OMG!! he is soooo smart. He actually waits till he hears the ball retracting and then makes a run for it!! I luf eet!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 06:27 AM

That dog is a freaking genius! I should have him do my taxes.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 06:33 AM

If this is a purchasable product, I need to know where! Pure Genius!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 06:36 AM

Do they make one that shoots plush squeaky toys?

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 06:40 AM

omg - this is awesome!!!! And what a smart dog, he's adorable!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 06:41 AM

Too, too FUNNY!

Where can I get me one of those machines?

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 06:42 AM

OK- this one gets sent to LOTS of people! Thank you!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 06:44 AM

That is hilarious. But can you imagine it still going at 3 AM? I could see my cats dragging it into the bedroom at breakfast time.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 06:45 AM

Either he's a frickin' genius, or that's a pretty bad case of OCD. ;) INSANELY REDONK!!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 06:45 AM

This is such a cool video!

Holy Cuteness
 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 06:48 AM

omg that is soooo adorable!!!!!!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 06:53 AM

No wonder puppers is so slim and trim! If only I could find something that I like to do this much, maybe I could be svelte, too. Love the close ups of the grizzled old face. Such a cutie!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 06:54 AM

PS extra points for Mozart in the background!!!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 07:12 AM

Oh, no! If my fiance' sees this he'll start building one for the dong we don't even HAVE yet! ;-p

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 07:12 AM

::::snickering childishly at CB's typo::::

I love how his tail keeps wagging nonstop. He's *so* happy with this game.

Theo, I can has weenerdog plz?

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 07:14 AM

Where was this thing when I had labs! Although I wonder if the slobber factor would be a problem, like rusting out the mechanism.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 07:14 AM

CB, I DO hope that's a typo for "dog." :)

And I think this gadget looks like insane amounts of fun for all concerned!

That is one seriously happy OCD puppeh!
(I love his old white face...scrunchles ears between ball tosses)

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 07:22 AM

look at little asian kid, doggie isnt the only one having fun!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 07:40 AM

OK I see what this is. (lol) It's one dog's answer to a recent news bummer:
"A study by Saint Louis University found that a lovable pooch named Sparky and a robotic dog, AIBO, were about equally effective at relieving the loneliness of nursing home residents and fostering attachments."
When the dachsy heard that, he said, "OK, two can play at that game."

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 07:43 AM

Wonderful! :-D I love how the pupperton reloads the machine!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 07:47 AM

That is possibly the most awesome thing I have ever seen.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 07:49 AM

wonderful! what fun

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 07:51 AM

I love it! I want one! Look at what great shape that dog's in! Does he play when you're not around? Seriously, get thee to the patent offishe! This is brilliant! Show investors this page with all the comments.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 07:52 AM

Grrr ... I can't watch the whole video - it always stops somewhere in the beginning! Barooooooooo!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:01 AM

its a good thing the machine isn't any taller...:D
*stubby legs running*

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:02 AM


That is frickin' AWWWWESSSOMMMME!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:07 AM

What a smart pup! And what a cute little kid! Brilliant invention, I must say!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:08 AM

SO CUTE! And what a good way to give the puppy some exercise while you're at work...

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:09 AM

Arlo R.? I think I worked with an Arlo R. on some Tech Museum stuff long ago...
Paly Vikings?! I went to Paly.. hard to believe it is just a coincidence.
Small Cuteoverload world...

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:18 AM

Aww...dachshunds love playing fetch so much, mine will go after the ball for daaaayyys! I need one of these! I would show all you CO people how cute she is, but the person that runs this site never posts a single thing I send her.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:20 AM

That's one puppeh who will never need to be put on diet food!

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:31 AM

There was a brief shot of the top of the machine...it said ball counter 10000. I wonder how long it took for this guy to rack up 10K in fetches:)

And it showed a doggie on the face of the controls - it must be an actual gizmo someone has manufactured for doggie playtime.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:32 AM

I would have paid SERIOUS money for this item had I known about it when I had a cocker spaniel! Can't believe a doxie would do this...mine wouldn't EVER let go of a ball voluntarily, let alone fetch it at all! Soooocute, expecially the hiney wag shots!!!

Doxies are automatically cute in my book. I think it should be a rule of cuteness.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:33 AM

That may be the funniest thing I have ever seen in my entire life.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:35 AM

I LOVE it! That little pup is so happy! Gave me a tear in my eye thinking of my Fritzie (miniature poodle), who would retrieve for hours till he dropped if you kept throwing for him - he would have thought he was in dog heaven with a gadget like that! When we had little kids over in the summer, we had to take the ball away because they would just keep throwing it till he got heat exhaustion if we weren't careful. Sigh. RIP Snicklefritz.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:41 AM

love it! I'd like to see what that far wall looks like--full of circular yellow spots.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:49 AM

This just cements my theory that my dog would love a toy-throwing machine as much as, or more than, she loves me.

What a cute doggy he is, though. *heart*

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:52 AM

LOL Magnificent... I love how the dog perfectly places the ball for optimal launch.
and the perfect toy to keep kids and dogs entertained

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:53 AM

that is HILARIOUS! I had to watch it again. I didn't even notice the little fuzzy terrier-in-training til the 2nd time.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:54 AM

okay .. one word of warning ... on the rarely heard of word of "Too Much Exerscizes" . .. uhm .. that puppeh was actually born as a ST. Bernard, with a pituitary issue ... but, thanks to some help from puppeh richard simmons, and that incredible device, puppeh's shrunk down to a lean dachzund size J/K .. great post .. must have one of those, oh, and a puppeh, I don't think My cattz, would enjoy that device

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 08:55 AM

RJ my cats would love it. Chasing balls being a favorite past time.

 |  Mar 18, 2008 at 09:04 AM

Awesome! What a smart goggie. I looked at the comments on the YouTube page and the guy said it started out as a simple project, and then he got into it and it took him 2 years. There are infrared sensors, too, to keep the dog from snagging himself in any machine parts, etc. And it only supplements the manual ball throwing, and the dog is supervised with the machine. There. Pre-emptive nuff snuffing.
