My 12-year-old German shepherd passed away three weeks ago, leaving me and my 7-year-old beagle, Chloe, very sad. Chloe has seemed very quiet and reserved since my other dog died, sleeping more than usual and not seeming interested in eating or walks like she normally is. Friends tell me to adopt another dog, but I'm not ready for that yet. Is there another way I can help Chloe bounce back? I'm very sorry for your loss — it's never easy. And pets experience loss just like we do. They understand and feel more than we give them credit for. They are pure emotional beings.    Chloe is grieving, depressed and feeling lonely.

Teddy the Pigskin Picking Pup might have started the season slow, but now he's on a serious roll. Will he be able to maintain it? He's had a week to relax with the bye week. Let's hope he made good use of the time to rest up and get his head straight. His record is 2-2. So this one is big. Don't forget -- there's a lot riding on this. If he ends the season with a winning record, the folks at Frosty Paws have promised to throw an ice cream party for the dogs at BARCS.

I want to thank Jill Rosen for her reporting on the dog park killing of Bear-Bear. I found out about this from a United Kingdom-based forum, http://www.husky-owners.com . Every member on this forum who has posted about Bear-Bear, membership is worldwide, is appalled by what took place. Many of us have contacted the police department involved, Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold, and others about this issue. Her reporting underscores the importance of a free press to ensure the rights of all are protected, especially in cases such as this.

My dog loves running in the yard, but I worry in the summer. What signs should I look for that he may be getting overheated, and what should I do if he exhibits them? Early signs of heat stroke include panting, bright pink gums, strong pulses, vomiting, diarrhea or depression. Playing outside in the summer, even in the shade and with access to water, puts dogs at risk for developing heat stroke. Owners must regulate their pups' exposure to heat in the spring (before they have acclimated to the higher temperatures)

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 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 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.

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.
