Techie Tuesday: Dog day afternoons...

Have you ever wanted to give you dog a treat when you're not home with 'em? Wanted to tell 'em good doggy or give other encouragement at the same time? Well, look no further. The Talk to Me Treatball does just that and more:
Basically, the Treatball is a talking (yes, talking) dog biscuit dispenser in the shape of a wonderfully chewy plastic ball. Simply record your own personal message for your four-legged friend and Treatball will replay the recording every time it's rolled or nudged. We recommend a simple but effective "Good dog", as imbecilic "Coochie-Coo" baby speak could well convince the neighbours that an escaped lunatic has been employed to look after your pooch. Re-recording your message is simply a case of pressing a button.

As for the treats – well, a specially designed interior allows yummy doggy biccies (available separately) to be dispensed randomly one at a time, so your dog has to work for his treat rather than be rewarded every time the ball is rolled. This ultra-durable ball is dishwasher safe and a glow-in-the-dark version is also available should your dog wish to frolic at night.

Sometimes techonology is a doggone fine thing..
