Here are the highlights from Monday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— A passenger attempted to bring their large pet pig on a US Airways flight at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut. The person said the pig was for emotional support, but the flight crew said it was disruptive as it paced back and forth in the cabin, so the pig was removed from the plane for disorderly conduct.

“They let her take it on?” asked an incredulous Callahan

“It’s legal,” replied Minihane.

In 2012, a federal law allowed certain animals to qualify as emotional-support animals, including monkeys and miniature horses. The hosts couldn’t believe this.

Said Callahan: “You’re kidding. Oh, God. Miniature horses?”

“What are those called when they take the dogs to the nursing homes?” asked Dennis. “Those aren’t rescue dogs.”

Replied Callahan: “Therapy dogs.”

“So this is a therapy pig?” asked Dennis.

“As you know, I’m fostering puppies and we took them to a nursing home a couple of times and it’s great,” said Callahan. “You see folks who haven’t smiled lately in wheelchairs just perk up. … I will not foster pigs.”

— According to People magazine, actor Kirk Douglas died this past week. In actuality, though, the 97-year-old is still alive and well. The magazine’s website accidentally ran an obituary for Douglas on its website that said “DO NOT PUB” at the top, meaning it was not supposed to be published.

Said Callahan: “It was Thanksgiving weekend and we know how that works. Some fill-in producer and they let it slip. … If you’re Kirk Douglas, this a luxury most of us don’t get to experience. He gets to read his own obit.”

“That’s true,” replied Dennis.

“It’s boring, it’s a poorly written obit,” said Callahan. “I’m guessing The New York Times, and the Boston Herald or [Associated Press] has a obit of him, they haven’t published it yet, that’s a little better done than that one.”

Celtics columnist, Chris Forsberg, joined Butch and Gordon Edes to talk about the young core of players, Brad Stevens' need to win, and the tough November schedule that the Celtics struggled through.

Here are the highlights from Wednesday’€™s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with John Dennis and guest hosts Rob Bradford and Jon Meterparel. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still’€™s young daughter was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare type of cancer, in June. According to the girl’€™s mother, Channing Smythe, Still has not paid his daughter’€™s child support for the last four months. Still and Smythe split four years ago after their daughter was born.

The hosts had a tough time believing that Stills was having that much trouble paying for his daughter, especially after he recently made public appearances with her.

Said Bradford: “Here’€™s a weird thing about that is that you have this guy who is constantly seen with his daughter. And bringing her to places, doing things, and we see it all of the time. How is that possible, the whole time, without giving any child support? That seems bizarre.”

“It seems antithetical,” replied Dennis. “If he’€™s willing to go from Cincinnati to Delaware every week and spend quality time with her, wouldn’t the easy part be writing a check every month?”

“What, he shows up and she says, ‘Hey, where’€™s my money?’ ” asked Bradford.

Said Meterparel: “That’€™s what I’€™m waiting for, where’€™s the next layer of this story, he’€™s broke. He’€™s making $507,000 a year, which isn’t much by NFL standards. So clearly there might be a disconnect there.”

— While there have been many protests following the decision to not indict the police officer in the controversial Ferguson case over the shooting of Michael Brown, one African-American man took his voice to YouTube. Charles Patrick Furguson spoke his mind about general race relations, the legal system and police relationships with other African-Americans.

Most of his thoughts go against the grain about how most people feel about the situation at hand, saying a lot of the issues do not lie with the police but with individual people who give the police a reason to arrest them.

The hosts ran a large chunk of the clip and all but applauded the man’€™s opinions.

“You know what’€™s amazing about that?” asked Bradford. “Everything. If you watch it, it’€™s clearly not being read off a script.”

Said Dennis: “There’€™s no notes, he doesn’t look down once. That is off the top of his head.”
