If your pet could make a list of New Years Resolutions for 2013, what would be on their list? We humans create lengthy lists of self-improvements and grandiose goals we hope to accomplish in the new year….but what about our pets?  What goals might they have?

Based on feedback from my Daily Treat lab assistants Lulu Schmoo, Kiki and Zazou, here are the resolutions they’ve got on tap for 2013…some of which I just might have to add to my list! For even more fun New Years Resolutions for Pets, check out Animal Planet's 'official' pet resolutions!
