Virtual pets are sooo cool

Hi everyone. I have just adopted a pet not a real one but a virtual pet from It is a German shepard. Check it out down the bottom of tis page. His name is storm and he likes to play with the frisbee. Oh and by the way if you adopt a pet you can get together with friends play with their pets. There is no limit of what you can do on Foo pets. So you can check it out for yourself and have a fun time playing with your own Foo pet.
