As I’ve previously established, I basically live under a rock, or at least a pile of four children, so I often miss pop culture trends when they’re actually popular. Case in point: Insanity Puppy. I just discovered this meme.
I actually discovered it because I saw a news item about i-SODOG, the brand-new robotic puppy from Tomy Takara, which debuted this summer in Japan.
And what I saw was pretty freaky. While Mashable’s headline says that i-SODOG is “ready to steal your heart,” I’m not so sure. I mean, look at the eyes. Plus, it’s not even furry, like the adorable (but super-expensive) robot baby seal, Paro.
So then (obviously) I Googled, “dogs that will steal your soul” and there was Insanity Puppy, a Husky pup that is some kind hellish of crossbreed between the UConn mascot and the dog from The Omen.
So, in case you missed them a year ago when they were hip, here are my favorite images from the Insanity Puppy meme, plus some ones I made with the i-SODOG so I can pretend I’m actually on the cutting edge.

Totally Looks Like 11 of 16The i-SODOG, the latest in robotic dogs from Takara Tomy, was unveiled recently in Japan. It won't be available until 2013, and it's expected to cost the equivalent of $380 USD, which is a lot of money for something that will probably kill you in your sleep.
