Forget about tennis balls or generic pet toys -- why not get your dog a miniature 3-D-printed version of him or herself? That’s what Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg did.

For the sixth birthday of his Hungarian Sheepdog Beast, Zuckerberg -- with the help of some crafty Oculus staff members -- created a 3-D-printed mini replica of his furry friend.

Zuckerberg turned to his cuddly canine to help put the recently announced Oculus Medium software in the spotlight. With more than 4 million video views on Zuckerberg’s Facebook, Beast seemed to have done the trick.

So if you’ve ever wondered how 3-D printing works -- or better yet, how you can 3-D print a version of your pet, watch Zuckerberg and the Oculus staff make some magic. If beast was expecting a chewy bone toy -- maybe next birthday.
