Millions of family pets are killed in humane shelters each year. One reason is that people purchase an animal, then find that they can't control it, that it messes up the house or even seems vicious. This usually isn't the fault of the animal, which needs teaching and supervision. If you have just brought a puppy into your home or are contemplating such a move, a new videotape, Good Puppy, can be a valuable resource. Unlike most dog-training tapes, which concentrate on animals at least 6 months old, this one can be used when the dog is only 7 or 8 weeks old. Trainer Jeanne Carlson has a gentle yet authoritative manner that will give confidence to even the most inexperienced dog owner.

One afternoon last week, Tracy Scott and six of her co-workers looked out their office window at the Prudential Business Campus in Horsham. They were horrified. What they saw on the lawn outside their staid office March 1 was a man swinging a puppy around on a long red leash "like a helicopter. " Three men from Scott's group ran out to the lawn and grabbed the puppy - a 10-week-old, mixed-breed husky - from the man and took it back to work with them. Another employee called the police.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the person who wrapped a pit bull-mix puppy in duct tape and abandoned it in Kensington. The Pennsylvania SPCA said its officers responded to an anonymous tip Tuesday and found the dog in a lot next to Ascension of Our Lord Church and School on the 700 block of East Westmoreland Street. A necropsy determined that the animal had multiple health problems and suffered from a lack of medical care, the SPCA said. It was inconclusive as to whether the puppy was alive when it was taped up. "This is a bizarre and extremely disturbing case of animal cruelty," George Bengal, director of law enforcement for the SPCA, said in a statement.

I'M NOT A dog person. They're dirty. They smell. I hate when they jump on me. If I smile, I'm faking it. I cringe inside when dogs use my yard as a toilet - even if their owners clean up after them. I'd rather not eat in the same room as a furry friend, especially if they are under the table begging for scraps. They ruin my appetite. So, believe me, the last thing I want to write about is someone's dog. But I met Jessica Rennard backstage earlier this month at a fashion-show fundraiser for the Career Wardrobe and was struck by the randomness of what had happened to her puppy.

HAVE YOU EVER bought anything just because of a Super Bowl commercial? (Me neither.) Someone must. Advertisers pay more than $4 million for a 30-second spot and feel they're getting their money's worth if it gets people talking - even if they're bad-mouthing it. "If you haven't got anything nice to say about anybody," said Alice Roosevelt Longworth, "come sit next to me. " No one sits to bad mouth any more. They tweet and Facebook. In Sunday's Downer Bowl - with commercials about domestic abuse, bullying and death - viewers were not on the side of Nationwide.

If 9-year-old James had three wishes, he would ask for a million dollars, a mansion, and 15 puppies. Christmas, he declares, is his favorite holiday because "everybody gathers around and opens presents. " Although he is sometimes reserved when meeting new people, James warms up quickly to those who share his interests, particularly sports. He loves to play basketball and football; the latter is his favorite, and he dreams of playing professionally some day.

IT'S PROBABLY just as well most people's yards aren't zoned for Clydesdales. Because golden retriever puppies - already too popular for their own good - are likely to be in even more demand after Budweiser unveiled its latest cross-species love story before millions at last night's Super Bowl. Let's pause while everyone goes, "Awwwww. "; And to remember that the ad, "Best Buds," was posted to YouTube by Budweiser last Wednesday and had already had more than 33 million views a few hours before kickoff.

This canine brotherly love story, with paws in Philadelphia and Chester County, became a Facebook sensation over the weekend. Kimberly Cary, a volunteer with the Chester County SPCA, had posted pictures on Facebook late last week of the inseparable 8-month-old puppies.

TO THIS CITY'S funeral homes and cemeteries: You should all be ashamed of yourselves! It is a disgrace that not one funeral home or cemetery has come forward and offered to help bury the young mother and her three children who were run down and killed on Roosevelt Boulevard last week. And this goes for the big businesses in this city, too. Would it have hurt any of you individually or as a group to come together and donate caskets, funeral services and a cemetery plot to help this family in such a tragedy?

People say it's a dog's life, but it's not. I learned as much last week. From my dogs. We begin with some background. As you know, I'm a writer. I've been writing these columns for almost six years, and for 20-some years I've been writing novels, one a year. I love my job. And I love working at home, which has lots of advantages, like proximity to the refrigerator and the ability to wear elastic waistbands. Yes, not unrelated. But writing requires a lot of solitude.
