It's May, hooray! Peep five picks for furry friends from yours truly.
As my friend was checking out, I noticed the pooch made his way behind the counter to try his best to get something from a box underneath one of the registers. I snapped my fingers and said "No! Stop!" in a loud, firm voice which caught the dog's attention and he trotted off to sniff elsewhere. Finally, the owner walked out — without buying anything! — and the pooch dashed out after her, knocking his wagging tail into a couple passersby in the process.
While I didn't approach the human, I thought it was odd that I seemed to be the only one concerned about what his nosy nose was getting into? What would you do in this situation?

Let's start the week off on the right paw and play the Which Pet Is Cuter? game! The faceoff shows two pets side by side, and it's up to you to click on the one you think is the cutest. Each time you select the pet with the higher "cuteness" score — based on our audience's votes, we don't have a secret cute meter — your score adds up! Need I mention, every time you play you're eligible to win big? We'll be giving away a $500 grand prize every month — you must be logged in, and you'll be entered once each time you play. (Check out the official rules here.)
If you think your pet has a winning mug, you can add him to the site and he can be added to the game. Keep 'em coming because I love seeing new pets on our site!
If you're the type of person who fears floor grooves, treat your pet to these non-toxic Soft Claws Nail Caps for Dogs ($21) that attach with petsafe glue. While not dangerous, application could present a challenge on squirmy furballs.
Are you thinking sign me up to save the floor — if so, they come in seven sizes and different colors — or is this not something you'd like to bother with in the first place?
Dogs come when called, cats come when called (when they feel like it), but tortoises, too? Apparently so, so watch the video and see it to believe it.
