Your Lonely Grandparents Can Now Get A Robot Retriever To Keep Them Company

Last year Hasbro wowed, and saddened us a little, with a new line of toys targeted at seniors in need of a companion, but without the need for all the mess that comes along with a pet. The first addition to its Joy For All line was a robotic cat, but it’s now being joined by a robotic golden retriever that any dog lover would spend hours playing with.

Pedalling This Exercise Bike Gives Your Dog A Workout Too

You can probably think of countless reasons why you don’t want to take your dog for a walk. It’s too cold, you’re tired, your arch nemesis lives around the corner — the list goes on and on.

There's A New High-Tech Mattress... For Dogs

I adore my 10-year-old pup. A lot. To the point where my mother dodges my calls on vet days so she doesn’t have to hear a breathless blow-by-blow of his every aspirated fatball. But my fixation is, admittedly, less about the dog, and more about the countless pet “gadgets” I’m offered on a daily basis.

Can You Find The Cat Taking A Nap On This Pile Of Wood?

Let’s play a game. Can you find the orange tabby cat that’s supposedly taking a nap on this pile of wood without going crazy?

Here lies Sir Meows-A-Lot, beloved pet of Sally, Ted, Nancy and Job. He was a good cat who was stolen from us too early.

Rest in peace, buddy.

This Video Shows Why You Shouldn't Turn Your Back On A Big Cat
