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.

For millions of years, crabs have been scuttling about the bottom of the world's oceans and bays, but few regions have embraced the mean-spirited, omnivorous crustacean with as much vigor as we have here in Maryland. When I moved here from the Midwest and soon after attended my first crab feast, I remember thinking, "What is wrong with these people?" Sitting in the hot sun for hours at a clip, smashing steamed crustaceans with a mallet and then sorting through razor-sharp bits of shell and crab entrails for a thimbleful of meat seemed more like some sort of torture than a good time.

I sleep on my side because it's most comfortable on my bad back. A friend suggested I sleep with a pillow between my knees. What would this do? We posed this question to Jennifer Kline, who is a physical therapist at Physiotherapy Associates in Lutherville. "The primary function of the pillow is to help maintain a neutral spine and pelvic alignment," says Kline. By keeping the top leg from pulling you into an unbalanced position, the pillow prevents stress on the back. If your top leg naturally stays where it is when you sleep, Kline says there's no need for the pillow.

What treasure would you save if a natural disaster struck?dyd The key to a lifetime of sound sleep, says one Atlanta attorney. "If there's a fire, what am I going in there for? I've thought about that," says Asim Raza. "Kids and wife. And then -- my pillow. If you're 35 and you've been sleeping on the same pillow for 31 years, you don't take that lightly." This isn't a joke to Raza, or to the many other adults who are deeply attached to the cushions that lull them to sleep each night. Before getting married, Raza told his fiancee, "My pillow is really important to me."

Q. I have 8-year-old and 4-year-old daughters who are as different as night and day. About a year ago, I separated from their father, then got divorced. He was a lousy father who never spent any time with them alone. The girls and I now live in a house by ourselves. Their father gets them Tuesday and Thursday for about two hours and Sunday from noon to 9 p.m. He has a live-in girlfriend but claims they are just friends. The 8-year-old is afraid to spend the night with Daddy and doesn't even like to go over there.

Pillow goes the distance Name: : TravelRest travel pillow What it is: : Unlike travel pillows that fit around the neck, with varying degrees of success, this inflatable model is more like a body pillow in the shape of a large, elongated comma. Its adjustable tether fits around your seat back to hold the pillow in place and provide support you might otherwise get from a wall or surprised fellow traveler. How it works: : Blow it up, easily done in seconds. Loosen the tether so there is plenty of line to loop around the back of your seat, then cinch it up with the locking clip.

Havre de Grace is not only rich in history and charm. It's also the place to find that rare accent piece for your home.

The three men forced their way into the Park Heights home earlier this month, looking for money and drugs. Encountering a man, a woman and their two children did not deter them, police say. The suspects gathered the family in the living room at gunpoint, at one point placing the barrel of a gun in the woman's mouth and then striking her in the head with the weapon. The family was then taken into the basement and told to lay on their stomachs. That's when police say 19-year-old Donte Gladden placed a pillow over the man's head and fired multiple shots, striking the victim in the head.

A Harford County high school student is asking his classmates for help in making life more comfortable for Marines serving in war zones. Pat Garrett, a senior at North Harford High School, and Charlie Dundon, a lance corporal who has been deployed in Afghanistan, were childhood friends in Virginia who keep up an e-mail correspondence. "I kept asking him if he needed anything, and finally he told me he would really like a pillow to sleep on," said Garrett. "He really helped me through a lot of stuff when I was a kid and I would really like to send him and other Marines a little piece of home."

The pilot and crew of US Airways Flight 1549 - the "Miracle on the Hudson" heroes - were making the media rounds last week, from 60 Minutes to Larry King Live to New York City, where Mayor Michael Bloomberg gave the pilot the keys to the city. They certainly deserve it. But while the crew has been in the spotlight, their employer has quietly added yet another new fee for their passengers. One we certainly don't deserve. Tomorrow, US Airways will begin charging fliers $7 for a pillow and blanket.

Wow, the year flew faster than a jetliner at 40,000 feet. For travelers, 2008 was a year when it was best to keep your seat belt buckled for most of the ride. Here's my take on some of the top travel stories of 2008. Fees, please. Air passengers got a rude awakening about midway through the year when airlines, feeling the financial pinch, decided to charge travelers for stuff that used to be free. Like checking our luggage. Or getting a pillow or blanket. Or a can of Coke. Suddenly, there was this "a la carte" pricing where the only thing included in your ticket price was the seat.

Injured last week in a football game, the trauma affected my Glen Burnie High defensive end in a truly horrifying manner.He had turned into his father."I just need another pillow," he said weakly. "I hate to bother you."Assuring him it was no trouble, I tossed a pillow with perhaps a bit too much energy."Ooomph," he gasped as the pillow whizzed past his ear.Mumbling an apology, I turned my attention to the debris throughout his room: TastyKake wrappers, empty Coke cans, 11 bowls of hardened Fruity Pebbles cereal.

In Leonardo da Vinci's famous painting, Mona Lisa gazes off into the distance, smiling faintly and, some say, mysteriously. But on the walls of a West Annapolis art supply store, Mona Lisa stands behind prison bars, sports a nose ring and hawks everything from eclairs to sushi. She grimaces, smokes a cigarette and grins to reveal a mouthful of oversized teeth. For two decades, customers and staff have brought renderings of that image to Art Things on Annapolis Street. More than 500 versions of her face decorate the walls and windows of the shop.
