Tariq Malik HUNTINGTON BEACH -- A small group of residents barking at city officials to move a popular dog park from its Edwards Street location remain resolute in their mission, despite measures taken by the city to address their concerns. The eight residents, all living on Lakepoint Lane across from the Huntington Central Park-based canine park, complain that incessant barking from dogs at the park has been a bane to their quality of life and each filed a $1-million claim against the city in December.

I just wanted to comment on the Dog Park hours that have changed. Now, the Dog Park closes at 6 p.m. on weekdays and 5 p.m. on Sunday, I'm not sure about the closing on Saturdays. I know many, many Huntington Beach residents used Dog Park after 6 p.m. because of having to work all day. Their dogs enjoyed, probably more than other owners' dogs, the chance to exercise in the evening with their owners. What I don't understand is why the City Council, to pass this law, had their meeting right after the terrorist tragedy in New York, and why more people who love and care about Dog Park weren't told that this meeting was going to go ahead and be held.

I disagree with your editorial ("Does Huntington Beach really need a dog park," Jan. 25). Many people visit the park and want to see it remain open. The standing-room-only crowd that filled the Council Chambers on Jan. 10 for a public meeting was evidence of this. We all have different interests -- some of us may have children who use public playground equipment or the skateboard parks, some of us use running trails or the city pool and some of us have dogs we take to the dog park.

A small group of Huntington Beach residents are growling over the location of the Huntington Central Park-based dog park. And we think their bark has some bite. Earlier this month, the city's Community Services Commission unanimously agreed to cut back the park's operating hours to allow some relief for surrounding neighborhoods. Some residents -- specifically eight living on Lakepoint Lane across from the canine park -- don't like the incessant barking and traffic that comes along with the park.

In response to Ron Davis' article about the Huntington Beach dog park ("Surf City dog park has residents mutt-ering," Dec. 7), I offer the following: My two dogs and I have been frequent visitors to the park this past year, and I wish to offer my viewpoints on the issue. For expediency, I'll use simple statements (I understand lawyers, like Davis, appreciate that): I pass by the park twice a day going and coming from work, and I always see dogs (and their owners)

Lance Lance is a 2-year-old neutered male Aussie mix. He is black, gray and white and has a longer coat that will need to be brushed. Lance behaves well with other dogs, and is great with children of any age. He is not a barker, but when you talk to him, he will make noises back at you as if he is talking. Lance is very smart and learns quickly. Lance would be an excellent dog to take to the dog park or dog beach because he has never met a dog or human he didn't like.

CRUSOE Crusoe is a 2-year-old Rottweiler/chow mix. He has the black and brown coloring of a Rottweiler. Crusoe is easy to walk and loves to put his nose out the window when he rides in the car. He gets along well with other dogs, so the Dog Park would be a fun place to take him. Crusoe has not had any training, but he is intelligent and would do very well in an obedience class. Please come meet our Crusoe at the Orange County Humane Society, 21632 Newland St., Huntington Beach.

Huntington Beach planning commissioners and city staff on Monday discussed turning a defunct gun range into a recreational facility. Commissioners during a study session looked at the potential project's environmental impact report, which addressed the high concentration of lead found at the roughly 5-acre site next to the Sports Complex in Central Park. The gun range was opened in 1967 to provide law enforcement with a firearm training facility, but it closed in 1997 after an errant bullet broke the window of a home north of the range.

Lovely is a one-year-old German shepherd. She is a very gentle, calm dog for being so young. When you walk up to her pen, she comes up to the gate for a pet and maybe a treat, never barking. Lovely is good with other dogs and desperately wants to play with them, but shelter rules forbid dog-to-dog contact. We believe Lovely would be good with children because of her tender nature. Lovely would be a good girl to take to the dog park. Meet Lovely at the Orange County Humane Society, 21632 Newland St., Huntington Beach.

This was a meal I had looked forward to for some time and was finally able to have. We had eaten before often, though at different times and places, my meal at my desk and hers in a big pink bowl in the kitchen. By four months, though, we were both going crazy, and after Xioni (pronounced see-AHN-ee) had her last Parvo shot, I made a breakfast date for us at the Park Bench Café. One of the reasons I like Huntington Beach so much is that it is incredibly dog-friendly — dog beach, dog park and Park Bench Café.

Two pit bull mixes off their leashes attacked and killed another dog on Huntington Dog Beach Thursday afternoon, witnesses and officials said. Police and lifeguards got the dogs under control, according to an Orange County Animal Control Services official. An animal control officer came out to the beach shortly after 2:30 p.m., animal control spokesman Ryan Drabeck said. He impounded the two dogs and took them to the county shelter in Orange. While a lifeguard managed to leash one dog, a police officer had used a Taser on the other, he added.

BALTO Balto is a 3-year-old male husky mix, with a white coat and big blue eyes. He was found running around alone at the dog park. He is thin and will need a good diet to bring him up to a normal weight. Balto knows basic commands. He would probably do best in a home with older children and no other pets. Huskies have very dense coats and appreciate an outdoor environment. Balto is waiting to meet you at the Orange County Humane Society, 21632 Newland St., Huntington Beach.

We don't know how he is with cats, but he does not have an aggressive personality. He loves children of any age and has been foster cared at a home in Huntington Beach where he went to the playground and played with all the children in the park. Milou is housebroken and loves to cuddle.

Try asking why we live in Surf City How about asking readers "Why did you choose to live in Huntington Beach?" For us, we chose it because it's not Irvine or Newport, and it's not L.A. People in Huntington Beach seem more relaxed, carefree and less pretentious. The sterile, super-planned community just didn't have any appeal to us ... and you can't beat the beach (though there is something to be said about doing some planning, which is something to discuss another time)

Tom Titus The enjoyment of live theater, it has been decreed, depends on the audience's willing suspension of disbelief. And in no case does that rule apply more accurately than when playgoers are asked to accept the premise that an attractive young actress is, in fact, a dog. Yet, this is the crux of A.R. Gurney's comedy "Sylvia," now on stage at Golden West College. Sylvia not only is, quite literally, a dog, but a talking pooch who communicates freely with her new owner and his wife -- earning the undying loyalty of the former and the unwavering enmity of the latter.
