Joke 1 - Florida Atlantic University

I love this local prank.  FAU enlist the help of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Dachshund Rescue South Florida, and Lion Country Safari to make this joke work.

A little background so you understand the prank.  FAU takes the trend of universities and colleges going pet-friendly a bit further.  The reason for pet-friendly schools is an effort to make students more comfortable with having a pet in their dorm room.  

Joke 2 - Analog Watch Company

Using your own pet's hair to make your watch...  ewwww, but funny!

Joke 3 - Amazon's Alexa

Amazon's new 'Petlexa' will interface with your pet's speech patterns (whether it is barking, squeaking, chirping, or meowing) and allow them to communicate their needs.

Joke 4 - Evine's DIY goat milk soap kit

At first, I couldn't even tell if this was a joke!  It looked like a real shopping network telecast.

Joke 5 - Tough Mudder and Nula Pet Food

Puppies and an obstacle course how can it get better than this?
