Afraid your pooch feels lonely when you're away? Worry no more. A company named PetsMobility has created a mobile phone that our four-legged friends can wear around their necks, allowing pet owners to call their canines while at work or on vacation.

The device, dubbed PetsCell, measures 5 inches by 3 inches and comes in the shape of a bone. It works like a regular--albeit very basic--cell phone. Owners call their dog's number, and the phone automatically picks up after the first ring, putting the device on a speakerphone setting.

PetsMobility says the phones provide a nice comfort for pets who may get lonely while their owners are away, but that they can also help lost pets find their way back home. Anyone who finds a stray dog with such a device can simply push a button and ring the owner's own phone to let him or her know where the dog is.

No word yet on whether the device will be interoperable with Takara's dog translator, Bowlingual.
