KENT, England - As I strolled around the grounds and gardens of gorgeous, romantic Leeds Castle - the second-most-popular tourist attraction in Kent, after Canterbury Cathedral - absorbing its 900-year history, imagine my surprise when I came across its Dog Collar Museum.

Q: We were recently surprised when our veterinarian told us that our puppy needed to be treated over a three week period for a disease caused by an internal parasite called isospora. Our veterinarian made the diagnosis while she was conducting a routine examination of our puppy's stool sample. We did not know that our puppy had any problems. He is full of energy, growing rapidly, and seems to be very normal. Is isospora a ... [full story]

Q: Our son and daughter-in-law have been married almost 11 years and have two wonderful grandchildren for us to spoil. We have recently become aware from our son's comments their marriage is on the rocks. His wife has threatened divorce. If this should happen, it would break our hearts.

You could call this a "mea culpa" column. A few weeks ago, I announced with utmost certainty that we had made a mistake leaving cosmopolitan Washington, D.C., five years ago for a historic rural outpost in Maryland - Frederick - and we were heading back, posthaste, to the nation's capital. We had fled Washington after 9/11 fearful that the terrorist attacks in the United States would continue and Washington would be a prime target. But ... [full story]

So you're thinking about heading for a national park, are you? Dusting off your tent, packing the car with supplies, looking forward to getting back to nature. Thing is, once you're there it might be difficult to carve out your own little piece of solitude. You might have to deal with bumper-to-bumper traffic, crowded camping sites or exorbitant lodging prices. That is, unless you choose to visit in the offseason.   PERFECT VIEW - Just outside ...

HOPKINS, Belize - The large, thatched-roof, sand-carpeted temple was barren except for the obviously ill child curled up in the single cot by the wall. An old woman could be heard chanting from within her sacred chamber, candlelight flickering around the corners of the sheet separating her from the long hall. Her healing incantations, I later discovered, were addressed to the spirits who may have had reasons of their own to inflict the child.   OFF ... [full story]

It has pretended to be Switzerland, Sweden and the Adirondacks and very few are the wiser. Its crystal-clear skies, snow-capped peaks and azure blue lake could place it in any of those locations, but in truth it lies in the Far West.   MANSION ROW - Lake Arrowhead, once called Little Bear Valley, is an upscale resort a two hours drive away from Los Angeles.

Q. Is giardia a problem in dogs? Because we camp a lot in the western United States we are constantly concerned about our children and dogs getting giardia from the streams and small lakes near our campsites. We use commercial filters or use iodine tablets to purify our drinking water. However, we cannot prevent our dogs from drinking out of the streams and lakes. Should we be concerned? Fortunately, neither our dogs nor our children ... [full story]

Some children are luckier than others when it comes to the parents they inherit. Ivory Lewis, 61, and her mom, Lily "Lillis" Lewis, 92, both lucked out. They're best friends, not because of circumstances, but because they want to be. Lily is a still-life and portrait painter. Ivory, who has degrees in anthropology and urban planning, is retired. This spring, the daughter and best friend orchestrated her mom's first one-woman art show. Ivory secured a ... [full story]
