Dogs romp at William S. Hart park, an off-leash facility for dogs and their owners, in West Hollywood, Calif., Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2010. This famously quirky city that formally recognizes pets as "companions" and their owners as "guardians" was set to adopt an ordinance Tuesday night, banning stores from retailing cats and dogs in a move aimed at curbing so-called puppy mills and kitty factories.

Officials acknowledge the new ordinance will have little bite - no pet stores in the city currently sell animals - but they're hoping it will have a lot of bark and other municipalities will follow suit.
