It turns out that not only can my dog Betelgeuse use the iPad to FaceTime with cat cousin Future Cat [post here], she can also use it to FaceTime with Future Cat's new puppy brother, Rigel. It shrinks the 700+ miles between Brooklyn, New York and Columbia, South Carolina to almost nothing. Human and environmental costs aside, the results couldn't be cuter.
Betelgeuse: Seriously, Rigel, you gotta try the cat food.
What else is the iPad good for? Well, it makes a great puppy length and width measuring device.
