In June 2007, a woman named Ruby Pulley was attacked by two pit bulls in East Baltimore. The dogs were owned by a teenager who bred them for sale; neighbors thought he might fight them, though no one wanted to go on the record saying so. An animal control officer wisely confiscated his other dogs, including a puppy whose ears had been cropped down to nubs. This is all public record: The Sun covered the incident and the dog-fighting culture that directly led to it. We don't know what happened to the other dogs, but the puppy was taken in by Recycled Love and spent her first year of life with a devoted foster family.

Hello. My name is Tim. And I'm an "I Love Lucy"-holic. Think less of me, if you must. It won't bother me. I have no intention of ever being cured, even if it means lifelong membership in The Friends of the Friendless (a "Lucy" reference, of course). It all started when I was a little boy (sorry, another "Lucy" reference). I discovered the greatest sitcom ever made - please, "Seinfeld" fans, do not even try - and that was that. Thanks to omnipresent reruns on Channel 5 in Washington, I would catch the show after school, after dinner, whenever.

Way back in 1999, we adopted a chocolate lab named Molly. Only within about two minutes of meeting her, we knew she wasn't a Molly. This dog was serious and clingy and scared of her own shadow. So the day we adopted her, we changed her name to Mocha and she stayed Velcroed to me for the next 10 years. When Mocha died and the house and our hearts were too empty, we gave a shout to our friends at Lab Rescue, who sent us photos of a beautiful black puppy named Sadie who appeared dripping wet and running at full speed with a toy in her mouth that was twice the size of her head.

Sixty-three years ago this week - at 9 p.m. Oct. 15, 1951 - TV viewers got their first look at a situation comedy on CBS that, in short order, would become part of the country's cultural DNA. The focal point of the show was the redheaded title character, Lucy Ricardo (even in black and white, you could somehow tell the color of her hair); her Cuban-born husband, Ricky, leader of a dance band at a New York club; and their best friends, Fred and Ethel Mertz, landlords of the brownstone apartment building on the Upper East Side where they all laughed, loved, fought and schemed.

Former University of Maryland field hockey players Megan Fraser and Lucy Godfrey will play for the United States in the FIH Masters World Cup in Rotterdam, Netherlands, which begins next week. It's the first time the U.S. has entered teams in the Masters tournament since 1998. The 52-year-old Godfrey, originally from Bel Air, will be the goalie for the United States' over-50 team. There are also tournaments for the 40+, 45+, 55+, and 60+ age groups. β€œIt's [been] a whirlwind,” said Godfrey, who now lives Stewartstown, Pa. β€œI still have to pinch myself.” Godfrey has tried to stay as involved with field hockey as possible since playing at Maryland from 1981-83, both working as an official and at one point coaching an Olympic developmental team.

As a crime summit approaches and a survey finds public mistrust of police, the beat goes on for one Northern District officer who patrols the crime-prone Pen Lucy area. "It's the passion that I have," said Officer Edwin Albino, 37, of Edgewood, a nearly eight-year veteran of the Baltimore City Police Department and a Puerto Rico state police officer before that. "As soon as I wake up in the morning and put my uniform on, there is a sense of pride. I will work in any (police) district, because I'm representing Baltimore City police.
