Tear, kisses, hugs, a few licks . . . and lots of puppy love. That's the way it went at Camden police headquarters yesterday when a 10-week-old pup who was in an auto that was carjacked earlier in the week was reunited with its owners. One of the owners, a 25-year-old South Jersey woman, suffered a crushed right foot Tuesday night in Delran when the assailant threw her out of the auto before driving off with the dog in the back seat. Though "banged up pretty bad," the woman's only concerns were of "Summer," the Labrador retriever she and her husband bought two weeks ago. But those concerns were put to rest yesterday morning when a woman, who saw the carjacking story on television, phoned Camden police and said she had the dog and asked police to meet her in East Camden.

Nigel Rhodes, the blind Canadian arrested in Philadelphia eight days ago on drug trafficking charges, won't be reunited any time soon with his guide dog, Toby, a sad-eyed black Labrador retriever. Rhodes, 41, of Toronto, a short, frail, blind diabetic with one functioning transplanted kidney, has been in local jails and a hospital since his arrest June 20. Yesterday, U.S. Magistrate M. Faith Angell, in her first week on the bench, expressed sympathy for Rhodes' condition but refused to release him on bail and ordered him transported to a federal prison with a medical facility.

The dog news is unsettling. Factionalism has broken out in the Labrador retriever family, with devotees of the shorter-legged members of the breed challenging the American Kennel Club's decision to recalibrate championship standards in favor of long-legged hounds. The protesters say that the change rules them out of lucrative show competition. In response, they've filed a class-action suit. Meanwhile, the Justice Department is looking into the antitrust angle - ironic, since the Lab is the most trusting and trustworthy of dogs.

An older black Labrador mix - found tied to a rock in a Bucks County creek - has captured hearts of animal lovers as police try to find who left her to drown in a rising tide. Wyatt Erb first spotted the dog late Saturday afternoon while on a walk with his wife Diana on Inner Road in Bristol Township. The dog appeared to be calmly laying by the edge of Neshaminy Creek, staring across the water as if lost in thought. But, when the couple passed again, the dog still hadn't budged.

Dear Amy: I work in a private therapy practice with wonderful people. It's my dream job. The only problem is one partner insists on bringing her two dogs to the office. At the beginning, I thought the dogs were cute, as they roamed the office and greeted clients. Then I realized she was making our secretaries responsible for them as they roamed around. Though many of our clients love the dogs, last year one of the dogs began viciously barking at our clients, especially children.

LIKE THEIR owners, pets are facing an obesity epidemic. According to the latest research, more than 50 percent of American pets are overweight or obese. Fat cats and pudgy pooches are no laughing matter, because overweight pets face the same health problems overweight people do. Being overweight or obese shortens your pet's life span and puts it at increased risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, kidney and liver disease. When it comes to lifestyle habits, our pets do as we do. That's right.

Hercules was barely a dog anymore, confined and forgotten in a Gloucester County basement like a box of dusty, old toys. Meanwhile, upstairs, Roxanne Notaro's chocolate Lab "Little" had food, warmth, and love. Officials with the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals say it's a miracle Hercules, an American bulldog, is alive after police officers found him locked in a small crate, covered in feces, urine and fleas in the basement of Notaro's home on Vassar Road in the Wenonah last week.

For Dan Dye, it all boils down to three dogs, two guys, and one unique mission. The players: Sarah Jean the Biscuit Queen (a black Labrador mix), Gracie Marie (a.k.a. Grace Dane the Great Dane), and Dottie Louise (a dalmatian); Dye and his business partner, Mark Beckloff; and the Three Dog Bakery, the business the two began 11 years ago with a 59-cent biscuit cutter and a desire to make food that their "anorexic" Gracie would eat. Three Dog, now a flourishing international bakery chain, "is so different from anything that's been produced for dogs in the history of mankind," Dye said.

Her merits. Angel is a blond Labrador. About her, as about all members of that dignified species, there clings, like banker's worsted, the aura of knowing what is best but being too well-bred to insist on it. So she will improve the tone of the household, as she has done of Christmas. "We shall soon be having Christmas at our throats," says a P.G. Wodehouse character who should be ashamed of himself. The routs and revels that erupt in connection with Christmas do take their toll on body and soul.

Ten-year-old Patrick Dignan says he can't go to many sleepovers and he frequently misses the best parts of his television shows, but he's not complaining. For 15 months, the Solebury youngster has been raising Bartley, the black Labrador retriever lying at his feet, chewing on a rawhide bone. The hard part, he says, his eyes misting over, will be giving up Bartley, who will soon leave for training as a Seeing Eye dog. Bartley is one of about 100 puppies cared for by members of 4-H Seeing Eye Puppy Clubs in Bucks and Montgomery Counties.

Two years ago, Charles Smith's beloved Great Dane, Buzz, came down with what his veterinarian thought was bloat, a digestive-tract disorder considered the second-leading canine killer after cancer. Turned out it was a just a scare - that time. But it made Smith uneasy. Concerned that his 150-pound dog was also at risk for other maladies prevalent among dogs of Buzz's size, Smith hit the Internet in search of pet insurance and signed up for a plan. A month later, Buzz suffered a gastric attack that required emergency surgery to remove his spleen.

For years, residents from Haddonfield have enjoyed allowing their dogs to run off-leash in Crows Woods, an activity that brings abundant pleasure to the dogs and their owners alike. Now a small group of politically connected people are trying to end the practice, magnifying a few negative incidents so they can recruit followers through misinformation, fear and emotion. As a lifelong resident of Haddonfield and a lover of Labrador retrievers, I'd like to offer a more balanced point of view.

Judging by the thumping of her tail, Snowball, the perky white Maltese, dug the rhythm of the Just Dogs Holiday Favorites CD. Even Cocoa, the miniature poodle, cocked her head. And Ralph, the Akita, barked right along with the instrumental, "Jingle Tails. " Armand "The Hound" Rabuttinio, who was named world's fastest dog trainer in the Guinness Book of World Records in 1984, had slipped in the CD to calm the dogs as they waited for their owners in the grooming area of the Just Dogs pet shop, owned by Rich "The Barker" Parker, in Boothwyn.

As police in Egypt approached a suspected terrorist safe house two years ago, they were startled when their American-trained bomb dog sat down at the front door - signaling that Rover had locked on to the scent of explosives. After going in a back entrance, the police team found the front door booby-trapped with 40 pounds of TNT. A cable from the Egyptians to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms was succinct: "Your dog saved 11 lives. " Under a nine-year-old program funded by the U.S. State Department to fight terrorism, the ATF is training a classic American pet - the Labrador retriever - to recognize and detect the chemical components used in weapons and explosives.
