This oversized plush stuffed animal sports an enormous leatherette nose and looks just like the famous fisheye-lens photographed Fidos from the phenomenally popular THE DOG Artlist Collection.

A cemetery may not seem like the greatest tourist attraction to some people, but the Cimetière des Chiens et Autres Animaux Domestiques in Paris is the largest pet cemetery in the world. It is not something out of a Stephen King novel either, but a charming combination of natural beauty and monuments honoring the dearly departed. It is a place where history resides, as well as a number of live cats.

The Pet Stairs Slope from Japan's Iris Plaza was designed to help pets safely navigate the oft-difficult journey from floor to sofa and back. What's that you say? You didn't know the vast chasm separating floor and sofa instills within your pet a sense of indescribable dread? Well then, you're a bad pet owner and you should feel bad!

Pet Sweep is the dream of many dog lovers -- a chance to get the pooch to earn its Snausages by taking on a household chore. You just strap these little dust mops to the dog's paws and it will dust your hardwood floors as it scampers about. All you need to do is open the box and . . . wait a minute . . . something isn't quite right here . . .

If you ever find yourself in a place called Cottonwood, Idaho, you have to check out this place -- the Dog Bark Park Inn. If you are a dog fanatic you may want to make the journey just to stay in this fabulously fun bed and breakfast built in the shape of a giant beagle. Oh, and about that fire hydrant nearby -- it's an outhouse. A touch of irony to go with the fun.

A trio of dogs have been specially trained to sniff out stowaway zebra
mussels to keep them from infesting new ponds, lakes and other waterways
in St. Paul, Minnesota. Take that, you invasive punks!

It’s
about time that someone had the right idea to create a dog shampoo that
is in every way tailored to what our canine pals need. If standard
soapy shampoos have your dog hating bath time, you’ll love Organic
Oscar’s line of all-natural shampoos!
