Why the delay, President Obama?

Still no dog for Malia and Sasha then? Oh come on Barack. You've found time this week to order the closure of Guantanamo Bay, lift the ban on stem cell research,  take the oath of office twice........  Surely you can now spare a little while to attend to important matters?

By the way, I can't help but feel a little hurt about the way everyone seems to think it's so great that the Obama family are black. Yes I agree they're a fine looking bunch. But, speaking on behalf of a dog breed that is, by definition, white, I think all those media commentators could show a little more cultural sensitivity at times.

Oh. Apparently Gail thinks I lack a "historical perspective" on the issue.

Okay, so if George Bush, a "white" President, had a black scottie, wouldn't it be fun if Barack Obama had a "white scottie," ie, a Westie.

Dear 'Anonymous'
A Westie for the White House. I completely agree - see my post 'Decision time' from 4th November 2008!

I agree he should have had a pup by now!! And seriously who really cares that he is black? we just want him to do a good job, that is all. Oh, nice to meet you, stop by some time. =)
