Oh EA..... Why didn't you think of this yourselves?
Finally, real greyhounds and terriers are within our grasp!

Today, I bring you two new sliders for dogs - one for changing the "set" of the tail, and a single-direction slider for straightening the tail.
The tail set slider does cause minor clipping issues with the legs when set all the way to the left to create a greyhound-type tail (see screenshot), and both sliders can look a tad awkward when the dog is sitting, lying down, etc. Unfortunately, there is no way to fix this, so if it bothers you, move on.
The sliders are made for both large and small dogs.

The Pets expansion is, of course, required, as is a game that has been patched to at least 1.29.

To get the full look in the screenshots, I recommend downloading PharaohHound's Tail Thickness slider (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=480370), as well as CmarNYC's Tail Length slider (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=476712).
I also recommend getting a mod to remove the custom slider limit.

YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSS. I am a major dog-lover, and I can recognize lots of breeds on sight. The thing that immediately stuck out to me with EA's dog breeds was how they looked pretty much nothing like the real-life breeds.

Yep, that's exactly why I made these!
I honestly don't know what EA was thinking when they labeled those strange aliens as "purebreds". There were some major oversights in the slider's department.
And the horses and cats were no better either!
Anyway, glad you like them!

Now I can finally have dogs with a proper sickle tail, instead of the saber. EA's ring tail just looks so bad. I've always hated dogs with curly tails, and docked tails always looked so ugly and cruel.
