"[He's the] best costar I've ever had," Longoria says of her feline friend in a behind-the-scenes video. "He's really cute and cuddly and loving. Of course, having cat food in my hand helps."

Parsley-Infused Chew Toy Helps Freshen Bad Doggie Breath

Originally posted 05/20/2011 07:45AM

We can think of a lot of things we'd rather do than clean our dog's teeth: Wash the dishes, clean the car, mop the floor. We'd gladly tackle any of these chores before zeroing in on that smelly set of canines. Thankfully, there's a new interactive chew toy that can make the task a little less scary.

Precision Pet's new Spinz toy contains all-natural ingredients that promote good dental hygiene. Injection molded with parsley, the 100-percent edible toy helps freshen the stinkiest doggie breath. And the bone-shaped bumpy surface rotates, scraping and cleaning your pup's teeth as he plays, helping to prevent gum disease.

Ice cream for dogs: too indulgent, or a pet owner's saving grace? Perhaps a bit of both, but when you meet Schwan's Doggie Sundaes, you'll be glad that someone thought up this treat.

Schwan's Home Service delivers all manner of frozen foods to its customers, and its menu now includes something for the canine in the house. The Doggie Sundae ($4.97 for a pack of four cups) is a frozen treat that looks just like a human ice cream cup, but is actually a beef-flavored protein treat that's filled with vitamins and minerals.

Eddie Eats Out: Learn Where New York City Dogs Can Dine

Eddie Eats Out: Learn Where New York City Dogs Can Dine

Jennifer Sunshine loves bringing her rat terrier Eddie to dinner. But she'd often run into problems at New York City restaurants that didn't allow dogs. "We tried to find places that he could go eat with us, and we couldn't find anywhere," she tells PEOPLEPets.com.

Instead of leaving Eddie at home when she dined out – "He got very upset that he couldn't come with us," she shares – she and pal Ady Schneider decided to start a website dedicated to listing bars and eateries that were open to pets. Appropriately titled Eddie Eats Out, the site features restaurant reviews written from the pup's point of view, plus a blog about pet-related news and fashion.

What do you do when you finish a bag of dog treats? Do you save the crinkly plastic packet in your box of mementos?

We suspect that your answer is no, because most people discard treat packages when the snacks have been gobbled up.

Howie's Hearts offers an alternative to the toss-it monopoly – its treats are packaged in reusable containers that are gifts all on their own. The collection includes bone-shaped tins, mugs and lunch pails covered in pretty painted puppies, all of them perfect to keep for yourself or to present to someone else.

Originally posted 10/26/2010 07:45AM

Halloween might be an acceptable time for us humans to devour handfuls of sugary confections, but we definitely don't want our pets to get their paws on these goodies, since chocolate can be toxic for dogs.

So we trolled through Etsy and found a much healthier alternate -- Nicole Poch's pet-friendly Halloween treats.

As a professional chef, Mary Morabito knows what satisfies hungry customers. So it was easy to apply those same basic cooking principles to pets when she opened her Healthy Hound Bakery about five and a half years ago.

Born of her love for pup Audrey – who lost 6 lbs. in six weeks after switching from store-bought to home-baked treats – Morabito's online bakery offers fun twists on bagel bites, pizza slices and more. Customized birthday (and wedding!) cakes are super-popular, and holiday treats fly off the virtual shelves.
