The Obama family have decided on a Portuguese Water Dog as the “First” Dog. This is good news. Previously the family had been cited as being undecided between a “doodle” and a Porty. Many dog enthusiasts are breathing a sigh of relief, as designer mutts simply don’t need the extra attention of a doodle in the White House.
Asked about the time frame that the public can expect this new family member to appear, Michelle responded by relaying a cute back-and-forth between herself and Sasha (7 y/o):
“So Sasha says, ‘April 1st.’ I said, ‘April.’ She says, ‘April 1st.’ Got to do it after spring break. You can’t get a new dog and then go away for a week.”
Well said Mrs. Obama, and good on you for sticking to your guns.
So there you have it. The new First Dog, a PWD, can be expected in April – AFTER spring break.
