My adored old Chihuahua passed over the rainbow bridge during the night. I prayed for a painless and peaceful passing and hope it was.  In the midst of my sadness and grief I would like to thank a few wonderful people. To the staff of Madonna Veterinary Clinic, thank you for your kindness, patience and indulgence when I was not at my best.  Dr. Knickman exemplifies a kind and competent veterinarian and his staff reflects those qualities. To Animal Emergency Hospital on Harford Road, I so appreciate your treatment of Little Man, your support of me, and your willingness to tolerate my endless questions, crying on your shoulder and for offering me realistic choices, options and never pushing me to make decisions I was not comfortable with.

Go ahead and pick the kind of dog you don't want to see walking toward you at the end of a leash on a busy sidewalk. A Rottweiler? A pit bull? A German shepherd being trailed by a neo-Nazi skinhead? Me, I'd take any one of those dogs -- even if it had rabies -- over the kind of dog I'm about to name. Because the kind of dog I'm about to name is the single, most unpredictable dog in the whole world. That's right, I'm talking about a Chihuahua. You don't see a lot of Chihuahuas anymore, but one was coming toward me the other evening on a sidewalk in Towson, being walked by a woman with a clipped haircut who resembled Florence Henderson.

Do not be fooled by his diminutive size, slobbering devotion to smoked sausage or the dainty sweaters he wears in winter. Papageorgio "Poppy" Bidle-Booth is a serious athlete. Today, with two regional victories under his, uh, collar, the 2-year-old Bay Ridge canine will attempt to blow away the competition today at the Petco Unleashed National Chihuahua Races in San Diego. But for Poppy, it's not about winning. "He doesn't even know he races," said Rob Booth, 33, who owns the dog with his girlfriend, Brande Bidle, 30. Rather what speeds the sand-colored pup along the 35-foot course is the sight of Bidle by the finish line and the tempting aroma wafting from the plate of smoked sausage she carries.

Let me begin by saying that I am a dog person, to the pointwhere I actually broke up with a woman over a dog once.This was back in 1971, when I was sharing the top half of a dingy house with a 135-pound St. Bernard named Holmes.My girlfriend at the time, the lovely R.C. (not her real initials), did not much care for Holmes.One problem was that if you stopped petting Holmes, she would . . . well, I suppose we ought to clear that up right away.Yes, Holmes was a she. I was not hung up on gender-specific names.

In the past, I've written unkind words about tiny dogs. I thoughtlessly said that all they're good for is being tied to long sticks to wash windows or being sprayed with Endust and shoved under beds to collect lint.But now I must apologize, and never again will I say such things.Not after hearing of the bold and amazing feat of a little Chihuahua named Rocky.Rocky lives with his owners in Key Largo, Fla., which is where he recently gained fame and admiration.It happened when he took a stroll around the neighborhood.

A New York City woman files a $500,000 lawsuit that claims her neighbor's yappy dogs are driving her nuts, and your first thought is: Wow, way to overreact. Then you find out the yappy dogs are Chihuahuas. Your next thought is: Oh, she should sue for way more than that. She should sue for 2 or 3 mil, easy. Maybe even more if she can prove lasting damage to her emotional well-being. That should be a piece of cake when you live above two Chihuahuas. Maybe you read about the plight of lawyer Paulette Taylor, 62, who lives in an apartment on the Upper West Side.

The director of a nonprofit animal shelter in Columbia has been cleared of a civil charge of animal cruelty after she was accused of neglect of a Chihuahua named Jay Jay. The Howard County Animal Matters Hearing Board released an opinion Thursday that dismissed the charge against Ellicott City resident Robin Deltuva, 36, the director of the Howard County Animal Welfare Society. "This is a matter in which the board believes that the evidence is evenly balanced on the issue of whether or not Robin Deltuva committed animal cruelty for neglecting a Chihuahua named Jay Jay at her facility," the board's opinion said.

It's hard to go wrong with a movie full of talking dogs. But the makers of Beverly Hills Chihuahua sure try. Let's get this out of the way first thing: Yeah, talking dogs are cute, and if cute is all you want from a movie, this one may constitute an overdose. But if you want anything else - cleverness, inventiveness, originality, genuine imagination - then I'm afraid you'll need to look elsewhere. It's as if the filmmakers decided the very idea of talking dogs was enough to sustain audiences for 91 minutes, so they didn't bother with anything else.

RECENTLY, IT WAS MY great honor to serve as a judge in the Key West Kritter Patrol Dog Show, which is considered one of the most prestigious dog shows held in the entire Key West area on that particular weekend.This is not one of those dog shows in which serious, competitive dog snobs enter professional dogs that can trace their lineage back 153 generations. The Key West show - it benefits the Kritter Patrol, which finds people to adopt stray dogs and cats - reflects the relaxed attitude of Key West, where the term "business attire" means "wearing some kind of clothing."
