The German shepherd was lashed to a fence inside an abandoned junkyard. With no food and water, he began drinking his own urine. Part of his right ear was torn or bitten off. A too-small collar was embedded into his skin. Lesions and scabs dotted his back where there should have been fur. When an unidentified good Samaritan brought the dog through the front door of the Emergency Pet Clinic of San Gabriel Valley last winter, a stench filled the room. Dr. Jeffrey Patlogar took one look and thought the animal needed to be euthanized, immediately, to end its suffering.

Movie producer Dick Shepherd, whose credits include "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961), "The Fugitive Kind" (1960) and "Robin and Marian" (1976), probably saved one of the most popular film songs of all time. After a test screening of "Breakfast at Tiffany's," Paramount executive Marty Rackin gathered the creative team and said, "I loved the picture," as recounted in the 2010 Sam Wasson book, "Fifth Avenue, 5 a.m.," about the film. But there was one problem. Rackin hated the plaintive ballad, "Moon River," that star Audrey Hepburn sings in the movie.

"Allure of the Arroyo" (Jan. 22) was especially interesting and well presented. However, you neglected to identify the beautiful German shepherd in the picture on Page 8. Is he just a visitor for a creativity workshop, or is this his home? He seems to be enjoying and relaxing in the feng shui of the room. You identified "Rose" and "Bud" on Page 3, so how about ID on the German shepherd? Charles Jenner, DVM Los Alamitos Editor's note: The German shepherd, Bismarck, is a 7-year-old rescue dog who is, indeed, a member of the King household.

Archbishop Mahoney's public scolding of Supervisor Antonovich and crew for their political scapegoating of the poorest and weakest among us was an act of courage. It also served notice that this good shepherd knows how, when and upon whom to use his staff in the defense of his flock. Wolves, take heed! GEORGE D. CROOK Pico Rivera

Praise the Lord for Thomas, who filled me with ethical fervor by quoting Bishop John Meyers' truly uplifting statement, "From an ethical point of view, there is no distinction between being 'pro-choice' and being "pro-abortion.' " The only thing this faithful shepherd could say to bring me closer to God would be, "From an ethical point of view, there is no distinction between failing to cast a stone at an adulteress and condoning adultery."

On Sunday, Miley Cyrus became the latest in a long line of young women to take to the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards with the express purpose of stirring up controversy. And so far, the media have obediently complied, clutching their pearls en masse over her raunchy but otherwise mediocre performance -- one that made Britney Spears' snake-dancing seem like high art by comparison. With "The View" in repeats this week, however, the predictable chorus of outrage has been lacking a few critical voices.

Morgan Shepherd is scheduled to be the oldest driver to start a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race this weekend at age 71. Shepherd, who made his first Cup start in 1970, is entered for Sunday's race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the No. 52 Toyota. "This is truly a milestone," Shepherd said on his website, "and I thank all who are involved to help make this happen. " His last start in NASCAR's Cup series was in 2006, when he was 64, also at New Hampshire. Shepherd would break the oldest-driver record held by Jim Fitzgerald, who started a race at age 65 at the now-defunct Riverside (Calif.)

Episodes of the veteran game show that pits newly married couples against each other are being revived on Bounce TV, which is geared toward African Americans. The series, which first premiered on ABC in 1965, has been on and off the air on various networks and in syndication since its launch. These episodes were previously produced for the Game Show Network. But founding host Bob Eubanks, the personality most identified with the show, will not be along for the ride this go-round.

Late-night television, busier than ever (and at its best, better than ever) with talk shows and comedy, has been in the news again lately, with the hand-over of "The Tonight Show" from Jay Leno to Jimmy Fallon officially announced for next spring - a change in stewardship that will also take the show back to New York from Burbank. The man who brought "The Tonight Show" west in the first place is producer Peter Lassally, who wanted to live in Los Angeles and in 1972 convinced Johnny Carson that California was the place he ought to be. Lassally, 80, is now producer of the singular "The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson"; when I interviewed Ferguson in 2010, he told me that the person I really should be talking to was Lassally.

Los Angeles Windward students were quoting Shakespeare in the third quarter of Friday's Southern Section Division 4AA boys' basketball playoff game against visiting Westlake Village Oaks Christian. "That's 'The Tempest,'" sophomore forward Mason Shepherd said. "We're reading it right now. " "That's the Windward kids," Coach Miguel Villegas said. "They try to be creative. " Windward's fans are going to be busy if the basketball team keeps playing as well as it did in a 77-51 second-round victory against the Lions.

WASHINGTON - The first time Barack Obama ran, the euphoria that attended his election captivated Kamilah Aquil. Then came his presidency, a bracing reality check. Hope faded. Not enough changed. But for Aquil, that doesn't make Obama a disappointment. It does make this second inauguration Monday a landmark she never expected and one she considers even more profound than the first. He's not just the first black president, but a man Americans trusted enough, missteps and all, to give another shot at shepherding our country.

After jurors watched a video Friday showing a muzzled German Shepherd being beaten to death with a hammer, the Pasadena man on trial for that crime quickly pleaded no contest to felony animal cruelty and misdemeanor petty theft. Young Song, 42, was immediately sentenced in Pasadena by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Darrell Mavis to a year in jail and three years of formal probation. Song, who was also banned from possessing any animals for 10 years, could have faced more than four years in prison.
