Member Services PHOTOS: GARRETT DAVIS, NEW YORK TIMES/REDUX TOP ; PAUL NICKLEN Lucas, a pit bull that was forced to fight, found a peaceful life at Dogtown. Polar Circling Naturalists are always on duty as the Lindblad Expeditions ship National Geographic Explorer cruises around the Arctic Sval- bard islands. Taking advantage of 24-hour daylight, they look for rare birds, crashing ice cliffs, floating polar bears (right)---and they'll wake sleeping passengers who don't want to miss a thing. Photographers are on hand as well to serve as mentors. Lind- blad's Svalbard trip is now avail- able with five July departures. Canine Rehab Barney lived in a puppy mill in West Virginia, confined to a cage, his skin mangy and flecked with feces. Today the shih tzu is "living the good life" in Manhattan, says Chris Valen- tini, producer of Dogtown, the second season of which airs on Fridays at 10 p.m. Ten episodes will track rescue and rehabilita- tion efforts at Dogtown, part of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah. Besides Barney, the new season's stars include two street dogs from Ethiopia and a biting bloodhound.
