Affenpinscher wins Best in
Show at Westminster dog show

NEW YORK – When Joe the Affenpinscher won the 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Tuesday night, his handler Ernesto Lara raised him high towards the rafters as if to say, "We did it!" The uncommon dog with a familiar name proved that he was no regular Joe by becoming the first of his breed to win Best in Show at Madison Square Garden. The 9-year-old Affenpinscher´s full name is Banana Joe V Tani Kazari, but his handlers just call him Joe. The Affenpinscher is known for its monkey-like face but human-like qualities. For the last three years,

Comments:
Far more fun than watching the SOTU. The sheepdog that went reserve was also outstanding.

That was a really good BIS grouping to choose from. Congrats to Banana Joe and Swagger! And yes, the show was way more educational and made more sense than wasting another couple of hours of my life watching the SOTU.

Loved the little Affenpinscher and the Bichon. The terrier judge was lazy and the worst I´ve ever seen at Westminster.

I agree this was much better than watching the SOTU.

I loved the American Foxhound and the German Wirehair Pointer. But all of the dogs were special in their own way. Having watched the Westminster Dog Show for three years now, I am partial to the herding and working dog groups, as well as the sporting group. I learn so much, and there are always new breeds I´ve never heard of. I´m fascinated with the history of each breed and their unique purposes.

All jokes aside, I really really thought the Portuguese water dog would win, just to be pc and all. There were certainly many new breeds seen. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the event. Nothing says loving like a dog.

I agree the Affenpinscher was adorable, but I´m partial to Bichons. We are now down to one. Our beloved little 12 yr old had to be put down in Sept. because of an anurysim. His cousin, Lady Madeline is 13. We ALL grieved.

Anyway, watching the dog show was sooo much better than listening to another lecture from the One.

Absolutely loved the sheepdog! What a glorious representative of the breed! I loved them all. I tend to agree with y´all on the Terrier Group judge.

Loved this alternate dog show. It had so much more class. So many cute pooches but Swagger (what a perfect name) was my favorite.

My daughter and I had fun playing fashion police critiquing the ´couture´ of the women handlers. Where, oh where, do they get their duds and shoes? From suits not even carried by Goodwill anymore to MOB dresses from the fifties to shoes I´ve never seen in any era? They seem to be parodying the parody "Best in Show."

But love the show and never miss it.

The Affenpinscher is cute. Not very common - I´ve seen one a couple times. I like when an old hound dog wins. Does that happen anymore? Maybe next year.

Scrap metal find turns out to be

A $14,000 jumble sale find turned into millions of dollars for a man who´d been thwarted in his attempts to turn a quick profit by selling the tiny ornament to scrap metal dealers. The man, who hails from the Midwest but wishes to remain anonymous, had been left financially stretched after he apparently overestimated what the tiny golden egg would be worth once melted down. He´d been hoping to make $500. In a fit of desperation one night last year, he typed "egg" and the name engraved on the clock it contained -- "Vacheron Constantin" -- into Google.

Betty Regina Leininger of Frisco, Texas, awarded the top prize to Sky at this year´s event in Madison Square Garden in Manhattan. The win makes it the 14th time the wire fox terrier has won the competition, more than any other breed since the show´s first staging in 1877. The wire fox terrier´s last win was in 1992. No other

Women´s rights activist Sandra Fluke appears to be moving forward with a run for Congress. Fluke has filed with the California state Democratic Party to seek its endorsement in the race for retiring Rep. Henry Waxman´s (D-Calif.) seat, according to the state party Web site. A state party delegate confirmed to Post Politics that Fluke has filed and paid the fee to appear on the ballot this weekend. Fluke hasn´t officially announced her campaign or filed with the Federal Election Commission, and she didn´t immediately return a request for comment. But filing for the state party´s endorsement means she´s now

The president’s problem right now is that people think he’s smart. They think he’s in command, aware of pitfalls and complexities. That’s his reputation: He’s risen far on his brains. They think he is sophisticated. That is his problem in the health insurance debacle. People have seen their prices go up, their choices narrow. They have lost coverage. They have lost the comfort of keeping the doctor who knows them and knows they tend to downplay problems and not complain of pain, and so doing more tests might be in order, or tend to be hypochondriacal and probably don’t need

Is Obamacare Challenging
Enough for Obama?
Bloomberg, by Margaret Carlson    Original Article

Two statements explain the huge failure of Obamacare. One is by President Barack Obama, the other is about him. The first was made in St. Paul, Minnesota, at the end of the 2008 primary campaign, when candidate Obama predicted that generations would look back and see his nomination as “the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.” Couple this with the assessment of his closest aide, Valerie Jarrett, about his exceptionalism. “He knows exactly how smart he is,” she told Obama biographer David Remnick. “And he knows that he has the

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
