When it comes to celebrity dog-parenting skills, Joss Stone is tops and Paris Hilton is the worst, according to an online poll of readers of two dog magazines.

Stone, who has a poodle named Dusty Springfield, volunteered for the North Shore Animal League America after seeing images of pets stranded in the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Wilma, said The New York Dog and The Hollywood Dog magazines, which conducted the poll.

The 18-year-old British singer also recorded a public service announcement seeking support for the homeless pets of the Gulf Coast.

Paris Hilton with doggy Hilton, a 24-year-old hotel heiress and star of "The Simple Life," was voted the world’s worst celebrity dog owner. (LOL)
