Saints mania isn't just for people anymore. It's for dogs and cats too. Pets have started to jump on the Who Dat bandwagon.

At Pet Planet USA in Gonzales, black and gold gear for dogs and cats seems to march right off the shelves. Store owner Albert Husser says he sells anywhere from 300 to 400 worth of the team's pet paraphernalia a week. The top seller is a Saints jersey, but he has everything from collars and leashes to bandanas.

Husser says he sells LSU gear too, but right now demand for the New Orleans team wins out over the purple and gold.
