Welcome to ‘Russell’ mania!
Two new dog breeds make

Welcome to the ruff club. Two new breeds will make their debut at the 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show next month — further proof that every dog indeed has its day. The tenacious Russell terrier and the athletic treeing walker coonhound will strut for the first time on the dog world’s grandest stage: Madison Square Garden. “It´s an honor and a privilege. We´ve worked so hard at it,” said Sue Sobel, 66, a tireless booster of her breed who will show two Russell terriers, Meadowbrook Madison and Foxfield Pepper Patch.

Those coonhounds have sweet faces, as do the Russell terriers. I prefer a calmer breed for around the house - like my little lazy weenie girl Dixie and her sweet sister Delta.
They get frisky when outside but I keep them on an extender leash.

"treeing walker coonhound"?

And the Society for the Perpetually Offended hasn´t stepped forward to express their outrage?

I have 5 dogs. One of them is an English American Coon Hound. Same size as the Walker but the white part of the legs has ticking (spots) like a German Shorthaired Pointer. Great dog, very affectionate and good with kids, but like the article says, needs lots of room and likes to be outdoors. She doesn´t bark, she bellows. Sounds like "Woooo".

We had to sadly put our 15 year-old Jack Russell down last month. He was the sweetest and funniest dog. He is so missed. He was a great protector too. I miss him.

Immigrants fighting deportation in San Francisco will no longer be shackled during most court hearings, according to a settlement reached with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The settlement, which received preliminary approval from a federal judge Thursday, is limited to San Francisco Immigration Court but could affect the way immigrants are treated in other jurisdictions. People held at detention centers in the San Francisco area are transported to court shackled at the wrists, waist and ankles, attorneys for four immigrants wrote in a federal lawsuit filed in 2011. The shackles are kept on during court hearings, which is humiliating to

First Lady Michelle Obama chowed down on a Subway turkey sandwich Thursday after asking the popular sandwich chain to join her campaign against childhood obesity. During a press conference at a Subway close to the White House, Obama recognized Subway´s new $41 million marketing campaign, launching Feb. 1, in helping her spread her healthy eating initiative for kids. Obama was joined by athletes Michael Phelps, Justin Tuck, gymnast Nastia Liukin and Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle. The brand´s campaign includes the slogan "Playtime Powered by Veggies," a Healthier America logo, with signs posted at children´s eye level at Subway counters, and

UPDATE: The filmmaker behind "2016: Obama´s America" was briefly handcuffed during his arraignment in New York on charges he violated campaign finance laws in 2012. Dinesh D´Souza pleaded "not guilty" Friday in New York during his arraignment on federal charges that he violated campaign finance laws by donating $20,000 to a friend who unsuccessfully ran for Hillary Clinton´s U.S. Senate seat in 2012. D´Souza´s bail was set at $500,000 and he was released after promising that one financially responsible person would sign "a personal recognizance bond" within a week. The case was then adjourned until March 4. D´Souza spent six

Today, a new object has been put on display at the British Museum: a tablet, light brown, covered in cuneiform script. The piece is approximately 4,000 years old, and approximately the size of a smartphone. It was discovered in modern-day Iraq—ancient Mesopotamia—and, upon deciphering, it seems to tell a story that will be familiar to many: that of a boat that will help a man to survive a flood. It mentions animals, and specifies that they should enter the boat "two by two." Except the vessel in question isn´t a boat—at least, not in the way we tend to think

It´s no wonder there´s been so little outrage from the Left over the phenomenon known as the Knockout Game. The Left loves the game and is increasingly expert in knocking out conservative opposition with one swift and lethal blow to the head of any and all who oppose progressivism. We on the right have seen a rapid succession of punches aimed at taking down everyone and everything conservative. Whether it is potential presidential candidates or conservative organizations like the Tea Party, the aim is the same. Go in from behind in packs and sucker punch the unwitting victims, using governmental entities

Friday, the venerable New York Times Magazine published a mammoth 5500-plus word profile of Hillary Clinton and the world around her. It is titled "Planet Hillary," and two words you will not find on this mammoth planet are "Libya" and "Benghazi." The Times´ exhaustive look at Hillary -- her past, present, future, and those around her -- just didn´t have the room to mention the four Americans left dead in Benghazi because Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s State Department failed to protect them despite more flags than you´ll see flying in the Kremlin. Well, as the saying goes, "What difference at this point does it make?"

The federal court system was hit with a denial-of-service attack Friday afternoon that brought several government Web sites to a halt. PACER — the site for accessing the electronic court filing database — as well as uscourts.gov and various other Web sites belonging to federal courts around the country, were affected by the hack, officials said. Among the downed sites was that of the Middle District of Florida, which was unavailable for about four hours. PACER administrators posted a service advisory warning that some visitors may have trouble accessing the service.

He mentioned her to a friend, who told him she was out of his league. But he persisted. His friend brought him to a party where he found an opportunity to strike up a conversation with her. One thing led to another. He took her to drinks. She mentioned she liked baseball, rooted for the Washington Nationals. They had that in common. So for their next date he took her to play

Democratic campaign operatives have been getting worried that the White House wasn’t doing enough to help them in the midterms, and that President Barack Obama didn’t care enough to change that. Friday, Obama provided the answer: David Simas, a longtime aide who returned to the White House after running polling and focus groups for the re-election campaign, was named director of a new Office of Political Strategy and Outreach. (Snip) Repeatedly, in public and private, Obama has been calling the November elections a top priority. He knows what’s at stake: Democrats losing the Senate would mean a daily barrage

The New York Times Magazine for this Sunday depicts former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as a bizarre-looking planet, inspiring quite a range of reactions. The cover accompanies the story “Planet Hillary” by Amy Chozick, a look at the potential 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner. Clinton, who left her post at the State Department last year, has not confirmed that she will be revving up her second presidential campaign, though that hasn’t stopped supporters from raising funds and preparing for the campaign. The magazine’s design director, Arem Duplessis, said in a blog post that the idea to turn Clinton into a disembodied

Patrick Festa says that after President Barack Obama left his Scranton, Pennsylvania, home following a November 2011 visit, things got “a little creepy.” Friends and neighbors flocked to the house to pose for pictures in the dining room chair where Obama sat for lunch before giving a speech urging a payroll tax-cut extension. Festa and his wife, Donna, kept the president’s used teacup and napkin in the same spot for “too long.” Today, the thrill of that presidential visit has faded amid the financial strains that Festa, 51, a third-grade teacher, says have intensified over the last two years.

