"Meet the Parents." Check. But, "Meet the Pets?"

One expert says that's just as important when finding a mate.

Prospective lovers, and pet-lovers in general, will mingle at a pre-Valentine benefit at a Manhattan hotel tonight. Wendy Diamond, author of "It's A Dog's World," created "Yappy Hour" in 2001. The singles parties for people and dogs raise awareness for animal rescue.

No dog date? No worries. You can "rent" a canine escort for a donation.

Diamond also has tips for wooing a pet lover. For instance: Bring a squeaky toy along with the wine or flowers. Make eye contact with your date, but not with the pet. Some animals consider that a threat.
