How lucky can Lucky get? How lucky can Cassie and Scooter get? Lucky, the wayward alley kitten that found her way into my home and heart, has found her way back out again. Not out of my heart, of course - but out of my home. It didn't happen soon enough for my 6-year-old sibling cats Cassie and Scooter. They're just starting to recover. As it turned out, my hairdresser Cristy (the one with the fur-less Cyber Pet) fixed Lucky up with a new mom. She called last Saturday, two days after I told her the tearful tale of how I couldn't keep Lucky because she was terrorizing my cats.

WASHINGTON COUNTY andrews@herald-mail.com One day. That's all Tony Saia was allowed to have a dog while growing up in Philadelphia. He said his family got a beagle, but his mother didn't want it, so the dog had to leave after one day. As an adult, Saia is immersing himself in dogs: Afghan hounds. He breeds them and shows them. Last week, one of his dogs, Sprinkles, had her day. She was named best in her breed at last week's Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City.

The second season is about to begin in high school basketball with two Washington County boys teams holding No. 1 seeds. Whether Williamsport and South Hagerstown can end the season as No. 1 in the state remains to be seen, but the Wildcats and Rebels start the path toward that goal as the Maryland State tournament begins Friday. Williamsport (19-3) is the top dog in the Class 1A West East Section and South Hagerstown (17-3) got the top spot in the 3A West. Both have first-round byes with their No. 1 seeds and will wait until Monday to play against first-round survivors.

For a pooch with a pedigree like Pearl's, the Mason-Dixon Kennel Club's All Breed Match on Saturday was a bit like the minor leagues for show dogs, an event to hone skills in preparation of the big leagues. "Her dad was the No. 1 English setter in the country last year," Nancy Tuthill of Sharpsburg said of Champion Reidwood Red Alert, judged the best of his breed at the Westminster Kennel Club in 2010. "Pearl is just starting out in her training," Tuthill said. Not far away was Mariah, a standard poodle getting her hair done by handler Logan Mazanec in preparation for her turn in the ring in the non-sporting dog group.

What a tough decision: Do you watch coverage of the Maryland primary election results or coverage of the Westminster dog show? Both are equally compelling in an uncompelling kind of way. I might even like to see the primary elections take a page out of the dog show. Put Hillary Clinton on a leash and run her in a big circle in front of the crowd. Look at her teeth. Inspect her confirmation. We'd get about the same amount of information that way. In all, it was a Very Bad Day for Hillary and Washington County Board of Education candidate Tom Janus.

andrews@herald-mail.com Outside vendors with large menus need not apply. The C&O Canal Days governing board set a new ground rule this year that bars out-of-town food vendors from selling at the annual Williamsport festival - unless they limit their menus. Elissa Slayman, the festival's chairwoman, said the number of food vendors increased last year from 10 to about 14, causing more competition and less profit for each group. To protect the Williamsport-based vendors, the festival board voted this year to turn away outside groups - unless they sell one unique item and nothing more.

Since bullying in the schools has been in the news so much lately, I decided to write about my own experiences with it. Unfortunately, I know firsthand what it's like to be bullied as a kid. I guess I was an easy target. I was a small, quiet bookworm who wore thick eyeglasses and hand-me-down clothes. I was simply a little pacifist who liked to be left alone to read Nancy Drew books and talk to cats. I was called "Four Eyes" because of my eyeglasses. I understand that Theodore Roosevelt, one of history's most respected men, was called that same old lame name.

HAGERSTOWN - Eddie Dziuk began raising beagles 30 years ago, when he was a student at St. Maria Goretti High School. Now, he's co-owner of Uno - the beagle who recently was named Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, held Feb. 11-12 at New York's Madison Square Garden. Uno is the first beagle to win Best in Show honors. For people like Dziuk who show dogs, winning Best in Show at Westminster is "everybody's ultimate dream. I feel I worked at it a long, long time," Dziuk said in a telephone interview.

My life has changed since I left full-time employment at The Herald-Mail a year and a couple of months ago. I'm still here sometimes, still writing previews for Maryland Symphony Orchestra concerts. I continue to cover the MSO's Saturday evening performances, and now I get to write this column once a month. I have a few other writing projects, but I admit to working at a less than breakneck pace. And that's OK. I'm lucky to have the time to do other things. I spend more time with friends.

EMMAUS, Pa. - Marley did his best to live down to his reputation. The 97-pound Labrador retriever crashed through screen doors with alarming regularity. He went berserk during thunderstorms, destroying everything in his path. He stole food off the dinner table, slobbered incessantly, drank from the toilet bowl, and ate bath towels, sponges, socks, used tissues, plastic toys, furniture, speaker covers, paychecks, even an expensive gold necklace. He was incorrigible. And utterly lovable.
