Touch Pets Dogs For iPhone -- Adopt, Nurture and Play with Your Virtual Puppies
Another reason to love your iPhone. A socially-networked virtual pet game is in development exclusively for iPhone and iPod Touch. Publisher ngmoco and virtual pet genre pioneer Andrew Stern of Stumptown Game Machine have announced the spring 2009 release of Touch Pets Dogs for the iPhone.
In Touch Pets Dogs, players adopt, nurture and play with their virtual puppies through one-on-one touch screen interaction or on play dates with other players' dogs from around the world. The ambitious Touch Pets social network, embedded within the game, allows owners and dogs alike to build relationships with other players and their Touch Pets. Puppies' social lives continue to evolve whether their owners are logged into the game or not, and the results are broadcast for the world to see on the Touch Pets social network dog feed.
Players can also personalize their 3-D pups with new clothing, accessories, toys, grooming tools and other doggie gear. With five different dog breeds to choose from, Touch Pets can be trained to fetch, catch and do tricks using a variety of toys, touch commands and accelerometer inputs. Puppies can grow in five exciting careers: Crime-fighting, Science, Rescue, Fashion and Political tracks. The right training can prepare a Touch Pet for dozens of career missions where it can earn special reward items and mission postcards that further define its unique identity -- on and off the dog feed.
In addition to the predictable touch interaction with an adorable cartoon puppy, the game features advanced AI simulation and social networking features that make it a more interesting proposition.

Dogit Fresh & Clear Drinking Water Fountain for Dogs
We featured the Catit Fresh & Clear Drinking Water Fountain last summer to provide your home-alone cats with a fresh source of water. Here is one for the dogs.
The Dogit Fresh & Clear Drinking Water Fountain for Dogs was designed with the large breed dog in mind. It provides a more comfortable raised drinking position and helps to ease the strain on the dog's neck and back muscles, making it ideal for older dogs or dogs with joint and muscle problems.
Simply filling a bowl with water isn't enough because standing water does not circulate and becomes stagnant. The re-circulating flow of cool, purified and oxygenated water is beneficial to your dog's health by encouraging it to drink more fresh water which is essential for proper kidney function.
