NEW YORK - Sky, a wire fox terrier with scores of best-in-show titles under her furry white belt, added another one to the collection Tuesday night by winning the top prize at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. The ginger-and-white dog defeated six others - whittled down from more than 2,800 - to take the prize, which brings no money but a trophy, a large ribbon, fame and a steak lunch at Sardi's. It's the 14th time the breed has won best in show here. "It's overwhelming. I'm so proud of her. There's no words to describe this," Sky's handler, Gabriel Rangel, said after the judge, Betty Regina Leininger, tapped Sky at the close of the two-day event.

"Terriers," which begins Wednesday on FX, is a wonderfully well-conceived, well-made and well-played series about a pair of soft-boiled downmarket private detectives in over their heads in San Diego. In a fall season overly populated with cops and criminals, there may be more stylish or quirky or elaborately premised series coming your way, straining to cut an edge or push an envelope. But "Terriers," whose virtues are more traditional, is to my taste easily the best of them, and one of the brightest lights in the whole freshman class.

Well, there you have it: A record-breaking dog. For the first time in history, a breed captured back-to-back “Best In Show” titles at the National Dog Show on Thursday in Philadelphia: a wire fox terrier named Sky. The 4-year-old won the 1,500-dog competition, continuing the reign started last year by another wire fox terrier, Eira. Thursday's show was broadcast by NBC to a turkey-drowsed holiday audience, and millions would be further basted by waves of golf-hush commentary on the usual array of bizarre, beautiful dogs: A Great Dane that looked bigger than its handler, a bearded collie that seemed more coat than animal, dogs sometimes more high-end sports car than man's best friend.

Cracker: Let no serious '90s revival begin without this roots-rock band led by Camper Van Beethoven's David Lowery, who may be best remembered for the alt-radio hit "Low" and the snide almost-anthem, "Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now). " Headlining the hipper-than-thou Echoplex this week, Lowery shows that his taste for brash, Americana-informed rock remains as sharp as his biting wit on the band's new record, "Sunrise in the Land of Milk and Honey. " Danny Trejo: We haven't yet seen Robert Rodriguez's slyly ultra-violent "Grindhouse" spinoff "Machete," but nothing makes us happier than knowing this character actor is getting his due as the lead.

It was a somewhat dispiriting fall to be a TV critic. That is not to say there were no good new shows, or that individual good work was not done on less good shows. "What's good this season?" people would ask. " 'Terriers' is good," I would reply, to which I can now add, "and it's been canceled. " Or I'd say, " 'Rubicon' is good. " And that's gone too Like everything else, TV comes in waves: There are peaks and troughs, periods of renaissance and periods of decadence, of expansion and retraction, of innovation followed by imitation.

The last line of defense came up with a first-rate effort for Redlands High in the Southern Section Division V final at Belmont Plaza Pool. Redlands goalie Camille Clarendon made 16 saves in an 8-7 victory against top-seeded J.W. North and never allowed the Huskies to pull even. Helped along by Clarendon's six saves in the first quarter, the Terriers raced to a 4-0 lead in the first 3:57. J.W.

A suspected dog-fighting operation has been broken up, San Diego County animal services officials said Thursday. Ten pit bull terriers believed used in fighting were seized in a raid after officials received a tip from a citizen. Some dogs were chained, others were entangled around stakes and many had scars on their faces and legs. The property owner was not home when search warrants were served. The dogs were taken to a shelter in Carlsbad and information turned over to the district attorney's office for possible criminal charges.

It was difficult for Santa Ana High School forward Darrell Bailey to describe how he felt after the Saints' 57-54 win over Redlands in the first round of the 4-A Southern Section playoffs. Santa Ana (20-6) will play Simi Valley (24-2)--a 67-56 winner over Glendale--in the second round. It's not that Bailey is a man of few words, it was just that he didn't have the breath to form them. He was exhausted.

Michelle Reiter lost $4,000 in cash, a 32-inch TV and a laptop computer when her Glendale home was burglarized. But also stolen that day was something far more valuable — her 11-year-old teacup Yorkshire terrier, Sophie. Since that time, she has been frantically searching for Sophie, not only because the dog is her greatest love, but because Sophie needs periodic medication for her bowels. Sophie was reported stolen after burglars entered Reiter's home on May 7 in the 600 block of Beulah Street through a rear bathroom window and ransacked the inside, according to Glendale Police Department reports.

Backstage at the Academy Awards was a place for unscripted moments of jitters, jubilation -- and doggy treats. "We're so old and we're so happening!" Meryl Streep shouted, throwing her arms around her longtime makeup artist J. Roy Helland when the two Oscar winners converged in the scrum outside the press room. Behind Streep and Helland clutching their statuettes, Uggie, the Jack Russell terrier from"The Artist,"was collecting rewards for his performance as well -- some treats delivered by trainer Omar Von Muller.

I'm a mutt fancier myself -- or "multicultural canines," as my dogs prefer -- but like millions of other lovers of canines of all kinds, I'll be tuning in Monday to watch the Westminster Kennel Club dog show , the 136th. There's at least one hot California dog in the running, a wire fox terrier nicknamed Eira. She's four years old, and she belongs to breederTorie Steele of Malibu. Eira took Best in Show at the National Dog Show on Thanksgiving, and Steele hopes she will become only the third dog to win the canine double-crown, the National Dog Show and Westminster.

A dog that vanished from a Sacramento suburb Tuesday afternoon was reunited with its owner Saturday after turning up more than 700 miles away, unharmed, in Washington state. The dog, a 2-year-old Patterdale terrier named Bear, was last seen playing around the family construction business where its owner, 32-year-old Bryan Rapozo, works with his father. "Bryan is with Bear every day," said his father, Bret Rapozo, 51. "It's like his son. Everywhere Bryan goes, Bear's with him. " He added, "He was very upset.

Rachel Campos de Ivanov was walking her dog last Sunday night when she saw two eyes glowing in the darkness. Her border terrier barked furiously. The eyes came closer, and she discerned a masked furry critter. She turned away and her pursuer, a raccoon, charged. Then four other raccoons dropped from the trees and joined the chase. "I was running as fast as I could and screaming at the top of my lungs, 'Help! Help! Help!' " said the East Bay resident. "I ran about a third of a block, then tripped and fell on the ground.

Pat Enkema of North Hollywood was a Pierce College biology professor until she retired in February. She now spends much of her time searching for her "field - trip helper." Ralph, a brown and white Australian sheep dog, has been missing since October. It was a normal Friday. I put the two dogs in the car. We were going to the park to do a run, and then we were going shopping afterwards.

Homicide detective Jim Longworth was up to his ears in hurricanes, mosquitoes and gators, a constant reminder that he'd traded fast-paced Chicago for a town called Pahokee and other swampy environs. His new stomping ground in rural Florida was only a few hours but a world away from trendy South Beach. As the crime-solving hero of "The Glades," A&E's most-watched show in its first season, Longworth (played by Matt Passmore) waded through muck in sugar cane fields, investigated a community filled with psychics and dug for buried treasure.
