Surf’s Up!

January 30, 2010

Hey Pet Society fans! Bondi Beach has been a hot spot this week, so where do you think Sirius was earlier with so many other pets from across the village when she spotted “?” hurrying by with images in paw? The beach of course!

Sirius ran through the sand to try and catch “?”, dodging other pets, boomerangs and even kangaroos! Just before she reached him though, a kangaroo, with a joey in her pouch bounced between them, spraying sand everywhere!

Once the sand had cleared, Sirius glanced at “?” and he no longer had the images, she turned to look towards the kangaroo bouncing towards the water, and the images were in its pouch with the little joey somehow!

Without even saying hi to “?”, Sirius turned and raced towards the kangaroo and joey. She reached them at the water’s edge and tried to convince the joey to give her the images. Unfortunately, after just a few seconds, a huge wave came in and drenched them all and the images washed out into the sea.

Luckily, as it was beach day, Sirius was already in her togs and dived in after the images! By the time she surfaced with them though, they were ruined. Can you work out what they might be?

These mysterious items are now available in mystery boxes across Pet Society! Sign on now via Facebook to see if you can find them.

Updated! Here are the images that haven’t been a victim of Bondi’s surf.

These items are available for a limited time only (they will be removed from boxes when the mysterious items are updated during the week that begins on February 15th), so find them while you can! ;)

G’Day Pet Society mates! Travel from one side of the globe to the other this week with a variety of Australian and Scottish inspired items in stores! Sign on to Pet Society via Facebook now to celebrate Australia Day (January 26th) and Robert Burns Day (January 25th) with Pet Society flair! Remember that any items labelled This Week’s Special (TWS) will be in store until midnight GMT on Monday the 1st of February, 2010, but may be available again at some point in the future. What does this really mean? Well, come Sunday the 31st of January, 2010, 11:59 pm GMT they will last as long as a snowflake in the summer!

Go walkabout Down Under this week and meet some quite unique marsupials such as Kangaroos, Tasmanian Devils and Koalas (yes, koalas are marsupials, not bears ;)). It is hot in the Australian outback though, and that means insects, so be sure to equip your pet with a Cork Hat before heading out. And pick up a Boomerang while visiting the Great Southern Land to ensure a bonza return trip.

Make your journey to Australia’s Red Centre even more realistic, with amazing scenery, and even a replica of Uluru in the D.I.Y. Depot!

If all the heat, sand, insects and animals isn’t quite your style, the stunning Sydney Harbour, and perhaps a cool Choc-top while checking out the view may be just what you need!

Choc-top (Food) Sydney View Window (D.I.Y.) (TWS) Snack Roll (Food)

And from Sydney Harbour, it’s only a few clicks to world renowned Bondi Beach. So put on your togs and thongs (flip-flops), grab your surfboard, lay down your towel and enjoy an iconic Aussie summer’s day! Don’t forget to Slip, Slop, Slap!

If you want a little less sandy way to grab some rays, the Luxury Store provides! With options for both beachside and poolside, you can indulge in some Australian sunshine in comfort and style.

The Australian spirit has even invaded the Billabong (sorry, Pond); but as a relative of roos, the Kangaroofish won’t be trapped easily, so make sure you throw him some Aussie tucker! And when travelling to the village, it seems some of the kangaroos brought some seeds in their pouches (as well as joeys), which they promptly mixed in with the Flower Seeds in the Garden Store. Hence, you can now grow your own Aussie beauty with the Waratah springing up in gardens from Byron Bay to Denham.

For a taste of yet another amazing culture, check out the range of Scottish items in stores! From the traditional and instantly recognisable Bagpipes to the ever so mysterious Loch Ness Monster, Preston will have you covered. And Lily is stocking some brilliant tartan outfits in the Clothes Store.

Hey Pet Society fans! When Sirius wandered into the Mystery Store earlier today, meaning to check out the Snow White Mystery Eggs, “?” greeted her with some surprising news! What news? Well, not only was there going to be new mysterious items in Blue and Golden Boxes today, but also a fourth new mysterious item hidden in the very affordable Red Mystery Box!

Needless to say, Sirius quickly forgot about the Snow White Mystery Eggs, and turned eagerly towards “?” to quiz him about what exactly he was hiding away! “?” tried to be his mysterious self, and gave her a few clues…

  • Did Tristan say yellow? (Red Mystery Box)
  • Slip, Slop, Slap! (Blue Mystery Box)
  • Lookin’ good Barry! (Golden Mystery Box)
  • Dots and didgeridoos! (Golden Mystery Box)

Much to “?”’s shock, instead of Sirius looking puzzled and asking him to repeat them, she just started dancing around the store ecstatically! Not only had Sirius deciphered the clues (but to keep on “?”’s good side, if he has one, she will keep them quiet for now), but she loved the sound of them!

