The unborn Jones puppies are the unborn litter of Lucy Jones and Sam Whitt, born at the end of Alice's Story in The Sims Pet Stories. Since pets can't get married, the puppies will have their mother's surname but will not live with her, since she gives birth on Alice's home lot and so the puppies become part of the Whitt household. (This is only possible in story mode, and not achievable in most versions of The Sims 2, where birth always occurs on the mother's home lot.) However, if the player chooses to develop Alice and Thomas's relationship and have them move in together in free play, the puppies will be able to live with both of their parents. The number of puppies seems to be random; like other litters of puppies and kittens in games using The Sims 2: Pets engine, there can be as few as two or as many as four.
