    Poser people have NEVER been a patient lot. Been using the app since v.4 and when Zygote was pretty much the only content creator for it. Seen so many come and go and the discourse was always the same from the user: MORE! BETTER! SOONER!

    Hey Chris!
    Are the add-on breeds and stuff including the puppies stuff also going to be distributed via Renderosity like some o the other Hive Works?

    Wow, I don't think I could every imagine a dog's coloring like that.

    Those Cape Hunting Dogs are one of my favorite animals, very interesting social structure and behaviors quite unlike any others.

    Would love to see newborn kittens. We'll have to put it on our list. Maybe Sparky could work those up.

    We have a few morphs for the Big Dog female. Just not the teats part. When the puppies are suckling, you wouldn't need to see the teats though. So...

    Any HiveWire animal will be at Rendo as well on its release.

    Yes, I most certainly could morph this animal. We'd have several African animals then, and still could do much more.

    We have modeled at least, a good morph from the Asian Elephant of an African Elephant. Would just need to finish that one out.
    We have the Lions of course.
    Zebra is modeled and maps underway by CWRW.
    Giraffe is modeled.
    Could do a Cape Buffalo from the Bull.
    Could do a Gazelle from the Deer.
    I started a Hyena morph at one point, would have to revisit that one too.
    We have a Warthog morph completed and Sparky has killer maps well under way.

    Sounds like all that is missing is the Rino and my favorite the Cheater :)

    African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus) are very unusual dogs. I'd like to mention three other unusual dogs, the dhole or Indian wild dog (Cuon alpinus), the maned wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus) and the bush dog (Speothos venaticus) both from South America.

    1. Dhole or Indian wild dog (Cuon alpinus), a dog with legs of normal length - the Indian equivalent of the African wild dog

    I'm definitely looking forward to all those African animals, plus all the others I've seen you working on. I'll consider adding more African birds when those products come closer to release.

    I saw these "African Wild dogs" on one of my social media feeds, and having a soft spot for any endangered species, I decided to suggest it. The social structure for these dogs is fascinating, all dogs in the pack vote (by sneezing). If deciding whether to hunt, and not a majority of the pack sneezes, they won't go.

    OMG- Zebras coats from CWRW ! Exciting! ( And your Zebra morph too)

    And the African/cape hunting dogs are also unusual in that they regularly bring back and regurgitate food for elderly or injured pack members. And that the pups are cared for by all the females , even though there is usually only 1 breeding pair, they can suckle on any of the females- such fascinating animals and sadly very few are left

    Look forward to Zebra and if ever in this lifetime.....Spanish BULL! Wolf and Hyena are up there too. Love Hyenas! The African Wild Dog is beautiful too too bad they are dying off as a breed!
    Chris you mentioned teats for female dog as you know dogs nurse either standing or lying on their sides so, are any morphs to be added to this set of teats to reflect both positions to adjust the teats for realism?
    Since not always nursing nipples would eventually need to be seem so I picked up....I KNOW WEIRD RIGHT!?....."morphing nipples"........ I can use for on any figure biped or quadriped.... if and when released. SO if there will be none for the dog here I can wing it....gotten used to doing that kinda of frankensteining anyway!
    :p

    I saw a Maned Wolf at the Zoo when I was young, so fascinating to watch with those looooong legs!
    I also saw the African Wild dog, awesome coat! (almost like someone spilt bleach on them lol)
    Beautiful animals!

    I will be getting the HiveWire Dog in a week or two, any hopes it will be on sale?
    My niece has given me the money but it will need deposited then transfered from the bank to my card.

    Congrats FL! He's a great dog! I hope for you there's a sale. Make sure you have the reward things that give you a discount.

    Here is what I've done by fiddling with Dials, the texture is made from photos of my niece's dog Wrinkles.
    I all the maps that come with him except for the eyes and coat.
    Later, when my other projects are done, I will add my own bump, spec and displacement maps.
