Books make perfect gifts for pet-lovers

It’s that time of year again – the season of gift giving. We gave up long ago trying to find just the right trinket for family and friends; we just give books instead. There is always something to suit anyone’s interests. If you’re buying for pet lovers this year – or for yourself – there’s a “bone-anza” of books from which to choose.

It's raining cats and dogs at theaters. Mostly dogs.

It's raining cats and dogs at some area theaters. Mostly dogs. Live animals have been a part of the theater world since its beginnings in the Greek festival of Dionysus, in which animals were ripped limb-from-limb in an orgiastic frenzy. That doesn't happen anymore, fortunately, but there are an awful lot of dogs on stage these days, including, coincidentally, two canine Sandys who currently are adding a little havoc to productions of "Annie" and "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time."
