Those aren't sticks, check out Antlerz ($19-$49), actual antlers shed naturally by actual deer. Outdoorsy company, Orvis, collects, cuts and cleans these real horns before packaging into a nonsplintering, eco-tastic dog toy for pups that have seen enough of the rubber and the plush. Would you spring for such a thing or is it a tad too lifelike for your liking?
Howl-o-ween (or Halloween, if you prefer) is fast approaching, but that hasn't stopped people from getting an early start on the costume fun. Last weekend marked the Fifth Annual Times Square Dog Day Masquerade, and it packed a creatively cute punch in NYC. Check out these 11 outfits and you just may get inspired to get crafty yourself.
Get the Febreze freshness you love in an odor-eliminating candle! Showcased in glass jars, these fragrant candles contain a special Febreze Core that neutralizes odors while it burns. They're perfect in the kitchen to counteract cooking smells or anywhere you'd like to freshen the air with the scent of fresh fruit, rich vanilla dusted with cinnamon, a meadow doused in morning dew . . . try a Febreze candle at home today!
When reaching out to pet a cat, approach with fingers tucked under and fist together. Open hands with spread fingers can look a bit too much like unsheathed claws to some cats, and they could perceive your gentle petting desires to be a sign of aggression and lash out. Ouch. Move slowly — so you're not a moving target — and show the cat your hand first to sniff your scent before reaching in for a rub.

I don't know about you, but I absolutely love seeing all your cute pets as our Pet Pic of the Day slides. Since we moved this feature to a permanent place on the sidebar, your pets get more face time on the front page of the site. To see all the old pets we've featured, simply click today's picture and then you can scroll through our past honorees. Pretty special, huh?

Hola, Papi! The loveable, rescued star of the original movie is back on set to film Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2! I can only guess what trouble the tiny pups will nearly escape from (fingers and paws crossed) this time, but I'm willing to bet there still won't be any scrimping in the fashion department.As you may remember, even though the other main canine stars like Chloe and Delgado had many furry understudies, just one pooch — real name, Rusco — played Papi who found a new friend and forever home with one of the flick's trainers.