As President Obama prepares for his State of the Union speech Tuesday night, he has solicited members of his Cabinet for ideas of executive actions he could take without Congressional approval that would further his goal of tackling income inequality. In the first weeks of January, Obama has repeatedly said he he has a “pen and his phone” and will use them to bypass Congressional gridlock and help his agenda. While White House spokesman Jay Carney said he didn´t want to preview the president´s speech, he said no one should be surprised that he´s going to “reemphasize his capacity” as

The Democrats´ new much-vaunted master plan for annihilating the Tea Party movement calls for aggressive class warfare, demagoguery, and lying about the beliefs, motives, and goals of Tea Party supporters, Sen. Chuck Schumer revealed yesterday. Echoing President Obama´s infamous "bitter clingers" remarks, the New York Democrat argued that Tea Party supporters are cartoonish figures who are easily ridiculed. Invoking all the usual liberal cliches about conservatives, Schumer said the Tea Party is successor to "the Know-Nothings, Prohibitionists, Father Coughlin, and Huey Long." In other words, he believes the movement is a collection of hicks, yahoos, neo-Luddites, fascists, male chauvinists, and racists fearful

If there is anything New York doesn´t need it´s more reasons for Empire State residents to flee. Over the last decade (2001-11) New York´s population fell by 1.6 million. Many disgruntled New Yorkers said enough, packed up and left the state. This was a larger population drain than suffered by any other state. Congratulations. That´s why Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo´s declaration that "extreme conservatives ... have no place in the state of New York" was so dumbfounding. Is it just me or does it seem like only yesterday that "progressives" like Mr. Cuomo were lecturing us about embracing "diversity"? As they say in

Mitt Romney, Republican Party´s 2012 presidential nominee, on Friday fueled the talk that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will join the 2016 GOP race, along with several others including embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Ruling out another run during a "Today" show interview, Romney also said that likely Democratic presidential challenger Hillary Clinton is beatable “because I think people recognize that the country is just not doing what it needs to do.” In waving off a third bid, Romney said, “This is a time for Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Mike Pence, John Kasich,

In politics, lying is the new sex. Even the lesser sin, exaggeration, is grounds for questions about your suitability to run for office. Americans may be becoming more like the French in tolerating peccadilloes (just ask Rep. Mark Sanford of South Carolina or Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana about surviving a sex scandal), but get a detail wrong about whether you divorced at 21 or at 19, and woe unto you. That’s what happened to Wendy Davis over the weekend. You may know her as the Texas state senator in pink sneakers who delivered an 11-hour filibuster against abortion restrictions in June.

The Pentagon on Wednesday is expected to announce widespread changes to rules governing religious items and religion-based physical attributes that service members can maintain while in uniform — including beards, some religious tattoos, and turbans. NBC News obtained an early draft of the new Department of Defense instruction which states that the military will make every effort to accommodate “individual expressions of sincerely held beliefs” (conscience, moral principles, or religious beliefs) of service members. It goes on to say that unless doing so could have an adverse impact on military readiness, unit cohesion, good order and discipline, health and safety,

What’s so great about Zulu? To answer that question properly, you need to pass this test first. 1) Do you know Men of Harlech off by heart? 2) Can you name at least half of the 11 Victoria Cross winners in the film (by their nicknames where possible) without resorting to Google? 3) Have you ever found yourself stirred to ridiculous feelings of patriotism by John Barry’s magnificent film score on the morning commute? I really hope someone else answers “yes” to all three, otherwise you can chalk me up as a lone madman. Zulu--released 50 years ago this week--is

Maybe it’s because “Bubba” just doesn’t have the same je ne sais quoi as the “Gipper,” but Bill Clinton is apparently jealous of the reverence Republicans give former president Ronald Reagan. According to the much-talked-about New York Times Magazine feature story on the world around Hillary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton, the former president is described as miffed that Democrats don´t treat him like Republicans do Reagan. Amy Chozick reports: “People close to Bill Clinton have told me repeatedly that it irks them that Democrats don’t talk about the dignified, slimmed-down, silver-haired former president with the same reverence Republicans give Ronald Reagan.” Her story,

A clear majority of the American people say that the Obama administration is not competent to manage the affairs of the U.S. government, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday. Those who believe the Obama administration is incompetent weigh in at a clip of 53-42 – a margin of 11 points. In addition, more people believe that the president is not even paying attention to what’s going on than the contrary: 47-45. (That may be because the president finds out about all those “phony scandals” by reading about them in the news.) The president gets a negative score on a

Attorney General Eric Holder reiterated his 2009 claim that Americans are a “nation of cowards” on racial issues on Thursday. Holder’s effort to profile the entire nation as cowards came during a friendly interview with the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, where was asked if he would take back his 2009 remarks. “I would not take that back,” he replied. As usual, Holder did not brave questions from the audience or from other reporters in the room. In 2009, Holder claimed that “though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been and we
