Steve Jenkins' gunshots Wednesday night - police say he grazed two people, including a teenage girl - put him behind bars yesterday, but even before that he was really in the doghouse. That's where a Philadelphia police officer, Thomas Grieco, put the collar on Jenkins after a chase in the city's Hunting Park section. Police said the arrest ended an incident that began at 8:55 p.m. Wednesday when Jenkins, 22, quarreled with Bennett Moore, 25, of Germantown, at Eighth and Butler Streets, not far from Jenkins' home.

It's getting so crowded in Mike Keenan's doghouse that you have to take a number and wait. Scott Mellanby and Ilkka Sinisalo were allowed out last night and, coincidentally or not, both scored goals and played much better than they had been playing. In their place went Doug Crossman, a newcomer to such embarrassment, and Lindsay Carson, who has been sat out two of the last three games. Misery loves company, and around the Flyers there has been plenty of it. Ron Sutter, Peter Zezel and J.J. Daigneault also have been excluded from lineups for at least one game this season.

As upbeat as coach Rich Kotite sounded yesterday about the future of the Eagles' offense, he was alarmed at the struggles of punter Jeff Feagles. "I'm concerned with my punter," Kotite said. "He's had three shanks. " One of Feagles' shanked punts traveled only 17 yards Sunday, and gave Phoenix exceptionally good field position. Kotite said he might try out other kickers this week. WALKER'S RETURN. Sunday's game will mark Herschel Walker's first return to Texas Stadium since he was traded by the Dallas Cowboys to the Minnesota Vikings in 1989.

Make no bones about it. A discriminating canine that has chewed over the latest issue of Architectural Digest isn't going to settle for any old cookie-cutter-style doghouse. Dog owners had better head straight to the King of Prussia mall and see the latest housing options for the discerning animal, be it a water-loving Labrador retriever or a refined poodle that wouldn't dream of spending a night outdoors. It's all part of Arfitecture 2003, and it's for a doggone good cause.

Teenage assailants shot a young man while robbing him and his girlfriend outside Olney High School yesterday, and the search for suspects ended in a lot several blocks away where three of them were found crammed inside a doghouse. A fourth and final suspect was found hiding in high grass on the same weed- filled lot and captured. According to detectives and school officials, Kenyatta Bailey, 20, and his girlfriend, Tyshama Collier, 19, drove to the school yesterday so Collier could re-enroll.

Cris Carter cannot stand still. His slow, rolling walk takes him from sideline to sideline of the practice field. He stops and says something to the famous backup quarterback, Jim McMahon. He walks some more. He stops again, grabs the toe of his right cleat and bends his heel back to his butt. And walks some more. Finally, his turn comes to run an offensive play. He takes his position - wideout - near the far sideline, isolated from his teammates. Ben Brown, the rookie fourth-string quarterback, is directing the offense.

Usually, the trip from Joe Paterno's doghouse to the playing field can be long and arduous. Apparently, Penn State cornerback Rich Gardner was unaware of this fact while he stood along the Beaver Stadium sideline during the first quarter of Saturday's 49-17 win over Louisiana Tech, a team that throws the ball so frequently that air traffic control becomes necessary. Gardner was serving punishment for missing the bus that takes the Nittany Lions to their Friday night retreat, away from Happy Valley's distractions.

Whoever coined the phrase "It's a dog's life" probably had no idea of the kind of luxury afforded famous four-footed friends like Benji or, more lately, His Airness, Bud. On Sunday, Showtime plays the whole animal "star" situation for laughs when "Showtime Original Pictures for All Ages" presents "In the Doghouse," at 8 p.m. A genuinely funny film, "In the Doghouse" stars Matt Frewer (of "Max Headroom" fame) as Scott Wagner, an about-to-be-promoted, mid-level radio station executive who, instead, gets fired after failing to pick up the station's new owner at the airport.

A rough first part of December taught George Washington guard Gabe Crowley a valuable lesson. Complaining to referees earned Crowley, a 5-10, 160-pound senior, three technical fouls in the season's first week. He then was suspended by coach Calvin Jones. "It turned out to be two games. Another was canceled by snow," Crowley said. "Coach said that how hard I practiced would determine how quick I'd get back. I was determined, so I worked harder than ever. My first game back, I still felt like I was in the doghouse.

Ed Guion says his "homeless shelter" is a humane alternative to freezing to death on the street. The city says it's a "doghouse. " Guion, a Lancaster inventor and entrepreneur, has developed a wooden box with a door and window that he hopes to sell to cities with sizable homeless populations. The box would be portable and available to those homeless people who refuse to go to city shelters, he said. The boxes could be set up on sidewalks and removed come morning, said Guion.
