The best part is that one of the dogs sounds like someone doing an impression of an old man doing an impression of a dog.

On the Internet, nobody knows you're a... no, wait. I can see that you're a dog. Never mind.

Am I the only one who wants to know what game the dude was playing in the background?

Dog is responding to a video, not Skyping. This is dog film-criticism, not dog telecommunication.

Has someone invented Chatroulette for pets yet?

I am now rather surprised that while catroulette.com technically does exist, it's just being sat upon and not used for the obvious purpose of randomly presenting cat videos.

Chatroulette for pets would probably contain less penis flashing than the people one.

it's a canine plot. They do a lot of sleazy domain barking.

What is up with that dog's voice? He sounds like a were-terrier caught in mid-transformation.

But more penis self-licking.

I thought 'chatroulette' was French for revolving cats.

I'll trade Skyping dogs for my flying car in a heartbeat.

No, it's a rarified form of gambling in the tonier French casinos. If you ever plan to give it a try, make sure you bring plenty of kittens to tip the croupier with.

I have to say, I think the more traditional "domain squatting" would have worked just as well here.

It's viral marketing for the relaunch of HMV.

I seem to have used my 2000th favorite on this post. Thank you, everyone, for all the entertainment the last few years. :)

Man, this is going to suck (but at least we have Skyping dogs).

Ooh, baby, let's skype doggy-style.

Well, there's bass and soprano; now they need a tenor and an alto to round out the chorus!

Jeez... What did we do before YouTube?

That was so cool. I've moved from San Francisco where my pup had lots of doggie friends to Houston, where opportunities for doggie friendships are less frequent and where most everyone is afraid of my big, giant boy. I would love for him to Skype with some of his old friends.

If cats learn to Skype we're all in trouble.
