Monty’s a spry 4 years old (and I mean spry, everyone thinks he’s still a puppy given his energy level, etc).  And some crazy guy with barbeque sauce all over his chin (I so incredibly wish I had taken a picture), while petting Monty for an uncomfortably long time, at the Taste of Arlington 2008, said Monty would live an additional 23 years.  Or maybe it was until he was 23.  Either way that’s WAY longer than miniature schnauzers live on par.  I’m not looking ahead to life sans Monty, but no way I’d get this (maybe, I am a sucker for such things):

digital pet urn

That’s a digital pet urn.  Available from pet-urns.com.  Product description:

With a 7” diagonal screen you can display literally hundreds of your favorite pet and/or human memories. Each digital frame includes a battery operated remote control, a large 256 megabyte internal memory, power supply cord, and USB computer cord for transferring photo’s or audio files from your personal computer to the internal memory.

This urn has two compartments which you access from the removable bottom. The 1st compartment holds the digital frame while the 2nd has 95 cubic inches of space inside, accomodating pets from 0-75 lbs.

Maybe if they added video I’d consider it.  But pics and audio only.  Who has audio recordings of their dogs?  Do they expect people to demux their video for audio and upload that?

One Response to “I don’t need it (yet)”

I might consider it if it streams fee-fee’s pics off Flickr through wifi on its own. We miss him so much still.

Something to say?
