Would You Skype with Your Dog? (What if It Was Very Lonely?)

Man dogs are great. Having a dog is great. Playing with your dog is especially amazingly great. But leaving man's best friend for a whole day at work? Ugh no never HOW CAN WE FIX THIS? Skype, apparently.

It seems that pet owners are increasingly using Skype as a way to check in on and interact with their pets. Which might seem excessive if it wasn't so adorable. Would you sacrifice whatever human dignity comes from not being the idiot talking to a cat on a computer screen to get a little more face time with your favorite pet?
