Wouldn’t it be great if your pets had their own Twitter account and let their pals know what they are up to?

Mattel’s Puppy Tweets hooks to your pet’s collar and periodically sends tweets based on their activity. Everyone will know if your pooch is chasing squirrels or sleeping on the couch while you are away.

The Pet’s Eye View Camera takes photos throughout the day and stores them for you to download when you get home. Imagine the excitement of seeing food dishes, the couch, and Animal Planet on the television.
