For most people, Dogs Playing Poker is their favorite piece of artwork of all time. It’s funny to think then that so few have actually ever seen Fido ante up for a couple of hands or throw down on the nickel slots. Well just because you haven’t seen it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

No, the secret, underground world of voluntary pet gambling is alive and kicking. At any given moment there are countless games going on everywhere from the back room at the dog groomer’s to that dark and dusty spot your cats like to hang out in under the couch. What did you think they were doing under there? Knitting you a sweater?

If a cat cat win the shell game, how hard can it be? Why don’t you come on over and try for yourself?

When it comes to poker, this Yorkshire Terrier knows how to put her money where her mouth is.

Lucky Touch Kitty knows when to press her luck on the slots.

Why do we get the feeling this card catching cat would rather be playing Go Fish!

Polly sure knows how to pick ‘em at roulette.

Hector can sniff out the good slots.
