How can I put 2 different ( Dog )  animations on the same line, where one is running in place [ stationary ]  and the other running across the page in back of the first?

Hi,

I don't know what system you are doing the animations for but in general you can do the following:

1 draw the background (grass, trees, houses)
2 draw the dog that is in the back
3 draw the dog that is in the front

There are other ways of doing this and what method to choose depends on many things.

Hope this helps.

I'm using html and I already have the animations....I want to program them for viewing on one line....on AOL web page. I admit my first question wasn't clear enough.

The only way is to combine them into ONE animation.  You cannot have two overlapping images in HTML.

I don't do animated GIFs on the PC, but I'm sure there are programs that you can download (freeware/shareware/public domain) for that.  Try Download.com (http://www.download.com).  However, on the Mac, I prefer using GIFBuilder, even though it's a preview-release version.

I hope this helps.
