      But what city is the least dog-friendly? 
      We know Huntington Beach has a reputation for being the most dog-friendly city in Southern California.  Vying for that dubious title, at least if you ask some residents, is Redondo Beach. All of Redondo's 20-plus parks (with the exception of its excellent off-leash dog park) have a strict no-dogs-allowed policy, but a group of dog-loving residents is working to change that.  -L.A.

      Long Beach Dog Beach
      The 3-acre off-leash area at the Pacific Ocean is open year-round from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.  Limit one dog per adult.  Dogs must be collared, at least four months old, vaccinated, and registered with the animal care/control that services their hometown.  Convenient and plentiful beachfront metered parking lot available (25 cents/15 minutes).  The off-leash zone is at the beach in Belmont Shore between Argonne and Roycroft avenues and is outlined with orange traffic cones.  Compete rules, sample video and other details at www.DogZone.org

      rescue dog Bo just had a book published.
       It's called BAD TO THE BONE: Memoir Of A Rebel Doggie Blogger, and is the first book written by a dog ever to be published in non-fiction, not bad for a writer in a fur suit.

      Hi, I was wondering what the law is for dog breed restrictions in apartments. Is it legal in Long Beach for landlords to restrict different breeds in an apartment? I've heard of restrictions on weight, but if that's the case, I have a neighbor in an apartment owned by the same landlord who has a dog twice the size of mine. I just wanted to find out before getting into any discussion with the landlord.  -C

      Would you all like to host an Operation Santa Paws collection box
      somewhere, and then bring the collected goodies to help give out at a shelter on Dec. 19?  Details at www.SantaPaws.info

      30-Minute Beach Cleanup on Sat., Dec. 19 at 10 a.m. www.BeachCleanup.org

      If you have room at home for another pet, consider stopping by your local shelter
       or checking Web sites like Petfinder.com and PetHarbor.com. The animals sheltered by local facilities come with some definite pluses: They are in good health, have been vaccinated and evaluated for behavioral issues, have been neutered and often are microchipped.  - SAMANTHA GOWEN

      A few words of caution, however, for anyone who brings a new pet home over the holiday:

      Be prepared to spend a lot of time helping the new pet acclimate to his/her new home.

      Do not socialize a new pet too soon. Establish a rhythm at home and learn more about the dog before you introduce it to a social setting like a dog park. Remember, everything's new and quite shocking to the animal.

      For new dog owners: Get to training right away. The sooner the dog and the owner understands how to set boundaries and commands, the better off everyone will be. Behavior issues are the No. 1 reason most animals are returned or abandoned to animal shelters. - SAMANTHA GOWEN
