"Puppies don't poop or chew when asleep," says a Sharper Image ad for the Ultra Heart and Sound Soother, a noisemaking machine purported to send your pooch to dreamland on the double.

"Set the timer for Gurgling Brook and watch that little canine slip into one of those twitchy, rabbit-chasing slumbers," says the ad, which notes that the device also might help induce sleep for "stressed-out accountants" (just imagine those CPAs chasing bunnies), "hard-working babies" and "overwrought moms and dads."The Burltech (wood finish) version of the soother costs a mere $139.95 and can be set to simulate the following sounds: heartbeat, north woods, California coast, white noise, rain, ocean, brook, summer night, rain forest or tropical cruise (keep it down, Kathie Lee).
