Okay, I was posting the "ibuprofen" entry below when the Regis and Kelly show came on. Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark were hosting today. Anyway, they brought out this cute mechanical FurReal dog that responded to "sit," "lay," "speak" and other commands. Mandy, our Westie looked up at the TV and reacted as if it were a real dog...whining, hopping around, wanting to play. Wish I'd had the camera handy.
(The "dog" they had was a golden lab, I think, but I couldn't find a picture.)
