Sega Dream Dog DX -- Nothing Says Cute Like a Golden Retriever


Hard to find anything as cute as a Golden even if it is a robot. Probably won't come trotting across the lawn to greet you when you come home. Or have quite the same look in those big brown eyes. Or carry the leash around in his/her mouth when it is time for walkies.

But no more slobber on the floor in the kitchen, or clean up in the yard. This Golden Retriever toy will respond to voice commands (that would be refreshing). The Sega Dream Dog DX will sit, roll over, bark and nip at your fingers when you play with its nose. Sega Dream Dog DX will be available this September for $276.

Panic Mouse Undercover Mouse Cat Toy-- Plus 6 Tips for Choosing Your Cat's Toys

Not sure what to buy your cat? Below is a toy that appeals to your cat's hunting instincts.


Panic Mouse Undercover Mouse
is so lifelike it convinces your cat there's a live mouse in the house. The stealthy movements of the mouse will stimulate your cat's hunter/predator instinct to secure the catch and provide hours of fun.


The toy moves silently--randomly speeding up, then slowing down, reversing direction under a durable nylon cover. The kit Includes:

  • One Undercover Mouse electronic cat toy
  • One ripstop nylon skirt
  • One mouse wand

Why is the Panic Mouse Undercover Mouse such a popular cat toy? Here are some tips for choosing cat toys:

  • Appeal to the hunting instinct "Cats like to track things, so they love any toy that brings out their hunting instinct," says Michele Levan, creator of the award-winning Moody Pet Fling-ama-String Motorized Cat Toyicon toy.
  • Hold your cat's interest "It's good for indoor cats especially to have something besides food to interest them," says Tina Cheng, DVM, of the Animal Clinic of Encino in Encino, Calif. "Cats are attracted to motion -- they will always love anything that bounces around and simulates the movement of a live insect or mouse," she says.
  • Safety first "A toy shouldn't have any little eyes or a nose that a cat could pull off and choke on," says Maria Sabatine, owner of Pets Naturally, a pet store in Sherman Oaks, Calif.
  • Don't make it too frustrating
  • Intrigue fat and lazy cats " A toy that intrigues a cat enough to stalk it, pounce on it or toss it in the air is a worthwhile investment, especially if your kitty is overweight. Cat Dancer Cat Toy, described as a "cat action toy," features a small piece of cardboard the size of a large insect. It dangles from a wire and so fascinates cats that they'll stand on their hind feet to swipe at it.
  • Make it fun for people A cat toy should give you hours of fun watching your cat play with it.

Throw Away the Shampoo and Wash Your Pet in a High-Tech Bubble Bath


Wouldn't it be great to throw away the pet shampoo and wash your pet with jets of water only? IDEC Corp will release a micro-bubble generator for a dog bath this Friday June 20. The system washes dogs with streams of bubble-filled water instead of shampoo. No more suds!

Called "Wan love yu" which means "Dogs love warm water", the jaccuzzi's tiny bubbles apparently can remove dirt from between the fur and on the skin. It works through a special shower head that discharges water containing approximately 600,000 tiny air bubbles per cubic centimeter.

Just pick one up for around $6,000 to $7,000 and use with your standard pet bath. Or wait for the price to drop!

Missing Pet? Track Your Pet with a Retrieva GPS Pet Tracking Collar


We have featured GPS Pet Tracking Systems periodically at Super Cool Pets: the Zoombak Advanced GPS Dog Locator, the Garmin Astro, as well as the PetCell™. A stolen or lost pet is one of life's agonies, but these GPS systems can save the day and make that misery a distant memory. Here is an update on another state-of-the-art GPS Tracker.

The Retrieva GPS Pet Tracking Collar system has a lockable collar, made from anti-cut material with automatic interference alert to discourage pet theft. Owners can log on to the system's website and zero in on the exact location of their pet on the site's panel. If your pet leaves a pre-determined area, an alert will be triggered and a text will be sent to the owner's phone.

It uses three tracking technologies, satellite, mobile and radio transmitters, so your pet can be found virtually anywhere--inside buildings, underground, in cars or in dense vegetation.

One feature for the owner we particularly like--if you feel endangered while walking your pet, you can hit the Retrieva's panic button to call for help.


More features from the site:

Tracking Technology

* Contains 3 different tracking technologies (satellite, telecom and radio frequency) to enable location in virtually every environment
* Has 'sky-view' GPS antenna to optimise performance
* User-programmable for changing operational performance and reporting frequency
* Global coverage with appropriate SIM card

Anti-Theft (Security) Features

* Has locking buckle with automatic interference alert (via SMS text) if the buckle is tampered with whilst locked
* Made of anti-cut material with automatic interference alert (via SMS text) if any attempt is made to cut it
* Can alert the owner (via SMS text) if the dog roams out of any pre-defined safe area or enters a forbidden area

Design and Convenience

* Programmed and delivered so that it is 'ready to use'
* Comfortable, stylish and integrated collar design, with reinforced webbing strap
* Waterproof and dustproof to IP67
* Adjustable for size to ensure comfort and security
* Suitable for virtually all dogs - small, medium and large
* Harness version available (late 2008) with the same features for very small dogs
* Self-diagnostic button on the buckle to allow user to assess performance
* Create virtual fences wherever you go
* Communicates directly with your mobile phone, the internet and/or a hand-held receiver
* Automatically alerts you of many events by SMS text, including low battery alert and dog leaving a safe area
* Optional 'easy release buckle insert' available for use in environments where you would not normally put a collar on your dog but may still wish to track it. Useful for all types of working dogs. If the collar does break free you will receive an automatic alert of this event by SMS text. (Nb. Insert cannot be used with a lead. It is bright yellow and tagged with a clip to the D-ring to remind you to remove it if necessary).

"Tell Me Where It Hurts"-- A Day in the Life of an Animal Surgeon

An intriguing new book out is a "behind-the-scenes" account of a day in the life of a vet: Tell Me Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing and Hope in My Life as an Animal Surgeon by Nick Trout, a staff surgeon at Boston's Angell Animal Medical Center.
A quick summary from Susan Richards, author of Chosen by a Horse:

"Dr. Trout has given us a lifetime in one day as he takes us on his rounds as a veterinary surgeon. With equal parts, wit, wisdom, and great kindness, he offers a rare look into the mind and heart of a remarkable man. He is the vet every animal owner wants and the advocate every animal deserves when it comes to facing the complexities and often expensive options of diagnostics and treatment. This is a man who loves his job, and everyone benefits: the animals in his care, their often lovable but sometimes infuriating owners, and, lastly, the reader, who is lucky enough to go along for the literary ride."

Tell Me Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing and Hope in My Life as an Animal Surgeon. Also available in Kindle Edition--download in less than a minute. Don't have one? Information about the wireless reader Kindle is one click away.

Don't Overcook Your Pet -- Hotdog™ Temperature Alarm

Living in Florida, we see a fair amount of pets closed up in cars on hot days and sometimes wonder if they are ok. We know the owners don't realize how hot their car can get.

If you ever have to leave your cat or dog in a vehicle on a warm day, you won't have to worry as much with a Hotdog™ Temperature Monitor programmed and installed. It detects potentially deadly temperature rises within your vehicle. If the temperature exceeds your programmed setting, the Hotdog™ lowers 2 electric windows and will activate the car horn or lights to alert you (and everyone else around). The Hotdog™ is also available as a portable unit.
