Puppydex

Ever since I have started looking for more information on the internet for Kitty Care, I have come to discover that at times there are differences between the promotional pictures that were brought out and the real cats, clothes and items one could eventually buy.  I thought it would perhaps be fun to look at which cats have trully been produced (for as far as I know currently) and which cats weren't given a promotional picture at all.  As I was looking around I also stumbled a lot upon Kitty Care's brother Puppy Care and just as for Kitty Care from Hornby, I thought it could be fun to also come up with a list for the Puppies from Puppy Care off Hornby.  And in accordance to a serie we all know, I shall call this list the Puppydex (instead of the Pokedex).

Based upon the found Puppies so far, the Puppydex will consist out off 6 main categories.  The bulldog face Puppies, the olive-shaped eye Puppies, the long face Puppies, the Pluto Puppies (yes, I am stealing this category name from Compiih and Suruni as I can't think of a better and more suited name for those darlings), the Soft Touch Puppies (the only serie name I can use from Hornby itself for the flocked body Puppies) and the young Puppies.

Note that the pics have been gathered over the years from e-bay and other people's sites so not all pictures belong to me.  You can find in my Links page the links that lead to the various websites off the other people who have posted over the years pictures of their Puppies from Puppy Care.

Bulldog face Puppies:

1)  I do think we have a “Bonzo” if the one below is anything to go by.  He looks just right, don’t you agree?

           

 

2)  “Rustie” hasn’t popped up so far …

 

3) Eventhough this Puppy reminds me very much of bulldog face Puppy Rustie above here, this Puppy has brown ears instead of black ears.  The eyebrows and haircolor match, but it is hard to say something about the spots as the picture sadly isn't that in detail.

  

 

4) Next Puppy is a good copy of the bulldog face Puppy number 3 but look closely.  The ears are different.  They are shorter and not flat against the head like with Puppy number 3 above ...

  

 

5)  It is possible that this little sweetie below is our dear "Spike".  With no better picture it is of course hard to be certain but the colors match as do the eyes and eyebrows.

  

 

6) Another "Spike" you would think but this darling has shorter ears and those ears aren't also flat against the head like bulldog face Puppy Spike's ears ...

  

 

7) A fun laying down one sweetie.  Sadly it doesn't match one of the laying down darlings of the promo pictures eventhough the Puppy does ressemble our dear bulldog face Puppy Spike a bit ...

   

 

8) Another Puppy that has popped up out of the woodwork without any prior promotional picture to announce its existence ...

              

 

9) No promotional picture that I have been able to find so far.  But I do like its sitting up pose …

  

 

10) Another lovely looking promotional picture-less Puppy.  Nevertheless he looks adorable ...

                       

 

11) No name and no promo picture for this sweetie sadly enough ...

 

12) And here is another cutie, a pink one this time around.  Sadly again no promotional picture spotted yet so far …

              (discolored version or is this a different version of the same Puppy?)

 

13)  "Lizzie" exists and she looks exactly as she does on her promotional image ...

                       

   (two different versions of Lizzie.  Fabrication fault or does she exist in these two forms?)    

           

 

14) Next darling has no promotional picture that I know off so far ...

     

 

15) And then there is this sweet darling I own myself and that sadly remains nameless and also without any promotional picture (but I have to be honest and admit that I am totally head over heels in love with this cutie) ...

                                  

 

16) Looking very much like bulldog face Puppy number 15 only this Puppy has a different color shade, purple hair instead of pink hair and the ears are shorter.

           

 

17) And the darlings keep on popping up.  Here is another sweetie with sadly no name or promotional picture to link it to ...

                   

 

18) The next Puppy makes me think a lot of bulldog face Puppy number 17 but his ears are not quite the same.  Whilst those of bulldog face Puppy number 17 are flat against the darling's head, this Puppy has ears that stand a bit away from its head.  I also think that bulldog face Puppy number 17 used to have pink hair even if it isn't that good visible anymore.  This Puppy here has white golden blond hair.  Spot wise however they are a match.  So perhaps two different brought out models of one and the same Puppy ...

