Putin 'wants sat-nav for pet dog'

Russian President Vladimir Putin wants a sat-nav dog collar to keep track of his pet labrador, according to the country's deputy prime minister.

"When can I get a system for my dog, Connie, so she can't go too far astray?" Mr Putin is said to have asked Deputy Prime Minister Sergey Ivanov.

Mr Ivanov was presenting the president with plans for launching three new navigation satellites.

He said the collars would be in the shops in Russia from July 2008....

Well, for a guy who is claimed to be the richest man in europe, with a $40bn+ fortune, paying for sat-nav for your pet wouldn't appear to be too much of a concern. :p

What would the receiver look like for such a device? Handheld GPS?

Only the American one. This the Russian version, which no doubt will be made available World Wide for a fraction of the cost we are currently paying for the American One!
