There's Political News...
...and then there's POLITICAL NEWS:
The Obama kinder will finally be getting their White House Dog sometime in April. The news, such as it is, is that this won't be the puppy, promised by the POTUS on election night, but a rescue dog. And what kind of rescue dog, you might ask, if you didn't already know? Why, it's going to be a Portuguese Water Dog... just like the two Ted Kennedy owns, and like the ones a lure coursing friend of ours in Texas owns.
It's great that the Obamas are choosing a rescue. It's unfortunate that they are choosing a breed that has so many health problems. They've done their homework well on so many other parts of their lives, but not this time. I guess they didn't get the message from Pat Burns.
Personally.. I'd suggest a Galgo- that's just me ;o)
UPDATE 2/26: Or maybe not. Time will tell.
