Mary Lynn Pretl Dougherty, an animal lover who owned Kildee Kennels on the Eastern Shore, died of lung and pancreatic cancer Aug. 23 at her home near Centreville. She was 55. Born Mary Lynn Pretl in Baltimore and raised in Hamilton, she attended St. Dominic parochial school and the Institute of Notre Dame, where she was a 1970 graduate. Family members said her free spirit often clashed with the school's rules and regulations. They also said that her devotion to needy animals became apparent at an early age. She sheltered stray kittens and injured birds.

As any ex-con can tell you, it's no easy task to create a warm and cozy personal space in a place where steel doors clang shut all day and the scent of disinfectant wafts up from concrete floors. Homey ambience and maximum security don't easily mix. But the staff at the Maryland Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals didn't let that stop them from taking rows of sterile-looking kennels, filled with dozens of homeless dogs, and turning the space into a vacation-themed wonderland.

The door to Dogtopia opens, and in swaggers Buddy, a giant schnauzer, pulling his owner, Cathy Miller, behind him. "He's wagging his tail," said Miller, who lives in Dayton. "He knows where he is." Buddy will be spending the day at Dogtopia, running around with other dogs, climbing on gym equipment, taking a nap, and generally getting the kind of attention usually reserved for children in preschool and day care. "It's just so convenient," said Miller, who planned to be away from home most of the day. "He's only a year old, so I don't want to leave him alone in the house."

The whole thing began early one morning when I stumbled downstairs in search of a cup of coffee and discovered a new dog in the kitchen. The old dog was there, too. The old dog was staring at me as he usually does, sending concentrated thought waves that said: "You! Get me food!" or "How 'bout one of those beef-and-chicken treats, sport?" Now the new dog was staring at me, too and putting out the same vibe. "There's a new dog in the kitchen," I shouted to my wife. "You don't miss much," she shouted back.

Every dog has its day, the saying goes - and yesterday dozens of canines had theirs in Harford County, participating in the Northeastern Maryland Kennel Club's obedience match. The match was part of an annual two-day event that draws people from Maryland and neighboring states, said its chairwoman, Linda Billings, a member of the Kennel Club's board. "This is like the testing ground for a real show," Billings said. "This gets the dog used to being in a ring setting, working with a judge."

A Uniontown dog kennel still has a few more hoops to jump through before getting approval to expand its business to handle up to 200 canines. Earlier this month, the Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission raised questions about Camp Yuppie Puppy's request to construct a kennel in the 3400 block of Uniontown Road, where the dog boarding and grooming business has operated since 1994. County officials told kennel co-owner William Quinn that he would need to provide more details about the project and account for discrepancies between plans he supplied to the commission recently and those presented in 2004 to the county Board of Zoning Appeals.

Ruth Ann Ford gently dabbed tears from Rock's eyes as the two waited to have their picture taken. "It's probably from stress," Ford said of Rock - short for Forever Rock Hudson, her 8-month-old papillon that had just won the Best of Winners ribbon for 6- to 9-month-old pups in the Toy Division at the Maryland Kennel Club All Breed Dog Show. "He's doing pretty cool," said Ford, of Osceola Mills, Pa., as she held the tiny white, brown and black puppy in the palms of her hands. Organizers estimated that about 1,000 people ventured out yesterday to the 5th Regiment Armory, where 1,681 dogs, in 142 breeds or varieties, were entered.
