Adopt a Diamond: WGN Radio Dog Adoption Segment



Diamonds are a girl’s best friend! Don’t worry boys, this Diamond doesn’t discriminate and would love to be your BFF too. She’s may be older, but tail wags haven’t slowed at about 7 years.  And if you happen to have treats, it’s more wags per minute from Diamond, available for adoption from Chicago Animal Care and Control in the pet adoption segment I do on WGN Radio with Steve Cochran at 9:35AM CDT. You can watch us and Diamond here or on CLTV. Or listen at 720AM.

Diamond has, by all accounts, gone to puppy school, and she still remembers what she learned.

The point of these segments is to support adoption – please help us to find Diamond a-home.

It’s no croc, with “Alligator Robb” in attendance, there has to be alligator humor. Probably, they’ll throw a pie in my face; I will be there too.. Lorne Michaels, legendary producer of “Saturday Night Live,” and scouts from Colbert, Kimmel, Conan and others sneak into iO to frequently check out the talent. Maybe Lorne wants a dog?
