Herding the Roomba

In my book, I wrote about the Roomba, an automatic vacuum cleaner that several dog guardians I interviewed swear by. No one told me that the little robo-cleaners could inspire mayhem but today’s Wall Street Journal reviews the weird, wacky and sometimes violent interface between Rex and R2D2. Now I’m thinking I should have included a section on introducing robots into your dog’s home or at least suggested Roboquads under the pets for your pups category.
