First Dog!

first-dogSo, the news everyonehas been waiting for – the Obama’s have decided to get a Portuguese Water Dog as the canine addition to their lovely, smiley family. How exciting! Remember how cute is was when [almost President Elect Barrack mentioned that his daughters ‘could now have a dog’, seeing how that’s what they agreed if he got the Democrat vote? Talk about melting! The whole world stopped for a brief moment to pause and lap that one right up!

So, what are these Portuguese Water dogs like anyway? Well, first off, they chose this breed as they need a ‘hypoallergenic’ dog as little Malia is allergic to dogs [imagine? how awful!]and these fellas have a great reputaion; Medium sized, these hardy dogs are lively and sensible but also very loyal, they’re affectionate and good with children, easy to train and I guess, one of the most important things is that they’re so darn cute! Those ears are just crying out to be ruffled!

Obama also mentioned that they wanted to get a shelter dog. Now, I presume that the dog they’ll be getting at the end of April will be a shelter dog, I just couldn’t get confirmation of that. Why the end of April? Well, the family have a little ‘Spring Break’ planned around that time and it wouldn’t do to upset Doggie and take him off on hols or *shock horror* leave him in kennels when he’s only just arrived. And apparently, the arguments have already begun over what the new First Mutt will be called…
