Pet Chime doorbell for dogs

Posted in Pets by Conner Flynn on May 14th, 2008

Pet Chime doorbell for dogs
As far as I can tell, the Pet Chime is designed for those who never want a moment of peace ever again. Dogs just can’t reach the doorbell, or maybe they just can’t grasp the concept of a button that opens the door, being attached to the door.

Apparently, the Pet Chime can be used inside or outside, so that your pets can inform their owners when they would like to be inside or out. As every pet owner knows, that would be every five minutes…for the rest of your life. The “paw” doorbell component operates on a 9-Volt battery, the ringer operates on three AA batteries. It will only cost you $25-$30 USD to never again be able to relax.

Hamster powered toy car looks fun, fast

Hamster powered toy car looks fun, fast
Let’s face it, if you’re a hamster it doesn’t get much better then this. It’s either riding in the self-powered Critter Cruiser, or passing your time between defecating in one corner of your cage and drinking precious drops of water from your dripping IV bottle in the other corner.

This self-powered Rat-rod is the highlight of your life, my furry friend. But sadly, your rodent brain doesn’t seem to know the difference between this and the wheel in your cage. Which, frankly, sucks for you. So, in conclusion, this is probably more fun for us humans to watch. I think we should probably harness hamster power to charge our gadgets. Check out the video below.

Four-Legged Wetsuits make pets hate you

Posted in Pets by Conner Flynn on May 1st, 2008

Four-Legged Wetsuits make pets hate youCats don’t like water, but dogs aren’t too thrilled with it either. That’s why someone invented this wet suit for dogs. Small ones, like Chihuahas. It’s for when you want to force your dog in the water and make it look like an idiot at the same time. The outfit comes complete with flippers, goggles and a tank. I can easily see Paris Hilton dressing up Tinkerbell in this gear.

The doggy wet suit was featured as part of a Philippine fashion show and was worn by Mondex, the scuba dog. I don’t think they’ve actually tested it on dogs yet, but I could be wrong. If I know humans, one will be available very soon for the rich.

Spoil your pet with the Luxury Pet House

Posted in Pets by Conner Flynn on April 28th, 2008

Spoil your pet with the Luxury Pet HouseIf you’re looking for new and better ways to spoil your pet, you might want to look into the Luxury Pet House. Sure, it looks like a toaster oven, but don’t worry, nobody is going to make toast out of your little furry friend. Apparently it’s more about keeping fluffy comfortable and happy in his/her own little environment. Paris Hilton would love this thing for her weird little animals.

The Luxury Pet House offers PC-managed controls, temperature and humidity limits, infrared radiation and carbon heating walls, antibiotic air, solenoid valve “medical treatment,” and carbon filter-based deodorizing. I’m guessing that the only thing it doesn’t have is an option for cryogenic freezing.

Potty Training Brick makes your dog pee

Potty Training Brick makes your dog pee
Needless to say, we here at the Brick are none too happy about this product. We’re not amused at all. There are some lines you simply don’t cross. To quote the late Jim Croce, “You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind, you don’t pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger and you don’t mess around with Jim.” We’re adding, “You don’t pee on the Brick.”

This strange little “brick” is supposed to make it easy to train your dog to pee. There isn’t much information, but the Potty Training Brick is supposed to have a unique scent that makes dogs want to pee on it. It’s $20. You don’t piss on the brick! That’s all we have to say.

Betta Aquarium: cruel to fish – cool to see

Fish In Space

Here is a very cool looking retro Sci-Fi style aquarium called Fish In Space. It’s also very small for the poor fish. The thing is only powered by 2 button cell batteries for goodness sake. How would you like to be the fish whose life depended on 2 button cell batteries? It has glow in the dark stars that look neat in the night time. The UFO on top beams some cool lighting into the aquarium too. I bet the fish wishes that it would abduct it’s sorry scales out of there.

Still isn’t it every intelligent civilization’s goal to put fish into outer space? Well, after seeing the picture, I think we can all be convinced that it should be right at the top of the list.

Bone Calculator

Posted in Calculators,Pets by Reuben Drake on August 10th, 2007

Bone CalculatorNo, this isn’t some kind of cool device to calculate skeletal bone density, the number of the bones in your body or anything like that. It’s simply a calculator shaped like a bone which must be targeting dog lovers (or dogs themselves) with each of the little keys shaped as paws.

The Bone Calculator has a clamshell design that flips open to show the number pad on the bottom and a single-line LED display on the top part, and would compliment the desk at any pet shop, veterinary clinic or dog lover in general. The calculator measures 4.5 inches wide and sells for $19.95 at TheSpoonSisters.

Body fat meter to measure your dog’s body fatMeasuring your pets body fat isn’t always as easy as lining the paws up on a body fat meter for people but having an overweight (or underweight) pet can be an issue and something you might want to keep tabs on.

Bark Be Gone

Posted in Pets by Chetz on May 3rd, 2007

Utlimate Dog Silencer to help with barking dogsDogs and barking go together like cats and meowing, milk and cookies and Britney Spears and a wig. If you’re the owner of a pooch that can’t seem to learn to stop barking at every slightest thing you should think about investing in Good Life’s Ultimate Dog Silencer.

No, it’s not a trip to the pound; instead it’s a doohickey that fastens onto a collar. Every time your dog barks the UDS emits high-pitched sonic and ultrasonic frequencies, the latter being only in the range that your canine companion can hear. The makers of the device claim that eventually your dog will come to understand that every time they bark an unpleasant sound is heard, and just like Pavlov learned in his famous experiments, they will pick up the hint and stop barking so much.

If you think this sounds a …
