Happy September Sushi Rolls!

Fall is in full swing now as we say goodbye to summer. Check out what's going on in Sushi Dogs this month, and a teaser for what's to come in October. September is not an event month but that doesn't mean we don't have some fun happenings heading your way!


✦ September Prompts ✦

Sept 2 - Sept 30

Art by Staryon

We have a month of fun prompts planned for you, mostly lasting for a week! 

To start you off, we have a "Goodbye Summer" prompt that lasts all month! Users will draw your soosh (or Cookie if you do not own a soosh) celebrating the last bit of the summer season! Are they taking one final beach trip to make sandcastles, or are they having a late summer barbecue? Maybe they are putting up their pool and excitedly preparing for Autumn? There is no wrong way to celebrate the end of summer!

 [ Check out the Prompt Now! ]

Be sure to keep an eye out for announcements on the new prompts throughout the month in our Discord Server!


✦ Tonic Art ✦

Drink up, they are available now!

Art by Staryon

Long-awaited, but our tonics have now been added into the overhauled assets! These should be the last of the older art style to be removed (If you see anything else let us know!) 

Star worked hard on making sure each one was distinct (and matched the description written for them lol). We hope you like them! All tonics are available in Pommelraie's shop, with the new art to follow soon!!


✦ October Teaser ✦

Starts October 1st!

We have a lot in store for October for you! Halloween is our favorite time of the year after all! (Don't tell the other holidays though!) We hope this small taste gets you excited for what's to come (:


Treat or Treat Mystery Sale

10 Guest Artists are pairing up and bringing back our mystery Halloween sale! Members who play will pick between 5 different themes and get surprised between one of two mystery designs! Will you get tricked or maybe get a treat?


Vampsoosh NPC Design Contest

Word on the street is that Purnima has been seen wandering the outskirts of the desert that she normally calls home. No one has seen more than a vague outline of a soosh on the horizon but surely it must be her? No one else would venture that far past town. Maybe it's time she finally stops by for a visit...but what does she look like again?

Our long awaiting NPC design contest for our Vampsoosh queen, Purnima, is almost here! Users will design what they think she should look like, and one design will become official, and they will be granted her blessing to allow for a vampsoosh of their very own....We hope you are excited and can't wait to see what you come up with!


Vampsoosh Auctions
Throughout the month of October, we will have weekly sales (excluding one week for the mystery sale) of brand new Vampsoosh designs! These will be the perfect additions to your family for the upcoming spooky season.


✦ Upcoming Shops ✦

Meet Belle & Rowan!

Art & Designs by Staryon

Word on the street is that two new sooshes just showed up to Culario and are planning on opening up some shops! They heard that apparently there's a shortage of haute potions, so they will do their part to help alleviate it. But they don't plan on doing it in the way that you expect! They will make sure you get your eat fill and look fashionable while doing it! They're so excited to meet you and hope to open their doors soon!


And that's all for this month! We hope you are as excited as we are! 
As always, feel free to leave a comment or send us a message if you have any questions!

August Newsletter

Posted 1 August 2021, 01:26:19 EDT :: Last edited 1 August 2021, 18:40:32 EDT by fawncore

Art by Staryon & Rannarbananar

Did you know that Sushi Dogs were originally founded on August 9th, 2013?
That makes us 8 years old this year!

We are immensely grateful for the community that we have, especially with so much change over the years! This year we want to celebrate our community with a variety of events all throughout the month of August!


New Faces

Out with the old, in with the new!

Art by lunar-ribbon

Throughout the years of Sushi Dogs, a lot has changed within the species since its original creation, but there from the early beginning was our mascot, Onigiri! While he has become a bit of a meme in the discord server and some sort of leader of chaos, he has always been a staple in the community.

As the concept of Sushi Dogs moved away from its original intention, Sushi, many years ago, we thought it would be best to introduce a new character who is more inclusive to what the species has become. So, with that now said, we introduce you to Cookie!

Art by fawncore

Cookie will be your new guide around Culario and the new face of the website. They are always willing to lend a helping hand to someone who needs some guidance and prides themselves on being friends with pretty much everyone in Culario somehow.

Cookie is unique in that they are very flexible with how they appear around Culario! They tend to adapt to different environments, cultures, and even preferences of who they are around! Their cheeks, bandana, and base color will always be the same, but feel free to get creative with how Cookie would appear for you! Are they a sugar cookie with tons of rainbow sprinkles, a little more crispy with floral patterns, or maybe just smothered in chocolate? Cookie's toppings are totally up to you, and we hope that any of you who don't have a soosh of their own yet can design them to fit your personal preference to be used in prompts and other activities!


