Koln, Germany–After keeping their taxidermied family dog in the living room for 4 years Albert and Petra Zimmerman decided to make better use of their small living space by combining the home computer with Ex-pet Dieter.

“I work as a computer programmer in the city and am a bit of a technology hobbyist”, said Albert. “We love our lost dog and want to keep him around as long as we can. We just felt this would be a way for us to interact with him on a daily basis.”

When asked about how he transformed the dog he said it was quite simple. The dog was filled with a hardened foam that was inserted through a seam on the dogs belly. Zimmerman remove the foam and replaced most of it with a wire cage for support. The component are wire tied down and there is a exhaust fan on the far side of the dog.

Zimmerman even gave us all the specks on the dog/computer. It is equipped with a AMD Athlon 64 processor with DVD burner and even a remote TV tuner. He says they plan on connecting it to a new LCD TV within the next few months.

The Zimmermans also added that almost always the first question people ask is where is the USB Port.

should have put the exhaust fan in his butt. That would've made more sense.

Now is the time on Sprokets when we dance. Touch my Dieter Dog. (fade to 80's eurotrash synth music)
