Just so you know, 12 dailies with no pet is not a high number. I imagine most don't get the pet for months or years, if they even manage to get it to drop at all. If you get all exasperated because it didn't drop in the first few weeks, you're only going to be winding yourself up.
I know I bought mine from AH around 2 years ago, and while I have had one drop in the meantime, that was from battling him every time possible, whenever the faire is in town, so well over 100 bags opened.
Saying that, good luck, I hope you get lucky next month. For me, I tried for Syd again this month but didn't get lucky, so I will probably buy him now.
