Train Your Dog to Destroy Your TiVo Remote… Wait, What?

Doggy Remote I’d file this under “Incredibly Bad Ideas.” Michael over at The WeaKnees Blog spotted this at his local Best Buy. It is a dog’s chew toy, clearly designed to look like a TiVo peanut remote. Ignoring what’s almost certainly a design trademark violation, isn’t this tantamount to training your dog “It is OK to chew on things that look like this”? Seems like it’d be sending mixed messages. It is like giving kids candy in prescription medication bottles.
