I don't know what's worse: the fact that someone is auctioning off something regurgitated by their pet, or the fact that someone already put a bid on it. One thing is for certain, though: the seller was not kidding when he billed this "The Worst Auction of All eBay."

According to the site, the dog's owner discovered a regurgitated dog toy belonging to his other dog. He is selling the toy (cleaned up, thankfully), along with photos of his dogs. Proceeds will go to buy a larger toy for his dog, as well trips to the veteranarian.

While his devotion to his pet is admirable, I really can't say anything more about this auction, except, EWWWWWW.

Related links: A large retailer of pet supplies (food, acquariums, books, etc.), they offer many items online and in store. This is a comprehensive site which offers just about everything one would need for their pet, is fairly well designed, although may be a little bit intimidating for those who are new to the 'net. Their store locator is a bit of a pain and is hard to read, especially if you're trying to find a location in the Lower Mainland area (the little dots that represent store locations are really little).

SPCA: Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BC branch): This site a bit of a headache to read and attempts to cram way too much information into a single page. The navigation bar certainly helps, although the webmaster could have stood to make the fonts a little bit bigger and more readable.
