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? Well, if this sounds like the perfect shot to fame for your furry friend, it's super easy to add him or her (or them!) to our Pet of the Day group in our brand-new community. Curious how to do so?

It's time to get clever! A picture is worth a thousand words, but those messages vary from person to person. Look at this brazen pup — can you imagine what that baby is thinking? 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.

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?
Whose dog doesn't need a push-up bra and thong? The answer may be yours . . . Seriously!
Even if you'd rather your pooch stay far away from your intimates (to save that emergency surgery), pick out plush panties and squeaky sexy bits complete with rope toy straps for the thong and bra straps. Sadly, the leopard printed Barktoria Secret Bra and matching Barktoria Secret Thong are sold separately so mix and match fun come at an individual price of $14 each — you buying in?

Another week's done, and here's another recap quiz — short and sweet so test your recall knowledge and start now!
It's a sad fact we know to be true, but pets in shelters are often overlooked. Not only are there preconceived notions about these animals, but the reality is that some people just don't check out the lonely furballs in these locations. In order to draw attention to their plight, the Shelter Pet Project created some clever PSAs. Don't worry, they're using humor to pull on your heartstrings.
