Technology has not only made waves in helping us humans, but also our canine sidekicks Everything from “smart” collars to wireless surveillance cameras and a disco light jacket have all played a role in improving the lives of man’s best friends. And Skype wants us to know it too plays a role by assisting a pet detective in tracking down missing pups.
In a video called “Finding Donut,” viewers meet Valerity, Russia’s only pet detective. The former police officer and criminologist has for the past 25 years searched for every animal under the sun.
In this particular case, Valierity is tasked with tracking down a woman’s lost dog, fittingly, named Donut. As time is of the essence, technology – more specifically Skype – is used with the owner to video chat, send pictures, message, and in the end, nab the dog.
The clip is part of “The Things We Can Do,” a series showing how real-life people use Skype around the world to communicate and collaborate with others. Other stories include pet sitting, jamming with out with friends and reporting on climate control.
