Why should this family mastiff be homeless, along with the family? Because CNN's Soledad O'Brien is personally terminating a lease to remove the gassy creature.

O'Brien is secretary of her co-op board, so she signed the notice terminating the lease of a family that has lived in her building for five years, the last couple of them with their dog, Ugo, who O'Brien finds distasteful. Writes the Post:

O'Brien, in a 20-page affidavit, complained about the pooch's "size, slobbering, shedding, drooling, gassiness and odors."

Also, the cable-news correspondent supposedly got in the face of one of the dog's owners, saying, "What's the matter? Aren't you talking to me?"

Pets are allowed in the building, but apparently everyone hates Ugo, even though he goes to a pet-grooming salon three times per month.

It should be noted that O'Brien recently crossed Fox News Channel, and Fox and Post owner Rupert Murdoch is always (by his own admission) sending the Post out to settle scores. Then again, a TV reporter like O'Brien should know better than to get on the wrong side of a cute animal story.
