Pampered pets are getting all the attention. Last week, we wrote about all the money that’s pouring into pet-tech land. This week, we’re featuring some of the weirdest ways we’ve recently found to spend cash on our furry friends:

  • dogPACER Minipacer Treadmill, $531.43. Dogs need to get their steps in, too. Enter: the treadmill for dogs
  • Hot Doll, $217. It’s not just cats that get frisky, so here’s, uh, a doggie sex toy. If your dog Sparky is a little too “friendly” with guests, this could be exactly what you’re looking for.
  • Neuticles, ~$310. These are fake dog testicles for furry little friends who are feeling emasculated after getting fixed. Wow. That escalated quickly. Anyway… yeah, let’s just stop there.
