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]
