As late-night host of the Discovery Channel series Naked and Afraid, comedian Josh Wolf was noticed by CMT and was picked up to host their first comedy series, The Josh Wolf Show, in 2015.

Because I love animals (search “Animal Magnetism” on FWWeekly.com) and there’s not a whole heck of a lot to do today, I recommend you head to North Richland Hills for the Retirement Celebration of K9 Breta. At 3pm, help NRHPD celebrate her nine years of service at the community drive-thru event in front of the Public Safety Wing (4301 City Point Dr, NRH, 817-427-7000). K9 Breta and her handler Officer Bulger will be there to take socially distanced selfies and to accept your warmest wishes. The little event is free to attend, but RSVP at Facebook (@NRH.PD) so they know how to handle the traffic control. Woof!
