Oh calm down, I’m not talking about Michelle.
The American Kennel Club had a poll to choose the first Dog for Obama and his family. The Poodle won!
In a national poll of 42,000 people, the Poodle narrowly edged past the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier as the top dog for the Obamas, the American Kennel Club (AKC) said.
Obama has said that he would get his daughters a dog after the election.
What kind of dog would you get for the Obama family?

A hairless mutt.
A Labrador would be cute!
A pitt bull. Obama kind of looks like one.
I think a Bichon Frise would be good. They look a lot like poodles, but without the bitchy attitude. =-)
LOL…title alone got me to laugh
A big, lovable mutt is the best dog.
why do ”they” always choose ”old people” dogs? poodles are fine and smart infact, but girls/boys at the ages of 6 to 12 want a German Shepard, Lab, Doberman, A Great Dane, weiner dogs, collie, etc., I don’t think this is what Obama really wants, but he’s being nice.
They should get a Big Black Dog from a shelter.
Big Black Dogs (BBD) hardly ever get adopted. They are usually the sweetest, too. I think it would be a great move.
Whatever dog he gets, it shouldn’t be some fancypants designer breed. It should be a shelter dog.
I’d get them a Standard. They’re like a completely different dog than the toy. And I just can’t see them with a small dog.
i am with sillyplant – set a great example and get a dog/puppy from a shelter or rescue group. That’s were i got both of my current dogs and they are the greatest dogs, both lab mixes.
yes, yes, for sure, a shelter dog all the way, and even better? a shelter dog thats older – many only want puppies or young dogs…
He looks like he’s never held a dog in his LIFE. What a transparent ploy to seem more down to Earth.
I can’t help but look at the background
and the dignity of it
I don’t like this sort of photoshop
makes me wonder
because I trust it’s photoshop
all dogs nee dlove. whether they are “fancy” or just shelter. geez,. why so bitter about the ”fancy” dogs? love ALL dogs. p.c. police are out.
Let’s just donate Leo to him…….hehehehehheheh
Where is the BEET ? Something is fishy here?
MW why so much hostility because a guy may have never owned or held a dog before? I could see if he was holding an infant that way or something geeze.
And I’d choose a Schnauzer or Yorkie maybe if we’re talking about getting a pet for two little girls. I do agree though that the shelter idea is a good one, what a cinderella story that dog will have!
a freakin huge rotweiler or monster pit bull so he can sic ’em on mccain and/or bush.
okay, that dog is just CUTE. which is saying a lot, since I’m more of a golden retriever and labrador retriever person.
I promise I have no hostilities towards fancy dogs. You can get fancy dogs at shelters (I did! My cockapoo. I’ve also gotten a chihuahua and terrier mixes at shelters.) I suppose I came across wrong. As a dog lover, I do understand the importance of preserving bloodlines in purebred animals, however, I just don’t choose to participate directly.
I just think a person in a place of position and influence should do the right thing by adopting a dog that has been cast off, instead of buying a dog from a breeder.
Your mileage may vary.
a BLACK lab
That has to be photoshopped–I hope. The “looking-into-the-future” expressions on both their faces are hilarious. And yes, he should definitely adopt a dog from a shelter. The White House is big; he could get five or six.
I’m with a black dog, I volunteer at shelters and nearly half are black dogs.
No poodles. They’re so damn ugly. He should get a golden retriever.
Hmm, last I heard, Poodles were the #1 biting dogs, I guess the Don’t like Obama.
I would get a chow. Everyone I’ve ever had was great with children, but you Damn well better stay away from those kids! When my oldest was 1 he was using my parents chow mix to stand up (grabbing her fur and pullin), I did the gentle tap on the hand and said no. This dog was 5 years old, my chows puppy, had known me her whole life. She turned and nipped ME for tapping my hand. The one I have now attacked a previous neighbor. What can I say, don’t beat your kid (and he was beating, not disciplining) around my dog
I do agree with all the shelter dog comments. I actually found her hurt and starving on the side of the road (the vet never could get all the buckshot out of her rear)
Shelter dog all the way, baby! Preferably mixed-breed!
kids want a big dog that they can actually PLAY with. Shelter dogs are best
A shelter dog is an absolutely brilliant idea… not only is it wonderful to save a dog, but very in the spirit of America, right? I mean, the statute of liberty does say:
“…”Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
And shelter dogs are the most loyal and loving dogs you’ll ever find!
A Rhodesian Ridgeback all the way, either from a rescue group or a reputable breeder. They are awesome dogs!
a rottweiler. then he would yell “sick em’ boy!” to john mccaine and the terrorists. oh yeaaaaah. B)
Border Collie and call it Laddie..
um, how did my lover get on here?
any pound puppy would work. let the girls pick, if it’s really for them, and not a media stunt.
I hope he gets a pound dog!
i would go for a welsh corgi. my grandpa has one and she’s the sweetest, cutest dog ever!
just get him one that hikes his leg on bush’s portrait, it shouldn’t take much training.
golden retriever… it’s the family dog
a rat terrier! They get their name thanks to a former president!
isnt it funny, he want a white one as a pet
This is racist. A black man gets to rule the whitehouse with a white dog to lick his feet? What’s next, a white maid? A white butler? A white slut on the side?
Golden Retriever!!!!! The best dogs on the planet.
How about adopting a child in need and a shelter dog. The McCain family did both. Obama could follow their lead. He still needs assistance in becoming a noble individual.
Whats he did a new dog for, he already has michelle!! That is one ugly dog!!!!
Obama is a bitch. I would rather have the dog as President.
