porkloin: I have a dog.  This dog loves me.  She loves my wife and my grand kids.  This dog has innate sense about anyone who comes to our gate.

The dog abides.

emotion_lotion: No robot could ever give a good belly scrub like I do.
But it they build one that picks up the poop and puts all nice in a plastic bad and ties the end in a knot I am so getting one.

A cheap robot launcher for tennis balls or soft toys safe for indoors, the ability to play tug of war for hours, coupled with an automatic, scheduled can opening and the dog wouldn't notice I'm gone.

Okay, I'm drunk right now but I watched that video and it didn't prove anything. The dogs had a human trainer/owner with them all the time -so it's not like the dogs are accepting the robots as part of their pack.

I had a friend who used to feed his dog beer. That dog loved it too. I found out later that you really shouldn't give dog's beer because it causes obesity or something that we humans are immune to.
