No more sofa-dissassemby looking for that freaking remote. No more searching for those unused cartridges while the geese flap lazily overhead in a tight bombing pattern. And the distant chirping of your cellphone is no longer the cue for a 10-second 3-staircase assault course, you just call out, 'Here, Gussie!" and up she comes. Whereupon you undo the velcro pouch, and your handheld device is once again held in hand. Nuff said.

       Yeah, I fully expected it to be at least 3/4 baked. Not for indoor use, though. Couldn't find a discussion of on the bakery.

       Jeez. Why don't you just train your dog to answer the phone?

       How about a remote control robot dog (with bandolier) to bring you the remote control. Sony are bound to be making on of these however....WalkRemote?

       It's not exactly a bandolier - more a sort of tiny SWAT vest - but my dog has one of these. There are pooper-scooper bags in it for when we take him for walks, plus a tiny bowl and a bottle of water - actually, a minature plastic hip-flask. It works well. There is a flashing LED beacon that clips on the back so we can see where he is in the dark.   

       Wouldn't work in the house - you could yell all evening and he'd never come .......

       Christ, 8th, an LED? Doesn't he get teased by the other dogs?
<quavering adolsecent voice>"I'm new around here. Do you wanna be friends?"
"Beat it, Flash."
"Yeah, and don't come back til Christmas Eve. And only then If it's foggy."

       I haven't fitted him up with a laser target designator yet, but I'm sure you'll understand that that's only a matter of time. And he doesn't get teased - other dogs - even big ones - see this appartion trundling towards them wearing what looks like a kevlar flak jacket, and tend to do a runner.

       [GW] ...how often do you take your dog for a walk?
jumblebox, Sep 27 2002
  

       Not as often as I feed the chickens.

       A friend of mine trained his dog (a big retriever) to fetch him a beer from the refrigerator while he stayed on the couch watching TV. Apparently the key to this is tying a towel to the refrigerator door handle, so the dog can bite it & pull to open it.

       I've thought about the training the dog to fetch a beer (purely for showoff reasons, i don't drink beer), and decided that the beer would need to be in an openable-by-dog ice chest. No WAY am i teaching my dog how to get into the fridge! The one flaw i can see with this is that the dog may not be able to manage a beer bottle in their jaws. How'm i gonna show off with "Tanzi, get a beer!" if she brings back a can of Lucky Lager?!?   

       I do kinda like the dog bandolier though. My dog likes to hang out when i watch tv, so it'd be pretty handy for the remote. My first mental image was of a bandolier loaded with dachsunds...

       With a bit of adaptation, it would be a way of allowing a nursing bitch to carry her pups with her on a walk...... some dogs love long walks, but the pups need feeding regularly....
