While "The Artist" is expected to do well at the Feb. 26 Oscars, the film has some new hardware for the mantle courtesy of its four-legged cast member. Uggie won a Pawscar. The Jack Russell terrier took home the prize on Thursday (Feb. 9) for "Best Scene Stealer" at the competition put on by the American Humane Association. "Not only did Uggie steal the hearts of [the] audience, he also stole the hearts of his co-stars," the AHA says in a release. "Uggie even managed to continue stealing the spotlight when the camera person at the Golden Globes couldn't take the camera off him during the cast's acceptance speech as 'The Artist' won Best Film.

The dog really did eat it. Christine Dorr of Brooklyn Park unhappily discovered a corner piece of a $100 bill on the floor near her border collie's bed earlier this year. A bank envelope containing three bills — two $100 notes and one $50 — had fallen on the floor, and 12-year-old Sayde's guilt-ridden looks told the story. "The dog likes to eat paper," says Dorr, a researcher with a commercial real estate information company. All that remained were three pieces of the $100 bills.

Well, I finally switched my position on the Second Amendment, and it's all due to a renegade dirt bag cop who can't control himself ("Officer shoots, kills dog in Arundel," Aug. 4). I'm talking about the piece of garbage who killed a defenseless dog because he didn't like the way it played with other dogs. What a worthless, disgusting excuse for a human being. I hope that the recent rulings by the Supreme Court result in every person carrying a handgun wherever they go. If so, that worthless scumbag would have gotten the punishment he deserves -- to die in a hail of gunfire from decent, law-abiding citizens.

The item regarding the shooting of the Siberian husky in Severn ("Officer shoots, kills dog in Arundel," Aug. 4) should serve as a wake-up call for the residents. You have a gun-happy "federal officer" (what is he, FBI?) in your midst! He needs a course in patience, anger-management and re-training in the use of his weapon, in addition to tips on dog training; he should have unleashed his dog in a dog park. A leashed dog is not free and feels threatened by other dogs. If he was off-duty, why was he carrying his weapon?

I am getting ready to adopt my first dog from a shelter, but I don't like his name. What's the best way to teach him a new one and get him used to it? Changing a dog's name is perfectly acceptable and is a relatively easy thing to do when done correctly. Oftentimes, finding a name that rhymes or begins with the same sound will make the process a little easier and faster, but it's not a necessity. First, decide on the name and make sure everyone within your household agrees.

I am writing to commend Baltimore State's Attorney Gregg Bernstein and his staff for their outstanding work on the Phoenix dog burning case ("Twins acquitted in dog-burning case," April 12). Although The Snyder Foundation for Animals is an organization which advocates for the welfare of animals, we have never viewed this case as strictly an animal abuse issue. As so much contemporary research has conclusively demonstrated, the uncomfortable reality is that serious abuse of animals often escalates to later violence against people.

Spuds MacKenzie is dead. And now, inevitably, things will start to get ugly.You'll learn "the truth" about Spuds.The tabloids -- print and television, both -- will be all over this one, like fleas on a hound. People magazine will tell you that Spuds spent a few wonderful months with the late Raymond Burr and try to make it sound like something dirty.The sleazemeisters wait until the great ones are dead, and then they feed off them.It makes me ashamed when we're talking about what I think we can all agree was a great American dog. Tell me whose life wasn't made better by having known this pooch?

New Orleans. -- Sherri Wigdore, who works for Intelligent Electronics, has a dog with a computer chip in her neck. The dog's name is Zena. Sherri's dog Zena is a big dog, of the kind known as Bouvier de Flandres, and if that wasn't enough, nobody can remove the chip from Zena's neck because it's been injected there by a vet. A veterinarian, that is, not an ex-soldier.If Zena is lost somewhere like on a ski slope, let's say, whoever finds her can take her to an office where they scan her neck and retrieve all her vital data, like ''This is Zena, Sherri's dog, Internet address, azenol.

Jon Walker's friends were looking forward to watching him reunite with his beloved German shepherd, Zara, when he returns from a year-long Army deployment in Afghanistan later this month. But his dog bolted into a patch of woods while playing catch with a dogsitter in Crownsville last week and a non-stop effort to find her has proven fruitless, leaving them suspicious that there might be more to this than meets the eye. “Jon is devastated,” says his friend Heather Cappelli, who's spearheading the effort to find Zara.

Rockville police shot and killed a 120-pound Rottweiler-pit bull mix early Sunday after trying for hours to subdue the dog after it attacked its owner. Officers first tried using a Taser on the dog, named Jesus, but the dog ignored the shocks. Police say the dog's 38-year-old owner underwent surgery Saturday night for injuries including puncture wounds to his chest and thigh. Three children were in the house but weren't injured. Police were called to the home at 6:20 p.m. Saturday and spent hours trying to capture the animal.
