Well the trash can kind of does need fed. Yesterday I got a large envelope with "Important Documents Inside!" written on it. The "important document" was a Fingerhut catalog. That's neither important nor a document.

I like the small river cruises and we have taken a few Viking ones. Maybe we should try other river cruise companies and compare?

Maybe we need one now. Never thought I'd need an iPad until I got one. Now we have one for every room in the house. Just request beach condo information and you'll also be flooded with weekly brochures.

Wouldn't mind a robotic dog. Then I wouldn't have to worry about it out living me. I guess my current fake pet is Alexa who lives in Echo Dot. She really is smart and only speaks when spoken to.

We just have real cats, so i don't need a fake pet to be concerned about as well.

I NEED an automatic trash can. Give CJ my address, please!!! I want a REAL dog. And I don't want junk mail from Viking River Cruises.

I get those Viking Cruise brochures and I never requested one in the first place! We have nine dogs (along with cows and bees), so no need for any substitute pets around here. I do like Gary, though...

So does it close automatically too? The problem with pets is what to do with them when you travel. Although I bet Gary gets lonely.

Gary seems pretty cool. Fake pets? Not that I am aware of but my kiddos might tell you a different story. We have our real pet and she keeps us plenty busy. Take care Stephen.

Gary is awesome! Now I want one. We have lizards who wander into my house. I used to name them, but they'd stay a few months then leave. Broken-hearted, I'll never name anything again! lol

I don't need a robotic dog or cat, but I'm pretty sure I'd love a robotic house cleaner. I think the closest thing in existence right now is the iRobot vacuum cleaner. That would be my pet. My husband's pet could be the iMow.

With three cats the last thing I need is another pet, fake or not!! I'm glad for CJ's sake that you are now so enthused over Gary :)

I used to have a very realistic bunny puppet... I had a blast with it entertaining my kids, friends children and passengers in other cars when driving somewhere. Mind you I wasn't driving-just entertaining myself and others! Now that Gary Garbage Can sounds very cool! Cheers!

Nope. All out pets are live ones. Our circumstances are different because Jilda's brother lives next door and he has a key to our house. When we're out of town, he takes care of our critters. R

Gary sounds like a hoot!!

Well...I'm pretty sure you won't have to worry about Gary shaking and foaming at the mouth and hiding under the Little Barbershop of Horrors for five hours. Our Puppy Jack was sick today.

I already have a ton of pets but I would LOVE to have that garbage can!
By: Marcia kester Doyle on March 3, 2017
I like that! I'm going to get one and name it Phil, Phil Debasket. (old joke) If you want mail, start entering the Publisher Clearing House contests.

I have a shredder I am fond of, though I usually visit it only once a month. I've found that also helps reduce the litter I have to carry out.

Gary the trashcan. Hmmm. I like the idea, though. We don't have pets, either -- for the same reason. Now, then, what would I name my trashcan?

Motion activated garbage can: It's going on my birthday list right away.

I just saw one of these recently, and hadn't thought of it as a pet, but yes, that fits! And I can say nothing about names... Most of the animate AND inanimate objects at our house have a name. Husband knows I am asking for the timer, if I request Fred, for instance. I guess for fake pets... My phone. At least I don't need to clean a litter box for it! Cat

I'm so glad I don't suffer from animal-related allergies. Our house would be so empty without the (real) animals that call it home. I remember pet rocks being a craze years ago. Did that ever hit your neck of the woods?

This was very funny. Gary's attractive too. I have a slew of stuffed animals. They never argue, are extremely huggable, and behave themselves when I leave town. The meet my (almost) every need.

My husband brought home a rescue pet - he said for a few days - well two years later Buddy is still here. We ar retired and it can be a problem sometimes - but we love Buddy so "oh well" - life goes on.

Gary - hahahaha! I love it!

So Gary your virtual pet fits the bill... for now. Get the travel bug out of your system. A furry friend can come into your lives down the road. AH no fake pets at this time. :)
