My 4-year-old Labrador retriever licks my pillow until it's soaked through. She doesn't do this to anything else in the house. Why might she be doing it and what can I do to discourage it? This could be due to your hair products. Many dogs like the taste of lotion we put on our skin and will lick the lotion off us or eat the bottle of lotion. It can be the same for our hair products. There are so many added scents and flavors to our hair products that they appeal to dogs. Dogs have a higher sense of smell than we do, but not more taste buds - if they like the smell of something, they will eat it. Because your dog is only going after the pillowcase you lay your head on, this is most likely the case.

Bargain of the weekRock and roll has never made any pretense of being a meritocracy, and as such, there's nothing new about mediocre bands becoming rich and famous while excellent acts languish in obscurity. Even so, it's hard not to think that if Lotion and Idaho had the audience each deserves, there'd be no way this show would fit into the Eight by Ten Club.Lotion is from New York and boasts a sound far more complicated and adventurous than the typical alternarock act; there are songs on the band's second album, "Nobody's Cool," that evoke the edgy abandon of R.E.M.

What is wrong with this picture? On Wednesday, there was a story on Slate, "When Dollar Stores Are Too Expensive. " In a nutshell, it said that while dollar stores showed strong first quarter profits, customers were bypassing discretionary items — which at these outlets means hand lotions and knickknacks — and sticking with necessities like toilet paper. The next day, we had a dispatch from the opposite end of the retail spectrum, with The New York Times reporting, "Even Marked Up, Luxury Goods Fly Off The Shelves.

My carefree days in the summer sun came to an abrupt end 20 years ago when I ventured out to a rocky beach in Massachusetts and spent an entire day under the rays with no shirt, no hat and no lotion. I thought I might get a little tan for my efforts. What I got, from the top of my forehead to the tips of my toes, was an ultraviolet overload that left my skin a painful, peeling, pink mess. Even my tongue went dry. Ever since, it's been SPF 30 sunscreen for me. And I'm not alone. Skin cancer fears have driven millions under the umbrellas and long ago turned suntan lotion into sunscreen lotion.

Q. How do you feel about self- tanning lotions and their safety? I am curious as to how they work.A. Sunless tanning lotions are safer than prolonged sun exposure. A tan results from ultraviolet damage to the skin, which produces melanin as a protective response.Chemical tanning products contain dihydroxyacetone, which attaches itself to an amino acid in skin and darkens the color. The resulting "tan" won't protect skin from sunburn, so use sunscreen.Write to the Graedons in care of The Sun, 501 N.

Please do not call Chris Oliver a metrosexual. Yes, the 33-year-old account manager wears boot-cut jeans, paid a silly amount of money at a high-end salon to find the perfect haircut and uses a dab of gooey product on his hair every morning. So, what of it? So, if that makes Oliver a metrosexual, then maybe NFL quarterback Chad Pennington and NASCAR driver Brian Vickers are, too. They are the latest models companies are using to put an increasingly manly face on hair gels, skin lotions and other personal grooming products.

When is a novelty no longer a novelty?Consider the case of the animated Rock Santa Collectible, last holiday season's sleeper, this year's emblem of X-mas excess.Before the seasonal hype began in earnest, the Santa quartet -- a cowboy Holly Jolly Santa, a Coca Cola-toting Santa and two traditional Santas, one black, one white, that groove to "Jingle Bell Rock" or "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" -- seemed the ideal gift item for your cynical brother-in-law. Plug Santa in, his bells jingle and belly jiggles in synergistic schmaltz and irony.
