The Great and the Adorable

Amid accolades and acclaim, the newest members of the VKC appeared in Second Life today. Enrico Genosse released two VKC Great Danes and the long-awaited and much-requested VKC Polar Bear Cub.

In a short while, we will add all the details, but here are the exciting bits.

Great Dane

"Magnificent," "awesome," "I love them!" are some of the comments lavished on the VKC Great Danes when they were released. Look at that regal appearance, dignity, and strength. Enjoy the friendly, energetic personality of the new dog and admire how it develops into something unique. The VKC Great Danes are available in two coat colors — Fawn and Harlequin.

Do you want your Dane's ears cropped or natural? It's your choice. This is no one-time choice. You can change your mind as often as you like with the commands "ears up" or "ears down." 

This is the first VKC Dog, indeed the first dog in all of SL, to have individual toes. Check out the feet. You'll see individual toes, not just the suggestion of toe nails and pads, on his feet. These are no ordinary toes, but carefully crafted feet prims with four toes, with hair between them, just like a real life Great Dane.

Of course, not everybody is interested in a dog's toes. Some people think more about whether the dog's collar matches their favorite color or their outfit. If so, the VKC Great Dane is for you. The collar has 41 textures built in. Plus, you can overlay RGB colors to create an infinite palate of options. Switching among them is as easy as can be. Simply speak in chat to go directly to your favorite texture or click the collar to cycle through all the possibilities. 

Polar Bear Cub

Are you listening? Are those bells you hear? Well, yes, they are. The VKC Polar Bear Cub wears a small bell around his neck and it jingles when he walks or runs. It's not very loud, but if it keeps you awake at night, you can turn it off. As with his big brother, the VKC Polar Bear, you can easily change the color of the bow around his neck.

This little cub will run up to you, hold up his arms, and ask you to pick him up and carry him. This is a must-see! As if the cub weren't adorable enough already. 

The familiar poses that you see in the other VKC Dogs take on a whole new dimension when the cub, with his stubby little legs and short neck and body, tries to imitate them. Additionally, the cub has a couple of poses that are unique — the hug and the crane. Ask a VKC Proven Trainer to demonstrate these for you. Soon you will be thinking of all manner of tricks that can incorporate these poses. One lady we know has already made a trick for her bear to slide down snowy hills on his little belly.

Just in time for a Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, or Winter Holiday gift for yourself or your best friend.

The VKC Great Danes and the VKC Polar Bear Cub are no copy/no mod/no transfer. If you wish to give one as a gift, please visit the VKC Marketplace shop.
