PD Pooch?

Yes, the Obama family finally got a puppy. The much-anticipated dog Bo (or BoBama as John Stewart says) is a Portuguese Water Dog. The first family's choice was apparently a pleasant surprise for Portugal. "Obama's pick for first dog thrills Portugal," according to the headline of this AFP story. Will the increased interest in the breed create a better climate for Portuguese PD? How will the government of Portugal respond? How will the "first dog" fit into America's PD? So many questions for BoBama...

  1. Bo was a gift from Ted Kennedy, right? So, I'm going to advise that Portugal not re-brand itself around a dog. Just a quick thought.
