Top 10 U.S. pet-friendly beaches

We are a cat family (something that I suspect will change after our purry ones are, ahem, no longer with us), so we don't take our pets to the beach when we go. However, I have been to several "dog beaches" around the state and love to watch the dog families having a great time. launched a few weeks ago, and it has a superb list of the top 10 pet-friendly beaches across the United States:

1. Del Mar Beach - San Diego, CA
2. Cape San Blas - FL
3. Fort DeSoto Beach - FL
4. Huntington Island - SC
5. Fort Funston State Park - CA
6. Dog Beach - San Diego, CA
7. Carlmel City Beach - CA
8. Pistol River State Scenic Viewpoint - OR
9. St. George Island - FL
10. Ft. Fisher State Recreation Area - NC

Way to represent, Florida! Three spots in 10 isn't bad. also has instructional how-to videos that show how to do tasks such as properly remove a tick, brush your pet's teeth, etc. It also launched a fun sweepstakes with a grand prize trip to Hollywood for the winner and his or her pet. Just submit a funny pet video through the site.
