Everyone has a cell phone these days. It's almost become more important to us as the computers that we use. Why shouldn't your dog be able to have that same luxury as well?
Yes, I thought the same thing when I first read it, “they're crazy.” Actually, as a dog owner I think it's pretty cool. The phone is basically a collar for the dog, and it can alert you when your pet has left your yard, and allows you to track it via a GPS unit. Also, if someone finds your dog, they can call and let you know that your pup is safe and sound.
If the price is reasonable, I would definitely buy one. After all, I shouldn't be the only one in my house with all of the cool gadgets. No word yet on pricing or availability.
