Q: Help! I often catch my dog eating trash -- or sometimes even dog excrement (his own or from other dogs). Why does he do this, and how can I stop this behavior? A: These behaviors are not uncommon. Like Oscar the Grouch, dogs love trash -- especially the smells wafting from bags, bins and containers. In your kitchen trash can, the discarded food we scrape off our dinner plates is actually fairly fresh. Dogs must be thinking we're crazy for throwing away perfectly good stuff.

It is a house stuck in time. A calendar hanging on the kitchen wall open to July 1978. Shoes and clothes, long out of style, spilling from plastic bags. And in one of four upstairs bedrooms: the skeletal remains of what could be a human body, on a grungy orange blanket, surrounded by adult magazines - one a Playboy, vintage 1982. Earl Harris, a contractor hired by the new owners to empty the two-story, white-shingle house on Mannasota Avenue in Northeast Baltimore, made the gruesome discovery yesterday.

The city is buying 33,000 trash cans - about one for every 10 rats in the city - and giving them to residents in four poor neighborhoods where the rodents are a big problem. The Board of Estimates approved $200,000 yesterday to buy the cans, which Rubbermaid is selling to the city at cost - $6 a can, about a quarter of their retail price. "This is a rat restaurant," Mayor Martin O'Malley said at a morning news conference as he uncovered a rusted metal can coming apart at the seams. "And this is a fortification against rats," he added, showing off one of the new cans: a 32-gallon plastic receptacle with a hinged lid and the Baltimore Believe logo on one side.
