The Animal Crossing Christmas 2020 event, known in the franchise universe as “Toy Day,” features puppies, and they are adorable

Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the newest game in the series for the Nintendo Switch, has just ended Toy Day when Jingle the Reindeer came to gamers’ islands offering gifts and recipes to play with, giving the gifts to theirs Animal villagers distributed Much like the Thanksgiving event worked with Chef Franklin the Turkey last month

Throughout the month of December there were special vacation-themed items sold by Timmy and Tommy Nook at the Nook’s Cranny Shop (fully updated version) Most of these were Christmas toys and gifts, including robots, dinosaurs, RC helicopters, slot car tracks, dollhouses, and books.There was also the useful, but not exciting, space heater and a menorah-like candle for Jewish players looking to get into Hanukkah

The hedgehogs Mable and Sable in the Able Sisters clothing store have designed a complete Santa outfit in addition to a reindeer suit and a variety of holiday-themed dresses and sweaters

But the best from Dog O’Day’s point of view were the Animal Crossing Christmas Pups Now that dogs are a common type of villager, it would be strange if these pups were real dogs because that would be a Pluto / Goofy situation That’s why they make sure they’re plush toys, sometimes referred to as stuffies

(Although there are hamster villagers like Hamlet and Graham, oddly enough, your player can also have a hamster kept in a cage in their house)

As explained on the Animal Crossing World website, there are eight varieties of Animal Crossing Christmas puppies available, one of which is tied to the color of your island’s airport – these are a black labrador, a spotted dalmatian, a tri-colored beagle beige puppy (possibly golden retriever?), a red puppy (Irish setter?), a lemon and white puppy (possibly cocker spaniel), a gray and white puppy (unknown breed), and a pink puppy (probably poodle)

Since my (Wesley) airport is green, the puppy resident on my island Wishbone is the gray and white mongrel, although I managed to acquire several other breeds from friends and to set up a dog park with lots of dog houses and food bowls And since different color options that you have saved will be added to your inventory catalog for future purchase, should you or your friends need a different color option later they will still be available, although Nook’s Cranny is only offering these for a limited time items until Christmas

Even better, if you put one of the puppy plushies on the floor or floor in your house and then click on it, they’ll run in place and do other cute things (and with gestures and reactions you can pet them, but it does would look a bit different as it is more of a MacGyvered action than gameplay)
