Barbara, aka “Barbie”, had been on store shelves since 1959, but her hunky boyfriend wasn’t introduced until two years later, when the two “met” on the imaginary set of a TV commercial. Each of them has had a wide variety of occupations over the years, Barbie having been a teacher, dentist, veterinarian, Air Force jet pilot, firefighter, astronaut, and ballerina, among many others. Ken has worked as a pizza delivery boy, rock star, pro tennis player, and doctor, just a few of his 40+ careers. After 43 years as a couple,

● At the 1904 World’s Fair in Saint Louis, it was particularly hot. An icecream vendor was doing so much business that he ran out of the cups in which he was serving the ice cream. He looked to the other foodsellers to see if they had any spare containers that would be useful, but he had no luck. Finally, desperate not to lose any more business, he bought some waffles from a nearby vendor and wrapped one around each scoop of ice cream as he sold it. The result was even more popular than icecream in a cup, and thus the ice cream cone was born.

Fide canem: the creed of canine search-andrescue organizations. These two words often adorn their logos or sit high atop their websites. Reassuring words. They are Latin for “trust the dog.” “Trust the dog” is the first rule new SAR dog handlers learn. That rule paid handsomely in Haiti, where SAR teams were responsible for a record number of saved lives. Debra Tosch, executive director of the Search Dog Foundation, told the Los Angeles Daily News, “When you go on a mission like Haiti hoping to get one rescue, one find, the fact that they’re having multiple rescues is just amazing.” SDF is a nonprofit organization whose mission is “to strengthen disaster response in America by recruiting rescued dogs and partnering them with firefighters and other first responders to find people buried alive in the wreckage of disasters.” In January 2006, when the monumental earthquake shook the Western hemisphere’s poorest country to its core, at least 175 SAR dogs and their handlers arrived on the scene to do their part. Dogs from the Netherlands and China. From Ireland and France. From the United States, Britain and Canada. Mexico, Peru and Taiwan. Dogs from Spain, Iceland, Germany and Venezuela. What makes these dogs so invaluable? In the context of a calamity like quake-ravaged Haiti, one certified SAR dog is the equivalent of 40 human beings trained in disaster relief. A certified SAR team -- one dog, one handler -- can accomplish more in these circumstances in 10 minutes than a single person could in several hours. How do they do it? By the divine light of their natural-born gifts, in part. Dogs possess night-vision without the funny goggles. Their ears pick up more sound frequencies than ours, and their bodies are more agile. They are smaller, lighter and fearless under conditions that would reduce most of us to nightmares. The reason behind the credo, though, is that famous canine sniffer. While a person has about 5 million olfactory sensory cells, a dog can have up to 220 million. Canines perceive certain smells in the range of one part in 10 quadrillion. And one-third of a dog’s brain is devoted to olfaction, meaning he is “scent smart.” According to Gary Settles, professor of mechanical engineering at Penn State University, who studied the canine olfactory system for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, “They use scent the way we read the newspaper.”

(2009-2010) showed that 35.7 percent of adults were obese with a BMI of 30 or higher. A quick review: To accurately assess a person’s weight, you have to correct the value for their height. This is done using the body mass index, which is calculated by dividing weight in pounds by height in inches squared then multiplying by Dr. David Lipschitz 703. Ideal weight is defined as a BMI between 18 and 24, “overweight” is a BMI between 24 and 30, “obesity” is above 30 and “extreme obesity” is a BMI above 40. The most recent information indicates that 40 percent of adult men and 30 percent of adult women are “overweight.” But the trends over the last 20 years suggest that it’s the lack of exercise, as much as diet, that’s Being moderately overweight is associated with responsible for the dramatic rise of obesity.

CASEY’S CORNER (from page 9) To put that in normal domestic dog terms, that’s how your dog can mark the same spot on the carpet repeatedly, no matter how much perfumed cleanser you drown it in. But for bomb-sniffing dogs, cadaversniffing dogs or search-and-rescue dogs, this heightened sensitivity becomes the stuff of superheroes. And it is why SAR canine handlers are taught, above all: Fide canem. Specialized training with an expert handler turns a dog’s unique gifts into a lifesaving skillset. Tosch said of the SAR teams’ role in Haiti, “All SDF handlers are experts in reading their canines… The canines are literally the Task Force’s most precious tool in the hunt for survivors: Their well-being is mission-critical.” And that well-being is ensured. SDF repays their debt of gratitude to these distinguished dogs by guaranteeing a cushy retirement. Not that these hardworking canines seem overly concerned with their benefits plan. Terry Trepanier, a lieutenant with the Washington Twp. Fire Department, and his golden retriever, Woody, spent 10 days at Ground Zero after September 11. “To know what they’ve been through and to see how they performed makes you proud. And they never complain,” said Trepanier. “They just wag their tails and say, ‘Let’s go.’” These remarkable dogs are a part of our lives. We pass them in airports, cruise by them at border crossings and sail past them at our nation’s ports. We read about them when children go missing or when a victim of Alzheimer’s disappears. On 9/11, we all sat riveted as they reported for duty when the Twin Towers crumbled in New York City. And today, we stand by as they respond to the cry for help in other disaster areas around the globe. Next time you encounter one, be sure to issue a much-deserved scratch behind the ears. To find out more about SDF’s SAR dogs or to make a donation, visit searchdogfoundation.org. Or google “search and rescue dogs” to extend your research to other similarly worthy organizations. Woof!
