I wish I could find a copy of the commercial for "Pet Sitter Dora". It's probably the most disgusting thing I've ever seen on television. It just about sums up everything I hate about pet-replacement toys. I mean, geez louise, isn't a cat doll or something like that enough?
"Hey kids! Do you want the love and affection of a living, breathing creature but without the mess and responsibility? Then why not buy a creepy robot that really 'loves' you? Those real puppies and kittens will be put to sleep soon anyway! New from Uncanny Valley Toys Inc.!"
