Let’s Talk K9 Consumables!

No Gravatar

Whoaaa! Where did the weekend go?? Is it Monday already? Well, let’s start this week with a Customer Connection about the K-9 consumables! Many breeders think we only have food and chew toys but that’s not true! Let’s have a look at all of the wonderful consumables that Amaretto offers!

Let’s started with the food and chew toys!
Breeder Food is for K-9s you wish to breed once they reach 7 days old.

Pet Food is to be used when you do not wish to breed your K-9s. If you decide to breed your K-9 after feeding it Pet Food, it will take 7 days on Breeder Food for the effects of the Pet Food to wear off.

No Gravatar

Happy Sunday Everyone 🙂

Marku here, hope you’ve all been having an awesome weekend.

Today I want to talk a bit about the Tint traits in the K-9s.

There are 8 different awesome tint traits to breed with, these are: Sunrise, Sunset, Rose, Mint, Lilac, Periwinkle, Cherry and Royal.

They all look amazing if you want to play with colors on your dogs.

You can match them with other colored traits or go for a complete funky mix n’ match.

You can read more about the tints here: CLICK HERE

Thats all from me this weekend. So get creative with your breeding and see you all next week.

Visit a Museum this weekend!

Hey everyone Snookie here hoping you are having a super Saturday! So I was thinking of something fun to do this weekend and making a trip to the Amaretto Horse, K-9, and Barnyard Bird museums came to mind.

If you have never been you are in for a treat and if you have been in the past maybe its time for another visit.  At the museums you get to see every horse, K-9, and bird Amaretto has made to date.

Community Issues – Misconceptions & Rumors

No Gravatar

Hey everyone, Friday is here \o/

The topic I want to touch on today is misconceptions & rumors about Amaretto!

You would not believe how many times I have heard about people being “scared to speak out” to Amaretto about concerns they may have in regards to their breeding because they are scared their animals will be taken away from them. I wanted you guys to know that this NEVER happens… if someone has been banned by Amaretto it is because of something much worse than just speaking about concerns they may have.

Everyone has a right to an opinion and if you are frustrated with something you can and should talk to the staff about it respectfully, there is no need to be disrespectful or abusive towards the staff and I think this is a reason why people have heard these rumours about people being banned when “speaking out”. There is a clear difference between speaking your opinion and attacking or being abusive. I myself have experienced this with the market that I run where someone has come to me about a simple problem that could be resolved quickly but instead they have chosen to be rude and abusive towards me, and that’s where the line should be drawn because at the end of the day no one should be given abuse!

Rumors on the other hand…. I’ve heard people say that Amaretto gives certain people all the good stuff and others nothing. This is completely untrue – with 4 breedables do you think that the staff have the time to sit all day and push buttons? that is a LOT of bundles/kennels/nests and now baskets a day and there is just no way that would be possible, they are all chosen by the server and if you think someone gets everything they are probably buying the new stuff or got exceptionally lucky.

I’ve also heard that Ava eats Horses on Mondays, K9’s on Wednesdays and Barnyard Birds on Fridays…… so I guess its Ponie Pals on Sundays, right? *rolls my eyes*.

A good thing to go to is the mythbusters class that the ARU holds if you have not already been, it does a good job of dispelling those myths. – http://amarettoranchuniversity.com/index.html

So with all that being said…. I want to make clear that I am not staff and my opinion is not Amarettos. I am just another breeder, just like all of you guys, but I do moderate the Amaretto groups and I would love it for you guys to speak up and talk to the Amaretto staff freely without worry.

The best way to squash any rumor is by finding out for yourself that Amaretto’s staff are just a bunch of friendly, nice and fun people!

So that’s it from me this week, have an awesome weekend and catch you all in the groups.

It’s Time To Get Shady!

Hello to all my fellow Amaretto Breeders!

I hope that everyone has had a wonderful weekend so far and is enjoying their Sunday. 🙂

Today it’s my turn to post a connection, and I would like to take a moment to talk about shades in the Barnyard Birds!

Wiki Link Here

On October 28th, 2013 Amaretto released the 2013 Collectors Edition Halloween Barnyard Birds! Any breeding of these 2013 Collectors Edition Halloween Barnyard Birds gave a chance at getting one of the hidden surprises. These surprises were the Shades Slime, Panic, and Pumpkin!

On Monday December 18, 2013 Amaretto released the 2013 Holiday Barnyard Birds! Any breeding of these 2013 Holiday Barnyard Birds gave a chance at getting one of the hidden surprises. These surprises were the Shades Fire and Frost!

On February 9, 2015 Amaretto released the Valentines Day Collectors Edition Barnyard Birds. By breeding these 2015 Valentines Day Collectors Edition together they gave a chance at getting one of the hidden surprises. These surprises were the shades Love and Sunshine!

These traits are one of my favorites in the barnyard birds because it can completely change the look of a breed, for example if you mix a red breed with the slime shade you get a super dark green colour – this is only one of many combinations you can try out.

There is lots of fun to be had with mixing these shades with different breeds to see how they look.

That’s all from me. So get out there, play with some shades and make some unique cool looking birds!

Hugs Marku.
