back to hilarity

I love that I will now be able to tune into to keep Tango and Murray company while they are home alone.

It is a message that many of her listeners need to hear. Ms. Harris is a D.J. on, a new Internet radio station for pets. Now dogs, cats, hamsters and parrots can keep the anxiety, the loneliness, the restlessness at bay while their owners are out. It is radio just for them, live 17 hours a day, 4 a.m. to 9 p.m. Pacific time, and podcast for the rest of the 24 hours.

This is not at all crazy. Noooooo, not at all.

And in case you were concerned that since I work such long hours, perhaps Tango and Murray aren't keeping up their Spanish skills... fear not.

Since many pets are apparently bilingual, DogCatRadio also has a "Spanish Hour," 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Pacific time daily, with Hispanic commentary and music, like Luis Miguel's "No Se Tu": was started last June by Adrian Martinez, who is also president of Marusa records, an independent record label in Los Angeles. He runs the station out of a customized RV parked in his office lot in the Eagle Rock section of Los Angeles.

I know I will rest easier at night and be able to work more effectively for my employer knowing that the pups will be entertained.

Chew on.

I love this! So funny, but I always leave "noise" on for the cats when we go away for a weekend or vacation.

Maybe they can become bilingual? LOL

Oh this is nothing. My sister in law has a DVD that she plays for her Rottweiler when they leave her (the dog) home alone. I honestly think it's a full 90 minutes of dogs running and playing.

I have to confess to leaving the radio on for my dogs all day; it's tuned to NPR, though, so I expect them to update me on world news when I come home at night. Hasn't happened yet, but we can dream...
