She was a Memphis belle long before she became a bottled-blond spokeswoman. She was an actress, notably in "The Last Picture Show," long before TV's "Moonlighting" reheated her career. Now Cybill Shepherd is clearing her throat in order to sing: She will star in the annual Coconut Ballroom revue at Merv Griffin's Resorts in Atlantic City through Sunday. It's a comeback, of sorts, for the Memphis-born Shepherd. She first gained national attention as a singer on the Miss Teen-age America Pageant in 1966 at 16. "I'm very excited about it," she says.

The cathedral began filling long before the Mass began, the crowd spilling out from the wooden pews onto metal folding chairs set along the side aisles. They came by the hundreds from the city's Polish parishes - St. Adalbert's, St. John Cantius, St. Hedwig's - arriving in flocks of yellow school buses. There were judges and politicians. There were nuns and prominent laymen. There were elderly women in Sunday coats and faded scarves. There were more than 125 priests, a sea of white surplices that filled the sanctuary.

Ch. Covy Tucker Hills Manhattan, a German shepherd that had always been a bridesmaid but never a bride in four previous appearances at the Westminster Kennel Club classic, finally made it to the top at the 111th running of dogdom's most important contest last night in Madison Square Garden. It was the culmination of a frenetic four-year career that had cost owners Jane Firestone and Shirlee Braunstein a quarter million dollars a year and had earned the hard-driving herding specimen 198 show bests, only a few less than the all-time, all-breed record.

When a police officer retires in Bridgeport, the officer usually gets a testimonial dinner, presents, a plaque, a pension and a send-off by the Borough Council. For Drake, retirement was a little different. He not only received the plaque and the send-off, but he also was awarded a home for the rest of his life. Drake is a German shepherd who has spent most of his six years in the K-9 unit in the Bridgeport Police Department, where he served as a partner to Officer David Santoro.

While Cybill Shepherd is best-known as an actress, she'd be happy to trade that reputation for an operatic singing career. That isn't likely to happen, though she did have operatic vocal training during the early '70s. But Shepherd is taking on an increasingly heavy workload as a cabaret, jazz and big-band vocalist - squeezing it in between acting assignments, to be sure. For instance, Shepherd will be the guest star in Merv Griffin's Coconut Ballroom salute to the big-band era, to be presented tomorrow through Sunday at Griffin's Resorts Casino Hotel.

After winning their first game of the season, the Washington Redskins have lost three games in a row. For Leslie Shepherd and Tre Johnson, two former Temple players, that's nothing new. But getting these times confused with the old days, filled with football atrocities, would be a mistake. "We're happy because of football," Johnson said. "That should say it all. " These days, the two former Owls still spend their weekends playing football for a rebuilding team, but on Sunday instead of Saturday, proving that playing for an abysmal college team doesn't necessarily kill one's chances at professional ball.
