Britney named Worst Celebrity Dog Owner of 2006
Britney Spears' parenting skills are being called into question once again. This time she's been voted the world's worst celebrity dog owner in an online vote conducted by two dog magazines.
"Britney was the overwhelming choice," Hilary O'Hagan, editor of The New York Dog and The Hollywood Dog magazines, said in a statement picked up by the Associated Press.
"She once had three Chihuahuas … and never left home without at least one of them on her arm," O'Hagan said. "As soon as she met K-Fed and had kids they (the dogs) disappeared."
Paris Hilton placed second for "treating her dogs like accessories.”
Oprah Winfrey, who owns five dogs (not including Stedman), was voted this year's best celebrity dog owner. The talk-show host replaced 2005 winner Joss Stone, and beat out fellow dog owners Tori Spelling and Nicollette Sheridan.
