Nintendogs : Chihuahua is only $14.99 at Amazon.  I figure they must think no one will want to buy the little yappy dogs.  Too bad it's not for the other breeds.  frown

I thought you could unlock all the breeds on any version.  It's just the starting selection that marks the difference between versions.

You can, if someone with another breed is in range of you and comes to play.  See, I live in a town of 3,000 people.  I don't see that happening. biggrin

To my knowledge, that is correct. You start off with what's on the box, and then you can earn the ability to tame all the other breeds once you've gotten to some point in the game.

From what I've read at GameFAQs, all dogs are available in all versions, without having to wirelessly connect to anyone else.  There are a few items that are exclusive to each version, and those can only be gotten by connecting to someone who has another version and having them gift the item to you.

I just checked the price again and it's jumped up to $28.95, so I guess it was only for a short period of time.  Ahhh...who wanted the Chihuahua anyways?

I got in on the deal at around midnight last night. Hopefully they won't change the price on those of us that did order it.

Dear Customer Service Department of Amazon.com.

Perhaps if you sold less 3-year-old models of cordless powertools, small kitchen appliances, self-assembly furniture kits, and luggage, you could cut down on your costs for warehouse space and wares purchasing, and could then dedicate those funds and manhours to the accurate display pricing of your print media, digital media, consumer electronics, software, and collectibles.

In accordance with my consumer policies and my intolerance for excuses for circumstances well within your own control, I cannot offer you my business again until you manage to piss up a six foot rope.  This policy isn't  posted anywhere, but it should be fun to watch you attempt the feat if you ever feel more motivated to please your customers in the future.

Sincerely,

One of the schmucks out there that really has no means of holding you accountable for your sloppy business practices.
