Leaders' dogs




Earlier posts about politicians dogs brought and unexpected rush of emails-and clearly we aren't the only people watching out for his choice. It all began when Obama agreed to let his daughters have a puppy for the White House In a shrewed public relations move Obama has let it been known that he is choosing between two breeds of dogs; a labradoodle a designer dog if ever there was one-I find myself agreeing with the Daily Telegraph about this matter. The alternative is a Portuguese Water Dog-the rather fine fellow on the right-which is a sort of second cousin the the Irish Water Spaniel.

My favourite is still the Welsh Terrier favoured by JFK (and me) our Toby is pictured (left) other politicians dogs can be viewed by by following the dog tag below
