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.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - "Knowshon sucks. " LeSean McCoy put that post on Twitter when a media member lauded Knowshon Moreno's performance against the Cowboys on Oct. 6. Moreno caught wind of the Eagles running back's critique a few hours after the Broncos outlasted Dallas, 51-48, and responded, via Twitter: "Glad [McCoy] was watching our game tonight. Great team win. Let's keep rolling. #5-0 #LetHatersHate #ShotsWereFiredButNoOneGotHit. " Moreno was already in the midst of a comeback season, but he finished the final 11 games - rushing for 224 yards against the Patriots - with authority.

Caroline Doty, a Germantown Academy graduate and now a star basketball player at Connecticut, has treated fans with a trick shot video over the last few years. Last week, she was on the wrong side of trick-or-treating. Dressed as Lady GaGa for Halloween, Doty apparently drew complaints from other residents in her dorm, and they contacted campus police. Police said Doty was banging on doors as she made her way around the halls, and she was issued a citation at 2:15 a.m. The UConn athletic department said the matter was being handled internally.

IT WAS the Red Bull New York game, I believe. As I walked the concourse on the way to the press box, out of the corner of my eye, I saw Union forward Jack McInerney, sitting with a very attractive woman near the club suites — looking as if he was ready to kill someone. McInerney, 19, looked more disgruntled than anyone I'd ever seen wearing a tailored suit sitting in a private box alongside eye candy. McInerney acknowledges that gorgeous May afternoon ranked as one of the worst in his young pro career.

ALMOST BY definition, kickers are football's most obvious neurotics. They can stand on the sideline for long stretches, barely called upon and with uniforms pristine, then be told to rush out onto the field to attempt a game-deciding field goal with seconds remaining. With one swing of the leg, they're a hero or a goat, their successes or failures starkly evident to tens of thousands of spectators. Some kickers fold under that kind of pressure. Others thrive on it. But if you're Anthony Fera, just getting the opportunity to put foot to football this season is a privilege.

It's a good thing Vice President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. will live in a sprawling mansion and not a condo because his family is about to get bigger - again. Biden, a lifelong animal lover, says he will add a second dog when he moves to the Vice President's Residence in Washington next month. "We're going to have more than one puppy," he said in an interview that will air today on the ABC News show This Week With George Stephanopoulous (6ABC, 10:30 a.m.). Word that Biden will head to a shelter to adopt dog number two was cheered by animal-welfare advocates who were disappointed by his decision this month to buy a puppy from a breeder.

From: Gonzalez, John To: Ford, Bob; Sheridan, Phil Subject: Lito Just got back from Eagles practice. Lito mouthed off again. He was saying he can't understand what the problem is and why he's not starting, that the media should ask Andy what's up. So he's moaning and groaning, but the guy has a job and big money. I'm a believer in karma, and think Lito should have probably waited a couple of weeks before mouthing off. If he wants to know why he's not starting, opposing NFL receivers just might provide the answer.

Last season, Brodrick Bunkley watched as the Eagles struggled to contain the rushing attacks of many opponents. His vantage point was through the window of Andy Reid's doghouse. One reason the Eagles selected Bunkley in the first round of the 2006 draft was their belief that he could use his strength and quickness to stuff running backs. They also figured the 305-pound defensive tackle would pressure quarterbacks and reach a point where it often would require two blockers to handle him so the linebackers could freely go about their business.

Joe Paterno wanted to be hoisted on the linebacker's broad shoulders. Four years ago, this is how the Penn State coach pitched his vision to Dan Connor, the all-state Strath Haven linebacker: After winning a national championship, the freckle-faced Connor would carry the octogenarian JoePa off the field in triumph. "It was something neat to hear from Coach Paterno, that he wanted me to be the guy at Penn State," Connor said recently. "Going into my senior year, it's kind of like this is my chance now to fulfill what he was saying.

I was killing time during a layover at the Milan airport when my pacing brought me to a bookstore window. On the rack was the Italian translation of John Grogan's Marley and Me ( Io e Marley ). When I got back to my seat next to my wife, I had an idea. "It just hit me that there's a lot more money writing books about dogs than home improvement," I told her. "I just can't figure out how I could come up with something about Emmy that people would buy. " Emmy is our 71/2-year-old beagle.

Two reinforcements are on the way for a Temple football team that could use them after an 0-4 start. Tailback Tim Brown and offensive lineman Dwavon Battle, who were both sidelined by coach Al Golden for unspecified disciplinary reasons, will be in uniform when the Owls visit Vanderbilt (1-3) on Saturday. Brown, who entered the season as a starter, sat out two games. Battle has not played this season. When Temple suffered a 41-7 loss at Western Michigan last week, fullback Josh Bundy made his first appearance after also being reprimanded by Golden.
