Well if you really think about it, Canada is part of America, but I do see your point. Though I live in the U.S., I would like to see something like A Canadian Goose, too. GANZ could also celebrate Canadian holidays, like Canadian Thanksgiving. Thanks for bringing this up. ((rep))

I agree! (even though I am American) I think a Canadian goose would be cool. Maybe a few more tropical animals...that would be a different way to mix it up a bit

I am American, and I agree! I think it would be awesome to celebrate some Canadian holidays! America is all about diversity!

Find something else to whine about. (And tke a close look at the poor Webkinz reindeer....he's not reindeer at all. That's a moose.)

Okay.... Small semantics lesson. American, if you take the time to look in any dictionary, refers only to someone or something from the United States of America. If you want to refer to the three countries of North America and their citizens or animal species, you must say North American, not simply American. Yes, it is a continent, but, sorry, you cannot call either a Mexican or a Canadian an American and be correct. The word only represents the area of the continent otherwise called the United States. US citizens are Americans, not United Statesians. I am Canadian or North American, but never American. This is a fact in every dictionary you care to look in.

American doesn't necessarily mean the U.S. (also, Buffalos and Bisons are completely different species). And webkinz pets are diverse. Like I said earlier, it doesn't make any sense to say that the current webkinz "are not diverse enough"; think about all the webkinz they have: dragons, unicorns, dinosaurs, elephants, grey langurs, whales, a bunch of different fishs and birds from all around the world, snakes, the rhino, and all of those other jungle animals they have. Is that not enough variety for you?
Actually it does matter... Look at the Golden Retriever and American Golden Retriever... was that necessary? By putting American or any other title on it Ganz is using it as a way to make practically the same pet. We just cringe at the thought of them using these titles as a way to use the exact same template rather than being more creative like they did for the grey langur, whales, fish, birds..etc...

And, yes, buffalo and bison are completely different species... yet the American Buffalo really is a bison... and it's called a buffalo... man people must think we are crazy.

Same semantics lesson. No, Canada is not part of America. It is part of North America. The only place America refers to is the United States.

Also. The American Cocker Spaniel was a breed developed in the United States only. There is, on the other hand, no such actual animal as the American Buffalo. There is, as the rest of the world will happily remind you, a North American Buffalo or Bison. And that animal was found throughout the North American continent's northern segment, crossing the US-Canada border.

But I agree totally, I would love to see Canadian holidays celebrated on WW.

Oh, yay! Thanks for that! I somehow wanted to say this, but I had no idea how! I guess I had a brain malfunction, 'cause this is a pretty simple explanation...

True so true. Something like a maple leaf bear, canadian horse, chocolate moose, and canada goose. Yeah I think it is okay for it to be a american animal as long as it's real! Come on American cocker spaniel. A american red squirrel would ROCK!
