Hope Your Christmas Toys Work Better Than This One

This is a Christmas present that started out as a great idea and took a turn for the worse. Even new batteries did not help. Talk about a nightmare before Christmas! (Was he drinking? Was it his circuit board? Or is he truly a cousin of Zuul, minion of Gozer?)

We hope that Dogster readers’ Christmas gifts work better than this one. At least it appears the dog still has a receipt flapping about his left ear. There’s no way I would let this creature stay overnight at my house for fear he’d somehow turn on in the middle of the night. He would make the Twilight Zone’s Talking Tina look tame.

Below are models of the dog that work as they’re supposed to. This version is good for small children, and very sensitive dogs.
