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.

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.

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.

Milou Milou is a 1 1/2 -year-old male unneutered Rottweiler/Labrador mix. He is brown and black with a pretty pink tongue and deep brown eyes. Milou loves other dogs. 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.

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.
