I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

New dog in the house?

It's no secret that I miss being a multi dog family. Up until now circumstances have made that impossible. I may have found the perfect fit...FurReal!

Ranging in price from $199.00 to $460.00, Biscuit's a real bargain!

It makes me a little sad to see all these electronic/virtual pets, in the marketplace. On the other hand, they might be a good option for people that can't handle the responsibility of a living, breathing, feeling animal.

More Biscuit

OMG, is it bad if I admit I want one?! LOL. So cute.

He is really cute but we still prefer the real thing. We don't think he can play chase or bittie face or go in the lake..

Poor Biskhuit will probably end up in toy reskhue or on khraig's list somewhere -

Oh geez - I got all excited when I saw the title of your post! I don't think that Biscuit is what Stumpy is hoping for!

Sandra said...

Oh my. I thought this a sad thing, but when I read your comment about this being a better choice for many people I had to agree. Biscuit knows more commands then Howard and Grace though!

Unknown said...

Hmmm I'm a little jealous biscuit comes already trained. I'm still in school. PS Stumpy- I don't prefer big butts and a smile... I'll be back au naturale soon.

Sam said...

I agree with your thought that these electronic pets might be a good idea for people who don't have the time, energy, or patience to train a real life dog. I'd never settle for one, but hey, whatever floats your (collective) boat..

That said, I bet Stumpy really wants a real brother or sister, so you better make it happen ASAP! :P

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

T, I want one, too!!! If only to torture, Stumpy.

Heelers, I prefer the real thing, too. but I really really can't bring another dog home, at this time. Still, am always looking...

DG, Stumpy would shred Biscuit and want a new one. worse than a kid she is.

Sandra, it is sad, in a way. Kids getting fake hamsters, dogs and not knowing REAL love and never learning the responsible part of love... there will be results from that, in the future. But, yeah, on the other side of the coin are the people that shouldn't be responsible for anything living.

Norwood, Biscuit can't hunt frogs! He'll NEVER be you! glad the extra body hair is just a temporary thing!

Sam, Stumpy and I REALLY REALLY have to hld firm on the one dog, for right now. It's hard, though, not having a pack.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Khyra, I am pretty sure the people that can't take care of a real dog, won't do any better with this... We'll find poor Biscuit, broken and out by the trashcan. On the brightside, he won't be adding to the pet population.

You know whats next, don't you? Electronic children to play with the electronic dogs (and cats should be coming soon,too!) For the overworked executive who will never have another lonely evening in their snazzy condo!

At least its better than cloning things!

Stella, the real thing!

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Stella, thanks for stopping by! Electric kids, maybe not such a bad thing for some of the humans I see....
