Description
The unique dog follower, Meeko, is now a bit more unique, as well as fearsome, now following you as a white wolf, under the name "Roxy"!

Rather than adding a new follower, this replaces Meeko, a dog found in the Morthal Swamps. You can still find and recruit him (now a "her") as normal, or continue a game where you've already done so, but now (s)he's around 50 levels* cooler.

*levels refers to levels on a scale of coolness, not to ingame character levels

This is a simple mod, purely aesthetic, made mainly for my own pleasure (Roxy is, of course based off my dog), but I decided to upload it to steam to familiarize myself with the upload process, and just in case anyone else likes the idea of a unique wolf-follower

Fun new update: You can now control whether Roxy acts like a dog (sitting, panting, and barking at everything while following you) or a wolf (standing menacingly) by talking to her and saying "Could you act more tame?" or "...more wild?". Once again, this change is purely aesthetic and will only change Roxy's animation a bit, not her performance or her stats

--------------------
Bugs
--------------------
-slight animation glitch when loading a save with Meeko following you; fixed by fast travelling or waiting

--------------------
Compatibility
--------------------
This will not be compatible with any mods that alter Meeko's data,

I have made a new, more compatible version (be sure to unsubscribe from this version first):

This one is in Meeko's shack? The same shack? Just wanted to make sure, I treid another Meeko to German Shepard mod that just did not work. I would so love a wold/dog/whatever than can change behavior..dogs in Skyrim bark too much

oh i just realised theres more than one stray dog and they travle, i'm not ordering anything but i think it would be better if u made another wolf dog follower and not change any vanilla dogs? i dont know its up to u to even make the mod im requesting.

@sixtiesgirl: Thank you for uploading the screenshot. The eye-bulging bug's been here the entire time, but I've never noticed it. Skyrim's wolf's "trotting" animation is broken, and has the eyes set too far forward; it's not a problem in my mod. I've fixed it with a workaround (editing the model so that eyes can't move; this also means the eyes can't look around, but I'm not sure that the wolves did that anyways, so it shouldn't be noticeable), but I hope I can fix the animation itself if/when I know how.

Anyhoo, that will be uploaded soon, and I can definitely make another wolf follower mod for Stray Dog.

could u make one for Stray Dog? make him a wolf? u already made a white wolf, and a ice wolf, why not another? i would greatly appreciat it.

its hard to explain, all wolves eyes bug, just setrace any of ur followers and walk backward and you'll realise their eyes bulg.

@Mega-Lobster: I haven't tested, but I don't see any reason why it shoudn't work. If it doesn't, try the "Compatibility Edition"

@sixtiesgirl: What do you mean by eyes bulging? can you take a screenshot?

@Heyos1: Are you sure that it's this mod that's causing the problem? Disable it to check if that fixes it, and look at any other mods that may alter Meeko
