• Meet “Anderson Pooper,” the Disabled Racing Dog


    The headline says it all, folks! Every year at Emerald Downs, a Washington radio station hosts an annual “Wiener Dog Rally.” This year, one of the contestants was a tutu-wearing, wheelchair bound canine named Anderson Pooper!

    It’s not exactly clear why the pup was named after CNN’s Silver Fox, but does it really matter? The slow-motion effect as Pooper crosses the finish line is priceless, not to mention hearing the excited race-goers chanting “Come on, A-Poop!” and “Go, Pooper!”

    The disabled dachshund didn’t need to win the race in order to melt hearts. Heck, it didn’t even need a fully working pair of hind legs to try. And with the world nearly crumbling, isn’t that the spirit we really need to see more of right now?

    Fox has history in broadcasting that spans two decades. From his early days as an FM host and club DJ in the mid-90′s to his later experiences in political talk radio, he has always had a knack for combining topical news with his love for popular culture. Those experiences culminated in his position as executive producer for several radio shows featured in the TALKERS Heavy 100. Originally from New York, Fox has made the great pilgrimage down to sunny south Florida.
