Bark Obama

“Sasha and Malia, I love you more than you can imagine. And you have earned the new puppy that is coming to the White House.”

The President-elect has spoken. And to his most important constituency–his two daughters. Apparently a lot of other people are speaking too. When I checked today there were over 400 articles discussing the first dog. Malia has allergies so the pup needs to be hypoallergenic. They’re leaning towards a Golden Doodle. However, People Magazine is running a poll of which hypoallergenic dog they should get. Greys are included and currently hold 17% of the vote.

All’s not lost, however. NPR’s All Things Considered did a piece today on the burning first dog question and guess which dog got airtime?

Yup. We’ve got a lot of work to do.  An economy in a tailspin. Unemployment the highest it’s been in fourteen years. Two expensive wars.

But in politics as in everyday life, isn’t it great to just take a break from the heavy stuff and spend some time focusing on the houndies?

Vote early. Vote often. Vote Greyhoundie.

    Sorry, but I gotta cast my vote for a Maltese puppy! Yes, I am biased. 🙂

    I found your blog via Rita’s Dog Blog. I thought you might be interested in this post on my blog about the campaign for a Greyhound to be first dog…

    I am biased towards Doxies, but Greyhounds are awesome!