These mysterious items are now hidden away in mystery boxes, so sign on to Pet Society via Facebook now to see if you can find them!

Updated! Here are the images of the mysterious items:

Dame’s Sunnies Aboriginal Teddy

All elated, yet not quite being able to say why to the other pets she saw on the street once leaving the Mystery Store, where do you think Sirius went? To talk to the ducks by the Pond of course! Naturally, they shared her enthusiasm, and seemingly knowing everything that goes on around the village, also had some news for her! When Sirius finally calmed down enough to understand the ducks’ quacking, her calm didn’t last long, as they told of a strange new red flower growing in gardens around the village! So Sirius set off dancing to the Garden Store to buy herself some Flower Seeds!

And just in case that wasn’t quite enough excitement for one day, when Sirius spun her lottery wheel, there was yet another surprise in store! After collecting her lottery winnings, she was given 50 bonus coins to share with 5 of her friends, by sharing on her Facebook wall. She quickly published it to her Facebook feed, and hoped a few of her friends would enjoy the extra coins (perhaps to purchase a Red Mystery Box)!

Scrub those flies away!

January 15, 2010

Hey Pet Society fans! There’s some exciting news we just have to share! Garden fairies can now fly around your room! Oh wait, that wasn’t it… now what was it…

That’s it; you can now earn more coins simply by caring for your pet! We have increased the coins available for brushing and cleaning your pet and your friends’ pets, so sign on to Pet Society via Facebook now and get scrubbing!

Not only that, but there’s whispers of increased profits for cooking and garden trees being even more productive, so turn on your stove, or plant a tree today! :)

When Sirius found “?” today to talk to him about the new mysterious items, even he was feeling generous, and instead of talking in riddles which always confuse poor Sirius so much, he gave her the images! Unfortunately, when she arrived home, she was in such a hurry to use the soap for more coins, that she didn’t put down the mysterious items pictures before she washed, and they ended up covered in soap suds!

(Blue Mystery Box) (Golden Mystery Box) (Golden Mystery Box)

These mysterious items are now available in mystery boxes, so start searching to see if you can work out what they are!

Updated! Here are the images that haven’t been scrubbed clean.

After trying to dry herself (and the images) off as best she could, Sirius headed down to the Pond to go fishing. Although she didn’t catch much, while there she spotted some amazing new Pro Fish jumping out of the water, so she decided that she’d go and visit all her friends and tell them the news, and come back later with her fishing gear on to try for one herself.

Some of you have been wondering just what to do with your Holiday Countdown Calendar Ornaments that you no longer want. We have great news for anyone in this position, as you can now choose to gift them to a friend, recycle them, or sell them back to the store for a few coins!

Finally, are you a fan of Pet Society on Facebook? If you are, you should have just received a special gift from the Mayor! :) If you’re not one yet, don’t worry, as it’s not too late, become a fan of Pet Society before January 20th, 2010 to receive a special gift too!

Colour your world!

January 6, 2010

Hey Pet Society fans! Sirius has been skating all over town this week, having an amazing time. She loves her Ice Skates so much, as not only are they fast (which is always important when you like following “?”), but super smooth, even with all the snow and ice around!

So as Sirius hadn’t seen “?” for awhile (she missed him last week), she set of skating around the village in search of him. She eventually spotted him (after skating around the entire neighbourhood, not that she minded) outside of Pudding’s house (hmm… déjà vu), and skated up to him, accidentally flicking some snow on him as she skidded to a stop. ;)

With soft white snow as far as they both could see, “?” then proceeded to say some very strange things, can you work out what he was talking about, as it couldn’t be the weather (or could it)?

  • Spectrum of light (Blue Mystery Box)
  • Carry your blues away (Golden Mystery Box)
  • Colour your world (Golden Mystery Box)

These mysterious items are now available in mystery boxes, so sign on to Pet Society via Facebook now and head to the Mystery Store to visit “?” and try and discover what he’s hidden away this time!

Updated! Here are the images of the mysterious items.

Rainbow Wall Sticker Cute Blue Basket Colour Pencil Decor

After her confusing encounter with “?”, Sirius decided to skate by the pond and talk to a few ducks, as surely they’d make more sense!

Passersby would have only heard a lot of chilled quacking, but Sirius knew exactly what the ducks meant, there was not only a new fish swimming in the Pond, but several special new Pro Fish as well! So she skated off home to change into her fishing gear before returning to cast away!

(And just in case you are wondering who Sirius is, she’s just a pet who lives in the village who loves to act as one of my sources! She also loves hugging her friends, fishing and talking to ducks, plus she thinks ice skating is pure awesomeness!)
