Move Over, Barney: It's Bark Obama
The Obama-Biden administration is already going to the dogs! "Sasha and Malia, I love you both more than you can imagine," the president-elect told them in Tuesday's victory speech. "And you have earned the new puppy that's coming with us to the White House."
Last year, Barack Obama promised his daughters that they could get a dog after the election, win or lose, and Michelle Obama said they'd like a rescue dog. The American Kennel Club conducted a public poll this summer to help them pick a sneeze-free breed (the girls have allergies), and the poodle nosed out the soft-coated wheaten terrier. Yesterday, the Washington Humane Society, the only congressionally chartered animal welfare agency in the United States, began lobbying the family to adopt in their new home town. The shelter's animals train with recovering soldiers from Walter Reed.
There's going to be a Second Dog, too: Joe Biden told reporters his wife promised he could get a new pooch if elected. What kind? Probably something big to run around the Naval Observatory grounds; in the past, he has owned two German shepherds, a black Lab and golden retriever.
