yip yip yip

I bought Cal the most annoying toy in the world a couple of weekends ago, one of those yipping animatronic dog toys off the streets of Chinatown. Though we have an actual live dog in the house, Cal seems largely indifferent to Cooper's presence, while this new robo-dog is apparently the greatest thing that has ever happened to us in the history of ever. Since he loves it so much, I guess it's here to stay (at least until some more annoying toy catches his fancy) but man, the noise that thing makes just cuts right through into your brain. Not to mention that it's MADE IN CHINA, which means not only does the battery casing keep popping open, the dog's fur is probably impregnanted with lead and poisoned children's cough syrup.
