A surprising issue that has arisen in the American political arena is not foreign policy, but rather which breed of dog the Obama's chose to join their family in the White House. Barack Obama has announced that his family narrowed their breed choices to a Labradoodle, a mix between a Labrador retriever and a Poodle, and a Portuguese water dog. Both breeds are large, with curly hair and a mild amount of shedding.
Obama stated in interviews that a limiting factor was his daughter Malia's allergies. They decided on a six month old Portuguese water dog they named Bo. The dog is a gift from Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, who owns several Portuguese water dogs.
Whether a pet's name comes from pop culture, their owner's profession, or is named after a loved one, there are many choices for pets names. The Presidential dog is named "Bo" in reference to singer Bo Diddley. Below are the most popular dog names:
The vets and staff at Eola Point Animal Hospital are simply the best. The vets and staff are highly educated, trained and go beyond the obvious and anticipate all aspects of care needed. No matter how busy they are, they always make time for questions and issues that arise. They greet us each time with humor, kindness and smiles. Our dog actually loves going to see them. He strains at the leash to get in the door. To us, that is the best testimonial of all. We feel blessed to have such wonderful, skilled, kind and knowledgeable vets and staff to assist our little member of our family.
