Princess Love claims she and Ray J are making peace purely for the sake of their dogs -- but during TMZ Live ... it looked like there was more than co-parenting going on between the alleged exes.
Princess was talking to us about her sex tape, the break up with Ray J, and their dogs reuniting ... when suddenly Ray popped up on camera. In a robe! At 11 in the morning!!
Remember, Ray and Princess Love said he moved out recently after their split, so ... what's the deal?
Watch the clip and make the call for yourself -- but what went down makes us think they're either back together ... or never really broke up.

Ray J and Princess Love have declared a truce in their bitter breakup and custody battle -- all for the sake of their children puppies.
Princess Love tells TMZ their pet Maltese, Boogati, is now back at home ... reunited with their 3 other dogs. She says Ray J showed mercy because he thought Boogati was depressed.
As we reported ... Ray J took Boogati with him when he broke up with Princess Love and moved out. She claimed the other dogs were constantly crying -- especially Coco ... because she missed the Boog man.
Apparently the feelings were mutual, since we're told Boogati wasn't eating -- but Princess says all the pups are good now ... and claims she'll let Ray visit with them whenever he wants.

We know Shaquille O'Neal rolls big, and now his pet fish do too -- in a massive $50,000 aquarium he had custom built into a freakin' big rig truck! Yeah, tropical fish can be badass.
Shaq posted a pic of his giant self yesterday next to his new baby -- a 3,000 pound tank complete with the Superman logo (a Shaq fave). It's framed by the cab of a tractor trailer ... which would dwarf any other fish tank owner.
The hosts of the Animal Planet show "Tanked" -- Wayde King and Brett Raymer -- designed and built the saltwater pad which houses dozens of exotic species like Miniature Groupers, Clown Triggers, Mappa Puffers, and even Dragon Eels!
Wayde and Brett told us it was one of the most unique projects they've ever worked on -- especially because hey had to load in the Dragon Eels ... which they called "a bit aggressive."
Feeding time is gonna be interesting.
Dogs and Cats
Not At Risk

Dogs and cats are NOT capable of contracting Ebola ... and are NOT screened on flights to the U.S. from Africa because there's no evidence they can develop the disease ... TMZ has learned.
According to the Centers for Disease Control ... there is NO evidence dogs and cats can either develop or transmit Ebola ... therefore, there's no reason for airlines to either screen or quarantine them.
Several airlines tell us ... they don't control screening. It's determined by the CDC and various health departments.
Bentley, the dog owned by the Dallas nurse who contracted Ebola, has been quarantined by Dallas Animal Services ... and that set off a panic. Based on what we're told, the pooch is not at risk.

Heidi Fleiss turned her birds loose on her ex-girlfriend's house in a way that would have made Alfred Hitchcock gasp.
Heidi -- who was famously the Hollywood madam of choice for Charlie Sheen and a bunch of other celebs -- hooked up with Judy Bailey-Savage and lived with her at her home in Temecula, CA.
Judy claims Heidi's pet parrots destroyed the house by ripping wood and drywall from the walls and eating the doors and hinges of kitchen and bathroom cabinets. They also pooped like CRAZY.
And this is the best part ... Judy claims in legal docs, "I am unable to enter the residence to have a contractor give me an estimate because I am attacked by birds. I have been bitten on several occasions."
And to add insult to injury ... Judy claims she caught Heidi stealing plants from her medical marijuana garden in the middle of the night.
Judy scored a restraining order keeping Heidi 100 yards at bay for the next 2 years.
Problem is ... the restraining order is NOT for the birds.

Ex 'Dog Whisperer' Employee
I Was Trampled By a Rogue Llama
And It's Cesar's Fault
9/2/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Cesar Millan is under attack from a former employee who claims she was steamrolled by a runaway llama while on the job.
Adriana Barnes -- who was director of Cesar's dog rehab facility -- says the "Dog Whisperer" worked with many kinds of animals, but untrained employees let them run wild ... according to a lawsuit she recently filed in L.A. County.
Barnes claims the "Dog Whisperer" forced her to work 12-hour days with no lunch or bathroom breaks, and since most of the other employees were inexperienced ... the bulk of the work fell on her shoulders.
In the suit, she claims things got so bad that she was bitten 5-6 times by dogs and on one occasion she "was trampled by a llama."
According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Cesar fired her when she confronted him about the work conditions.
Barnes says in the suit ... the stress of getting canned caused her to overdose on anti-anxiety pills, landing her on life support for 3 days.
We've reached out to Cesar ... no word back yet.
