The World Cup kicks off today, so let's let the dogs out, too! Since the games run for 30 days, I've gathered up 30 dogs who can show the humans how it's done. Start kicking, I mean clicking, away now!

Felines need thiamine (aka vitamin B1), and tests of the product show an insufficient level, putting those dining cats at risk for a thiamine deficiency if this is their only food. In early stages, this illness consists of excessive salivation, loss of appetite, and vomiting. As it worsens, symptoms include wobbly gate, seizures, and a downward curving of the neck (called ventroflexion). While risky, if caught promptly, it can easily be reversed.
Cheetahs are obsessed . . . with Obsession? According to a recent study at the Bronx Zoo, big cats can't get enough of this Calvin Klein fragrance. Zookeepers tested 24 fragrances and found this most universally appealing, and it is now even used in the wild to track jaguars by attracting them towards a recording device with the sweeter smelling — and more ethical — alternative to the carcasses that poachers use.Relying on mostly donations and duty free steals to fuel the captive felines' habits, the concept made me think of our own domestic animals at home. My pooch likes to sniff my legs after I've put on a particular coconut lotion, but doesn't show any interest in my perfume (except to run away from anything spritzing). Do your furry friends have a nose for non-edible fragrances?
With embroidered letters and emblazoned with each country's flag, your pup looks like one of the team in matching colors! The first thing I looked for on this track jacket was a leash hole ('cause North's harness can make clothing options trickier) and was pleased to see that — and a fur guard! — on this zippy.
Since the 2010 World Cup kicks off tomorrow but runs for 30 days, there's still time to score a goal and pick up a track jacket ($39 and up) in sizes 8 inch to 24 inch for your lil furry scorekeepers. Dog 1, Treats 0 — Goooooooooooal!
