Puppywatch 2009 BREAKING NEWS

Sorry, I ate some bad food last night and caught some Drudge.

People magazine reports that the Obamas seem to have a breed and a timetable set for adding to the White House family. Plans seem to be to get a Portugese Water Dog – rescue, of course – sometimes after the girls’ spring break.

I’m not sure Mrs Obama has really grasped just how many people her new not-so-humble abode employs, though. “Got to do it after spring break. You can’t get a new dog and then go away for a week.” I’m pretty sure there’ll be one or two folks holding down the old homestead, ma’am….

And yes, that blue dog pictured up above is indeed a PWD, though the Obamas appear insterested in adopting a slightly older animal.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. I feel like I could compete with Malia and Sasha in how excited I am for them to get a dog. Seriously, it’s just going to top their cute little family package with a giant bow when they get that puppy.

    Mrs. Obama didn’t seem too stoked about the name Moose, but personally I think that is the best pet name ever. Go, Moose!
