IPKAT PATENT OF THE MONTH: AUGUST 2003

IPKat’s patent of the month (found on Patently Absurd) is a must for the dog that has everything. Tired of your dog carelessly dipping his ears in his dinner? Are your fido’s follicles filled with food? Then invest in a pair of these rather lovely ear protectors.

According to the specification:

“This invention provides a device for protecting the ears of animals, especially long-haired dogs, from becoming soiled by the animal's food while the animal is eating. The device provides a generally tubular shaped member for containing and protecting each ear of the animal, and a member to position the tubular member and animal ears away from the mouth and food of the animal while it is eating.”
