Second, Rita Braver talked about the koala. Third, Anthony Mason on Dean Koontz and his dog. Fourth, on Isabella Rossellini's interest in animals. Fifth, Bill Geist on the expanding role of goldfish competition.

Jeff Glor presented the news, starting with a wildfire in west Texas, next with Japan. Protestors in Cairo's central square. Death of Sidney Lumet at age 86. Masters golf tournament. Sunny and warm in most of the country.

A difference is that Rebecca Jarvis substituted for Jeff Glor as to the "today's news" segment, which segment on the usual "Sunday Morning" is done by Osgood.

A CBS poll revealed that 89% of us consider that pets are members of the family. 75% believe that pets share personality traits with their owners. Axelrod's piece included a segment with Axelrod's mother, and her dog.
