Allow the president-elect to pick his own dog!
Actually, that headline should read Allow the president-elects daughters to pick their own dog! but it wouldnt fit. I hate to sound grumpy in the holiday season, but I feel very protective of Malia and Sasha Obama and their wish for a dog. I wish it wasnt such a big story. Just about every dog magazine or discussion group Ive seen has asked its readers to Vote on the breed that Obama should get! Others are polling on the question of Shelter dog or purebred? (As if there were no purebreds in shelters; wouldnt that be nice!) Celebrity trainers have weighed in. Headlines proclaim Top Dog Will Have to Watch Step! and Doo the Right Thing, Obama, Forget the Dog! When it comes to dogs unlike the countrys economic troubles or the wars were fighting it seems that everyone has advice for the next First Family. If the Obama family still doesnt have a dog as you read these words, good! People should take their time when choosing the next member of their family.
