Like thousands of other recession victims, Bud is facing a layoff. And while the outlook for any job seeker is hardly rosy in this economy, employment prospects are particularly dim for Bud. Because, at age 5, prospective employers may consider Bud too old to retrain. Bud is a Lower Makefield Police dog. Half the force, in fact. He and his colleague, Zeus, both formidable and frisky German shepherds, don't know it yet, but they soon will feel the same economic pinch that plenty of humans have been struggling with for months.

Gloucester County's first and only bomb-detecting canine is howling mad. Until this fall, Zeus was pretty content with police work that consisted of the sundown-to-sunup chore of helping transport prisoners, followed by an early morning bomb check through the three-story courthouse on Hunter Street. Then his master messed everything up. Sheriff's officer Leonard Oullette began working the day shift in the courthouse, ushering prosecutors, defense attorneys, victims and defendants through the court's metal detector.

Move over, Bobby Bonilla. The new year's hottest bidding war isn't over a major-league hitter, but a pair of four-legged crime sniffers. Last week, police dogs Bud and Zeus of Lower Makefield, Bucks County, faced unwanted free agency - caused by municipal belt-tightening - that their human partners feared could be permanent. But this week, the canine cops are being recruited by law enforcement officials from Maryland to New York. So far, Delaware County Prison officials appear to have the inside track on acquiring the pair.

Doggone! For the second time in a year, a Doberman pinscher has been stolen from a pen in back of the Ace Car Experts on the Black Horse Pike in Turnersville. "I'm not holding any grudges," James R. Costello said of the thieves. "But if they get caught, it's grand larceny. " Costello, owner of the auto shop, has offered a $200 reward for the return of 7-month-old Zeus, described as black and tan, about 55 pounds and wearing a blue spiked collar. About two weeks ago, shop mechanic Rocco Mockewich came to work and found the pup gone from the 20-by-15-foot fenced-in run behind the shop.

Every morning before school, Shane Bucher, 11, would go to his next-door neighbor's house in Port Richmond to meet with friends before walking to Bridesburg School together. He would often play with Zeus, the neighbor's 3-year-old American bulldog, said his 13-year-old brother, Brad. But on Wednesday, Zeus mauled Shane, and would not unclench his jaws until a neighbor shot the dog twice, killing it. Shane was reported in stable condition at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children after five hours of surgery, said his father, Paul.

EVERY PLAYER in the National Football League aspires to win a Super Bowl. But few of them also aspire to win Best in Show at Westminster. OK, only one. Before he became a football star at Detroit Catholic Central High School and the University of Michigan, Eagles defensive tackle Mike Martin was a pretty big deal in the dog-show world. When he was a freshman in high school, he was named the No. 1 junior handler in the working-dog group by the American Kennel Club. The working-dog group includes larger breeds such as St. Bernards, Bernese mountain dogs, boxers, Great Danes, bull mastiffs, Siberian huskies and Rottweilers.

HOMELAND Security chief Chertoff says his gut feeling is that an al Qaeda attack may be imminent - yet says he has no direct evidence. Recently, they've been so incompetent that a gang of doctors who couldn't shoot straight failed to even kill themselves. Let's give Western ingenuity some credit and treat these miscreants as the hooligans they are. The more we make them larger than life, the more they're going to believe it. The more they believe it, the more they'll persist.

Read this list slowly: Oysters Chocolate Honey Strawberries Asparagus Artichokes. Bananas. Now what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Sex, right? Of course. Because all of the above have hot, hot, hot reputations as aphrodisiacs. These are (so it's said) the foods of love, the taste of romance, a veritable blue plate special of sexual arousal. "The only one for which there is any scientific evidence is chocolate," says Jim Coleman, executive chef at the Rittenhouse Hotel.

At the mention of Flemish baroque artist Peter Paul Rubens and his masterpiece Prometheus Bound , the first thing that comes to mind probably is not Spider-Man. And yet - why not? Is Prometheus, the titan who defied Zeus and stole fire from Mount Olympus and then bestowed it on humanity any less a tortured superhero than Spidey? He suffered terribly for his heroic act of aid and defiance. The infuriated Zeus had him chained to a rock where, every night, an eagle descended and savagely ripped out his perpetually regenerating liver.

His name was Zeus. He was big, mean (to a 6-year-old), and he scared LeSean McCoy into running for his life. The Eagles running back doesn't quite know how he got his elusive moves, although he has his theories. But his older brother, LeRon, traces McCoy's ability to cut on a dime back to Zeus. "When we were kids we had this Rottweiler. Big dog. His name was Zeus," LeRon McCoy said recently. "LeSean is about six years younger than me and we used to go to this football field across the street from my house and take our dog for a walk.

Ancient Greek myth has it that the Titan Prometheus was bound to a rock by Zeus as punishment for stealing the divine element of fire and turning it over to humans. Theatrical fire is what's missing in a version of the tale staged currently at Society Hill Playhouse's Red Room. The flame of A Prometheus Bound: A Folk Musical is weak, barely fanned by inadequate production values, and misted by a cast whose a cappella voices are generally too halting when they are not (a few times, cringingly)

They all said he was a nice dog. But something inside Zeus snapped yesterday morning. The American bulldog who loved dog biscuits and backscratches went berserk and attacked an 11-year-old neighbor as the boy and his friend got ready for school in Port Richmond. Thirteen-year-old Brad Bucher heard his brother Shane screaming and sprinted to help. The scene outside his home on Mercer Street near Tioga seemed straight out of a horror movie: Shane struggled frantically on the sidewalk, Zeus' teeth sunk into his bloodied neck.
