ABOUT two years ago, Mike White told Molly Shannon he wanted to write a movie for her. "He never would tell me what it was about. And then he [finally] said it was about a brother and a sister around Christmas, and maybe it was on a college campus," Shannon says. "Then it obviously changed." White's screenplay turned into "Year of the Dog," which has nothing to do with a brother and a sister, does not unfold around Christmas and isn't set on any college campus.

This couldn't have come as a big surprise: "Year of the Dog," a movie about a woman who segues from pet lover to activist, has been named feature film of the year at the 22nd annual Genesis Awards, presented by the Humane Society of the United States to honor media presentations of animal protection issues. The comedy, written and directed by Mike White, was praised for its "quirky yet ultimately compassionate portrait" of the activist (played by Molly Shannon). In ceremonies Saturday at the Beverly Hillton, "Sharkwater" won as top documentary film, and TV honors went to "According to Jim," for an episode on making sacrifices for a family pet, and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," for an episode on dog fighting.

When the newest "Lassie" movie reaches theaters this summer, Paramount Pictures won't be the only one with a chance to profit from the courageous hound. Pet stores and dog breeders can expect a surge in customers who simply must have a collie of their own. It's a common phenomenon. Beer commercials featuring Spuds MacKenzie made the American bull terrier popular overnight, industry experts say. After the 1990 film "Beethoven," St. Bernards became the rage.