And that's not all! Something planned for a while was to give our discord community a mascot of their own! Meet Zero, the robot Sushi Dog! Like Cookie, his appearance can change depending on his circumstances, but this time it's his own emotions! You will most often see him in "Discord" blue/purple!

Art by Staryon

While we welcome these new faces to our NPC team, we will say a small farewell to Onigiri, but not forever! He will just be traveling around the world and come back to Culario every so often,


Special Prompts

Open to All Members | Aug 01 - Aug 31

With Onigiri heading out, he leaves you with a prompt to welcome our new NPCs!
Completing this special prompt during the month will result in a special anniversary gift bag!

Check out the Prompt Now!

Also, a quick reminder that our most recent Adventure prompt is coming to a close on August 15th! Will you help Ryder solve the dust bunny problem, and perhaps gain a new virtue trait? These prompts are not common so if you want to work towards that mythical status, be sure to jump on it before it's too late!

Complete Your Adventure!


Anniversary Guest Artist Sales

Open to All Members | Aug 02 - Aug 27

We have an exciting month ahead of you if you're into our guest artist sales! Every Monday and Friday of this month there will be a new design up for sale! Here is a small sneak peek of what to expect in the coming month, are there any that have already caught your eye? 

Our artists for this event are:

Our first design goes up Monday, August 02! We hope to see you there!


FTO Raffle

Open to FTO's | Aug 01 - Aug 31

Art by Staryon

Looking to nab a soosh of your own? How about an extra special one at that?  Staryon kindly designed this to be used for an FTO (First-Time Owner) raffle event in celebration of our anniversary! If you love this design and want to try and win them, all you have to do is comment below with the following form if you are an FTO! 

Pro Tip: You can tell if you are an FTO by the green label on your profile!

  • SushiDogs Username:
    DeviantArt Username: (If you have one!)
    Discord Username: (If you have one!)
    What would you name this soosh if you won?


Free MYO Event

Open to All Members | Ends Aug 31st

And now perhaps on to the most exciting portion of our news!
We will be hosting an event that allows any member to make one all standard Sushi Dog for free!

Yes, you read that right! From now until Aug 31 @ 11:59 pm you can submit a Sushi Dog design of your very own and if everything looks correct, they will be approved and uploaded! There are a few rules for this event though:

1. Any sooshes created for this event will be LOCKED to your account! This means you can never sell, trade, surrender or gift them.
2. If you wish to no longer have them, the design must be RETIRED as a Sushi Dog.
3. All Sushi Dogs submitted must be standard, regardless of if you have items or not. If you wish to add gourmet traits or bells, you must do so at a later time by updating the design.
4.  By submitting a design via this event, you are agreeing and consenting that you understand the above rules, and will not try to circumvent our rules.

And that's all for this month! We hope you are as excited as we are! 
As always, feel free to leave a comment or send us a message if you have any questions!

There's still time to make your entries so be sure to read up below if you are interested in winning a new soosh!
Summer DTE Journal


New Adventure!

That's right we will have a new adventure prompt ready for you in mid-July! Want to start working towards upgrading a specific Sushi Dog to mythical status? Then this is for you! Showcase one of our virtues in the prompts for the corresponding mythical you wish to one day achieve. You will need to have completed magic training before being able to participate in adventures so be sure to start knocking that out before the time comes!

Start those Magic Trials!


Future Updates

This month is a bit of a slow month, as we are currently operating on an 'every other month' schedule for large events. We will be using these lull months to prep for the large things that will be coming soon, but also to work on longer-term things we want to implement! Please note that all of these are still in the works, and subject to change without notice!

Current Planned Events
  • August: 8th Anniversary Event
  • October: Vampsoosh NPC Design Contest
  • December: Secret Soosh & Advent
  • February 2022: Dragonsoosh NPC Design Contest
  • April: TBD!
Planned Future Updates
  • New Item Art by Staryon!
  • New Trait Upgrade Items
  • New Items in General
  • Achievement System
  • Soosh of the Month System
  • Seasonal Exclusive Currency, Rewards, Traits, Mystery Bags, etc!

We still have a lot to work on, but hope that this gets you excited. We are always open to suggestions if you have anything you would like to maybe become a reality in the group one day!

