* 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.

                      NOTE FROM THE LIST VET:

    This is Take Your Pet to Work Week, so the contributors all
   brought their critters in to Top5 Pets Headquarters with them.
Result: fur and feathers EVERYWHERE and more cries of "NO! Bad!
      No bite!" than we've heard since our last staff meeting.

To regain a modicum of peace and to give us a chance to Wet-Vac
    the floors, we decided to put our pets to work writing this
                            week's list:

     up favorite tricks of Enron executive dogs.

8> He has a short attention span so he become bored with games of
     fetch after only a few hours.

7> I say "Hello," SHE says "HELLO!" I say "What a pretty bird,"
     SHE says "What a pretty bird!" It's like living in a damned
     echo chamber!

6> They neutered me too early. I'm four years old and I still
     sound like a freakin' kitten!

5> When she drinks too much what's the first thing in her path?
     My aquarium.

4> It LOOKS like a doggy bag, it SMELLS like a doggy bag, it even
     has "Doggy Bag" printed on it. But does the resident DOG ever
     get a crack at it?

3> That really funny banner tag last November? MINE!

2> For the last time: we are not "Black Labs." We are "Labs of

   and the Number 1 Pet Peeve of Top5 Pets Contributors' Pets...

1> Top5 contributor, huh? Well, *I* don't see anything funny about
     always having to eat the cheapest dry food on the market.
