Four-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo was playing on his bike in his front yard in Bakersfield, California on Tuesday. And out of nowhere, the neighbor's dog ATTACKED him . . . latched onto his leg . . . and pulled him off the bike.
But before it could get a LOT worse, Jeremy was rescued . . . by Tara, the family CAT. She came running over, gave the dog a full-body check, chased it off, then came BACK to check on Jeremy. By then Jeremy's mom was there too.
Jeremy needed a bunch of stitches, but he's okay. (It looks like the mom runs off, but she was just making sure the dog's owners had control of it.)
On-Air Weekday Mornings 5 am - 10 am
I grew up Radford, Virginia but I was actually born in Bangkok, Thailand. (Army Brat) While attending Virginia Tech I worked at WKEX Radio. My first job was to wear the station's mascot costume. I was the "Wacky Bird!" After graduation I moved to Myrtle Beach and was a radio reporter for WNMB. I later worked as a reporter for a Florence based TV station. I moved on from there to a radio station in Richmond, VA then on to Cleveland, Ohio where I worked for Power 108. After one winter in Cleveland I knew I needed a little warmer climate.I was hired as the Morning Co-host and News Director of K-92 in Roanoke, VA. It is at that station where I met Mo. He was hired as K-92ï¿½s nighttime jock. After about 8 months, Mo was moved up to do mornings with me. We were dating at the time but nobody knew about it. We got married in 1994 and have been together ever since. Mo and I left K-92 and went to do mornings at B-103 in Richmond, Virginia. Then in 1999 we came to South Florida. We've been on several stations in the West Palm Beach area but KOOL 105.5 has been our professional home since 2003. We have a home in Palm Beach Gardens that we share with our cats Stifler, Stewie and Cleveland. (All strays!)(By the way if my last name seems familiar to those of you who watched the CBS Evening News back in the day, my Uncle was reporter/commentator Eric Sevareid.)
