  • No evidence that pit bulls are more likely to bite

    The Maryland SPCA is not only disappointed in the Maryland Court of Appeals recent ruling stating all "pit bulls" are inherently dangerous but also Dan Rodricks' commentary ("Pit bulls: Own at your risk," April 30). It is tragic to hear of anyone...

  • Rodricks perpetuates prejudice against pit bulls

    It is disheartening to read Dan Rodricks prejudiced column ("Pit bulls: Own them at your own risk," May 1). Mr. Rodricks' shoddy research helps perpetuate the misinformation that slanders this dog breed, leading to bad legislation that responsible dog...

    Light up dog toys and accessories that really shine
    It's this time of year, when it gets dark so early, that those of us with dogs start thinking about blinky lights for their collars. But the world of light-up dog products has gotten a lot more sophisticated than that. These days, in addition to the...
  • A vet's view of pit bulls

    As a practicing veterinarian in Baltimore, specializing in house-call appointments for time-pressed and senior "pet parents," I travel throughout the city. I go into neighborhoods, many under-serviced by the veterinary community, and sit with pet...
