A teacup poodle was euthanized after she was attacked in Owings Mills by a dog identified as a pit bull, a Baltimore County police spokeswoman said. The poodle, named Chloe, was on a leash, walking with her owner, in the 8000 block of Greenspring Valley Road when she was bitten by another dog named Max, said police spokeswoman Cathy Batton. The poodle's owner was bitten when she tried to break the two dogs apart, Batton said. She said the poodle's owner described the dog that attacked them as black lab pit bull mix. After the attack, the poodle's owner told police her dog had to be euthanized at an animal hospital due to injuries from that attack, Batton said.

If you saw a disheveled, clearly despondent 66-year-old man hitchhiking, would you pick him up? Would you pick him up if you realized he was John Waters? Two springs ago, Baltimore's most unrepentant degenerate set out on a mission of discovery. Beginning on Charles Street, not far from his home, Waters would hitchhike all the way to his San Francisco condo, following Interstate 70 most of way. There would be little in the way of advance planning; he'd be relying totally on his thumb and the kindness of strangers.

A WHITE STANDARD poodle, Ch. Whisperwind on a Carousel, better known as Peter, stood alone in the center of a green-matted ring in Madison Square Garden in New York last night as the supreme winner of the 115th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.From an entry of 2,500 dogs, the big white dog owned by Joan and Frederick Hartsock of Potomac, Md., emerged to restore the best-in-show award to a breed that hadn't triumphed here since 1973. The rest of this year's entrants had fallen somewhere along the line during two days and two nights of the sharpest canine competition the country affords.

It's not every day a giant pink poodle assists with a marriage proposal. On May 4, Bob Keefer, 38, proposed to his girlfriend of two years, Erin Alexander, 30, at the 15th annual Kinetic Sculpture Race. Unbeknownst to Alexander, Keefer arranged with the American Visionary Art Museum to have Fifi, the museum's famous fluffy poodle, deliver the engagement ring, which was designed with one of Erin's great-grandmother's diamonds. Once Fifi delivered the special package, Keefer took off his shirt to reveal a tuxedo shirt underneath and proposed to Alexander in the middle of the mud pit. "I was completely shocked," says Alexander.

Maj. William Davis, commander of the Southeastern Police District, told the regular monthly community meeting at the precinct on Monday night that the department has issued 10 citations for having an unleashed dog in the park since Nov. 18, when the two male pit bulls attacked the standard poodle as he was getting out of a car with his owner, Joanne Dolgow.

Janice Tippett turns her injured tiny toy poodle several times a day because the dog cannot yet move properly on her own. Following a veterinarian's orders, Tippett stretches the dog's limbs to keep them limber, administering canine physical therapy. "I'm hoping to keep her spirit alive," Tippett, 37, said. "I hope that in time she'll be able to be walking and wagging her tail." The case of a poodle that was kicked and seriously injured by an Anne Arundel County jogger last week has stirred up a debate over when self-defense becomes animal cruelty, attracting the attention of animal rights, jogging and cycling groups.

A Columbia man who slapped his poodle so hard that it careened into a wall and died from the impact pleaded guilty to animal cruelty yesterday and was sentenced to 15 days in jail. The behavior of Kharl E. Bocala, 28, was "unacceptable" and likely had a lasting impact on his two children, who lost a pet as a result, said Howard District Judge Neil Edward Axel. He imposed a 90-day sentence with all but 15 days suspended and a year of probation. Bocala, of the 6400 block of Waveland Way, was home with his wife when he noticed a urine stain on the downstairs carpet, prosecutors said yesterday.

The dust hasn't even settled in your brain but you quickly realize that this wedding isn't going to plan itself. Before you can even consider the pretty little details, you must settle on a date.

Saturday is the day Fifi looks forward to every year. Fifi is the American Visionary Art Museum 's giant pink poodle-with-wheels, who once a year ventures outside to take part in what is clearly Baltimore's funkiest annual event, the Kinetic Sculpture Race . This year, some 36 land- and seaworthy vehicles, all strictly people-powered, will be taking part in the 15-mile race over land, sea, mud and sand. Like Fifi, some are designed to resemble animals; one of last year's crowd favorites was a hookah-smoking caterpillar.

New York is home to the Statue of Liberty, Coney Island, the Empire State Building. And, for the next month at least, the city will adopt a massively fluffy Baltimore-bred pink poodle named Fifi and a 10-foot-tall statue of Divine. Some 50 pieces from Baltimore's American Visionary Art Museum, a repository for the work of self-trained artists guided by their own unique and often impossible-to-define visions, will be gazing out from famed retailer Bergdorf Goodman's Fifth Avenue display windows for the next month.

President-elect Barack Obama has promised change. He has also promised his daughters a puppy. With the right dog, he can make good on both. From Thomas Jefferson's briards to George W. Bush's Scottish terriers, the White House doghouse has been stuffed with austere purebreds. The 44th president appears destined for a different kind of dog. Perhaps he'll choose one from a shelter, where there are "mutts like me," he said yesterday at his first news conference, addressing both the weighty family dog issue and the economic crisis.

After the management of Forest Hills Apartments called police about a foul odor coming from the first block of Melrob Court, officers went door to door on Friday and became suspicious when no one answered the door of an obviously occupied apartment, police said. Police broke in and found a large amount of marijuana - some of it freshly cultivated - and marijuana paraphernalia in the open.
