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...
