The "First Puppy"

In Barack Obama's speech last evening, he mentioned that his daughters were going to get the puppy they've been wanting for when they move into the White House. Regardless of how you felt about this election, please consider contacting the Obama's to encourage them to adopt a homeless pet instead of buying from a breeder or something. What a great message that would send for the First Family to adopt a dog from a shelter, humane society or rescue! You can share your thoughts here.


Caveat said...

My personal opinion is that they are better off going to a good breeder and getting a properly bred and raised pup the first time out.

Shelter dogs are fine in some ways, not so fine in others.

Of course, when they are ready, they should get an APBT. The choice is clear!


In his press conference, he did mention that they would prefer to adopt a shelter dog, they are just concerned about the likelihood of finding a hypo-allergenic dog in a shelter, since one of his daughters is allergic. Seems like his heart is in the right place.

These are the dogs of HELP FIDO...our dogs...this is why we are here...
