The Woofer - turns your dog into a walking boom box
poor dog :cry:

The Woofer: making music with man's best friend

If you love music with your dogs, and dogs with your music, the new and aptly named Woofer, may be just what you've been missing. Like that famous duo peanut butter and chocolate, Matthew Baron believes that canines and your favorite tunes are two great things that go great together.

2. that person obviously isn't a dog owner
Yeah, let's strap a boom box to the dog, crank up the tunes and NOT expect the dog to go out of his mind and say, bite someone because their guts are getting beaten down with bass tunes?

The stupid is DEEP with this one...

7. It'd be better if it was equipped with a beer cooler.
An even better best friend.

13. Dogs have sensitive ears. I'm curious how loud that thing gets.
They way a lot of people use boom boxes, that could be extremely cruel.

14. This appears to be acoustically unsound, no pun intended
A dog, or a fabric device placed on a dog, would absorb low frequencies. Woofers - the speakers - need to be surrounded by a nonresonant cabinet of appropriate size. It will also cause unwanted resonances in said dog. Brown notes might be a possibility.

17. I really hope this is a prank. I have a tiny, 2 gb, clip on ipod.
I can simply attach it to my shirt, or put it in my pocket if I have a long headphone cord. I don't need a dog to carry my music around.
