Ah, celebs and dogs. It’s a recipe for love, companionship and of course, all kinds of crazy. In case you missed them, here’s a brief recap of some top stories from Canine Hollywood:
Almost single-handedly responsible for the dog-in-purse phenomenon that has swept the country like a bad line dance over the past few years, Ms. Hilton was recently voted the 2007 Worst Dog Owner in America by two leading pet publications. While I’m sure they meant to add “For anyone not named Vick” to the end of that category, there’s no denying that when you start “losing” your Chihuahuas and replacing them with cuter ones, you are not going to endear yourself to PETA.

Enough with the negative and weird. Joss Stone permanently planted herself in the good graces of dog owners everywhere after her tremendous efforts to save the abandoned pets left in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The teenage singing sensation recorded PSAs and spent countless hours volunteering for the North Shore Animal League – the organization charged with saving pets lost in the storm. Kudos!
