Silly Excuse for a Dog

The US military has presented its latest toy: a robotic dog. So far, it can do just a little of all the things that a real dog can do, which makes it a silly excuse for a dog.

Still, I suppose the robotic dog will be evolved and later editions will be better. This does not scare me. Up until about a hundred years ago, the horse was the main tool for human travel and a lot of other things, but they have now been replaced by cars, tractors, lorries, and other motor vehicles. Nevertheless, there are more horses in Sweden now than there was a hundred years ago. If robotic dogs would replace real dogs in more capacities, there will certainly still be room for more real dogs.
