Bully Pulpit

Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Truck Stolen in Winston-Salem Had Beloved Chihuahua Inside

WINSTON-SALEM, NC (WGHP) — John Jenkins doesn't care if he gets back his pickup truck that was stolen Monday from the Walmart parking lot on Hanes Mill Road. All he wants -- no questions asked -- is his dog, Boo'kie, who was inside the truck.

Boo'kie is a brown Chihuahua, 7 years old, with one deformed paw. The paw is a daily reminder of a winter storm that killed the rest of Boo'kie's litter when he was a puppy.

"The power went out in the winter, and all of them froze to death but him," Jenkins said. "He got frostbit."
