Did you ever wish you could just put your dirty dog in the washing machine after he rolled around in the dead bird carcass you discovered in the backyard? Well apparently now you can. It's not exactly a washing machine but starting at $21 the Dog-o-matic will have your pooch from foul to fresh in less than 30 minutes. The Dog-o-matic vending machines are quite successful in France and inventor Romain Jarry hopes to bring them to Britain.
Using the Dog-o-matic is simple. Even mutants and small children can operate it. First select your wash-cycle and size. It is about $20 for small dogs, $35 for medium and $49 for the largest customers. Inventor Romain Jarry also notes that cats can be catered to, for the small dog price. Good luck doing that without getting your eyeballs scratched out.
Place the pooch inside. Close the chamber and push the start button. Mr Jarry said: 'It doesn't take long to wash the dog - usually a few minutes. The longest part is the drying. The dogs don't seem to get bored. They just sit there and they come out clean." Yeah right.
A soggy pooch gets the wash cycle. Does he look like he's having a good time?
