One of our Golden Retrievers dashes to the edge of the pen on a mission. Following quickly behind we glimpse a gray/brown mass in her mouth. Our girls are skilled huntresses, but they are also, thankfully, retrievers to the bone. At our stern command, genetics kicks in and our dog dutifully drops the bunny who scurries away. Whew!
Yes, they can have a bunny for Easter, but we like this Magic Hat with Rabbits Puzzle Plush Interactive Dog Toy better. Doggies can interact with these bunnies all they want. Stuff the rabbits in the hat and let your dog get them out.
This durable toy will keep your dog occupied and is available at Amazon and Muttropolis -- Utopia for Pets and their Parents.

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.
