It’s a Dog’s Life is a fantasy game, but not in the traditional sense of elves, dwarves, magic and swordplay. The prairie dogs in this game take the place of the heroes that you might be used to playing. Although It’s a Dog’s Life is fantasy it does have its basis in reality and a lot of what is written about prairie dogs in these rules is taken from fact. There are more real-life facts about prairie dogs in the last chapter of this book, just in case you are interested. Some of these facts might even find their way into your own games and they will certainly help you understand more about these interesting critters. However, the game is not about playing real prairie dogs but fantasy ones. So don’t let real-life natural history rule your games - after all this is a game, so just go and have some fun with it!
