Bernice Briscoe is the mother of radio personality Bulldog Briscoe. She is mentioned a few times throughout the show's run. She is seen (though not heard) at the Seaby nominations in "Bad Dog" when her son wins a special heroism award. However, he later uses her as a shield, a treachery which she repays by belting him around the head. Bulldog paid her in one episode (offscreen) to pretend that she was in the hospital so Frasier Crane would take his evening slot. She is played by Peggy Miley.
