Oh pet lovers, say it isn’t so. Ranker.com has compiled a list of “Insane Pet Products for Crazy Pet Owners”…gasp! Apparently, they don’t know that there is no crazy in our pet loving world!! Blaggards! (For those unfamiliar with the term Blaggard, the Urban dictionary’s definition is: A villain, a rogue, an evil or “black-hearted” person.)
Crazy is a relative term my friends.
Here is a synopsis of some notable items.
An Accessory for Your Dog’s Twitter Account-Puppy Tweets by Matel
“With Puppy Tweets, a $30 device manufactured by Mattel, dogs all over the world can finally have their barks deciphered by wearing the nifty device on their collar. Because that’s all they’ve ever really wanted: a heavy object hanging from their already tight collar and a social media presence. You have something “the matter” with you if not only have a Twitter account for your dog and actually update it, but also need a collar so that it can keep up with its own “Twitterstream. Yes, this product is real.”
Our 2 cents and a woof: We wish we had them for our dogs! Oh, by the way, obviously they never checked pictures of OUR twitter friends! Mostly dogs, cats and other assorted lovable critters.
The Fish Walker
“Sometimes fishes need some fresh air and to exercise their ability to not die of a heart attack due to their world literally being turned on its side. Yes, this product is exactly what it sounds like: A walker so that you can “walk” your goldfish like you would your dog. Mick Madden is the creator behind the goldfish walker, which he uses to take his pet goldfish out for a stroll in the sun. He said “I was looking at my goldfish going round in circles in their bowl looking bored silly so I made this to take them out and about and they love it.” Also, they go everywhere together. To the park. To the pub. Even to the adult video store where he regularly picks up “the only women who love him for who he is.”
Our 2 cents and a woof: Dude, what happens when you hit a gravel walkway? Are you dead in the water? Just sayin’.
“Have you ever stared at a poop slowly emerging out of a dog’s anus before plopping onto the soft, green grass? I haven’t. You have? That’s gross, man, why are you even looking at that. You got problems. Anyway, that experience is the reason this contraption exists. “Rear Gear” butt covers for dogs, a colorful placard that ties around the pup’s tail and hides their hole from the public. Thank God that this problem is finally being tackled in our society because I was actually scared to take my children outdoors because of this… wait no, because of the people who will actually buy this.”
Our 2 cents and a woof: Just wondering if you have time to remove it prior to use? It’s a whole different kind of doggie door.
Other items on the list: The Dog Snuggie, doggie thongs, doggie mink coats, automatic dog washer, sex toy for dogs, sparkling water for dogs, “No More Butts” dog perfume, the kitty wig, a luxury dog house, the dog treadmill, poop auto-collector, gold thread pet mattress, nail paw-lish, pet tattoos, cat toilet, automatic ball launcher, automatic cat laser toy.
