Dog lovers were in paradise Feb. 11 at the annual Cupids and Canines Adopt-A-Thon, held this year at Clipper's Canine Cafe, at Historic Savage Mill. Held every year around Valentine's Day and sponsored by Camp Bow Wow Columbia, part of a national chain of day- and overnight-care facilities for dogs, the event featured 36 adoptable dogs in a wide variety of breeds and sizes. It also attracted some 150 people - some of whom also brought their own dogs, according to Camp Bow Wow spokeswoman Denise Harris.

Aquamarine will separate the world into two camps: Fourteen-year-old girls who will love it, and everyone else, all of whom will realize this is a movie only 14-year-old girls can love. The story of two best friends who help a mermaid find true love, Aquamarine exhibits a welcome empathy for adolescent girls and an understanding of how they interact. It also understands - in ways that its target audience may not - that there's a difference between what is important (friendship, self-confidence, altruism)

In a world full of uncertainty, it's comforting to be surrounded by the certain pleasures of superb chamber music superbly played. That was the draw for a sizable crowd Thursday evening at the University of Maryland's Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. The concert was built around veteran cellist Janos Starker, whose solid, no-nonsense musicianship has earned him great respect for more than 50 years. He was joined on this occasion by violinist William Preucil, the sterling concertmaster of the Cleveland Orchestra and former leader of the Cleveland Quartet who happens to be Starker's son-in-law; and pianist Shigeo Neriki, longtime Starker collaborator.

Two strangers lock eyes across a crowded room. Suddenly, everyone around them starts to move in slow motion. The voices even somehow slow down to a murmur. It's as if the two lovers-to-be are suddenly stuck in their own version of time. Real life? Nah, just the movies. Movie love can be gooey and silly and totally over the top, confounding our expectations when we finally do lock eyes with that someone special across a crowded room, mall or gymnasium. But just like in real life, movie love can come in many forms.

Tough Love If the teen-age musicians in the Dunbar Jazz Ensemble know one thing, they know this: Show up at rehearsal - two hours a day in winter and six hours a day in summer - or you don't perform. OK, they also know this: Attend class at Dunbar Senior High every day or you don't perform. And this: Maintain a B average or you don't perform. And this: Dress appropriately or you don't perform. And this: Stay out of trouble or you don't perform. And this: Behave like a professional or you don't perform.

A new program that redistributes shelter animals has left the Humane Society of Baltimore County atypically flush with yipping, yapping and springing small dogs and puppies. This weekend, 31 pups arrived at the Reisterstown shelter from rural Tennessee. Because that shelter was overflowing with animals and was prepared to euthanize them, the Humane Society agreed to take in the dogs. According to Heather Hart, the Humane Society's animal center director, the swap is a new initiative aimed to bring dogs from crowded Southern shelters to the North, where they're more in demand.

Anyone who snickers at talk of a dog's undying and unquestioning love, steer way clear of Marley & Me. But for all those enlightened souls who know just what I'm talking about, who have experienced the redemptive joy of coming home from a hard day at work feeling like the saddest sad sack in the universe, only to be greeted by a dog who just knows you're the best thing in the world, then this is the movie you've been waiting for. It understands....

I WANT A PUPPY FOR CHRISTMAS. I know it is against all the rules of good sense, but I want a puppy with a red ribbon around his neck to jump out of a box and lick my face on Christmas morning. Animal welfare people hate Christmas because of people like me. We want a puppy on Christmas morning -- but not for the other 364 days of the year. Our puppies and kittens are usually neglected or abandoned or returned before Valentine's Day. But I swear, that wouldn't be me. If I had a puppy, I would love it. Because it would love me. That's what I am going for here.

"Pack of Two: The Intricate Bonds Between People and Dogs," by Caroline Knapp. Dial Press. 252 pages. $21.96. If you are not a dog person - or even an animal person - don't presume this book will leave you cold. Caroline Knapp's memoir and meditation on living with dogs, in particular with her dog Lucille, is a disturbingly intense and insightful journey into the shared terrain of human and beast. Those who inhabit that terrain, and those who wouldn't touch it with a 10-foot leash, will both find "Pack of Two" illuminating.

"The Crush" is one of those nasty items from the foul rag and bone shop of the human spirit, a cynical, violent exercise in cinematic nihilism and commercial avarice.It represents a particularly banal middle-aged fantasy: that some extremely hot jailbait is going to fall so psychotically in love with you that she literally turns violent in order to have you for herself. But of course her dementedness is really the mirror image of your perfection: She's Lolita with a baseball bat and an attitude problem because -- well, because you're so darn cool.
