9/11 A Day to remember


Congratulations to our September's Player Spotlight Winner!


Arzu (#1111) is our terrific terrier ambassador!

...Community Chatter...

These little shout-outs come from various players, not just staff!
"I LOVE Arzu! She is the sweetest, the best team partner in the game, and just top notch!"
"Staffy queeeeen! Wonderful club president and committed breeder of HP's staffys!"

...Interview Questions...

Anyone who wins P.o.t.M. can answer as many or all of the questions as they feel comfortable answering!

~...HP Questions...~
1. How did you first learn about us?
Searching for Horseland shortly after it shut down.

2. What is your favorite thing about HP?
That it is my daily escape from reality (:

3. How long have you been playing for?
I’ve played on and off for the last 10 years, but most consistently for the last 4 years (:

4. How did you come up with your player name?
On Horseland I was either arzu or azru… I couldn’t remember which but wanted to stick with the same name (:

5. What is your favorite breed of horse or dog to train?
American Staffordshire Terriers for sure (:

6. What caused you to pick the breed(s) you train and breed?
My heart dog, Buster, is an AmStaff, and overall I just really love the breed. They are the biggest lovable goofballs you will ever meet (:

7. How do you come up with names for your animals?
I generally try to pick a theme and stick with it loosely. Sometimes I try to stick with the same first letter for pairs, but it generally depends on how busy I am at the time xD

8. What are your current goals on HP?
To continue upping the points and generation of my AmStaff lines, and to get players more active in the Terrier Club and my AmStaff Embassy (:

9. Do you have a favorite animal? (It can be your own or another player’s you admire!)
While I love my AmStaffs, currently my favorite animal is Sat and I’s 2023 Mascot Winner, Granger! However in theory my favorite future animal is my next years mascot entry that will be dedicated to my heart dog Buster :D

10. Who’s your go-to graphic artist or coder? Are there any services you offer?
Uta is by far my favorite graphic artist and I’m hoping to get a layout from her soon (: but other than that Sat has also made me some really amazing graphics/layouts. I on the other hand have absolutely zero artistic talent, so I typically get my HPD selling upgrades xD

11. What is your favorite Site-Wide yearly event?
Mascot Contest or Easter egg hunt (:

12. What other contests or activities do you usually participate in?
Anything that has puzzles! I looove puzzles :D

13. Do you have any training or breeding tips to share?
Try to get as much done as possible on Sundays, and do not overload yourself with animals!

14. Which seasonal layout art is your favorite?

15. If you could change one thing about HP, what would it be and why?
Requesting private shows - because right now I have 8 dogs in full private shows and 99% of my time is requesting private shows. Which is my own fault xD but would love an easier way, but also know that its part of the challenge of the game!

16. What do you spend most of your time on HP doing?
HA! Definitely requesting/entering private shows.

17. What is your favorite Club?
Terrier Club - I am SO glad it was added (:

~...Real Life & Random Questions...~
1. Where are you from?
North Carolina, USA

2. Does your place of residence have any sort of quirky history fact or legend/tradition, and if so, what is it?
We are known for making moonshine!

3. What do you do for work?
Right now I am both vet tech and practice manager at an animal hospital

4. Do you own any horses or dogs?
2 horses: Dee (30 yr old Appy mare) and Houston (7 yr old APHA gelding) and 2 dogs: Buster (9 yr old AmStaff) and Oliver (2.5 yr old Boston x Chi)

5. Do you have any other types of pets at home?

6. What are your favorite breeds of horse and dog?
Horse - Paints (APHA)

South Florida - specifically Delray Beach or Jupiter Beach, or Hollywood Beach if I’m feeling touristy (:

11. Do you have any special talents? If so, what are they?
Not really xD my coworkers would probably say my talent is supreme multitasking

12. If you could own any breed of horse, what would it be and why?
Norwegian Fjord - I’ve always loved the breed, in a perfect world I would probably cross it with a TB to get a more warmblood type of hunter horse with the Fjord look *drools*

13. If you could own any breed of dog, what would it be and why?
An AmStaff and a Boston Terrier bc I love my doggies and wouldn’t trade them for the world. Would love to have an AKC registered of each in the future though.

14. If you could meet any celebrity, who would it be and why?
Michael Weatherly bc two of my favorite shows are Bull and NCIS

15. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
Ireland -bc I have been before and it was absolutely stunning and have wanted to go back since
Or Australia - bc I have just always wanted to go

16. What would be your dream job?
I’m living it! Practice Manager of an animal hospital while still getting to spend some days as a vet tech in surgery. Best of both worlds.

17. What would be your dream meal of choice?
A bowl of cereal xD

18. What is the top thing on your Bucket List?
To travel the world

Congrats arzu! I do sometimes wonder if I would've enjoyed being a vet tech over a nurse haha.

Def watch Suits!
I'm at the tail end of Season 7 right now and it's still engaging and a good watch!
At the very beginning it took me a couple of episodes to get into the show but it's for sure worth sticking with!
