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:

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.

* 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 Your Puppy is Growing Up

9> One by one, your cats are disappearing.

8> He stops chasing the ball and begins licking his own.

7> Wants to paint his doghouse solid black.

6> When asked, "Who wants to go for a walk?" he just mutters "Aw,
    leave me alone!"

5> He'd rather go outside with no coat whatsoever than wear that
    cute little sweater Grandma knitted for him last Christmas.

4> Instead of wagging her tail, she just sits there with that 
    "cool" bored look.

3> The small doghouse you made for him last year? He now wears it 
    as a helmet.

2> Asks for the car keys and a longer leash.

        and the Number 1 Sign Your Puppy is Growing Up ...

1> You are once again dependent on your personality to pick up
   girls in the park.
