I recently adopted a 4-year-old beagle who's very sweet and very high-strung. He has to be with me all the time and seems to be a nervous wreck much of the time, pacing and panting and barking at every little noise. We're new to each other, but do you have suggestions on ways I might get him to calm down a bit? Congrats on adopting a new pet!  It takes four to six weeks for dogs to get acclimated to their new family and surroundings.  However, he may be starting to show the signs of separation anxiety.

Eight days after arriving on the rock-strewn Martian plain of Chryse Planitia, Viking 1 sank its stainless steel claw scoop into the rust-tinted soil. It was 3:30 a.m. July 28, 1976. The first search for life on another world had begun. But far from settling the question of extraterrestrial life, the expedition showed just how difficult it is to answer. Viking's verdict: Mars is and always was dead. In the years since, however, scientists have questioned whether the spacecraft's instruments were sensitive enough.

Regal beagles Ron Fritz Baltimore Sun I think they should have some new rules at Westminster. Any dog who has its hair styled is out. It's not a real dog. Any dog who is shaved where no man or animal should be shaved is out. It's not a real dog. I imagine one of the Labs or bulldogs turning to the miniature poodle and saying, "Dude, you know they shaved your butt, right? How much do you get paid for allowing that?" But the best breed is the beagle.

Britain's Beagle 2 Mars lander remained silent for a third day yesterday, and scientists now think that their best hope for receiving a signal is the spacecraft's mother ship. Mars Express, Beagle 2's mother ship produced by the European Space Agency, entered orbit around the Red Planet on Christmas Eve, about the same time that Beagle was scheduled to land on the surface. Controllers must make a complicated series of maneuvers before it will be in the correct orbit to contact the lander.

The installation "EVENSTEVEN" at the BAUhouse tackles the subject of personal exploration -- encouraging viewers, according to a gallery statement, to ask the basic question, "Who am I?" While it may not work for all viewers on this level, it does succeed on others.A collaboration between Oscar Villegas and Rebecca Barten (who says the title represents a "balance" between forces), it occupies the entirety of the BAUhouse's two gallery spaces. At the entrance to the main space is a list of explorers of one kind or another, from Leif Erikson to Neil Armstrong.

WASHINGTON - They've sailed through searing solar flares and survived unexpected mechanical ticks. Now as an international fleet of robotic explorers closes on the Red Planet, the big question isn't what they'll find, but whether they'll land. Delivering a spacecraft safely to Earth's nearest planetary neighbor is an engineering nightmare: Two-thirds of the 34 probes dispatched to Mars since 1960 have gone belly up. "Some, including myself, call it the `death planet,'" declares Ed Weiler, NASA's associate administrator for space science.

My husband and I live in Columbia, and we traveled on a South American cruise for two weeks in December and fell in love with Ushuaia, Argentina. We felt the mystique of being at the "end of the world" and as far south as you can get before heading to Antarctica. Traveling the Beagle Channel to the Tierra del Fuego National Park provided us with the most amazing landscapes and took us past the "lighthouse at the end of the world." There are few places we have seen that are this beautiful and magical.

Unlike the calculated expressions of feeling common to its human masters, there is nothing disingenuous about the way a dog praises, celebrates, frets or mourns. In this poem, David Baker gives us just such an endearing mutt. "Mongrel Heart" Up the dog bounds to the window, baying like a basset his doleful, tearing sounds from the belly, as if mourning a dead king, and now he's howling like a beagle - yips, brays, gagging growls - and scratching the sill paintless, that's how much he's missed you, the two of you, both of you, mother and daughter, my wife and child.

When the word on the playground is that there's a birthday party in town, no one wants to hear the words "You're not invited." But kids of all ages are welcome at Port Discovery's Fifth Birthday Beagle Bash Saturday, where they can expect to rub elbows with all their favorite characters from the Peanuts gang, including Charlie Brown, Lucy and, of course, Snoopy. Named one of the top 10 children's museums by Child magazine in 2002, Port Discovery has made a name for itself as Baltimore's kid-powered museum.

YOU NEVER KNOW where Paul Higgins is going to turn up. Over the past year, he's been spotted coaching on Harundale Youth Sports athletic fields, calling out numbers for bingo at the Glen Burnie Carnival, offering insight at Marley Middle School Replacement Committee meetings and testifying before the Board of Education. At the latter, he shows up with a now-familiar trademark - a bottle of discolored water from the Marley Middle School water fountains. He often starts his testimony by asking board members (with whom he's now on a first-name basis)
