I hope it's early August / summertime. I have some friends who would love to go but never can becaues of the fall scheduling, either because of their kid's school or because work (teachers).
Not holding my breath, but it would be cool if they could finally come.
Hasn't always been a pet though. We've had four pets - Murky (05), Grunty (09), Deathy (10) and the Murkablo (11). But 2007 was the costume, and 2008 was the Big Blizzard Bear mount.
