Brilliant or Baffling? Dog-o-Matic Washing Machine

Um, whoa. That looks like a helpless puppy trapped in a washing machine. But, while that's technically what it is, he's meant to be in there. Check out this interesting creation to come out of France — the Dog-o-Matic, an automatic dog-washing vending machine. Owners choose the required wash cycle and load the (unsuspecting) pooch into the proper machine size costing about $18 for small, $31 for medium, and $44 for the largest pets. Most of you loved the dog/car wash so what's your take on this washing machine?

That would be comparable to a human standing out in the middle of a hurricane, so mean

My dog would be completely traumatized by this thing!!! And for $44...I would pay $10 more and take him to the groomer!

I am completly astounded to see that someone actually thought this was a good idea. Any dog would need therapy after such traumatic event. It's horrible!!! That poor dog :(

That poor dog looks terrified. There is no way I'd put any animal in there.

Neat idea but completely uncalled for and cruel. I cannot image any animal thinking that being trapped in a container with water, soap, hot air, whatever coming at it would be fun.

This is so wrong, the poor dogs will get soap in their eyes, etc. Seems like torture to me.

This is the MEANEST thing I have EVER seen!!! I would NEVER, EVER put my dog in there!! The person who invented this should be shot. This is nothing but animal cruelty!! My heart aches for the sweet, little dog in the picture. He looks so sad and frightened.

This looks like abuse!That poor frightened pup! I can't believe anyone who loves their dog would do this.That is like taking your baby to the car wash and bathing them. I do not like it at all!

Any dog I know would freak out!!! I say put the inventor in there.

Oh man, I wouldn't do that to ANY dog. That's torture. That dog in the picture seemed so helpless. Well, who wouldn't be, I'd imagine you'd feel like drowning and betrayed by your owner. Sadness.

i would never put my dog in there... I just think of how scared and confused he'd be as he stared out at me and it brings a tear to my eye :(

This is a cruel and inhumane way to bathe any creature. They don't understand that you'll eventually let them out and they don't know where the water is coming from. I am absolutely disgusted and appalled!

I'm sure my Tulip would say that would take all the fun out of bath time.
