Bentley (Short Haired Chihuahua)Bentley is a 4 month old short haired Chihuahua. I've never had my own dog and my husband surprised me with my puppy for Mother's Day. He's my little handsome man. He likes to play with his best friend, my husband's kitten! He is the sweetest dog. We just had 6 kittens and he goes in the closet and lays with all of them and cleans them one by one. When he hears them crying, he flies into the closet to check on them! It's the sweetest thing.

Cat Wetting on Clothes?Why does my female cat keep wetting on any item of clothing that is on the floor? My cats are very good about using the littler box, but lately Maggie (who I caught in the act, so now we know the culprit) wets on any item of clothing that is left on the floor.

Cleaning Jewelry Setting?I have a pair of gorgeous cubic zirconia earrings, costume jewelry they are, though. There is one band of "diamonds" across the centers of the earrings, and a few of the settings behind the stones are tarnished. If I pry out the stones, I won't be able to set them back in, and it would be too costly to have them done professionally for only costume jewelry. Does anyone know how to get the tarnish out without removing the stones from the earrings? They are goldtone.
