Kicker: Small dog warning


MARY REICHARD, HOST: We’ve all received alerts warning us about severe weather. It could be a flash flood watch, a severe thunderstorm or freeze warning.

But this is a new one!

Earlier this month, Cleveland’s National Weather Service office issued a “Small Dog Warning.”

Forecasters said that wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour might be powerful enough to topple your Pomeranian!

Not an official warning, of course, but it’s good advice with winds that strong! As the agency cautioned on its Twitter account: “Hold on to your pooch!”

It’s The World and Everything in It.
