Pretty cool! Just make sure there are no windows around.

Oh wow, my Sydney would love it because she is a ball hound. Can't get enough of chasing balls.

Maybe I can get Katie to buy one of those for me. I love simple, repetitive tasks.
If we weren't meant to eat animals, then why are they made of meat?

What a fun looking toy for an active dog! Now if it would only launch DH's clothes across the room so that he would run and pick them up and put them in the basket himself! :)
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Lol, I saw "Dumpalink" and then pdswife saying "hope there's no windows around" - you don't even want to know what went through my mind!

Anyway, really neat. That dog really seemed to enjoy that. Unfortunatly it would probably terrify Aspen lol.

Are they available or did this person just do this specifically for his own dogs? This sure is great. Especially when you can tell the dog never tires and doesn't care how the ball got to the end of the hallway? Didn't miss the owner at all. Do you think you would have to supervise the dog when this is working so he wouldn't get his nose caught in the firing barrel. Seems the dog wanted to make it fit in there perfectly. What a smart little dog. Dogs are great. If you see them for sale let me know. This guy could market them for sure.
