    1: Where did you get the idea for a golden magic w for the signature pets? I love signatures, but it’s sad you stopped them. :,,,,,,,,,,( 2: I’ve seen pictures of webkinz accounts with long happy, health, and hunger meters, and the park of you dock that says how mush kinzcash you have is UNDER you pet. How long was this dock style used, and when was it changed?? (PS I’m misty900, on a new account. ;) )

    okay here is a question: how do you judge the design a dog contest? is it random? IS IT VOTES? do you pick like 500 randomly and take the best from that? how will you judge?

  5. nursebeti says:

    My question for next episode is: Will Webkinz last forever or is there a plan to have a Finale?
