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

* 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 Differences If Shakespeare Had Been a Dog

9> "All the world's a fire hydrant."

8> Hamlet's great soliloquy pauses at "Aye, there's the rub" for 20
    seconds of hind leg vibration.

7> Fewer soliloquies, more leg humping.

6> "Henry V" would never progress past the scene with the trunk
    full of tennis balls.

5> "The first thing we do, let's kill all the dogcatchers!"

4> "Alas, poor Yorick, I... HEY! Come back with that!"

3> Marc Antony may have come to bury Caesar, but you can bet
    somebody is going to dig him right back up.

2> "The Taming of the Shrew" now involves a choke collar and 
    rolled up newspaper.

    and the Number 1 Difference if Shakespeare Had Been a Dog...

1> "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. Let's roll in it!"
