What "new puppy" should President-Elect Obama bring to the White House?

You all just heard him...

"Sasha and Malia, I love you both so much, and you have earned the new puppy that's coming with us to the White House".

What kind of puppy will it be!? What would you suggest?

definitely a corgi puplet

It should be a rescued mutt! (Mutts are the best, and of course we want to help a shelter pup.)

He owes it to them, considering their IMMENSE support.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:25 PM

+1 for corgi.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:25 PM

The Queen favors corgis...

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:26 PM

I hope they rescue a dog from a DC area shelter.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:29 PM

Agree...pound puppy.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:33 PM

The underdog!

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:38 PM

Maybe kind Mr Hand and Ms Prettynails will give them one of the shiba-inu pups. It'd be used to the spotlight.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:38 PM

You cannot go wrong with a Pug.
Politicians and visiting dignitaries would be powerless against a Pug. They'd see its cute little face and totally be on board with our policies.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:41 PM

my mother predicts (and i agree) something either like a bichon, OR a lab/retriever type.

but the puppy in the picture here looks pretty good, too.

and: congratulations to everyone who voted n stoated!

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:41 PM

Yes, rescue pup for sure! As long as he's rescuing the nation, and all.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:41 PM

+1 for Corgi as well!

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:42 PM

Wouldn't a Corgi be a great White House dog? Smart, friendly, active, adorable. I think it'd be cute to see one try to herd all the secret servicemen into one room. >.<

I vote for a shelter mutt. The Washington Animal Rescue League has tons, they do great work. Transcend breed, vote mutt!

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:53 PM

A corgi is too royal family. My best choice would be a pug, but that's because I love pugs. Maybe a miniature schnauzer?

My vote is for a shelter pup! Maybe not from a DC shelter--urban shelters don't get a lot of puppies--but he could find one in Illinois, or Virginia, or, hm, (consults electoral map) Iowa.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:53 PM

Oh, gosh. There are just 13 comments/suggestions so far and I'm already saying, "Oh, that's good!" and "Oh, that's good, too!" and being totally torn! (I ask, why must cuteness bring such strife?)

That said, I think a rescue hound would be the best, but I am definitely a strong corgi supporter! It would be so great if it could be both. I'm sure whatever is chosen, though, will be tewtally luffed.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:55 PM

cuuuuuuutest puppy ever!!!

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:55 PM

i vote welsh corgi all the way!

or.... i mean, why cant they get a cat too!?

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:57 PM


 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 10:59 PM

This and the thing about him taking his kids trick-or-treating despite all the stress he must have had been going through...I vote Obama as best daddy ever!

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:00 PM

a pair o' corgi...one for each of them, of course.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:02 PM

It's gotta be a shelter mutt. It just goes with the theme--- multi-racial, from humble beginnings... HOPE!!!

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:03 PM

some sort of terrier...

"He pals around with TERRIERS" don cha know.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:03 PM

You guys, corgis are great, but remember this is for the White House. We need an American symbol, and they're are so tied with English royalty. Definitely a good mutt. I live basset mixes, but also I think a longer legged dog would be great, so the girls can chase it over the White House Lawn and force the Secret Service to chase THEM.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:07 PM

Another vote for Pound Puppy.

ooh, aah, hmm
 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:09 PM

Well I vote for retriever from a shelter

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:12 PM

A shelter mutt. And why does it have to be a puppy? I think they should get an elderly dog that would have trouble otherwise finding a loving home.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:19 PM

How about a lovable Lab?

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:31 PM

I aslo hope they rescue a shelter dog. It's the canine version of the American dream. One day you live in a cage in a room full of other unwanted dogs and the next day you're peeing in the oval office. Now that's Ameirica!

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:31 PM

The humane society already reported that they will get an adopted dog. I hope they stick with this. I think there are plenty of puppies that need new homes, and are easier to train. But yes, in general older dogs are less adoptable and people should consider them.

Yes we can!

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:34 PM

I believe the Obamas are already planning to adopt a rescue dog. Given current prejudices and the spread of breed-specific legislation, a pit bull or pittie mix would be a fabulous (and loyal and adorable) choice.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:35 PM

King Charles Cavalier Spaniel! They're the friendliest dog in the world!

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:36 PM

A mutt and must have a kitty too.

Hon Glad
 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:36 PM

Definitely a resQ doggy. Heck, the White House lawn is giant -- why not adopt a couple?

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:38 PM

Best Friends mounted a campaign to get the Obamas to pledge to adopt, and they agreed. The First Dog will be a rescued dog.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:39 PM

LOL at the bone chewing sounds, I like to dub that sound for doggeh chewing too. This puppeh is really cute!
I'm lame at remembering dog breeds, but I'd suggest a shelter pup.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:42 PM

A newfie puppy! There are plenty of rescue newfies that would love the white house lawn!

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:57 PM

lol @ trin.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:58 PM

Well, President Elect Obama recently mentioned that Malia is actually allergic to dogs, so they'll probably be looking into something that won't make her feel awful all the time. I vote Golden Doodle, myself.

 |  Nov 04, 2008 at 11:59 PM

The yanyg yanyg yanyg of a shelter rescued puppeh of course! Come to think of it the white house is in desperate need for some rescued LOLcats too.

 |  Nov 05, 2008 at 12:05 AM

Obviously they need an American Cocker Spaniel. Not that I'm at all biased.

 |  Nov 05, 2008 at 12:05 AM

WHATEVER THEY WANT. (ResQ dog is good idea).

But I think the oval office should have a marmie.

 |  Nov 05, 2008 at 12:20 AM

pugs! hundreds of them!

 |  Nov 05, 2008 at 12:21 AM

Even though I voted for him, I have to respectfully disagree w/ the President-Elect.

They should get a soft, squeezable kitteh.

Hey, he said we wouldn't agree with all of his decisions.

 |  Nov 05, 2008 at 12:24 AM

omg i LOVE you Meg.
that possibly is my favorite part of the speech.


 |  Nov 05, 2008 at 12:33 AM


Stuff those sissy little dogs, get a REAL dog hehe

Miss Malice
 |  Nov 05, 2008 at 12:34 AM

Wasn't it also leaked somewhere that Joe the VP gets a pooch, too? o.o

That aside... hopefully we get some feline representation in the Obama administration. Preferably something orange. >_>

 |  Nov 05, 2008 at 01:56 AM

There are some really good shelters in Northern Virginia where I come from, about twenty minute's drive outside of DC. I hope that they adopt a shelter mutt puppy from one of them!
Cute Overload, I will be looking to you for up to the minute updates on the presidential puppy position!