June Newsletter

Posted 1 June 2021, 15:42:57 EDT :: Last edited 1 June 2021, 15:42:57 EDT by fawncore
Happy June sushi rolls! Are you ready for summer already?! In what feels like a blink of the eye, it’s time for some fun in the sun! If you’ve been around for a while you probably already know what that means! But let’s dive right in to some new things happening around the group!

(Click to Enlarge)

Sooshapon Restock

The sooshapon machine has been restocked! We will now be setting the stock to be 5 carat-based slots and 10 koinpeito-based slots since they were wiped clean last month! 
Need to stock up on some koinpeito? 

Summer DTE

Yup you heard that right! It’s time for our (almost) annual Summer DTA/E! Unfortunately due to the state of the world last year we were unable to host the event. We hope you love the designs and theme as much as us!
This year though, we have decided to take on the DTE (Draw to Enter) format rather than the traditional DTA (Draw to Adopt) format of this event! What does this mean for you though? Basically, everyone who enters has a fair chance to win! We will not be judging on the quality of art, characterization of the character’s personality, epic sagas of stories, etc. Rather everyone who enters will receive one ticket into the raffle! All you have to do is draw a full body that is at least flat colored and you’re set! 
We hope the change in format encourages more people to participate in this event! The DTE starts June 4th and will run until July 2nd! We also hope to have final results and prizes out within 24 hours of the event concluding! 

Guest Artist Sales

Due to the DTE, there will be no guest artist sales this month! Stay tuned for the mod batch at the end of the month though!


Kayy has opened up limited custom slots for Sushi Dogs! These custom slots will not be FCFS but rather on a limited, interest-based basis. There are mystery, on base, off base, and mythical options available!

Check out her journal here if you are interested!

Website Updates

I have been hard at work on finding gaps in our website that need to be filled to reduce confusion for our player base. Here are a few updates that have been made in the past few weeks!
  • Addition of a Recaptcha on the registration page to reduce spam. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be working (LOL) so I’m looking into upping the security of the page further.
  • Addition of the “Help” tab in the navigation. This section is now chock full of our guides! We are still working on writing up the trading/selling rules guide, as there has been an increased amount of confusion with some of our rules, and want to make sure it’s all upfront for you.
  • Disabled the ability to “name” your soosh on the website. We have restricted this to staff only to include food names, which means that sooshes will now be searchable by theme! With this happening as well, we are slowly adding on traits to all sooshes on the site. Please be patient while we slowly transition all characters on the site!
  • Refreshed look on the About page, with new icons and buttons, and the addition of the calendar!
  • Updated fonts and some colors across the site
  • Beginning stages of updating the trait guide with new images.

Future Plans

Now that we are getting into the swing of our ownership change, things are moving at a much quicker pace around Soosh HQ! With all hands on deck, we are making sure delay times are minimized and new ideas are constantly floating around! With the groundwork Chital has laid for us in terms of lore and world-building, we are excited to expand on it in the coming future. I don’t want to reveal too much yet as I don’t want to set any expectations to release dates, but here are a few things we have been brainstorming for transparency!
  • New Shops and Items
  • New NPCs
  • Phasing in new upgrade items and reworking Haute Potions
  • Achievement System
  • Soosh of the Month System
  • 8th Anniversary Event
  • Future Events
  • World Building
  • Site Design Overhaul
  • Seasonal Exclusive Traits

And that’s all we have for now! We can’t wait to see your entries to the DTE this year! 

Have any thoughts or ideas for what we can do to improve? Let us know!

May News - Announcement!

Posted 1 May 2021, 13:42:59 EDT :: Last edited 1 May 2021, 13:43:52 EDT by Admin

May 2021 Update Log - Important Update


Hello everyone! It’s been a minute since we have been able to update you on current happenings. Some pretty big changes are afoot so buckle in!


Ownership Updates

As of today, May 1st, Sushi Dogs will be under new ownership, and Chital will be stepping down from her role as the owner. We know this may seem sudden to you all but hope you understand that it was something needed to be done! We thank her for three years of ushering in a new era for the species! A lot has changed since her takeover and we can’t wait to see what comes next from the roadmap she has created.

The new owner should be someone a lot of you are familiar with and have seen around the group! Kayy (fawncore) has been a moderator of the group for almost four years now and is ready to take on the role of becoming the new owner of the species. We welcome her as our new leader and can’t wait to see what happens! We hope you stick around or hop on to see what is to come!

