Dogsong

Pleasant poochy pitches in high-Fido-elity

So there are CDs with music for dogs. Ostensibly they serve to soothe the savage beasts. They have songs with such memorable titles as "I'll Be Back," "I Love Food," and "Squeaky-Deakey!"

While your canine friend might enjoy these (I can only imagine) irritating tunes, your human friend (this means YOU) is probably considerably less interested in these ditzy doggy ditties. So why not make the music in pitches above the range of human hearing? The pooch can still rock out pleasantly without disturbing nearby homo sapiens.

       You can make music with pitches above our hearing but you can't record it on cd - cd's can't cope with anything above 22.05kHz. You'll have to make a specific device to reproduce it.

       RCA nailed this technology ages ago.

       Given there's a ring-tone that youngsters can hear and adults not (by and large), you probably could at least produce doggie songs that only dogs and children could hear. In fact, that's the kind of novelty product that really sells well for about ten minutes.

       Just double the speed of the motor playing the CD. That should bump everything up an octave....

       "Dogsong" is wonderfully alliterative. It is a term that must have some use somewhere.
