I just downloaded the Dogmeat Armor off of the moddb. According to what it does, it marks Dogmeat as essential, meaning he cannot be killed as long as he is a hired follower. Due to the fact that he suddenly died so easily when I first played with the Unofficial Fallout 3 patch, this appeals to me. Now I no longer need to reload whenever he dies. I have also downloaded something called Dogmeat Leather Armor which is supposed to give him armor that you can put on him, get a whistle to summon him, set him to a non-aggressive sneak mode, and gives him an inventory to store your excess loot. I was wondering if these perks are compatible with each other. Does anybody else have experience with these mods?
