Pet of the Week - Sasha miniature pinscher

Name: Sasha, as in Olympic skater Sasha Cohen, WWE superstar and investment counselor Sasha Banks, and former first daughter Sasha Obama. Not to be confused with Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen and tennis star Sacha Zverev. (I take off for spelling.) 

Birthdate: October 10, 2012. I'm a spry six-year-old girly-girl. We small gals (9 pounds) age gracefully, so I'll be around a good long time.

Ethnicity: I'm a mixed up Miniature Pinscher, all chocolatey brown and tan. Here's the thing: I get along with children really well. If you're interested in me, but already have a dog, bring your pooch to the shelter for a meet and greet. I'm frisky and run like the wind. But indoors, I turn into a lazy couch French fry. 

Come and get me: I'm available for adoption at 11 am Friday, October 26 at Citizens for Animal Protection (17555 Katy Freeway; 281-497-0591). Tell them, "Ken sent me."

Sasha's just sayin': Remember when singers would do anything to play the Super Bowl halftime? Now it's one step below demonstrating Vitamix blenders on In the Kitchen with David on QVC. Reportedly Rihanna was the NFL's first choice for the Super Bowl, but she said no thanks. Then Pink supposedly said no. Here's a list of others who spurned the Super Bowl before Maroon 5 said yes: Roseanne Barr, Yoko Ono, Mungo Jerry, the Captain (without Tennille), LaToya Jackson, Milli Vanilli, and Channel 11's own Deborah Duncan. Enjoy the game.
