Dumb Product Idea of the Month #1!

Okay, after seeing this mentioned on auronsgirl's journal, I had to chase down a link and put it up for perusal:

Okay... so anyone want to explain to me just why the hell the decision makers thought this particular brand name would be a good idea?

(and yes, I suppose it really wouldn't be "of the month" since it's like 1 1/2 months old, but I just saw it today for the first time, and that's what's important after all.)

Notice the press release includes all the warm, fuzzy, feel-good bits of the movie, and leaves out the ending. You know, the one where the poor dog gets rabies and is shot.

I can't watch Old Yeller ever again, and I've only ever read/seen Cujo once. Call me a pansy-ass, call me whatever you like, but I cannot take it.
