I have a dog now. He's sitting in The Odyssey with his little hat on. Doesn't do much.

I'm pretty sure I didn't buy one of those, and there's no dog in my souvenir list. Where the heck did I get that? What's the trigger?

  • You can get the dog in Tostarena Town to follow you around after he finds the Moon for you. Is it the same dog?

  • So it wasn't just me ignoring the story then. Some other people also noticed the dog but don't remember why it's there. I feel less crazy now.

    I believe it comes after you see it/play with it in the mushroom kingdom. Commented Nov 5, 2017 at 21:24

From the Super Mario Wiki: "the Dog appears inside the Odyssey after finishing the game at least once..."
