Gifts For Pets Owned By Geeks Who Treat Them Like Spoiled Children

Gifts For Pets Owned By Geeks Who Treat Them Like Spoiled Children

In all honesty, this entire list is a “do not buy” for normal people, but I love my dogs beyond reason. So, here are some unreasonable gifts for them, your pets and your pet-loving geek friends.

Remote Fetch: Ball chasing is very good exercise for pooches, even if it can cause obsession and anti-social tendencies that will result in thousands of dollars in dog therapy. Capable of being remote triggered at 7- or 15-second intervals, or just automatically throwing balls your dog drops in the bucket, it might be worth the trouble. Think of it as the equivalent of a video game for a dog. $299 from godog.com.au [GoDogGo!] [imgclear]

Hotdoll:Ugh! Someone actually went and turned the hotdoll dog sex-doll concept into an actual product. The doll has a silicon… nevermind. We had one at Gizmodo Gallery and one owner brought one in to see if their dog – that loves humping – would hump it. He did not. I guess just like real people, it takes a flexible sexual orientation to find comfort in inanimate figurines. Price TBD [Hotdoll on Giz] [imgclear]

The Hydroglass: For those who believe fish are pets, even though you can’t hug them, I’d find it hard to believe you could do better than this fish tank, which has a seven-head horizontal shower on top. $US14,500 [Hydroglass] [imgclear]
