Dogs might be man's best friend, but they are also rather neurotic. Pup psychologists believe that pets can experience separation anxiety if they're left alone for long periods -- something to chew on next time you head off to work or out on the town. Ease your conscience with the Talk-to-Me Treatball: not only does it automatically dispense tasty snacks using a clever internal spiral, but you can even record a voice message that plays whenever your pooch paws the ball. It's made from durable, dishwasher-safe, lurid blue-and-red plastic (so it should stand up to Fido's inevitable lonely gnawing), and at $15, it's got to be cheaper than a veterinary psychiatrist.
