|Game||The Sims Pet Stories|
Melissa Carter is a pre-made playable adult Sim from Garden Heights, one of the neighborhoods shipped with The Sims Pet Stories. She is a Dog Trainer and has a dog Bruno. In the Best in Show story, Melissa and Bruno compete in the SimCity Dog Show together against Alice Whitt and her dog Sam. She first appears in the story at Playground for Precious, where Alice arrives with her dog Sam to registrate for the dog show. When Alice comes to chat with Melissa, she refuses to offer any advice to her.
She appears at The Show Park where the dog show qualifications for the SimCity final take place. Melissa and Bruno participate after Coach Grinder and his dog Meat Grinder, followed by Alice and Sam and Diana DeBore and Precious. After everyone finished, Meat and Bruno get into a fight, which caused both of them to be disqualified from the dog show. As a result, Alice and Sam go through to the finals at Bartholomew Greens.
