When Vinny Ragone heard the Dog Whisperer was going to be at a Baltimore pet store, and he could see him for free, he told his mother (who had never heard of Cesar Millan), "I've got to be there. " The eight-year-old Towson boy with wire-rimmed glasses nearly cried when, after waiting in line for hours, he finally saw in person the guy he's seen so many times on TV — the guy he hopes can get his puppy Molly to stop biting. "I think [Millan] impresses him a lot," said Vinny's mother, Mona Ragone.

Mounting legal costs have caused the owner of Just Puppies, a Laurel-based pet shop, to abandon a plan to open a store in Towson.

Howard County police are looking for a dognapper who swiped a purebred Pomeranian puppy from its cage in the back room of a pet store in The Mall in Columbia and then slipped out a nearby service entrance. The orange-and-white female puppy, which weighs two pounds and is valued at $1,600, was being medicated for hypoglycemia, a condition common in young so-called toy dogs because they demand a lot of sugar and are not yet capable of regulating it, according to petplace.com, an informational Web site.

BEHAVIORPet Shop Boys (EMI 94310)On the radio, what has made the Pet Shop Boys stand out is its sense of contrast -- for instance, the way Neil Tennant's hushed tenor floats over the brusque, mechanical beats of Chris Lowe's synthesizers. With "Behavior," however, the duo pushes beyond simple contrast and into a host of interesting gray areas. Sure, the old formula works fine (for proof, just crank up "So Hard"), but the best stuff here is far more ambitious, probing deep into the ambiguities of pop ecstasy.

It's all a misunderstanding, she tells him. The kids were bored at the eyeglass store, so she sent them over to the pet shop. It was just to look, she says.Wrong. It was love at first ferret.Teen-age girls and horses -- he's heard of that. Dogs. Cats. Even bunnies. Teen-age girls and ferrets -- this is new to him. Anyone and ferrets is new to him. He used to hear the folks on ''MASH'' call nasty old Frank Burns ''Ferret Face''; this was not a compliment.Times have changed. Ferrets are hot, and the girl wants one. At this particular minute, the girl wants a ferret more than she wants anything else in the world.

They're not saying "Doggone it" on Fleet Street anymore. Missing for several years, an offbeat Baltimore landmark that was the inspiration for a John Waters movie set is slowly returning to the red brick walls of the Luc his grooming and supply store in Highlandtown for nearly two decades.Soon, there will be a dozing dog. A Miss America dog. An aerobics dog. And if the years of auditioning hundreds of artists pays off, there may even be a Marilyn Monroe dog sashaying in the middle of Fleet Street.

DISCOGRAPHYPet Shop Boys (EMI 97097)Greatest-hits compilations are like snapshot albums, covering the highlights of a career but missing the stuff in-between. That's why so many best-ofs seem disappointing; heard out of context, even the best album tracks can sound like non sequiturs. Unless, of course, the songs never connected with anything in the first place, as has been the case with the Pet Shop Boys' output. This duo is truly a singles' act, and its best work -- from the campy calculation of "Opportunities (Let's Make Lots of Money)"

The name of the proposed pet shop on York Road in Towson is Just Puppies. Beyond that, things get a little complicated. Residents, including representatives of private shelters, want to block the store, part of a family-operated chain that includes a Laurel outlet, because it plans to stock up to 60 puppies at a time. The opponents say the store cannot provide such a high volume of dogs without resorting to "puppy mills" -- large commercial breeders that produce dogs more prone to disease and temperament problems.