     

 

19) And here is a dark brown cutie that is nameless and also promo-picture less ...

                   

 

20) Very similar to bulldog face Puppy number 19 above but I think the ears are shorter on this Puppy ...

 

 

Olive-shaped eye Puppies:

1)  "Candy" has been spotted and exists thus for real ...

               

 

2)  “Goldie” was brought out for real.  Here she is in her true form.

   

 

3) This darling is as good as an exact copy of olive-shaped eye Puppy Goldie, however ... notice how this Puppy has longer ears and ears that are hanging down right beside the head instead of standing a bit away form the head like Goldie's ears do.  Spot wise, color wise, eye wise ... an exact copy of Goldie however ...

          

 

4)   "Pickles" has been created I believe as the one below may look a bit more yellowish but if you go by the spots, the eyebrows and the way the Puppy glances, it is Pickles.  I know that on the promo picture Pickles looks much whiter but perhaps in the end Pickles was brought out more yellowish or has this Pickles yellowed a bit over time.  Or it is due to the color setting of the camera that snapped the picture.  Whatever may be the case, until I manage to find another more yellowish Pickles that proofs that such a Puppy also exists, this one below is dupped Pickles ...

                  

 

5)  And then there is also still "Winston" but this cutie so far only remains spotted on the promotional image ...

 

 

Long Face Puppies:

(more smooth as the Pluto Puppies that have way more wrinkles around the nose.  Unlike the Pluto Puppies they have two wrinkles around the eyes and a top black eyelid)

1) Unknown brown laying down Puppy for whom I have not yet managed to find some promotional picture …

                                      

 

2) This one looks very similar to the long face Puppy number 1 yet this one has spots on the ears and the spots on the body are also different.  Perhaps this is a different version of the same dog or a whole new darling.  Without a promotional picture to match the dog to, it is of course hard to say …

                                                                              (holdig a pink sock; toy of Puppy Care Soft Touch Puppies)    

 

3) Soft skin tone, dark brown ears with no spots ...  Another promo picture-less and nameless sweetie ...  

                        

 

4) Very similar to the Pluto Puppy number 1 but the ears are different, the eyelid is black here, the eyebrows are differently shaped and the hair has another color too.  This Puppy doesn't have the typical Pluto face like Pluto Puppy number 1 but just a long face ...

                             

 

5) One that looks a bit like Pluto Puppy "Tansy" but is laying down unlike the Pluto Puppy "Tansy" on the promotional picture.  Also this Puppy doesn't has the typical Pluto face like Pluto Puppy "Tansy" does.  It is just a Puppy with a long face …

       

 

6) Handsome fellow “Jake” is still ducking under the radar.  Too bad cause he looks very cool …

 

7)  “Rebel” looks like a real sweetie but no real version of him has turned up as of yet apart from this one that could be him if we don’t take note of the black spots on his dark brown body being situated in different places …

           

 

8)  “Rocky” so far only exists on the promotional picture …

 

9) A cute sweetie that is nameless and also promo picture-less ...

 

10) This darling looks very similar to the long face Puppy number 9 but its ears are different.  This Puppy has longer ears and ears that are also flat against the side of its head unlike the ears from long face Puppy number 9.

 

11) And another small picture but a testimony nonetheless of this Puppy's existence even as no promo picture so far has turned up yet for the cutie.

 

12)  “Vicky” has been produced and sold also for real …

                  

 

13) A darling that ressembles a lot long face Puppy "Vicky" from above.  The ears are however different.  They aren't a full dark brown but skin tone with black spots. I also think that the black spots on his body don't match those of long face Puppy "Vicky" but with no better pricture of this darling, it is hard to tell.  In his mouth he is holding a pink pacefier but I don't think this is an original Puppy Care accessories ...

