Just to conclude our series on leaders dogs Cllr Roy Connell was asking if I had found a picture of the new Obama Dog -which turned out to be a Portuguese Water Spaniel. Well I finally tracked one down.
I took our dog to have his coat trimmed this morning and there was a Water Spaniel in the queue. A long chat then took place as it was explained to me that the Americans trim their Water Spaniels differently to Europeans. The owners of the dog I met this morning were none to impressed with Obama's choice, as they now fear that instead of owning a fairly rare species Water Spaniel will cover the earth.
