I own and have also played Petz Horsez 2. There is a genuinely sincere reason why I have this game and it's why I am not ashamed to own it.

2 years ago this March I lost one of my dogs to a horrible disease. She used to find excitement in barking at the television, especially whenever a horse was on the screen. I bought the game specifically to make her go nuts. She would bark and jump at the TV trying to attack the virtual horses. It was a lot of fun for me and her. She knew the game on sight and would sit at the TV as soon as I'd pick up the case.

After she died I went into a serious depression - something I'm not fully over even to this day.
