If you’ve ever wanted to bring your dog to work, but just can’t manage to sneak him or her by your boss and coworkers, consider adopting a FooPet instead (also great for kids)!  They just finished developing their new desktop version which can add a little fun to your day as you work!

If you’ve never adopted from FooPets before, they have a lot of different breeds to choose from (and they add new ones regularly), toys for them to play with, and a stats counter to make sure that they are well fed and watered.  Not only are they cute, but they each have their own little personalities!  I just adopted a little Chihuahua from the shelter (they’re FREE!) and named her Bean.  She will certainly provide me with a little distraction throughout the day while I work, but hopefully not too much!

If you’d like to be Bean’s friend, my name is alldogblog1!

AT&T and Verizon are considering all dog lovers everywhere.  The two companies have ideas of incorporating a wireless collar to their networks that could potentially save the lives of canines that find themselves lost and end up in shelters.  The president of AT&T, Glenn Lurie, has a vision of the device being able to track your pet if it were to find a way out of the house.  We all know it happens all too often.

Many shelters are full of canines that fall under the spell of their nature to roam, but then find themselves behind bars and begging for a new home.  Some are lucky enough to have responsible owners who implant microchips and keep updated info, but others are not.  If this new tech collar is able to go mainstream with an affordable service for every dog owner, I see great potential in such a product. 

I would definately add ‘Unlimited Pet Messaging’ to my monthly wireless bill!
