Did you ever want a dog that doesn't pee on the rug? Inud the Robo-Dog by Segatoy is for you. He responds to human touch, voice commands, and movement, and will even let you shake its paw.

Now, industry sources claim that Inud has an alias "the Dream DX robot dog," but why such a cute little fellow would have an alias is beyond me, unless there was an evil progammer in his past life that made him do bad puppy things, of course.
