Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
Many places I go, I now get hit with, “Have you got a dog yet?”
It’s the worst kept secret on the planet, but the true story has been distorted. The general consensus, I have found, is that my dear, sweet, adorable wife, desperately wants and deserves a pet, but her dog-hating, stubborn, no-good husband simply won’t oblige.
Until today, I had forgotten how far down the hieracrchy I would slip if the Fischer household did, indeed, have a dog. Then I went to Kopp’s to pick up a half gallon of one of the flavorsof the day. It happens to be another of the wonders of life that rates higher than yours truly.
So, for all of you who stop and interrogate me about dog updates, keep this in mind. If and when I cave and we get a dog, the totem pole will look something like this:
2. OUR CHILDREN
3) OUR DOG (s)
4) THE CONTENTS OF OUR REFRIGERATOR
5) THE MICROWAVE
6) THE TELEVISION
7) JENNIFER’S CAR
8) THE OUTDOOR PATIO
9) OUR GRILL
10) KOPPS’S COTTON CANDY CONFETTI CUSTARD
There’s probably some others I’m forgetting but the point is, I’m no longer in the top ten in the hit parade.
And many of you (you know who you are) are still encouraging my dear wife to get a dog, or more than one.

Care to guess what flavor Kopp's has today and how many times I have been reminded?
