preparing meals for the hungry holiday hounds

They are Thanksgiving meals fit for King. Or Spot. Or Rover. Kelly Hannaford, the general manager and head chef for Three Dog Bakery franchise stores in Pasadena and Los Angeles, has been perfecting her $19.95 "Feast for the Beast," which includes Lamb Wellington, a pound of bakery blend kibble, fresh carrots, a spinach dip and a pumpkin pie. Barkley Square Professional Pet Services & Gourmet Dog Bakery in Alexandria, Va., sells a $16 holiday meal of oven-baked turkey, rice with carrots, peas and carrots, biscuits, an animal-faced masked pumpkin and pumpkin doggy truffles. Executive chef Tara Ross of Dog City Bakery is catering the 3 p.m. Thanksgiving meal for Barkley Pet Hotels & Day Spas in Westlake Village, Calif., and Cleveland. It includes a turkey-shaped biscuit baked with real turkey, potatoes, yams, herbs and dried cranberries; Iams gravy; and a mashed potato-filled dog toy. Dinner is not all Thanksgiving holds for Barkley guests — they are invited to watch the animal balloons in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the National Dog Show.

Unwed, uncoupled from cell phones

A northern Indian village has banned unmarried women from using cell phones for fear they will arrange forbidden marriages that are often punished by death. The Lank village council decided unmarried boys could use cell phones, but only under parental supervision. Marriages between members of the same clan are forbidden under Hindu custom in some parts of north India, where unions are traditionally arranged by families. Last month, 34 couples eloped in Muzaffarnagar district, where Lank is located in the state of Uttar Pradesh, with eight honor killings reported.

Gelatin, pudding cups are road kill

Northern Iowa authorities cleaned up a slippery mess after a tipped semitrailer spilled Jell-O and pudding cups across a county road. The Floyd County Sheriff's Office said 52 pallets of gelatin and pudding fell from the trailer when its top ripped open after the 39-year-old driver wasn't able to make a turn and went into the ditch where the rig rolled onto its side. It took crews three hours to clean up the debris.

New Jersey pastor is taking a leave

The pastor who said Facebook can lead to adultery is temporarily stepping down after admitting he had engaged in a three-way sexual relationship several years ago. The Rev. Cedric Miller last week urged congregants at his Living Word Christian Fellowship Church in Neptune, N.J., to drop their Facebook accounts because some were having affairs facilitated by the social networking site. Miller told the Associated Press Wednesday he would be "taking some time off" after a church vote Tuesday night on his status as senior pastor. He said he will resume his pastorate "eventually."

    TAMPA

    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?
