    Morning everyone. I was wondering if anyone had the time, if they'd be willing to create a mod of my dog, Cinnamon. She got cancer and we had to put her to sleep yesterday...it'd be comforting to me if I at least got to play with her still in SDV. She's a very pretty golden retriever mix, and I think people would like the look of her sprite regardless of whether or not she's based on my dog. Some media for reference:

    I'd be honored if anyone were interested in doing this, as a sort of memorial for her. Thank you.

        I could possibly do this as I'm pretty fluent with SMAPI but I'd need some sprites.

          And why would you need SMAPI for a xnb mod? :S

              Omg Im so sorry for your lost honey.
              I've been here before with my bb Cheyenne
              in 2004 ;w;

              Losing an animal is just the worst. I loved Cheyenne
              so much even to this day.

              I would love to make the sprite for you at least!
              I'm a pixel artist, so I can at least make the sprite, but i dont know how to put it into the xnb file..

                You could make the sprite and I can make the xnb file :) I just need the png when you are done.

                        Until someone does it better -- copy this into your Stardew Valley/Content/Animals folder. The front view is the one that I could get the most similar. Back up the original dog.xnb file in the folder somewhere else if you want to be able to easily revert.

                          This is very sweet. I can definitely see the resemblance. Watching her sleeping peacefully is so nice. Thank you.

                          Edit: the tail wagging animation is rather hilarious. Idk if this was on purpose, but her ears jump up and down in time with her tail moving haha.

                                You're welcome! I tried to get it as best I could, but I'm not a pixel artist. Glad it looks okay :D

                                As for the wagging... that's a byproduct of me not testing it for long enough haha. Should be fixed by moving the ears down a pixel on the wag sprite.

                                  Tbqh, I do wish it could be a tad darker. She's more of a rich Hershey's brown. But the resemblance is still there, well enough. :) In the very least, I will happily use this one while others work on their versions. I can swap them all out haha.

                                        Looks pretty excellent.

                                        Again, the comparison.

                                        It's unbelievable. I'm so astonished.
