Scattered showers and storms could become strong to severe this afternoon into the evening. Primary threats are large hail and heavy rainfall causing flooding in poor drainage areas. Damaging winds are included as well and an isolated tornado possibility is very low but not eliminated.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin is seeking the public's help in naming a new white Labrador retriever puppy.
Fallin said Thursday she is asking people to visit her Facebook page and offer ideas. Among the more than 350 names suggested on her page are Freedom, Reagan, Okie, and Cowboy.
Fallin and her husband, Wade Christensen, already have a young Labrador mix named Burney, a rescue dog found abandoned near a grassfire in northeast Oklahoma City two years ago. Fallin's longtime dog Rascal died last year.
Fallin described the new puppy as "darling," but says he's already chewed up a pair of shoes.
She added: "He's just as cute as he can be, but he sure likes to bite."