       

 

14) This one is one of my own darlings that I acquired in a lot.  No promotional picture spotted however so far for the sweetie but some one else also clearly owns him ...

               

 

15) Lovely in color combo unknown Puppy with no promo picture found so far …

              

 

16) The next cutie who has no promotional poster and also no name.  Body color and pink hair wise one would think long face Puppy "Rocky" but the pose and the placement of the spots on the body don’t line up for long face Puppy Rocky’s promotional picture …

       

 

17)   "Poppy" is one of the Puppies that shows up quite a lot but with different ears so I wonder if a "Poppy" exists with these long ears, hanging straight down ...

 

18) "Poppy" but with different ears.  They aren't hanging straight down like in the promotionla picture.  For the rest though this Puppy is the spitting image of long face Puppy "Poppy"

                                         

 

19) This Puppy ressembles Pluto Puppy "Tansy" a lot.  The differences lay however in the shape of the eyebrow and the black eyelid that is present as well as the fact that this Puppy only has a long face and not the typical Pluto face like Pluto Puppy "Tansy" does.  Notice how even the spots on the body line up with those of Pluto Puppy "Tansy" though ...   

                   

 

20) Look at this cutie that also found its way into existence without having a promo picture to announce its arrival.  I think it looks super adorable and I also added the seller's picture as it is in my opnion such a cute photograph ...

                  

 

21) This last darling looks very similar to long face Puppy number 20 above here.  The Puppy however is much more yellowish and has purple hair.  With no better picture so far it is also difficult to compare the alignment of spots on the body.  The eyebrows and eye direction however already match.

 

 

Pluto Puppies:

(their face makes you think of Pluto's face.  They have several wrinkles around the nose whilst the long face Puppies don't.  Beside the eyes they have only one wrinkle and their eyes don't have a top black eyelid)

1)  A laying down Puppy – one was rehaired - but I think these two are the same Puppy.  They don’t match any of the promotional pictures that I have managed to find so far  …

     (rehaired one)       

 

2) A brown sweetie that not much is known about yet.  No promo picture and no name either ...

  

 

3) And here is a black laying down cutie.  Again no name or promo picture in sight for now ...

  

 

4) A brown darling with blue hair this time around.  I like the combo of colors on this one.  Sadly it is just a small pic I have of it ...

   

 

5) Similar to Pluto Puppy number 4 but now with a light skin tone and pink hair instead of blue hair. 

        

 

6) And we continue with the nameless and promotion picture-less Puppies with this lovely cutie ...

     (paws colored with marker)    (hair cut short)         (notice the hole in his mouth to hold his toy)                                   (markings on the bottom of the Puppy instead of in the ear)              

 

7) This sweetie ressembles very much Pluto Puppy number 6 above here but his ears are different.  Also a different color of hair.  In his mouth he is holding a roll of pink toiletpaper, one of the accessories for Puppy Care.

 

8) And another promo-picture-less darling that saw the light ...

                                

 

9) Blue hair, short ears that aren't flat against the side of the head and a more grayish skin tone, but for the rest this Puppy ressembles Pluto Puppy number 8 ...

  

 

10) A lovely dark cutie in a gorgeous color combo but nameless and promo-picture less ...

          

 

11)  The sweetie below could be our dear "Bella".  Color matches.  Spots as far as we can see match.  Eyes match.  And the ears also match;  She has all to be our dear "Bella" ...

 

12) Happy looking “Rover” has every reason to smile as he too found his way off the manufacturing track …

                                        

 

13) A brown with blond hair sweetie.  Nameless sadly enough like so many here and like so many here also promo picture less.  It doesn't make the doggie less loved though.  Notice again how it ressembles so well Pluto Puppy "Rover" above here.  The ears however again hold the difference.  This Puppy has black spots on its ears and the ears are in the same color as its skin tone.

                  

 

14) The sweetie may have been given an outfit, but a name or promotional picture lack ...

