I dare them to try it with a cat.


#3

If I made something like this for our dog, one of our cats would crouch in the corning hissing at it while the other figured out how to destroy it.


#4

The position of the tail should tell them something.

The second they go out that dog is going to eat part of it.


#5

My cat would just focus on the destruction of the person responsible for it. :pouting_cat:


#6

Psst, this isn’t “for the dog.”


#7

The gears look great. The dog looks unimpressed.


#8

Too bad for small dog. Big dog gets all the pets.


#9

They made that funky contraption, but couldn’t make a ‘hop up’ stool for the little guy? Pffft. Amateurs.


#10

“Please get me out of here.”


#11

Why would anyone build a machine that performs the most enjoyable part of interacting with a dog?

What’s next? A robot that eats your ice cream? That admires a stunning sunset? That has sex with you?


#12

and here I’ve been manually petting my dog like a fool!


#13

"I INSIST ON WARM PRIMATE HANDS.

RUB THE BELLEH PRIMATE.

LOWER.

LOWER.

OH GOD NOT THERE YOU FREAK."


#14

Nah, this is:
“I worry about you. Constantly.”
