We would like to thank everyone in the Catonsville community who helped us search for our missing dog over the Labor Day weekend. Our 13-year-old female shih tzu, Ming, escaped from our backyard before or during the storm that swept through on Saturday afternoon, while a friend was dog sitting. We returned home and frantically canvassed the neighborhood on Sunday and Monday, distributing hundreds of fliers to people at intersections. Friends and strangers alike helped by posting information on Facebook and missing pet websites.

At a glanceBronson Pinchot returns to TV on CBS tonight in a show that should prove harmless fun for kids and at least bearable for adults.Pinchot is "Meego" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13), an alien who crash-lands near a house where dad (Ed Begley Jr.) is desperately searching for a nanny to care for his three kids. Meego soon fills the bill, much to the delight of brothers Alex and Trip (Erik Von Detten and Jonathan Lipnicki), who love the fact that he can fly, change shape, replay time, talk to dogs, and probably 100 other things that we'll discover as the season progresses.

To Kitty Tracey, this is all perfectly normal. This being her Reisterstown home, where nearly every conceivable outdoor space is covered with some kind of holiday doodad. There's the full-sized Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus waving on the front lawn. A lighted white star sparkles in the night as reindeer dash skyward. And who can miss the glowing fireplace where another Claus couple gathers for warmth, the working train set, the huge "Happy Birthday Jesus" sign, the ... well, the everything?

Imagine letting perfect strangers order you around, mess with your head and demand that you do stupid, demeaning things just so they can laugh at you. After a while, even the most compliant souls would likely rebel. But not Rebecca Nagle, a sweet-faced, 21-year-old senior at the Maryland Institute College of Art, who's given new meaning to the phrase video on demand. If you go Rebecca Nagel's Fifteen Minutes starts Sunday and runs through April 11 at the Bunting Center, 1401 Mount Royal Ave. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday; noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
