Some of us really like birds and have seriously considered investing in one as a pet. But then, maybe discarded the idea after realizing all the work involved. Here's another idea.
This 9 1/2 Foot Remote Controlled Bald Eagle goes for less than a large tropical bird such as an African Grey. This Eagle is powered by a gimbal-mounted engine and propeller with a 9 1/2 foot wingspan that can catch the wind for broad, soaring turns for hours of outdoor fun.
The transmitter controls the Eagle up to 500 from away with the ability to replicate the bird of prey's agile turns and dives. Once basic soaring is mastered, it can also perform loops and even hover in-place against the wind. We're thinking Christmas....

Does your dog hang out the window when you drive? Ride in the back of your truck? Or even curl up in your lap? Our Goldens clearly think we drive way too slowly and often consider climbing up front and taking over the wheel.
According to the Doggie Distractions Fact Sheet | AAA/Kurgo survey, nearly six in ten (56%) of those responding have driven with their dog in a vehicle at least once a month over the past year.
