The food offerings told much of the story: Dog treats in bowls near the picture windows, and a buffet for humans along the back wall. The third annual "Best Friends Bash" last month at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine brought together dogs and kids with at least a couple of things in common: All of the kids and most of the dogs have had craniofacial surgery, and they all enjoy being around each other. "I like to meet people like us," Connor Loescher, 13, of Merchantville, said, glancing up from the handheld device he was using to Skype with a friend who couldn't be there in person.

Louis H. Guernsey Sr., 89, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, died of kidney failure Thursday, Dec. 6, at a care facility in Frederick, Montgomery County, where he had gone for rehabilitation after hospitalization. Dr. Guernsey came to Philadelphia in 1973 and settled in Wayne. Several years ago, he moved to Shannondell, a retirement community in Audubon, Montgomery County.

Kris Humphries scored a career-high 25 points and the New Jersey Nets avoided the worst 44-game start in NBA history with last night's 103-87 victory over the visiting Los Angeles Clippers. The Nets (4-40) were tied with the 1993-94 Dallas Mavericks (3-40) for the NBA's worst record after 43 games and all they had to do was lose another to secure another mark in this miserable season that opened with a league-record 18 straight losses. It didn't happen although the Nets managed to blow a 16-point first-half lead in the third quarter before their first win in 2010.

The story so far: The staff at a children's hospital has been helping the Rawls family deal with a premature birth caused by an accident, and another illness in the family. Three thoughts danced in Claire Kessler's mind as she readied the room for the family meeting with Ben and Jill Rawls: How could her pager already be full at 11 a.m.? Had she - like a classic overcompensating sap of a single parent - spent too much last night on those earrings for Jen's stocking? How late would Dr. Park be this time?
