MAC WINS!

Tuesday, Feb, 12 2013

MAC DID IT!

Big news from the Wesminster Kennel Club Show.

Friend of the PhilCast Julie Seaton's Australian Terrier named Mac won best of breed earlier today and will be on TV tonight!

Julie, a breeder from Muskego, Wisconsin, calls it a "dream of a lifetime".

Indeed.

This is pretty amazing stuff.

So tonight Mac will compete in the overall Terrier group and the winner of that group will be able to go for the ultimate prize, 'Best In Show'.

Mac was one of the dogs I featured in a report from the Wisconsin Kennel Club dog show a little less than a year ago.


There we are last year posing after Julie had told me about her plans to enter Mac in this year's Westminster show.

At the time she explained that Mac was something special and that indeed he may have a shot to make the "TV round" at the biggest dog show in the country.

And so he shall.

Tonight. Coverage begins on the USA channel at 7:00 central time.

Julie will be live on the PhilCast today right after the 3:30 news to talk about her big night tonight.

I first met Julie quite by accident.
Sandy and I had just rescued a little Cairn Terrier from the Wisconsin Humane Society about five years ago.

At just under a year old we were not sure if indeed that was her breed or perhaps she was an Aussie like Mac. It was hard to tell at the time and I wanted an expert's opinion. I found Julie on the internet. She was local and more than happy to invite us over with Gabby to take a look for herself.

Click Here to see more info about her breeding business.


 And to wrap it up, I had to post at least one picture of my little girl too.

She'll never win in Madison Square Garden, but she'll always be our champion.

Gabby.
a.k.a. "The Gabster", "Gabbers", "Miss Gabby", "Gabbyella".

Number of the beast

Friday, Feb, 8 2013

Do you believe?

And if you did, here is the bigger question; would you give up your job because of the number 666?

I guess some people take this stuff rather seriously because I have a story today about a guy who did just that.

Seems like a stretch, but in his defense there is a rather creepy twist. I'll have it during the show today.

The Watters Plumbing "Drip of the Week" awaits, as does a ReciPIPPA the Week.

And don't forget to listen right up until 6:00 to hear our Famous Dave's "Whatcha Learn on the Show" segment when I chat with a listener about something he or she learned listening to the show. It's your chance to win some free BBQ from Famous Dave's!

Did you hear about the kid who tossed a grenade at school?

Thursday, Feb, 7 2013

It's true.

This is a story I'll talk about on the Thursday PhilCast.

A young boy throws a grenade in a classroom.

He was suspended of course.

No one was injured.
Why?

Because it was a PRETEND grenade.

These stories about no-tolerance policies at schools have no end it seems. When does the madness stop?

I'll have more Thursday afternoon.

Weigh-In Wednesday; Week 5

Wednesday, Feb, 6 2013

Time for our once-a-week visit with Mr. Scale today on "Weigh-In Wednesday" on the PhilCast.

If you are playing along at home make sure to drop me an email with your update.

As usual today, following my report I've got a couple of health/weight-related stories to share as well.

One of them has to do with a few simple recommendations from a doctor in terms of every day eating habits as it concerns dieting.
