Anybody have a webcam?

I am seriously about to go buy a webcam so i can see what Tyler does in his crate while I am at work. I know he probably sleeps most of the time but I am dying to know how long he whines for and how the HECK he completely cleans out the kong. I stuff it with peanut butter and treats and i really mush it in there so that he has to work to get it out and when i come home it is completely empty. He also redecorates a bit. I know a webcam might be considered obsessive or neurotic or something but I can't help myself. Has anyone done this? What have you learned about what your babies do when you are not home and they are alone in their crates?

When we got Louie he was already 1.5 years old and pretty soon we trusted him to have the run of the house so we placed a camera to see what he does when we're got home. Well at this time he wasn't allowed on the sofa... now him and Chevy aren't allowed on the sofa only when company is over. Anyways, within 5 minutes he was on the sofa.

I should set up the camera now since both boys have the fun of the house.

I did this too, and I found that the dogs planted themselves right up on the sofa, where they knew they weren't supposed to be. They slept pretty much the whole time I was gone, only getting up every once in a blue moon to look out the window. Nothing too exciting!

There's a woman on her that has a web cam set up for while she is at work, not sure of her name though. Not much use I know.

Bought it!

Well, i finally bought the webcam last night and set it up today. There is a way to watch it live through a website but i haven't gotten that far yet. I can't wait to go home tonight to see what my little guy does while he's alone in his crate!

That is hilarious! Let us know how you do it. I have a webcam too and would love to see what Brandi does while we're gone at work. Haha...has anyone seen a similar commercial with "dottie" where the husband is dancing in his boxers? I love the look on his wifes face with the co workers laughing in the back. I think its a southwest airlines commercial.
