Ryland, an 11-pound bichon frise, was traveling to his new owner in Beijing when someone took him Tuesday from a loading area of a cargo building, said airport spokesman Mike McCarron. The dog is valued at $15,000.

Long ago, some brazen wolves started hanging around human settlements, jump-starting events that ultimately led to today's domesticated dogs. Now geneticists say they have identified one of the key changes that turned wolves into the tame, tail-wagging creatures well-suited to living by our sides - the ability to digest carbohydrates with ease. The report, published online Wednesday by the journal Nature, found signs that dogs can break down starch into sugar, and then transport those sugars from the gut into the bloodstream, more efficiently than can wolves.

The search for an award-winning show dog that got loose at Kennedy Airport was called off, but officers in the area are still keeping an eye out for the wayward whippet, authorities said. Searchers covered the airport's nearly 5,000 acres over a 24-hour period but did not spot the dog, said Alan Hicks, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Vivi, a 3-year-old champion, won an award of merit at the Westminster Kennel Club this week.

Of course I watched the National Dog Show, but not for any special rooting interest -- all of mine are what we in these parts like to call “multicultural canines.” As it turns out, I did have an interest in the winner, after the fact. The Best in Show dog was a wire fox terrier, the same breed that won last year, and co-owned by the same woman who owns last year's winner, Malibu's Torie Steele. I interviewed her about that spunky little breed for my Patt Morrison Asks column earlier this year.

It was still early in Winston's career, when some police officers scoffed at the golden Labrador retriever's talents. He had alerted them that a Buick Regal in a central Orange County motel parking lot was loaded with drugs. The car was confiscated, searched and the cops came up empty. Your dog goofed, a police sergeant told Orange County Sheriff's Department investigator Don Lambert. Lambert returned with Winston to the car. Again the golden Lab signaled the car was hot.

It's a blisteringly hot Sunday at the Fairplex in Pomona. Under the awning of Corky and Susan Vroom's rig, a fan plays upon an English springer spaniel named Dylan as he gets a blow-dry. In minutes, he will strut his stuff in the ring for the judges. Between them, the Vrooms will show 23 dogs today, among these Georgie the papillon, Bismarck the pug, Stella the Doberman, Jessica the Irish setter and a Bouvier des Flandres answering to Patton.

She's a California show dog, and she's lost in the marshes of New York. After competing at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, Vivi, a 3-year-old champion whippet, formally known as Ch. Bohem C'est La Vie, was headed home Wednesday on a Delta Air Lines flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport -- or so her owners thought. "They saw her crate being loaded, and then they saw some airport person bending down to look into it," said Bo Bengtson of Ojai, who bred Vivi.

--Minnie is back home after an unscheduled visit to Las Vegas and her owners are delighted. The 8-year-old dog disappeared four months ago during a Florida thunderstorm, and Diane and Dick Long of Daytona Beach had about given up hope of finding her. "It's absolutely amazing," Diane Long said. "My husband loves that dog more than anything in the world. We can't believe she's safe."

"The Father Clements Story" (Channels 4, 36 and 39, Sunday at 9 p.m.) is the second unusual adoption story within a week on NBC. Last Monday, "Eye on the Sparrow" showed us a blind couple attempting to adopt a baby; "Father Clements" is a fact-based story about a black priest who adopts a teen-ager. "Clements" is by far the better film.

A Pekingese with a pear-shaped body - apparently the sought-after Peke physique - and gray mane worthy of a Shetland pony won the coveted Best in Show title on Tuesday at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the Oscars of the canine world. Just a day before, Uggie, the Jack Russell terrier that was the breakout star of the movie "The Artist," fetched the prize for best film dog at the Golden Collars Awards presentation and is rumored to be appearing at the Oscars show. He was the toast of the Golden Globes stage last month.

Authorities want to get rid of hot dogs in Los Angeles. Using a poster dog named Bilby, prosecutors Thursday launched a campaign to remind pet owners that it is a crime to leave an animal unattended in a hot car. The poster shows Bilby sitting in a pan in an open oven. It reads: "Hot oven, hot car . . . It's the same thing." Deputy Dist. Atty. Deborah Knaan, the department's animal cruelty case coordinator, said loving one's pet means leaving the animal home when it's hot. She said studies show that if it is 85 degrees outside, it can climb to 102 degrees inside a car within 10 minutes and 120 degrees within 30 minutes, even if the windows are slightly open.

IF imitation really is the highest form of flattery, then the folks at Hot Dog on a Stick must be feeling pretty smug. Chefs around town are riffing on their specialty, the corn dog. But these aren't your run-of-the-mill carnival dogs. These are couture corn dogs. A steakhouse version using Kobe beef hot dogs has popped up at Santa Monica's Boa Steakhouse.

By Wednesday afternoon, Flushing was one big dog trap. Whole roasted chickens had been left out as bait. A greyhound named Hubbard sauntered around Kissena Park, offering companionship. An 83-year-old man strolled with his belt in his hands, ready to lasso if necessary. Few mysteries have captivated New Yorkers like the case of the champion whippet who, after winning a prize at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, got loose at John F. Kennedy airport five weeks ago and raced into the city.
