    If it doesn’t poo, it’s not a dog. Unless it’s electric poo…?

      I guess that you don’t read Vogue. The September issue was over 900 pages.

        Yikes!  Also probably the only magazine in which readers don’t complain about the 80% ad content.

        EDIT: To be honest, I enjoy leafing through all those fashion ads.

    Miles Monroe:
    Is he housebroken or will he be leaving little batteries all over the floor?

    You mean that 3 wheeled green box with a black line drawing on the front that has vague references to a canine face isn’t a dog?! 
    Wow, do I feel stupid!

    Color me unimpressed…

    This primitive electric dog of 1929 is clearly no match for the ATOMIC DOG.

    I’m not sure the magnetic steering mechanism (I assume the cane has a magnet) would work if it relies on a “sheet iron magnetic shield.”  That is a classic feature of perpetual motion machines.

    See, if someone were to make this dog nowadays  it would be audrino powered and use cameras to track the end of the cane.  There’s something to be said for analog simplicity.
