Maryland is experiencing a serious shortage of canine blood to help sick or injured dogs, and the Baltimore Humane Society and Blue Ridge Veterinary Blood Bank are asking for your help. Dogs who suffer from immune issues require multiple transfusions during their lives, blood bank officials say, and dogs hit by cars or in other accidents, puppies exposed to parvo virus, and other canines need blood. Hundreds of hospitals around the country rely on the blood bank's supplies, and it is the largest facility that relies solely on volunteer donors and ships nationally; others keep donor animals in cages.

As Fable, a 5-year-old Newfoundland, lies on a table at the Baltimore Humane Society in Reisterstown, she doesn't seem to notice the needle in her jugular vein. Instead, the pooch blissfully licks peanut butter from the hand of her owner, Lauren Schneider, while a handler cradles her with his whole body. Fable and her sister, Kenzie, are canine blood donors - and veterinarians and animal advocates say the world needs more of them. The dogs' blood was going to a major university and an emergency animal hospital in other states, where it's in high demand.

Everything that's good about "Daybreakers" bursts forth in the scene wherein a hematologist played by Ethan Hawke undertakes an experiment and injects a not-quite-FDA-approved synthetic liquid into the veins of a fellow vampire, under the watchful eye of a pharmaceutical magnate played by Sam Neill. From the scene's relative placement early in the story, and the familiarity of its premise, it's clear the operation will fail in the most spectacular way possible. The setup goes back a lot further than "Independence Day" or "The Thing" (either version)

Tonight's episode of "The Vampire Diaries"was all about Stefan proving he could be a better villain than Klaus. And, thankfully, he did because I am sick and tired of Klaus being the villain (though that won't go away for long). In fact, I am sick and tired of this entire story line wrapped around Klaus.   I can only hope that the introduction of Meredith (the hot doctor from last episode) as a founder (meaning she's in the know about vampires) and a psycho ex-girlfriend (the end of the episode shows her human ex-boyfriend with a stake in his heart)

While SARS dominated public attention during the past weeks, the discovery in March of a dead blue jay and two dead sparrows in Louisiana signaled the reawakening of another looming public health threat - West Nile virus. The mosquito-borne illness swept across 40 states last year, making more than 4,000 people seriously ill and killing 284. Four other states recorded the infection in animals but not in people. The virus that migrated to this country in 1999 also provided surprises last year for public health officials who discovered that the illness could be spread through blood transfusions, organ donation and breast-feeding, and from a pregnant woman to her unborn child.
