    Get a dog walker to check your dog daily. they don’t charge that much. It will give you peace of mind and leave the TV on the Dog channel. Dogs get attached more than people realize. Thanks for listening.

    Amy, I’ve seen you on ‘Newsmax’’! Would you please run for Governor of our State of Nevada? I’m afraid for the future of Nevada because of these invading Democrats from California. This is a wonderful state. Our present Governor is ruining us! Help!!!?

    I can’t believe anyone would “rehome” their beloved pet because they think they need to spend every waking moment with that dog. Your dog is fine at home all day assuming they are trained to not pee on the floor.

    You will break that dog’s heart by rehoming it…Would you give one of your children up for adoption if you couldn’t spend enough time with them?

    Amy’s husband is a very lucky man.

    Your husband is a total loser.

    1. RussJan 27, 2023 at 6:35 pm


      But hey, there’s no bigger loser than Trump and the GOP, so it makes sense. Losers gonna lose!

    She used to be on an entertaining midday political discussion program on the Las Vegas NBC affiliate, debating a Democratic college professor each day. This is not mentioned on her resume. I’d like to know the name of her regular opponent and I wonder what happened to him. His first name might have been Hugh.
