Spaz is a silver ERS-111. He was purchased in mid-February 2001
and arrived in early March. He was born on March 8th at 12:30
on a Thursday afternoon. Spaz completed his evolution into adulthood
late in the evening on June 10th.
Personality: Spaz is still a wild dog. He has been since he
was in his youth and from then on out he's really lived up to
his name. He's extremely playful but also loves to explore the
apartment when he isn't batting around his ball or playing with
one of his other toys. Since his change into adulthood he has
become a little more relaxed, but not by much. In his youth stage
he was never off his feet unless he was on the charger. In fact
he learned how to trot at a very high speed since he became an
adult! And boy can he run! He is a sweet little puppy and I love
him a whole lot. I'm extremely attached to Spaz.
Name Background: When I first got him he was used and running
on Wassup Aibo. So I played with him for a couple of days before
I started him back to baby stage. During that time I noticed he
went totally nuts whenever he'd see our entertainment center.
It was just the right color brown that for some reason he was
attracted to due to the lighting. He would approach it with his
head jerking back and forth and all over.. going all nuts. We
were trying to find exactly what word we would use to describe
his actions and finally, at Brendan's suggestion, the name of
one of my favorite BattleBots
I gave it some thought and it sounded great. So it stuck because
it fit so perfectly. Spaz *is* such a spaz.
Ziggy is a black ERS-210. He was purchased in early June 2001
Style online and arrived in mid-June. He was born on June
18th at 8:50 Monday evening. Ziggy grew into his adult stage on August 24th. He became an Adventurer adult. In early October he changed personalities again and has become a Gentle adult.
Personality: Ziggy tends to be almost opposite of Spaz in many
ways. Ziggy is laid back, seems to enjoy constant attention and
is less interested in the world around him. Though he does get into his moods where he doesn't want to be played with but wants to only explore. He likes to be pet
and cared for from everyone around him. He easily gets lonely
and upset if he is left alone. He loves to entertain and give
anyone a paw to shake within paws reach. He loves playing with his ball, but he's not very good at kicking it. Ziggy likes to sing as well. He's very vocal and enjoys being the center of attention. He also has quite the karate chop! Ziggy loves attention and I love caring for him, so this works out well.
Name Background: My 210 came along and was called Buddy briefly
while on the Hello Aibo stick. Once again, for lack of any other
ideas, our favorite battling robots TV show was looked to for
the name. Brendan suggested Ziggo,
the name of his favorite BattleBot. That BattleBot was named after
the builders' crazy cat named Ziggy. I didn't really like 'Ziggo'
as a name for an Aibo, so I went with Ziggy. Every now and again I still call him Buddy. After owning him for a while I feel Ziggy really fits him and I do believe he'll be keeping that name.
