Baltimore Police officer Dan Waskiewicz responded to a call for a "vicious dog" last year and fell in love. The dog, a pit bull, had his tail between his legs and was being pelted by bottles thrown from nearby homes. Waskiewicz, who is stationed in Baltimore's Southern District, offered the dog water from his water bottle. "He was just scared," Waskiewicz told celebrity chef Rachael Ray last week. "Instead of calling the pound, we put him in the back of the patrol car and he fell asleep in my lap. I knew he was going to be mine.

Pizza, haircuts and dog food could help in a Crofton boy's struggle with leukemia. Several shops in the area have agreed to donate part of their profits Saturday to help pay medical bills of 6-year-old Ryan Tomoff. Ryan has fought the disease for three years and had nine months of seemingly good health until last month, when doctors found evidence of more cancerous cells. Ryan is expected to undergo chemotherapy treatments for more than a year at Georgetown University Hospital, with medical bills expected to run several thousand dollars more than the family's insurance will pay. To help, Vickie Bozick, owner of Tomorrow's Treasures sewing supplies store, enlisted the proprietors of other businesses in the shopping centers near Route 450 and Priest Bridge Road to take part in a benefit day for Ryan.

ANGELINA COUNTY, Texas -- I woke up this morning, went to the cupboard and the cupboard was bare. Eight hungry dogs were looking over my shoulder. I thought I heard something growling. I hoped it was their stomachs.My wife and I had been to the grocery store the day before. I tried my best to buy dog food, knowing we were running low. My mistake.She explained to me, as you would to a child, that dog food at the grocery store was 10 cents more a can than at the discount store. Better to wait and save money.

Contaminated dog food may be on Md. shelves Dog food contaminated with botulin may be on Maryland shelves, state agriculture authorities warned yesterday, asking dog owners to discard certain types of Natural Balance dog food. The food was made by Castleberry's Food Co. of Augusta, Ga., which has recalled about 90 products for humans and animals because of a risk of botulism, a rare but serious illness that can cause paralysis or death. The Maryland Department of Agriculture said yesterday that the dangerous dog foods possibly sold in Maryland are Natural Balance Eatables: Irish Stew with Beef; Chinese Take-Out with Sauce with Vegetables and Chicken; Southern-Style Dumplings with Gravy with Chicken; and Vegetables and Hobo Chili with Chicken Pasta.

The little girl had never seen a rodeo, but she loved animals in a greenhorn, eastern sort of way, so the family headed for town.So far, the West had been magnificent -- broad vistas, glorious mountains and critters galore: moose, buffalo, elk, even a few bears.The rodeo drew a big crowd. Dad was enjoying the calf-roping when he noticed that his 10-year-old had turned her back to the arena and folded her arms resolutely, her face as tight as the rope around a lassoed calf's neck.He saw the trouble immediately and tried to explain.

A NUMBER of years ago, a story burst upon the nationa press and quickly achieved the status of "national outrage." The item -- that a significant portion of America's elderly were so impecunious that they resorted to eating dog food on a regular basis to fulfill their dietary needs -- was exactly the sort of story about the privations of poverty that the national media love.But a few months after the dog food story appeared, the New York Times attempted to track down the source of the information.

We have moths flying from the kitchen and little worms on the walls. We threw out all the dry goods, and cleaned and sprayed the cabinets with insecticide. Do these moths get into fabric? Your visitors are Indian meal moths and their larvae, common pantry pests. They eat grain products, dried fruit, nuts, spices, even dried flower arrangements, and love birdseed and dog food. They do not feed on clothing. Empty your food storage areas, vacuum all cracks and crevices, and wash with soapy water.

Given how quickly dogs learn by food reward, how long does it take them to recognize the sound of Tiki's Playhouse doggie ice-cream truck? Probably with one sample, since the possibilities include tantalizing banana, blueberry, molasses and peanut butter in various tasty combinations, plus fruit cups, soft biscuits, dental bones and nice cold water.  “They're actually pretty good!” says Kelvin Abrams, 42, owner of both the truck and Tiki's Playhouse Doggie Day Care in Glenelg, as he acknowledges giving the cool canine treats a try himself.

A woman who grew up rescuing lost critters has launched an effort to help pets and their owners survive financial crises together. Lynn Molnar is operating Thankful Paws, a food bank for pets, out of her White Marsh home. "The idea is to keep people and their pets together even in the most trying situations," she said. "Often in hard times, the pet is the cut that people have to make. " The seeds for the nonprofit organization sprung from the parade of stray cats, dogs and other assorted critters that found shelter in Molnar's childhood home, and from her mother, who nurtured a "spirit for animals" in her daughter.

The good news for Baltimore chef Jill Snyder was that she had much more screen time on Episode 2 of this season's Top Chef. The bad news was that she was eliminated. The judges found fault with not only her ostrich-egg quiche (looked like "dog food," tasted like "glue"), but her half-hearted defense at the judges' table, too. An earlier Quickfire Challenge involving hot dogs didn't go so well for her either, when she appeared to take an easy way out with the assignment by not "making" her own hot dog. Snyder's next step is uncertain - she has left Red Maple, where she was executive chef.

In the eyes of longtime Great Dane breeder Joseph Alluisi, it's obvious why dogs have come to be known as "man's best friend." "Dogs are just like humans," Alluisi, chairman of the Independence Cluster Dog Show, said. "I think they're smarter than us, to be truthful. They're very interesting. They're very loving, caring and affectionate." Dog breeders, dog owners and dog lovers alike will convene at the Howard County Fairgrounds in West Friendship this weekend for the Independence Cluster Dog Show.

Contaminated dog food kills 23 animals, sickens 18 more WASHINGTON -- Contaminated dog food that was sold in 23 states - including Maryland - killed nearly two dozen dogs and sickened 18 more, the Food and Drug Administration said yesterday. The deaths and illnesses sparked an FDA investigation into the pet food made by the Diamond Pet Food Co. at its Gaston, S.C., manufacturing plant. The FDA said that 23 animal deaths have been linked to the pet food. The company, based in Meta, Mo., issued a recall of 19 varieties of dog and cat food Dec. 21 because some of the pet food made at the Gaston facility was discovered to contain aflatoxin.

Paul F. Iams, 89, a self-taught animal nutritionist whose pet foods bearing his name are sold in 70 countries, died Oct. 26 in Chappaqua, N.Y., of complications from a broken hip. Mr. Iams started the Iams Food Co., now a division of Procter & Gamble, in 1946, having once worked as a dog food salesman during the Depression. Not even severe economic hardship, he learned, could deter pet owners from paying the price to feed their companions. Over the course of three decades, Iams introduced Iams Plus, one of the first meat-based, high-protein dog diets; Iams Chunks, designed for adult dogs; and Eukanuba, a high-end line made with fresh meat and named after an expression of the singer Hoagy Carmichael.
