Hasbro FurReal Friends Cookie My Playful Pup £52.77 @ Amazon
I love the idea of having a dog or a cat as a pet, but when I think of insurance, vet’s bills, walks and picking up after them, I turn gratefully to my once a week maintenance requiring fish tank. (And even with that I seem to kill more fish than keep them alive!)
The Cookiepie will respond to your voice by moving her head, blinking and barking, and will ‘talk back’ like a real puppy would, apparently. I’m not sure about that, honestly, but if you’re after a ‘friend’ that can stay home alone for a week, then this isn’t a bad place to start.
Along with the pet itself, you’ll receive a puppy toy and collar and 4x ‘C’ Batteries.
