Sunday Evening Dog Blogging: Pupparazzi Edition

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

Last Christmas, my sister got me the Pet’s Eye View camera. It’s a digital camera you attach to your dog or cat’s collar. You then set the photo interval at 1, 5, or 15 minutes. The camera takes 40 digital photos. Daisy and I took it to the park today to try it out.

    Ha! I knew that crap about dogs not being able to see colors was just a myth!

    I’m afraid that if I tried that with my dog all she would come back with is pictures of other dog’s poop.

    Great pics- good dog, Daisy

    The third last one; Did she smell good? Was she cute?

    I was thinking it would be fun to attach that little $25 mini-camcorder thing to one of my dogs. I never seem to get around to trying it, though. Probably because I can’t quite figure out how I would attach it.

    Back in the old days we didn’t have “little $25 mini-camcorders”. It was a lot of work to attach a camera to an animal. But did we complain? Hell no!persevered.

    Sorry. My mind works in strange and mysterious ways and this came unbidden into it.

    Good thing she didn’t photograph any police dogs.

    Hmm… fewer dog butts than expected.

    Dog… or cat? I like my cat, but I’m not sure I want to see 40 pitch-black images of whatever he happens to be sleeping on.

    And we wonder why the rest of the world hates us.

    @ #5 Dave Krueger: I bought one of those, and the one I got has a little loop in the plastic that you can thread a string through, and you could attach that to your dog’s collar.

    What I really wanted to do was rig a harness-like thing that would position the camera just above and behind his head so it would shoot right between his ears, but I’m not sure I have the kind ambition required for such a project. And I’m not sure at what point I’m crossing the line from playing with him to abusing him. You know, like when we attached reindeer antlers to him around Christmastime or made him wear a party hat at my birthday party…

    Under his chin might not be a bad idea. I like the way these pictures turned out. The tongue adds context and the low angle provides a dog’s perspective.

    Hey Judas Peckerwood…

    I’m hoping your tongue was in cheek then… in case not:

    Seriously, it’s NOT because of harmless indulgence in amusing puppy-blogging, nor is it due to the fact that we can afford to have dogs with cameras in their collars.

    They DON’T hate us (the West) for that sort of thing – they aspire to the same standard of living and would willingly switch places in a heartbeat.

    If you’re keen to really understand why they hate us (or more accurately, why they hate YOUR government: they don’t hate YOU), think how you would feel towards yon Chinee if the Chinese government kept blowing US children to bits using Predator drones and had 130000 troops (and 180000 mercs) in Canada “spreading freedom”.

    Dog-mounted camera divertissements are, like, 500765th on the list of ‘their’ grievances… probably even below, like, saying “like” all the time.

    Oh – and PS… on the MD80: that shit is cash.

    (1) Put MD80 in baseball cap
    (2) make fun of rotund doughnut-drone from the Thin Blue Whine
    (3) load results to Youtube
    (4) ???
    (5) Profit.

    (Warning: the above may result in periods in intensive care).

    But seriously – the ramifications for sousveillance are enormous. Who wants to be they get banned-ed?

    “You know, I have one simple request…and that is to have sharks with frickin’ laser beams attached to their heads. Now evidently, my cycloptic colleague informs me that that can’t be done. Ah, can you please remind me what I pay you people for? Honestly, throw me a bone here…what do we have?”

    Very nice shots, Daisy. I used to take my poopy to that dog park, but his tennis ball obssession lead to a fight once (although he got along with the otehr dogs just fine as long as they left him alone :) )

    I want one. Much fewer dog butts than expected.

    So, do they post signs round dog parks that tell cops to stay out? I was thinking something like, “Cops brandishing firearms will be eaten alive”.

    They’re especially good when Daisy’s hanging tongue is at the top of the pic. *chuckle*
