"Dogs are very social creatures, and they need an exercising and a social outlet, and this is perfect," said Dr. Estelle Ward, a veterinarian. "This is like Starbucks for dogs." Kim Stallwood, president of the Canton Community Association, said members decided two years ago that they needed a park for dogs. "They provide a safe, fenced area for dogs to run off-leash and play with their own kind, and they provide an opportunity for neighbors to get to know each other," Stallwood said.

The revenge of Casper the cat has earned his owners $10,000.Now, a video of the cat's ferocious beating of a stuffed Doberman pinscher is fighting Sunday for a $100,000 grand prize from "America's Funniest Home Videos.""We used to have a Doberman that used to chase the cat, pounce on the cat and give the cat a hard time," said Casper's owner, Kathi Davis of Woodbine. "We'd give him [Casper] this stuffed Doberman, and he'd go crazy on it, attack it and take out his frustrations on it."The piece -- taped by Ms. Davis and her husband, Jim, in 1986 -- won its first round during the ABC-TV show that aired Sunday.

''She is the only puppy I've ever heard of who actually listens, and I believe she is the only one that has never chewed up anything in the house.
