Must Love (Portuguese Water) Dogs

The Barry Bunch

Guess what America? Your prayers have been answered. No, your 401k hasn’t suddenly re-surged and your home is still worthless, but the Obama’s have finally decided on the newest, furriest member of the first family: a rescue Portuguese Water Dog.


“Temperamentally they’re supposed to be pretty good…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.”

In other words, it’s not a girly dog, won’t shed all over the place, and Ted Kennedy just loves them.

Sounds perfect to First Lady Michelle Obama. Except for one thing.

“Oh, the names are really bad. I don’t even want to mention it, because there are names floating around and they’re bad. I think, Frank was one of them. Frank! Moose was another one of them. Moose. I said, well, what if the dog isn’t a moose?”

Then you won’t have to worry about Sarah Palin aerial hunting it while it frolics unsuspectingly on the White House lawn, now will you?
