    Default Obama family picks Portuguese water dog

    Portuguese water dog

    It's official. The Obama family will be getting a dog in April. The much-anticipated announcement came from Michelle Obama during an interview with People magazine.
    The first lady told the magazine the family will be getting a rescue Portuguese water dog who is "old enough and a match for the family dynamic".
    Obama said the presidential pooch will arrive at the White House in April after daughters Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, return from spring holiday.
    The choice of a rescue dog will bring joy to animal rights groups who have been urging the Obamas to adopt a pet from a shelter.
    Senator Ted Kennedy should also be pleased with the selection. He owns two Portuguese water dogs and lobbied hard for the breed.
    Mrs Obama said the family is still sorting out what to call the dog. She said the names the girls have chosen, including Moose and Frank, are "really bad".

    Yeah, I'm sure the dog is cute to them and it will be well-loved but...the one in that pic is a little "breath-taking."

    I am so very happy that they got a rescue dog though. Good for them. (and the dog!)

    They DO look a little like labradoodles, and a bit like the hair of Wheaton Terriers. I walk a Wheaton and they don't shed but they do need to be washed more often.

    but now it seems like if any public figure gets a dog that isn't from a shelter, they get hell for it.
    pretty soon, you'll get hell unless you adopt some old, decrepit and retarded dog with missing limbs.
