I have a friend who has an adorable, unneutered 2-year-old male cocker spaniel. The dog is completely housebroken but is continually marking his territory in my house. My friend has begun to put doggie diapers on him when she takes him to anyone's house. I have found that there is no scientific proof that neutering a male dog does anything concerning his behavior. What can be done to make him stop? Actually there are several studies (University of California, Davis, ASPCA, and others)

Compiling an end-of-the-year list always makes me a little nervous. I worry I'll leave off an artist whose work was tight, whose effort deserves a mention. But for some reason (chiefly space limitations), I can't get everyone in. This year wasn't so hard, though. When thinking about the "best" CDs of the year, sales and critical buzz don't matter much to me. "Best" means that the artist stepped his game up and, in the process, set a higher standard within his genre. It's music that either added something fresh to current trends or bucked them altogether with a vibrant and memorable approach.

Don't Re-Zone For Wal-MartAfter reading the editorial titled "War of Words in Wheatfields" (Nov. 29), I feel obligated to reply.

I believe The Sun is wrong to support this proposal.The editorial stated that "the demand for such a retailer in Howard is undeniable.

Vedder rocked with Who idol TownshendA recent performance by Pete Townshend and Eddie Vedder at Chicago's House of Blues was a total rush! It was exciting to witness rock heroes from two generations working side by side to make music -- and help kids.This invitation-only event benefited Maryville Academy, a charity that helps physically, sexually and emotionally abused children.Pete kicked things off with a ripping version of his Who classic "Won't Get Fooled Again." He jabbed at his guitar with a force that would make any grunge guitarist green with envy.
