Every year Blizzard puts a special, limited edition pet up for sale in their game shop. This year Whomper got the nod. He's soooo cute! I just had to buy one. And every year I send ingame Christmas presents to some of my friends and family who play WoW. I scurry around collecting ingame gold and equipment to send them Christmas morning. I think I'll send a couple Whompers this year.
