Is Your Mutt the Cutest of Them All?

Published by PETA.

The tabloids are constantly filled with breathless speculation about who various celebs might be sleeping with. But we already know who a few lovely stars are taking to bed: their mutts!

Some celebrities who are hooked on rescued mutts include Sandra Bullock, Simon Cowell, Kristen Bell, and—hopefully—even the next president of the good ol’ U. S. of A. And according to ecorazzi, actor Kate Bosworth is so used to sharing her sheets with her mixed-breed rescue dog that any man who can’t deal with those sleeping arrangements will find himself bounced. Of course, mutts are so cute that it’s hard to resist a snuggle.

Even if you’re not a star—and so many of us aren’t these days—you can still get in on the mutt-loving action by entering your mixed-breed dog in PETA’s Cutest Mutt Alive contest. PETA is celebrating mutts because they are typically healthier and live longer than their purebred cousins who are pumped out by puppy mills and other breeders. Plus, every mutt is one of a kind!
