andrews@herald-mail.com For a local dog rescue group, a veterinary clinic's Web site is a basset asset. Pet Portal is "extremely" helpful, said Diane Morgan, the treasurer of Basset Rescue Of the Old Dominion, which is known as BROOD. Through Pet Portal, BROOD members in Pennsylvania or Virginia - anywhere, really - can check the medical records of basset hounds they've left at the Cumberland Valley Veterinary Clinic near Hagerstown for treatment. Pet Portals is one of a number of Internet sites that allow people to do business or errands from a home computer.

“Living in Chewsville has almost become a nightmare. At least once a week, and sometimes more often, we are awakened in the middle of the night by people arguing and cursing and probably drinking. It is really starting to grow old fast. Doesn't anyone have any respect for other people anymore? Most normal people are sleeping at night, unless they happen to be working. That certainly can't be the case here. We can hear this noise from about half a block away, so it makes you wonder how the people nearby can put up with it. If it continues, the law will become involved.

If Martians were ever going to invade the planet, I wish it could have been shortly after noon on Saturday at the Washington County ag center, when several dozen dogs and their owners were dressed up for the costume segment of the first Howlaween dog show. Something about seeing a Rottweiler named Nashville dressed as a black-eyed Susan would have given them pause. Heck, it gave me pause, and I'm not even a Martian, although I have been accused of thinking like one. I was attending the dog show because I had been asked to be one of four judges for the event.

Dogs love the outdoors To the editor: I'm writing in response to all the letters about the Society for the Prevention of Cruelity to Animals. First of all, dogs were once wild, free-ranging animals that survived by thier own devices. They didn't have heat, hot and cold running water, or electricity. They only had a fur coat and whatever shelter they could find. They had to find water where they could, and hunt for their food. I own two healthy basset hounds that constantly beg to be outside.

Stubborn. Pigheaded. Those were some of the descriptions people used Sunday, with smiles on their faces and love in their hearts, to describe their basset hounds. The love was returned Sunday as several of the short-legged, long-eared breed put up with wearing costumes, had their earspans measured, and had to turn around to show judges their back ends for the butt contest. At least one person put herself in the basset hounds' place by getting down on her hands and knees to participate in the pie-eating contest, alongside about eight basset hounds.

Buddy came in second in the howling contest Sunday at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center, but it's the basset hound's other skill that might lead hosts to padlock the fridge. He can open the refrigerator. “The first time he ever did it, he made himself a quesadilla,” said Kristin Fisher, 27, of Fairfax, Va. “He ate the tortilla shells, the lettuce, the sour cream, the chicken, the cheese.” Buddy was among dozens of basset hounds at Sunday's ramble hosted by Basset Rescue of Old Dominion, or BROOD.

WILLIAMSPORT - "I always worried I would begin to look like a basset hound," said Jane Loeffler, 57, of Washington, D.C. "They say people start to look like their dogs. " The dogs' sad, droopy, watery eyes, big noses, long, flopping ears and squat bodies are not features typically considered attractive or desirable. Yet, Loeffler and more than 200 others proved they are undaunted in their affections for their glum-looking pets at the Basset Ramble Saturday in Williamsport.

Had Knightsfollie Ladiesman wandered into Washington County on Saturday, his newfound Guinness crown might have been toppled. Knightsfollie Ladiesman, commonly known as Mr. Jeffries, is a champion basset hound from Southwick, England. He is named in the just-released 2004 Guinness Book of World Records as the dog with the longest ears - 11.5 inches. But Mr. Jeffries wouldn't have been top dog at Saturday's Fall Fun Show 2003 at the Washington County Agricultural Center near Sharpsburg.
