Pet lovers never seem to give enough to their animal companions. They pamper their pet with “gourmet” food, “designer” garments, satin and silk beds, jewel encrusted collars, and much more

There is really no way to even know that a pet can appreciate all the things we do for them, but that doesn’t seem to thwart our efforts.

The latest is from a Tokyo content provider, Dwango, who is getting ready to sell ringtones that only dogs can hear. The service, called “Inu ni shika kikoenai chakushinon” (ringtones only dogs can hear) will make free downloads available to current DoCoMo i-mode subscribers.

What practical purpose this development will serve was left out of Dwango’s press release.

I’m sure there’ll be a lot of unanswered cell phones next to barking dogs, wishing the damn things would stop ringing.
