Remember the “Ultimate Dog Tease”? The video that most deservingly went viral last year? You know… the one about a man telling his dog all about the meat, and bacon, and other kinds of goodies in the fridge. Then he tells the dog that he gave it to the cat, and the dog cries out in despair. By far, that is the best voice over I have ever seen of dogs – and probably a lot of other voice overs, too. Currently the hit counter is approaching 119 million hits. Oh, sure, not as many as some music performers get when they release a new video, but definitely better.
According to the Apple website, Photo Booth allows the user to take photo snapshots and video clips with their Mac. The user can send them to friends, use one as an iChat icon, add them to their Address Book, or organize and edit them in iPhoto. The real fun starts when you use the effects and backdrops in Photo Booth.
I came home and found a posting on my Facebook page about this new app on dog fighting! I have never been so shocked! I have two rescues, a mother/son duo with the son genetically born deaf and blind in one eye (aka a “lethal white aussie”). I have have helped with dog rescue, trained shelter dogs and adopt them out, etc etc etc. And have personal friends in the dog world who rescue pit bulls who often were rescued from fighting circles. And now, to see this app come out… it truly sickens me. Not that there’s enough violence in the world amongst men… then to glorify such a horrific illegal activity…. I am at a loss for words.
Here is an excerpt from the app page on the description:
“Feed, water, train and FIGHT your virtual dog against other player’s… action games, chatroom, many characters and dogs to choose from, virtual store, etc.
This is a fresh Beta version, come try it out. Drop your cred codes and ideas in the comments section or message boards on the web. Check the shoutbox in the game for news and game updates, or just talk fight and talk smack with other players.
Remember this is a Beta release…”
