Today I shot my poor wolf to death by mistake. Three creepers were descending on me and he got in the way as I was shooting at them. This was the first and only wolf I ever gave a name to, so I was attached to him. Am I the only one who does things like this?
On my main world of 8 years I have a home in a mountain with a lava fall out the front., (Originally there but widened in the early years), anyway I've had it fenced off in various ways - brick walls, fencing, low walls with railings etc to stop friendly mobs going in. My first ever wolf was loose and free roaming and - without even thinking about it, I put my crafting table down by the two high grass mound to the left of the low wall. Before I knew it wolfie (He didn't have a real name but I just referred to him as such), jumped onto the crafting table onto the two high land and went straight into the lava. I was gutted.
The sign plaque is still there to this day in memoriam, so you're not alone!
