OT - Who Will Be the First Dog?

Obama closing in on a dog: labradoodle or water hound :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Lynn Sweet

Never mind the economy, or Gaza, or Iran. The real news question for President-elect Barack Obama is the answer to the question:

What kind of dog, and when?

Obama revealed Sunday he is closing in on selecting the first dog -- either a labradoodle or a Portuguese water hound.


"This has been tougher than finding a commerce secretary," Obama told George Stephanopoulos, host of ABC's "This Week."


Apparently, the Labradoodle is a mix of Labrador retriever and poodle! (below)

The Portuguese water dog is a pedigreed pup. "Known for centuries along Portugal's coast," the American Kennel Club notes. (above)

Which one would you choose?

Me I think I'll just opt for the underdog! As usual...
