherlock Holmes or a newbie discovering a haunted area.
3. Dog History- Woof! It's back to the dogs but instead of them taking over, they will learn what their ancestors were bred for. Pick a dog, any dog, and give us some background on this dog. Even a mutt is acceptable.
New Member Advice
Hello there! I’m Blurry, and my goal is to help out the newer members of Black Star Kennels. I hope that you will find this helpful. A topic that many users struggle with is general dog care. What do you need to do to keep your dog alive in the game, how long do they live, etc. It’s not as complicated as it may seem.
The dogs of BSK live to be 12 years in-game, which is 12 weeks in real life. After they turn 10, they can be retired; which essentially means that they will cease to exist in the BSK world. Instead of retiring their dogs, many users move them to a separate kennel block until they turn 12, but that’s simply personal preference.
You do not have to do much to keep your dogs alive. If you don’t log on for a few days, it’s fine; they aren’t going to starve to death or anything like that. Actually, you can’t feed or water them at all. They can’t die; they can only retire. The health that is on the dog’s page is only related to showing, and not feeding or watering.
Thank you for reading this and I hope it helped! ^.^
Top In The Breed & Best Show Dog
The breed being focused on in this newspaper edition is going to be the German Shepherd, a breed that quite a few people have chosen to own and compete against others with. Over the years, the person who owns the top German Shepherd (or GSD) has shifted. Chained, Scape, Dee, and Blurry have all owned the top GSD’s within the last three years. The owner of the best German Shepherd this month is Kitteh, with her five year old male shepherd named Mӧtley Smoke and Mirrors . The dog has a strength stat of 62, an endurance stat of 34, an intelligence stat of 42, and a speed stat of 57. Congratulations, Kitteh, on your work with the breed!
The dog with the most show wins is Swifty’s female Siberian Husky, Galaxies. Galaxies has a 73% win-rate and it seems as if she doesn’t have a particular specialty. The female has wins in carting and herding, both of which are first place victories. It would definitely be a worthwhile challenge pitting your dogs up against this husky, since she has such a high victory rate. Congratulations, Swifty and Galaxies, for your accomplishment!