In this time of transfer, please be patient with new changes and letting things get settled. A lot has changed for us and we definitely have a steep learning curve to try and make sure everything is on track, especially with the new website and it’s day to day functions!

Moderation Team Additions

With ownership updates comes new change! We are happy to welcome on a new set of staff, something we haven’t done since 2017! Though our team has changed much over the past few years, we are excited to bring in some fresh minds with our new moderators! Please welcome the following members to our team!

Star - Staryon |  Dawnan - Dawnan |  Radio - Radio  |  Dipper - PrinceDipper

Interested in joining the team? Based on how things go with our new transition, we may open more slots! Please keep an eye out for applications in the future


Guest Artist Sales

Long awaited surely, but our Guest Artists auctions and sales will be back in action! Stay tuned every other Monday starting on potentially May 3rd, for new sales on our website and DeviantArt! Interested in becoming a Guest Artist? We will be running an interest and capacity check soon to see if anyone can join the team!

In addition we will also now be hosting a themed monthly mod batch at the end of each month in conjunction with the regular GA sales!



Charity Sales

Many years ago we ran a very successful sale to donate to the tragic Orlando nightclub shooting that targeted LGBTQ+ individuals. In todays current global climate, it feels only right to bring this back and run specific sales where all proceeds will go to amazing organizations that help marginalized groups. It’s a lot to get done in a short amount of time, so we hope to be able to spread these in throughout the year (June is an exciting month but we simply can't do all of it at once!). Stay tuned for future updates.


Summer Event

With summer right around the corner, surely you know what that means! Our annual summer DTA will be hot on it’s trails with some amazing designs from our Guest Artist team! I already have a few themes planned and am exciting to see what our wonderful GA's can create! Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks and for how it will be implemented into the website.


Suggestion Box

With a lot of new changes right out the gate, you may be wondering if larger game mechanics, traits, or items will be changing! For the first few months we would like to plan out according to what the community may think is in their best interest! You are our #1 priority afterall! Please fill out the anonymous survey below and let us know your thoughts!

Disclaimer that all suggestions are subject to Kayy’s approval and overall group rejection. We reserve the right to disregard some suggestions based on the betterment of the overall species.

Monthly Calendar

See below with a glimpse at our tentative schedule for May! We hope to have more things gear up once our team is more settled and can’t wait to share more with you! Click for full res!


Thank you so much for reading!
Questions? Feel free to drop them in the comments below!

What upcoming events would you like to see? Are there any items you think we should consider making? Let us know it all!

January 2021 Update Log

Posted 3 February 2021, 00:33:32 EST :: Last edited 3 February 2021, 00:33:32 EST by Admin
General Site Updates

The Sooshapon Machine will now stock 10 total sooshapon tokens (5 buyable with CR, 5 buyable with KP), decreased from 20 total.

Premium potions and premium bells can now be purchased from Pommelraie's Salon for KP. Stock will be limited each month, so act fast! Currently, we have no ETA on when or if haute potions or enchanted bells will be buyable with CR.

New Features

The Enchanted Mirror is finally open for business again! While surrenders are currently closed, we've uploaded every soosh currently stuck in the mirror to be adopted for CR. Our friends on discord got to have the first look at the new and improved mirror, but there's still plenty of cute soosh up for grabs if you've got the dosh for it! When surrenders are opened, Pommelraie's Salon will be stocked with sooshapon capsules, haute potions, and enchanted bells to trade for mirror currency.

Bugs Fixed

User profiles were showing a 500 error for about 2 weeks at the end of January. This has been resolved now, thank you for your patience! It took quite a bit of tinkering to figure it out. ;w;/

Current Plans

A batch of new mods are planned to be brought on within the month! We'll be working to plan our Spring event for March if time allows. Please look forward to it!

The Enchanted Mirror will be opened for surrenders at a date to be determined, as some mod discussion is still needed to plan for the duration and frequency of opening (value calculations are done manually, so we'd like to avoid overloading mods with extra work if we can help it!).

Our first adventuring prompt will be posted within the week. Be sure to complete the magic training questline if you'd like to start earing virtue points from adventuring!

Grand Opening!

Posted 11 November 2020, 03:32:53 EST :: Last edited 11 November 2020, 03:55:06 EST by Admin
Welcome to the Grand Opening!

