if you have Petz fashion :catz & dogz , this is not the same! it does have a storyline, but to me it is a spin off of dogz (ds). its about a girl who lives in doggerville, she explains that her friend, April, has a dog and she was jealous, she also explains that she is 11 and in the 5th grade, and that she wish to have a dog. then her dads distant cousin comes saying he wanted to talk to her dad about getting a puppy.
when the dad comes home, he saids that you have to take care of puppy, the girl tells the dad she'll take care of it. then you get to pick your puppy. the only thing I didn't like abut this game is that the girl is not that pretty. I do not know why people say its a bad game, it isn't.
yes: I recommend this product
