Minecraft Dog Names in Pop Culture
All creatures in Minecraft are referred to as "mobs", indicating that they are mobile features in the game. Each mob spawns (or begins) in a specific area and acts in predetermined ways. Wolves are neutral mobs, meaning that they will not attack unless provoked. An untamed wolf will also naturally attack any livestock you may be raising in the game. It's easy to tell if a wolf is going to attack, as their eyes turn red and their tail goes straight up, looking quite evil.
To tame a wolf, the player must seek out and give the mob an undetermined number of bones. You'll know when you've tamed your wolf into a dog as they will look friendlier and wear a collar (just like in real life!) Tamed wolves act just like loyal puppers and will follow their owner wherever they go, sit when they're told to, and fight to protect the player. Players can have as many pooches as they'd like and a trophy called "Leader of the Pack" is awarded to anyone who can tame 5 wolves during gameplay.
Adding wolf mobs was one of the early features of this game, beginning way back in 2011. Right from the get-go, they were made to be tamed by players and all updates since that time have made the miner-wolf relationship even closer. Players can breed wolves and must continue feeding them meat to keep them happy and healthy. Once a player has hurt a wild wolf, feeding it food will not cause them to stop attacking, as the player has lost the creature's trust.
It's only natural that we include man (and woman)'s best friend in our virtual lives as well as our real ones. Having a pooch nearby - even one that isn't real - gives us a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Our relationship with dogs is one that is thousands of years old and one that will likely continue on for as long as we're on this planet.
