The traditional poofy poodle dog as seen in movies set in Paris.But this was not just any poofy poodle dog. It was the best poofy poodle dog at the Westminster Kennel Club Show, which is sort of the Olympics of the mutt world.That made it the top poofy poodle dog in the United States.Then the TV announcer identified the dog's hometown and owner.

Here's one way to ease the pain: Invest in something that benefits from high gasoline prices. What are the best plays on expensive oil? "I don't think that's a real hard question," said James Paulsen, chief investment strategist at Wells Capital Management, which is a unit of Wells Fargo. "Oil stocks will do well or you can play commodities and basic materials because commodities are going up and the dollar's becoming weak."

NEW YORK -- As the market sold off over the past few weeks, fund managers have scoured their charts looking for quality stocks that have fallen noticeably. At the top of that list, said Don Hodges, co-portfolio manager of the $900 million Hodges Capital Management in Dallas, are industrial companies. Among the sector's possibilities are a group of mid- and large-cap companies that have performed well over the past few years. But as talk of inflation fears and another interest-rate increase overshadows all other market news, shares in some of these companies have been hit hard.
