A $1,000 reward is being offered for an arrest in the case of an English bulldog stolen from a pet day care facility in northern San Diego County. A man convinced workers at Dogtopia in San Marcos that the 5-month-old dog was his, the sheriff's department said. As captured on surveillance camera, the man took the dog in his arms and disappeared. In fact, the dog, named Schroeder and purchased for $4,000, belonged to a local woman. The dog had wandered away from its home. A dog-lover found the dog and took it to Dogtopia, the sheriff's department said.

Could a cat lover from Pasadena and a dog lover from Mar Vista ever find long-lasting love? I was about to investigate this not-so-proverbial question as I zeroed in on my soon-to-be new love on my computer screen. Freshly divorced and 20 years away from the dating scene, I hesitatingly found myself searching for a match again. I'd heard horror stories from my single friends about online dating, which was an entirely new thing for me, so I did some research. was just too overwhelming, EHarmony too serious, Christian Singles too Christian, JDate too Jewish, Gluten Free Singles too flour-less and VeggieDate too meatless.

Your dog may eagerly scamper wherever you do, especially on vacation, but his paws can become cracked and infected, especially on surfaces such as hot pavement or sand. That's where Alcott's Adventure Boots can be your dog's second best friend. These tough booties (four to a package, obviously), have thick rubber soles for protection and traction, and double Velcro closures with reflective accents for nighttime visibility. Your dog will take to these like … well, like a dog takes to boots, so you'll likely need some patience and practice to get canine cooperation.

NEW YORK -- Saajid Badat had been through all the training, from firing weapons while riding a motorcycle to watching dogs and rabbits, trapped under glass, die slow, agonizing deaths as he learned poisoning techniques.    He had laughed with other Al Qaeda members as the self-confessed mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, scanned a list of tall buildings and crossed out the World Trade Center towers weeks after hijackers had destroyed them.  Now, Badat was ready to carry out Al Qaeda's next big mission, a plan to down two U.S. jetliners using bombs hidden in shoes.

Re "A heartbreaking'rescue,'" Column, March 4 I am familiar with Karma Rescue from volunteer work. The organization does good work and puts a lot of time and energy into rescue and even rehabilitation. The situation involving Raffiki and the family of the grief-stricken 4-year-old who lost the dog has nothing to do with elitism. A secure yard is generally a must, as is spaying or neutering. Before condemning Karma for rescuing the dog and placing her with another family, we should ask how Raffiki got out of the yard in the first place, why she wasn't fixed and why she wasn't microchipped.
