TOP5 PETS HAS MOVED

Dreadful sorry about the intrusive Tripod ads. We have pulled up stakes and moved to an ad-free environment*.

Join us in our new space by closing the panel on the left then clicking this link:

http://coldwetnose.ws

If the unwanted sidebar window on the left opens up along with it, you can get rid of the offending portion by clicking the "x" in its upper right-hand corner. Click on the actual window on the left, not on the explanatory graphic below.

click on x to close Tripod window

 
* Ok, there are a few small ads at the bottom of the main page, BUT Top5 Pets directly benefits from them. We keep them unobtrusive.

           The Top 9 Signs You've Hired a Bad Dogwalker


 9> He always has to use the choke chain on himself.

 8> Rex's paws are starting to shred like a Firestone tire.

 7> Sometime during the actual walking process, Fifi the poodle 
    seems to have been switched with a rabid dingo.

 6> You think your dogwalker just got married?  Look again: those
    aren't strings of cans dangling from her car's bumper, those 
    are frayed leashes and collars!

 5> Your dog's feet are permanently stained purple from stomping 
    grapes all day.

 4> Keeps insisting that Fluffy start buying his Anabolic Formulas.

 3> Your dog comes back all liquored up.

 2> He claims that Rover slipped his collar in the park, but the 
    lobster bib and barbecue sauce stains suggest a different 
    story.


    and the Number 1 Sign You've Hired a Bad Dogwalker...


 1> Your spare key is found in the trash in a little baggie and 
    the deadbolt is smeared with poop.
