Man Wins Award for Creating Fake Dog TesticlesThursday, October 06, 2005Gregg Miller mortgaged his home and maxed out his credit cards to mass produce his invention — prosthetic testicles for neutered dogs.What started 10 years ago with an experiment on an unwitting Rottweiler named Max has turned into a thriving mail-order business. And on Thursday night Miller's efforts earned him a dubious yet strangely coveted honor: the Ig Nobel Prize for medicine."Considering my parents thought I was an idiot when I was a kid, this is a great honor," he said. "I wish they were alive to see it."The Ig Nobels, given at Harvard University by Annals of Improbable Research magazine, celebrate the humorous, creative and odd side of science.Miller has sold more than 150,000 of his Neuticles, more than doubling his $500,000 investment. The silicone implants come in different sizes, shapes, weights and degrees of firmness.Although the Ig Nobels are not exactly prestigious, many recipients are, like Miller, happy to win.
You might piss him off a bit.I would be livid!
Thanks Evie & Don. I agree with you regarding the training. I've tried it, and still try it, but unfortunately it doesn't work when only 1 person in the family follows through.
