If he could operate the remote himself, I have no doubt he would.
Go adopt somebody! Kindred spirits abound in your local animal shelter. There's somebody there who likes all the same stuff you do! Go find them and make both your lives better. If you're in the DC area, check out the Humane Rescue Alliance. That's where this guy came from back when the Washington Humane Society and the Washington Animal Rescue League were separate organizations. Now, they're one organization and they need your help to give people like my man Russell a great place to watch too much TV!
Do your part to encourage more adoptions and share this post!
