More on the Kansas Governors Race

Now a dog is barred from entering.


KWCH-TV reports that Terran Woolley, of Hutchinson, decided to file the paperwork over the weekend for his 3-year-old pooch, Angus, to run for the state's top office after reading stories about six teenage candidates. The teens entered the race after learning Kansas doesn't have an age requirement, something lawmakers are seeking to change.

Westminster Throws Pekingese a Bone

Madison Square Garden took a break from "Linsanity" on Tuesday and cheered for a Pekingese named Malachy.

In a deservin win, the Peke whose smushed-in face frames a mop of flyaway fur and whose pace rivals a snail's, became America's top dog by winning best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club.

This little dog beat out the likes of a Dalmatian, German shepherd, Doberman pinscher, Irish setter, a Kerry blue terrier and wire-haired dachshund. A 4-year-old pompom, Malachy wobbled to his 115th overall best in show title.

More than 2,000 purebred dogs in 185 breeds and varieties competed in the nation's most prestigious pooch parade. When it came down to a best of seven, Malachy was the last to enter the darkened ring.

The champion at Westminster wins a coveted silver bowl, but not a cent. Instead, the honor of this title lasts a lifetime for any owner, and brings a wealth of opportunity in breeding potential.

This was the fourth time a Peke won at Westminster, and the first since 1990. David Fitzpatrick, who co-owns Malachy with Iris Love and Sandra Middlebrooks, said the cute pompom was likely headed back to East Berlin, Pa., for a life in retirement.


Modern Family Quotes from 'Good Cop, Bad Dog'

Phil and Claire swap parenting roles for the day - Claire will assume the role of good cop and Phil the disciplinarian bad cop.  How will the kids react?  Meanwhile Gloria is at it again, taking in every sob story and stray she comes across, Jay finds himself dispensing business advice to an overzealous entrepreneur about his dog training business scheme, and Cameron is stuck in bed with the flu -- leaving Mitchell torn about the Lady Gaga concert tickets they have for later that night.  Oh my!

Here are tonight's quotes.

Mitchell:  It's the one gay cliche I allow myself.

Manny:  In Europe this would be no big deal.

Claire:  What was good about Luke's report card?

Phil: He didn't lose it.

Phil: Dad wants to go go-carting!

Jay: He a dog, that's new.

Mitchell:  The bed kind of looks like a Rose Parade float.

Mitchell:  But there's that Craigslist killer.

Cam:  Can I get one of my little pudding cups?

Guillermo:  The good dog, bad dog training system...
