Obamas leaning toward water dog
Michelle Obama dropped the news during an interview with People Magazine. She said the First Family hopes to find one that is “old enough” and get it through a shelter or rescue group.
“Temperamentally they’re supposed to be pretty good,” she said of the breed. “From the size perspective, they’re sort of middle of the road –- it’s not small, but it’s not a huge dog. And the folks that we know who own them have raved about them. So that’s where we’re leaning.”
Among those folks is Sen. Edward Kennedy, who has two Portugese water dogs of his own.
Michelle Obama said the family has been discussing names for the new pooch — Frank and Moose have been proposed by the Obama’s daughters — but none has been agreed upon.
