Arduino VFD Dog Simulator

I recently got my hands on a little 144 x 16 px Vacuum Flourescent Display (VFD).

Since I've got spare time over the holidays, I thought I'd make an Arduino library for it. One thing led to another, and I ended up making a pooping, barking "dog simulator" (starring my real life pooch "Sunny").

Noritake Itron provide their own library, but I wanted to make a less bloated one.
