    Last Year's Guide

    Web sites for the die-hard dog lover or potential pooch owner are as numerous as canine breeds. Picks of the litter include:

    PUPPY FINDER
    http://www.puppyfinder.com
    The appeal here is obvious enough: Answer 10 lifestyle questions to find a suitable addition to your family. Puppy Finder is loaded with information to contemplate before and after becoming a dog owner: breed descriptions, methods for evaluating breeders and their puppies, and tips on health issues, training and nutrition.

    2,000 DOG NAMES
    http://www.petrix.com/dognames
    "The name you choose for your dog says as much about you as it does about your dog," the site says. Not to worry – choices abound here for such a ponderous task.

    THE BAD DOG CHRONICLES
    http://www.baddogs.com
    If the training tips you picked up at Puppy Finder or other sites fail, seek solace at Bad Dog, a forum for pictures of and stories about acts committed by "puppies only a mother could love." Of particular interest: Kody, the Labrador retriever who did $50,000 in damage to his owner's home.

    HAPPY PAWS PUBLISHING
    http://www.happypaws.com
    Happy Paws sells astrological readings for the owner who seeks a higher level of awareness about his pet's psyche. Or order a special letter to wish Fido happy birthday, best wishes for a speedy recovery, or congratulations on obedience school graduation or new motherhood.

    DOG-PLAY
    http://www.dog-play.com
    Dog-Play is an informal clearinghouse of information and links on dog sports: agility and flyball; animal-assisted therapy programs in which dogs and masters provide therapeutic benefits to patients at health-care facilities; games suitable for indoor play on rainy days; dog "camps" and so much more.
