I'm not religious. However, I love going to church. My 5-year-old daughter, Coco, is responsible for introducing me to the joys of organized religion. A year ago, I began feeling Coco should attend Sunday school. I figured the Sunday school teachers would know how to introduce religious concepts appropriately and would spare me from stammering through explanations. (That meant I'd only have to stumble through answers to questions about sex.) I could have killed time in a coffee shop while Coco was in Sunday school, but I thought that would be hypocritical.

Ethel Albujar took the bus in from Flushing with Coco, her two-year-old wire-haired fox terrier. Coco was heading straight for Broadway, the Big Time, the place where some quadruped would go in a dog and come out a star. Ethel Albujar dreamed that she and Coco would ride home in a limousine. "Coco usually gets her bath on Saturday. We gave her a bath (Monday). I was in such a rush I forgot to brush her hair this morning," said Ethel, 63.

In a Voorhees strip mall at the corner of Cooper and Kresson-Gibbsboro Roads, owners of Pet PT have been massaging injured dogs in heated pools and walking their wobbly legs on treadmills, bringing new life to aged and injured joints. The PT stands for physical therapy. The owners, two veterinarians and a human physical therapist now practicing on animals, estimate that they have put 50 dogs through therapy since opening the business in April. "I love this," said veterinarian Russell Howe-Smith as he was about to don a wet suit and wade with a Doberman into the facility's 7,000-gallon aqua-therapy pool.

The people tell jokes, never in a very loud voice or in the presence of strangers. The jokes rarely involve more than two subjects - Fidel Castro and Getting Out. Here are some . . . A guy walks into a cantina and tells the bartender, "I want a laugh. " "A laugh?" the bartender says, puzzled. "Take a jigger of Havana Club Gold and pour it into a glass," the patron says. The bartender pours a shot of rum into a glass. "Now, add some Tropicola, some ice and a squeeze of lime.

After gaining control of the township government last year for the first time in more than a decade, Voorhees Republicans are aiming to take the seat from the final Democrat on the Township Committee. Using much the same argument that helped them win last year, they contend that Democrats have allowed the municipality to grow haphazardly. "I feel that the growth has not had the degree of management necessary," said Armand "A.J. " Coco, the Republican candidate for the one seat up for election.

Saw 3D debuted as the weekend's No. 1 movie, but it still couldn't top sequel standards for the franchise. Although it generated $24.2 million - that's $10 million more than last year's Saw VI - the second, third, fourth, and fifth films in the series all topped $30 million over their opening weekends. Our theory: Nothing could be scarier than what we see on TV every day: political ads. Or . . . people are tired of Saw , for heaven's sake! It's a trust thing We know it's still early on a Monday, so we'll try to keep this latest addition to the Mel/Oksana marathon simple.

PASTOR WILLIE Singletary was headed to Grays Ferry yesterday, mulling the eulogy for his aunt who perished in the Market Street building collapse, when he heard on the radio that the veteran city employee who had inspected the property killed himself. "It's another tragedy, another loss," said Singletary, as he stood outside the City of Refuge church at 27th and Wharton streets, shaking his head. But yesterday, Singletary's focus was on his aunt, Juanita Harmon, a grandmother of nine, a woman of grace and grit, who lived every minute of her 75 years.

"RENOIR" aims to do for the great Auguste Renoir what "The Last Station" did for Leo Tolstoy. It's a lovely, painterly period piece that mimics the colors of Renoir's art, but one that never manages to find the warm, beating heart of the man. His paintings inspired passion in art galleries and museums, and in those who surrounded him and tended to his needs as he soldiered on, ravaged by old age, hell-bent on capturing more "beauty" at the expense of...

An Intimate Life By Lisa Chaney Viking. 464 pp $27.95 Reviewed by Elizabeth Wellington Women's wardrobes would be oh-so-cumbersome, not to mention boring, without the contributions of the great Parisian designer Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel. Chanel gave us the little black dress, gaudy layers of pearls, and the fitted tweed suit. Most important, she popularized predecessor Paul Poiret's early-1900s frocks that featured straighter silhouettes and shorter hemlines.

Courteney Cox and David Arquette haven't been bashful about playing out their divorce in the public eye. While most stars try to cut the cord with as little media attention as possible, Cox and Arquette are blabbing all over the airwaves about their marital strife. Usually it's the wacky (or the face-slappingly irritating) Arquette who is running his mouth, but now Cox is in on the action, too. The couple, who announced their separation in January, are on the talk-show circuit supporting "Scream 4," which hits theaters today.

'The most anticipated television event since television's last most anticipated event," screamed the TBS billboard, ever so ironically, not only in Times Square and a few million other places across the country, but throughout cyberspace. The object of the hoopla, Conan O'Brien, joked Tuesday that the best thing about the debut of his new show, Conan , might be that all that TBS promotion would be ending. Professional critics gave decidedly mixed reviews to the first-night festivities.
