Vacation means warm beaches, breezy campgrounds, posh spas - a break from daily stress and a great way to unwind and leave our cares behind. Unless you have a pet. Fido or Fluffy, beloved as they are, can throw a wrench into the best-laid vacation plans. Few of us want to leave our pets in a traditional kennel's cages for days or weeks at a time, and traveling with them can be difficult, if not impossible. But that's changing as more people are taking pets with them or finding what's been deemed "luxury boarding," which turns the traditional kennel on its ear with accommodations that mimic home or even a fancy hotel for humans.

Nathan, the floppy- jowled , big-eared, giant Bloodhound from Maryland who arguably drew the loudest cheers at this year's Westminster Kennel Club show, almost never made it out to compete. “I thought about not even showing Nathan,” says his co-owner and handler Heather Helmer , who owns and operates Skipton Farms boarding kennel in Queenstown with husband, Zack. “But his other owner called and said she was coming and wanted to watch her dog, so I decided to show him.” Lucky for everyone involved: Nathan won the hound group at the show and came very close to taking Best in Show, where he was a clear audience favorite.

Jermaine Barnes, who has been on the job for four years, was treated at Maryland Shock Trauma Center for a gunshot wound to his hand and released. Mayor Sheila Dixon visited him while he was at the hospital. Police have not made any arrests, but the city's chief police spokesman, Anthony Guglielmi, said detectives "are trying to figure out if it was related to the course of his duty or if it was random gunfire."

After a couple of weeks of nonstop jocks-as-jerks news, I'd just about had it with athletes. Whether it was our own bong-inhaling Olympic swimmer, or the New York Yankees' 'roid-injecting A-Rod, I was ready to swear off following the fortunes of these physically gifted yet mentally suspect sportsmen. But then, just in the nick of time, an unlikely champion came along to make me believe again. Waddling rather than striding to victory Tuesday night, on four short legs instead of two long and lithe ones, he was stumpy rather than studly.

Baltimore County Council members rejected last night a measure that would have placed the region's toughest restrictions on pit bull owners, siding with dog owners who argued that singling out the breed would be unfair and likely ineffective. By a 6-1 vote, the council killed a proposal that would have required pit bull owners to keep their dogs in concrete-based kennels and post warning signs on their lawns. The author of the proposal, Councilman Vincent J. Gardina, was the only member to vote in favor of it. The proposal, like others across the country, met ardent criticism from dog owners and animal-rights groups, who said laws that single out breeds violate owners' rights and prove costly, while failing to prevent pit bull attacks.