                         

 

15)  “Tansy” was most definitely released.  Another similar looking Tansy was also released (see long face Puppy number 18) but Tansy most definitely also came out exactly as the darling is shown on the promo picture. 

       

           

 

 

Soft Touch Puppies:

(they own a flocked body)

And finally pictures off flocked Puppies from Puppy Care!  These Puppies' bodies feel soft to the touch thanks to their flocked body.  For the rest they are completely similar to the Puppy Care doggies without a flocked body but with just a plastic body.

1) Laying down, blue hair, olive-shaped eyes, blue hair, blue-grayish spots and short ears a bit away from the head.  This Soft Touch Puppy is so far my favourite one!

              

 

2) Very similar to the Soft Touch Puppy number 1 above here but notice the different ears.  They are long and hang right beside the side of the Puppy's head.  The body itself too looks more brownish.

  

 

3) Pink hair, olive-shaped eyes, blue and pink spots and ears that are anew short andnot hanging right beside the Puppy's head.

     

 

4) And just like with the blue-haired laying down Soft Touch Puppy, there exists also a pink haired version with long ears that hang beside the head of the Puppy.

 

5) Sitting up orange one with purple hair.  The face ts that off a Pluto Puppy and if you notice how the ears are hanging right beside the head, then we can wonder if the model that was used for this Soft Touch Puppy is perhaps Pluto Puppy number 7.

 

6) Gray going a bit toward yellow and with blond hair.  The same sitting up position as the Soft Touch Puppy number 5 but in colors thus different as well in attributes and hair comb.  Pluto looking face.  Perhaps Pluto Puppy number 7 stood model for this darling ...

 

7) And a bulldog face Soft Touch Puppy!  Yellow of fur color with cute light brown ears and nice purple hair.  I adore this combo! 

  

 

8) To end the list a long face Puppy in Soft Touch form.  This one has already lost a bit of its flocking and if you look closely at the sweetie, then it seems that long face Puppy "Poppy" is hiding beneath the flocking.

  

 

 

Young Puppies:

(the baby Puppies.  They are smaller than the adult versions)

1) And a small cutie with olive shaped eyes.  Sadly nameless and also promotional picture less, but what we do know is that this is one of the Puppies, I mean one of the little pups, of Puppy Care.  So a baby doggie if you want.  Notice how these non-adult puppies have no spots on their body  ...

                        (look how small it is compared to a Kitty Care cat)                                         (right one discolored or a different brought out version?)

 

2) Another young Puppy with olive shaped eyes.  No spots on its body and anew a smaller size as the adult Puppies we have come to know and love from Puppy Care. 

                      

 

3) Very similar to the young Puppy number 2 above, but with purple hair instead of pink hair.  Still as adorable as ever however with its small size, spotless body and olive shaped eyes looking sideways.  Who knows?  Perhaps this young Puppy and young Puppy number 2 were a twin set?  

  

 

4) And here is a young Puppy without olive shaped eyes.  So far I've only seen it pop up in one collection but boy is it adorable too!  Notice again the spotless body, which is aside from its size, the tell tale sign that it is not an adult Puppy version.

 

5) This young Puppy kinda makes me think of the young Puppy number 4 but with no better picture of the young Puppy number 4, it is impossible to tell whether they are one and the same or not.  For now it gets its own number and spot on the list.  Notice here how you can see very clearly the opening in the mouth to hold a toy.  I wonder whether the young Puppies got different toys to drag along than the adults ...

 

 

6) The next young Puppy has its owners mystefied a bit as its body shape is different than the body shape of the other young Puppies from Hornby.  They wonder whether it is perhaps a Fakie although the young Puppy does carry the Hornby mark brand in its ear.  It is a cutie though ...

            

 

 

Category-less Puppies:

1) No idea if this Puppy belongs to the Pluto Puppies or the simple long face Puppies.  With no better picture or being able to match it to one of the Puppies on other people's pictures, it remains a mystery under which category this darlings belongs although I think it is a Pluto Puppy ...
