Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer. The American Kennel Club took a poll to rank the top dogs in pop culture. Nearly 70,000 voters picked their favorite, and the winner was Charlie Brown's sly dog, Snoopy. My Texas cousins would want me to mention that top Aggie Reveille came in second. Number seven was a doggie in the window.

(Soundbite of song, �How Much is That Doggie in the Window�)

Ms. PATTI PAGE (Singer): (Singing) How much is that doggie in the window?

(Soundbite of dog barking)

WERTHEIMER: The singing rage, Ms. Patti Page.
