Balenciaga has gone to the dogs. The lavish line recently debuted new, dog-friendly accessories that would make even the chicest pup (and his owner) swoon. The leashes and collars pack a stylish punch; coming in neon orange, green, and yellow.
We know some fashionable felines that are going to be very jealous — ahem, Fashion Kitty Luna. I love the look and am excited about the collars, but for $275-$295 a pop, my dapper dog won’t be sporting one for a while. Will you be picking up one for your pooch?
By self-conscious I don't mean your dog refusing to go outside after you've dressed him in a leprechaun costume for fear the neighborhood pups will make fun of him. The debate stems from a scientific test that's used on people and animals to determine if they are self-aware. The test includes marking the baby or animal and then seeing if he notices the marking in his reflection. Apparently, dogs don't pass. One dog enthusiast felt this was an unfair test for sniff-centric doggies, so he tried to prove that pups are self-aware with his own scent-based experiment, resulting in less-than-concrete findings. Until we know for sure, I'm curious, do you think your pet has a sense of self?

We oohed and aahed over Hugh Jackman's adorable addition to the family back in December. Now it's time to take another look at a (slightly more) grown-up Dali! The pup and his pop were out for a walk in NYC yesterday, and the little frenchie is proving that he's still got it. Click through for more cuteness!
Mark Zuckerberg recently adopted a Puli puppy, so be prepared for this to be 2011's It breed. But maybe you need to brush up on your Puli knowledge? Like for instance, it's not easy to groom the traditional Puli coat. This unique corded feature will develop on its own as dog hair grows out and clumps together, but it's essential that the dog is dried completely when wet to prevent the formation of mildew! See what else you know or don't know about these striking pups when you start this quiz!

Meet Gridley — a Tabby formerly from Danville, CA, and now a resident of San Francisco! He enjoys watching "Cat TV" from one of three main windows. He loves his cat tree, small mouse-shaped toys and hiding from the noise of the heater. Gridley was named for a city in California, but I have nicknamed him Linus because he sucks on his baby blanket.
