    Chad's Crappy Corner & His New Theme For May 2017

    Chad polled our amazing Patreon members and asked them to vote on a theme for May. Their choice, and the one Chad was hoping for, is Cheap Pet Gadgets!


    Chad's first pet gadget is the Pooch Selfie! First from Amazon: The Story of Pooch Selfie. We love our dogs and we love to take pictures of them. But somehow dogs just don't understand that and won't stay still long enough for a decent picture. Getting them to look into the camera is just about impossible. To help solve these problems, we are proud to introduce the Pooch Selfie, the Original Pet Selfie Smartphone Attachment. Pooch Selfie comes with a removable Squeaking Pooch Selfie ball and One Smartphone Attachment. Slide the clip over your smartphone or tablet and attach the tennis ball on top of your phone. That's it! Pooch Selfie provides clearances for both front and rear facing cameras. Designed for both iPhones and Galaxy smartphone models and is also compatible with most 3rd party smartphone cases.


    And Chad's take: It works pretty well. Watch Chad's video of trying to take pictures of his dog Charlie, 1st without the Pooch Selfie, and then after attaching it. Chad got a couple of great shots of Charlie staring up at the ball on the camera. Chad pointed out that you may have to flip the clip around so it doesn't block the camera on your smart phone, but you'll see it does get a dog's attention. Chad paid $12.99 for his on Amazon. There are also some others devices that look like the Pooch Selife, but Chad bought what is said to be the original!
