Eukanuba OFF LEASH is the first application that helps you find an off leash dog park near you. Use the Locate Me feature on your iPhone or enter your zip to find the fun. It can pinpoint the 5 parks closest to you.*

Keep this application on your phone if you are a dog owner, or know someone who is. That way, when traveling with your dog, you can take them to the closest park that doesn't require a leash.

Cat-Mew Machine, 1963 & Dog Restrainer, 1940

I guess this is for people that are allergic to cats! :) In case you can't read the small print:

"This mechanical cat can meow ten times a minute and the eyes light up each time. The device for scaring rats and mice is from Japan and is powered by a two-watt motor."

Man! I am SO glad someone invented leashes!

More Than 1,000 Animals Saved From Home

HOUSTON - Hundreds upon hundreds of animals are confiscated from a home in northwest Harris County.

The Houston SPCA tells FOX 26 this is a seizure that could set records.

"We're actually in the process," said Meera Nandlal, "of probably one of the biggest animal rescues in the history of the U.S. We have well over a thousand animals now that we've taken from this home."

The final tally? 1045 animals, including a pony, puppies, chickens, parakeets, ducks, gerbils and snakes.

"The conditions are horrific," said Nandlal. "There's lots of trash. They're unsanitary."

The owners told the SPCA the animals were to be sold at flea markets.

They were not immediately arrested or charged, according to a Precinct 1 Constable's investigator. The District Attorney's office will determine whether charges are filed, once the animals' conditions have been documented.

Within ten days, a judge will set a hearing to determine custody of all the animals.
