My doggies loathe aerosol spray! I don't know if it's sensitive to their nose or if it's the sound it makes when it's spraying but they will bark and jump at it and even bite it if they'd have the chance! — Pampire
Oh my God, Zena stole my dog stuffed toy (whom we've named Puppy) and she's exactly the same way! She treats it like a puppy....except when she gnaws on its nose! She is ENAMORED with that toy and we have no idea why! — Ellenora

If you were to stop and go through the quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies weighing down your purse or cluttering up your car cup holder, how much do you think you'd collect? $10? $25? Well, according to the experts at Coinstar, the average amount cashed in for eCertificates and/or gift cards at their coin kiosks is a whopping $56 — twice as much as people think they have. Talk about a nice, unexpected chunk of change as we head into the holiday season (especially since so many of us go over budget on holiday shopping!).
Our advice to you: make every coin count! Take a few minutes to grab all the spare change "jingle-belling" in your purses, pockets, car, and desk drawers, then hit your local Coinstar kiosk, where you can turn the contents of your coin jar into cash or no-fee eCertificates from popular brands, including Amazon, iTunes, Gap, and Starbucks. Click here to find the Coinstar kiosk closest to you.
Now that you know there might be more change lying around than you think, what would you do with those extra pennies this holiday?
- ARIES: March 21st - April 19th
Pay close attention to your pet's health and diet at the beginning of the week. Any abnormalities should be checked out with a professional if possible. You work on the other relationships in your life, so it shouldn't feel odd to work on your relationship with your pet. Thursday through Saturday is a good time to try to reconcile past wrongs with your pet. You might not be able to tell at first, but your effort definitely counts.
- TAURUS: April 20th - May 20th
There's boldness in the air on Monday, but you and your pet become a tad more timid on Tuesday and Wednesday, especially around new people. It's OK to take things slowly; startling your pet is a bad idea through Wednesday. Thursday through Saturday is a great time to initiate new projects. Just make sure everyone is on the same page before moving to the next step. On Sunday, you and your pet are more introverted than usual. Stick close to home!
- GEMINI: May 21st - June 21st
Power struggles between you and your animal pal are inevitable at the beginning of the week. Don't fight the small stuff between Monday and Wednesday; bigger battles may be ahead, and you'll need your energy! Your daily routine becomes less dull toward the end of the week, when an exciting event or new person enters you and your pet's lives. Moodiness on Sunday can ruin predetermined pet plans. Cancel if you must, but try to reschedule as soon as possible.

Offer your sayings or quotes for this funny photo in your comments below, and I'll do a roundup next week of some of my faves.
So. Many. Puppies. Seeing cute animals in a commercial definitely comes back to me when I'm faced with the product in a store. I'll be picking up a pack of Stride gum just to give kudos to the pups that posed in this hilarious video. See for yourself below!