Sorry to have kept you all waiting so long, but our website is now open for business! We will be transfering your CR and items from the old bank manually as members come in, so please wait patiently as we get through that process! In the meantime, please feel free to explore the site and make yourself comfortable~  

As of writing this, the following site features are now available:

  • Account creation
  • DeviantArt account verification (your sushi dogs will automatically be linked to your site account once verified!)
  • Commenting on user profiles, sales posts, and news (try it out on this news post!)
  • Prompts (please check out our prompt guide for more information!)
  • Shops: The Sooshapon Machine, Pommelraie's Salon, and The Wishing Fountain

If you need any help getting started, please check out the following links for more information:

Quick Opening FAQ:

Why have I not received my characters/MYO slots?

Character/MYO slot ownership is linked to your DeviantArt alias, so any characters and MYO slots under your ownership should automatically be added to your account once you link your DA account.

If you have linked your DA account and you are still missing characters and MYO slots, please contact us for assistance!

Why have I not received my currency and items?
Currency and items are being migrated to site user accounts manually, so please wait patiently while we get to you! You may want to check the old bank to make sure that your currency and items are listed under your current DA account name--if you've changed your DA account name, it may take us longer to recognize you!
Why are my characters' traits missing or listed incorrectly?

To speed up the masterlist migration process, we intentionally transferred all masterlist entries without their traits listed. We will be gradually updating this information over time!

If you find that your characters' traits are listed incorrectly, please contact us to have them corrected.

November Events

During the remainder of the month, we are holding a scavenger hunt to help get everyone settled in! Browse various pages and see if you can find any pawprints Onigiri's left around. Each one you find will grant you 50 CR and an entry into a raffle for site items! Your first one is somewhere on this news post, but you'll have to find the rest on your own!

When you find a pawprint, please remember to open the item from your inventory in order to receive your prizes!

Regarding upcoming events, we have begun preparations for our annual advent calendar and secret soosh gift exchange, so please look forward to more information on those around the end of the month!

November Adoptable Sales

We have no plans for new sushi dogs to go up for this sale at this time! Please look forward to our annual advent calendar, with pre-claims available starting November 28.

The Sooshapon Machine & Updates to MYO Slots

During the month of November, the Sooshapon Machine will have an unlimited number of tokens up for grabs! We hope this helps make up for the lack of sales we've had throughout the year while we were getting the site ready for you all. It may take us a bit of time to get everyone's CR transferred from our old bank, so if you've been saving up for today, you don't need to worry about missing out while you wait.

Speaking of MYO slots, you may notice they function a bit differently! In the past, MYO sales have required a lot of manual work to organize: first the journal and claim thread was opened, then you had to comment to claim, then pay, then wait for a mod to add your slot to the masterlist, then wait for your bonus prize to be rolled in the discord server, then wait for your bonus prize (if you got one) to be added to your inventory...All that work is now fully automated!

After you purchase a sooshapon token from the shop, you can use it by selecting it from your inventory and clicking "Open Box." When opened, sooshapon tokens will grant you 1 sooshapon capsule and 1 random bonus prize (either a haute potion, enchanted bell, or nothing). You can then select the sooshapon capsule item from your inventory and select "Use Slot" to automatically create a MYO slot on the MYO slot masterlist under your name. We're very excited about how much easier and faster this will make MYO sales on bother buyers and mods, and we hope you are too!

Quick MYO FAQ:

Has the sale time or formatting changed otherwise?

Yes! Previously, MYO slots were sold for unlimited stock during 15-minute windows at 9AM and 9PM CST on the first of the month. From now on, the site's MYO shop will be restocked on the first of the each month at midnight UTC with a limited number of sooshapon tokens. This limited stock will be available for the entire month, or until it is sold out.

Is there a limit to how many sooshapon tokens I can buy at one time?

As of writing this, you are able to purchase as many as you'd like! This may change in the future if it becomes problematic at all, but as long as you have the currency to buy multiple tokens at a time, you will be able to.

Can I still buy slots for others?

Yes! To do this, you would simply buy the sooshapon token yourself, and trade it to your friend for them to use. Alternatively, you could buy the sooshapon token yourself, open it and use your capsule, and then trade the slot itself to your friend. It's up to you, really!

How can I buy MYO slots in USD or points?

To buy MYO slots in USD, please visit the koinpeito shop to have your USD converted to site currency!

Regarding DeviantArt points, we're no longer accepting them as payment, due to recent changes with the way that point transactions are handled on DeviantArt. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!

Help Wanted!

We're looking to bring on some new moderators for help with the site! Please click here for more information.
