This isn’t the first doggie cam. And there’s a tutorial floating around the internet (a few actually) that show how to make one (though they cost about the same as this). Or you could just buy a spy camera and attach it to your pet’s collar.
It’d be interesting just to see what Monty does all day. If you see a new link to “Monty’s Flickr” in my header links, you know I broke down.
Normally I’m against this sort of joke (my friend’s favorite joke: What do you call a Korean walking 5 dogs? A caterer.). AND I’m against dog clothing (though my dog has 5 items of clothing, I purchased 2, my girlfriend bought Monty 3 things). But I do kind of want this:
No near-beer for Monty. He drinks only the finest tap water available in the entirety of my apartment, the kitchen sink. Sometimes I add a little dog breath/mouthwash (animal specific, I’m not putting Listerine or something in his water).
I’m all over this for my boy Monty. What’s funny (okay, not really) is that the pic on the site if a mini Schnauzer, which is what Monty is. Though Monty is not cropped at all (not counting his balls). Monty’s on the smaller side of the acceptable mini schnauzer range (though apparently he’s HUGE compared to dogs in South Korea). Since he’s small and my apt is big, I always just figured he got enough exercise. And it’s not like he’s fat (I’m talking about Fatwick here, I’d post a pic if I had one). But I want this to make sure he’s moving around enough. Because I’m a bad owner and don’t take him for long leisurely walks. I used to take him running 3 miles 5 days a week, but he got TOO skinny and didn’t like doing it during the hot humid Texas summers.
On the other hand, Monty is NOT getting this. It’s called the Super Catcher and it attaches via a harness to your dog’s ass and catches his poop so you don’t have to scoop it yourself.
