First Dog For White House Again.
Never mind global crisis – at least there will be a dog back in the White House.
Its no joke – even though the dog is not due to take up residence until Sasha and Malia Obama return from spring break in April.
The lucky dog is a rescued Portuguese water dog. Although Michelle Obama isn’t sure it will like its name if the first choices are anything to go by. So far they have suggest “Moose” and “Frank.”
On the other hand, given that Barack calls himself a mongrel it would be a little out of character to name the dog in aristocratic fashion.
The huge national focus on the family choice was a little over whelming and came as quite a surprise to the first family (welcome to the top job) but Michelle said it was “all great and gracious attention. People are just being as helpful as you can imagine.”
Connections have already been found with Ted Kennedy who has two Portuguese water dogs. At least it has been a “safe” choice of dog.
We wish them many happy years together with the First Dog – whatever they choose to call it. Any suggestions for a name?
