Walk your Shark

How do YOU walk your pet shark?

Until now, proud shark owners had no way to take them for a walk.

Carefully attach the shark leash to the shark's head. There are sizes for all types of domesticated sharks. Mount the tank on the motorized cart, customizable to fit your shark tank. A remote control on the leash handle drives the cart as you and Sharky go. Happy walking.

       Hmmmm .... pelagic sharks have to swim continuously to maintain ram oxgenation of their gills. That limits the idea.   

       But it would work for dolphins. Mind you, dolphins are pretty smart, and might give rise to the question, "Who's walking who ?", especially in your case.....

       If your shark is the athletic type, there should also be a little squeezy bulb attached that you can pump, which causes the shark tank to momentarily lift off the ground to allow it to clear small hurdles on the pavement, such as sticks or cracks.

       True. Stated idea will only work for nurse sharks, for others you'd have to addin "Endless Pool" TM technology that would provide a current, so add in two clear plastic channels in the bottom sides and a clear plastic fan driven by the mechanicals underneith to draw the water thru the channels toprovide a constant current. Or dump the tank and give him a reverse scuba suit which could be powered by his own swimming motion.   

       Fishbne for killing your pet.

       //Mount the tank...//   

       Tank ? *My* shark has a custom-fitted SCOOWBA gear* , and dolphin-leather finguards for injury-free ambulation.   

       * Self Contained OutOfWater Breathing Apparatus   

       - originally conceived in the late 1800's to allow fish owners to walk their pets. The device normally consists of a "mask" which fits over the critter's gills, filled with water, which is constantly re-oxygenated.   

       [edit]... heheh, MisterQED, great minds think alike

       Why not just a larger Roaming Goldfish Bowl?

       I sorta like the idea of the shark interacting with the environment.
